Kaijah Bjorklund LMT, NMT, CST*
has been practicing bodywork since 2000. Prior moving to Ashland she lived in Prescott, Arizona where she was in private practice. She began her initial training at The Heartwood Institute. Since then she has accrued over 3000 hours of highly specialized training. She is a certified Neuromuscular Therapist, Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist, and Maya Abdominal Practitioner. In addition she has extensive training in Orthopedic and Sports Injury techniques including Myoskeletal Alignment, Structural & Myofascial Release Techniques and Chi Nei Tsang. She also practices Swedish, Massage Cupping, Prenatal Massage, Reiki, and Raindrop Aromatherapy.
In her years in practice she has worked with her clients successfully treating a wide variety of issues including chronic pain, migraines, auto and sports injuries, post surgical scar tissue, frozen shoulder, plantar fascitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, digestive issues, women’s reproductive issues including painful periods, irregular cycles, prolapsed bladder and difficult menopause, stress, postural imbalances, circulatory problems, trauma, fibromyalgia, reduced range of motion, migraines, TMJ and many other conditions.
Kaijah uses an integrative approach to massage using what ever technique suits the needs of her clients in the moment. She approaches her work holistically and looks at how to treat overall imbalances. She brings a caring present approach to her technical and clinical skills. Having suffered with chronic pain from multiple accidents and sports injures Kaijah was inspired to pursue studying the most effective bodywork and healing techniques available. She uses her years of yoga and meditation practice to help her keep life in balance in and out of her office. When not pre-occupied with learning something new, you will find her traveling, hiking, biking, running and doing anything that gets her playing outside.
In order to help satisfy her desire to further understand and work with the mind and body connection currently Kaijah is pursuing a Masters Degree in Somatic Counseling Psychology. Prior to becoming a massage therapist she was an Outward Bound wilderness instructor where she counseled adjudicated youth and their families.
