"I have recently been able to witness the most profoundly touching and miraculous effects of this work. I recommended Lisa to work with a 5-month old baby who has severe birth trauma which resulted in the baby having multiple and prolonged epileptic seizures. In 4 sessions, I have seen this baby reconnect with her body and reclaim natural bodily functions that have allowed her to reduce the need for pain medication and to lengthen the time between seizures, with the feel that they are no longer her default to draw attention to what her real needs are.
This baby absolutely knows Lisa by her voice and touch and is so excited when in her presence. I witnessed her re-live her birth experience in only the 4th session! The stillness and sense of peace that the baby was bathed in was miraculous. Her breathing had softened her body was so relaxed and she was able to rest deeply. Her future looks much brighter from this treatment. I am always amazed by the profound depth and reach that this work has for resolving so many deeply held emotional issues that are stored in the nervous system and patterning within the body. Lisa’s ability is a gift, one I would highly recommend.”
Louise Gerondis, craniosacral therapist and yoga teacher
Craniosacral combined with Baby Bodywork involving baby stretching and health assessment based on protocols taught by paediatric osteopath Dr Jonathan Evans has profound benefits on babies, ranging from balancing musculature to easing breastfeeding difficulties, varying from birth trauma resolution to support through life-threatening illnesses. The therapeutic touch is light and gentle to soothe babies' nervous system which can help conditions like constipation, sleeping issues, inconsolable crying, feeding difficulties, hypersensitivity to touch, birth injuries, traumatic birth experience, anxiety of early separation.
How does Baby Bodywork benefit your baby?
The awareness that Baby Bodywork, with appreciation of prenatal and perinatal influences, is not generally recognised. Yet clinical experiences show that this nature of healing can support to repair difficult conditions that babies encounter during gestation period and birth journey.
With my deep awareness and orientation, I communicate through therapeutic touch with the babies to invite them to tell their early stories. With my keen sensitivity and empathy, I am attuned to understand through verbal and non-verbal cues from the babies to enable unwinding of early patterns.
I can’t emphasise enough the essential of early intervention. With the use of gentle bodywork, integrated with prenatal and perinatal healing, early patterns can be relieved to give babies the potency to thrive.
When does your baby need Bodywork?
When you see these signs, it is a good idea for your baby to have Craniosacral & Baby Bodywork session:
Whatever symptoms and conditions the babies are presenting, it is a confluence of multitude of experiences. It comes with complexity of the past that keeps the babies feeling overwhelmed. By working with you and your baby, early patterns can potentially be resolved.
What to expect in a session?
When I see you and your baby for the first time, I take time to understand your baby’s birth journey from the time of conception, and feeling into the non-verbal cues of your baby. Often, these non-verbal cues open doors into the state of your baby’s nervous system.
Treatment is done while you are holding or nursing your baby, or having your baby lying down on treatment table. I gently touch your baby’s legs as I introduce myself. I softly move your baby to assess the musculature for any visual signs of restrictions. With the non-invasive and gentle touch, I seek your baby’s permission each time as I navigate around the body to encourage the cranio-sacral rhythms to balance nervous system and promote natural alignment.
You may notice these in your baby during or after session: enhanced movements in head, neck, jaw, tongue, arms; easier passing gas, burping, stooling; improved latch & comfort while nursing (more comfort for you!); calmer and relaxed.

"Lisa is Incredible. She is a true nervous system whisperer! I feel I had a reset every time I've been to see her. My newborn, released his bowels every time after a session with Lisa and progressed better after every appointment. Looking forward to seeing you again when I have my next baby."
