About Dr. Kelsey Klausmeyer, ND
Dr. Klausmeyer’s interest in medicine began at an early age after suffering a severe car accident. Conventional medicine saved his life but was unable to address the lingering health concerns that persisted long after the event. It was in natural medicine that Dr. Klausmeyer found solutions to the chronic conditions left from the
accident, which prompted him to pursue studies in natural medicine with a feverish devotion. Since that time he has completed massage therapy programs at two institutions (Total Health Works in Wichita, KS and Bellevue Massage School in Bellevue, WA), a bachelors of arts degree in medical anthropology and pre-med from Hampshire College, an apprenticeship in 5 Element acupuncture, certification in craniosacral therapy and a doctorate of naturopathic medicine from Bastyr University. In addition to these studies, he has attended many weekend workshops and medical conventions on various topics to offer his patients the very best medical care possible.
Central to Dr. Klausmeyer’s philosophy is to alleviate suffering and that illness is not without meaning. He takes the time to understand his patients’ stories and to help them discern meaning from sometimes difficult conditions. His goal is to empower patients to be proactive participants in their care and make healthy decisions in everyday life. He is excited to get to know you and work with you to develop a treatment plan that meets your needs.

Every day you endure stresses and strains which your body absorbs. Your body can only handle so much tension before the tissues begin to tighten and potentially affect the brain and spinal cord. This chronic tension can compromise the function of the central nervous system and the performance of nearly every other system of your body.
CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system – comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. Starting with the weight of about a nickel practitioners evaluate your internal environment to locate and release any restrictions they find. Releasing these restrictions can help to improve the functioning of the central nervous system, naturally eliminate pain and stress, strengthen your resistance to disease and enhance your health and well-being. Upledger Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is effective for a wide range of health problems associated with pain and dysfunction, including:
- Migraine and other Headaches
- Chronic Neck and Back Pain
- Stress and Tension-related Disorders
- TMJ Syndrome
- Fibromyalgia/Chronic Fatigue
- Traumatic Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
- Emotional/Neurovascular Disorders
- Learning Disabilities
- Neurovascular or Immune Disorders
- Many Other Conditions
What To Expect From a Session?
A typical CST session will last about an hour, and takes place in a quiet room, with you remaining fully clothed and relaxed on a comfortable padded table. The therapist listens carefully with her hands to locate areas of tension or restriction, then, using gentle manual techniques will assist the body in releasing those restrictions. Craniosacral therapy may be used alone or combined with other subtle therapies to create powerful effects. The sessions are generally deeply relaxing, creating feelings of warmth or gentle pulsing in the areas the therapist is working on.
Patients see Naturopathic doctors for many reasons. Some patients enjoy the extra time their ND spends with them to obtain a thorough history, listen to their story, provide medical counseling and explain their condition. Other patients feel safe seeing a holistic practitioner who has a medical education behind their recommendations. Whatever the reason, seeing a Naturopathic doctor can greatly improve your health and well-being.
How I can help you?
Problem specific visits/ wellness checks–to obtain assessment and treatment of a specific condition (such as food allergies, vitamin deficiencies and any healthcare concern) or to improve quality of health and well-being. Additional imaging and/or lab work and referrals to specialists may be necessary. Treatment may include botanical medicine, nutritional supplements, special dietary recommendations, exercise/ stretches, homeopathics, or any of the other services offered at InnerWorks.
Treatment focused visits– includes bodywork (craniosacral therapy, problem specific soft tissue massage), Naturopathic spinal manipulation and acupuncture for chronic conditions and overall well-being.
Nutritional counseling: provides additional support for patients’ with special diets.
“The squeaky wheel gets the grease” is not always the best approach in medicine as real problems often develop slowly and quietly. Regular visits to a Naturopathic doctor can help ensure that you are preventing disease, listening to the messages your body is giving you and maximizing your health and Well-being. If you are already having symptoms, schedule a visit to obtain assessment and treatment. Additional imaging and/or lab work and referrals to specialists may be necessary. Treatment may include botanical medicine, nutritional supplements, special dietary recommendations, exercise/ stretches, homeopathics, or any of the other services offered at InnerWorks.
Once a treatment program has been established, focused visits include bodywork (craniosacral therapy, soft tissue massage, muscle energy stretching). Naturopathic spinal manipulation and acupuncture for chronic conditions and overall well-being. These treatment alleviate the effects of stress on the body, assist with emotional and psychological well-being and are particularly helpful in cases of trauma, PTSD, motor vehicle accidents, sports injuries and conditions that conventional medicine has not satisfactorily treated.
In the next few months you will see additional Naturopathic services, such as:
Annual medical exams: female/male exams (including pelvic exam, pap smear, breast exam or testicular and prostate exam) lab work (lipids, blood glucose, hemoglobin A1c, chemistry and metabolic panels, CBC with differential and more as needed) and imaging as indicated. See our statement about insurance coverage.
Constitutional hydrotherapy, ultrasound and electric stimulation treatments.
This is a system of functional analysis and treatment of the mind-body. The patient is assessed with a simple biofeedback process. Findings and problems are thought of in five categories: Structural (e.g. muscles, joints), Chemical (e.g. sensitivities, nutrition), Organ Stress, Mental and Emotional Stressors,Electro-Magnetics (e.g. meridian/acupuncture imbalances). Corrections are made using gentle pressure on tissues, reflexes and acupoints; homeopathics, supplements and lifestyle changes are recommended. In addition, Dr. Kraskow uses several electrical devices including Computerized Body Assessment.
Homeopathy is one of the most interesting, effective and misunderstood types of treatment. The generally recognized founder of modern homeopathy is Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician who coined the term "Homeopathy" (From the Greek, "like" + "suffering") in 1796. I will often ask my patients if they have a basic understanding of homeopathy, only to find out that they have misconceptions about what homeopathics are and how they work. Many people think that any natural remedy found in a health food store is a homeopathic which is not true. Hence, this article is here to clarify some basics about homeopathy.
Homeopathics are in a completely different class than pharmaceutical medications, herbs, vitamins or minerals. These other remedies are primarily chemical in their nature. You take them into your body and they react chemically with your body's systems. Homeopathic remedies taken into the body are thought to interact "energetically and/or informationally".
They are actually dilutions of substances (rather than the substances themselves) that are imprinted energetically. So how does this work? It is based on "The Law of Similars" and "serial dilution".
The law of similars is also known as "like cures like". Here's how it works. You start with a substance that if ingested, would create a symptom–lets say a runny nose. A homeopathic manufacturer takes that substance and processes it with a method similar to shaking, called succussion. The mixture is diluted several times (serial dilution) until the final product no longer has even a trace of the original substance. But, it does have the energetic imprint of the original substance, and the body recognizes that imprint. In the case of the runny nose, the body recognizes the energetic imprint of the substance that would create the runny nose. This brings the body's attention to any runny nose issue, and then the body responds, making corrections as needed. I particularly appreciate the fact that the body is encouraged to do the actual correction. The list of uses for homeopathic remedies is endless.
One of the fascinating things about homeopathy is that while the process of creating a homeopathic described above is most typical, homeopathy can also start with substances that taken in their original form are beneficial. An example of this would be Echinacea, an herb used to support immune function. This herb may be used in a herbal form or a homeopathic form. The homeopathic form provides the energetic imprint, stimulating the body's immune system.
One of the most important uses of homeopathy is to assist with mental and emotional stressors. These remedies help change a person's perspective (e.g. reducing anger, fear, trauma etc.).
Because they are non-chemical, they are significantly safer than any other kind of remedy – Safe, Effective, Natural, Non-Addictive.
The choice of which homeopathic to be used can be complicated. It is often based on the many aspects of the symptomatic picture. As a Kinesiologist, I scan neurological reflexes to assist in the choice. In addition, I use a computer to assess and generate homeopathic remedies.
