Brooke Holland CST, LMT
I have always been interested in health from a global perspective - having majored in Global Studies from the University of California, Santa Barbara - however my passion for hands-on healing began after volunteering for a birth clinic in Indonesia. This experience, coupled with my own healing journey, became the catalyst for my interest in medicine and the world of health and wellness. Thinking I would pursue a career as an OBGYN, I apprenticed with an osteopathic physician at a medical center in Los Angeles for three years while enrolled in a pre-med program. This experience laid the groundwork for my allopathic understanding of the body for which a subtler awareness is built.
I first discovered Craniosacral Therapy (CST) during my apprenticeship at the medical center. I watched as patients with complex pathologies seemed to miraculously heal. This was the first time I witnessed the inseparable nature of our physical, mental and emotional selves. Something about Craniosacral Therapy spoke to me. At first I struggled to understand how such a light touch modality could invite such profound physiological change, however after receiving my first session and experiencing the benefits myself, my curiosity was hooked.
I took a huge leap of face and withdrew my application to med school and dedicated myself to this work. While changing course so radically was a terrifying decision to make, it was in complete alignment with my heart. The years I spent studying was invaluable as it is this strong academic foundation for which my intuition and technical skill is supported.
I love this work and enjoy collaborating with physicians, chiropractors, dentists, and other health practitioners to support the overall wellbeing of my clients.
While not working I enjoy writing, teaching workshops, hiking and ocean swimming.
