About Natalie  (BSc Physio, CST, cert Rehab Pilates, MNZSP, MNSP)

I began my health professional career as a physiotherapist - graduating with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy from the University of Cape Town, South Africa in 1999. 


My interest in Craniosacral Therapy began after receiving it as a young, newly graduated physiotherapist. I took my first course in 2002 and was hooked from the start...and continue to be in awe of the benefits of this respectful and compassionate whole-person approach to health and wellbeing. 

I am a Diplomat Certified Upledger CranioSacral Therapist and I am committed to  developing my skills as a practitioner through ongoing training and mentoring.

 In addition to Physiotherapy and CranioSacral Therapy -  I have completed postgraduate training in a variety of manual and exercise therapy approaches - certifying as a Rehabilitation Pilates instructor in 2007.

My interest in Chronic Pain and a MindBody approach to health care began as a fourth year physiotherapy student, with my own journey of addressing headaches and ongoing back pain. My interest developed into a passion as I witnessed the profound benefits of taking a whole person approach to working with people struggling with pain and stress. 

In addition to consulting from my private practice in Glendowie – I offer talks on understanding Pain in a variety of community settings,  and assist on Upledger CranioSacral Therapy courses where I can.

Prior to my current role I worked in a variety of practices (public and private) both locally and internationally - with a strong focus on chronic pain, stress management and recovery from trauma.  

I care deeply about helping people experience more ease, joy and presence in their lives.
