 About Chris Chaplin - Certified CranioSacral Therapist

& Certified Massage Practitioner 33769 & Usui & Karuna Reiki® Master

    I was born in South Africa and lived there for a large portion of my life, working in the corporate world as a project manager. A number of years ago I landed in the USA with my family, first landing in Iowa City and then moving to San Diego 16 months later, where we continue to live and enjoy life 18 years later. I felt that it was time to follow my heart and decided to leave the corporate world.  I have had an interesting journey since then.


    To cut a long story short, I undertook a spiritual journey to a magical part of the world in Teotihuacan, Mexico and while there I rediscovered a part of myself that I had been ignoring for some time. Upon returning I started to meditate more frequently, listen to my intuition more and practice yoga. I researched a number of ways that I could join the healing arts world and was drawn to Reiki as the first step along my path.

    I received my level one attunement and immediately began my daily self practice of Reiki and also on a steady stream of family and friends. The energy work was powerful and amazing and I knew I was meant to do this work. I received a few referrals and so a practice was starting. A few months passed and I decided to attend the level two attunement.

    The effect of that attunement was powerful and immediate. I worked on some of the same people and they could feel the difference as could my clients.

    After much soul searching I decided to change teachers for my masters. Upon Completion of my Masters I continued to practice on myself and to grow my practice. I started to teach classes and have enojoyed teaching others about Reiki and helping them along their spiritual path.

    I wanted to increase my knowledge and also to add to the healing benefits of my practice and so decided to take the Karuna Reiki® class. Karuna Reiki® allows one to go deeper faster and hence helps to get to the root of the problem more effectively and so blockages are moved more easily.

    More recently I have added CranioSacral Therapy to my tool box. I am an advanced level practitioner, having taken CranioSacral 1 and 2, SomatoEmotional Release 1 and 2, Advanced 1 and 2, and Developing Deeper CranioSacral Presence through the Upledger Institute and have had some fantastic results and experiences with it. Recently I completed my techniques level certification with the Upledger Institute. I have also been involved as a support therapist in the Comprehensive Therapy Program that the Upledger Institute offers.  

    I would like to bring you the same peace, balance and harmony that I have brought to numerous other people through Reiki, Massage and CranioSacral therapy no matter what the nature of their problem is.  Please contact me to schedule an appointment and you will find a caring, considerate and compassionate person that will spend the time listening to you and your body.

    Look forward to hearing from you soon.


    Best wishes.
