About Kelly Mollnow Wilson
I have been a professional educator since 1996 and my experience includes high school/elementary instrumental music education, coaching basketball, volleyball and soccer for various age groups, collegiate teaching at Oberlin Conservatory, private flute instruction, and ongoing Body Mapping instruction for musicians of all ages and disciplines who want to learn to move better.
Over years of teaching extremely motivated musicians, I found that I could see muscular imbalances that were preventing my students from fully incorporating what they know about how their bodies should move into the movements they were actually able to reliably produce.
In 2013, I experienced a potentially career-ending injury due to a fall and had reconstructive surgery on my left hand. My own knowledge of how my body was supposed to work that I gained through my experience with Body Mapping helped extensively with my recovery and I became fascinated with learning about muscle function. Maybe this was the solution that I was looking for, the missing piece that would allow me to help those students who had more “muscular stuff” going on.
I learned about biomechanics and corrective exercise through Katy Bowman’s program and completed the training in Restorative Exercise (now called Nutritious Movement™) in 2015. Adding daily movement explorations and corrective exercise to my teaching helped, but there was still a disconnect for some of my students.
While continuing to search for solution, I ended up finding the answer in an unexpected fashion. Having been diagnosed with a herniated lumbar disc in 2015, I was on a mission to find a non-surgical solution and was willing to try anything. I had heard of Neurokinetic Therapy and decided to give it a try. This was the answer to my own pain issue and over months of therapy, I came to realize that this was the tool I was missing.
I went back to school to become a Licensed Massage Therapist, which would then allow me to practice Neurokinetic Therapy. Now, I can offer a both movement education and hands-on therapeutic approach when necessary to help people perform with precision.
