About Biodynamic craniosacral therapist Ben Ash

I first experienced craniosacral therapy in 2002 as a practice client for a friend during her training. Something immediately clicked with me and it has been a central part of the way I have looked after myself ever since. When I experienced a health concern in 2013 I was able to experience for myself the depth and resourcefulness of craniosacral therapy, which over a period of sessions allowed for the stressed, fragmented and overwhelmed aspects of myself to have the space and presence to be acknowledged slowly and safely, and resolve at their own pace.
Craniosacral therapy offers my clients the space to meet their unique embodied 'me-ness' in an open minded and non-judgmental environment, where stillness is sensed to underpin and centre the living dynamism that is the natural expression of the forces of health and of Being. I do not specialize in one area of the field, and have experience of working with a variety of presentations including trauma, post-natal mothers and babies, depression, stress and anxiety
I am a dedicated father to my 14-year-old daughter and have spent many delightful hours being with her over the years, including 'slinging' her for extended periods during her infancy and toddling years. She continues to both inspire me and teach me loads about my limits, for which I am grateful!
