Maria has been devoted to Craniosacral Therapy and the Somato-Emotional Release technique for over a decade.  She also studied Visceral Manipulation developed by world-renowned French Osteopath and Physical Therapist Jean-Pierre Barral at the Upleddger Institute.

Her interest in the body and health studies began with Traditional Chinese Medicine, then Zen Shiatsu and later Electro-Magnetic Field (EMF) Balance.

With these skills Maria is able to connect and travel through your body’s geography to re-establish its psychosomatic balance using a gentle, yet deep, form of hand’s on manipulation work.  The work being so sympathetic that it is very safe and also profound for babies and children.

She is grateful every time her clients decide to open a small door in themselves, to begin a journey together.

“We are always surprised when external connections happen, and we call them “coincidences”, and sometimes we manage to link one to another. I always thought how wonderful, how lucky we would be if we were able to reproduce these same experiences within our own body, and feel the same connections travelling through our own body’s geography. This is the way in which craniosacral therapy works, and the reason for my fascination with it.”

Craniosacral Therapy for babies and children

Trust your children in Maria’s hands

Birth is undoubtedly one of the most important moments in our lives, and it is also really our first trauma.

In the final weeks leading up to our birth there is less and less space in our mother’s womb.

This compression as we enter the pelvis in preparation for birth and then the entire birthing process at the time of delivery can cause the bones of the skull to overlap, put our heads into hyperextension and turn our necks into extreme positions.

Sometimes these birth traumas correct themselves but sometimes these issues need professional treatment especially of the vagus nerve as it can be blocked and create symptoms including digestive problems, nervousness, lack of appetite, feeding issues, reflux, ear and jaw pain.

In the event that a delivery requires forceps, it will always have a cranial impact, rotation of the meninges, cranial overlap or decrease of the cranial holes.

Musculoskeletal injuries sustained by newborns during birth can cause many lifelong problems if they are not corrected properly.

Craniosacral therapy and massage is known to relieve the tension and pressure in the skull, bones and the body of babies helping to relieve pain, assist them to recover from birth trauma and allow them to thrive and grow.
