Craniosacral therapy with Howard Evans in London and Mallorca
Howard Evans has worked professionally as a body oriented therapist since 1992. He was one of the first practitioners at the Life Centre when it opened in London’s Notting Hill Gate in 1993. He also worked at Triyoga when it first opened in Primrose Hill in 2000.
Howard has studied many approaches to therapy. These include Traditional Chinese Medicine, Integrative Psychotherapy, Core Process Psychotherapy, Traditional Thai Massage, Esalen Massage and Neuromuscular Technique. It is Craniosacral Therapy, however, that informs all his current work. Craniosacral Therapy encapsulates Howard’s therapeutic philosophy of ‘less is more’.
Howard’s approach to Craniosacral Therapy integrates his training as a body oriented psychotherapist with the principles of Craniosacral Biodynamics developed by Franklyn Sills at the Karuna Institute.
Unlike Osteopaths working in the cranial field, Howard does not aim to assess and resolve lesions in cranial bones. Rather, he applies an engaged and diagnostic touch to the body’s organisation of its physical, emotional and psychological experiences in the soft tissues and fluids. This approach to Craniosacral Therapy unfolds like a quiet psychotherapy.
There is a subtle dialogue with the patient’s body, the organising intelligence of the central nervous system and the connective tissue matrix. Hidden and forgotten patterns, formed in response to insult and injury can be gently revisited, questioned and reorganised. The process is deeply satisfying and resourcing. Its aim is a more open, calm and graceful way of being. The work is especially suited to people who are therapeutically ‘all talked out’.
During a session with Howard you will benefit from a quality of touch, attention and presence developed over many years of study, practice and teaching.
Sessions are available in West London at Howard’s studio situated between: Notting Hill Gate, Holland Park and Shepherds Bush. Home visits can also be arranged in West London
Howard can also be consulted in Mallorca.
