My Solution


If you’re in pain you need more than just symptom relief.  You need a gentle solution that helps you release long held patterns of pain at source. This is where my treatment approach, incorporating craniosacral therapy, can help. Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle, profound treatment which uses very gentle touch to encourage the release of stresses throughout the body, tapping into your body’s innate ability to balance, restore and heal itself. It is often found to be helpful where other more conventional forms of manual therapy haven’t helped. It just may be the answer you are looking for.

My Story

Primarily in an attempt to resolve my own frustrating hip pain, I took a course in Craniosacral Therapy, which changed my perception of how to treat pain.

My Philosophy


My traditional medical model of how to treat pain was turned upside down when I took a course in Craniosacral Therapy. This course challenged and changed my view of how to treat pain and led to my transition from conventional to alternative in my treatment approach. Central to this approach is seeking out and treating the underlying cause of the symptoms.

Frequently Asked Questions


What is Craniosacral Therapy?
Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle, profound treatment which uses very gentle touch to encourage the release of stresses throughout the body, supporting your body’s innate ability to balance, restore and heal itself.
How can Craniosacral Therapy help me?
Craniosacral therapy can be helpful in a large variety of conditions and can be used for people of all ages due to its gentle nature and positive effects on all of the systems of the body. Conditions successfully treated using craniosacral therapy include:

What is a treatment session like?
A typical CranioSacral Therapy session lasts from 45 minutes to an hour, and takes place in a relaxed, private setting. You remain fully clothed throughout the treatment. What you experience during a treatment session is highly individual. You may experience deep relaxation, insights, releases, and a sense of peace. Some people even fall asleep. At the end of your session, I will answer any questions you may have about what you experienced or what to expect after the treatment.
How will I feel after a treatment?
Just as each individual experiences craniosacral therapy sessions differently, the results can be diverse as well. You may leave in such a relaxed state that you feel like sleeping for hours, or you may leave full of boundless energy. You may feel a decrease in pain or an increase in function immediately after the session, or the effects may develop gradually over the next few days. Craniosacral therapy helps the body resume its natural healing processes and hence it is common for your improvements to continue weeks after the session.
How many treatment sessions will I need?
Each individual response to craniosacral therapy is unique and therefore the number of sessions needed to resolve any particular condition varies widely. Your response is uniquely your own and can’t be compared to anyone else’s – even those cases that may appear to be similar to your own.
