My name is Virginia Wilke. I am a registered biodynamic craniosacral therapist in private practice in San Diego, California. I have extensive training in craniosacral therapy, as well as other forms of bodywork that support whole-person healing and trauma resolution.

I specialize in pain and injuries to the core of the body—the neck, back, and pelvis—along with the trauma, stress, and emotional wounds that our tissues can hold.

My Training

I received my Holistic Health Practitioner (HHP) certification from the International Professional School of Bodywork (IPSB) with more than 1,200 hours of bodywork training. My specializations were in Craniosacral Therapy, Somato-Emotional Integration, and Relational Somatics, which utilizes the practitioner-client relationship as the primary healing tool.

I am passionate about craniosacral therapy.

Following my HHP, I went on to complete more than 1,000 hours of additional craniosacral biodynamics training. This included a two-year biodynamic craniosacral therapy certification program through LifeShapes Institute. I am currently a registered craniosacral therapist through the Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy Association of North America.

I was privileged to teach what I learned for four years at the International Professional School of Bodywork. I taught craniosacral therapy and assisted in somatic process classes, helping students learn to hold the emotional processes that can arise during bodywork.

Currently, I offer bodywork to my clients in private practice and continue to take advanced courses in craniosacral therapy in order to deepen my connection to this lifelong work. I am also an intermediate level student of Somatic Experiencing®, a 3-year trauma therapy training program, and I integrate these techniques into my practice.

When not involved in bodywork, my other passion is writing. I have been a professional health writer and editor for more than a decade and am also an aspiring novelist. My fictional characters often grow impatient waiting for me to get back to their lives.
