Dr. Laura Stuve
Dr. Laura Stuvé is a Ph.D. molecular biologist and an Advanced Certified Instructor and Practitioner of BodyTalk Mind-Body Medicine. Laura got her PhD at UCSF in biochemistry and then did a postdoctoral fellowship at Stanford working on the Human Genome Project. She was a Senior Director of Research and Development at two California biotech companies working on identifying genes involved in chronic disease. Laura directed the laboratory work to construct the human genetic map, the HapMap, a large-scale National Institute of Health project, among several other public grant projects. Laura spent 26 years in basic research in human molecular genetics in academia and the biotechnology industry, before shifting her focus full-time to mind-body medicine. For the past 12 years, Laura has been in clinical practice, integrating her molecular genetics background with the BodyTalk system’s multidisciplinary, intuitive approach.
Laura's long time interest in the how the mind...our belief systems, psychology, stresses and emotions, impact the health of the body, led her to an interest in alternative medicine and a system which gave profound results for her own health issues, BodyTalk. Laura has trained in many modalities: BodyTalk, MindScape, San Baio Acupressure, SourcePoint Therapy, BioGeometry, dream interpretation, yoga, shamanism and essential oils. But the BodyTalk System's underlying philosophy allows her to leverage all her modalities: the principles of an approach of "structured intuition" that allow one to listen to the priorities of the innate healing intelligence of the body, and creation of individualized treatment plans that access and resolve the history (the story) of the health issue.
Laura's knowledge of the molecular, genetic, and environmental factors that cause disease gives her a unique expertise to integrate mind body medicine and science. She is an inspiring instructor who makes BodyTalk and the scientific basis of mind body medicine accessible to all. She has been teaching BodyTalk and courses of her own design in science-based mind-body medicine for alternative healthcare practitioners for 8 years. Her passion is to bring the latest paradigm-changing scientific discoveries into the hands of healthcare practitioners to make a difference in clinical treatment of chronic disease.
Dr. Stuvé was the Principal Investigator on the first formal clinical research study for BodyTalk, working with Dr. Janet Galipo and Be Healthy, Inc. This study, focused on evaluating the impact of BodyTalk treatments on individuals with chronic pain conditions, demonstrated significant improvements in pain intensity and associated emotional symptoms:
