Craniosacral Therapy for your Physical, Mental & Emotional Health
Do you feel like you’re in a constant battle with stress, anxiety or overwhelm…
are you suffering chronic pain or exhaustion…
or are you basically feeling bad and not able to anything about it?
Do you wish you could feel better but can’t find anything that works?
I know how you feel and I can help… Hi, I’m Meegan and I work with people just like you – people, who for whatever reason, just don’t feel right. Maybe you’ve tried mainstream medicine by itself and found it just doesn’t give you what you need. Or maybe you tried counselling, and the pain still didn’t go away. Maybe you’ve even reached the point where you’re starting to feel desperate. No matter what you try, nothing actually works.
Until you just don’t know what to do.
Believe it or not…
…no matter how bad you feel
…however long you’ve been feeling this way
…however many things you’ve tried,
…deep within your body are the answers that you’ve been seeking.
Your body knows how to heal. You just have to access that part of yourself to be able to put your body’s wisdom to work for you.
This is where I come in.
The work I do is called Craniosacral Therapy
Craniosacral therapy is a non-invasive treatment which originated within osteopathy. It works directly with the body’s natural capacity for self repair to treat a wide range of conditions, including anxiety, stress and pain conditions.
But what it really is, beyond the title, is about listening deeply to your body and your whole system and letting your body’s own organizing principle, that healing capacity within you, open the doorway to healing.
Your body knows what it wants to do, it just doesn’t know how to do it. And this is where I can help.
I’m the person that can help you find this healing place within your body and activate the part that knows how to heal…
I’m a Craniosacral Therapist, a Psychosynthesis Counsellor, and a Mindfulness teacher, and I integrate these three modalities in a unique way to help you.
Combining these therapies together leads to a deeper kind of healing. Many clients have experienced significant lessening and even resolution of their symptoms through this approach.
It doesn’t matter what treatment you are currently trying, whether it’s counselling, medication, or natural medicine – if you are not getting the results you want – working with me can help. (Craniosacral therapy is a complementary therapy, it works harmoniously with all other forms of treatment.)
It’s like opening the healing doorway for you.
The mind, body and spirit work together, and they should heal together. During our life things within our mind-body system may become out of balance – this can be caused by a wide range of things including traumas, accidents, illnesses, interruptions to feeling safe in the world, to name a few.
These challenging events don’t just leave memories in your mind, they also leave them in your body. That something left behind can cause an imbalance that leads to chronic stress, anxiety, depression, even pain and illness. You may not even be aware of the thing you experienced that is at the root of your pain. But while you may have no memory of it, your body knows — because your body has memory too.
So what kind of issues can I help with?
Emotional and psychological issues like:
- Emotional overwhelm
- Low self-worth and self-confidence
- Relationship difficulties
- Support in preparation for pregnancy & birth
and physical conditions like:
- Accidents & sports injuries
- Back pain
- Chronic fatigue
- Chronic injuries
- Digestive problems
- Immune conditions
- Low immunity
- Menstrual pain
- Postnatal depression
- Sleep disorders
- Stress related illnesses
- TMJ and jaw disorders
- Visual problems
By listening to the memories, challenges and underlying patterns held within your body’s memory, I can help you to feel better, release pain and transform emotional challenges.
I am a registered Craniosacral Therapist (BCST), qualified Psychosynthesis Counsellor, a teacher of mindfulness and meditation, and over the last 25 years I’ve trained extensively in various forms of physical and spiritual healing. I’m a registered Natural Therapies Practitioner with Natural Health Practitioners of New Zealand, and an approved service provider for Taranaki Primary Connections.
But this isn’t just my training, I’ve also lived this journey.
When I was in my twenties I was extremely sick with Crohn’s disease, which is a type of inflammatory bowel disease, I tried all the traditional treatments and nothing worked.
I knew that the answers had to be there, hidden somewhere within my body. My body had to know what to do. So I set out on a quest to find those answers, and as a result, I’ve been healthy and well for over 15 years.
Today, my mission is to share what I learned with other people who are suffering.
What can you expect from your Craniosacral Therapy session?
During the first session, we’ll discuss the issues and symptoms that you’re hoping to change and heal, as well as a little about your background, your early life and any significant events in your life. I will then follow the energetic threads to find the source of the problem, and from there the best way to approach the work will emerge.
Together, we decide on a useful treatment plan during your first appointment. I may also suggest mindfulness based tools you can use at home to further reduce anxiety symptoms.
During the treatment session the client typically lies or sits on a treatment table fully clothed. I will use a very light touch to “listen” to the body’s intrinsic movements.
I will often begin the session by placing my hands lightly on the client’s feet. From here the subtle movements and patterns of restrictions and ease may be felt. I may then move to other areas of the body, often to the sacrum at the base of the spine or to the shoulders or head. In this work we do not manipulate or adjust bones or tissue.
Throughout the session you may feel a range of sensations such as tingling, buzzing, feelings of hot or cold. Sometimes you may feel small movements or adjustments taking place, or sometimes, you may feel nothing. Often a client will experience a deep sense of calm and relaxation. Any or all of the above is normal and welcomed as part of the healing process.
Depending on your particular needs you may require just one session — for example to alleviate acute physical pain — with optional maintenance sessions afterwards. Or a short series of sessions may be indicated to support healing and well-being. Together, we decide on a useful treatment plan during your first appointment. I may also suggest mindfulness based tools you can use at home to alleviate stress and pain and to support your ongoing health.
So I want you to know — there is life beyond this pain that you’re experiencing. I know you have it within you to feel better. And it’s my mission to help you activate these healing resources within you.
I am here – and I’m ready to help.
What clients say…
“I totally recommend Meegan for Craniosacral Therapy. I felt our sessions were effective, the results for me were measurable almost instantly.” Anon
“Hello Meegan, I wanted to write to let you know the amazing impact you have had on my migraines. As you know I have had such a long long history of headaches and migraines. These come in clusters which can last anything from a few days to a few months. When I came to you at Christmas time I had had a headache for 3 weeks which would spike in to migraine type symptoms every couple of days only held at bay with medication. The session with you was nothing short of a miracle. Firstly I found through the time on the table that my body just relaxed, then it started to shift and change particularly in the area that the headaches come from. After I left I was feeling so much better but not completely, however the next day I woke up headache free for the first time in 3 weeks. I didn’t get another cluster till sometime in March when I came to see you again and I have been headache free since then! It’s a miracle! I’m so grateful, Thank you Thank you” Anon
“Meegan has a gift. A real gift. In just a half hour, she helped me find both inner-calm and confidence. She taught me fabulous new techniques to release, forgive, and let go. I’m blown away and totally wowed.”

a little more about me…
Whether you know it or not, you were born with a natural capacity for health and well-being. Just as your body instinctively knows how to heal a cut, you also have the inner “wisdom software” that tells your system how to release stress, restore calm and how to heal. My work centers on helping you to uncover and engage this powerful “wisdom software” for increased health and well-being on all levels – mind, body & soul.
For the past twenty years I have trained and studied extensively in the field of mind-body therapy and healing. It is my mission to bring this kind of healing into the mainstream, to help more people discover their own “wisdom software” and to know that healing can be as natural and as everyday as breathing.
I am a registered Craniosacral Therapist (BCST) and Psychosynthesis Counsellor, and teacher of Mindfulness. I have practised meditation for 25 years and I have worked with individuals in private practice for over 15 years and regularly facilitate retreats and workshops in New Plymouth.
