The Importance
of Fascia

Fascia is like a supportive net in our bodies...


wrapping around muscles, organs, and more to protect them from harm. It forms a complex system called the craniosacral fascial system, which starts at the core near the brain and spine and extends throughout the body.


This system needs to stay healthy for cerebrospinal fluid to flow freely.

Throughout life we face traumas...


like birth complications, accidents, and emotional stress that can strain this system, leading to various health issues.


Intuitive Craniosacral Fascial Therapy techniques aim to release this built-up tension gently, promoting better movement and brain function. 

When the fascial system is relaxed, cerebrospinal fluid can flow better properly, supporting overall health.

Meet John

John, a trained Craniosacral Fascial Therapy (CFT) practitioner in Midcoast Maine, transitioned from over a decade in critical care nursing to align with his passion and values. CFT has profoundly changed his life, allowing him to share intuitive healing with others.

A seasoned critical care nurse with over 12 years of experience in diverse New England healthcare environments, he was called to a holistic lifestyle in 2012 following numerous disappointments with conventional western medicine.

Despite facing challenges within the nursing field, he embraced self-improvement by incorporating holistic therapies into his daily routine. His journey intensified after the birth of his first son, prompting a relocation to Maine where he now resides on a homestead with his family.

In 2021, while seeking treatment for his youngest son, John discovered Craniosacral Fascial Therapy (CFT) and recognized a significant need for practitioners in Maine. This realization spurred him to pursue starting Midcoast Fascial Therapy, marking a pivotal shift away from critical care medicine.


Through CFT, John has unearthed his genuine passion for facilitating holistic healing, tapping into the body's innate ability to heal through intuitive fascial release and the craniosacral system.
