This diverse background gives her a unique perspective on the body's needs and pains, making her an empathetic partner in her clients' recovery journeys.

Whether you’re an athlete looking for relief, a new parent adjusting to physical changes, or someone who spends too much time sitting at a desk, Kimmy understands.

I have been a licensed massage therapist since 2009 after graduating from the Northern Virginia Therapeutic Massage School in Falls Church, Virginia. My interest in massage therapy started after attending a free massage class where a guest therapist spoke to students about what massage therapy was and the benefits that came from it. Soon after I enrolled and completed my training.


As an experienced therapist with more nearly 15 years of experience, I strive to serve the best interest of my clients at all times. My goal is to provide the best quality bodywork and service possible through various techniques and modalities to treat clients dealing with chronic pain, fibromyalgia, broken bones, and other health issues.

 

I enjoy working with runners, swimmers, tennis players, and other athletes to help repair and recover from strenuous activities, keeping them in tip top shape. My skills focus on Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release, and Swedish/Relaxation. Delivering compassionate quality care to my clients is my top priority.
