Casey Emmerich - Lymphatic Therapist
785.766.4561 (c), caseymemmerich@gmail.com

Casey became aware of the value of lymph therapy and the need of a Lawrence-area practitioner when a past surgery left her with lymphedema. Having developed a passion for working one-on-one in health and wellness fields through her 22 years as a dental hygienist, she decided to pursue lymph training herself so she could provide this service to her community. It matched her desire to expand her career toward a holistic practice, one with endless potential for continuous education. Casey quickly learned to appreciate the lymph system's role in our health and wellness, and the ways in which it can become impaired. In addition to her hands-on therapy, which directly and immediately supports and boosts the lymph system's function, Casey also provides her clients with guidance, support, and the tools to clear their organs and nourish their immune system through dietary and lifestyle changes. She is certified to work with clients that have lymphedema and is a teaching assistant through the Chikly Institute where she received her training. Casey has lived in Lawrence since 1983 and spends her free time with her children, Cienna, Indiana, and Gabe. To schedule with Casey, click here.

Cole Cottin - Certified Hellerwork Practitioner & CranioSacral Therapist
785.832.1720 (o), colecottin@gmail.com

Cole Cottin’s heart-centered “listening approach” to bodywork and movement education draws from the wisdom and techniques of both Hellerwork™ Structural Integration and CranioSacral Therapy. Her path to this work began in adolescence, when similar hands-on therapies helped her resolve traumatic injuries to the jaw and tailbone and end her long-standing battle with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Inspired by how integrative bodywork helped her instantly bounce back postpartum, in 2015 Cole enrolled in the 1,025 hour Hellerwork™ training program and began studying CranioSacral Therapy through the Upledger Institute. Cole now applies what she’s learned to facilitate whole person healing for clients struggling with pain, trauma, stress, or (as she likes to call it) “the human condition.” Her work gently supports the release of stored tension, energy, and emotions in the body’s tissues through contact with the largest organ of perception: Fascia. Cole offers wide-ranging depths of touch, as appropriate, for anyone at any stage of life – from infants to elders, parents to teens, athletes to administrators. Curious?

Holly Krebs - Certified Rolfer©, Visceral Manipulation Practitioner, Neural Mobilization Practitioner, & CranioSacral Therapist
785.832.1720 (o), hollykrebs@gmail.com

Holly is a Certified Rolfer© and also practices Visceral Manipulation, Craniosacral Therapy, and Neural Mobilization. In her multi-systems approach to bodywork, Holly weaves between all the tissues of the body—fascia, organs, nerves, bones, brain, fluids, muscles, and glands. She also explores beyond physical structures to behavioral, lifestyle, emotional, energetic, and thought patterns, which can limit us from living more freely and fully. Holly empowers her clients to make long-lasting transformations by educating them; improving awareness of their bodies' messages, shifting their relationship with pain, and providing logistical support for lifestyle changes. Holly completed her Rolfing training in 2008, and she also holds undergraduate degrees with honors in American studies and sociology from KU. She runs Kinetikos Bodywork Therapy, and with her husband, Brett Stoppel, purchased the Vitality Health Collective building in 2016 to create a space for collaboration amongst holistic health care practitioners. She and Brett live in Lawrence with their three children – Evy, Hazel, and Emerson. Holly is not currently seeking new clients and recommends her officemates, Risa Kearn, Kalen Richardson, and Cole Cottin for Rolfing and Hellerwork services. To schedule with Holly, click here.

Kalen Richardson - Certified Rolfer©
620.222.1018 (c), kalen@stillrolfing.com

Kalen attended the Rolf Institute in Boulder, CO, after receiving an MFA from KU. Following a lifetime of dance and yoga, she aspired to study a new way of perceiving, contacting, and experiencing the body. While attaining her Rolfing™ Certification, Kalen practiced under, and traded extensively with, the practitioners at Kinetikos Bodywork Therapy, allowing her various approaches of study to marinate with her ongoing yoga practice into what continues to become her unique perception and touch. The Rolf Institute offered her the holistic method she had set her sights on, one she could invest herself in deeply and that meets a spectrum of goals. Kalen still finds the greatest benefit in the continuous learning from sharing work with other alternative therapists and through working with the unique experience of each client. Kalen is committed to the journey through the energetic and esoteric possibilities of her work, and coming from a family of farmers in Winfield and Caldwell, KS, she also has affinity for those wishing for ease, mobility, and alleviation from pain. She sees structural bodywork as beneficial to every body, at any age, and with any level of activity. She believes an individual’s psyche – made up of the inseparable mind-body – should be an infinite exploration! To schedule with Kalen, click here.

Susie Roman - CranioSacral Therapist
785.231.8474 (c), susiesroman@gmail.com

With over 10 years of experience in bodywork, Susie chose to focus on CranioSacral Therapy. After extensive study of muscle behavior and development, she began to see the significant role of fascia in restoring health. This discovery led her to CranioSacral Therapy in 2011 and, after experiencing first-hand the dramatic change in her overall functionality, she developed a passion for this work. The dural membranes of the skull and spinal column are also the root of the entire fascial system which, when inflamed or strained, can greatly impact both physical and cognitive functional. CranioSacral Therapy directly addresses these structures to support restoration from countless maladies. As Susie has discovered, “the fascia is truly the place where the mind and body meet.” Susie is most interested in the application of CranioSacral Therapy in the field of labor and delivery, pediatrics, and geriatrics. Susie received her education through, and is a Teaching Assistant for, the Upledger Institute, an institution with a history of rigorous clinical research and application, to ensure the highest quality of training available.

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.
