Hello

I would like to introduce myself and give some background to my experiences as a nurse practising in Craniosacral Therapy - I initially trained in the UK as a Registered General Nurse in 1992 and then trained as a Children's Nurse in 2001. I have worked in several UK hospitals and in Canada at CHEO and KHSC working with infants, children and adult age groups.

In 2006 I carried out Post Graduate training in Pain Management at the University of Bradford (UK) and then a Masters in Nursing Studies at Queen's University, Kingston (2009).

Following this, I carried out 5 years of pain research in the department of Anaesthesia at KGH/Queen's. In 2015, I began working at the Kingston Orthopaedic Pain Institute where I worked for 6 years as a chronic pain assessment nurse. I am currently working on my PhD in Nursing.

For the last 14 years, I have also been utilising my training in Craniosacral Therapy through the Upledger Institute, completing courses in CST 1, CST 2, SER 1 and SER 2.

Witnessing the wonderful benefits that result from this gentle hands-on technique are what have led me to pursue this passion and offer CST treatments in Kingston.

Like other complementary therapies, there are a variety of conditions that can be treated through CST. The benefits include pain relief, better sleep, improved mobility, relaxation, reduced agitation and anxiety to name a few. 

What is CST?

Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle hands-on complementary therapy.

Treatments are carried out with the client laying on the treatment table and sessions last for 45 mins. Clients are encouraged to wear loose comfortable clothing.

 

Light touch and holds on various parts of the body are used to assess the craniosacral rhythm.  Feeling the flow helps identify areas of restriction.  Movement of limbs through positional tissue release and head holds help the release of tension and pain – a relaxing experience with huge benefits to your well-being.

 

In general a series of 2 or 3 sessions will help identify if this treatment will be helpful for your health issue.

 

All age groups can benefit. This gentle body work aims to enhance the body's own capacity to heal, working to create a balanced cranial rhythm and a more comfortable you!

 

Craniosacral therapy was developed by John Upledger an Osteopathic Physician.

I look forward to treating you!
