Howard has been my go-to ‘cranio guy’ for over 20 years. From sheer physical (‘incurable’ repetitive strain injury – gone!) to purely emotional states (overwhelming grief and stress after separation), Howard’s work has played a key part in keeping me well. I have sent many friends and, and, as a homeopath, many patients to Howard over the years: wherever the gentle directness of the cranio touch seems indicated (or where someone prefers not to talk about problems). Cranio-sacral therapy is a wordless route to deep healing both physical and emotional, and Howard is a profoundly sensitive, deeply experienced practitioner. Warmly recommended!

It felt like a huge shift and release occurred and I connected with the rhythm and energy of the spine in a totally new way. I did experience quite an emotional release right after the session and had to sit in the car for a while and just be with it but subsequently I’ve been feeling so much more relaxed, more centred and also much more aware of the spine and it’s energy…what an incredible art craniosacral is – thank you so much for dialoguing so gently with my body to allow the process to happen, your presence and energy allowed me to relax and let go very deeply.

I have known Howard for 20 years. We both studied for our MA at the University of Westminister. Howard’s passion and love for the healing arts was strong then. I believe it has carried him through the years to become the master that he is today. He is a truly gifted body worker, listener and agent of healing. With gentleness, love and presence he creates a crucible of change. He is a true channel for healing to happen.
He truly understands that the body has its own innate ability and wisdom and he provides the sacred space for that to come through.

I am a Danish yoga teacher who has arranged yoga vacations and meditation retreats for the last 8 years. It has become a tradition to combine the intense program of 4 hours daily practice with healing and craniosacral therapy. Though i have been fortunate to meet several healers and bodyworkers on my journey, nothing can be compared to my almost sacred experience with the healing hands of Howard Evans. Howard is without doubt the most genuine and gifted healer i have come across, ever! I can give my very best recommendation and can only look forward to be back for more…

Hi…….I have been meaning to write to you for a long time….and here I am….You made me cry…..Not the same day…but some days later…and when I say cry…..I really mean CRY……My son came down here a few days after I was in (location deleted)….and he said that I was like a balloon …full of grief…..
So suddenly the balloon burst…..and I cried for two days…or more…After that I slowly got back to normal….I have got all my hair back….my stomach is getting better….and there is no more anxiety….I do not go around grieving my dead friends anymore…I have accepted that they are not here…but gone for ever…
So thank you for helping me….I believe the old Chinese were right about grief ….as you told me….My children and grandchildren have all been here on holyday….and we had a wonderful time…And I feel fine in every way….I now know where to go for help if there should be another problem in my life!

I have been meaning to let you know how my session with you stays with me. Really most profound. Thank you. This seems to have come along when I am utterly ready to meet it. I feel supported by some profound echo-sense of myself, a fundamentally true sensation and, all the while, conducted by another vast energy. Taut with expectation, resonant with presence. This is important for many things going on in my life just now and, hey, it’s a lovely way to be!
From a patient after the first craniosacral treatment – December 2007
I remember deeply relaxing as Howard gently and softly cupped my sacral bones with one hand and my abdomen with the other. Shortly after that I observed my rib cage softly opening so that there was no barrier between ‘me’,and my sense of the universe beyond my physical body, ie my insides / essence / soul was exposed. Then, from a place deep within myself, I was at one with the universe and had a Profound KNOWING that “I” am not in the least particle separate from the universal energy or universal consciousness . That ”I'”, like everything else in the universe is not only ‘connected to’ but is inseparably part of’ the universe. We are ‘the isness’ or ‘the void’ or whatever other name somebody might use. I was without a body, be that physical, emotional or mental during that particular experience and though “I” was there because I was able to observe, I was nevertheless not separate. Which I realise is a misnomer but I do not have the way with words to describe it better.
This belief was not new to me and I’d had similar experiences before but the experience with Howard was particularly and deeply insightful and affirming. It was with utmost difficulty that I returned from that “place” of everything and no thing, where there is ‘no matter’ as I was in blissful harmony where everything truly is, perfect. I know that is where I shall go when my physical body dies, consequently, I have no fear of death (though I don’t much care for the journey that takes me there!)
