Gerri Aiudi - Registered Therapist (deepening your awareness through craniosacral and massage therapyAbout me

I have been in private practice since 1989 when I completed my massage certificate at Grant MacEwan University. Shortly afterwards I studied reflexology, Reiki, and Trager Psychophysical Integration. I also began teaching through workshops and lectures to share the healing and therapeutic benefit of touch.

I have a full-time practice at my home studio where I specialize in craniosacral therapy. I am a member of The Massage Therapist Association of Alberta.

In the early 1990s I assisted at the Edmonton Sexual Assault Centre and my practice reflected this as I began to use massage to help others heal from past sexual trauma. As my interest in bodymind therapy expanded, I studied other techniques such as St. John's Neuromuscular Therapy, Russian massage, lymph drainage, and visceral manipulation. I also began to teach in the Massage Therapy program at Grant MacEwan University. My focus began to shift to working with whiplash injuries in a wholistic fashion.

In 1994, I began my studies in craniosacral therapy with The Upledger Institute and then became devoted to expanding my knowledge in this field. I have studied CranioSacral Therapy Level I & II, Somatoemotional Release Level I & II, CranioSacral Therapy for Pediatrics, and Advanced CranioSacral Therapy with The Upledger Institute. I am also a teaching assistant with the Institute. In addition, I have studied with The Milne Institute and have advanced training with two osteopaths - Dr. Gideon Seth and Dr. Alain Gehin. Dr. Seth taught me advanced osteopathic techniques. Dr. Gehin, a world authority on cranial manipulation, taught a series of three advanced trainings in cranial manipulation and treatment.

My other studies with The Upledger Institute have included: The Brain Speaks; Cranial Anatomy; Being Present as a Therapeutic Too; Healing from the Core (Grounding and Boundaries); and CranioSacral Therapy and Longevity (Reversal of the Aging Process).

At present, I am focusing on life transitions and have studied CranioSacral Therapy Around Death and Dying with The Upledger Institute as well as birthing and natal experiences. My interest is in helping others navigate inner changes assoicated with losses through divorce, death, illness, or other life style changes.
