Serving Santa Barbara, Santa Maria & The Santa Ynez Valley

Welcome! I'm Caitlin. As a craniosacral therapist, yoga teacher, and natural beauty educator, I love delivering ways for us to enjoy the rhythms of our bodies and feel more at home in our hearts and deepest sense of peace. I provide craniosacral therapy, yoga therapy, and natural methods to deal with hormonal imbalances and stress-related issues such as:

  • Headaches
  • Fatigue & low energy
  • Migraines
  • Neck/Back/Jaw pain
  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety & Depression
  • Menstrual Pain
  • Changes during pregnancy

... Alongside the purest ways to care for our health and beauty.

These simple methods can help with:

  • immediate stress relief
  • healing skin issues
  • healthy digestion
  • alleviating nasal congestion
  • smoothing facial tension
  • relieving TMJ syndrome-grinding teeth and/or neck tension
  • relieving difficulty sleeping
  • supporting natural youthful skin

In addition to 750 hours of training in craniosacral therapy, I also have many certifications and hours of study in Ayurvedic Bodywork, Essential Oil Therapeutics, various types of massage therapy, and graduate studies in Chinese Medicine. Together, these allow for a more powerful and intuitive approach to your care.

I offer:

  • Craniosacral Therapy for Newborns, Children, and Adults
  • Private Yoga (including Yoga Therapy and Pre/Post-Natal Packages)
  • Step-by-Step Healing Programs for Harmonizing Your Hormones
  • Women’s Circles, Workshops, & Retreats
  • Satsang Gatherings


Craniosacral Therapy

Feel lighter, clearer, and more relaxed on the deepest of levels.

Santa Barbara Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy & OsteopathicCraniosacral Therapy (CST) is a light-touch therapy that supports the release of stress and tension held within the tissues of the body, and promotes the balance of the central nervous system. I use gentle holds that assist the body to balance the bones and tissues that surround the brain and spinal cord. CST helps to release areas where the muscles are tight and where the joints, fluids, and organs are unable to move freely. It creates an ideal environment for the brain and spinal cord, which allows the nerves to communicate clearly and the body to self-correct and heal.

Note: CST is not a massage of the head and is actually quite different from what is typically thought of as massage. However, during sessions, I often use massage therapy techniques and Ayurvedic Facial Rejuvenation to help the facial tissues, scalp, and entire neck area relax more.

There is usually no oil or cream used during CST and you remain clothed during the session.

While some people do respond quite quickly to treatment, each person is unique and requires a unique protocol of treatment.

That being said, I find that most people experience a great shift in their wellbeing within 5 sessions and I offer a special package of 5 (60-minute treatments) for $390 for this reason. :)

I find that craniosacral therapy is especially beneficial for:

  • women experiencing pregnancy discomfort
  • infants and mothers recovering from birth
  • chronic experiences of jaw pain, neck pain, back pain, or headaches
  • anxiety, stress, or difficulty relaxing
  • preparing for or recovering from surgery
  • stress-related illnesses
  • fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue
  • adjusting to major life changes

After session and when requested, I will share exercises that promote relaxation, balance, and shifts in how you understand and feel the body, which can help you to get a better sense of your body's relationship to stress, and more importantly, how you can support it in unwinding tension patterns and finding inner equilibrium.

Standard Session Rates:

Newborns, Babies and Children:

  • Initial Sessions (75 minutes) - $115
  • Follow-up 30 minute - $55; 45 minute (please allow 60 minutes in case feeding and changing needed) - $75

I’m in Santa Barbara two days a week and I offer house visits throughout Santa Barbara County for newborns and their mothers wanting to receive care as well as children with autism and learning disabilities that are sensitive to their surroundings and most comfortable at home.

Women's Circles & Meditation Groups in Santa Barbara & Avila Beach, CA

I feel honored to be hosting these gatherings that honor the truth of our being. My dear friend and teacher, Pamela Wilson, has given me her blessing to share this delightful work with you, and since 2012, I've been sharing in homes and at retreats.

Be led in feeling deeply at home in your own body and presence, resting within the present moment. These gatherings offer a space for caring for ourselves with silent and guided meditation, breathwork, and spontaneous discussion. Together, we relax, clear, and connect from our love.

Held monthly at private homes in SLO and Santa Barbara County. Offered by donation. Please RSVP for details.
