Craniosacral Therapist Joins Natural Smiles Dental Care

Jackie Lowe

Jackie Lowe

Natural Smiles Dental Care is excited to welcome Jackie Lowe, craniosacral therapist and certified lactation educator counselor. Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a light touch treatment technique focused on releasing restrictions within the craniosacral system. This system consists of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround, protect and nourish the brain and spinal cord as well as the attached bones. These areas extend from the bones in the skull, face, and mouth all the way down to the tailbone area. An imbalance or restriction within this system can cause sensory, motor and/or neurological dysfunctions. 

Anyone can benefit from the therapeutic balancing of craniosacral therapy, including adults suffering from headaches, TMJ pain or chronic facial pain, as well as children who are in orthodontics. Oftentimes the primary causes of crowded teeth and malocclusion can relate to improper or inadequate cranial movement. Therefore, treating children who are currently in orthodontic treatment or who have had a history of braces can help their bodies more readily accept the changes being made to their mouths and teeth.

As a Lactation Educator Counselor, Lowe is also able to help nursing mothers who are having difficulties with feeding their babies. The birth process itself can sometimes cause infant cranial restrictions which directly affect the proper motions of the tongue, lips and throat. Lowe is able to screen the babies for possible tongue and lip ties which can physically inhibit their ability to latch. Ultimately, she aims for the successful physical, spiritual and emotional bond to occur between mother and baby. She explains, "As a mother, wife and lover of all things holistic and healing, my mission is to provide nourishing support and healing to families so that they may be functioning at their highest levels."

Natural Smiles Dental Care is an integrative and family dental office that specializes in holistic dental care for the whole family. Owner, Dr. Madelyn Pearson and her associate, Dr. Agnes Schindler are passionate about holistic and biological dentistry which looks at the entire health of the patient and not just the mouth.

Location: 4700 Lexington Ave. N, Ste. D, Shoreview. For more information and to make an appointment, call 651-483-9800 or visit

The Power of Facing Your Fears

Eleven years ago I read magazines and watched TV shows that undermined the divine light in myself and other souls. I watched movies that contained violent scenes. I read scary books. I read magazines filled with gossip. I never felt good after reading about or watching negative programs of any kind. But I did it because that's all I knew. I didn't take the time to think about the bigger picture. I didn't take the time to ask my heart the question, "What if I just disconnect, disentangle, or detach from all these things that feel icky to me? Would I then feel better?"
