Upledger Therapy is a light touch, powerful and intelligent form of bodywork that addresses the central nervous system together with the membranes and bones that surround it. Through a series of specific techniques and manipulation, tension and restriction in any part of this system can be released, improving it's function and addressing a wide range of health issues.......
Another aspect of this work is Somato Emotional Release which is combined when appropriate with the Cranio Sacral Therapy to gently release any emotional component of the physical problem. The SER component uses open questions,visualisation and dialoguing to assist this process. headaches and migraines neck and back problems (including post surgery) whiplash jaw issues digestive issues chronic pain and dysfunction multiple sclerosis anxiety and depression PTSD babies with sleeping problems, colic or other issues children with sleeping or eating problems, ASD, ADHD, sensory processing disorder or a wide variety of other disorders.
I am one of the UKs leading Paediatric Specialist and have taught Paediatric Healthcare internationally.
Families with babies and children come for support and therapy with many issues such as difficult births, digestive problems, difficulty sleeping and settling, cerebral palsy, Attention Deficit Disorder, Dyspraxia, Dyslexia, Autism, Sensory Processing Dysfunction, residual effects of birth from a mother with alcohol or drug addiction, bonding issues in the case of adoption and fostering, childhood migraines, recurrent ear infections, glue ear, eating problems and many others.
Treatment sessions are relaxed and informal with plenty of toys, playing and laughter. Children usually are happy to come for their appointments and are of course not expected to lie still and silent on the treatment couch!!
I am also a specialist in gut and digestive issues and have developed a new curriculum for the International Association of Healthcare Educators on the Second Brain/Enteric Nervous System in the gut.
My book "It's All in Your Gut" , launched this year in the USA and the UK is all about the intimate relationship between our gut and our emotional history.
As well as being a Upledger CranioSacral Therapist, I am also a dedicated yogi, with 10 years of practice behind me. Coming from a dancing background, I found yoga after a near death experience and found that it enlightened me through relaxation and breathing. As a result I became medication free and want to share my love and passion for the meditative and physical aspects of this practice that give me peace and freedom. I am an Ashtanga teacher and a yoga therapist and combine these wonderful approaches with CranioSacral Therapy where appropriate.
