Andy is a registered physiotherapist, yoga therapist, breath-work teacher and biodynamic craniosacral therapist specialising in the treatment and management of post traumatic stress.
Based in the Sunshine Coast of Australia he has extensive experience having worked in various settings such as hospitals, yoga schools, neurological care units, military outpatients, university clinics and private practice.
He has studied post graduate manual and adjustment based therapy, traditional Chinese medicine and Japanese acupuncture, trauma release exercise (TRE) and teaches yoga therapy, breath-work, craniosacral therapy and stretch therapy. Andy used to be a teaching faculty member in the physiotherapy school at the University of Otago in New Zealand which enabled him to realise the rewarding nature of facilitating the development of students learning how to assess and treat physical conditions. Yet, he acknowledges that to tutor the development of BCST students, who acknowledge and put emphasis on felt-sense awareness, is awe inspiring.
Andy runs a full time health clinic in the Sunshine Coast of Queensland, Australia where he also teaches yoga therapy classes and workshops for most of the year.
It inspires me to witness the shifts in people when they re-orient their perspective from trying to change this or that, to one which is intimate with the vitality of change itself.
When individuals no longer merely exercise and diet to get healthy, but instead wake to their inherent health enough for exercise and diet to begin to be more of an option than a chore.
For a few decades I have been involved in helping people to re-establish their health, but I first needed to come to terms with what 'health' actually means as a felt-sense reality, rather than the opposite of disease.
I have at times been blown away by the inherent potential individuals have when they too realise the vitality of this felt-sense.
Yet, I have also become very aware how such potential is often buried by life's undigested experiences and encouraged to remain dormant by multitudes of interventions and techniques, which (ironically), were supposed to help reclaim their wellbeing.
As a result I have been motivated to develop a process which helps to access and promote the expression of an individuals health, whilst relinquishing dependency on never ending intervention.
The result is a process I call Cranioga.
Resonance & Resource
The Cranioga process helps with the transformation of patterns which restrict the expression of health within a persons system.
There is an embodied 'knowing' amongst those who access their wider resource and are able to relinquish reliance on mechanical interventions and techniques over time .
