Cole Cottin - 785.832.1720 (o), colecottin@gmail.com

Cole Cottin utilizes a heart-centered, “listening approach” to Hellerwork Structural Integration that includes both deep and subtle touch as well as facilitated movement repatterning and awareness dialogue. She partners with clients to alleviate chronic tension and stress and cultivate greater balance, alignment, and vitality in body, mind, and spirit. Cole believes anyone at any stage of life can benefit from this work. In adolescence, Structural Integration helped her recover from chronic fatigue syndrome, tendonitis, and injuries to her jaw and tailbone. It has since helped her heal hiking-related nerve and ankle injuries, multiple traumas, and the amazing, but structurally-altering, experience of giving birth twice. Inspired by how integrative bodywork helped her instantly bounce back from childbirth, in 2015 Cole enrolled in the 16-month, 1,025 hour Hellerwork training program. In 2016, she completed two additional trainings in Craniosacral Therapy techniques. Cole is proud to be the first to offer the Hellerwork method of Structural Integration in her home state of Kansas!

After graduating from the University of Kansas in 2001, Holly used a combination of bodywork, acupuncture, and dietary changes to heal her organs and become healthier and more vital. After a childhood of compromised health, Holly was excited to discover how profoundly alternative health care and lifestyle changes reduced her pain, improved her energy, and helped her resolve emotional and psychological stresses. She soon entered into massage therapy training with the intent of later becoming a Rolfer, which she did in 2008. She is also the owner of Kinetikos Bodywork Therapy. She lives with her husband, Brett Stoppel, and their three children, Evy Krebs, Hazel Stoppel, and Emerson Stoppel.

About Our Name and Your Health

Kinetikos is the Greek word for moving or putting into motion. The proper functioning of our body is dependent upon so much internal motion--blood and lymph flow, nerve impulses, muscle and connective tissue movement, and more. All of this internal motion makes our external motions possible--we can walk, drink water, fight an infection, and respond with lightning reflexes.

But over time, our body and all of its systems accumulate bits of damage from everyday living and occasionally suffer from injury that is structurally traumatic to our body. This causes our internal motions to become less well coordinated, and subsequently, we experience a variety of health problems from aching backs to anxiety to insomnia. Many health problems that we face as we age are caused by, or aggravated by, the body's structural problems. It is our goal to help bring your muscles, connective tissue, bones, nervous system, and organs back to a state in which all of your body's movements, internal and external, are smooth and efficient and provide you with optimal health.
