About Me

Hello, I’m Vicki Sampieri, a passionate Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist with years of experience in this transformative field. My journey began more than two decades ago when I discovered the profound benefits of craniosacral therapy in sustaining health and wellbeing amid the challenges of a bustling life as a teacher, Head of Department, and Housemistress in a state-run boarding school.

My Journey

My encounter with craniosacral therapy ignited a passion within me to delve deeper into this therapeutic practice. In July 2012, I proudly earned my certification as a Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist, undergoing rigorous training under the guidance of some of the UK’s leading practitioners. Today, it remains an integral part of not only my life but also that of my family; my husband and children are enthusiasts who have experienced the transformative power of this holistic approach.

Collaboration and Training

In addition to my private practice, I have the privilege of assisting Tracy Evans and Jo Coole at Circle Cranio with their 2022 cohort for their 2-year practitioner training course. This immersive program is supported by Katherine Ukleja, a globally recognized figure for her extensive work within the field of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy.

Approach and Philosophy

I firmly believe in the intelligence of the body and its remarkable capacity to heal itself. My work focuses on unlocking “trauma” and facilitating the body’s innate ability to promote health. It is immensely rewarding to witness the positive changes and restored balance that clients experience through Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy.

Qualifications and Commitment

As a qualified teacher with an enhanced DBS and certified First Aider, I bring a wealth of knowledge and commitment to my practice. My dedication to maintaining the highest standards is reflected in my membership with the Craniosacral Therapy Association (CSTA), where I adhere to their Code of Ethics and membership requirements.

Is Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy Right for You?

Who is it For?

Whether you are experiencing acute physical problems like headaches or bad backs, dealing with long-standing physical and emotional challenges, or seeking ongoing support in your busy life, Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (CST) may be the solution you’ve been looking for. This non-invasive and gentle therapy is suitable for everyone, from newborns to the elderly.

What to Expect

During a session, your practitioner will take a detailed case history and attentively listen to the reasons for your visit. Typically lasting about an hour, with approximately 50 minutes of hands-on work, the session is designed to cater to your unique needs. You remain fully clothed and can choose to lie face up, on your side, or be seated according to your comfort. The practitioner will make light contact with your head, the base of your spine, and other areas, engaging in full verbal negotiation throughout the process. This encourages your body to relax and make the changes it needs.

Holistic Approach

Because the body functions as a whole, the practitioner may focus on areas beyond where your symptoms occur. This holistic approach ensures that the root causes of issues are addressed, promoting overall balance and wellbeing.

After the Session

After a session, some people may experience a short period of adjustment as part of the healing process. It’s not uncommon for individuals to report relief after just one or two sessions. However, for long-standing problems, additional sessions may be recommended to support your healing journey effectively.

Vicki is a very professional therapist. Her work is gentle yet powerful. I felt so relaxed whilst having the treatment, it was a real treat and well worth the money. I have seen a number of therapists working in this field and Vicki is without a doubt one of the best! I can highly recommend her. BC

After having had the chance to experience Vicki’s therapy a couple of times now, I would highly recommend her gentle, wise and experienced practice. She held a space so unobtrusively that my body felt safe to work through what it needed to and she seemed to work magic. Very grateful VB
