Testimonials

"Alani has a wealth of experience in CST which communicates through her teaching style. She is able to portray intricate concepts with ease and simplicity that a new student yarns for, and do so without removing the element of curiosity that is crucial in novel learning.

I've recommended her course to anyone with a passion for understanding the workings of the body.

Alani is a gifted healer. She has profoundly altered the way I am in the world.

I came to Alani with a disk herniation and chronic pain which was preventing me from driving, working , and for some periods getting out of bed. I also had mental fogginess, memory loss, and a feeling of floatiness.

In our first session, the moment Alani put her hands on my feet I had a wave of knowing that this was what my body needed. I had been to a myriad of other therapists with stunted progress, but Alani was addressing the root cause of the issue within minutes of me laying down. In that session she intuitively moved to the place in my neck with trauma from an old injury, and released them, It was a tremendous relief .

Since then she has steadily restored the flow of energy in my legs, pelvis, and up my spine to my head. My body feels completely different, its self healing ability has kicked back in thanks to her gentle adjustments.

After 5 years of pain cycles, I am finally healing. I can relax now because my body is in touch with with its innate wisdom. 

I am calmer, and my mental fog is clearing . The process has been like a a soothing balmier my self-esteem. I feel stronger, more trusting and back in connection with what I can contribute to the world."

"Alani works with such receptivity and confidence that I have felt entirely trusting. Her sessions are a visceral experience- nothing is unclear, fluffy, or forced. So much vitality has come from the subtle movements in her hands. I feel truly held, and very lucky to have found her"

The teaching process allowed me to progress noticeable; at first the notion of craniosacral and all the subtle feeling abilities required seemed like an impossible skill to grasp, yet by the end of the first level there was a sense of deepening into this beautiful, deep healing space. Everything started to come together, the learning about anatomy, and all the unique cranio terms,like feeling tides, fluids, tissue and bone all came alive in my own hands and body.
