What People Are Saying About Linda’s Work

Skype and Phone Sessions


Balance. Harmony. Inner peace. A renewed sense of ease.

These are the qualities Linda Lazar Allen strives to help her clients attain as a somatic therapist at the Center for Living Health. Her sessions follow a holistic and anthroposophic approach of bringing balance to and treating the whole human being, not just the symptoms of injury or illness.  As a whole body therapy, Craniosacral Therapy is a safe, gentle touch modality proven to reduce pain and help down regulate the nervous system to release stress and toxics that lead to imbalance.

Few structures have as much influence over the body’s ability to function properly as the brain and spinal cord that make up the central nervous system.  Linda’s craniosacral therapy sessions are unique as she brings advanced training in the brain and nervous system with Bruno Chikly, MD combined with certification in emotional balancing to her practice, and is known for her incredible results working with sensory integration issues, brain injuries and concussions, chronic pain and emotional healing.

“When working at it’s most harmonious level, the body is capable of healing itself”

Various studies show that up to 90% of physician visits are due to stress related illnesses, which shows the importance balancing the mind body connection, countering the chronic, harmful effects of stress.

Every day your body endures stresses and strains that it must work to compensate for.  These distortions can then cause tension around the brain and spinal cord, resulting in restrictions.

Working on the body from the inside out
Linda is skilled in perceiving the subtle rhythms and intrinsic movements of the body to find and release tension and congestion that can cause neurological stress, tension and pain.  Her work focuses on the inner connections in your body: fluids, tissues, membranes, nervous system, energy. Her advanced Brain and Nervous System training is very unique among treatment modalities because as the body has a chance to rebalance, it can bring a tremendous therapeutic effect to the brain, spinal cord, and neurological, immune, digestive and muscular systems. She believes in empowering her clients to take charge of their bodies and understand their innate self-healing capabilities by helping them uncover the mental, emotional, and physical blocks that are keeping them from their  true potential.

Sessions can help ease the challenges brought on by a person’s physical, emotional, and spiritual constitution, assisting us to achieve a better balance and integration of all the forces operating within the body. The results can be life changing.

Pediatrics: Treating Newborns to Teenagers

A child’s world today is busy and scheduled, not leaving much down time.  Stresses of school and activities can tend to have a child live in a heightened state of arousal (chronic ‘fight or flight”), which can cause the body to excrete excessive Cortisol and disrupt their sleep patterns. The lack of sleep adds to their inability to calm, focus and be present, and can cause a vicious cycle. This overwhelm on the body can lead to high levels of anxiety, preventing them from functioning at a level they find acceptable.

Linda’s soft touch gently down regulates the nervous system, calms the body and restores balance.

Parents of Linda’s patients often notice that their children are more relaxed, can focus better in school, and have an easier time with transitions. Many are astounded to see their hyperactive or tense child relax or even fall asleep during the session.

Children tend to feel calmer, can focus easier, and are better able to deal with the stressful demands of school. Restoring equilibrium in the body also helps make children less accident-prone or clumsy, because they are not “off-balance” anymore.


Children and Adolescents
Linda is known for her special connection with the children she works with. Gentle and non-invasive, craniosacral therapy is effective in ways children can intuitively recognize.

She believes in the importance of developing trust, and empowering children to become cooperative participants in their healing process by teaching them tools to calm themselves, relieve pain and feel safe. Linda also incorporates elements of sensory integration, guided imagery, and imaginative play, and storytelling to help calm and focus children during sessions.

An important part of her work is helping  children  with sensory processing disorders feel organized and calm in their bodies. She also works with many children to help  ease transitions through developmental stages in life (kindergarten to 1st grade, 9 and 12 year change, adolescence, etc.). Her work helps support and nourish children through these critical stages.

Linda also works with teens for all sorts of emotional, behavioral and physical problems. Many teens, and even younger children, in today’s society are overloaded with school, extra curricular activities and overall busy lifestyles. This can create undue stress on their systems, lowering their immune function, increasing anxiety and affecting school performance. The therapies Linda offers can help compensate for some of these problems. She has many teens that she see’s several times a year for “tuneups” to helps ease the stress and demands school can bring to their systems, allowing them to tackle their workloads without being overwhelmed.
