Karin Siebold, BS, LMBT, CST-D, MLD-C
Karin obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Veterinary Medical Technology from Wilson College in Chambersburg, PA. She practiced as a Licensed Veterinary Technician for seven years before leaving the profession to raise a family of three great children.
After several years of working as a Certified General Real Estate Appraiser with Siebold Group Consulting, LLC, Karin chose to return to the health care field. In 2009 she began the first of many courses in CranioSacral Therapy, through the Upledger Institute. In 2011 she graduated from the College of Wilmington and obtained a North Carolina Massage and Bodywork License, and in 2013 she completed the Certification requirements in CranioSacral Therapy through the Upledger Institute. In April 2016 she completed requirements for the Diplomate CranioSacral Therapy Certification through the Upledger Institute, the highest level of certification available.
In 2013 Karin completed the BioAquatic Explorations: CranioSacral Therapy class and the BioAquatics Advanced Dolphin Assisted Therapy class, and participates as a primary therapist in the
Dolphin Assisted Therapy programs in Freeport.
She has completed classes in the Visceral Manipulation curriculum through the Barral Institute, and classes in the Lymphatic Drainage Therapy curriculum through the Chikly Institute. She continues to study and practice Touch of Health Kinesiology, Myokinesthetics (a soft tissue treatment geared to impact the nervous system) and the Masterson method of horse massage.
Karin's most recent studies include Integrated Manual Therapy and Orthopedic Massage for the upper and lower body, and Certification in the Vodder Method of Manual Lymphatic Drainage.
Currently Karin has a private practice at the Southport Healing Arts Center located in Southport, NC, and she spends a few days each month on Bald Head Island at the Island Retreat Spa. She provides a variety of services including CranioSacral Therapy, Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Visceral Manipulation, Therapeutic Massage, Orthopedic Massage, Touch of Health Kinesiology and Myokinesthetic Therapy. She travels to provide services to Equine clients and College and Professional Athletes. Karin anticipates focusing her attention on injuries and illnesses involving the head and neck, while integrating the whole body, through continued studies and experience in these areas. She and her husband, Jeff Siebold, an author of mystery fiction novels, enjoy travelling for leisure and to see clients nationwide.
"In 2009 I sat in church week after week, hearing prayer requests for healing. I committed to making a career change that would allow me to help. CranioSacral Therapy offered me the ability to touch people physically, emotionally and spiritually. My dream and intention, with Gods help, is to get treatment to everyone who needs CST, despite finances or situations." Peace, Karin
