About Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral Therapy developed from the work of American Osteopath Dr. William Sutherland in the early 1900s.

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a non-mechanical, non-manipulative treatment.

The work can address physical aches and pains, acute and chronic illness, emotional and psychological disturbances or simply help develop wellbeing, health and vitality. When, for example, the body has had to cope with shock, long-term stress or illness, the natural state that promotes healing can become compromised. It is precisely this natural tendency which this holistic therapy helps restore; not only physically but emotionally and spiritually.

Craniosacral Therapy is non-invasive and subtle, making it suitable for babies, children, and the elderly as well as adults. It is also suitable for people in fragile or acutely painful conditions.

After working in dance for nearly 20 years, I qualified as a Biodynamic Craniosacral Practitioner from CTET under the tuition of Michael Kern, Steve Haines, Katherine Ukleja and others. My treatment approach is informed by my career in dance and my own experience of receiving a wide range of treatments throughout that time. I am continuing to work as a dancer and teacher alongside working as a therapist. I find that each of those practices inform one another and enrich, as well as deepen, my curiosity about the body.
