about Krista Kobel
Hi, I’m Krista Kobel! It is with great passion to provide support and bring healing to people who have been through any life stressor(s). My Wellness Practice is available both in person and virtually knowing that no single approach is the right one for every individual. I am a certified Functional Nutrition Counselor, Reiki Master, Yoga, and Pilates Instructor. My Nutrition Practice focuses on bridging the gap between clients and their doctors by taking a functional approach, focusing on root cause resolution, and building therapeutic relationships.
I’ve always been interested in nutrition and wellness and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Dietetics from Ball State University in 1995. I went on to marriage and being blessed with two beautiful boys. I was a stay-at-home mom for many years and kept a work-life balance while instructing a variety of fitness classes and wellness programs in my community. Fast forward to when my dad was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer; I experienced and watched firsthand how easy it is to fall subject to conventional medicine’s mis-management. Additionally, in 2019, my son was diagnosed with Crohns autoimmune disease. It drove me crazy that there were large gaps between appointments, not a lot of information available on nutrition for either illness, or how to help manage it. The physical and emotional tolls traditional protocols can take on the body can be very debilitating to the client and caretaker. Conventional medical doctors are experts in what they specialize in, and, in many circumstances, are not equipped to empathize with or understand the whole person.
Throughout my own experience with different health crises, I was led to explore alternative treatments with the possibility of healing oneself. While open to any and all healing modalities, I found Functional Nutrition, Reiki energy healing, and movement to be beneficial in many ways. All 3 modalities are about aligning the body into a receptive healing state. As we consume nutrients, our bodies absorb it and provide us with energy. As we move our bodies and increase mobility, we align and feel more connected to our bodies. Reiki Light Touch Therapy relaxes and puts our bodies into a parasympathetic state. When the body is in this state, there is a reduction in the perception of pain, and the immune system increases while inflammation decreases.
Having my own profound experience with my first Reiki session led me to pursue my passion of sharing it with others. Being the facilitator of this universal energy is truly amazing! I encourage everyone to have their own experience and decide for yourself. I’ve also completed a very reputable Functional Nutrition program led by a team of Nutritionists who continue to give me the skills needed to provide individualized treatment to my clients. My love for yoga started in 2005 when I became a YogaFit Instructor. Today, I have my 200hrs through Yoga Alliance, and am a certified Balanced Body Pilates instructor. I find the practice of both yoga and pilates complement one another while continuing to positively influence my mind/body connection. My desire to align and manage my own healing has led me to offer all modalities and put into practice a holistic approach to wellness and put self care in the front seat of healthcare.
We are all bio-individuals with different needs. By offering a gentle and compassionate therapeutic approach, my goal is to gain trust, meet my clients where they are, and walk alongside them in their healing journey. The breakthroughs, courage, and the commitment from clients is the reason I do what I do. Helping you to better understand your health and to empower you to take charge of your own mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing is my reward! Transforming your health is like uncorking all the energy you didn’t even know existed within you! A naturopathic approach to your wellbeing helps each one of us to align to our full potential.
Let’s meet online and keep the conversation going!
