Choosing a Practitioner
All of our Practitioners' approach to massage is Holistic in nature, meaning we take into account The Whole You - your physical, emotional and mental well being. We blend various physical modalities such as Swedish, Deep Tissue, Myofacial and Thai - depending on your needs that day. We also incorporate a bit of energetic work into your session to create balance and overall peace of mind and spirit.
It is our belief that whatever table you find yourself on at The Whole You, you will be in good hands. Pun Intended! - in all seriousness - we encourage you to try a variety of therapists we have on staff, which is Kelly and Meredith at the moment. It is our intention to add more heart - centered practitioners this year.
I found my way to the healing arts in 2007 and shortly after graduated from the South Carolina School of Massage and Esthetics with 600 Hours. Since becoming a licensed massage therapist, I have taken numerous continuing education classes including pre & post natal massage, lymphatic drainage and myofascial release.
In addition to massage, professionally I’m a yoga teacher, as well as a sound and reiki practitioner. I enjoy integrating these practices in each individual body work session. I am passionate about assisting clients in finding their own unique path to freedom from pain and discord in their physical bodies and moving toward more peace, harmony and joy in their daily lives.
I’ve been fortunate to live here in Radford for over 15 years. Raising my family side-by-side with the love of my life, Lucas, and laying the foundations of The Whole You one day at a time, we've found this little mountain town with the New River running through it, to be the perfect place to call hOMe.
I look forward to connecting with you!
In 2019, I graduated from The Asheville School of Massage & Yoga with 675 hours. Through that program, I found my life’s purpose and an eternal love for the Healing Arts.
Presently, I practice heart-centered, client informed massage and intuitive energy healing. The physical nature of my practice is greatly influenced by a variety of modalities including: Myofascial, Trigger Point Release, Deep Tissue, Swedish and Esalen Massage. The energetic part of my practice is inspired by Reiki, Cranial Sacral and Healing Touch Therapies.
My experience as a bodyworker combined with my personal study of yoga, spirituality and mind-body medicine, has led me to believe in Transformation and a Wholeness of Being.
I hope this gives you a sense of who I am and I look forward to meeting you!
