Catherine Henderson, CMT
Catherine received her Diploma in Osteopathy in 1980, from The European School of Osteopathy, UK. After practicing in London, and working at the London Osteopathic Centre for Children, she moved to Berkeley and became a Certified Massage Therapist.
Catherine particularly enjoys working with families. She has studied pre-natal and birth psychology, and lay midwifery, and has attended many births.
She has studied extensively with James Jealous D.O. and has taught in the US and internationally.
Cranial treatment is a gentle, hands-on approach involving the whole body, and cooperating with the body’s own self-healing mechanism. Impacts from birth, falls, accidents, dentistry or surgery may have lasting effects, and these are evaluated and addressed…perhaps years after the original impact.
Infants, children, teens and adults can all benefit from this gentle, relaxing and deep-reaching treatment
