I'm excited you are here!
Ready to embark on a journey of awareness,
self discovery and transformation!
I am incredibly passionate about the healing capacity of our bodies; I learned firsthand through BCST to experience my body in a new way and trust it's inner knowledge. I became interested in Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy as a result of my own health challenges and I have found both understanding and relief from this healing therapy.
After being diagnosed with my second neurological condition I decided to look for new answers to solve the chronic pain I was experiencing. I started on the path to a deep and enduring transformation. My body is now communicating in a balanced productive way that leaves me feeling energized and calm. I have greater depth of resilience and ease in managing day to day stress while enjoying new mental clarity. I no longer experience ruminating thought patterns or depressive episodes, I'm present and meditate deeply free from pain. My body has transformed with the release of long held stress and trauma.
I completed my formal BSCT training through Body Intelligence in 2013 in Canada and Australia. While my work is informed and influenced by the teachings of Myrna Martin, MN, RCC, RCST® in pre and perinatal psychology courses and process workshops. Which provide me with deeper levels of awareness, directly related to early patterning through prenatal, birth and attachment processes. I have also trained in Elemental Chi Kung, a form of movement exercise to connect deeply with the body and the flow of Chi.
When I'm not being a BCST therapist I enjoy spending time with my husband, children, grandson and my dog Boomer. I love walking by the river collecting unique heart shaped rocks, meditating, cooking, ice caving and obi wrapping.

My experience with Jill was more than I imagined it would be. The lasting benefits I have enjoyed from Jill’s practice opened me up to another world of healing. Not only was it the best quality treatment I have had for an injury, it was the most efficient. In addition, I had been newly struggling with anxiety and the gracious and gentle treatment gave me the physical experience of the anxiety lifting. The experience was professional, extremely interesting and effective. I recommend it to everyone I know.
Jill is my healer of choice. She has a gift for what she does and has elevated this gift by continually learning about her craft through professional courses and workshops, through her personal journey of self-discovery, and through her work with her clients. Jill has an extraordinary capacity for compassion and acceptance of her clients, which, I believe, allows for greater healing.
I have intractable migraines and a deteriorated spine and have tried many kinds of healers: massage therapists, physiotherapists, chiropractors, acupuncturists, as well as medical solutions. The most helpful of these has been craniosacral therapy. I have tried several craniosacral therapists and have found Jill to be one of the best. I can recommend her without hesitation and with enthusiasm.
My experience with Jill Stewart's care, demeanour, skill and touch, and the space she creates before, during and following a session have been lifelines; nurturing experiences, stabilizing, and grounding for me in times of deep distress. Her caring and knowledge are expressed in her touch and her voice. She has a soothing, heart-centred, calming presence. She is thoughtful in her supportiveness, and draws from her own experience as she provides a safe space. She creates a trusting environment; she is gentle and moves slowly, listening to the client's bodily expressions as well as their stories. With Jill I feel listened to, she is attentive to what's presenting for me, but also offers things that have proved helpful and supportive which I would not have considered. I find her ongoing commitment and exploration of her own health and patterns improves her access and resonance with my own system. I recommend her often to people, in particular those who seek a heart-oriented practitioner with a gentle touch.
