My style of massage is a mixture of medical, therapeutic, and myofascial release. My ideal client is someone who is motivated about achieving their healing goals and willing to put the time in, even when at home. Oftentimes people will get massages believing it will solely fix the issue. That is not the case. Your life outside the treatment room aids in reaching your healing goals considerably.
Are you stretching?
Do you eat foods that cause inflammation?
How active are you?
Once I have worked with a client and have become familiar with their conditions, I incorporate different stretches and techniques to see what their body does and doesn't respond to, which also helps the client begin to understand their body better.
I want the client to feel involved in their treatment and create a customized experience for you.
The techniques I know have amazing results! Swedish is designed to relax the entire body by running the muscles in long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. Medical treatments target a specific problem the patient presents with a diagnosis. Myofascial cupping encourages healing by creating a negative pressure/suction on the skin using silicone cups that pull underlying tissues, blood, and other fluids close to the surface of the skin. Hot stones help relieve muscle pain and tension or to those who simply want to relax. Chair Massage, for people who may have trouble lying on the massage table. Also great for busy people on the go and want to mainly focus on the neck, shoulders, and back.
I love using cupping therapy because it helps to lift and separate the fascia, reducing adhesions and helping to boost hydration. This leads to benefits such as assisting the body in maintaining range of motion in joints, eliminating myofascial trigger points, reducing pain linked to fascial adhesions, and reduce inflammation; just to mention a few. I also like to include stretches during the cupping treatment in order to effectively loosen any adhesions and get all areas of the targeted area.
I started massage school because I was tired of seeing people I cared about being offered band-aid solutions from their health care providers. Whether injections, pills, or surgeries. Although I believe these are sometimes necessary eventually, I strongly believe giving the body a chance to heal naturally has a big impact on recovery.
I have been a massage therapist for 3 years.
During this time, I have been working in different settings practicing massage: chiropractic office for medical massage, spa for a variety of treatments, and chair massage traveling with the World Series of Poker. I have enjoyed and learned so much from each of these jobs, but my all-time favorite has been traveling with the World Series of Poker. It has provided the perfect balance to my career. I am able to have one on one interactions with clients working towards their wellness goals at the office and spa, but then travel and be immersed in a fun high-energy job provided by the World Series of Poker. This is also a reflection of how I am in the treatment room - adapting to the comfortability and needs of the client. If a client prefers a quiet massage or more of a conversation, that is what they get.
I want to help you feel better! If you have specific ailments needing to be addressed, or just want to relax, I'd love to invite you to book with me!

Kim was so much fun! Never did I think that getting a massage would be a blast. I felt like I was getting therapy plus a massage. It was fantastic.
Great experience. Kimberly was a tiny little powerhouse. I haven’t felt this good in a year. Room was very small but it served the purpose. Will certainly be back.
Absolutely 100% excellent experience! Kimberly was awesome, she really knows what she's doing. The best & deepest massage I have ever recieved. I will be making this a regular part of my self care routine. So happy and relaxed.
Fantastic experience! My husband and I did The Elevation Spa Package on our vacation and it was wonderful. Kimberly and Elicia were amazing! If we lived here, we would book monthly massages with these ladies.
