About Laura CST, CLEC, HCHI, HCHD
Laura Hanstad is a Craniosacral Therapist, birth doula, childbirth educator, lactation counselor, Reiki Master and mother of five serving the Twin Cities metro area. She trained in craniosacral therapy and myofascial unwinding through Dr. Carol Philips' Dynamic Body Balancing, a rigorous 100-hour training program.
Laura works with adults, infants and children in her in-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 her home yet and needs assistance for herself or her infant.
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 Reiki Master and can add that into her work.
Laura has worked with patients with symptoms/concerns ranging from breastfeeding problems including pre and post-revision for tongue ties and lip ties, to headaches and migraines, pain, constipation, tremors, autism, fetal positioning, speech, torticollis and hip dysplasia, mood and temperament, and so much more!

Distance Reiki Sessions
I am offering my Reiki services with some new times and cost considerations due to COVID-19.
Reiki allows practitioners to work safely and effectively. Interestingly enough, as I have developed more skill and depth in Reiki, I have been able to add some craniosacral therapy techniques into my remote work.
30 minutes $44
20 minutes $32
10 minutes $18
Another new offering I have added is to be included in a daily Reiki session for overall wellness. This is a group session where I will be sending Reiki to anyone who signs up to receive daily Reiki.
1 week membership $70
1 month membership $200
Join for 3 months and get the 4th month free!

CST in-person sessions have new restrictions due to COVID-19. Some CST can be done via Reiki distance sessions above.
In-home visits: I, as the practitioner, will wear a mask and wash my hands well after note-taking before I work on patients and will only work if I and my family are healthy. Physical distancing will be practiced as much as possible with any non-patients during visits.
Office visits: The table and other commonly touched surfaces will be cleaned with Thieves household cleaner between each session. There is an air purifier in the room. I, as the practitioner, will wear a mask and wash my hands well after note-taking before I work on patients and will only work if I and my family are healthy. Since I have family members who are high-risk I ask that everyone entering my home office wear a mask. Please reschedule your appointment if you or a direct family member are not feeling well. Physical distancing will be practiced as much as possible with any non-patients during visits.
