My name is Casie Pelnar. I am the owner and therapist at Cleansing Spirit Bodywork. I have over 14 years experience as a CranioSacral Therapist and 18 years experience as an Equine Massage Therapist.
A little more about me, I am an analytical thinker and problem solver by nature – working for more than 20 years in engineering. More recently, I’ve discovered my true purpose is helping people address their wellness challenges through natural, healing, alternative medicine. I have studied alternative medicine for more than 18 years, and I continue to learn and grow to better my practice.
My personal journey started in 2003 when a friend encouraged me to pursue a certification in Equine Massage Therapy. A short while later, I was introduced to CranioSacral Therapy (CST) as a way to relieve migraines. I was amazed at the difference and I needed to know more, so I enrolled at the number one educational program for CranioSacral Therapy, The Upledger Institute.
I have since added Reiki Master, Equine Touch Practitioner, and Equine CST to my toolbox. I have multiple certifications and 14 years of CST expertise. The integration of these programs has helped redefine my skills and add more value to my practice.
As an engineer I used the study of proper body mechanics for process improvements. Those experiences allowed me to apply my bodywork training to safety and body mechanics on the job to help reduce workplace injuries. As a therapist, this gives me a clearer understanding of my clients physical workplace requirements so we can establish health plan goals.
I have worked with massage therapists, chiropractors, nutritionists and physicians and have enjoyed the collaborative approach to helping improve my clients’ health and well-being. I continue to work to keep these communications open and engaging in my clients interests.
Each client session leads me to an appreciation of the resilience and healing power our bodies possess. I continue to be amazed how we can recover from injury and dysfunction, whether that restriction is physical, mental, or emotional.
I look forward to being part of your journey to wellness!
In my own life, I strive for balance and harmony through emotional, spiritual, and physical wellbeing. I study nutritional health with focus on supplements, anti-inflammatory diets, meditation, and yoga, all of which I also discuss with my clients. This has translated into a whole-body approach to localized symptoms in my CranioSacral practice.
"Casie is very professional and knowledgeable. She takes the time to truly listen and she is very in tune with you. I will definitely go back to see her again as needed."
