Cranio-Sacral Therapy Oxford
PHYSICAL THERAPIES TO HELP RESOLVE TENSION, INJURY, CHRONIC SYMPTOMS OR EMOTIONAL ISSUES:
I offer a range of hands-on therapies (Cranio-Sacral Therapy, Shiatsu, Reiki and Intuitive Healing) to help people who would like to:
- Release physical tension and back/neck/shoulder pain;
- Relax more deeply;
- Heal unresolved physical injuries (such as whiplash or following an accident);
- Resolve symptoms such as headaches/migraines, digestive/menstrual problems, ear-nose-throat issues, sciatica, TMJ (jaw) problems and asthma;
- Heal and resolve emotional / stress-related issues;
- Gain more self-awareness;
- Learn techniques that will help them to create / maintain their health and wellbeing;
- Boost their overall health and energy levels, and sense of inner peace and wellbeing.
Each treatment is tailored to your individual needs. The first consultation will include a discussion and brief case history so we can determine what the best approach would be for your particular case.
Cranio-Sacral Therapy: a gentle, hands-on therapy, which focuses primarily on restoring health to the 'cranio-sacral system' - the bones, membranes and fluids which surround the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system). The cranio-sacral and central nervous systems are intimately connected to and influence the functioning of the whole body (via a complex matrix of connective tissue and nerve pathways): therefore, restriction or misalignments in the cranio-sacral or central nervous systems affects the functioning of other parts of the body - and vice versa. All the structures of the cranio-sacral system express subtle, rhythmic motions, which correspond with health or 'dis-ease' in the person.
Treatments begin with me 'tuning in' to your cranio-sacral system using gentle touch, in order to determine areas of restriction or misalignment. Using gentle techniques, I then help your body to release any holding patterns in order to restore free and healthy movement - resulting in a corresponding improvement in your symptoms and overall health and wellbeing. Cranio Sacral Therapy is a deeply healing and relaxing treatment, which calms the whole central nervous system, and so is excellent for any head/spine related symptoms, as well as all tension and stress-related issues (eg IBS, headaches/migraines, menstrual irregularities, recurrent infections, fatigue, anxiety, etc).
Shiatsu: a Japanese acupressure massage, in which I apply gentle thumb/palm/elbow pressure, stretches and manipulation to your whole body to help release tension and pain, realign your musculo-skeletal system, rebalance your energy systems and induce deep relaxation – in order to re-establish optimum health and well- being. Treatments begin with a full case history and energy diagnosis from your abdomen (energy centre) so that I can gain a better understanding of any areas that need re-balancing.
Reiki: A gentle yet powerful form of energy healing in which the practitioner intentionally connects with and channels a particular frequency of healing energy, using the gentle touch of their hands to direct this energy towards the main organs and energy centres (chakras) of your body. All symptoms or illness are reflected as a corresponding imbalance in a person’s energy field. Reiki helps to restore balance to your energy field, helping to alleviate associated pain, symptoms or illness.
Intuitive Healing: a unique form of healing, which evolved of many years of experience as a therapist and from discovering my ability to ‘see’ and ‘feel’ where the energy is blocked in a person’s body / energy field, and where they are holding tension or unresolved emotions. Treatments begin with me ‘tuning in’ to your body and energy field using gentle touch and observation, to determine where healing is most needed. Next I use a combination of gentle touch and energy healing to help to release any physical, mental/emotional or energy blockages and restore balance wherever it is needed.
Dance and Creative Therapy workshops: In addition to my 1-2-1 work, I also offer regular therapeutic dance and art workshops for small groups for the purpose of self-expression, releasing tension/stress/stuck emotions/energy and reconnecting to your natural state of peace, joy and oneness. For more information, please see my website.

A few testimonials from previous clients:
“Thanks to Cranio Sacral therapy, my neck and back problem was completely resolved. The treatment also had such a positive effect on my health and well-being that I continue to have regular treatments to ensure I stay well and to help give my system a boost if I feel run down. Silvie is a very gifted practitioner, who instantly puts you at ease and is extremely professional. I could not recommend her highly enough.” – Tara M
“I had been suffering from shortness of breath on and off for quite a while. I had six sessions with Silvie to begin with, which were then followed up less regularly – and the difference was enormous. There now seems to be no impediment to my breathing. I thoroughly recommend Silvie’s treatment.” Richard, London
“Silvie is an exceptional and gifted therapist who assisted my personal transformation... I would recommend cranio-sacral therapy for all manner of ailments- physical, mental, emotional – and Silvie would be my first choice for her kindness, intuition and empathy.” – Bryony F
“I have had neck pain from a whiplash injury and the cranio-sacral therapy has really helped. I had been rather sceptical but I came away feeling amazed that such a gentle technique had such a powerful effect, and one that was both immediate and long lasting.” – John M
“In the first (reiki) session I reached a level of relaxation that I really don’t ever remember experiencing before...Since then I look forward to my monthly session which for me is an opportunity to completely let go and just let whatever needs to happen, happen. I don’t know what exactly does happen but over this period it feels like I have been slowly releasing some old negative patterns and making room for less fear and more ease and authenticity in my life. It’s such a subtle process but it feels like it’s working at some deep level and reminding me of who I really am and getting me closer to my true nature. Silvie works in a really gentle and caring way, and her calm presence really helps me enter the natural flow of the session.” – Emma D
