I help people find relief....

Release, Relax, Unwind

Art of Healing     CranioSacral Therapy

I help people, exhausted from chronic pain, physical injury, stress or anxiety, to find relief and lasting change.

ARE YOU WORN OUT?
And looking for release from a physical injury that isn't healing because of ongoing stress or anxiety? If you're like most people in this situation you probably feel fatigued because things are just taking too long to resolve. You may even feel burned out, exhausted or hopeless from a sense of being stuck, yet you still have to function each day.
 
You may have tried numerous other modalities such as counselling, acupuncture, kinesiology, physiotherapy, meditation, massage, chiropractic care, and even medications. These may have worked temporarily yet you are are still in pain and discomfort.
If this sounds like you, I really encourage you to sign up on my email list, or connect with me directly, so that you can get to know me, what I'm about, build trust and begin to understand what I may be able to do for you!
 
Please don’t lose hope! Healing really is possible.
My name is Helen Russell. I have been working with people confronting trauma and healing for over 20 years. Over that time, I have learned to implement four fundamental principles for lasting change.  
 
 
 
 
 

Maybe you're wondering, more specifically, who I can help; if so, read on!

IS THIS YOU?

There are so many different types of situations and people that I help. Nobody’s circumstances are exactly the same although you might resonate with one of the following scenarios.

    Some time ago you had a head injury...
    You’ve had some kind of physical injury which isn’t healing....
    You have ongoing conflict and stress...
    You might sense an ongoing, low level of anxiety that peaks sometimes...
    You may have recently experienced a great loss, either of a deeply loved family member or friend, lost a job, a home, or even have had a big move....
    You might be navigating a recent breakup, separation or divorce...
    You are actually doing pretty well in life and you really value being proactive with your health...
 

I have been able to help people of all ages with:

PHYSICAL INJURIES such as:

  • Concussions 

  • Broken bones

  • Punctured lungs

  • Dislocated shoulders

  • Torn muscles

  • Sprained ankles and knees

  • Neck injuries

  • Spinal misalignments

  • Pre and Post surgery support and recovery

  • Rapid pace of life

  • Workplace stress

  • Family life stresses

  • Relationship break up, separation and divorce

  • Grief, including loss of loved ones, losing a job, moving

  • Unexpected change

EMOTIONAL ANXIETY such as:

THE PEOPLE WHO TEND TO DO WELL WITH THIS WORK:

Understand that when we are injured or have gone through events resulting in stress and anxiety, the whole body is affected. The whole system, mentally, emotionally and physically will have changed; therefore, the whole system must be included in the healing.

 

Embrace a deep desire and belief within themselves that they:

  • they are able to correct and heal

  • can be supported in their own process 

  • have hope 

  • connect with optimism

  • believe that healing is ultimately possible, recognizing that everyone has a down day or loses hope from time to time​

IF THIS SOUNDS LIKE YOU...

There is a really good chance I can help.

WHAT IS BCST?

Biodynamic CranioSacral Therapy is.....  “an advance therapy that combines a western scientific understanding of the body with mindfulness skills, a unique type of touch and an appreciation of the body’s ability to heal itself.”

This “touch is incredibly profound, and sets off a deep, physiological reaction in the body”

Ged Sumner – founder of Body Intelligence Training.

BCST is a whole-body, healing modality, with its foundations in Cranial Osteopathy...
I loosely translate BCST as:
 
a life changing, "head to tail", healing power....  

 

 

 

 

 

 

By connecting with the natural rhythms, of the body that have been with us since conception...
BCST is a deep, process-oriented, mind-blowing therapy, which has the potential to...
 

All the modalities you may have tried in the past have the potential to heal.

One of the pieces that is often missing is the understanding of timing.

HOW IT WORKS:

The reason, sometimes, that some therapies don’t have the effect you might expect is because any type of trauma to the body involves the central nervous system (CNS) which can get stuck in survival mode. What can happen is that some therapies can actually re-activate the body’s sense of needing to protect itself and inadvertently increase the stimulus. The CNS then remains stuck in the fight, flight and freeze mode which inhibits healing.

Through helping hundreds of people over 20 years, I’ve observed four fundamental principles for lasting change.

    There is an innate sense of ‘right timing'...
    Deeply understanding what's actually happening...
    The nervous system needs spaciousness to reset to normal rhythms...
    Pain and healing are complicated...

Combine these four fundamental principles and the body naturally comes into a place of healing.
