Meet our therapists
LaVonna Calder, LMT, graduated from Lexington Healing Arts Academy in July 2019. She received additional training in Ashiatsu in May 2022 in Asheville, NC. Ashiatsu/deep tissue is her preferred modality when working with clients. She has an interest in reflexology and any therapies that help with coping with PTSD and addiction. When LaVonna isn’t massaging you will find her reading, watching movies and documentaries, vintage/antique shopping, hiking, swimming, traveling, petting and hugging any animal that will allow her to, spending time in nature doing almost anything, and hanging out with her two daughters. She enjoys DoorDashing and volunteering for concessions at UK and Bengals games.
Kaleigh Hammitt, LMT, graduated from Lexington Healing Arts Academy in November 2022.
Her preferred modality is Deep tissue, and she loves to formulate treatment plans, work clinically on tissue issues and find the root causes of those issues.
Craniosacral therapy is a modality that has changed her life, and she plans to pursue that to incorporate into her client’s treatment plans.
Her passion lies in helping people and serving the needs their body speaks. Her experience with massage has taught her that the therapist who listens to the body and soul, effects change. Her goal is to be that for as many souls as I can.
Besides bodywork, she enjoys health and wellness education, exercise, reading, writing, painting, and cats.
Kyle Naugle, LMT, graduated from Lexington Healing Arts Academy in February 2022. He decided to become a massage therapist because he enjoys helping others, and he has always had a fascination with the human body. Massage therapy was a path that merged those two passions together so he could help others with their physical well being. His favorite modality to offer clients is deep tissue because he enjoys the focus and attention it gives to the deeper layers of tissue. He has received additional training in Sports Massage and Chair Massage, and in the future he hopes to learn Reflexology and Cupping. When he isn’t massaging, Kyle loves spending time with his wife, two twin daughters, their dog and two cats; playing the saxophone; and traveling. You can also find him at EKU where he works as an accounting specialist.
