Christine Stueve, D.PSc., PhD, ND, DMBM
I am a mom of four boys, wife and Licensed Doctor of Pastoral Science & Medicine. As a Doctor of Philosophy in Natural Medicine & Neuroscience, I have the privilege of helping my patients get to the root cause of their health challenges. I am also Board Certified in Integrative Medicine and licensed in pastoral biblically based counseling. I acquired my 1st Degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do Karate, Group Fitness Instruction, and CPR in 2002. I specialize in Neuro-Integrative & Metabolic Assessment, Herbology, Homeopathy, Detoxification, CranioSacral Therapy (CST), Integrated Applied Kinesiology, Functional Endocrinology and BioTerrain analysis. I have a deep passion to see men, women and children of all ages and athletic ability, walk in optimal health emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually. The more I study the body, cellular communication and God’s incredible design, I realize how much more there is to learn. I absolutely love what I do ~ walking alongside those who seek greater health and wellness.
I have extensive experience in working with the vital and natural healing force of the body to promote, restore and maintain health. Recognizing the uniqueness of each individual’s genetic, biochemical, structural and emotional make-up and seeking to establish the underlying cause of any health problem. Breast Cancer, ADHD, Turette’s Syndrome, Hypothyroid, Chronic Fatigue and significant hormonal imbalance drove me right into the depths of the natural health care community for healing of my son, sister and self. Healing on every level has affirmed that our bodies were designed to heal given the right nourishment and proper elimination of toxins in all forms.
I lecture frequently for universities, public and private schools, as well as churches to educate on a variety of topics including Self Defense for Women. Producing a Self Defense for Women DVD and guest speaking on KTIS were truly some past highlights ~ as well as authoring my first book “Dust to Diamonds”. I am currently working on my second publication, a clinical reference guide.
I am excited to see positive life change, personal growth and a true sense of what it means to have energy and enjoy life free from disease in those who truly seek healing in every area of their lives. I can’t wait to serve you!

Kevin Miles, NHP
Natural Health Practitioner
“When did you start doing massage?” I could answer it this way – I started with my siblings when I was about 4 years old working for quarters. I would work on the cast members in the community plays I was in growing up, learning from other massage therapists and chiropractors in the cast, gaining some invaluable skills and techniques. My belief in the possibility of expanding my skill from simply an appreciated skill to a professional work was increased in high school, when we’d line up for massage lines in choir and people fought to be in front of me. My professional career started three years ago after my college friends decided to tip me and encourage me even more. I had “regulars” asking when the next appointment could be made. I then worked at a spa where I was first introduced to life as a full time massage therapist. I realized in Massage Therapy class that I was made for this.
I graduated from Everest Institute in the field of Massage Therapy in October of 2012. My training included 770+ hours of in class lecture and “hands on” lab practice. Now I have well over 1,300 hours of hands on experience, and I am continuing my education on knowledge of the body and massage. I take a life time learning approach to my mastery of health and have many mentors for it.
People are like Muscles, willing to move towards wholeness, open to good suggestion when approached with the right balance of patience, positive influence and training. I have a high calling in a restorative ministry to the mind, body and soul. I believe in devotion to well-tuned healing practices, integrating healing and learning, through community sources, to live as stewards of our bodies in wholeness.
For a complete bio including my educational background and approach to massage therapy, simply give me a call or send me an email. I love sharing how learning massage has changed my life.
