Annie came to the holistic health field via an unlikely route… she started out as a Biologist and then a Lawyer, before starting a family and deciding that she wanted a gentler and more fundamentally fulfilling career. A stubborn rugby injury that didn’t improve with extensive physiotherapy led her to discover the wonders of craniosacral therapy and begin training in the modality in 2009. She now runs a clinical practice and mentors new therapists.
Andy Pike is a registered physiotherapist, yoga therapist, and Senior Tutor for Body Intelligence Trainings. In this episode he discusses the subtle ways in which craniosacral practitioners interfere with the full expression of health in a clinical setting. Andy offers post-graduate classes that elaborate on the themes presented in this interview. He is based out of Queensland, Australia.
