Kasa Healing Inception and Philosophy
Massage therapy and Reiki are evidenced-based healing arts that support holistic health and increase our quality of life and connections to our true selves. My name is Yokasta, and I am committed to transcendent massage therapy, Reiki, Holistic Consultations, co-creation of ceremony and ritual, facilitation of sacred healing circles, and whole being-centered work and service that promotes multifaceted well-being. My journey began as a child who was truly intrigued by nature, the natural cycles of life, metaphysics, and human nature. I expanded upon this during my teenage years when my studies and communal relationships led me to a profound appreciation of the resilience of my family, community, and ancestors; this guided me to an embodied understanding of how self-healing and community healing tools, practices, and knowledge were intentionally and creatively utilized to facilitate socio-cultural and spiritual nurturing, transformation, and regeneration, and as a form of social resistance to disconnection and oppression.
In 2006 I had deep insights into the interconnected nature of who I am (who we all are) and where I stand and made choices leading me to become a holistic health and Reiki practitioner and massage therapist. I love every angle of the work I do and being of service to you; for it continues to amaze me, inspire me, transform me, and nurture me at every level of my being. I am perceptive to each individual, family, and organization I work with and their intentions for wellness and healing, this requires deep listening. From here, I customize healing sessions and practices collaboratively with the person or group I am serving, and through the integrative implementation of all my learnings, training, and creative wisdom.
Using therapeutic and holistic approaches to achieve optimum health and well-being is not a luxury, it is a necessity and universal right. Together we can embrace awareness, breathe into relaxation, and tap into our inner wisdom to maintain the balance and harmony we all deserve.
