Nourishing Touch

Last week I was assisting with a Biodynamic Craniosacral therapy training here in Vancouver BC. The tutor for this block was Steve Haines, this was my first time meeting him. He teaches in London and Switzerland as well as on the Body Intelligence courses which happen all over the world. It is really great getting a different teacher, and finding out how they do things. Steve Haines style is very verbal as well as very open and precise. I found it rather challenging, to be honest, because being verbal is probably the area that I have the most trouble with. I like to be quiet and just listen to the client’s system.

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy Training


Flattr this
In 2003, I began a Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy training in New Zealand. I was a chef at the time, so this was entirely new for me. Prior to starting the training I spent about 3 years researching various healing modalities to make sure I put my hard-earned money into the right one for me. I knew I wanted to do craniosacral therapy, but at the time it was hard to find anyone to teach it. I stumbled on this course when I was studying herbs and nutrition at Wellpark College in Auckland and knew right away it was what I had been looking for.

As a chef, I worked long hours and the standing combined with chopping, whipping, stirring, grilling… was taking a toll on my body. Not only that, but I smoked more than I ate, and loved a cup of coffee more than a bowl of soup. At the time I actually thought it a waste of money to buy food! (Bear in mind that I worked in kitchens so I always had access to the best food without having to buy it for at least one meal a day.) My body was falling apart. I knew I was on the wrong path and I needed to find a way to get healthy again.

The Terror of Electroshock Treatment

Blackberry Brambles and Anarchy
A couple years ago I read a book about how women used to be given electro-shock treatment for their ‘hysteria’ and assumed that those terrible days were over decades ago so I was very interested in this article about how electroshock treatment has had a revival and is now being used with even higher voltage than in the ‘good ole days’.

Excerpts taken from:
