The information contained on this website and accompanying blog (collectively “website”), including ideas, suggestions, techniques, methods, publications, resources, videos, case studies, and other materials, is educational in nature and is provided only as general information and is not medical or psychological advice. Transmission of the information presented on the website is not intended to create and receipt does not constitute any professional relationship between Kate Mackinnon and the visitor and should not be relied upon as physical therapy, medical, psychological, or other professional advice of any kind or nature.    

You understand that by viewing this website you will be introduced to an integrative approach to wellness that incorporates a couple of holistic healing arts methods within the field of Complementary and Alternative Medicine, including CranioSacral Therapy (CST) and Healing from the Core® (HFC) (collectively the “CAM Methods”). CAM Methods is a shared term used to refer to a variety of alternative healing techniques, approaches, methods, and intuitive assessments based on the use and modification of energy fields meant to promote health and well-being in mind, body, and spirit. CST is considered a gentle, hands-on approach that is designed to release tensions deep in the body, relieve discomfort and dysfunction, and improve whole-body health and performance. CST uses a light touch to assess membranes and movement of fluids in and around the central nervous system to bring harmony and to restore natural rhythm. HFC is an approach designed to develop skills for listening to the body’s own innate wisdom. The premise of HFC is that the body has its own instinctive navigational system for restoring and maintaining health and well-being. It is designed to help clients experience a deep connection with their bodies, their internal landscape so that they can perceive the subtle-energy clues that are continually being transmitted to them. The theory of the CAM Methods is that the flow and balance of the body’s electromagnetic and more subtle energies are important for physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual and for fostering well-being.  

Although the CAM Methods appear to have promising physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual benefits, they are considered outside traditional Western approaches to health and wellness and have yet to be fully researched by the Western academic, medical, and psychological communities. Therefore, the CAM Methods are considered experimental and the extent of their effectiveness, as well as their risks and benefits, are not fully known. The CAM Methods are self-regulated and the State of California does not license, register, or certify any practitioners of the CAM Methods and considers them to be alternative or complementary to the healing arts that are licensed by the State of California. 

Although CranioSacral Therapy uses the term “therapy” and the CAM Methods are intended for “healing”, it is not to be construed that the use of the CAM Methods is the practice of physical therapy, medicine, psychotherapy, or any other licensed health care practice. Rather, the CAM Methods are designed to assist clients, in addressing imbalances in the physical systems of the body as well as in the energy systems of the body; thereby, creating the opportunity for the mind/body to heal naturally. You understand there is a distinction between “healing” using the CAM Methods and the practice of physical therapy, medicine, psychotherapy, or any other licensed health care practice. 

Any information presented on this website about the CAM Methods is not intended to represent that they are used to diagnose, cure, treat, or prevent any medical condition or psychological disorder nor are they intended as a substitute for seeking licensed health care advice and services. Kate Mackinnon strongly advises that you seek professional advice as appropriate before making any health decision.
