Carolyn O’Neill initially
began her training as a complementary therapist
with The Shirley Price School of Aromatherapy.
Having established a successful practice in Mallorca,
she was living at the time, she then continued
her training with the Upledger Institute UK. This opened
the door to the fascinating world of Craniosacral
Therapy. She successfully completed all levels of
over a period of 5 years. Her practice in Mallorca
continued to expand where she was also working
in a multidisciplinary clinic in Palma, alongside an
and a Chiropractor. In 1999 she and her German
colleague founded an International Children’s Clinic
in Mallorca offering free cranial treatment to
children and babies.
In 2002 Caro and her Irish
husband and two young
boys decided to move back to her birthplace on
border. Back home, she immediately continued her
work as a CranioSacral Therapist and Remedial Massage
alongside her sister, a Registered Osteopath. The
Kensey Therapy Centre in Launceston is a multidisciplinary
clinic offering Osteopathy, CranioSacral Therapy,
Acupuncture, Homeopathy and Psychotherapy.
In 2009 Caro expanded her practice to include Holsworthy
where she now works three days per week.
As well as running her own practice, Caro teaches
Introductory Workshops to anyone wishing to know more
about CST. Interested parties may be practitioners
of other disciplines such as Physiotherapists, Chiropractors
or other manual therapists. Or those involved in long
term care of the elderly or young children. Workshops
can be tailored to suit different groups and can be
in the form of a one-hour presentation to a full weekend
workshop. Caro regularly consults with midwives, health
visitors, orthodontists and lactation consultants and
is happy to give informal presentations when required.
