Everyone is UNIQUE. Don’t you want to be TREATED that way?
I have been working in complementary therapies since 1996.
Fully qualified CranioSacral Therapist and Naturopath, as well as many other body therapies and psychospiritual modalities.
Trained in both the UK and the USA.
Through physical touch and verbal communication therapy becomes a whole-body experience.
We all have our own unique experience of ourselves and the world around us. I provide a space where you are heard and supported, enabling you to reconnect with your whole body, your inner resources and natural self-healing mechanisms.
Naturally evolving therapy increases your awareness to the real reason for the way you are feeling. It allows time for your body to process and adjust at a natural pace and for you to discover a path forward, unique to your needs.
Whole body processing; is the connecting of our physical sensations with our mental and emotional patterns. It creates the foundation for deeper transformation and a more integrated healing experience.
Why use craniosacral therapy?
CST is a gentle touch therapy that meets each person at their own level of need and function, making it versatile and safe for use with babies to those in old age.
It is both a whole-body evaluation and treatment that evolves from you and your body.
CST works with the central nervous together with the membranes, bones and fascia that surround it. The central nervous system influences almost every function in the body and not many therapies have as much influence over the central nervous system as Craniosacral Therapy. It, therefore, has the potential to engage with every aspect of your being, physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
Sometimes the pain or restrictions we experience do not originate from where we thought they did. Working in this way can reveal a better picture and provides valuable information so any supportive treatments or practices can be tailored to your unique needs.
How long will it take for me to feel better?
Health and personal growth is an evolving journey and everyone is different. Some people notice immediate changes and others take longer depending on what is going on. These can all be discussed in your sessions.
What to expect from a treatment?
The first session will begin with a verbal consultation and the documentation of your medical history, followed by a complete body evaluation and treatment.
Remaining clothed, you lay down on a comfortable treatment couch. The session begins with a gentle placing of hands, touching various areas on the body to evaluate the craniosacral system.
Delicate and precise manual techniques may then be carried out anywhere from the cranium (your head) to the sacrum (the bottom part of your spine) or other areas on the body relevant to you.
The therapist listens with their whole being and hands and invites the client and their body to guide the process. CST and other supportive therapies such as massage and acupuncture or other techniques and practices evolve from your session to support your natural healing processes.
How will I feel?
What you experience is highly individual and can differ each time you have a session. Some people talk during a session but talking is not necessary. Typically people experience some of the following; feelings of warmth, a softening of the body tissues, pulsing or tingling in different areas of the body or a general sense of deep relaxation.
