Jason Jackson

Jason first studied Crainiosacral in 1998 with Joseph Marzal (the Pacific Somatic Institute). Joseph Marzal's work with Shock and Trauma was a great influence and also a big reason for Jason moving into the Biodynamic Crainosacral style of treatment, it helped with questions he had around more mechanical approaches to the work. Jason has been working in the health industry for almost 20 years. He is currently the owner director of a busy clinic in Auckland. Jason has a Diploma in Biodynamic Crainosacral Therapy from Resonance Training and a Diploma in Therapeutic Massage and Craniosacral Therapy at Wellpark College. Jason works with Mothers and baby's and has an interest in how embryonic forces of formation express in Crainosacral Therapy. He has an Advanced Diploma in BCST. He's the father of three young boys.
