Celia Kaiser Massage, Polarity, and Craniosacral Therapist
From a young age, I grew up with a lot of chronic physical pain in my body. Stomach distress, headaches, pain, and many sensitivities to foods controlled my life. As I traveled the traditional road of western medicine to treat my problems, I started taking an overabundance of medications and fell into a deep depression. My symptoms were treated rather than the underlying problem. I was overwhelmed with medications, physical pain, and immense frustration that nothing was changing. I started exploring various forms of holistic healing, and my life began to change in profound ways.
Once I started exploring the root cause of my physical and emotional distress, I uncovered old wounds that needed to be brought to the surface to be healed. I started building myself back up from a broken and empty place into a place of self-love and empowerment. I learned how to listen to my body and regained a connection with my physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual bodies. I discovered that the human body has an amazing abundance of resilient power. It amazes me what our systems are capable of if we put our intentions into action.
Becoming a massage therapist was the start of my holistic healing journey, and I started my practice in 2012 in my hometown in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I am someone who is always wanting more, and so I moved alone across the country in 2019. I started attending The Southwest Institute of Healing Arts in Tempe, Arizona, where I expanded my toolbelt with Holistic Nutrition, Reiki, Life Coaching, Craniosacral Therapy, Aromatherapy, Trauma Healing, Somatic Psychology, Chakra balancing, Reflexology, and Polarity Therapy training.
Once I found polarity therapy at this school, my life began to change drastically, and I began to heal and transform on a deeper level. I really began to connect my old pains and traumas to my emotional body, recognizing that physical chronic pain stems from unresolved trauma and blocked energy in the body. This modality has given me a deeper connection to my mind and body and the expansive possibilities of spiritual and energetic pathways within each of our human forms. I have found a way to support people in healing deeply, finding their most authentic sense of self, and giving rise to their own personal power to take control of their lives. I am immensely grateful and honored that I have found this to be my life’s work.
I am dedicated to seeing each individual as their whole and complete self, putting a lot of importance on the mind-body-spirit connection. Recognizing everyone’s personal gifts and attributes, I am dedicated to inspiring and supporting individuals into a place of self-ownership and empowerment. The transformation will happen from the inside out, allowing the body to heal by its own nature while you gain a deeper connection to your most authentic self.
Here are the descriptions of what I offer in Massage therapy and Polarity therapy:
Polarity Therapy: Polarity therapy is an energy-based modality that focuses on balancing the energetic body to promote flow, health, and vitality, integrating the connection of the mind, body, and spirit. It is an integrative approach that believes that changing the body’s electromagnetic field results in treating various bodily issues, cognitive dysfunction, and other various problems. The body may hold emotional experiences from the past that result in chronic pain, digestive issues, anxiety, depression, and many other ailments. Releasing blockages and promoting this energetic flow is achieved through hands-on bodywork, talk therapy, toning and sound, stretching, intuitive guidance, craniosacral therapy, and education on exercises and nutrition.
Massage Therapy: Each massage session is tailored just for you. Attention will be given to your physical body, as well as to your mental, emotional, and spiritual state. Each session integrates any modality that is best suited for your needs. This may include but is not limited to therapeutic massage, medical massage, deep tissue massage, Swedish massage, relaxation massage, hot stone massage, sports massage, reflexology, trigger point therapy, acupressure, lymphatic massage, prenatal massage, and abdominal massage. Reiki, chakra balancing, craniosacral, and polarity therapy may also be incorporated depending on your needs and focus for the session. Before each session, a direct line of communication will be thoroughly resourced to offer you the exact massage to transform you from the inside out.
