Welcome to my web site! My name is Elise Parsons and I'm a qualified Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist (BCST) and Yoga Instructor. The purpose of this site is to give you a little background information about me, my experience, my qualifications, BCST and yoga.
Most of you will have heard of yoga but perhaps Craniosacral Therapy is less familiar. Biodyanamic Craniosacral Therapy is a complementary therapy based on touch rather than manipulation. During the one hour session, you will lie on a comfortable table and my primary physical focus will be your head, neck, back and feet. The wider intention for well-being and healing does however include the whole body. You remain fully clothed during sessions while we gently explore and expand your body's capacity for self-healing.
Whether you treat yourself occasionally or you see me on a regular basis, BCST can create the conditons for health and well-being. The price is £40 per session although I do offer some concessions each week so please ask. Please feel free to contact me to ask questions or book a session. You can read testimonials from some of my clients below.
"Receiving Craniosacral Therapy from Elise is for your body and soul what a beloved pair of slippers is for your feet. Relaxing, healing and very personal. Elise is a rare therapist because she combines a deep understanding of the body with emotional maturity. You may not understand exactly what she does, or even how, but the results will speak for themselves." Phil Dawson, Bath
"I have been having Craniosacral sessions whenever I can with Elise for the last 3 years. She has great sensitivity, understanding, and a real gift for this work. I always feel a deep sense of connection within my own body and feeling of well-being from her treatments. I can highly recommend her as a Biodynamic Craniosacral practitioner to everyone." Justine, Pembrokeshire
"I have worked with Elise over the last 6 months on a long term back problem and my experience has been one of deep healing on many levels. She is open present and 100% there for her client. I recommend her most highly." Sara, Bath
"In the sessions with Elise I have always felt that she gives the time that is required to go deeply into the traumas held in the system and such that I have never felt rushed but rather that I can relax deeply and trust her intuition and skill to do their work. I feel that Elise has great sensitivity with which she is able to connect and work closely with a person in order to bring about a helpful outcome. I would recommend her very highly as a competent and skillful therapist." Kay, Bristol
"A while ago I visited Elise for some Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy. I was recommended to see her by a friend and I have to say I was so impressed with Elise and her Therapy. We all live such busy lives and often do not take the time to look after ourselves. This Year I have decided to be "kinder to me" so will be seeking her out again. I would recommend anyone who needs to chill relax and connect to their inner self to get in touch with Elise." Richard Street, Somerset
