Meet Janell


Janell Kaplan, BSc, LMT // Founder

Janell Kaplan is a Louisville-based therapeutic bodyworker and nutrition consultant. Before opening her functional nutrition and lifestyle practice in Kentucky, she ran a private practice in the Washington, D.C. metro area and in the suburbs of Seattle, Washington. Since 2003, nutrition has been her constant, and she has studied it intensely—at first because her health depended on it and then because her clients’ health depended on it. After graduating from American Military University with a BSc in Health Sciences and Psychology, Janell expanded her therapeutic bodywork practice to include nutrition and lifestyle consulting. She is board certified and Kentucky state-licensed in therapeutic massage and bodywork, specialized in resolving the core causes of people’s most chronic conditions, and on track to graduate with a MSc in Clinical Nutrition from the University of Bridgeport in 2019, which is renowned for its functional medicine approach to nutrition.

Janell has completed continuing education in applied kinesiology, Ayurvedic herbs and nutrition for cancer, craniosacral therapy, myoskeletal therapies, psychology of the body, somatoemotional release, and more. She is also a member of multiple professional organizations including: American College of Lifestyle Medicine (ACLM), American College of Nutrition (ACN), Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM), Kentucky Board of Licensure for Massage Therapy, and National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB).
