Craniosacral Therapy

Chi Nei Tsang (Abdominal Massage)

Since 1987

Located in Downtown Kirkland

Often clients come in frustrated having tried so many therapies. Experiencing pain associated with migraines, neck, shoulders, low back, and dealing with an inordinate amount of stress. Craniosacral Therapy is recognized for the depth of its therapeutic effects and its’ ability to resolve issues not helped by other modalities. It is gentle and non-invasive, yet affects major changes in physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

Abdominal self-massage is an excellent tool for improving and maintaining overall gut health. The Happy Guts class is based on the practice of Chi Nei Tsang (abdominal massage) developed by Taoist monks in ancient China. Modern Chi Nei Tsang is abdominal organ massage meant to aid elimination & detoxification while building gut health, inner vitality & Chi, stabilize our emotions, and assists our well-being back to balance.

We live in a fast-paced stressful world. Fast food, prolonged sitting, undigested emotions, chemicals, and forever ‘to-do’ lists play havoc with our nervous & digestive systems. Over time, gut function directly affects our basic levels of physical health, emotional well-being, and spiritual vitality. Chi Nei Tsang is an excellent tool to move stress, tension, and unexpressed emotions through our systems.

During our time together we will work toward deeper understanding of how our digestive systems work, what can go wrong, and how to support digestive health and emotional well-being through slow mindful self-belly massage. We will learn and experience the power of breath, gut awareness, and purposeful abdominal self-touch to reduce tension, pain, and discomfort.

You will learn hands-on abdominal massage and self-care routines for daily use and to share with friends and family. Learning resources will be provided.

This class is for anyone who wants to learn lifelong self-care tools that can diminish symptoms of digestive discomfort and stress. Hope to see you there!

“Respectful, patient, and skilled touch allows the body to release patterns of tension that hold trauma.”

COVID-19 UPDATE

I received a notice from the WA State Dept. of Health yesterday, June 1st. And I quote, ‘The department has clarified that under Proclamation 20-24.1, a licensed massage therapist is providing a “health care service” and this service can be provided at any location statewide, including in counties still in Phase 1 under the Governor’s Safe Start Washington plan, as long as the requirements in the proclamation and in the laws governing massage therapy are met.’

I’ll be returning on Monday, June 15th. My hours will be Mon, Wed, Fri and the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month. I’ll only be working with 3 patients daily due to the PPE I ‘m required to wear; gloves, mask, eye wear, and a gown. There will be strict disinfectant procedures between each client. No cash, checks, or cards can be exchanged. You’ll have to pay online when scheduling your appointments. If you’ve pre-paid for a series, I’ve set the options to just schedule your appointment. I’m discontinuing the series prices for now. With these uncertain times, I don’t want to be sitting on your money!

Everyone will have to fill out a Required COVID-19 Disclosure for Massage Therapy for EACH AND EVERY VISIT until further notice. Please download, complete, and email or fax the completed form back to us within 24 hours of every visit. You will need to mask up from the time you enter the building until you leave.

To limit contact in the waiting room, please stay in your car or outside. I’ll text or call you when it’s time, and meet you outside the front door to take your temperature.

I know these measures may seem extreme, and definitely a hassle. But, I remind you massage therapy is considered a medium-risk activity. There is absolutely no way to distance. I work with many patients with compromised health issues. So, let’s play it safe for each other! –Kathleen

I really enjoyed my craniosacral therapy session with Kathleen Yow-Wells. I had my second cesarian birth three months ago and my body was not feeling 100%. Kathleen was able to rebalance so much and also let me know some weak points that are going on. I’m now taking proactive steps to continue the healing process. Thank you!
