Location: Shelagh has a practice in Kaslo, BC.
Shelagh offers craniosacral work, energy healing and fascial work.
Shelagh specializes in body alignment and body awareness.
Pain and limited mobility are often the result of misalignment caused by poor body mechanics, injury, repetitive strain, compensation or patterns of emotional or physical holding in the body. Shelagh offers an intuitive and integrated approach to release patterns and restrictions that cause acute and chronic pain, muscular imbalances, repetitive strain injuries, TMJ syndrome, headaches, neck and shoulder issues, fatigue and anxiety. Shelagh works with the fluidity of the body and muscle memory to support the body to realign that may result in decreased tension and discomfort, improved balance and stability and ease of movement. Shelagh enjoys sharing self-care practices with clients to increase their body awareness and support their own healing.
Shelagh has been in professional practice since 2007 and is a member of Natural Health Practitioners of Canada.

I came into Shelagh’s office with no idea of what to expect or what this healing modality was all about. I just knew that all other forms of medical support had been exhausted. I presented with lower back issues and my pain was so severe that my body was contorted. I had difficulty breathing and moving, with physical symptoms of burning, tingling and throbbing muscles. The medical profession recommendations were daily pain meds and attendance at a pain management group.
Shelagh’s integrative treatment included improving the flow of energy, and releasing patterns in the connective tissue and muscle memory that contributed to my pain. After a 2-hour session, my recovery surpassed my wildest expectations. In my logical mind, I could not make sense of what had transpired. I was pain-free, my body felt lighter, relaxed and free of any muscle stiffness. My body had a buzz to it. Hours later I realized that I felt energized.
I realize my journey from health to debilitating pain did not happen overnight. I have had many sessions with Shelagh. Each treatment builds upon the previous sessions to reduce/eliminate pain, muscle spasms and tightness.
You don’t have to understand the ins and outs, nor believe in Shelagh’s methods of treatment, because the body just responds. It works!
With gratitude, Phyllis White
A week prior to Christmas I slipped on an icy road and landed hard on my back. For lack of a better word I then “bounced” and hit the road again, hitting my head both times. I went to Emergency and, while no bones were broken, I was given instructions for treatment of a minor concussion and was told that it could take up to six weeks for my muscles to relax and the pain to be gone. Five weeks later I was still in excruciating pain. I slept in the living room in a semi-reclining position for those five weeks, couldn’t shoulder check which limited my driving, and had difficulty lifting anything; even a regular frying pan took both hands to distribute the weight and lessen the pain. I saw Shelagh at that point and after one session I was amazed that I was no longer in pain. I also realized that for the previous five weeks I had not been taking proper full breaths so as not to expand my lower rib cage because it hurt too much. After that one treatment I was able to get on with normal activities and sleep in my own bed ! I highly recommend Shelagh’s work.
