Craniosacral + Somatoemotional Healing

What is Craniosacral + Somatoemotional Release?

Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle healing technique for infants, children, and adults. During my sessions in North Vancouver, I compliment with other healing modalities; including yoga, breathwork (pranayama), meditative practices, sound, and essential oils (if you wish) to create a relaxing experience and to provide you with tools you can take with you. This light touch healing addresses the body holistically – integrating the physical, emotional and spiritual. I focus on the Craniosacral therapy flow, fascial patterns, holdings, misalignments, the nervous system, the organs + meridians. We work together through this symbiotic practice, as I hold space for your body to release and re-align, with intuitive insights often surfacing.

Often we will go back to birth and early years experiences, as this is where our core beliefs and constructs of the world originate. Impingements in nerves and misalignments at birth are common, and can leave lasting impacts on our physical and then emotional bodies. Through this work we can release patterns that show up mentally, emotionally, and physically that may no longer be serving our potential. This is one reason working with new (or new again) parents and young ones is so beneficial, as we set the stage for life to thrive. 

There are 12 cranial nerves within our body, affecting our sensory organs (eyes, ears, mouth etc) with the 10th, our Vagus Nerve, linking our brain to our internal organs (heart, lungs, stomach etc). All these organs work together to tell us about our experiences and how to respond. In trauma situations (emotions, inescapable and/ or inability to communicate in the moment), the experience become stored in the body, to be processed when we feel safe again, or forgotten until we are triggered often much later in life. This trauma or chronic trauma (stress) presents as chronic or acute conditions. Somatoemotional release is an intuitive practice, whereby the practitioner guides the client into the body to help physically and or verbally release holding patterns, often showing up as limiting beliefs and chronic health concerns. 

What others are saying:

“I really am so grateful for your work and spending the time with me this evening. I’m feeling so good. And your insights are spot on. Really really helps me to clarify so much that I am working on, within myself and definitely solidifies all the work I have been doing, is on the right track. I really appreciate all you shared and it absolutely makes so much sense to me. Thank you thank you thank you!”

~ Suzanne, Foot Guru Reflexology

“I have had chronic headaches and migraines for years and after my first session with Katie I noticed a huge change in the way I felt. In the weeks after, I had fewer headaches and was able to sleep better than I had in a long time (no restless legs). Katie was also able to give me some suggestions to help me relax, which have been great. She is wonderful and understanding and I definitely recommend giving it a try!”
