Story

Over the next few months I am taking part in 4 tough running challenges to raise funds for this fantastic local charity, Source Therapy Foundation. I am running The Two Breweries Hill Race (18 miles with 5000 feet of ascent), 401 Marathon, Northumberland Marathon and finishing off with a gruelling 24 hour ultra run! Any donation would be appreciated.

The charities' initial focus will be treating Autistic children with Craniosacral Therapy (CST). At present much of the focus with Autism and Autism Spectrum Disorders is on finding a cause and a cure. Dr John Upledger www.upledger.co.uk found neither however whilst researching Upledger Craniosacral Therapy showed that regular treatment of CST has a positive effect on the behavioural and medical challenges of Autism.

There is currently limited therapy or treatment available to Autistic children in West Lothian. We know of a therapy that can help treat and manage Autistic Spectrum Disorders. This treatment is currently only available through private therapy which limits both its accessibility and availability. We want to create more awareness of this therapy and make it much more accessible and available to Autistic children and their families in West Lothian.

This is a long term and ongoing project with lots of scope for development and expansion. We hope to be implementing the "TATE" (Treating Autism with Therapeutic Energy) project in West Lothian over the next 2
