About Kim Tuber Butters
The Creator and Developer of POT-WHC
Kim Tuber Butters was born in 1955 and raised in New York City. Kim fell in love with dance in 9th grade while taking an introductory Syvilla Fort technique (AFRO-MODERN STYLE) dance class at the Manhattan YMCA. While initially working on her BFA in dance at SUNY Purchase, Kim studied Pilates with the well-known instructor Romana Kryzanowska in NYC in the 1970s, as well as studying many forms of Yoga throughout the decades.
After dancing professionally with two small dance troupes and belonging to the artist-model union as a working artist model, she decided to finish college. Kim had multiple areas of study occurring simultaneously, and there was an emphasis in psychology, sociology, and anthropology in her first bachelor’s degree, as well as the many science courses required as a prerequisite to apply to physical therapy school.

Kim relocated to New Mexico, settled in Rio Rancho, then Albuquerque in 1991. There, she continued to practice physical therapy in several different healthcare institutions such as hospitals, outpatient clinics, rehab centers, traditional homecare, nursing homes, and schools.
She worked as a licensed physical therapist in a prison treating individuals that were incarcerated. Divorced and raising two sons, Kim opened Wholistic Physical Therapy Inc. agency, which has been providing community-based physical therapy services to adults with developmental disabilities since 1999.
Kim has been a practicing licensed physical therapist for 30+ years with a very diverse background of the study- certifications and experience as you will see as you read on. Kim is currently the president of Wholistic Physical Therapy Inc. located in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Kim’s Perspective on POT-WHC:
“When I started noticing symptoms of chronic post-exertional fatigue, joint pain, insomnia, and anxiety, I sought out treatment and advice from both traditional and non-traditional practitioners including doctors, counselors, certified nurse practitioners, osteopaths, chiropractors and doctors of oriental medicine.
I received many treatments and some were more helpful than others. However, the symptoms persisted and became debilitating, making it difficult to be productive throughout the day.
Being an inquisitive person by nature, I sought answers and deepened my understanding of the diseases affecting me. I read Dr. David Perlmutter’s Grain Brain and Dr. Shawn Baker’s The Carnivore Diet and several other books describing our body’s inflammatory responses to many of the foods we commonly eat was a gamechanger for me.”

Through Trial and Error, Kim Perfected Her Points of Transformation Approach
“Having been a vegetarian and a pescatarian for several decades, I questioned if this was the best nutrition available (for me). Hearing for many years about gluten-free diets yet being doubtful regarding the efficacy and science to support these diets, I investigated further.
I wanted to improve my health and remained open to reasonable options. After eliminating all wheat from my diet, I noticed a remarkable decline in the joint pain in both my knees within just seven days! This was the first of many, many, many shifts and changes, i.e. points of transformation, that were made which all resulted in positive outcomes. The results were beyond belief and this triggered a hunger (no pun intended) for more knowledge in nutrition, as well as advanced study in forms of self-healing/ brain-body connection.
Immersing myself to this day with reading books, taking continued education seminars, and listening to podcasts about physiology, nutrition, genetics, neurology, and various types of medical applications, I have added to my body of knowledge. This is incorporated into my current physical therapy practice as well, such as using light therapy in the form of near infrared light for healing and pain reduction.”
Kim Underwent Several Procedures to Develop Her Points of Transformation
Practicing what I preach and leading by example, I started investigating reasonable, relevant, yet out of ordinary medical procedures. I underwent controversial treatments as follows:
- stem-cell injection treatments using my own blood (platelet rich plasma - PRP),
- bone marrow and adipose tissue to treat advanced hip osteo arthritis, and
- surgical jawbone debridement of cavitation with root canal extractions (& stem-cell application) from a biological dentist.
More points of transformation ensued from these procedures. Two standout certifications that are personally valuable for me and make health-coaching a natural point of transformation for me include my Exercise Nutrition Coaching Certification and Blood Flow Restriction Coaching Certification.
The exercise nutrition coaching certification has an emphasis on current coaching techniques. The biofeedback and visualization use a deep state of relaxation to strengthen self-awareness. supporting a more natural state of being and increasing the ability to exist in the present moment leading to stress reduction.
I have developed my own style of visualization which is both 1-way and 2-way visualization. 2-way visualization asks for the listener’s participation so there develops an exchange of thought and energy during the interviewing process.”
