Deep Tissue Massage, Craniosacral Therapy

I am an artist and CranioSacral Therapist living and working in Cape Town South Africa.
The focus of my work is the visual studies of elements and treatment protocols in the “art” of CranioSacral Therapy. One of the elements that I have wished to explore is the question: “Is Therapy Art?” There has been much written and said about art as therapy but little as yet about therapy as art.
I have recently finished writting and illustrating a children's story book titled Jake & Tuffy about an Aids orphan. The e-book is available in Engish, Afrikaans, French and German from the website. The first 12 pages are viewable for free.

Marissa Wolheim, director and trainer of Hospice in the West Krugersdorp said this about the book:

The book encompasses many vital points such as care, compassion, reaching out, hope, the power of love, grief and bereavement, feelings associated with loss, reality issues, survival issues, encouragement to use NGOs in the community, the power and importance of support groups, honesty and the miracles in life ...

Thank you for your welcoming comments. I have been in practice for 2 years and love my work more and more each day. Art and massage - a fascinating connection. I view massage as an art (started out viewing it as a science). I look forward to connecting to many other therapists through this website!

Therapy is art. Very intuitive art. I have found cranial sacral becoming part of my massage through the art of therapy. When that pulse presents itself, an artist will respond with the correct CST. a none artist will ignore the signals emenating from the mind/body/spirit of the the client. Is that good?

your art work is beautiful! How cool to know that I'm not the only artist-massage therapist. I wonder how many massage therapists out there are also artists?

Interpretation of Children's drawings


Many children struggle with learning difficulties and can be disruptive in the classroom. This is not always

an indication of a lack of intelligence or laziness. Ironically these children often work harder and apply more

effort to their school work but struggle with things like auditory processing, retained cranial compressions

from birth…
