Craniosacral therapist, healer and doula in Bristol
Hello, my name is Hari Ma, welcome to my website! I have been working as a craniosacral therapist in Bristol since 2009. My interest in healing began several years earlier, during a time of rehabilitation from Lymes disease. I have a keen interest in many different methods of healing, and am also a qualified healer, having trained here in Bristol, as Metatronic healing practitioner, and in Salisbury, at The Starlight Center, as an Alpha Chi consultant. My work is also supported by my previous experience working as a doula.
Craniosacral therapy is a gentle, hands on therapy. It is a practice of bringing deep listening and touch, to a client's body, mind, emotions, and soul. It is a healing practice that is suitable for people of all ages, from early development in the womb, right through to old age.
There are natural subtle rythyms in the body, which support health in the body. These rythyms, and their influence, directing the spinal fluid bathing the brain, and spinal column, and the fluids in the vital organs and whole body, become disorganised when stress and illness creates physical symptoms. Craniosacral therapy addresses these issues, physically, at their roots in the nervous system and also supports emotional healing, and healing in all parts of the body, as a whole.
Each one of us has a whole and perfect intelligence within us, which holds a blueprint of our soul's journey, and also the best way to rekindle and awaken our health and purpose, however that is most appropriate for us as individuals.
I work with clients from all backgrounds, supporting people with physical issues such as auto-immune disease, digestive disorders, pre or post surgery, whiplash, aches and pains, joint problems, asthma, back problems, the list goes on. I support people with emotional stress, and also with the long list of symptoms and adventures of the heart, that can be related to spiritual awakening. I also work with couples, wishing to deepen their relationship and their own awakening. This is fascinating work, as each partner releases old out worn imprints, and integrates more of themselves they can also release blocks and outdated contracts that allow themselves and their partner to align more fully to their power and creative expression, individually and in relating. Having two committed people working with me together creates a lot of energy for things to move! I am passionate about relationships, healthy fulfilling intimacy, respect and autonomy in partnership.
I specialise in working with pregnant women, birth, and babies, in those all important months in the womb, which influence so deeply the life that follows. I am passionate about welcoming new souls, and supporting parents-to-be during pregnancy, and Mum for childbirth. I love working with babies, before and after birth, helping with resolving difficult births, digestive problems, etc, and have also worked as a Doula here in Bristol, which has helped forge a strong foundation with this precious area of life. Working in this way is also a valuable preparation for anyone who wishes to concieve.
I take time to explore my client's emotional wellbeing, and life circumstances, in conversation, before moving to the healing couch. Listening out for what supports and resources each person, witnessing their story, why they are coming, and beginning to build a compassionate bridge of awareness to unresolved energy, past and present, which is often expressing itself as illness, stress, or limitations in the body. My work is also influenced by the shamanic practice of soul retrieval, whereby traumas are seen as events which can cause fragmentation of the soul. The more a client can integrate their own energy through this work, the less room for trouble making energies in the body/mind etc.
Some of the work I do with adults, where relevant, also touches on unresolved issues directly related to forgotten experiences in very early life, in the womb, or birth. Our experience as a baby, often preverbal experiences, and their ripple effects, unacknowledged, can create strong filters and imprints on our daily experiences. For sure, our journey into this world is inherently influencing all of us, and for some, it imbued strength, for others, that strength is something that has to be reclaimed. The support I offer with craniosacral therapy can be particularly helpful where problems or issues feel repetitive, deeply engrained, or the source of them feels illusive.
In the last 3 years I have also trained as a healer, in two different spiritual healing modalities, that have supported a deepening in awareness of what a client may be negotiating in his or her energy field, and physical body, and has increased my ability to facilitate resolution. These tools for relating with the field give me a wider view whilst still being grounded in the deep listening and strong foundation of craniosacral therapy.
I love to support clients to find the silver linings within their healing journey, to discover their gifts, their health, and gain a deeper understanding of their unique path in life.
I work from my home in Eastville, in a quiet location in Bristol, close to Eastville Park, in a lovely and light, peaceful therapy room, which is a much loved safehaven that has witnessed many peoples healing journeys.
Please dont hesitate to call me if you have any questions, Id love to hear from you.
Thank you, Hari Ma
