"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 is 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.
It is my privilege to support clients of all ages, and in life transitions of birth and death. My experience ranges from treating 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 trauma, as well as those with special needs. Many clients have also used this therapy to nourish their bodies for general wellbeing, personal growth and spiritual development. It has given me much joy to witness its far-reaching benefits for their physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.
How does Craniosacral benefits clients of all ages?
Commonly, our body is perceived as a living machine. When something goes wrong, the mechanics assess the machine to see how to fix it. Instead, Craniosacral involves the appreciation of internal forces that resembles the embryological forces that formed us in the womb. These forces are the subtle rhythmic flow of fluid continues to express in our body, known as Potency, the driver of Health in our body. Rather than perceiving what's wrong with your body, it's my job to palpate in whole and resonate with Potency to resolve issues & restore Health. It's your Potency that dictates the treatment plan. This is the heart of Biodynamic Craniosacral.
How does Craniosacral support children to resolve early imprints?
By facilitating the same embryological forces that formed us, Biodynamic Craniosacral often fosters profound resolution of trauma imprinted during gestation and birth. The therapy supports babies and children in a gentle, respectful way, working with neuro-endocrine-immune system, promoting natural cranio-sacral rhythmic flow to restore balance and health. The nature of gestation and birth is one of the most critical factors in paving one’s future – whether it is positive or negative influence. Why wait till these imprints become ingrained in the body and brain? Repair them now before the negative patterns are set, adversely affecting development.
How does Craniosacral co-regulate mother and baby?
Through embryonic and foetal development, the heart field of the baby is stabilised by the mother’s heart field, which creates imprints sealed upon each other. By empathetically listening to mother and baby, their verbal and non-verbal cues, a relational heart field often surges to envelope and embosom their natural emotional attunement to each other. Mother’s heart field begins to reflect her state of being and be present with her emotional tones to encourage more coherency within herself. Her coherency becomes the resource of safety for the baby to self-regulate. The more capacity for the mother to self-regulate the more ability she has to co-regulate with her baby.
"I am grateful beyond words that I was able to experience Craniosacral at the time when I was suffering from pain with difficulty walking and sitting. Lisa was patient and all ears when I described my condition. I saw results from the first session itself. When I went to see her I was in tremendous pain and when I walked out after the session, I felt I was different. In the subsequent sessions, Lisa addressed the issues that I had and each time I was amazed at how it was bringing a change in my condition towards healing. Craniosacral Therapy needs to be experienced to believe it and I am so glad I had Lisa to help me heal during my painful times. Thank you, Lisa."

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.

Craniosacral came to me ten 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.
"I have been Lisa's craniosacral therapy client for over two years. Lisa taps deeply into the field of innate healing,
and her zeal for further expanding her knowledge and expertise to heal and care for people deeply inspires me.
Sessions with Lisa felt like safe, deep, peaceful meditations through her still, intuitive and calmly healing presence.
This has helped me go deeper in peace, healing and in tune with my body, mind and life energy.
I feel blessed to have Lisa by my side in my journey of healing and evolving in this life."
