Other Practitioners at TAMM

Emma Loftus – Biodynamic Craniosacral Practitioner

Emma was introduced to Biodynamic Craniosacral therapy in 2013 and subsequently travelled to London to complete her studies with the Craniosacral Trust.

Certificate in Living Anatomy (Craniosacral Trust)

Diploma; Foundation in Craniosacral Biodynamics (Craniosacral Trust)

Emma found this subtle therapy to have far reaching effects on clients, with many reporting not just a relief of tension from an area but also a deep sense of relaxation, and of awareness.

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy has been known to help alleviate the following;

Headaches / Migraines;
Stress / Anxiety;
Problems sleeping / Disrupted sleep;
Low energy;
Digestive issues;
Tinnitus;
Tension in the body (back, lower back, sacrum, shoulders, neck, legs, arms etc).
TMJ pain (Jaw pain, facial pain);
This therapy can also provide resourcing support to someone who may be living with chronic pain; degenerative or terminal illness.

The study of Embryology was another factor that drew Emma to the Biodynamic work, to learn to work from the blueprint level of our beginnings and to observe the organising forces that created us, which remain present throughout life. This study is ongoing and fascinating, and Emma continues to update her knowledge through advanced courses and lectures with leaders in the field of Embryology and Biodynamic Craniosacral therapy:

The Embryo within us; Dr Jaap Van Der Wal

Heart Ignition and the Midline; Dr Michael Shea

Professor Brian Freeman Embryology Series: The Musculoskeletal System

Prior to her training in Biodynamic Craniosacral therapy, Emma has been an Equine Craniosacral Practitioner since 2011, and currently has a busy practice servicing suburban and rural Victoria. She has found that the inherent presence and stillness that the Horse naturally embodies has enriched her Biodynamic practice with people.
