My first introduction to CranioSacral Therapy was witnessing firsthand the positive effect the treatment was having on my daughter who has sensory processing issues. I then personally experienced its profound benefits when a painful longstanding injury I was suffering from improved dramatically after only a couple of sessions.
I was immediately hooked by this gentle yet powerful treatment. What was it and how did it work? I began my training in 2011 with the renowned Upledger Institute for CranioSacral Therapy. It was an incredible experience and one that has helped me on my own personal journey of integrating mind, body and spirit.
I am a fully qualified Upledger CranioSacral Therapist (CST-MCSS) practicing in Ballinger, Buckinghamshire in the heart of the Chilterns.
I started my journey into health and well-being over eighteen years ago, starting out as a personal fitness trainer and then going on to train in holistic massage in 2002. I continued my training to specialise in other complementary therapies, including hot stone massage, remedial and sports massage, reflexology, specialist pregnancy massage and manual lymphatic drainage. I explored spirituality, healing and energy work and became a Reiki Master. I went on to work with a respected osteopath for five years before setting up Silvertree Therapies in 2011 where I offer a range of affordable therapies from my dedicated garden studio. If you are interested in any alternative treatments that Silvertree Therapies offers, please visit www.silvertreetherapies.co.uk.
I have since undertaken additional training courses to expand my core knowledge in CranioSacral Therapy to include paediatrics, pregnancy, conception and birth, chronic depletion, gut health, therapeutic imagery and dialogue and sensory integration.
I feel as though the gentle Craniosacral Therapy approach has brought together and deepened my skills and experience and I am constantly amazed yet never surprised at the body’s ability to self-correct and rejuvenate.
