Lauren Porstner

Lauren’s passion is helping people feel better. She is a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) who has been practicing CranioSacral Therapy for over a decade. She first witnessed the calming, healing power of a compassionate touch in 2011 while volunteering as an EMT. In 2012, she received her first CranioSacral therapy (CST) treatment which alleviated her chronic pain and fatigue when, for years, nothing else had. Lauren took her first CST class in 2013 with the Upledger Institute and has gone on to take advanced training courses in Somatic-Emotional Release, Integrating Meridians with CST, The Brain Speaks, CST and Autism, Full Body Presence and many more. She also holds an advanced certification in Manual Lymphatic Drainage, and has been teaching QiGong, Meditation and Stress Reduction classes since 2016. Lauren understands that stress and life events directly impact our physical health; because of this, she has adopted a holistic, mind-body approach to health and wellness.

CranioSacral Therapy is based on Osteopathic techniques and can be used in multiple ways. The main use-case is to eliminate or decrease pain, regardless of the cause. CST is also extremely relaxing and can be used to decrease stress, blood pressure, mild anxiety and depression. People are frequently surprised at how gentle, yet highly effective, the treatments are. Lauren has had a lot of success helping with chronic, complex cases - and The Doctor’s Office is the perfect therapy setting as it allows for a “team practitioner” approach.

Lauren blends all of her Medical and Holistic experience and training into each treatment. Her goal is to promote the body’s own healing processes using gentle techniques, assisting each person to alleviate pain, trauma and dysfunction. She helps to empower each person to obtain their health goals and loves to see people regain hope and a higher quality of life.
