My name is Shirley Hiscock.
I am a Registered craniosacral therapist (CSTA) (EMR), as well as a Qigong (Chi Kung) teacher.
I have lived in the Basel area since 2009, when I moved from my UK-based small practice (homeopathy & Craniosacral Therapy).
I like to help people, primarily through the use of craniosacral therapy; a light-touch bodywork that redresses imbalances in one’s nervous system. See a short video here: Me explaining what I do
I am an ardent learner of Qigong and qualified as a teacher some years ago. I teach “Out & About Qi Gong” in Basel and surrounding areas, offer workshops, small group classes or individual classes to all comers. In good weather this is based in different parks and open spaces.
I first came to homeopathy during my second pregnancy in 1998, when I suffered a chronic illness that conventional medicine could not help. The results kept me out of hospital, allowed me to have the home birth I wanted and inspired me to train and qualify as a Licensed Practitioner at the College of Practical Homeopathy, London. I developed my practise into the field of craniosacral therapy after training in Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy at the Karuna Institute in Devon, UK, from where I qualified in 2009. I now work solely as a Craniosacral Therapist, with specialisms in trauma, pre- and perinatal, stress & anxiety disorders and the social well-being of an expat community.
