Marina Collard: Practitioner of the week


Hi Marina, how are you this week, what do you do at Trinity Laban Health?

I’m well thank you. I am a Craniosacral Therapist.

Tell us about your background? Have you always been a Craniosacral Therapist? How did you get into it?

No I haven’t, I was a contemporary dancer for 20 years; I then became a dance teacher for Contemporary. I discovered Craniosacral while I was a dancer and had many treatments. The treatments really helped me and were very effective when I was a dancer. I now balance my teaching work and my Craniosacral practice.

What are the three main benefits of the treatment?

  • Craniosacral integrates the body as a whole and increases vitality as well as addressing specific problems.
  • Can slow the nervous system down to help anxiety, stress and emotional trauma.
  • Can produce an overall sense of wellbeing.

There is a mixture of clients who visit Trinity Laban Health, including dance students. It is a very nice environment to work in and the clinic is open to anyone which I love.

Finally… tell us something interesting about yourself?

I went to Lisbon recently and visited the Gulbenkian Museum.  It was stunning seeing a video of the volcanic vibrations on the Galapagos Islands. I also recently performed in a contemporary piece entitled The Modulated Body at an art gallery. I performed this between three paintings by Francis Bacon and Rodin sculptures. The theme of the piece was based around Rodin’s sculpture Iris
