Read one of our success stories

I had a skateboarding accident which impacted my sacrum, back and head. This resulted in chronic headaches, neck pain, back pain, ear-ache and tooth-ache. Almost immediately and within the next 2 hours following my first Craniosacral Therapy session the effects were truly profound – my chronic headaches had dispersed and I felt a calm throughout my spine and back. I was able to sleep easy that night and no longer needed painkillers. After the second treatment I experienced absolute release from the stress and trauma created from the accident and injury. Just 4 weeks after the injury I am now running, skateboarding and rock climbing again.  I am incredibly grateful and happy with the outcome. DL, St Lukes

How Craniosacral helped my Back Pain

I have personal experience with back pain & headaches.  It’s how I first discovered Craniosacral Therapy. I had lower back pain that would get worse every time I went windsurfing. I was seeing a chiropractor at the time, but it only gave short term relief and I needed to have continual  treatments. I ended up trying many different therapies while looking for relief including: Chiropractic, Osteopathy, Cranial-osteopathy & Physiotherapy. Years later, when I couldn’t get a booking with an osteopath,  I stumbled on Craniosacral Therapy.  In the session I noticed a core stretching sensation that I had never experience before.  I noticed steady relief to my back pain in each session & for the first time I felt like I was getting somewhere. My pelvis was feeling much stronger and didn’t feel like it was out of place anymore. I also started to notice improvements to my headaches! I was inspired to learn more & soon moved from Engineering… to be a Craniosacral Therapist.
