I would highly recommend investing in yourself or a loved one by booking in for a Biodynamic Craniosacral session with Lisa. When I discovered Lisa was offering this treatment I was curious to find out more and was nothing short of blown away by the experience and how the first session helped me along my healing journey. I am a yoga teacher and have been exposed to many different holistic healing therapies throughout my lifetime. More recently I was diagnosed with MS and I thought I had all my bases covered through diet, yoga, meditation, naturopathy and massage. Unfortunately my illness progressed and it was time to start medical treatment and find a more effective way to calm my nervous system. This is where the craniosacral treatment has helped me so much. I have found a sense of calmness, tranquility and peace like never before. Upon arrival at Embodymental Lisa greeted and invited me in to her sanctuary, where I instantly felt calm and safe. The warm energy in this beautiful space cannot be described but only experienced. Lisa's ability to hold and create a safe healing space is magical and expertise all rolled in one. After an hour of light touch, sound and breathwork, I felt a huge shift and release of stuck energy physically and emotionally, and most importantly my parasympathetic nervous system switched on. I left there feeling totally relaxed in body and mind and like a weight had been lifted I felt safe again in my body. What amazed me is that this lasted for days! I have been back for several sessions since and find each time this state of calmness and tranquility lasts for longer periods. Thank you so much Lisa! You have a wonderful gift to share and I am honoured and truly blessed to be one of your clients to experience this and find that sense of peace.

The experience of Craniosacral Therapy is one of mostly relaxation & deep calm. It is done fully clothed, while lying on a treatment bed cosy under a blanket.
Biodynamic Craniosacral Release is a gentle non-manipulative, light-touch bodywork modality that works on the Cranium, the Spine & the Sacrum area. It is a subtle, yet profound method for enhancing the function of the nervous system and returning balance and mobility to the entire body.
This safe and supportive process can allow for the release of deep-seated trauma and emotions held within the body, and supports in re-connecting with and expressing who we are at the deepest level.
This in turn leads to a greater sense of wholeness, clarity and well being.
"The single most important issue for traumatised people is to find a sense of safety in their own bodies. If you are not sending trauma patients for Craniosacral Therapy, you should" - Bessel Van Der Kolk MD - author of The Body Keeps the Score

More About Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy & Trauma Release
Traumatic stress, the reaction to a life-threatening event, arouses the nervous system to the extreme and activates three survival reflexes : FREEZE, FIGHT and FLIGHT.
If the trauma is not processed, then the unprocessed fear gets locked into our bodies - into our tissues. The holding of stress and trauma in our tissues can express itself in a multitude of symptoms including anxiety, pain and dissociation. In an attempt to separate ourselves from the pain and the implicit memory of the trauma, we dissociate to some degree from our body, losing our sense of self.
The body remembers what has happened, but not the mind. These memories must be accessed through the body with gentle body-centred therapies, such as Craniosacral work.
Craniosacral work is very effective in releasing the "issues in the tissues" because its foundation is based on presence and deep listening, and the experience of a session, is one of "safety"
Supporting the client to stay present to their physical body sensations during the sessions not only facilitates safety and releases implicit memories, but also helps the client to reintegrate their dissociated parts.
