Craniosacral therapy is a subtle way of working not only with the cranium (head), and sacrum (base of the spine), but with any area of the body holding physical or emotional stress. The practitioner uses their hands to locate and gently help to release tensions. The effects of physical, mental, or emotional trauma can remain in the body indefinitely. Craniosacral therapy gives feedback to the body about the tensions it holds. This allows the body to use its own healing potential to reach a more balanced state. Craniosacral therapy addresses the fluid systems of the body. For a full explanation please go to www.craniosacral.co.uk. It can also be used to ‘unwind’ the fascia and connective tissue. This can be particularly helpful for joint injuries and strains.

I am particularly interested in working with babies, children, and pregnancy, and I welcome a preliminary chat on these or any other query before deciding on treatment for yourself, friend or family.
Having worked in this field for thirty years, I offer a combined treatment approach. All the treatments I practice are gentle, and each session is tailored to the needs of you, the patient. I learned when I was training that our bodies have an innate wisdom, and I am committed to working with bodywork techniques that reflect this philosophy. Many of my patients are sensitive souls.
Craniosacral therapy is a hands-on technique, which can be said to work on the connective tissue of the body to help release long-term tensions. It is particular know for its effectiveness with babies. craniosacral.co.uk
Spinal Touch is also available – another very gently form of body alignment. ishtaspinaltouch.com
So many people have been told that there is no help available for their back, pain, neck pain etc, but this is rarely the case. We work with the whole skeleton and nervous system, and a very wide range of even chronic dis-ease can be gently and safely treated.
A free spine check can help find the source of your discomfort. Most people find relief after their first treatment. A short course of treatment will help to consolidate changes, and we suggest an annual MOT to maintain balance and health.
I have been in practice since 1987. I used to teach McTimoney chiropractic technique at our college in Abingdon. I now live in Somerset, practicing in Frome and Bath.
