"As the former Commanding Officer of Naval Hospital Lemoore California, I had distinct pleasure to welcome CranioSacral Therapist Carol McLellan into our facility. I was able to observe first-hand the positive impact that CranioSacral Therapy (CST) had on the health care of our patients and made me a true professional supporter of this therapy. In fact, I am now such a strong proponent of CST that I will go on record to say that it is essential for CST to be integrated into mainstream hospital practice.

Carol Mclellan initially introduced CST in our hospital to our expecting parents in the prenatal setting and on the labor and delivery unit. Our patients who had CST during their labor loved their birth experience. The benefits to mother and infants are numerous."
