CRANIOSACRAL THERAPist - Specialising in trauma, shock, stress, anxiety, tinnitus.
Simon Baker (Registered Craniosacral Therapist)
Working in the music industry as a DJ, music producer and sound engineer, I had been surrounded by loud music for years and as a result I developed tinnitus, which I assumed was just from the continual noise.
After having my ears checked and everything was mostly fine (I’d lost some top end frequencies many people who are surrounded by loud noise lose), a friend of mine recommended Craniosacral Therapy, explaining that it can help with calming the central nervous system which is directly related to your auditory system.
It was quite a life-changing experience for me. Not only did it reduce the ringing in my ears, but I felt like I could breathe again. The tinnitus didn't disappear completely, but it subsided enough for me to feel calmer, more balanced and in control.
After a few treatments, I started feeling profoundly different in other ways. I felt more peaceful, more in-tune and connected with my body and much more relaxed. I hadn’t realised how stressed and anxious my system was - not just from the tinnitus - but from everything in life that I was storing up over the years. It became clear that emotions and physical tensions were triggering this loud ringing in my head.
I continued on this path and learned how to meditate, as well as practicing yoga and mindfulness. I began to see life with more clarity and through this new perspective; I felt so much lighter and clear headed than ever before, I had found the link that was missing.
I wanted to share my knowledge and help others feel better, so began training as a Craniosacral Therapist at The College Of Craniosacral Therapy in London . I can safely say that this has, by far, been the most rewarding and fulfilling experience of my life to-date. I rarely hear the tinnitus anymore.
I work holistically, addressing all symptoms and conditions of the human body, both physical or emotional. My work is quite simply about creating a protected and safe environment in which I help my clients tap into their natural healing processes. Craniosacral therapy is a gentle therapy that gives people the opportunity to relax, find inner peace and restore. Through light touch I look to identify areas of stress or tension to help people walk away feeling rebalanced and in harmony with their mind and body.
I am a member of the Craniosacral Therapy Association and abides by their strict code of ethics.
