About

Ms. Keifrider likes to describe herself as an adventurer, whether it is traveling to foreign lands to study deep in the jungle and in the Andes with native shamans, or assisting clients in the exploration of their healing process.

Through her unique approach to the therapeutic process, licensed physical therapist and diplomate certified craniosacral therapist, Kim Keifrider seeks to address the physical needs of her patients while unveiling their underlying physiological, mental, emotional and spiritual components.

Through her 30 years as a Physical Therapist and over 29 years as a practitioner of Craniosacral Therapy, Ms. Keifrider finds that she "never ceases to be amazed at the body's cleverness in compensation for trauma and its inner wisdom in releasing injury."

Ms. Keifrider obtained a Master of Physical Therapy degree from the University of Southern California after receiving her Bachelor's degree in General Studies at Louisiana State University. Her focus is on locating the source of physical dysfunction, not merely managing the physical symptoms.

Ms. Keifrider is a Diplomate Certified craniosacral therapist and a certified presenter for the Upledger Institute's craniosacral overview and introductory courses. In addition to providing standard physical therapy treatment, ETPS microcurrent therapy, and cold laser therapy, Ms. Keifrider provides the innovative healing modalities of craniosacral therapy, myofascial release, visceral manipulation, mechanical Link, lymphatic drainage, and Neurolink (NIS). She also holds a certificate in Fundamentals of Herbal Studies.
