Testimonials for Craniosacral Therapy


While dealing with grief after the loss of my partner, regular craniosacral therapy sessions with Heike have helped me more so far than the sessions with my psychotherapist as I can notice more immediate comforting and calming effect. After every session with Heike the world seems to be a better and friendlier place than it is before. I feel at peace, grounded and present.” Gosia P.

“After a session with Heike I had the best night sleep I can ever recall. I woke up feeling relaxed and peaceful.” Anonymous

I had a chronic back ache for 4 years on and off. I tried physiotherapy exercises, but they did not help me at all. When I went to see Heike for a cranial session, my back ache was so bad that I couldn’t work. After the session I felt so much better, but followed her advice to go home and rest and drink lots of water. The next day there was a little pain left, but have been pain free since then.” Barbara

Highly recommend Heike – she is gentle, has great warmth and a very calming presence. I felt much more grounded and clear headed after my session.” B. Thorpe

I had two crushed vertebrae as a result of cancer, they caused terrible sciatic pain. After a few sessions with Heike there was a notable improvement in the situation, which made life bearable. Although the pain did not completely go it reduced enough to get me off of the horrible pain medicine I was on. The other effect of the cranial sessions was to give me a feeling of complete relaxation, worth it just for that.” Martin Adams, local artist

My sessions with Heike are the best time of the week as I can rest and let go of everything that has happened during the week. The cranial sessions are wonderful and I have noticed an improvement in my sleep. I like the warm, gentle, comforting holding that give me a sensation as if the sun was shining inside me and find it the most relaxing experience. This is the most engaging therapy ever and it feels very connecting and beyond gentle. It feels like a secure and safe holding and I love it.” Elizabeth Colwell

“I had never heard of Biodynamic Craniosacral Theraphy, and I went to my first session thinking I was going to receive a massage. Little did I know that it was going to be for me the beginning of a fascinating journey of discovery. I didn’t have any specific pain, so I can’t really comment on its healing benefits, but it left me speechless as per the energy flow it moved inside me, the sensations that I had, every time different and new, and that made me perceive my body as something really alive and full of trapped energy. Until then, I had always looked at my body as something in decay: you get wrinkles, you put on weight, your hairs turn grey… From the very first time Heike put her hands on my ankles I felt a rush of energy, I felt my blood flowing…It was a bit of a shock, to be honest. Since then, every session has been different, and I kept going spurred by my curiosity. Every time I came home with new considerations and thoughts. Heike has always been supportive and helped me try to understand what those emotions and visions that were coming up could mean for me, and she has somehow helped me take some very important decisions. In a way, Heike has taught me to trust my body and listen to it. My body knows everything, way before I do.” Roberta M., interpreter

… The main physical issue I came to her with was continuous lower back pain that I had has for 2 and 1/2 year since my son was born. It was preventing me from sleeping properly at night and made any position uncomfortable after a little while. I had tried many different approaches such as yoga, osteopath, massages, naturopathy but unfortunately the pain remained. The pain must have disappeared after the 4th session, at  first I didn’t even realise that it had gone. I think it’s quite typical of CST, it works in subtle ways that are not obvious but can be quite transformative at a physical, mental and emotional level. It certainly has been for me…” Melodie (N.B.
