Hi there, I'm Cait.
I am an occupational therapist specializing in pelvic floor and chronic pain. I have extensive training in yoga and craniosacral therapy, as well as internal and external evaluation of the pelvis, back, and hips.
I help people feel more comfortable and empowered in their bodies.
I am a body positive therapist. I believe in supporting all people across the gender spectrum and use trauma-informed care.
I live Tillson, NY with my amazing husband and our dog, Blue.

A Brief History of the Practice
I have always loved the body's shapes.
I began teaching movement when I was 22. At that time, I was in love with Anusara yoga; I still am today.
As I dove deeper into studies of anatomy and the body, I became fascinated by the structural components that keep us stable and mobile; the arches, or domes, that repeat up and down the body's template.
The arches of the pelvis, skull, thorax, diaphragm and feet (just to name a few) all interplay with one another to provide the body with optimal performance.
I believe in natural movement and play over strict and rigid exercise; that a wild, intuitive body can lead towards health.
"Wild Arches" is an homage to this belief that the arches of our body, our structural keystones, are supported by a wild abandon for play, love, and life.
