Dr. Martine Faure-Alderson
1934 – 2019

Our beloved Teacher, Mentor, Creator of Cranio-Sacral Reflexology and Founder of CSRI Academy of Excellence passed away on 28 April 2019.

We are deeply saddened by her untimely departure.

Martine’s passion for Reflexology and her tireless work to discover more and more avenues into the connection of mental, emotional and physical, the way they interact and how to modify the imbalance and disharmony between the Three Levels of Man drove her to discover the extraordinary power of combining cranial osteopathy and cranio sacral therapy into reflexology.

She continued to develop new courses and protocols; her latest being Reflexology of the Brain, Whiplash, Pregnant women and Baby.  Her latest book on The Brain ‘Le Cerveau’ was published in French in 2018.

Teachers and practitioners of CSR will continue her work and carry her legacy into the future.
