Integrated Cranial Health aims to educate you to every tool available to live a pain free life. We offer base level classes for every interest. The Four Houses series is designed to teach easy-to-learn neural (nervous system) techniques to appease the communication network. We look at the biology of emotions, the pathology of thought and the development of belief from the confines of a physical sound and anatomical structure.
Since we rid the body of extreme pain, we want you to know how to rid extreme pain as well. The Physical Houses address the physical places inside the nervous system that help with organization. The Mental House identifies how thoughts are organized and what we can manually do to calm the Monkey Mind. The Emotional House explains and offers more than one move to remove the hormone ride of highs and lows. The Spiritual Houses is reviewed and looked at from a neurological perspective and why the other houses often require it to feel whole. We look forward to working with each of you to identify your strongest and weakest houses and what to do to balance them and gain an efficient and pain free system.
Each human is made of at least four components. We are bound in the physical form (our body), which has mental thoughts that create emotional reactions which build a personal spiritual truth.
The physical house is the human body itself. The physical body is bound in the present space and time. It has a top and a bottom, and can be identified side to side. It is what you touch and hold in your hands.
The emotional house is the feeling response of the human system. When an individual has an experience, it may generate an emotion to the experience. Learning how to help the physical bound endocrine and nervous system to balance hormonely
The mental house is the mind and the thoughts of the brain. The brain creates images, thoughts, ideas to our current experiences and past experiences. Our thoughts can affect our physical form by moving us away from the bound reality of our form. This can be beneficial and negative-it can also find balance.
The spiritual house is the movement of energy past, present and future. It is working with life energy. It is how the nervous system processes and categorizes pain through the neural network and how the belief systems can inhibit your ability to experience joy and heal. Belief patterns form mental truths which create emotion holds and can cause physical pain.
Bringing balance to the Four Houses allows an individual to not be placing all the responsibility for well being on one house. When we have constructive thoughts, controlled emotional reactions, loving spiritual growth ~ our physical bound system can find freedom in motion and work through the physical compensations.

Carolynn Thompson, L.M.T., C.S.T, ICT, D.oN. has studied chronic pain for over twenty years. When her work was passed off by another therapist, she re-entered the bodywork world and her worth. Through her own removal of chronic pain, she extended the work of Dr. John Upledger, originator of Cranial Sacral Therapy. She has developed sitting, standing and lying down protocols for unwinding the spine manually. Her bodywork is accompanied by nutritional advice that is life actualized and complimentary to treatment. She aims for neurological release and safety so that goals can be achieved within feelings of satisfaction. She recognizes, employs and actively heals the mental and emotional aspects of injury. Carolynn works with all levels of pain and discomfort and her practice is extensive after solving neurological pattern issues in triatheletes and professional athletes to a complete loss of function within the body, including quadrapalegics.
Carolynn teaches to both layman and professionals. Her classes are full of practical information to use immediately within the home or practice. Skill sets can be viewed through the lense of the layman or through the scope of a practice. All bodywork information is paired with how the brain mentally and emotionally responds to injury and how we address both in one session so that an individual can separate, identify and work on what is needed to carry forward and on.
"What a professional can learn, so can the mom... it is only the presentation of understood information that we find a divide... never underestimate why a human heals or how" Carolynn Thompson 2011
Information abounds on our site for the layman and the professional. There are articles written for both platforms. The information presented to layman is worded for practical understanding and education. We hope to help you find metal ease through the information presented, please ask us questions and help make the information begin clearer where you see fit.
Classes and talks are designed just for the layman alone, as well as classes for laymen to learn beside professionals. All classes listed for Professionals only are not available to Laymen unless by personal request.
BodyWork Professionals struggle in numerous genres. Clients want us to be able to assess, alter and heal their injuries within 1-3 visits. We know this is illogical from the standpoint of chronic pain as injured tissue does not heal a chronic pattern in a few hours. Writings, courses, talks and information shared with professionals is to help change the care of chronic pain completely. We employ manual skills that can be used from a gym to a private facility. These skills augment the spine and skull to find balance in structure, but also tone, equalize and help define balance, communication and stimulation of neurological control and balance in the human system bilaterally and equilaterally. Successful practitioners gain skills manually first, learn to address mental discomfort and aim for emotional balance.
