Therapist releases a CD to foster peaceful meditation

A Bridgetown-based therapist has released a CD of guided meditations based on her craniosacral therapy practice.

Marguerite Aberle will formally launch “Meditations with Marguerite” on February 5 at the Bridgetown Pottery Restaurant, following its November release.

Craniosacral therapy, which involves gently touching the head and spine to aid relaxation and reduce stress, has not found favour with traditional medicine.

Ms Aberle retrained in the alternative therapy after finding it relieved back pain she developed over a 35-year nursing career.

“It’s based on whole-of-spine, it’s the least manipulative form of spinal care, and that’s where I started,” she said.

“As a nurse, I had a ‘nursing back’ and I no longer have any issues.

“For years I’d had my back manipulated and it never worked.”

After reading an article about the technique, she tracked down a craniosacral therapist in Perth and says she began to improve after only a few weeks treatment.

Her CD is designed for young and old and was produced for clients who need repeat sessions or who now live elsewhere and want to continue treatment.

She has already had good feedback from SolarisCare, which offers complementary therapy for cancer sufferers at centres around the South West.

“Through the craniosacral work I take your body into the stillest place I can and that enables the body in a sense to unwind, to let go, to find a better space to be.

“We need to find that still place in these busy times and times of anxiety and chaos.”
