I’m Kammaleathahh and I love to help people feel better.
My education emphasizes that the physical, cultural, social, and emotional elements find their way into our tissue, our neuromuscular system, effecting how we move, express, and hold ourselves in space. I began Sustainable Health Choices (SHC) with Miriam Biber in 2007, emphasizing the connection between the health of communities and individuals.
I graduated from Guilford College in 2005 with a B.A. in Anthropology and Peace and Conflict Studies. I became licensed in massage therapy in 2006.
I emphasize four main things in my practice:
1. Listening. Something I’ve observed can get lost in healthcare these days. I believe listening is an art, and this is what will ultimately always provide a solution and treatment plan. Listening is done with ears, eyes, heart, and hands.
2. I alleviate pain or imbalances, primarily in the soft tissue, in order to help an individual grow out of patterns that impede them physically, emotionally, or mentally. I use a variety of methods to create a customized treatment (myofascial release, acu-points, cupping, trigger point therapy, active engagement techniques, Reiki, and intuitive listening).
3. I teach preventive information to support people to live more independently, with greater knowledge of their bodies.
4. I offer compassionate support through massage to mothers and infants. I have received Doula training, and I feel grateful to have attended a number of births.
I focus on 12 myofasical lines of connection throughout the body. In terms of evaluating the pattern that is happening in your body, I work with these 12 lines and how your joints are positioned relative to each other so that I work smarter with what you present. I practice the kind of work that shows how the area that is screaming at you for attention (your shoulder, for instance) might not be the source of your discomfort. The pain in your shoulder could be from a shift in your hip or a tilt in your foot.
Since bodies change, the session will always be customized to YOU, in the present. You get the benefit of receiving undivided attention to what you would like help with in the session.
I have worked closely with acupuncturists at a primary health clinic (The Lotus Center) in North Carolina. This is where I was trained in cupping, a Chinese Medicine technique that is beneficial for pain relief and moving toxins out of soft tissue. I learned a lot about Yin/Yang theory, meridians, and various acupressure points. Overall Chinese medicine philosophy positively augmented the spiritual foundation I grew up with and influences my massage practice.
