BiographyDr. Laura Stuve is a PhD molecular biologist, an Advanced Certified BodyTalk Practitioner, PaRama BodyTalk Practitioner and Advanced Certified BodyTalk Instructor. She spent 25 years doing research in human molecular genetics in both academia and the biotechnology industry, before transitioning into BodyTalk. She received her PhD in Biochemistry from the University of California, San Francisco and went on to do a post-doctoral fellowship at Stanford, working on the Human Genome Project. She has directed numerous research projects focused on investigation of the genetic basis of human disease.
Laura's lifelong interest in alternative healing, Chinese medicine, dream interpretation and shamanism led her to discover BodyTalk in 2005. BodyTalk has helped resolve her major chronic health issues and inspired her to study, practice, teach and bring her research experience into the world of this transformative system of mind-body medicine.
Laura's passion is teaching BodyTalk and doing research. She teaches BodyTalk Fundamentals, Fundamentals Integration focusing on the physiology of the stress response, Module 6: Macrocosmic Bodymind, and BodyTalk Access. Additionally, Laura has a mentoring program for training BodyTalk practitioners, that provides a structured instructor-facilitated environment for quickly coming up to speed in the fundamentals of BodyTalk.
Working with Dr. Janet Galipo, Adv Senior BodyTalk Instructor, over the past 3 years, Laura has directed a pilot clinical research study for BodyTalk. The study has just been completed with very compelling results demonstrating the effectiveness of BodyTalk in treatment of chronic pain conditions. Janet and Laura are now completing the publication from the first study and seeking funding for two follow-ups research studies that expand these initial exciting findings.
Laura's BodyTalk practice incorporates techniques from all of the Advanced Modules, Mindscape and the most advanced BodyTalk work from PaRama 2, that calls upon her unique background in genetics and epigenetics. She sees clients with a wide range of concerns at Quantum BodyTalk in Saratoga and is available for long distance sessions. She loves to work with both adults and children. Her BodyTalk sessions frequently call upon her detailed molecular background in combination with the multidisciplinary and intuitive approach of PaRama BodyTalk.

Laura Stuve is an outstanding teacher and mentor. She is clear, organized and supportive. I took Fundamentals, Fundamentals Integration and Mentoring from her and it made my passing the CBT exam both possible and easy. She's the best.
Laura's calm, thorough and organized manner of presentating Fundamentals 1 & 2 materials makes the otherwise overwhelming amount of information seem so easy to absorb. She incorporates a very good balance of theory and practice with just enough structure so you leave the seminar feeling confident about starting to practice on your own. Her Fundamentals Integrations class was superb with emphasis on Quantum physics and hands on integration of the theory.
Laura's mentoring sessions created a supportive space in which to question, observe, and practice that was intrumental in fastracking my preparation for certification and more importantly, my development as a BodyTalk practitioner.
Fundamentals with Laura is dynamic, engaging and interactive. Because of her thorough knowledge and preparation, she teaches with clarity. This makes the material and techniques easier to understand. Her class covers the entire book that helps me to integrate what she taught with what I study in the book. Not only does Laura have a contagious passion for BodyTalk, she also has a gift for teaching and encouraging her students.
Laura's training was inspiring and timely. After my first series of classes, I felt as if I had come full circle with Traditional Chinese Medicine. Body Talk enhances the practice of TCM by tapping into another branch of diagnoses and healing.
