I pride myself in running a most ethical and professional practice and am bound by the CSTA, their team of lawyers and the guidelines that they provide to members, which of course is in strict accordance with government guidelines.
Following publication of the new lockdown legislation for England, and as a member of the CSTA (which is a verifying organisation for the CNHC) and a Craniosacral Therapy Practitioner, I am pleased to confirm that I have been given permission to continue to practise, in short where the benefits of the session outweigh the risk of transmission of the virus. Your safety is my number one priority and I will ensure that we are within the guidelines before you book and if need be, we will wait.
Safety is my number one priority as it is yours I’m sure. Covid secure measures are in place of course…..I am now having regular asymstomatic tests to give you extra peace of mind.
Please do not suffer in silence, we are facing a tsunami of mental health problems this year and CST can be of enormous help so please don’t wait, get in touch.
As Craniosacral Therapy has been placed under ‘medical and health services including mental health services, I am open and seeing both new clients and ones who are in maintenance.
We are all needing to look after ourselves now more than ever, boy has this year been challenging! So please don’t wait, get in touch – help is just a phone call away!
The clinics are Covid secure – all government guidelines are taken very seriously in order to keep everyone safe. There is a ‘Consent to Treatment’ form which you and I will both sign at your first appointment, as we agree to follow those guidelines (link here) – please read in advance of your appointment. You will be asked to wash your hands on arrival and I will take your temperature. I will be wearing a visor and a mask and there is now a requirement for you wear a face covering if you are able.
This is a short CASE STUDY of a lady who came to see me suffering with M.E. and DEPRESSION (we’ll call her Karen).
Karen came to see me having been suffering with ME for about 12 years. During that time her symptoms had steadily got worse, despite trying lots of different ways to help herself. She had also during this time become very DEPRESSED. She was often bedbound with fatigue and would ‘crash’ frequently after relatively little activity – she described the fatigue as a 7 out of 10 (10 being the worst she could possibly imagine). She said the depression was a 10 out of 10 and she was experiencing back pain which felt like a ‘ripping’ and she scored that as a 6.5 out of 10. Her main goal was “to feel alive / happy / healthy again”, which she said hadn’t for at least 6 years.
Improvements came after just one session and after she’d had five, she said the depression was a 1/10 and the fatigue just 3/10. The pain was improving a lot also.
It was clear to both Karen and myself that further improvement was almost inevitable so she maintained her sessions with me, although they became more spread out. Karen found that having a CST session every 6 weeks needed to be part of her “care plan” and would “keep her on a level”, even to the point where she continues to see further improvements even now.
The last time I saw her, she got tearful telling me how CST had “changed her life” and how she had gone from “being largely bed-bound to LIVING A FULLER AND HAPPIER LIFE’.
I often see people suffering with extreme and chronic fatigue. It can even be progressive. They have usually tried a lot of other things before they come and see me and are desperate. They are unable to work, sometimes not even able to drive to come and see me and are relying on other people to look after them.
Of course there are fundamental things to look at first where these is fatigue.
Are you getting enough sleep?
How is your diet?
Is there an underlying medical cause eg thyroid issues, hemochromatosis etc (seek blood tests to be sure).
I still have fatigue, so how does Craniosacral Therapy help?
What I am really talking about though is people who are suffering with fatigue as part of a bigger diagnosis such as M.E or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) or who have simply got gradually more and more run down for whatever reason.
Let’s look at the unique way that CST can help, at a very deep and profound level to build the resources of the system and alleviate fatigue – I have seen it many times!
When I tune into your system during a session, I will be tuning into the ‘tidal rhythms’ which are present in your body. This tells me a lot about the resources that you have and how well you are generally. Almost inevitably, where there is fatigue, the quality of these tidal rhythms is quiet or lacking potency. I will then look to carry out certain procedures (not manipulative) which have the effect of ‘recharging your batteries’. Over time (and this process will often take several sessions), the resources of the system build and the effects of that are profound.
It is quite common for someone to get back to leading a much more active life, getting back to work and so on as a result of the improvements made.
...the pain in my neck is a lot better, I haven't had nearly as many waves of anxiety and I feel a lot happier!"
