Please use my online booking system to make an appointment in Miller’s Yard, York, on a Thursday evening (5.30-8.30pm), or the Serenity Centre, Harrogate, on a Friday (10am-5pm).

I will always endeavour to fit someone in at short notice but please try and give me 24 hours notice of an appointment cancellation or you may be charged the full fee.

Please note that I accept cash or cheque only.

If you would like to buy a gift voucher for treatment for someone please contact me. CST makes a lovely gift – especially for a new baby. A fabulous way to welcome a little one.

What to expect at an appointment

Adults

The treatment is done on a treatment couch and clients remain fully clothed unless receiving acupuncture when clothing is removed to access the chosen points.  I usually settle clients with a ‘tune in’ hold at the shoulders or feet, which involves some relaxation and mindfulness techniques. When we both feel your system has settled, and you are comfortable and relaxed, the treatment may progress with acupuncture and/or CST (craniosacral therapy). Many clients find the combination of these therapies to be very helpful but some will want just one therapy. I respect and work with my clients’ wishes. If acupuncture is used I may take your pulse several times during the session – to help select the points and as an indicator of how your body system is responding. With CST, treatment does not only focus on the head -CST is a whole body treatment where areas of numbness, pain, or tense/bound up tissues may be gently held. Whichever treatment is used, I hope you will feel truly listened to. The approach is incredibly gentle, working with the body, at your pace, restoring vitality and health from within.

Babies and Children

The session includes parents and may be done with the mother or father holding the infant. If bringing a toddler please do bring a favourite toy or book. I do not use needles with infants and children.
