Austen Tate
Cranio-Sacral Therapis
Holistic Health Practitioner

Austen Tate has over 15 years of experience in the body work and manual therapy arena. She is skilled in a variety of techniques that inform her cranio-sacral therapy. She has a specialty in pre-natal and post-natal care. And babies love her. At the office Sylvia Skefich, DC, Austen has helped everyone from men and women in their seventies and eighties to the wee little babes.

Austen was “tapped” by Dr. Skefich to join the practice being that a position had opened up, and Dr. Skefich vividly recalled Austen from Dr. Skefich’s previous cranio-sacral therapy classes. Austen had the special quality of touch that few have, and which is necessary for an excellent cranio-sacral practitioner to have.

Her history includes work experience in spas and alternative health care settings around the Santa Cruz greater region, from Santa Cruz CORE Fitness and Rehab physical therapy offices, to Nourish spa. She trained at Heartwood Institute at Garberville, CA in 2007, and then later went through the Holistic Healthcare Practitioner program (being the youngest person to have graduated at that time). Among the therapies Austen has studied are Swedish and Deep Tissue Massage, Shiatsu, Polarity-Chakra Counseling, Prenatal Massage, Mayan Abdominal Massage, Traditional Mexican Massage, and Cranio-Sacral Therapy, the cranio-sacral which she practices at this office.

A quality that is plain to anyone who works with Austen is that she has a deep “spirit” aspect to the work she offers; Austen has volunteered at various healing clinics throughout California. And she has studied, trained in, and been mentored in the ways of traditional, earth-based lineages. These healing traditions have been passed through the generations from teacher to student. These lineages reflect in her personal qualities of “presence" and kindness.

Austen continues to train in Dr. Skefich’s specific cranio-sacral therapy techniques. In Austen, Dr. Skefich has a qualified, competent team member, who offers unique skills, talents, and insights. She can be booked independent from any chiropractic visits, or even as a good alternate choice to seeing Dr. Skefich herself.
