I am passionate about Upledger CranioSacral Therapy. I first discovered the benefits of Upledger CranioSacral Therapy whilst having treatment on myself for Meniere’s disease, I was amazed by the dramatic effect it had on me. After attending an introductory weekend in Upledger CranioSacral Therapy I left wanting to learn more and felt inspired to train as a CranioSacral Therapist

I am a fully qualified Upledger CranioSacral Therapist and a member of the Upledger Cranio Sacral Society. I have taken further training in Paediatric CraniSacral Therapy and also help as an assistant for Upledger CranioSacral Therapy training courses. I have worked as a therapist on intensive integrated CranioSacral Therapy treatment programmes, including treatment in water.

I treat a wide range of people, my youngest so far being three days old and the eldest in their 90s.I offer multi-hands intensive programmes designed around your needs.

As well as my training in CranioSacral Therapy I am a fully qualified Holistic Massage Therapist, I have trained in Acupressure and Visceral Manipulation incorporating these into a treatment where appropriate.

I own my own natural health practice, Falmouth Natural Health Practice, where we offer a variety of therapies, and I also work one day a week at Hilsea Natural Health Practice in St Austell.

Because I am quite busy with teaching and other aspects of UIUK I tend to offer irregular but pre-planned treatment sessions. They are usually Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday afternoons with occasional mornings or evenings, organised a month or two in advance. So while I cannot often respond to urgent needs (though look at the website and try my colleague Jo Harris if you need that and are in this area) I am really happy to set up appointments in advance. 

While I mainly use CST I also incorporate visceral manipulation, having done many of the VM courses and a good number with Jean Pierre Barral, the developer of that work, himself. Also, together with Jo and other colleagues, we can offer multiple-hands treatments, which we absolutely love to do.

I began exploring bodywork therapies more than 35 years ago when my focus was on movement and dance.  Since then I have qualified as a CranioSacral Therapist, Alexander Technique Teacher (2013), and Chartered Physiotherapist (1991) specializing in Mental Health and Pain Self Management. 

Human being first, teacher and therapist later… woman, dancer, runner, hoola-hooper, meditator, juggler, labyrinth walker, spiritual, navel-gazer, wife/lover, doting dog owner,auntie, daughter, sister, friend, artist for pleasure, reader, singer, wine drinker, chocolate lover, brownie maker (ex dance and keep fit teacher, jeweller, aromatherapist, bell ringer, motorcyclist, doula etc) in between!

During your CST session, my wish is to create a non-judgemental, calm, nurturing, safe space where you can give yourself “me-time”, be authentically you and have the freedom to explore just what your “inner self” needs.  I may talk with you during the session using Clean Language to facilitate self correction of your body as only it knows how.

I started my working life looking after children, and then, after having had my own, went down a new path and taught Pilates.  
 
After using CranioSacral Therapy to treat long-term back issues (too much gymnastics too young), plus other niggles due to the stresses and strains of modern day life, I realised that I would like to be able to become a therapist myself.  In 2009, I started on that journey.  It was a long road, teaching me about myself as I learnt how to facilitate the healing in others.  I passed my exam in February  2015, a very proud moment for me.
 
I have subsequently undertaken training in using Imagery and Dialogue to promote healing, training to work with horses and expanded my field of knowledge in CST for Paediatrics, taking me full circle and back to my first love, children.  
 
I currently work from home where I am lucky enough to be able to teach Pilates and run my CST clinic side by side

I have been a Holistic facilitator since 1996 and I continue to train and broaden my skills. I initially trained as an Aromatherapist and, in a quest to extend my knowledge of the Holistic Mind/Body connection, I then also trained in Reflexology, Reiki, Indian Head Massage, Upledger CranioSacral Therapy and Ear Candling.   

I have dedicated some of my time to raising money for and working with people with cancer at Cherry Lodge Cancer Care in Barnet and St Margaret’s Hospital in Epping.  In my experience in working with people with a variety of health problems, I have gained great insights into how holistic treatments give a sense of well being and how they can be helpful in coping with the stresses of everyday life as well as dealing with traumatic life events.

I am married with two adult children,  love motorcycling, walking, mountain biking and being with my family.

In 1987, after repetitive back problems and being something of a ‘couch potato’, I managed to train in to some sort of fitness and shape. Training overtook my life and I had to develop a realistic outlook, as a mother and wife with work commitments.

I trained with the YMCA to qualify as a fitness instructor, and later studied full time to become an International Sports Therapist. I have continued my studies in Sports/Remedial Therapy and Fitness, becoming a Member of the Society of Sports Therapists, The Association of Therapeutic Massage, and many others..

In 1999, I joined the team at Northcroft Leisure Centre in Newbury, Berkshire, where I teach Body Pump, hold my clinics and spend leisure time with my family.

During 2001/2002,  I qualified as a teacher in Further education (Cert.Ed.) to lecture part-time at Newbury College. 

In summer 2004,  I completed my studies in Bowen Therapy and Neurostructural Integration Technique (Bowen Neuro Therapy) which I practice with my existing work.

During 2007, I started Myofascial and CranioSacral Training with the Upledger Institute on a continuing education program. I qualified in CranioSacral Therapy in October 2012 and continue to study.

I am very fortunate in having my feet kept firmly on the ground by my family, long-suffering friends, work colleagues, very loyal clients and the Leisure Centre, all without whom none of the above would have been possible. My thirst for finding ways to enable the body to recover from injury and pain continues…

I have been practicing complementary therapy since 1998, qualifying as a Sports Massage Therapist, adding Aromatherapy, Reiki and Seated Acupressure to my tool bag in my quest to find effective treatments.

CST found me in 2004, when I received treatment for long-standing back pain. (I have fallen off a lot of horses….). For the first time since childhood I was completely pain free. I was hooked!!

 I have trained to the Advanced 1 level, including the paediatric modules. This profound treatment, which respects and complements all others, dots the “i’s” and crosses the “t’s” for me.

After many years of working in clinic situations, I now practice from home in Portreath. My client base ranges from newborns to the elderly, athletes to post-surgery patients, treating anything from colic to whiplash and a myriad of conditions in between. 

I am fortunate to have an amazing network of colleagues in Cornwall and so, in a choice of venues across the county, we are able to offer “multi – hands” treatments. This option can be indicated where you feel that you have got “stuck” on your journey towards good health. The extra pairs of hands give additional support to the tissues and emotions of the patient on the couch.

Until I make better friends with technology, for more information or an appointment, you can reach me on my mobile.

I qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist in 1976 from St Mary’s Hospital Paddington. In 2000, I gained the Upledger Techniques certification. I started a private practice in 1990 and since then I have undergone extensive training in Visceral Manipulation and CranioSacral Therapy. In 2006, I started teaching Visceral Manipulation at the introductory level and I also teach the CST Intro Course. 

I enjoy the challenge of locating and releasing tissue tensions deep within the body, these are very often not at the site of the patients’ symptoms but they are usually the root cause of those symptoms.

I am originally from Scotland, but moved to Jersey some 23 years ago and soon fell in love with the island, and couldn't imagine living anywhere else.  I first encountered CranioSacral Therapy (CST) in 2009 and was totally astounded by the results.  I became fascinated with the Anatomy and Physiology of the human body, and the body's power to heal itself.

I have worked with babies through to adults, all with a variety of physical, mental and emotional discords within their bodies. I feel strongly about the importance of seeking out and treating the cause rather than the symptoms. 

I am extremely passionate about CranioSacral Therapy and feel that it is an honour and a privelege to be able to promote health and wellness in people using the knowledge and experience I have gained.

I originally trained as a physiotherapist at the Royal London Hospital. Some 25 years ago, I also began incorporating reflexology into my practice. I was astounded by the results I was getting with people who were suffering from chronic or acute pain. As doctor and therapy colleagues began referring patients, I developed my practice further by following a 2-year healing course with Swami Ambikananda Saraswati, (www.traditionalyoga.org ) incorporating energy work, herbs, crystals , acupressure and yoga. After qualifying as a yoga teacher and healer, I was introduced to CranioSacral Therapy. Since then, I have never failed to be amazed at the power of the individual to heal mentally, physically and spiritually, when a gentle healing space is provided. I continue to work in a very holistic manner, and have never stopped developing my physiotherapy skills , which I use alongside the more subtle techniques of energy medicine. I treat people of all ages, including babies, and welcome your enquiries.

Fiona qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist in 1985 and worked in the NHS for 13 years, specialising in working with adults and children with special needs. During this time, she also studied for and graduated with a BSc(Hons) in Health Studies. She left her NHS job to focus full-time on her practice as a CranioSacral Therapist. Since then, she has undergone a continuous programme of personal and professional development, mainly through the Upledger Institute, for whom she is a certified instructor in the UK. She also runs the Upledger Study Group for therapists in central and northern Scotland.

Fiona is passionate about treating the whole person and finding the origin of an issue in the body, rather than treating symptoms. She places great importance on listening to her patients, which is why she offers a free half- hour consultation prior to treatment, so that both parties can decide on the appropriateness of commencing treatment.

I found this work through experiencing its profound benefits when an injury forced a career change from educational management. Little suspecting that all my life experience, including an MBA, an interest in change leadership, and that of the psychology of adult learners would be invaluable in my Upledger practise and teaching.

My practice in based in central Brighton, where I treat clients of all ages and backgrounds. My understanding of the demands of working with major responsibilities and teams underpins my current enthusiasm for gaining an understanding of the ways the body works. I completed my core Upledger studies in the UK and supplemented them with classes with Dr John Upledger in the USA. Observing the value of CST for those with PTSD took me to work on various Intensive treatment programmes in Ireland and also in New York after 9/11.  I now offer multi-hands treatments at my practice.

I have led an Upledger Study Group in Brighton since 2003, and created ‘Developing Confidence’ workshops to offer support developmental opportunities for therapists. An active member of the Board of the CranioSacral Society for many years, I currently have responsibility for CPD and Study Groups.

I am also a regular visitor to Cyprus where I have a part-time practice.

I have been been enjoying working with various healing modalities for twelve years.  I graduated from McTimoney Chiropractic college in 2001 and then discovered CranioSacral!  I am contantly amazed but never surprised by the way the body is able to heal itself with a gentle bit of assistance. 

I practise CST and classical manipulation from a therapeutic space in a GP practice in London, seeing people of all ages from newborns to those more advanced in age.  Many people seek me out for work and general life stresses, headaches and back pain and find, as one patient put it, they “feel so much better on every level”.  I keep abreast of contemporary science and am interested in how incoherence is expressed in the mind/body system.  I am a mum to two young children, am embarking on multi-hands practise in Sussex and currently exploring how this work can assist children and young adults on the autistic spectrum.

I have been in practice as a complementary practitioner for 27 years. Originally as an Osteopath, and since 1995 in Upledger CranioSacral Therapy.  CST is my main therapy now, but I do integrate osteopathic techniques in my treatments if it is necessary.  A visit to the Clinic here, in Redruth, will involve a full case history and examination along with treatment at the first consultation. I firmly believe that CST makes permanent and sometimes profound change  to patients’ wellbeing and general health. The SER process is an integrative part of Upledger CST – this occurs spontaneously and may help you get deeper into your issues and health problems, and bring about permanent change on many levels.

I qualified as a Registered Nurse in 1982 and Registered Midwife in 1989. I have been employed within the NHS for most of my career and have worked as a Clinical Research Nurse for 26 years. I also have experience working with animals and was employed as a Veterinary Nurse in Edinburgh earlier in my career. Recently, I have left my research post to be a full-time Bodywork Therapist.

My passion for CranioSacral Therapy started in 2007, when my horse was chronically unwell. I became hooked after seeing an Equine Osteopath treat him with CranioSacral Therapy. I have studied with the Upledger Institute UK to Advanced level and am currently training in Equine and Small Animal CranioSacral Therapy with the Upledger Institute International.

I like to treat the whole person, and my area of interest is chronic pain and dysfunction linked to past emotional trauma. I treat people, horses and small animals and cover Central Scotland, Lothians, Fife and Perthshire. I offer home visits for people and animals.

I have a special interest in working with anxiety and depression both in teenagers and adults, behavioural and sleep disturbance in children and with unsettled babies.

I work at home in the small village of Epwell, Oxfordshire. I run a very busy practice working from 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday.

Despite having trained in various other therapies since 2003, I now work as an Upledger CranioSacral Therapist, using Barrel's visceral manipulation techniques when appropriate. I find this combination an extremely effective treatment for most conditions.

I treat lots of children, from crying babies to those who have suffered accidents, illness or have concentration or other behavioural problems.

Adults usually come to see me with back problems, head injuries or post- operative pain. I commonly treat migraine, cancer, ME, MS or any other neurological problems.

I find CranioSacral Therapy particularly effective for helping unexplained pains and conditions.

I am the local CranioSacral Therapy mentor running a study support group for other therapists training under Upledger, where we share new ideas, research and techniques.

Since 2001, through my initial training and subsequent work in Sports Massage and Sports Rehabilitation, I became aware that sometimes there was something else behind the physical issue a person had come to me with. This often meant the problem would resolve only to returned unexpectedly. Consequently I became interested in the Body-Mind relationship, which ultimately led me to train in CranioSacral Therapy, because of its gentle nature and ability to work with your body as a complete being, including the emotional aspect of ourselves.

My training has also taken me to study Visceral Manipulation. Working and listening to the organs; their attachments, surrounding structures and their relationships with the rest of the body, to release any unwanted restrictions that can be impacting on their function and potentially causing pain elsewhere due to the bodies compensations.

I love both approaches for helping patients, as they put you and your body in control of what is right and appropriate to resolve unwanted pain or discomfort. To me, treatments should be a three-way process between myself, you and your body, to find the route to health that right for you.

More details about the treatments I offer and how I work can be found on my website.

I have had forty-three years experience in Dentistry and currently have a specialist orthodontist practice in Southampton at Rookswood Dental and Health. I qualified from Guys Hospital, London in 1971 and have worked throughout the world before I set up this present practice. I commenced training in CranioSacral Therapy with the Upledger Institute in 1994.

I have worked in these two fields together for the past 16 years in my area of interest which is the bite and jaw. I discovered early on that many patients suffered from headaches and neck ache which could be treated by correcting their bite combined with CranioSacral Therapy. I believe that the way the teeth meet together and the relationship of the jaws can have a profound effect on a person’s health and wellbeing.

I have lectured extensively on the connections of the bite with the craniosacral system.

I am a member of the CSS (Cranio Sacral Society) and COSCA ( the professional body for counselling and psychotherapy in Scotland) and hold a degree in Psychology from Edinburgh University.  As well as my work with the Upledger Institute in the UK, I have also studied Healing From The Core in the USA to Presenter Level (Teaching Assistant).

The combination of all these modalities allows me to be an empathic Therapeutic Presence for clients, offering them a safe space to explore their process, a listening ear and a skilled pair of hands to release tension and blockages in the body. I believe in the power of integrating the mind, body and spirit to promote wellbeing.

I graduated as a Chiropractor from the university of Glamorgan back in 2008. Following this, I returned to Scotland and have now established myself at Ayr Chiropractic and Complementary Health Centre in Ayrshire.

I first became aware of Upledger CranioSacral Therapy after seeing the amazing outcomes other CranioSacral Therapists were experiencing with their patients. This prompted me to take my first CST1 class in 2011, and since then I have continued to explore the work of Dr Upledger and develop a CranioSacral Therapy practice myself.

I work with patients of all ages and backgrounds, including babies, children and adults, to help them develop, grow and live healthier lives. I integrate other therapies with this work when required, namely Visceral/Neural Manipulation, Applied Kinesiology, Lymphatic Drainage and Pilates rehabilitation programmes. 

I am deeply passionate about this work and am happy to discuss options with anyone looking to experience the world of CranioSacral Therapy for themselves.

I began my Upledger CranioSacral training in 1997 and have been using this wonderful work ever since. My practice at the time was in Mallorca, Spain, where I built up a busy clinic and voluntary children's clinic.  Since moving back to the UK in 2002, I have continued to develop my skills and practice and now work in Holsworthy in Devon as well as Launceston and Bude in Cornwall.

I regularly run evening workshops and introductory weekends to CranioSacral Therapy for anyone interested in learning more about this extraordinary therapy. I co-run an Upledger Study Group for practitioners in Devon and Cornwall.

I am actively involved in Clinical Research in CranioSacral Therapy and am currently working on developing a single case experimental design model to be used by CST practitioners.

Practice bias: CST-based, focused on how life-shaping biographical, perinatal and transpersonal issues can express as persistent physiological and functional problems. Working with these issues through bodywork can be transformative. I also use cranial techniques within a whole-body framework at a purely physical level. With new clients, I prefer to start with a no-fee initial discussion before either party agrees to proceed with therapy.

Professional biography: qualified in osteopathy 1977, cranial osteopathy 1989, CST diplomate 1997; CST training chiefly in the U.S.A., much with Dr John Upledger. Upledger Institute certified instructor and examiner. Started Upledger Institute UK in 1994; founding chairman of (UK) Cranio Sacral Society. I am not an osteopath.

I qualified from the British School of Osteopathy in 1986 and have since built up a busy broad-based osteopathic practice in Barrow and Ulverston.  Alongside traditional structural osteopathic techniques, I have furthered my interest in functional and cranial techniques at post-graduate level and qualified as a CranioSacral Therapist with the Upledger Institute.  I have studied at Wat Po Traditional Medical School in Thailand and completed several bio-aquatic workshops with the Upledger Institute - an interest I am hoping to peruse in the Furness area.

My background is in nursing, midwifery and health visiting. After having my family, I worked in family planning clinics which was sessional and fitted in with family life. I went on to teaching health and education topics in colleges of further education in South Tyneside and Newcastle upon Tyne. It was my own long-standing back problem which led me to CranioSacral Therapy. It was the only therapy which helped me, so I trained in CST to share this wonderful therapy with other people. I am also trained in Reiki, NLP and hypnotherapy.

My practice is in Gosforth in Newcastle upon Tyne. I enjoy treating people of all ages, including babies and expectant mothers, children and young adults to the elderly, for a wide variety of reasons.

My other job is piano and keyboard teaching in schools and privately at home.

I have three married children, two daughters-in-law, one son-in-law and six grandchildren, who have all benefited from CST.

My passion for CranioSacral Therapy derives from my equine interests from 2004. I have been a British Horse Society Instructor for many years and was introduced to the wonders of CranioSacral Therapy through a poorly horse I owned. The treatment addressed the whole body’s healing and rebalancing and provided the opportunity for a hugely improved body efficiency and as a bonus, gave him back his smile! In 2013 I was extremely privileged to be accepted to commence my human learning through the Upledger Institute. I have progressed to Advanced Level One and find the wonders of CranioSacral Therapy are available for everyone, if we wish for a better life. I work from home at Sheepwash in Devon in a beautiful, relaxed, rural location but will travel to you if required..

I have been a therapist for 20 years and am a founder member of the Cranio Sacral Society. I practise at home and, for the last eight years, have worked as a volunteer at the ‘Fountain Centre’ (a charity integral with the Cancer Centre of the Royal Surrey County Hospital). Two days a month I offer CranioSacral Therapy at the PhysioStudio in Binfield, Berkshire.

My special interest is in the great soul transitions of birth, end of life and the ‘dark night’ which draw many people to seek the gentleness of CST, for themselves or their loved ones.

I am a soul midwife, supporting those who are facing challenges and transitions at the end of their lives, and four times a year I offer a day workshop called ‘Peaceful Pathways to Conscious Living and Dying’ to which anyone is very welcome at any time.

I started my journey with Craniosacral Therapy in 2012 and fell in love with this non-invasive, profound and gentle therapy, so much so, that I qualified in July 2015 and am continuing with advanced learning and development. I truly believe that doing my own "inner work" and from being taught by my inspirational teachers, that I can help my clients to resolve their body's restrictions and even deeper issues arising from their past history and experiences.

Born a true "Kiwi" (New Zealander) my roots are extended around the world, with past experience in the corporate international sports business industry and are now planted in the tranquil alpine village of Chamonix, Mt. Blanc, France. 

I have practiced sports and holistic massage for over 12 years; working with elite athletes and sports persons enhancing their performance. I have a wonderful variety of clients of all ages, from newborn babies to people over 80 years old that are treated with CranioSacral Therapy, reiki and/or massage. 

As well as the core training workshops, I have attended CST for chronic depletion, Peadiatrics 1, Brain Speaks 1, and CST for conception pregnancy and birthing.

Until 2003, I worked in Finance in the City. Typically, I was on the phone for long periods of time and I developed a neck problem. A massage therapist, who was helping me with this, asked me if she could try some CranioSacral Therapy at the end of one of my treatments.

I agreed, not knowing what it was or what to expect. That was it! Profound, quite astonishing, and certainly like nothing I had ever experienced. From that moment on I was hooked and in total wonderment of this gentle, powerful therapy. What was it? How does it work? I needed to know more. I left the City that year and decided to become a CranioSacral Therapist.

I have since undertaken many years of training, both in the UK and in America, including Advanced Work and Paediatrics and even working with clients in the water with Dolphins. I have taken my Upledger Techniques Certification Exams and I am a Qualified member of the Cranio Sacral Society.

I shall always be indebted to that wonderful lady and her hands, and for her introducing me to this extraordinary work. I now practice in Brighton and Hove in East Sussex, and treatments in your own home can also be arranged.

I have been a qualified  physiotherapist since 2000 and I’ve been practising CranioSacral Therapy for over 10 years.  I treat all age groups and conditions, specialising in chronic neck pain, headaches and TMJ disorders. CranioSacral Therapy led me down a path where I discovered that our health is dependent on all aspects of our beings; physical, mental and emotional. Over the last decade, I have become passionate about the impact that stress has on all of these areas and am now committed to sharing this approach to health with people through one to one treatments and workshops.
