About Kim

All throughout my life I have noticed that people who take their health and wellness into their own hands have the best results. Many people don’t find the healing they seek in traditional medicine.

So I got outsourced and decided it was time for a new direction.  After much contemplation and dread at the thought of going back to work in a corporate office, serendipity lead me to think about massage as a career direction. I decided to follow my gut. I graduated from the Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy in 2007 and became nationally certified through the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork. I liked the idea of helping people feel better. I had been a long-time fan of Reiki and massage and loved how re-energized and balanced it made me feel. I had no idea how rewarding this choice would turn out to be. I found that throughout people’s journey to find healing, they felt judged, and made to feel that their symptoms were all in their head. After years of going from doctor to doctor, being given prescription after prescription and still not obtaining health, many people turned to non-conventional treatment as a last resort and found themselves wishing they hadn’t waited so long. They find that while traditional medicine is great for some situations, it has yet to truly find a way to treat the whole person. With integrative medicine, people can still see their traditional doctors, but get the nonjudgemental, compassionate support to help them feel more whole and continue their path to wellness.

So serendipity turned into a life-changing experience. I love what I do and seek modalities to treat people wherever they are on their journey to wellness. Massage therapy is great for some people. Reflexology speaks to others and still others are drawn to Reiki. Sometimes, depending on what is going on with a person, we combine modalities. Sometimes a client with fibromyalgia can’t stand the thought of a massage when they are in a flare, but reflexology or reiki gives them relief from their symptoms. It’s about honoring where you are at the time and doing what is right for you. 

So now I balance my time between 2 careers, very grateful for where my path has lead me!
