Enter the stillness

Spela Strukelj Varela,
biodynamic craniosacral therapist (BCST) 

I trained for three years at one of the world’s leading craniosacral schools – CTET in London – studying Living Anatomy for a year before two years’ of specialist training in Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy.


But my real education began long before that, when cranio changed my life.


Back in 2016, I was working as a curator and graphic designer when I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. One of the symptoms for me was double-vision, so my career path suddenly hit a dead end.

I decided to manage my condition holistically, with Iyengar yoga, a disciplined diet, and daily meditation. The symptoms stabilised, but the biggest difference of all came when I was introduced to craniosacral therapy.


It changed everything. Thanks to bi-weekly treatment, my emotional and physical well-being was transformed.


And with it, I’d found my calling. Using my new reserves of energy, I decided to study this subtle, powerful therapy to help others.


While craniosacral therapy can benefit everyone, I discovered that my own experience gave me a vital understanding of people with chronic conditions including autoimmune deficiencies, neurological issues, emotional trauma and PTSD.


In an effort to help more people, I constantly try to expand my skills, including specialist training with mothers, babies and pregnant women.
