For clients who prefer to stay closer to the city of Columbus, daytime hours will soon be available in Worthington on Wednesday later afternoon and Thursday midday at: 6463 Proprietors Rd. Suite 103 Worthington 43085


Somatic Massage Therapy:  

This is not your typical Massage.  With an emphasis on Craniosacral Therapy, I like to focus our sessions on relieving cellular trauma and pain from the body in a way that meets you in trust and compassion.  Our work together touches into the physical body to release pain and re-align the body with optimized structural posture, but also supports emotional and spiritual transformation.  This work is about Your unfolding into peace and health through your own personal internal healing processes, with helpful and experienced facilitation.  The SomatoEmotional Release work is mostly done in a beautifully set Massage room, but sometimes outside with the horses depending on client’s choice and weather.  With over 20 years in helping clients dealing with chronic debilitating neck and lower back pain, trauma injuries, and also people facing serious illnesses, Sharon Hartnett LMT creates a sacred space for healing and re-connecting to joy!

Pain Relief with Craniosacral Therapy Massage
Craniosacral Therapy Columbus Ohio


Why choose Craniosacral Therapy as your Healing Resource?

The main benefit of Craniosacral Therapy is that it can help you to relieve deeply held stress and pain patterns by working directly with the the body’s own inherent intelligence to self-correct Central Nervous System dysfunctions. An experienced Craniosacral Therapist will evaluate the whole body and prioritize the work based on what the body presents in each moment. Each session begins by listening, melding and releasing myofascial restrictions and adhesions, and by working directly with the Craniosacral rhythm to create balance, flexibility, and an overall sense of wellness. When you feel good on a daily basis, it helps you to create better relationships, set and accomplish your goals with more ease, and to enjoy life to its fullest!

Our Special Massage Offer for first time clients in November is $10.00 off your first session.

While our goal is to help you feel pain relief and get you feeling well as soon as possible,  it is important to realize that while sometimes one session will be all you need, we encourage patience and giving yourself the gift of time for 3-6 sessions to discover the integrative massage benefits of bodywork.  We offer bundle packages for those who are committed to the path of health and wellbeing.  With an upfront paid 10 Session CST package or 10 Sessions of Structural Integration, ask for your $50.00 discount.


Looking for a fresh air experience?


During the Spring, Summer, and Fall, weather permitting, feel free to ask for work outside on the farm.  Most of the time the horses are munching leisurely on the grass.  At other times, they feel spunky, usually with the change of weather, and put on a show. We can set the table up outside and set the stage for some horse energy to add to your Craniosacral Session. You may also hear the roosters crowing or the chickens clucking. Perhaps Mike the cat meowing or the dogs barking. All part of the farm experience for you when receiving nature during your craniosacral therapy session.
