Lisa Snyder Bodywork will reopen June 1st. In response to COVID safety requirements, new policy changes are in effect. My goal is to continue to provide excellent service in a safe environment. If you have any questions regarding the following, please feel free to email me at LisaSnyderBodywork@gmail.com. Thank you!
NEW CLIENT FORM:
Please print, complete and bring the new client intake form to your appointment. This may be found on the website under Appointments>New Client Forms. A link is here: FORMS. If you are unable to complete this at home, please bring your own pen with you to your appointment.
CHILDREN/ADDITIONAL PEOPLE: Due to COVID precautions, the waiting room is only available for the client with either respective parent as applicable. Please have additional family members either remain in their car or return at the conclusion of your session until further notice. Your understanding is appreciated.
If you test positive for COVID, suspect you have been exposed to COVID or have symptoms which may be related to COVID, contact Lisa Snyder immediately to cancel the appointment. Lisa will also continue to monitor her health to ensure client safety.
The State of MN is requiring each client and Lisa Snyder wear a mask during the session. Clients may bring their own mask otherwise a disposable mask is available for purchase at the office for $1.
SANITARY PRACTICES: Lisa will continue to practice proper health and sanitary protocols to include changing sheets with each client and washing hands before and after every session. In addition, with each client Lisa will wipe down the door knobs to her office, wipe down the chair where the client sits and any tables/surfaces as needed. Gloves will be used when requested or appropriate. Clients will be required to wash their hands prior to the session.
NO BLANKETS/PILLOWS: Lisa will discontinue the use of a blanket during the session. Lisa recommends bringing extra warm clothing to the session if you tend to run cool. A plastic mattress protector is used over the padding on the table and disinfected between client sessions.
Hang in there, Minnesota! Now, more than ever, good self care will help during this weird, and challenging time many are facing. Fresh air, sunshine, meditation, and healthy foods will do much to boost your immune system. Please check out my favorite, free meditations on my Lisa's Favorite Links page.
My office will reopen as soon as the Governor of MN lifts the executive order for salons and barbershops. I fully expect PPE requirements will be in place and I will adhere to all the policies. I'm still providing remote energy healing work and offering a COVID 25% off special. In the meantime, I hope this little frog from last year's garden puts a smile on your face as it does mine.
With much love and gratitude to you!
I understand how it feels when your child is in discomfort or pain and you don't know how to help. I'm a mom, too. When my daughter was a newborn, she projectile vomited every time we nursed. The doctor reassured me she would eventually outgrow it but it didn't seem normal to me. I didn't know about CranioSacral therapy at that time but knowing what I now know, I believe this therapy would have helped.
My job is to listen to your child and help reduce discomfort and pain. With a highly developed sense of intuition, I am guided to find stress and tension within your child's body and gently release those patterns. Often times a newborn or very young baby needs to nurse during part of their session. This helps them feel safe and nurtured while we work together. The session is truly about listening to what their needs are and to help their little bodies get out of pain and discomfort.
Parents of young children are encouraged to hold their child's hand, read books, bring small toys to play with their child during a session. Some parents allow their child to have some screen time during their session if they are concerned a 30 minute session is a long time to keep them engaged. If a child needs to sit up during the session, I adjust what I'm doing to their needs.

More Children Session Reviews Below: A wide range of reviews or website reviews are also available on the "Reviews" tab of this website.
The images above (Dr. Joe Dispenza's facebook page) show how the different waves of energy run through the major energy centers of the body. The illustration on the right shows how stuck energy in the first three centers may impact various emotions and moods. Meditation is an excellent way to help move stuck energy. For more information, please visit my Lisa's Favorite Links page for meditation sources.
CranioSacral Therapy uses a very gentle touch to help relieve stress and tension patterns in the body, especially those affecting the brain and spinal cord. As the picture above illustrates, there are many bones surrounding the brain. Car accidents, falls, head bumps, sports and everyday life affects how our body holds those patterns. The body does a great job compensating for those incidents and over time they accumulate which may result in pain.
Often, clients are surprised to learn that an accident several years prior to their session may be contributing in some way to the pain they are having today. Clients often report how relaxed they are during the session and how they feel one part of the body is affected even though I'm working somewhere else. The body is one continuous unit and a CranioSacral Therapy session treats the body as a whole.

Unplug, unwind and try to be in nature. It's amazing how this has a very healing effect on the body, mind, and spirit. Even the simple act of walking barefoot on grass or sand or being by water helps to soothe the body. It also is a great way to connect with your intuition or "gut" feelings.
Wishing everyone a very Happy 4th of July week!
How Big of a Problem is Stress and Anxiety?
You've most likely heard, read or experienced firsthand how stress and anxiety impacts the body. A quick Google search for "stress and anxiety 2018" results in 1,450,000 news reports. Clearly this is an issue that has a huge effect on all ages. A Mayo Clinic article outlines how stress alone has the effects listed below. A few effects of anxiety are also listed below from another Mayo Clinic article.
Why CranioSacral Therapy?
One of the best parts of my job as a bodyworker is seeing the before and after effects of a CranioSacral Therapy session on a clients face. It's amazing how such a gentle technique normalizes the central nervous system. A stressed out client may feel more relaxed so they can approach their job, family and life with more ease. A very lethargic client may feel more energized and better equipped to handle the everyday tasks required of them. (Visit the Upledger FAQ website page to learn more.) One of these days, I may have to start taking before and after photos (with my clients permission) and share them on my website. It's that noticeable!

Common effects of stress on your body
In February, I completed more advanced training that helps relieve tension patterns around the eyes, face and more. Below is from ScienceDaily.com website. The link below provides more information regarding the study.
"Simply moving the eyes triggers the eardrums to move too, even in the absence of sound, says a new study by neuroscientists. The findings, which were replicated in both humans and rhesus monkeys, provide new insight into how the brain coordinates what we see and what we hear. It may also lead to new understanding of hearing disorders, such as difficulty following a conversation in a crowded room.
The researchers found that keeping the head still but shifting the eyes to one side or the other sparks vibrations in the eardrums, even in the absence of any sounds." (credit Science Daily.com)
Volleyball Setter's Sprained Ankle
This past spring, an athlete - who also happens to be my daughter - sprained her ankle after a classmate accidentally stepped on it in gym class. The ankle swelled up immediately and she had a big JO volleyball tournament the following weekend. In addition to standard protocol of ice, compression and elevation, it was a great opportunity to see if CranioSacral Therapy - combined with Fascia/Tissue Release - would help the healing process. And most importantly to my daughter, get back on the court in time for the tournament.
What is CranioSacral Therapy?
CranioSacral Therapy, uses a very gentle, light touch approach. Pain and problems are relieved at the source. The body's natural self-healing mechanism is activated while soothing the central nervous system.
While gently applying the techniques above and below her injury combined with standard injury protocol, she could feel the muscles and surrounding tissues begin to relax almost immediately. She was able to get back on the court in time for the tournament and insists it's the fastest she's ever recovered from a sprained ankle.*
Additional Pain Relief Note: My daughter is currently playing college volleyball. In addition to the sprained ankle, this work has helped support her body through normal stresses an athlete goes through with muscles and joints. It also eliminated a migraine that she developed on the court which most likely was due to bumps and dives during the game.
CranioSacral Therapy is also helpful for the following conditions**:
Post concussions symptoms
Muscle and joint pain relief due to stress and injury
Sinus Pressure Relief
Easy, convenient online scheduling is available 24/7.
