In my process of trying to feel any type of relief, I still experience pain but it‘s not an 8 all the time. They also offer cranial therapy sessions. That has helped with my PTSD and anxiety and depression.
I came to Kim and CranioSacral therapy through a friend. Prior to my sessions with Kim, I had very little knowledge or preconceived ideas about CST, which is exactly how I wanted to approach it. So this review is based on my two experiences with Kim. From the moment I walked through the door she made me feel at ease. Very gentle and soft, but focused. Before we started she created a space of openness and safety in which I could express, say, feel, ect. anything that came up. What resulted from that environment was a safely guided (but not coerced) journey into some of my deepest wounds and trauma. Within those wounds were anger and rage. Beyond the anger was sadness. I felt I was able to release some of that and let go of what I had been holding on to for so long. My experience with Kim and CST has helped me to understand the notion that within the pain is the medicine. I would highly recommend Kim to anyone looking to heal and grow.
When I started this program I suffered from high levels of pain in the shoulder hip and lower back areas they were usually 8 out of 10 or 7 out of tens and I still had to take care of my children wife family work now since I definitely enjoy massage and I know it works and it's always good to mix different types of practices to help it I've been able to work better move around more get more energy out and manage to do everything with a lot less pain massage working the muscles I've seen work well with me and my wife and others and I think it should be a constant thing not just a short-term physical therapy thing I think it should be slightly separate from physical therapy as in maintenance of the body kind of like how you change the oil and check the oil in your car or double check the air in your tires just a constant preventive maintenance thing you shouldn't have to have serious physical or long-term wear down injuries of the body to have massage I feel it should be part of the regular maintenance for the taking care of a person's body no just like exercise and eating right.

About me

Kim Nedrow, LMP, CST-D, founder and CEO of the Balanced Being, Inc. has been practicing CranioSacral Therapy (CST) and SomatoEmotional Release (SER) exclusively since 2000. Working directly with military and veterans, cancer patients, children, disabilities, traumatic brain injury, and hospice, Kim regularly donates her services at no charge to those in need, who are either underinsured, non-insured, or when insurance does not cover treatments and there is an inability to pay.

Kim founded The Association for Integrated Healing, a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, after spending time with her late mother, Judy Nedrow, who was battling cancer at Madigan Army Medical Center on Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Tacoma, WA. While observing post-traumatic stress (PTS) patients in the hospital, Kim realized that Veteran and Military PTS needs admittedly couldn’t be met by military staff alone and many Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) modalities available in the civilian sector are not covered. According to Nedrow, she founded the Association for Integrated Healing “to be able to treat people that don’t have services available to them, especially military folks.” She began reaching out to the military community and has volunteered at the annual Washington State TBI Conference in Sea-Tac since 2010, where she offers CranioSacral Therapy. The treatments at the conference are met with great enthusiasm and therapists are flooded with clients, many of whom wait an entire year just to get treated.

Kim has trained extensively with the Upledger Institute in Palm Beach Gardens, FL. In addition to participating in Intensive Therapy Programs at the Institute alongside Dr. John E. Upledger D.O., O.M.M., founder of the Upledger Institute, who passed away in 2012, Kim has volunteered her time to treat clients in multiple therapist client-centered programs in Florida, Oregon, Washington, Arizona, New Mexico, Indiana, Bahamas, and Iceland. She has worked with therapy groups using Bio Aquatic Therapy with dolphins in The Bahamas and Equine Therapy with horses in Indiana and New Mexico where the mammals assist in treatment sessions.

Kim is now a certified mentor through the Upledger Institute. Participating in one of our programs may qualify you as a therapist for mentor credits. Please click the link below for more information about the CranioSacral Therapy Mentorship Program.


Working since 2000, Kim is a Diplomate Certified CranioSacral Therapist (CST-D) and Certified Mentor trained by the Upledger Institute. Kim assists in facilitating the client's own healing process to heal and overcome chronic pain, injuries, disease, post-traumatic stress, and other compensation patterns that may be present using the gentle touch of CranioSacral Therapy. She's currently working with military veterans and their families dealing with trauma, Washington States Traumatic Brain Injury Council, University of Washington Education in Rehabilitation, the Washington Traumatic Brain Injury Strategic Partnership Advisory Council, local government agencies on Alzheimer's and dementia, pediatrics, disabilities and comfort care for end of life and caregivers. Using a light, noninvasive touch such as CST allows the client to process and release old patterns of pain and discomfort, whatever they may be, allowing the body to heal.

I am a Veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom and served in the United States Marine Corps from 2000-2004 as a Water Survival Instructor, Jump Master, and parachute rigger. I am 90% disabled and since I got out in 2004, I have been begging my VA medical provider for alternative pain management options other than prescribed medication. My job now in the civilian sector is as a child forensic interviewer where I interview children when there are criminal allegations of abuse. I see the aftermath of opioid addiction every day in the most heinous ways imaginable. I will not take pain management medication. I have been living at a pain level of about 7-8 on a normal day. I have the constant feeling of the right side of my body going numb and having pins and needles and burning sensations, losing feeling in my face, my right leg losing feeling while driving, and my hips giving out when going from a sitting position to a standing position, and intense nerve damage...to name a few. I have been a swimmer and avid athlete my entire life and because of my disabilities have not abIe get off the couch without pain let alone swim. When I first came to Balanced Being in March 2019 and had my first session of cranial sacral work it was the most intense therapy I have ever experienced. After that first therapy session it felt as though I had shed a layer of pain that had been festering for years. I went home and while sitting on the couch watching a movie with my 10-year-old son I got up to answer the phone. When I came back to sit down my son was staring at me and asked if I was ok. I told him I was fine, and he said, “That’s a first…you didn’t collapse.” I have had three cranial sacral sessions alternated with massage therapy sessions and my legs no longer go numb in the car, I have very little pain getting up, and my right side is no longer continually feeling like pins and needles. My daily pain level sits around a 4-5 now after only six sessions of both massage and cranial sacral therapy. I have four left on this referral and am being told that the VA will not renew my referral. I cannot imagine going back to the pain levels I was at before now that I have again experienced life without the dominating feature of pain. I have told every Veteran I know about this type of therapy and the major differences it has made in my life. Every Veteran should be offered this service!
Craniosacral therapy and Massage therapy has immensely improved my quality of life by providing pain management and Relief from PTSD symptoms. Throughout my 20 years of service as a U.S. Army Infantryman with multiple combat deployments, wounded in action, having multiple lasting service connected injuries including, cervical neck sprain, lumbar back injuries, pelvic floor and hernia surgeries, chronic knee pain, irritable bowel syndrome, PTSD and many other injuries. I have been prescribed physical therapy, steroid injections, surgeries, behavioral health therapy and a plethora of pills, oh the pills. Craniosacral therapy for me feels as if my body and mind are working together to smooth out the scars that war and trauma has left on my body, and in my mind. With Craniosacral therapy, pain relief, as well as positive emotional and mental health are possible for some. I say some because it won’t be for everyone. Just as medications and traditional therapies do not work for everyone. We are all different, with a bag full of issues that we need resolved. As for my experiences with Craniosacral therapy and Massage therapy, and what I can see from my fellow brothers and sisters in arms, past and present, they seem to really benefit and look forward to every appointment as well.
I have been your patient for about 3-4 months now and I fell less pain and suffering from a couple different physical medical connected disabilities. I was referred to you by VA doctors in an effort to further address some long term health issues causing significant and sometimes excruciating chronic pain in my back and neck areas.I also experience symptoms from PTSD that seem to cause a lot of stress and tension related pain in my body. Since I have experienced CranioSacral Therapy and Massage Therapy at the hands of your compassionate and caring team; I am truly starting to understand and become more aware my body feels much less pain (went from a 7-8 to a 3-4 on the pain scale so far!) when I feel more like a “Balanced Being” when I’m able to relax distress and allow my body to self-correct and begin to heal. The advanced techniques you and your staff use have allowed me to release some deep-rooted tensions and stress in my whole body. This in turn has relieved an enormous amount of painful inflammation and pressure that affect how much I hurt on a daily basis as I physically move in life. When I feel less tense in my body; I experience the joy of less pain, improved circulation and positive impact on my Central Nervous System as a whole. In short, this makes me feel much better physically, mentally and emotionally! Ms. Nedrow, I can’t thank you and your awesome team of highly skilled professionals (Jennifer R., Penny S., Michaela, Steve) and others enough. The service I have benefited from in the areas of Integrated Therapy Programs and Advanced CranioSacral Therapy has been amazing and helped me greatly to improve my health I wanted to let you all know how grateful and appreciative I am of the work you and your dedicated staffs continue to do that helps me get healthier, and feel better by experiencing less pain. I would also like to acknowledge you and your team’s excellent customer service and say thanks for your continued efforts of support and amazing 5 star business performance.
