Be kind to your body through touch, sound and talk

with Bernadette Kirwan

Upledger CranioSacral Therapy is a therapy that is kind to your body. Maybe you have a nagging pain in your shoulder. It doesn’t stop you doing things but it won’t go away. Maybe you have recurrent patterns of thinking that hold you back. Maybe you just want to be more relaxed in your body and mind. CranioSacral Therapy can help bring about the kind of changes you are looking for.

Daily life creates stresses and strains. Our bodies absorb these physical, mental and emotional strains and tensions. Eventually the tensions build up and our bodies tighten in response. These strains and tensions transfer into the central nervous system and have a major influence on your health and well-being. The central nervous system is in constant communication with the craniosacral system. Our bones, soft tissues and the fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord are the craniosacral system.

In CranioSacral Therapy we use light touch techniques to help you to focus on your body and to release tensions in the craniosacral system. We listen. We observe. We talk about what's happening. We notice changes. And changes are usually the start of you releasing tension in your muscles, tissues, cells and mind.

In CranioSacral therapy we work with your whole body. You are fully clothed. The therapist’s touch is very light. We give your body time and our full attention. We often work from your head and your low back (the top and tail of the craniosacral system) but we also work on other parts of your body too. Changes emerge: you might feel softening, pulsing or tingling sensations. You might feel warmth. You might feel deeply relaxed. You might experience bigger physical movements. You might have moments of insight such as a memory of an injury. Body changes and insights are the key to your self-understanding. And that can lead to lasting changes.

The types of problems that people have used CranioSacral Therapy for include many stress and tension-related conditions, musculoskeletal pain, headaches and various acute and chronic conditions. CranioSacral Therapy can help to improve your whole body health and contribute to your overall well-being.

CranioSacral Therapy is good for adults, for children, for the elderly, for everyone. In a therapy session the client and the therapist are guided by the body’s inner sense of what is needed. This means that your body allows you to explore to the level that is right for you. You are in control. And your body can guide you to new levels of awareness about yourself.

Coaching for dyslexia/dyspraxia


  • Peter Hess Sound Massage

    Nepalese singing bowls are placed on your body. When they are struck, you can hear the gentle sounds and you can experience those sounds travelling through your body with soft, wave-like vibrations. You begin to feel a calm and near-hypnotic stillness within.

  • Coaching for dyslexia and dyspraxia

    Specialised coaching helps you to understand how dyslexia and dyspraxia influence the way you meet life. You can learn to understand yourself better and manage yourself successfully in work, in relationships, in life.

  • Bernadette Kirwan

    Bernadette’s therapy sessions focus on an individual therapy but the influences of all of the therapy practices are drawn into her work to offer you an experience that soothes and supports your body and mind.
