MEET KAILI

Hi, I'm Kaili!

I am a certified Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy Practitioner (BCST), teacher of Somatic Yoga & movement, and certified facilitator of Open Floor Therapeutic Dance practice.

I am passionate about all forms of somatic therapy, nervous system healing and the creative healing arts in relation to the natural world.

I'm a water loving creature and spend as much time as possible in or beside the ocean. I find peace and healing in a myriad of ways by relating to living, fluid, bodies of water, and am inspired by their capacity to resonate a quality of inherent wholeness back to us.

My wish is for everyone to experience the profound healing benefits of Craniosacral Therapy and a regulated nervous system. To experience a deep felt sense of relaxation, peace, safety, embodiment, compassionate care, and an increased capacity towards resiliency and a healthy life are some of the delightlful benefits of the work.

Craniosacral therapy teaches us that when we create the optimal environment and conditions for healing, the innate intelligence of the body and life force energy will do the rest.

As uncomfortable as mental and physical health challenges can be, I have learned the hard way, that we are blessed when our body speaks to us -through signs and symptoms - if we can learn to listen with awareness and compassion, our pain and suffering can become a portal to more freedom, to deeper intimicy with ourselves, and our lives.

I have the utmost trust and respect in the human spirit’s ability to heal and move towards possibility and growth. Inherent forces of dynamic health and well-being can flourish when we have enough safety, support, space, stillness and permission to simply be ourselves and just be.

I am drawn to this work through witnessing powerful transformation in myself and others. These practices have been instrumental in supporting my own difficult healing journey towards health and wholeness.

I enjoy respectfully collaborating with my clients with curiosity, loving presence, and radical acceptance.

"There is something wonderfully bold and liberating about saying Yes to our entire imperfect and messy life. With even a glimmer of that possibility joy rushes in."

BIODYNAMIC CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY

BIODYNAMIC CRANIOSACRAL SOMATIC MOVEMENT & YOGA

The natural healing force within each of us is the greatest force in getting well.~ Hippocrates

Biodynamic Craniosacral therapy (BCST) is a gentle hands-on treatment for improving the health of the whole body, with a focus on the nervous system. The client remains fully clothed and the touch is light and still. BCST helps to balance and restore proper function in the body, while releasing the effects of stress, tension, injury and trauma. As blockages and restrictions resolve, this opens up the body's reserves of energy and capacity for repair.

Essentially Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a practice that helps in creating the most optimal environment to support the intelligence of the body to heal itself. Craniosacral helps by bringing your body/nervous system out of the sympathetic fight-flight or freeze response, into a healthy parasympathetic state of rest and digest, that is imperative to healing. Only your body knows its capacity and direction for healing. It is the practitioners job to awaken your body’s healing potential while your body directs towards its priorities for healing.

The space holds the information ~Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen

Craniosacral therapy aims to treat each individual with a holistic approach, so a very wide range of situations may benefit from treatment, including some of the following:

Stress and tension-related disorders

Emotional/physical stress or trauma

Adrenal fatigue

Autoimmune disease

Digestive Issues

Headaches/Migraines

Acute and chronic pain conditions

TMJ issues (jaw tightness, pain)

Insomnia

Depression/Anxiety

Highly sensitive People (HSP's) and empath overload and depletion

Addiction issues

Pregnancy (pre and post natal)

Birth trauma

Almost anyone can benefit from Craniosacral, as it helps to balance the Central Nervous System. BCST can assist any individual who wishes to address her/his concern from this core place with holistic benefits. This work complements other healing practices as well as medical treatment.

BCST is particularly helpful in releasing trauma patterns held in the body as pain, discomfort and stress. In our fast paced world we are becoming increasingly more disconnected from our bodies. BCST aims to gently guide you back into healthy relationship with your body, towards a sense of wholeness which at its root, is synonymous with optimal health.

Trauma can be anything that's too much, too soon, or too fast for our nervous system to handle. Craniosacral therapy offers a safe space for any held (survival) stress or trauma trapped in the system to emerge and resolve smoothly, decreasing the associated symptoms.

Physical trauma and emotional stress can cause one’s tissue to contract. Sometimes this tissue stays contracted. Over the years these traumas and stressors can build up, giving rise to problems on many different levels.

When the body starts to feel like a burden it is usually a good indication there is holding of unprocessed or suppressed emotions, stress or trauma.

As blockages and restrictions resolve this opens up the bodies reserves of energy and capacity for repair. This new flow and space helps to improve overall immune function, and supports the musculoskeletal system and organs to return to optimal balance.

Settle into the here and now.
Reach down into the center where the world is not spinning and drink this holy peace.
Feel relief flood into every cell. Nothing to do.
Nothing to be but what you already are.
Nothing to receive but what flows effortlessly from the mystery into form.
Nothing to run from or toward. Just this breath, awareness knowing itself as embodiment.
Just this breath, awareness waking up to truth.
~Dana Faulds
