How can it help me?

CranioSacral Therapy is the manual application of very gentle pressure to the head, neck and regions along the spine to promote better health by enhancing the circulation of cerebrospinal fluid.

It can be used as a form of preventative healthcare, or as a treatment for a diverse range of acute and chronic conditions, such as migraines, chronic pain, and insomnia.

I have a Bachelor’s degree in nursing from the University of British Columbia.  I have several years of work experience in nursing covering such specialty areas as gastroenterology, plastic surgery, gerontology, ophthalmology, sexual health and family planning.

I am a member in good standing with the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors, and the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors, and I am licensed by the College of Naturopaths of Ontario (CONO).

As a naturopathic doctor, I work with many treatment modalities, some of which you will find described on this site, but have a special interest in clinical nutrition and orthomolecular medicine.
