Caitlin Lyon is a licensed massage practitioner and certified biodynamic craniosacral therapist with over 5000 hours of bodywork, manual therapy, and energy medicine training. She began her career in the healing arts over a decade ago as a therapeutic yoga teacher and Reiki practitioner. As she worked with many bodies, including those with special needs, she began to notice that patterns in the subtle energy systems were affecting much of her clients' imbalances and chose to direct her study in mind-body medicine. She pursued graduate studies in Chinese Medicine at Five Branches University when she discovered the biodynamic approach to craniosacral therapy and it proved to be the most profound and effective healing she had ever experienced. Since then, this light-touch, hands-on therapy has been her core therapeutic work. Her practice supports newborns, children, and adults with acute and chronic conditions - those looking for stress relief and relaxation to those looking for emotional healing and trauma recovery.


Her skillful, intuitive approach puts clients at ease as she uses many access points to guide clients to the same outcome: more centeredness, pain relief, deep calm, and a comforting sense of wholeness and health. While craniosacral therapy is her primary focus, she brings in more ancient healing practices as well as modern trauma resolution. Depending on what you need, she may use Reiki, aromatherapy, acupressure, gua sha, craniosacral therapy, Esalen-inspired, energy balancing-massage or Ayurvedic bodywork. Together, you'll listen to your body's wisdom and honor it's pacing and priorities for healing and wellbeing.

Caitlin creates an integrative treatment plan and sessions that empower you to access your own inner wisdom, clarity, and compassion. She has created a peaceful space where one come to heal and revivify mind-body and spirit.
  
With its ability to facilitate healing from early and ongoing trauma, stress-related illness, and various imbalances, BCST has quickly become her go-to offering for people in every stage of life and health.
