“Melissa emerged me into an hour of total relaxation as she carried out her gentle CST on me, I left feeling refreshed and grounded. In the following days I noticed that my legs and feet were no longer achey. I also found that my usual headaches have lessened. I would totally recommend Melissa and her CST as a gentle and non invasive treatment for pain or even just as a treat to enhance your general wellbeing”

“I have recently had 2 Craniosacral sessions with Melissa. This is a very gentle, no-invasive therapy. In the first session Melissa concentrated on my hip area which had been giving me dull aching pain at different times of the day and night. Since this session I have not experienced this aching sensation. In my second session Melissa concentrated on my middle back area. While I still have some pain at times in this area it has certainly lessened. I would recommend this to anyone as a therapy to try.”

“I’ve found CST to be beneficial for me with my back injury and subsequent arthritis. At first I was a bit doubtful, as I couldn’t see how such a simple procedure could work. However I have found that CST, in conjunction with the gentle Yoga movements Melissa has taught me, has made a significant difference in my daily life.”
