Our sessions together will be an opportunity for release and reintegration. By arriving just as you are, it will be a time to honour your body as the brilliant vessel it is and to explore the areas of your being that may be yearning for a little bit of extra love!
Treatments include intuitively and intentionally addressing your individual needs and treatment goals. I tend to incorporate a combination of beneficial modalities such as myofascial release, pressure point therapy, craniosacral therapy, breathing techniques, therapeutic stretching and movement, all deliciously blended together with the aim to release soft tissue restrictions and aid in balancing the physical, mental, emotional and subtle energetic bodies.
what is craniosacral?
- learning diverseabilities (ADHD, ADD, etc.)
- chronic fatigue
- emotional difficulties
- post-traumatic stress disorder
- immune deficiencies
- practicing receiving touch
An attempt to articulate this modality into a somewhat simple form: Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, non-invasive technique, utilizing subtle palpation and deep listening to examine the movement of the cranial bones, membranes and continual fluctuation of cerebrospinal fluid within the cranium and spinal column. Through exploring the inherent rhythm (motility & mobility) of these structures we can assess possible dysfunction and dis-ease in the body and how the whole organism is relating. We can gain insight into various lines of tension and where the body may benefit from more spaciousness or a subtle shift in it's rhythmic expression in order to return to innate balance.
To me, craniosacral is the harmonization of science and magic, instinct and intuition, somatics and soul.
In addition to the cranial bones and their fascial relations, the primary system we are connecting with is the central nervous system (think of massage for your brain...) In relieving tension or pressure throughout this system we intend to support the body on its journey of self-healing and remembrance to integrate a sense of harmony and well-being and to enhance its innate and most optimal functioning. Addressing these deeper structures of the 'Craniosacral System' allows for improvement in seemingly more superficial or muscular complaints. CST has been shown to be especially useful for the following, to name a few:
- post-whiplash associated disorder
- migraine + tension headaches
- sinus conditions
- chronic pain patterns
- tinnitus + vertigo dizziness
- integrating a deep connection to your body
CST is a method that is utilized to view the body in a wholistic and visionary way, to approach each body as a masterpiece of intricate mechanisms and systems all expressing their radiance in harmony with one another to carry out the body's inherent purpose.
I’ve been so fortunate to have met Caitlyn just before a major life transition. Caitlyn is an incredible RMT with the skills and intuition to support deep and complex pain and injury. She is able to therapeutically reach into my muscles in ways that feel like years of compounded damage have gained the necessary attention and awareness to activate healing.
Caitlyn has helped me enormously in not only her attentive and skillful style of therapeutic massage but also by providing Yogic stretches and strengthening exercises at the end of each session. She is always mindfully checking in during each session and I am so grateful she is opening more availability into her schedule! Caitlyn really cares and I always feel such a sense of well-being and positivity within her presence.
