Craniosacral therapy

Craniosacral Therapy

What is it?

Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a light-touch therapy treatment that can provide relief from symptoms that occur when stress, injury or disease overwhelm the body’s ability for self-healing.

Stemming from osteopathy, CST works from the principle that the body has its own innate capacity to heal and the craniosacral therapist facilitates this healing.

What does it help with?

The therapy can be of great benefit to people in every stage of life and for a variety of health problems.

It is particularly effective at providing relief from acute and chronic issues.

Some of the more common ones being headaches, neck and/or back pain, addiction, anxiety, multiple sclerosis, autism and the side effects of cancer treatment.

Craniosacral therapy can be used alone or as an integrative or complementary treatment alongside things such as medically prescribed treatments as well as physical therapy.

What’s a session like?

Sessions take place in-person at either Nyon or Grens.

A session starts with a short discussion of your health history and the issues you’re looking to resolve.

You then lie fully clothed on a massage table with the hands-on treatment taking about 40 minutes. Throughout the session the therapist dialogues with the client to support the treatment.

I regularly referred children to Therese and the feedback I received from parents was always positive and often glowing.

She made a profound difference to many children and families. Her support was delivered with sensitivity and kindness;  essential qualities when working with vulnerable children.

Integrative baby therapy

Integrative Baby Therapy

What is it?

The way a baby comes into this world can create physical and emotional patterns with a potentially life-long impact.

Babies can have unresolved issues around their births particularly when the pregnancy was complicated or the birth was particularly long, assisted or traumatic. These issues can be manifested in feeding and sleep issues, colic and inconsolable crying.

What does it help with?

With an understanding of baby body language and differentiating between types of crying (a need cry versus a memory cry) the integrative therapist can help support the expression of the birth experience and resolve some of the issues the baby is experiencing. It also fosters family bonding.

Toddlers and older children with learning difficulties, sleep and behavior issues may also benefit.

There are no specific age limits to the therapy as principles can be adapted from newborns to children of all ages. Even as adults we carry the imprints of our birth.

What’s a session like?

Sessions take place in-person at either Nyon or Grens.

We discuss pregnancy, birth and issues that may be affecting the baby or family unit. Time is then given to see what the baby wants to express. 

Dialogue with the baby and his or her parents continues throughout the session. Any hands-on contact is explained beforehand and is permission based.

Open quote
“I recommend craniosacral therapy for all newborn moms and babes-regardless of mode of birth.

Craniosacral is gentle and noninvasive while effectively restoring balance and alignment to newborns especially those with feeding, sleeping or digestive challenges.

Therese provides a calm reassuring presence that is invaluable in the first days after birth especially for first time parents.”

Distant Craniosacral Therapy

What is it?

Distant healing is another way to receive Craniosacral therapy from the safety and comfort of your own home.

Like in-person sessions the focus is on freeing any restrictions held in the body in order to alleviate pain and stress.

What does it help with?

Distant craniosacral therapy can provide relief from a host of health problems and is particularly effective in helping to heal acute and chronic problems.

Some of the more common ones being headaches, neck and/or back pain, addiction, anxiety, multiple sclerosis, autism and the side effects of cancer treatment.

What’s a session like?

Sessions begin at a scheduled time via phone/Skype/WhatsApp. The session begins with a short discussion of health history and any specific concerns.

Adults can then find a comfortable and quiet place to lie down where you won't be disturbed. 

Families with children or small babies can find a place to sit together either on a sofa or on pillows on the floor.

Place your phone or computer nearby so we can continue dialogue throughout. At the end of the session there will be a time for questions and discussion.

Open quote
Years of hours long daily practice and rehearsals leave their mark, and musicians and performers seek therapeutic healing which revives not just their muscles, but nurtures their resilience and inner calm.

Craniosacral sessions with Therese were a vital support during periods of up to five hours a day of intense playing, teaching and rehearsing. 

I particularly appreciated her dedication to resolving longer term tension issues, and taking time within a session for processes to come to their natural end.

Therese invited me to experience distance cranio and we were both impressed with the effectiveness using merely voice guidance in real time. 

Therese’s presence is empathic, considerate and professional and I highly recommend her therapy both in person and for online appointments.
