Several years ago, Kirsten Toth saw herself in a career helping high-level athletes but the Certified Athletic Therapist says the universe had other plans. And she’s so glad it did.
“Over the last few years I have very much recognized myself as a healer,” says the K Wellness Creative owner. “I am innately drawn to help people and guide them.”
Toth’s work involves therapeutic and holistic practices, focussing on the mind-body connection and how it can be harnessed to help address issues.
Seeing herself as both a healer and a coach, Toth relies on the science of kinesiology and her base of athletic therapy which she often blends with the energetic practices of reiki and craniosacral therapy to achieve “true and deep healing.”
Sessions might include anything from the more traditional approaches like range of motion testing to something less so, like an energetic scan.
“I love to create an open space for clients to become more aware and connect with themselves on a deeper level; whether it is to help heal a physical injury, relieve chronic pain, heal past trauma or align energetic and emotional imbalances,” she says.
Clients don’t always know exactly what ails them, sometimes showing up at the inner-city studio because of an overt physical symptom, like a headache.
More often than not, that red flag is simply a sign of something more complex.
“My job as a practitioner is to guide them to seeing the full picture,” Toth says.
“I think it’s important to understand what’s going on internally.”
Toth, whose clientele includes many from the yoga, arts and music communities, feels fortunate to do the work she does. That’s especially true now, when good health and wellness is so essential to weathering the stress and challenges associated with the ongoing pandemic.
“I believe it is an opportunity for all of us to reflect on what we value, where we put our time and energy and how we ultimately view ourselves. It is my goal to help clients connect and navigate through these unknowns while guiding and supporting them in their healing journey,” she says.
