About Alison

My journey into complementary therapy began in the nineties, having always had a keen interest and natural desire to help others – but not really knowing how, as life had started out on a more conventional path.

I started my training with an ITEC massage course and was hooked, going onto study lymphatic drainage, aromatherapy and Indian head massage. I had always worked intuitively, and believed in the simple healing power of touch.

I was privileged to have a tutor who had trained directly under Dr John Upledger – (founder of Cranioscaral Therapy) who suggested I work and train with her. Here I found my true vocation.

My training in Craniosacral Therapy took me on a journey of self discovery. Having treatments myself throughout my training made me realise the huge impact this gentle but deeply holistic therapy can have. It helped me on so many levels both physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

Having experienced and seen the profound changes both these therapies can bring, has made me determined to help others by bringing together these powerful hands on healing therapies. I have since gone on to study and practice Reiki and meditation in my daily life.

I have had the privilege to work with numerous clients both in private practice, hospitals, and with the terminally ill, each who have taught me so much about the human body, mind and spirit, I feel immensely grateful to them and the teachers I have met along the way.

Canine Treatments

I have always put my hands on to treat animals and after my own dog got run over; having obtained extensive injuries I wanted to extend my practice not only to help her, but other dogs that are in pain, or injured.

I have trained with Julia Robertson at the Galen Therapy Centre and qualified as a Canine Myotherapist. I now have the privilege of working on our canine companions too.
