About

Kitty Holzmer

As a little girl I had the dream of someday being someone who helped people.   After marrying young and spending several years performing clerical duties in an office I could not see how to  come close to that childhood dream.  As life unfolded in my mid- twenties, I was introduced to the profession of occupational therapy and practiced that profession for over 10 years.  After working with people with severe disabilities I became interested in wellness and holistic practices.  Eventually this evolved into studying massage and bodywork, myofascial release as well as numerous other bodywork modalities, and various forms of energy healing.  As my profession and experiences evolved,  I worked in the healing arts as a registered occupational therapist, massage therapist and bodyworker, healer, mentor, teacher, and workshop and retreat facilitator since 1981 to the present.   My clients also  benefit from sound healing and guided meditation and imagery.

This brief story and journey has led me to a place where I can provide a nurturing and unique environment for my clients where healing and change can occur, weaving together body, mind and spirit.  Supporting this work is a strong clinical background that I built as an occupational therapist working with complex conditions.

In addition to providing therapy and healing sessions I teach manual therapies to professional therapists with a body-mind-spirit approach. I have been able to combine my academic background and years of clinical experience as an occupational therapist with my experience, love and exploration of the healing arts to bring a personal, caring and knowledgeable approach to helping people who are physically and /or emotionally injured, hurting and depleted.

My long and challenging road to wholeness throughout my life has experientially led me to the opportunity to present workshops and retreats to women (primarily but not exclusively),  to claim their power, creativity, strength and loveliness through expressive arts, spiritual practices and communal support. This kind of work brought me into a fullness that I cherish and I love sharing it with others.

I am a New Jersey licensed Massage Therapist as well as a state licensed Occupational Therapist and a Healing Touch Certified Practitioner.  I am a member of the American Massage Therapy Association, The Healing Touch Professional Association and I am certified by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy and the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork as well as being an NCTMB continuing education provider through Wellness Workers Holistic Health, LLC.

My private practice of Creative Wellness is in Cape May Court House, NJ.  I am the happy and grateful wife of my dear husband David, and servant of our most excellent cat Ginger.

  • Accolades

    "With my intimate knowledge of healing modalities and my experience with healers of varied disciplines, I know that Kitty’s intuition, intelligence, compassion, skill and creativity provide a depth of skill that provides deep relief and profound healing."
    - Chris Curley, Licensed Accupunturist

    “'A Journey.' This best describes my sessions with Kitty. Unlike the majority of massage therapists who 'paint by numbers,' Kitty’s work is a fusion of healing techniques. Kitty has shown me how connected the whole body is. As a physician who has had regular traditional massage work, I finally stepped out of this paradigm to better understand my pain and limitations. Kitty works to identify the source(s) of the problem, and then develops a plan to bring the body back into harmony."
    - John S Hong, MD, MS


    "As a breast cancer survivor I experienced post operative physical pain and restriction . After my first session with Kitty, I knew that I was in the right place. Not only did my body feel better, but so did my spirit. I enjoyed movement without pain, a new sense of hope and a belief that my health could be restored."

    - Cheryl Riillo, M.S.,Shiatsu Therapist
    Evolutionary Reiki Master/Teacher
