Patricia Spence – ITEC, MIPTI, CSS, RYT200

I have always been interested in healing. I was the one in the corner at a party having a serious conversation or giving a foot massage and many years later my children brought their friends home for me to ‘help’.

I began my journey in my 20’s learning and practicing an energy technique to balance and aid healing via the endocrine system. I studied and used the herbs in my local environment and then in the early 1990’s went on to study East/West herbs which I used on my family. I finally bit the bullet and took a massage course and began working as a massage therapist. During this time I heard a lecture on cranial osteopathy and felt electrified. I didn’t want to do the osteopathy bit but did very much want to do the cranial work. A few weeks later I discovered Upledger CranioSacral therapy and that was that.

Over the years I have completed numerous training courses covering the Basics to Advanced, the physical to somatoemotional, paediatrics to visceral manipulation, the immune system to trauma as well as Life Coaching, Reiki and Yoga teacher training and annual CPD (continued professional development).

I have been taking care of my community’s health needs for 20 years now. I have treated adults in their late 90’s to newborns 1 hour old, rugby players to toddlers and children, mental health to falls down the stairs, stress and anxiety to back and neck pain. I am warm, friendly and professional and able to put adults and children at ease. My approach is client-centered and multidisciplinary. If the circumstance is right I explain what I do and encourage questions. I help my clients gain insight into their conditions and healing.

We all react differently to trauma, stress and the loss of healing capacity and we all present our own unique combination of ailments, pains and dysfunctions which often relate to childhood, lifestyles and career choices. I love to work with my clients to find ways in which we can bring health and balance back in to their lives.

My strengths lie in my wide experience as a therapist and my diverse knowledge of various therapies.
