"Kaili is a gifted practitioner representing this healing art." Dr. Patrick Watson ~ Ocean Chiropractic
Hi, I'm Kaili!I am a Certified Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy Practitioner (BCST) with a trauma and somatic therapy informed approach. I am also a certified facilitator of Open Floor Therapeutic Dance practice and offer workshops that combine embodied movement and somatic awareness with nature.My passion and awe for the extraordinary practice of Craniosacral Therapy (BCST) is ever expanding as I continue to witness the profound healing benefits and outcomes unfold.I discovered Craniosacral Therapy on my own nervous system healing journey after a period of stress, burnout, loss and grief. I experienced the uncomfortable symptoms of chronic pain, a dysregulated nervous system with anxiety/depression, a compromised immune system, and digestive issues.Regular Craniosacral Therapy sessions, a lot of time spent in nature, and slowing way down to feel and be were all essential components of helping me heal my relationship to my self and my nervous system.I have 20 years experience working in the field of holistic health and wellness and feel honoured and grateful to compassionately support others in finding relief from challenging symptoms and recconecting to their inherent health and bodies wisdom. Along with increased nervous system regulation, finding a felt sense of safety, more capacity to face life's ups and downs, and overall resilience.
I am a water, rhythm and stillness loving creature and spend as much time as possible in or beside bodies of water. My great joys are the expressive and healing arts practices, and being in deep conversation with nature.It is my experience that nature resonates a quality of inherent wholeness and interconnection back to us, I believe that Craniosacral Therapy has the same affect.I place a strong importance on creating a safe, kind, and compassionate container for our work together. I am drawn to this work through witnessing powerful transformation in both myself and others and have the utmost trust and respect in the human spirit’s ability to heal and move towards possibility and growth.
"I had amazing results from my Crainosacral session with Kaili. I was suffering from neck pain for several months. After a session with Kaili, who I found to be very calming and peaceful as well as sensitive, I experienced much more mobility in my neck’s range of motion with no pain. I am so grateful and pleased. I would highly recommend a session with her." ~ Kate Dixon, Nurse Practitioner

Peace is this moment without thinking that it should be some other way, that you should feel some other thing, that your life should unfold according to your plans." ~Dorothy Hunt
BIODYNAMIC CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY
Craniosacral therapy supports regulation of the autonomic nervous system, which underlies every aspect of our physical, emotional, and psychological functioning.
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy can help you if you are or if you have:Experiencing stress and anxiety
Unresolved trauma from birth, accidents, stress of life
Bodily tension and pain
Structural and postural imbalances
Experiencing emotional overwhelm
Going through major life transitions (moving, separating, becoming a parent, grieving etc.)
.How you might benefit from a Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy Session:Increase energy and vitality
Relief of stress and anxiety
Release body tension
Quiet the mind
Greater health and well-being
Realignment of structure (without manipulation from outside; instead, shifts may occur from the inherent wisdom within)
Greater hormonal balance
Resolution of trauma, birth patters, accidents or injuries – easily and gently
Feeling more connected to your Source
Depending on what is presenting, Kaili's practice may incorporate both Craniosacral therapy and Transforming Touch therapy if desired or needed. Both therapies help by supporting the systems and organs of the body that are most affected by trauma and stress. These therapies also support emotional regulation and bring the nervous system out of a stuck, fight-flight or freeze response, into a healthy balanced state; that is imperative to healing. Each session improves the body and nervous systems ability to function by allowing it to destress and relax significantly so that you can feel better and move through your day with more ease and resilience.It is important to note that while a single session can have noticeable effects, more commonly it takes multiple sessions to achieve the results you are seeking. To start I recommend my discounted 3 package session, with each session booked about 10 days to 2 weeks apart.
"I loved, loved, loved my session with Kaili. I have told so many people about it since. But specifically regarding myself, I have slept ever since seeing her! I am so grateful for what she did. My session helped tremendously." Paula Purcell ~Registered Clinical Counsellor
What is Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy and how does it work?Biodynamic Craniosacral therapy (BCST) is a gentle form of bodywork that utilizes the inherent self-corrective mechanisms of the central nervous system and the underlying forces of the body as a therapeutic tool for healing. The client remains fully clothed and the touch is light and still. The therapist uses gentle, precise touch to aid the body in releasing restrictions and tension patterns; and redistributing its internal resources to resolve a variety of conditions. By orienting to the slower craniosacral rhythms, which are responsible for promoting maintenance, healing and regeneration, the craniosacral therapist encourages the body to restore balance and health.The body contains a profound wisdom that knows exactly how to heal, given the right conditions. Craniosacral Therapists learn how to trust and create space for this intelligence to manifest, supporting the conditions for deep healing.What are the benefits?In Craniosacral therapy patterns of tension are supported to release throughout the entire body which helps to resolve chronic pain, heal past physical and emotional trauma, strengthen the body’s natural healing processes, and bolster resistance to disease while improving overall health.With each session, tension patterns and constriction continue to unravel and release, and the autonomic nervous system can become more regulated, resulting in steady improvements in body, mood and brain function. As a result you should experience less pain/dysfunction, feel emotionally re-balanced, and more like yourself. It truly is amazing to realize that releasing old trauma can make you feel so much better inside and out.Unresolved stressful or traumatic experiences may be held in the body and restrict our natural capacity to heal. BCST provides a non-invasive and effective way to resolve these patterns of conditioning and allow normal function to return.What to expect durring a treatment:Experiences during a craniosacral session are as individual as we are. During the session, you may relax so deeply that you fall asleep, enjoy a pleasant sense of ease, safety, quiet, presence, softening, buzzing, tingling, floating or you may experience tension or held survival stress releasing through twitches. Some people see images or have insights. You may also experience a deep sense of integration of your body, mind and spirit leaving you feeling more embodied and whole. Often what is happening during the session is quite subtle but then you may notice over the next few days that your system has integrated further and symptoms may have eased.Just as your session can vary from another individual's session greatly, the immediate results from person to person can be just as diverse. This relaxed state may cause some people to sleep for many hours after a session, while others may experience a big increase in energy.
"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..."
