Monica Salazar Hamer
Monica, a licensed therapist, practices CranioSacral Therapy (CST) in Dallas, having completed over 10 years of extensive training through The Upledger Institute in Florida. She administers low impact treatments affecting high impact results, addressing multiple physical issues through CST integrated with other gentle and effective energy therapies. She is also a Licensed Massage Therapist in the State of Texas, and a certified Infant Massage Instructor.
As an experienced Birth Doula trained through Doulas of North America (DONA), Monica has worked as a birth assistant for local midwives. She also earned advanced certification training in medical massage for pregnancy, labor and post-partum by completing coursework for Bodywork for the Childbearing Year.
Monica’s work integrates various therapies to help everyone from infants and children to adults. One thing that sets her apart from other therapists is her emphasis on SomatoEmotional Release (SER), a therapeutic process that incorporates and expands on the principles of CST to help rid the mind and body of the residual effects of trauma.
Monica is passionate about helping others reach their highest potential. In addition to practicing CST, she’s a marathon running coach and teaches classes to help others create a vision for their lives. A native Texan who lives in Dallas with her husband and three teenage kids, Monica is known by her friends, family and clients for her infectious spirit and joyful personality.
