"I believe there is no athlete too old or too young to benefit from massage therapy. My youngest client is a four year old gymnast and my eldest is a 91 year young tennis player. To my clients, I am known as a sports injury specialist. My goal is to relieve everyday aches and pain, reduce stress to the muscles and joints and allow my clients to continue enjoying his or her work outs and competitions. For professional and elite athletes I am here to help you achieve your peak performance goals.
On a more personal note... I grew up in Southern California near Ojai, and relocated to South Florida in the 1980's where I had been in the yachting industry for almost 20 years. The later of those years I was employed in yacht sales. Then in 2003 I was involved in an auto accident and found myself in months of rehabilitation and therapy. It was then that I discovered the amazing benefits of massage therapy. I know that I am not alone when I say that massage was, in my opinion, the single most valuable element in my recovery. Shortly there after I enrolled in massage school. 700 hours later I was licensed in Florida and received my national certification. Much of the foundation of my early training was in a progressive medical center in Florida, where I worked in a medical rehabilitation environment. I have a sincere love for bringing healing and balance to the body and mind. While in Florida I was fortunate to tour the Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami and I see first hand how massage is assisting patients in healing a large numbers of medical conditions. I urge you to visit that web site and see for your self the amazing work being done at TRI.
As always, here's to you ... in mind, body and spirit!"
Most Sincerely, Kim
