Bio
Keith Economidis is a graduate of Southwest Acupuncture College (SWAC), where he completed a 3000 hour Masters degree in Oriental Medicine. While the main focus in acupuncture was more ‘TCM’ or ‘Traditional Chinese Medicine’, Keith also took electives & clinics in Japanese styles as well. While the end result of both styles are similar, Japanese techniques typically utilize thinner gauge needles and less vigorous manipulation of the needles. This makes for a less invasive & less painful session while still achieving nice results. SWAC’s curriculum also included extensive courses in Chinese Herbology & a variety of Health & Biomedicine related course work in Western Pathology, Anatomy, Physiology, and more. The program included introductory courses in Shiatsu, Tui Na, Cupping, & Gua Sha.

Keith was certified as a Rolfer® in 1997 by the Rolf Institute of Boulder, CO during the 700 hour basic course. He later completed 300 more hours of continuing education and Advanced coursework. He was certified as an Advanced Rolfer© in November 2001. Keith has been a Massage Therapist in private practice since 1993. He graduated from the Cayce/ Reilly school of Massotherapy, located in Virginia Beach, VA in April ’04. This extensive 600hour program was based on the unique integration of physiotherapy and transpersonal studies. During the first semester he learned a specific protocol, and in the second semester he had courses in advanced techniques, Sports massage, Swedish, Reflexology, and Hydrotherapy. Simultaneously he attended 180 hours in Jin Shin Do Acupressure workshops. Keith went on to attend workshops in Reiki, Neuromuscular Therapy, Cranio-Sacral Therapy, Applied Kinesiology, & Visceral Manipulation.

Prior to massage school, Keith attended & graduated from Radford University. His Major was Physical Education with a concentration in Sports Medicine. During this program, Keith completed a separate 1500 hour mentorship in Athletic Training.

Acupuncture literally means ‘needle piercing,’ the practice of inserting very fine needles into the skin to stimulate specific anatomic points in the body (called acupoints or acupuncture points) for therapeutic purposes.

This activates the body’s qi and promotes natural healing by enhancing recuperative power, immunity, and physical and emotional health. It can also improve overall function and well being. It is a safe, painless and effective treatment for many different health conditions, disorders, and a wide variety of medical problems.

Rolfing® is a holistic system of soft tissue manipulation and movement education which releases chronic stress/tension patterns and restores the body to its healthiest and most efficient alignment.
