The CSTA funded one of its members, Nicola Brough, through her Masters by Research. Nicola was awarded an MPhil for her work being of such high standard.
Nicola's thesis, Perspectives on the effects and mechanisms of craniosacral therapy: A qualitative study of users' views, published in the European Journal of Integrative Medicine, explored 29 participants' experiences with craniosacral therapy. The study included three participants suffering acquired brain injury and a further paper focused on their outcomes: Craniosacral therapy supports those with acquired brain injury.
Nicola’s work has now developed into a PhD which is funded by Warwick University with additional support from the CSTA.
