About Carina Collins: CranioSacral Therapy.

As I sit here in my CranioSacral Therapy Clinic in the Elmwood Medical Centre, I realise just how much has happened to bring me to this point over the last 25 years of my work experience.

First, a Bit of Pre-History... 

I originally qualified as a Primary School Teacher. For the next 16 years I enjoyed working with children aged between four and twelve. I now have some of my ex-students returning with their own infants and children for CranioSacral Treatments!

I had my first child, Evan, I was delighted to nurture him as an infant and see him grow stronger and smarter day-by-day. Two years later, Rosaleen arrived. A mini blonde-bombshell! It was amazing to experience such different personalities in two different babies.

A few years later, I woke up one night in severe pain. I was rushed to the hospital where I had an emergency operation. It turned out that I had an ectopic pregnancy and had narrowly avoided bleeding to death. It was only over the next number of years that myself and Mike (my husband) realised the effect such a sad event has upon our lives and the need for the body to heal over time.

I now realise that it is through my own direct experiences with the natural cycles of life - and the complications that may follow – that have lead me to explore different ways of supporting women, men, infants, babies and children through these cycles.

My Formal Qualifications.

When I lived in Woking, Surrey in the UK in 1995 I attended the Guildford College where I received a Certificate in Counselling.

In 1998 I truly started my formal education in Bodywork and healing with training and certification in:

  • Anatomy and Physiology
  • Holistic massage
  • Sports Injury Massage
  • Pregnancy massage
  • Bio-Energy
  • Reiki Master and Teacher
  • And, of course, CranioSacral Therapy (I am an Upledger-qualified CranioSacral Therapist) with a specialisation in Paediatrics.

Back to the Present ...

Even though I now specialise in CranioSacral Therapy, I have found that experiencing all of the above has given me a tremendous “feel” for working with people in a holistic manner and a very good idea of what really works for which condition.

I now practice CranioSacral Therapy in a modern and busy city practice -Elmwood Medical Centre, Frankfield, Douglas, Cork. 

I look forward to meeting you!
