I thank my lucky stars daily that my mom brought Kelly Battiston into my life. Kelly is a holistic body and energy therapist and owns her own practice, Align and Flow, in Kansas City. Not only is Kelly one of the kindest, most thoughtful individuals, but it’s also evident that she has a true gift.
As I mentioned in the first post of this SourcePoint blog series, Kelly introduced me to this practice, and she helped facilitate enormous changes in my life. If you’re lucky enough to live close to Kelly, check out her website, and I encourage you to schedule an appointment and witness this magic for yourself!
Kelly is a Licensed Massage Therapist and has 20 years of tissue and body therapy experience. She discovered an interest in Rolfing, which led her back to Boulder to become a Certified Rolfer in 2007. Rolfing is a similar form of alternative medicine which includes more physical adjustments and manipulation. Kelly now dedicates much of her time to SourcePoint Therapy, where helping clients energetically and intuitively comes naturally to her.
While I’m not able to return to Kansas City to see Kelly as often as I’d like, we continue to stay in touch, and she allowed me to pick her brain on everything SourcePoint-related. Below is our Q&A to help unravel this healing, and at times mysterious, practice.
Tell us a bit about SourcePoint’s history and the theory behind the practice.
“The two instructors, who are husband and wife, Donna Thomson and Bob Schrei are the ones that helped bring forth the information of SourcePoint. They don’t claim they created it, it’s always been here and available to us, they just helped bring the information forward again.
They both had quite a vast background in the healing arts, sciences and spiritually, all of which helped bring about the unfolding of SourcePoint.
Bob, at the time, was a Rolfer when a client he was working with couldn’t get better. Bob couldn’t seem to understand why the work wouldn’t take and hold, and yet in others it was effective. He brought the question to his wife who is an intuitive, and she would channel answers to him.
She slowly revealed specific points that helped contain the template of health. This includes the information that helps to sustain physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. It took them 10 years to receive the information about this energetic map and practice it on clients before they finally started teaching it to others.
SourcePoint Therapy works with points in the human energy field that connect the physical body directly to the blueprint of health. By helping connect to these points, we help to restore the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels too.”
Explain your personal journey with SourcePoint as a practitioner.
“In my own experience as a practitioner, I find the work to be incredibly helpful to my clients. It varies for each client, but whether they come in for physical, mental, emotional issues or spiritual help, a common thread would be that of hope.
People find relief not only in the problem they presented, but also with issues that they gave up on and didn’t even bother to mention in our consultation. They also typically walk away with an experience that leaves them feeling lighter, more calm and a deeper sense of connection to themselves and the outer world.”
Alignment takes place in big ways and small and helps to bring them forward into their fullest potential. It’s quite the joy and honor to observe the shifts in a client!”
How many practitioners are there globally?
“There are around 1,000 people in the world that have taken the courses in SourcePoint Therapy. Not all are practicing practitioners though, so that number is even less!”
Are there common characteristics between practitioners?
Donna Thomson took the reins on this question, as she meets and works with all SourcePoint practitioners personally.
“My observation on common characteristics of people who study and practice SourcePoint:
- They are deeply committed to healing work, for themselves, for others, and willing to go deeply into their own healing in order to be of benefit to others.
- They intuitively have an awareness, perhaps even from childhood, that there is more to the universe than meets the eye. They want to explore the many dimensions of consciousness, energy and healing the universe holds.
- They are highly sensitive people.
- They are creative people able to think “outside the box” and they want to express their creativity.
- They want to bring greater awareness to their lives.
- They have an innate spiritual sensitivity and want to grow spiritually.
- They are compassionate, caring people who sincerely want to bring healing to this world and others.
- Many have an innate gift for healing and just need a framework and structure to work within.
- Most have studied many modalities and use them all skillfully.”
What medical conditions might this therapy be helpful for?
“I feel the autoimmune community would be a great group to help. I tend to have a space in my heart for that group, because I had to go through it myself and have found so much amazing help with my own issues.
I think the autoimmune world has a lot of symptoms that can be shifted and helped tremendously, I feel there are just a bunch of imbalances that need to be cleared and restored. There are a lot of answers here for them. The clients I have that fall into this category have been truly blown away by this work.”
Who would the ideal candidate be to begin SourcePoint Therapy?
“The ideal client is anyone who wants to feel better! It’s the individual that is hopeful for a higher quality of life than maybe what they are experiencing. They can sense that there is a way through the illness, pain, mental state or disconnection that has bogged them down. They are the seekers that believe there is a better way to feel, live and be.” — Kelly Battiston
