Robert Harris, RMT, Craniosacral Therapist, Instructor and co-founder of the CTC
Robert Harris has been a hands-on health practitioner and registered massage therapist since 1978. A craniosacral instructor since 1990, he moved away from the Upledger Institute after 8 years to offer his own unique training program that provides students with more confidence and empowerment from day one.
By blending the understandings and techniques of various schools of thought ranging from Upledger to Osteopathy, BioDynamics and more, combined with his years of experience as a CST practitioner and teacher, he is able to offer successful, in-depth training programs.
Robert’s early years of teaching yoga and the knowledge behind his development of self-help products (www.becalm.ca) combined with his patience, table-side sensitivity and clarity provides a unique classroom experience.
Robert’s vast knowledge of the intricacies of the physiological and neurological mechanisms provides a solid ground for learning CST. Robert’s unique ability to awaken the student’s senses to the subtle and energetic realms provides a level of trust, confidence and knowledge with the various experiences witnessed during practice.
Robert provides many sensible additional variations to the traditional techniques taught. He brings a unique progression and clarity to the content and the techniques taught. He enables an empowerment maximized to save students years of study and practice. Students usually witness advanced levels of skills and therapeutic results occurring within their training experience.
Here is what one of his recent students have to say:

Alix McLaughlin, RMT, Craniosacral Therapist, Instructor and co-founder of the CTC
Alix began practicing as an RMT, graduating from Sutherland Chan School of Massage Therapy’s in 1978. After seven years of a successful practice, a personal injury led her to discover CranioSacral Therapy (CST). She was surprised and amazed at the effects of just two CST sessions. The post surgical inflammation and scar tissue decreased at a rate that seemed impossible and yet she experienced it in her own body. It was then that she knew that CST was to become her path.
Alix was fortunate to study directly under Dr. John Upledger, in Florida. In 1989, he invited her to teach CST for the Upledger Institute. Over the next fourteen years Alix taught thousands of health professionals in Canada, the U.S., and abroad. She also contributed to the creation and development of the first Upledger pediatric CST program.
Alix has lectured annually at the Midwifery Education Program at Ryerson University and at Trimesters perinatal and postnatal RMT trainings, as well as presenting at a Breastfeeding Conference and other related medical forums.
Alix feels a responsibility to pass on her knowledge and wisdom that has grown from her thirty-four years of experience as one of Canada’s first and foremost CranioSacral therapists.
“Alix McLaughlin has taught Paediatric Cranial Sacral to our Trimester: Massage Therapy Education classes for over 2 decades.
Her inspired teaching has lead participants to further their knowledge of CST at the Cranial Therapy Centre. Alix inspires, empowers & grows professionals in their knowledge of this incredible skill! She is a gifted instructor & Trimesters is thrilled to include her in our courses!”
