What is Craniosacral Therapy?

Craniosacral is a gentle-touch therapy, where the practitioner observes various layers of the physical, emotional, and energetic body. Each practitioner has different gifts. I notice the rhythm and balance of the nervous system and energetic body, the fascia (bones, muscles, organs), and aspects that feel 'stuck.' Through Somato-Emotional Release, I help clients experiences in silence of verbally. My gift is being able to read the body and I will often intuitive insights to support my client's healing.

Craniosacral for Children

What does a Craniosacral + Somato-Emotional Release Session look like?

Each session is unique - some are more physically focused and others more energetic, as all our layers are intertwined. We begin our session with a brief discussion on what to expect, any primary concerns and assessment, and how we will work together. Clothes remain on, with a blanket over you for comfort as you lay on down. I guide you through a brief breathwork and meditation session, to help you connect with your energy and body while placing my hands at your feet. Here I notice the physical alignment or holding patterns in the body, and the Craniosacral flow of cerebral spinal fluid. From there I move as called by your body, working either in silence or with brief discussion along the way, while you relax into a Theta state.

If this is for a child, I offer the child the option to watch me do a mini-session for their parent. This can help them understand what to expect. I always make sure to let them know they can use their voice and let me know if anything doesn't feel right to them - same for adults. This has never come up as we work in-sync, but it's part of my core values to ensure everyone feels safe and can use their voice.

Birth and early experiences often come up, as this is where our core beliefs originate and we find our energetic blue print. You will only receive the information you need at this time. Through this work we can release patterns that show up mentally, emotionally, energetically, and physically that may no longer be serving our potential. Supporting infants can be especially beneficial, as we set the stage to thrive!

What happens after a Craniosacral Session?

After our session, we have a discussion and I share any pertinent intuitive insights that came to the surface if you wish. Often these have to do with patterns in your life that have manifested in the body. I provide you with yoga, breathwork, myofascial and other tools, so you can continue to support your daily well-being. As you would with any other therapeutic session, I encourage you to drink lots of water and be gentle with yourself. Sometimes when we are processing, we may feel foggy, light-headed, or even run down if our body is clearing out a lot.

What can Craniosacral Therapy help with?

  • Prenatal anxiety and discomfort

  • Birth healing for infants and mothers, physically and emotionally

  • Infant sleep, latching, digestion, colic, torticollis, and ear infections

  • Childhood anxiety, sleep, ADHD, ASD, T21 (grinding, speech) + more

  • Acute concerns – whiplash, physical injury or trauma, range of motion etc

  • Somatoemotional release of patterns and limiting beliefs, to find greater self-love and acceptance

  • Chronic concerns - sleep, anxiety/depression, immune function, fatigue, digestion, TMJ, migraines, fertility, arthritis, brain fog


I felt so much energy moving & tingling in my body during the session and Katie was bang on in finding a few areas where I could feel there were some major blocks. After the session I felt so much lighter as she worked to release them. I’d definitely recommend seeing Katie!



You have healing hands...I started to see results after I brought my daughter to you for the first time.

She started eating solid food and talking, saying so many words. I'm so happy and thankful for her huge improvement.


“"""I have had chronic headaches and migraines for years and after my first session with Katie and 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. She is wonderful and understanding and I definitely recommend giving it a try!


What are Craniosacral Nerves?

We have 12 cranial nerves. The two accessory nerves allowing for head movement, 9 innervate our senses, and the 10th, our Vagus Nerve, links our brain and internal organs. Subconsciously we scan the environment every 4-7 seconds to determine if we are safe or not. Very simply, this information travels to our brain to determine based on previous experiences if we should react in a sympathetic (activated) or parasympathetic response (calm). Our organs also tell our brain how to react, sending information through the Vagus Nerve.

Can Craniosacral Help with Trauma?

When we experience something that is too much for us, it can become 'stuck' or encoded in our bodies. This is especially true for children or those who are not verbal. When we feel safe and supported, these experiences will come to the surface to process and release. Chronic stress, acute injury, and birth experiences can also lead to 'stuck' experiences in our bodies, and changes to our whole being. Craniosacral can be very powerful in helping to release trauma.

What Katie shared with me after was all absolutely true, and a helpful take away I can work with.

I am still feeling shifting happening in my body the day after treatment. I would highly recommend Katie to be part of your healing journey.



Katie’s treatment was so healing on several levels. Her knowledge and gentle demeanor made for a relaxing and moving experience.



Katie delivers an amazing amount of care and healing energy into her practice. I was dealing with a mild concussion and I truly feel that my session with Katie helped put me on the path to healing and feeling more like myself. I highly recommend and value Katie’s practice.


Craniosacral Offerings

Mama Love $390

This makes a perfect Baby Shower gift, as it is an incredible opportunity for parents to release any core beliefs that are no longer serving, and find peace in the physical body before and after birth, in addition to grounding and welcoming a new little soul into the world! This may be supportive for moms who have experienced any form of birth and those who struggle with breast feeding. Often infants experience a degree of distress through birth or compression in the neck (cervical spine). While this package includes sessions for mom and infant, I would recommend adding a partner session, as partners usually struggle witnessing their loved one through the birthing experience and often don't have the opportunity to process this. You may choose to add on the extra sessions at the reduced rates below when paid together. Gift certificates are available. Please contact to book.

Mom + Child $240

This session is an opportunity for mom + babe (or a child) to release underlying emotions, birth trauma, and any core beliefs no longer serving, to create greater ease in the physical and emotional body. Within the first year parents find this supportive for babies with torticollis, chronic ear infections, sleep, digestive, and emotional concerns. These sessions are also very helpful for challenging postpartum experiences, for both mom and babe, particularly those who struggle with breast feeding, postpartum anxiety or depression. Many parents also find this supportive when they notice their child is highly sensitive, neurodiverse or struggles with sensory & emotional processing. I like to see mom first to understand the birth and lived experience of both. You may choose to add on extra sessions at the reduced rates below when paid together. Gift certificates are available.

Single Sessions

Child (0-10y): 45m session $90

I generally like to see a parent first to understand the child's birth experience and discuss any concerns or questions, particularly around how to explain the session to children. Parents are present in the room for the child's session, sometimes also laying with the child. Some children are ready to start right away, and others like to do a little session for their parents first, so they can understand what it looks like. I bring in elements of play therapy, to include sound healing, age-appropriate breathwork, and other children's yoga practices. I would recommend booking 5 sessions for your child, particularly if they are struggling with emotional, behavioural, physical development, learning or sensory processing concerns. You are welcome to book at a clinic below, or contact to arrange a time for a 15 minute free consult.

5 Sessions $375 (save $75)

Add on 3 months of at-home SSP access with purchase of 5 sessions for only $99.

Adult: 75m session $150

Collaboratively we address your concerns, allowing you and your body to be the guide. Sometimes this is more physical, and other times emotional or energetic. Both are always present, and I share a practice to support you after your session.

Empowering the Family

Our family nervous system is one, just like within each of us, we must address the whole. As parents, we are so often on the go with the various demands of daily life, it can be hard to step back and reassess holistically and objectively. This is where my work comes in. With my experience and training in Craniosacral + Somato-Emotional Release, Certified Safe + Sound Protocol Provider, and Expert Yoga + Children's Yoga Instruction, I draw upon science-backed tools and intuition to empower the family as a whole.

Over the last few years, our systems have been under a lot and we are feeling it! This can present as anxiety, depression, regression, and other concerns. Those who are Highly Sensitive are especially prone to feeling it, as our current lifestyles are usually not supportive for us - we need to re-work a few things. I offer each of your family members holistic tools you can incorporate into your daily life to nourish their nervous system for meaningful connection, greater peace, love and joy!

We begin with a 90 minute session for parents to understand family dynamics and where you need support. I then work with your children, with you present or not based on the child's choice and age. These sessions may be in-person (North Vancouver) or virtual.
