Positive energy and healing at Absolute Wholeness Massage & Wellness

By From page MED18 | September 28, 2012

Placerville’s “Favorite Place to Get a Massage” in 2011 and 2012 is not only a great place to de-stress, it is also there to help those seeking healing from injuries and accidents.

Absolute Wholeness Massage & Wellness is staffed by skilled, competent therapists who assist clients in healing from injuries, car accidents and more. Their motto is “An Integrative Approach to Mind, Body and Spirit.” All three aspects are balanced into each session.

Established in 2011 by Leela Kelley, this business has met with much success from the beginning.

“I was always drawn to helping people in whatever ways I could,” Kelley said. “When I was a teenager in high school, I became very drawn to helping people relieve aches and pains physically and was always massaging people’s shoulders and backs in class. I went to massage school in 1998 and have been in practice for the past 14 years.”

Kelley wanted to offer more services to her clients, especially those who wanted alternative healing.

“Last year, I decided to expand my business from just me to creating a bodywork and wellness center designed to offer not only bodywork services, but also education on health and services in different alternative forms of healing for people.”

Absolute Wholeness now employs five skilled therapists who bring a wide variety of therapies to the community. Specialties offered include:

• Myofascial Release Therapy;
• Deep Tissue Massage;
• Trigger Point Therapy;
• Cranial Sacral Therapy;
• Lymphatic Drainage;
• Sports Massage and more.

“The purpose of this center is to have a place where people who need help, can come and get help,” Kelley said. “We specialize in clients who have had injuries, car accidents, are severely stressed and need to de-stress and be cared for, and people who simply need to have a ‘tune up’ in their bodies. As with many other modalities such as chiropractic, some type of regular care is best for the human body. We at Absolute Wholeness feel a monthly massage is a good ‘maintenance’ for the body. It keeps circulation flowing well, endorphins activated throughout the body (especially important in the stress filled world we live in today), and helps to keep your immune systems strong.”
Kelley believes that clients have the right to pursue better health and feeling well.

“I’d like people to know that you have the power within you to get better with whatever you are suffering from,” she said. “As long as you are willing to do your part, we are here to help you not only know about that power, but engage it towards your healing. Let us help you feel better. If you feel strong, healthy and happy, it helps all those around you do the same. Let’s put positive energy out into the world — in good health, Absolute Wholeness Massage & Wellness.”

Absolute Wholeness Massage & Wellness is located at 347 Main Street, Suite B (above Robinson’s Pharmacy) in Placerville. Hours are Monday through Saturday by appointment. It is closed Sunday. Visit or call 530-621-2420.
