An East Coast native, Kailas relocated in 2009 to Los Angeles after a three year journey that took him across the US twelve times to complete his studies in advanced healing techniques. Once here, he has worked in private practice putting to work his skills and experience for poeple of all walks of life.
Kailas completed a 200 hour externship at the Upledger Institute, providing CranioSacral Therapy to patients recovering from severe brain and spinal cord injuries, paralysis, spasticity, speech impediments, and musculoskeletal issues. At the Institute, Kailas had the privilege of working with Dr. John Upledger during his rounds at the clinic.
Kailas also recently completed a 500 hour training program in Ayurvedic massage (Abhyanga), Marma therapy and Pancha Karma therapy with Drs. Light and Bryan Miller.
Radiating an intellectual light that is suffused with a deeply compassionate nature, Kailas brings together the healing techniques of east and west.
In 1985, as a young man of 20, Kailas began a study of yoga and meditation which built the foundation for his bodywork practice. The energy and experience he brings to the massage table includes many hours of sitting at the feet of spiritual scholars, studying Sanskrit, Vedanta and volunteering his talents in charitable work.
Today, Kailas is a certified CranioSacral Therapist, and a certified Ayurvedic Consultant specializing in Ayurvedic Massage. He is nationally certified in therapeutic massage, and is a licensed massage therapist. Kailas is also a practitioner member of the National Ayurvedic Medical Association. He is currently Staff CranioSacral Therapist at Trillium Chiropractic and Sports Medicine in Calabasas, California, near Los Angeles.
Kailas is also a talented writer. He has engagingly described many profound experiences he had while studying Ayurveda in his website, Ayurveda By Kailas.
Kailas believes that the doorway to healing is trust – a profound truth he embraced wholeheartedly after discovering CranioSacral Therapy. In his article CranioSacral Calling, he explains how his becoming a Certified CranioSacral Therapist was actually a training in how to trust the underlying power and grace of healing.
A man of many talents, Kailas has a gallery of his photography at www.photosbykailas.com. He also has extensive skill and experience in many other areas, such as graphic design, videography, marketing and product development, Ayurvedic vegetarian cooking, public speaking and conducting workshops, and project management.
Currently 44 years old, and in his third career, Kailas has placed his “healing hands” at the service of the Los Angeles community, with a sincere hope to share the grace with which his teachers have blessed him.
At each step of the holistic Healing Journey you make a commitment to yourself.
I honor that place in you where the commitment to heal overcomes all the obstacles in your path, and turns pain into wisdom and poison into power.
Whether it’s a chronic or “hopeless” condition – or a suprise that suddenly comes with misfortune or age, you have the power to heal and grow in miraculous ways.
Don’t take “no” for an answer. Don’t get lost in the bureaucracy of a hospital or insurance system. There is a light at the end of that tunnel, and it is your light.
The techniques, knowledge, experience and wisdom required may come from many sources around you – just as the earth itself supports all our hungers through food of every flavor.
As a healer, I know this to be true. For me, it all started with healing myself of a broken elbow in 24 hours. And since then, I have consistently healed myself from a variety of health issues.
I met Kailas on December 31st, 2010, at the LA Yoga sponsored New Year’s Eve Community Extravaganze. It was truely a memorable night on several levels, and also because the Luminaries performed my favorite song “Peace”. Kailas was standing at the LA Yoga booth and we struck a conversation that was, in my opinion, impressively long and deep considering the circumstance. I am looking forward the connecting with him again.
