Cranial & Physical Practitioner
Elizabeth A Clayton DO
Elizabeth graduated from the British College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1990 and worked as an osteopath for 29 years, initially in Hertfordshire and London. Whilst in London she worked for two years at the highly-acclaimed Osteopathic Centre for Children in Harley Street and also ran her own clinic in a London Sports Centre for 10 years. In 2001 Elizabeth moved to the West Country when she took over the cranial osteopathic practice at Nine Springs Natural Health Centre on Hendford, Yeovil. In June 2017 Elizabeth stopped working in Yeovil and now works in Axminster at the Axminster Health & Wellbeing Centre, and also on the outskirts of Chardstock, Devon.
Please note that Elizabeth retired from the osteopathic register (GOsC) in February 2019, and is now known as a Cranial & Physical Practitoner, working part-time, but in the same way, using the same skills and ethics as before.
Elizabeth has a special interest in using the very gentle techniques commonly known as 'cranial therapy' or 'cranial-sacral therapy'. These very gentle holds are applied to the whole body, NOT just the head, and are suitable for treating people of any age from newborn to the elderly. Elizabeth loves treating children and babies and in her experience finds that it is extremely helpful to release tension in babies' and children's bodies as young as possible.
Elizabeth is registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and is a member of the International Cranial Association (ICrA).
