Pat Donohue, NC LMBT # 554 is a Registered Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist and a Nationally Certified Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork Therapist  licensed in the state of North Carolina. She has maintained a private practice for the past 20 years and has been teaching courses in Craniosacral Therapy for the last 10 years.  Her method of teaching blends the presentation of the specific anatomy of the area being studied with the experiential table work of that same anatomical structure.  Pat has found her niche as both a mentor to Craniosacral Therapists and as a teacher for licensed bodywork therapists who want to incorporate the skills of Craniosacral Therapy into their practices.  Her warmth and humor emanate from the stillness and compassion forged from her own life experience. www.patriciadonohue.com
