Sydney Craniosacral Centre
I am a fully qualified, certified and registered biodynamic craniosacral therapist and myofascial therapist, in full-time private practice since 2011 both in Switzerland and Australia. I trained at the International Biodynamic School of Craniosacral Therapy in Switzerland and at the German Society of Myofascial Release Therapy.
Upon completing my diploma in Remedial massage in Sydney, I was looking for many years for a therapy that goes beyond the physical and was particularly drawn to integrating body and mind as I appreciated as a therapist how issues in our physical, mental and emotional body are closely connected and impact our overall health. I found the perfect bridge in working with all these components of the body when I undertook further extensive training with the International Institute of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy. My diploma in Myofascial Release provides a seamless addition in allowing me to work more directly and deeper with the physical body and its rich connective tissue, releasing muscular contraction, compressed & tensed muscles, fascial restrictions, emotional memories and allowing for the entire body to release and unwind. Blog: more-than-our-physical-body.
I treat a wide variety of conditions and symptoms oa: headaches, migraines, back, neck and shoulder problems, knee and hip problems, whiplash, concussion, ear ringing, nerve pain, arthritis, tendonitis, chronic pain, post traumatic stress injuries, teeth grinding, jaw problems, post operative and any kind of stress & tension related symptoms. Combining Myofascial release into my treatments, proves to be an excellent addition for cases like whiplash, TMJ, tinnitus, chronic pain and myofascial pain syndrome. My treatments address physical symptoms whilst releasing stresses and tensions deep from within the nervous system as physical and emotional blockages are dissolved.
With a deep understanding for the way the body and its nervous system operates and the stories it holds, I also treat clients that have deeper underlying issues and imprints stored in their body, that need to be addressed and shifted not only physically but also emotionally and energetically. This can manifest as various symptoms like chronic inflammation, chronic fatigue, multiple pain syndrome, anxiety, panic attacks, sleep disorders, addiction, depression, adrenal fatigue, burn out and chronic pain. Here I work with the physical body and with the emotional qualities of stress/shock responses that are held within the body either through trauma, accidents, work experiences or life circumstances. Our bodies speaks to us through sensations, images and feelings, learning to recognise and listen to these messages can be an important part in recovery. These sessions can be combined with Embodiment exercises, Guided Imagery or Enhancing Resourcing Skills.
Once a fortnight, I volunteer at the Calvary Hospital in Kogarah, where I treat palliative care patients, their beautiful carers and hard-working staff. I love to travel, I am mad about good food and will travel for good food, in particular for Asian food! Yoga and meditation are part of my daily diet and in the weekends you can find me outdoors enjoying the beaches and beautiful surroundings of Sydney.
I am in the long:) process of writing my first book: The Issues are in Tissues - Healing through Craniosacral Therapy.
‘Having experienced the deeply physical and emotional releases Craniosacral Therapy and Myofascial Release can bring to my clients with great results, I look forward to continue helping my clients alleviate pain, stress and tension patterns and restore optimum health. pls see: clients testimonials and my Google Reviews on the internet.
