LMBT, YT-250, Completion Process Certified Practitioner, 3rd Degree Reiki Channel
Kaleigh has been a licensed Massage and Bodywork Therapist since 2014. Before and throughout massage school she began consciously working with subtle energies through the practice of Reiki. Because she knows there is much more to a person than just the body, her style is an infusion of therapeutic bodywork and relaxation massage dovetailed with subtle energetic techniques. This seamless flow works to relax the mind and subsequently unravel the body. Think of her massage as a sort of kinesthetic hypnosis for the nervous system. Once the mind is relaxed and “out of the way” the body can begin to heal itself. In every session her goal is to transport you to a deep state of relaxation so the body can work it’s magic.
Like most of us, I have worn many hats in my life. Professionally, I was a Therapeutic Recreation Specialist from 2007-2017. I specialized in adaptive sports, community re-entry, and independence through adaptive equipment. It was through this service to others that I began to understand the benefits of massage for pain management. It inspired me in such a way, that I decided to become a Massage Therapist. The Center for Massage and Natural Health, located in downtown Asheville, helped me build a strong foundation for massage in 2013. I strive to educate, empower, and help others to recognize the endless possibilities of investing in their health NOW! It is never too late! It is my hope that I can aide in helping your body to move with ease, to relax, and unwind. We are all walks of life that ultimately share the commonality of nurturing our bodies and our spirit. It is my hope that I can help you in that journey through compassion, knowledge, and gratitude.
Conscious Alignment with Alexander Technique
Chronic back pain and the desire to feel truly at home in my own skin led me to take lessons and train to be a teacher of the Alexander Technique. This simple and proven education in the “how” of coordinating body-mind increases ease of movement by redirecting excessive tension into useful energy. A common result is relief from pain and distress caused by everyday habits, accompanied by a simultaneous increase in awareness/sensitivity while reducing reactivity. I completed the 3-year, 1600-hour training at The Alexander Educational Center in Berkeley, CA and have been teaching individuals and groups since 2009.
