CranioSacral Therapy


Judith Marcus, MA, LMP has been in private practice for over 35 years in Seattle. She specializes in advanced- level CranioSacral Therapy and SomatoEmotional Release as taught by John Upledger, DO and advanced-level Visceral Manipulation as taught by Jean Pierre Barral, DO.

She treats people of all ages, from infants to elders.

A brief summary of her approach involves releasing energetic, cellular and larger tissue restrictions to the nervous system from ALL kinds of injuries, from birth to sports to car accidents, including illnesses and emotional distress.

Just before COVID lockdown she took a course on the Artery System and The Heart, taught by Gail Wetzler for Dr. Jean Pierre Barral.  She is incorporating Tad Wanveer’s Glial Cell work, as well.
