ABOUT LAURA DBB/CST, CLEC, HCHI, HCHD
Laura Hanstad (she/her) is a Craniosacral Therapist, birth doula, childbirth educator, lactation counselor, Reiki Master and mother of six serving the Twin Cities metro area. She trained in craniosacral therapy and myofascial unwinding through Dr. Carol Phillips' Dynamic Body Balancing, a rigorous 100-hour training program, plus has completed an additional 60 hours of training with Dr. Phillips as well as learned from other CSTs in the area.
Laura works with adults, infants and children in her home office in Maple Grove and offers in-home treatment throughout the Twin Cities as well. This gives families various pricing and schedule options and comfort levels, such as a new mother who should not leave their home yet and needs assistance for themselves or their infant. Laura also currently has three apprentices working with her who serve all parts of the Twin Cities. Laura's background is in adult education and loves teaching.

Fortunately, Laura was introduced to craniosacral therapy when she was younger and then through seeing the huge impact it could have during birth and with lactation, she decided to begin the training to support individuals in getting to the root cause of issues and find optimal well-being. She is also a Usui Holy Fire III Reiki Master and is learning Reflexology and can add that into her work.
Laura has worked with clients with symptoms/concerns ranging from lactation problems including pre and post-release for tongue ties and lip ties, to headaches and migraines, pain, constipation, tremors, autism, cerebral palsy, fetal positioning (such as creating space for breech and transverse babies to turn head down), speech, torticollis and hip dysplasia, mood and temperament, and so much more!
