"Lisa has the most healing hands. Her presence is so calm and loving. This was exactly what my body craved.
She helped me to safely feel my experience completely and process hidden emotions in such a gentle way
that is non-threatening and somewhat inviting. It's a safe and allowing feeling I've learnt to incorporate into my daily life."

Roots of Craniosacral Therapy
Craniosacral has its roots in osteopathy, combining scientific understanding of the body with awareness skills. Its unique touch comes with an appreciation of our innate ability to heal, encouraging body-mind connection to remember and embody our inherent health. By orienting to the organising forces forming us as embryo, termed as "Breath of Life", it supports healing process physiologically and psycho-emotionally, increases resilience and vitality.
How Craniosacral has benefited my clients
It is my privilege to have supported clients of all ages, even prenatal and newborn in optimising foetal position and healing birth injuries. I have also treated conditions like anxiety and depression, digestive and sleep disorder, pre and post operative recovery, chronic pain and illnesses, vertigo, attention deficit disorder, accident trauma, early childhood and birth traumas. Many have also used it to nourish the body for general wellbeing, personal growth and spiritual development. It has given me much joy to witness its far-reaching benefits.
How Craniosacral resolved my birth trauma
Craniosacral came to me 10 years ago when I was having unexplained pain in my head and neck. Visits to medical practitioners made little improvement, making me realise it was beyond sports injuries and bad postures. Everything started to change after my treatments. The therapist made me curious of her palpating skills as if she was having a conversation with my body. My heart opened with an emotional release as if something locked inside had a chance to let go. My body expressed jerks and spasm as if something held tight inside had a chance to breathe.
Some months later, I experienced a moment of epiphany, sensing unnatural force in my head, feeling uncomfortable torsion in my spine. A spark of inner knowing struck me, the memory of my birth passage, the use of forceps. Tearing with relief and joy, the birth patterns locked in my body began to find closure.
Touching the cellular memories has led me to a deeper understanding of trauma resolution, prenatal and perinatal healing. Just like the therapists who worked with me before, I can now be the mirror reflecting to your body to allow resolution to happen in a safe way. My body has gained the knowledge of how. This is the reason why I am deeply passionate about Craniosacral Therapy.
What to expect in a session?
The therapeutic effect starts with you verbalising your goal. It is followed with light touch while sitting or lying fully clothed on treatment table. You are then guided into exploring sensations in your body which helps to be present with what is, letting go of “should” and “should not”.
Generally you will be able to feel definite change after about 3 sessions on a weekly basis. If you have a deep-rooted issue, it may take more. Having said that, some clients have found their issues relieved after one treatment. My suggestion is to be open and trust the process.
