Their passion and love for the work motivates them to support their fellow practitioners and to promote Craniosacral Therapy among the public.

Nadine Moses

Chair

Nadine Moses is more than a respected professional in her field. She has herself been healed and empowered by Craniosacral therapy. After many years in corporate South Africa where stress was a daily struggle and fatigue a relentless companion, Nadine’s health took a turn for the worse.  In May 2015, she was diagnosed with a goitre that was 200% bigger than what is considered normal and healthy.  The two options given to her were a lifetime of medication and surgery.  Not content with this limited feedback, Nadine started exploring natural remedies and practices. 

In 2017 she had her first Craniosacral therapy session. This was a momentous and life-reinforcing experience for her.  Astounded by, and then energised by her amazing results, Nadine decided that the field is where she belonged. For Nadine, Craniosacral therapy became a calling, a passion that is now more than a career. Her life has changed immensely and has become a catalyst that sparks great change in others.  Today, Nadine’s sense of purpose comes to life through her personal motto:

Instead of having the belief that Life Happens to me, I started to realise that Life Happens through me. I can choose my responses.

Simone Draai

Vice Chair

As the Vice-Chairperson of the Craniosacral Therapy Association of South Africa, Simone Draai has demonstrated an unwavering dedication to the advancement of Craniosacral Therapy in the country. Based in Ballito just out of Durban, she was born in Germany and has also drawn from her experiences living in Israel.

Simone is a qualified Furniture Designer, Master Carpenter, and since 2010 has honed her skills as a highly respected Craniosacral Therapist. This born traveller continues to explore the many fascinating components of an industry she discovered as part of her own health journey.

She is deeply passionate about creating a community of healing practitioners and raising the status of Craniosacral Therapy as a vital healing art. 

Anita Desai

Secretary

After 15 years of corporate life as an Analytical Chemist and then becoming a mom, Anita Desai sought out a holistic approach to health, which became a priority as she focused on her family’s well-being.

She soon found a path and a passion that would become a life purpose that she is completely dedicated to – Craniosacral Therapy. Anita qualified for her Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy in 2014 (BCST) and she now runs a practice in Johannesburg North. Her professional motto is based on “Embracing the Body Mind and Soul Alignment”.

During the challenges of the unprecedented pandemic that has changed all our lives in unimaginable ways, Anita realised how anxious, isolated, and unpredictable the world would become. She felt the only constant and solace for everyone would be their well-being and faith in God. These values drew her closer to the Craniosacral Association.

She is now, more than ever before, inspired to help support, educate and connect with colleagues and humanity through the principles of Craniosacral Therapy.

Anja Körber

Education Co-ordinator

After playing in various European orchestras for several years, Anja Körber responded to her quest for knowledge and the calling to teach. She immediately changed course and graduated as a primary school and remedial teacher.

Since then, Anja has embarked on a journey of continued learning in the fields of brain development, primary infant reflex and sensory integration, anatomy and Craniosacral Therapy studies. Anja’s passion led to her discovery of the root causes for many presumed incurable conditions. It accelerated her search for holistic healing solutions and empowered her on her path to making a difference in the lives of her children and the lives of all around her.

Now, from her private practice in Somerset West, South Africa, Anja works with all age groups and a variety of health conditions incorporating a potent combination including Craniosacral Therapy, SomatoEmotional Release®, Myofascial Release and oxygen therapy.

Today, she is known for her insights and the impact it has on others. This is brought to life through her motto – “Uplifting the world with the magic touch of Craniosacral Therapy is my passion and my guiding light!”

Drupad Kara

Community Support Co-ordinator

 As a practicing dentist, Craniosacral therapist, and mindfulness teacher, Drupad has guided many on the path to healing and better health. He qualified as a dentist in 2000 and completed Craniosacral therapy in South Africa through the South African Institute of Cranial Studies, and developed his skill set even more by later studying Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy in India through Body Intelligence.

Firmly committed to pushing the boundaries of Craniosacral Therapy forward this avid learner also completed a certificate in mindfulness-based interventions through the University of Stellenbosch. Inspired by the power of knowledge, Drupad continues to enhance and explore new clinical understandings and skills in a field he is deeply passionate about.

Anne Adams

Website and social media

Anne Adams has a passionate desire to support people by empowering them to realise the true power that lies within us all. This is drawn from her BSc with a major in Physiology as well as qualifications as a Craniosacral Therapist with SIACS, TFH Kinesiology, yoga teacher, and a doula in training.

Anne believes that Craniosacral therapy is a path to healing – a way to powerfully access the body’s ability for self-repair. She believes it’s always about the nervous system – the protector of our mind, body and soul.

Ten years ago, Anne took on the role of secretary, treasurer, and social media liaison within the Craniosacral Therapy Association when she was working half-day in her then-current job, knowing that she could add value to the association.

Anne moved to New Zealand in 2019, and while she had to release herself from her roles with the association, she remains firmly involved from another country – that is now connected to South Africa through a collective belief in the power of Craniosacral therapy and the healing it offers.

The Craniosacral Therapy Association of South Africa (CSTA SA) is a non-profit organisation who serves the public, and its members across South Africa, 

The Association also supports members in Botswana, Mauritius, Morocco, and  New Zealand, and welcome new members from across the continent.
