Corinne Gerber - Certified Cranial-Sacral Therapist, RDH (CH)
Biography
"Is man related to something infinite---- that is the central question."
       Carl G. Jung
The works and founders of the "Upledger  Institute" in Cranio-Sacral Therapy developed in the 1970's by Dr. John E. Upledger, D.O., O.M.M, and later on the Barral Institute, by Jean-Pierre Barral D.O. in Visceral Manipulations has intrigued me for many years, and I have the privilege to be studying from these great pioneers since 2011. However, in 1991 I went on studying dental-hygiene in my native country of Switzerland, and in 2007 passed the National Dental-Hygiene Certification from the NDHCB of Canada. The knowledge and work experience I acquired over the years fuelled my desire to explore new avenues in helping to guide people into a more conscious and balanced life style. I also acquired valuable lessons during my volunteer work for mentally and physically-challenged adults and youth during my school years, but also during my professional life.  
  
Since 2008 I have dedicated my studies in Holistic , Osteopathic, and Alternative  Manual Healing Modalities in Memory of my beloved Sister Nadine and Mother Lina.

Hakomi 

Is a Body-Centered Psychotherapy a method developed by Ron Kurtz. The method draws from vast worlds of science, spirituality and psychotherapy and avoids analysis to arise from within (the conscious mind), but allows any changes to occur naturally from the inside (body and the subconscious).
Corinne strongly feels that Hakomi and Craniosacral Therapy blend and complement each other and safely guide Clients to a more profound understanding of themselves.
