How 'The Move' Happened...
Posted on 14th October 2014

Never ceases to amaze me that when you are really ready for things they somehow just show up.

We had been looking for alternative business accommodation as we had been bursting at the seams in the home office for quite a while now and getting closer and closer to a possible 'pop'. Yet our requirements were a little unusual as, on top of office space, what we really needed is a space to teach from into which we can fit a good number of tables, that is light and sunny, has a good feel (you know, that really important thing that is so hard to explain to your average estate agent!) and that is accessible to planes, trains and automobiles…

Then one day...

GRCCT has a new website
Posted on 26th August 2014


Heartfelt Greetings to all in the Upledger family!

Just to let everybody know that further to the visit of Barry Tanner to our AGM in May 2014, GRCCT now has a new interactive website which went live on August 2nd 2014, with a more direct line to key personnel.

It makes finding or checking a therapist more user-friendly and if you put in your post code when prompted, a list of the five Upledger therapists closest to your home will appear. This makes it easier to find a therapist and is a useful advertising tool for qualified practitioners.

There is also a very useful section on staffing and the direct emails of the key personnel who deal with administration and registration. I find Paul Bleak to be particularly helpful in this regard and you can email him direct from the link.

Do have a look and become acquainted with the new site. Any queries about your registration should be answered much more speedily from now on. If you still have difficulties after pursuing the named staff, then please let me know but I hope and trust that this new tool will benefit us all.

All good wishes

My response to the Immune Response Class
Posted on 16th December 2013

What an interesting 4 days... What a wonderful additional set of ways to use this therapeutic approach.

I dont think I was too sure what to expect from this class - I certainly thought I would consolidate my understanding of the immune system and that I would be able to use this more precisely in treatments. What I was amazed by (and I confess a little resistant to at first!) was the idea that you can tune into the craniosacral rhythm of the immune system itself. Also you can tune into different tissues and then into the Immune system within that tissue..... Why is that useful?

Doing the Diplomate by Caro O'Neill (CST-D!!!!)
Posted on 16th December 2013

I applied for my Diplomate Essay Questions over 3 years ago...sound familiar?!  I took one look at the questions and thought “where do I start” and so put them in a box and didn’t look at them again for several months!  Eventually I got them out of the box again and began on question one “What is SER?”  Well we all know what SER is but you try to put it into writing!  So I chose another question!  And so it went on until I was inevitably left with the most challenging questions.
