Catherine Perman LMBT CMLDT’s practice started from the enthusiasm she experienced being a client with CranioSacral Therapy herself. Working for many decades as a professional opera singer, she recalls feeling ‘something profound taking place’ each and every time she left her treatments. This seemed to give her a cutting edge in such a demanding music profession. These treatments became an indispensable asset to feeling wellness again and again and in staying on top of her game! Inspired by her feeling of wellness and her mentors, her practice is therefore geared towards you becoming your very best YOU! Maybe it’s re-remembering how awesome you used to feel at one time in the past, or your ‘new normal’ – once your mega-stress has been lifted. Her curiosity, fascination and healing hands led her down this path almost twenty years ago and she’s happy to share the possibility of change for you too now! A big fan of Dr. Eric Kaplan herself, she is excited to share her practice with his clients and compliment his awesome services.
