About Dr. Caralina
Health is so important. When we are healthy and pain free, we can experience life more fully. We can give more to others and be of service more easily.
Since early childhood, I knew that I wanted to make a difference in the quality of life and health of humanity and to our planet. State of health is contagious: when even one person is healthy, it upgrades the conscousness and quality of life of the collective.
Early on, I embarked on a journey of my own health care and inner work. I have always enjoyed the benefits of exercise and healthy lifestyle as well. Having been through my own challenges, I have recovered from them via my inner work and continued practices. I offer and teach these practices to my patients in my work.
My practice is always evolving, and after over 35 years, I continue to be amazed at how grateful I am to have found my calling!
My education section serves as a quick reference, but there is so much more to my experience than I can possibly list. Or write about.
In 1985, I was attending Fullerton College in Southern California working my way through undergrad courses while I sought my path. I knew I was a healer, but I was unsure of how I would express that in the world. I was searching.
I worked as a waitress to support myself, and became good friends with my coworkers. Their husbands were attending chiropractic college. I got my first adjustment from one of them and instantly felt years of stress and physical pain melt away. I felt fantastic and fell in love with chiropractic care.
The impact it had on me changed my life.
While finishing my undergrad in prep for attending Los Angeles College of Chiropractic, I became certified in massage therapy and quickly became very busy and successful in that work. My strength and good physical condition enabled me to assist even the most "buff" and muscular men, (deep tissue), while my knowledge of need for gentle work enabled me to assist even the most sensitive client. I worked for two years in my practice before attending Los Angeles College of Chiropractic, and supported my self with my weekly massage clients.
I attended Emperors College of Traditional Chinese Medicine during the last six months of my curriculum at LACC, and continued it until I moved to Colorado in 1994. In Colorado, I completed that element of my education with an extensive course in medical acupuncture and practiced it until my return to California in 2003.
After I graduated from LACC, I became certified in Upledger CranioSacral Therapy - 1994. I immediately connected with the therapy. In the years since then, I have seen hundreds of people benefit and heal from my Intuitive CranioSacral therapy. Words cannot express the level of value it holds. It is an excellent and powerful tool.
Along the way, I have done signficant inner work and share now the techniques I use for stress reduction.
As a natural course of action, I completed training in Functional Medicine. It is a key tool for addressing the root cause of systemic issues such as immune problems, chronic issues, digestive distress and more. Functional Medicine provides real answers from highest level lab testing which one will not find in medicine.
My education and experience enables me to assist comprehensive holistic care in my practice.
