Katey Wheelhouse spent 15 years as an Assistant Director in Hollywood working on major motion pictures and TV shows. While fulfilling in many ways, she found it to be an unhealthy work/ life balance. Recognizing that her yoga practice brought balance, self connection and peace into her life, each year found her spending less time on film sets and more time on her yoga mat; completing over 500 hours of Yoga Teacher Training.
She dove deeper into her holistic endeavors and found her true gift of healing touch through Thai Massage. Now a Sunshine Network Thai Masseuse, she has furthered her body work education with trainings in The Triple Vagal Method , Craniosacral and Cranial Therapy. All four of these modalities work together to bring her clients deep healing and deep connection to self.
Katey believes that touch is one of the most healing powers we can offer each other. Through Thai Massage, Katey is able to connect with individuals on a deep level. Thai massage uses the gentle pressure on energy lines and the yoga-like stretching to relax the whole body on a deeper level. This deeper level of relaxation improves the individuals' personal outlook and their emotional status. The movements allow for the mind and the spirit to slow down and realize a true form of relaxation.
TRIPLE VAGAL METHOD
The Triple Vagal Method® is a somatic trauma transformation method that aims to release & heal trauma while increasing vagal tone through physical touch of the main branches of the vagus nerve. The vagus nerve is responsible for fight or flight, freeze, and social engagement responses in the body and we engage the branches responsible of these responses safely in each TVM™ session. The Triple Vagal Method® is a bottom up somatic approach to trauma healing that is achieved by releasing trauma from the nervous system in order to complete any unresolved trauma cycles, this encourages the releasing of oxytocin and the breaking down calcification of the fascia all the while reducing the levels of cortisol (stress hormone) in the body.
Craniosacral is a gentle hands-on technique that uses a light touch to explore membranes and movement of the fluids in and around the central nervous system. Relieving tension in the central nervous system promotes a feeling of well-being by eliminating pain and boosting health and immunity. The focus of CST is a gentle placement of hands to assist release of the body’s connective tissue, or fascia. Fascia is a covering found throughout the body including organs, glands, nerves, muscles, blood vessels, brain and spinal cord. This covering forms a body-wide connective network. CST is based on the idea that the body is interrelated at all levels and can improve efficiency of biological processes through boosting inherent self-regulation, self-correction and self-healing.
CRANIAL MANIPULATION THERAPY
Cranial Therapy is an integrated set of hands-on techniques and procedures designed to remove the stresses and tensions that build up in the muscles, joints, and bones of the head and face. It is integrated with specialized techniques that are rooted in Ayurvedic Medicine, for the treatment of the eyes, ears, sinuses, tongue, and mind.
