"This very body that we have, that’s sitting right here right now…with its aches and its pleasures…is exactly what we need to be fully human, fully awake, fully alive.” Pema Chodron

Craniosacral therapy has been my full-time professional focus since 2012. While I have studied many healing modalities over the past 15 years, craniosacral therapy has offered the most profound and effective healing. With its ability to facilitate healing from early and ongoing trauma, stress-related illness, and various imbalances, it's quickly become my go-to offering for people in every stage of life and health.

Craniosacral therapy has been my full-time professional focus since 2012. While I have studied many healing modalities over the past 15 years, craniosacral therapy has offered the most profound and effective healing. With its ability to facilitate healing from early and ongoing trauma, stress-related illness, and various imbalances, it's quickly become my go-to offering for people in every stage of life and health.

Currently, I have a practice in Santa Barbara and Solvang, CA, where I work with infants, children, and adults of all ages - those with a broad range of issues including acute and chronic pain, fatigue, migraines, TMJ dysfunction, post traumatic stress disorder, birth trauma, anxiety and depression, recovery from surgery, injury and cancer, heavy metal toxicity, and much more. 
I work with those interested in greater internal balance, body awareness, and personal growth.

My role as a therapist is to collaborate with you. I love helping people find ease in their bodies and feel more connected to themselves and their life. You can find out more about my approach at lyonwellness.com

Background

My healing training began with yoga and meditation while studying anthropology. As a fresh start from the stress and speed of city life, I transitioned into bodywork, including acupressure, Ayurveda, massage, Reiki, and various other bodywork techniques. I then pursued graduate studies in Chinese Medicine with a focus on women's health, and it was during this time that I discovered biodynamic craniosacral therapy. My background and further education in somatic work with a focus on trauma and emotional release techniques have enabled me to effectively blend my skills into a truly wholistic therapeutic offering.
 
I'm a fully certified biodynamic craniosacral therapist, graduate of the Pacific School of Biodynamic Integration, and a California-licensed massage practitioner (LMP #49494).
