Thank you for visiting Northwest Craniosacral.

My name is Barbu Panaitescu. My passion and life’s work is to support people in recovering the health and sovereignty of their bodies, and to become more empowered in their life and relationships. I run a thriving practice in Hood River, OR, utilizingBiodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, Embodiment Coaching, mindful movement, meditation practice and lifestyle optimization to help the people I work with transform their lives in a lasting way.


Think of the last time that it felt wonderful to just be yourself, pain-free and relaxed. Were you with someone you love? Were you in nature? Were you in a group where you felt known and cherished? Or has it been so long that it’s hard to remember?

Working together can return you to a relaxed, present and confident state of being.

Are you ready to regain your health, and to rediscover a sense of choice and empowerment in your life?

Working Together Can Heal:

  • Anxiety and insomnia, a sense of restlessness and/or ADHD
  • Depression, exhaustion, lack of purpose and meaning
  • Chronic pain in the lower back, neck, joints, feet, gut and fascia
  • Whiplash, neck and head injuries and concussion-related issues
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome and digestive issues
  • Acute injuries, sports or work-related, from over-use, misuse or accidents
  • Inflammation and auto-immune concerns
  • Healing from surgery, and readying the body to undergo surgery
  • TMJ issues, headaches and migraines
  • Emotional trauma, sexual abuse, PTSD and issues from a high ACES score
  • Feelings of loneliness, isolation, being misunderstood or different

I will be practicing in Portland regularly in the near future and am also able to visit you in your home if circumstances warrant it.
