Learn More about Your Therapist, Kelley C. Studholme, CMT
As the primary massage therapist at the Kneaded Touch of Professional Massage, I have served the Woodbridge Community as a VA Certified Massage Therapist for the past 25 years. Following my academic studies at George Mason University, I attended the Potomac Massage Training Institute (PMTI) and completed the professional massage therapy program. I have been an active member of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) since graduating PMTI in 1988. In addition to being a massage therapist, I am a Reiki Master; and, I have studied at the Vanati School of Energy Healing and practice Cellular Expansion & Healing.
Massage Therapy Techniques
Massage therapy for relaxation and/or pain relief is the bulk of what I've done over the years, and I certainly want to continue to serve my community in this way; however, over the past five years, I've also been studying some techniques that fall into the category of Energy Medicine. Energy medicine goes beyond treating muscle tension to focus on balancing body, mind, emotions, and spirit.
Diverse Healing Modalities
All of these healing modalities understand and use the concepts of Quantum mechanics. One of the concepts being, "the observer affects the observed". So, by being present and observing, "what needs balancing" or "what is ready to shift", changes will begin in a person's physiology, or a person's perception of life, or a person's belief system and healing will occur; sometimes subtly, sometimes dramatically.
Formal Training & Independent Studies
Some of the Energy Medicine courses I've taken in the last five years include Craniosacral Therapy I & II, Donna Eden's introductory workshops: EM101 & EM 102, BodyTalk and Accunect Connect. But most recently I have completed the first 4 levels of Touch for Health. All of these courses have given me a broader perspective on healing modalities and how our bodies heal energetically.
Aside from the formal training, I have independently studied health, nutrition, Bach Flower Remedies & Essential Oils for more than 20 years. I have lived in Woodbridge, VA with my husband, daughter, and two sons since 1986.
