What is Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle body therapy working with the Central Nervous System where the practitioner places their hands lightly on the client’s body to feel the fluid movement and rhythmic motions. The therapy is based on the work of Dr. William Sutherland an American Osteopath who developed the therapy in the 1930’s. Through gentle touch and palpation, it is possible to detect restrictions in certain areas of the body which can impact its ability to self-heal.

Improved health and wellbeing

Her gentle touch allowed me to relax immediately and really connect with my body and emotions whilst Allison informed me of what she was doing and why. A beautiful warmth allowed my body to feel at peace and aware of all aspects of my body.
I came to her suffering from stress and high blood pressure and after two treatments, I notice that my nervous system has slowed down, I feel more relaxed and have less tension in my body.
Allison creates and holds a safe and nurturing space where deep healing occurs. She is professional, caring and intuitive. The benefits of the treatment continue to unfold after you leave.
I brought our 4 week old to Allison for 3 Cranio Sacral treatments. Worked a treat for a section baby that had a lot of digestion issues.
Patrick is like a new baby!! I cannot believe it. We came home on Saturday and he slept a good bit. He is definitely more relaxed in himself. He has greatly reduced the gulping at feeds (maybe once a day it may occur) and the agitation at night is as good as gone. Since sat he is sleeping 4-5 hrs at night between bottles as opposed To the 2-3hrs. Patrick is so much more at ease and so much more comfortable.
Allison really helped my little girl free up restrictions in her neck after she was born. This was during covid and I was unable to get appointments so Allison was the only one who helped her. After the sessions her neck started to free up and she eventually got full range of motion, something she definitely didn’t have.

Craniosacral treatments

For babies

When working with infants, I start by taking the health history which includes details from conception, the pregnancy journey and of course the birth story. This gives valuable information and context to the baby's first experience of the world.

For adults

Working with adults is very similar to working with babies and I start by taking the health history. You are fully clothed during the treatment and a typical session will last 1 hour and 15 minutes.


I am Allison

My practice is located in Clarinbridge, South County Galway and I live in County Clare with my family, nestled in the beautiful landscape of the Burren and the Atlantic Ocean. I discovered Craniosacral Therapy over 24 years ago when I brought my first child for treatments. He was experiencing recurring chest issues, skin problems and an unsettled sleep pattern. Despite trying all medical options, the issues persisted without resolve. After just a few sessions of Craniosacral Therapy, I was intrigued and relieved as I observed my son’s symptoms gradually ease and eventually dissipate completely. I began to have regular treatments myself and found the work supported deep healing and transformation around past traumas in my own life.
