Cranio-Sacral therapy will help you to target a variety of problems and issues which give rise to chronic pain
Life expresses itself as motion. All healthy, living tissues subtly pulsate with this "Breath of Life" - a phenomenon that which can be palpated by sensitive hands, and which is initially enhanced during the birth process as baby emerges into the outside world and the bones of the skull (compressed in the birth canal) "spring open".
During the course of our lives our bodies become shaped and conditioned by stress or traumas. If these are overwhelming, they become locked in the body as sites of inertia – like "old war wounds" - which tend to manifest during times of stress.
"Sites of inertia" effect the natural rhythmical movements of the "Breath of Life" and hinder the ability of our natural tendency for health and homeostasis at a cellular level.
Common causes of inertia are injury, surgery, physical/emotional stress, birth trauma and toxicity. Due to an accumulation of these stresses, tissues can become imprinted with the memory of unresolved experiences and so act like video tape which keeps replaying – particularly during times of excessive stress.
CST is biodynamic and holistic, respecting the inter-connectedness of mind, body and spirit. It is an effective form of treatment for a wide range of musculo-skeletal, visceral, endocrine, nervous and emotional dysfunction, helping restore optimal conditions for health, vitality and well-being.
CST is so gentle it is suitable for people of all ages, including babies and the elderly, and is particularly effective in acute or chronic cases where other traditional/complementary therapies have failed or are contraindicated (e.g. immediately after injury/surgery).
Therapy reviews and words of encouragement from those who have already experienced the benefits
A single treatment will be a minimum duration of one hour. However, due to the nature and process of the therapy, clients are encouraged to allow up to three hours for the first treatment. Subsequent treatments usually last one to two hours.Book a Session

I offer over 25 years' experience as a therapist, a passion for what I do, and a promise to respect and show unconditional positive regard for you at all times. We come into life as pure beings - but in the course of living real lives we sustain a few physical and emotional knocks along the way. I feel nothing but love when people come to me showing a desire to change; to improve their lives in some way. It's a sign of intelligence, humility, a courageous heart and an indomitable spirit.
I respect the trust placed in me and care deeply about what I do, taking pride in providing what many describe as 'the Rolls Royce of treatments'. My work is client-centered and my continued success depends entirely on client satisfaction and personal recommendation.

Reasons why CST can be a more effective treatment for your specific needs
Often the underlying cause of pain is a mystery; a joint presents within a normal physiological range of movement - but for some reason it gets stuck and the client experiences pain, restriction, discomfort. People are familiar with the body-mind connection and we often find there is a strong psycho-somatic element when the body is stuck or holding on to pain. For this reason, Anna is also qualified in psychotherapy in order to help clients release the emotional bonds to physical pain.
Cranio-sacral therapy is primarily used in instances of severe acute pain where manipulation and large movements of joints cannot be tolerated, thus speeding up the healing process. CST can also be used to effectively treat unexplained digestive issues which may also have underlying emotional connections.
Anna's interests in the body/mind connection have led her to achieve an Honours Degree in Complementary Therapies specialising in Stress Management whilst simultaneously studying Cranio-Sacral Therapy, Visceral Manipulation and Manual Articulation initially with the The British & European Osteopathic Association, and later with the Upledger Institute and The Barrall Institute.
