Kate Mackinnon, Founder & CranioSacral Therapist


  • About Kate

    Kate Mackinnon is a Diplomat Certified CranioSacral Therapist through the Upledger Institute, a presenter for the Healing from the Core Curriculum as well as being a licensed Physical Therapist in both California and the United Kingdom. 

    Kate has been using touch to support her patients in their healing and in accessing their physical potential for the last 30 years. She spent many years working with children with disabilities where she first came across CranioSacral Therapy.

    She has found CST to be very effective in helping people access their own self healing mechanism and has seen amazing results using her hands in this more subtle and profound way.


    Kate is very excited to get this effective treatment more widely known through her book entitled "From my Hands and Heart: Achieving Health and Balance with CranioSacral Therapy" published through Hay House with a foreword written by Dr. Wayne Dyer, who was her patient and the impetus for her to write the book. 

    Kate is passionate about having a conversation about how we can all be more at ease around touch in a safe and compassionate way. She has partnered with Scarlett Lewis to bring this conversation into schools when working with Social Emotional Learning.

    Kate has a private practice in Livermore, California and enjoys her connection with like minded health care practitioners in her local area.  Kate co-founded Soul Connection Healing Center where the group meets regularly to support each other in their work.
