CAROLINE SNIJDER (LMT, RES-CPT)
The focus of Caroline’s work is to enable you to regain confidence in your body’s ability to take you where you want to go. By addressing the body as a whole, connected unit, she seeks not only to alleviate your current pain and limitations, but to respond to contributing factors, for more complete healing and to prevent future injury. Using a blend of bodywork techniques, she provides a nourishing squish to those rigid, congealed, glued-down areas, easing open restrictions while respecting the pace at which your structures are ready to move. Her passion is to restore your ability to easily carry your baby, spend the day gardening, clean ALL the things, or just climb Mt. Baker. Having graduated from UC Berkeley in 2012 with a degree in Molecular Environmental Biology, Caroline’s scientific background guides her practice in massage. She thrives on positive human connection of all forms, and in 2017, she realized true fulfillment by becoming a mother.

My approach to wellness largely involves encouraging the body to draw upon its natural healing abilities. We have all that we need to heal within us and accessible to us at all times. My treatment style focuses on working together to gently nudge your unique imbalances back to state of balance and harmony. Health is all about balance. Shiatsu is one way to help bring the body back to balance and remind it of its innate and powerful healing capacity. Shiatsu is a Japanese massage therapy which uses traditional acupuncture pathways to treat the entire person in body, mind, and spirit. If appropriate, I enjoy incorporating fire cupping in order to relieve pain, improve circulation, and boost the immune system. I discovered Shiatsu and cupping while obtaining my masters degree in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine and they quickly became two of my favorite modalities! I am a licensed Acupuncturist in Washington State and have a private practice in the wellness room at the Bellingham Yoga Collective.
