Kimberley Marlow, LMT
Integrative Massage and Myofascial Release, Specialist
Kimberley meets every client in an attentive and caring way. Her approach to massage is holistic and intuitive with intention focused on the concerns of the client. She specializes in Integrative Massage. Through touch and various hands on techniques, communication and trust is established with the body that is instrumental in creating a safe space for the client. That space is then held allowing the clients mind to rest, in the spirit, with a feeling of nurturing connection.
Integrative massage therapy is also useful in the management of pain. Aside from increasing the flow of blood and oxygen to muscles, it also improves joint flexibility. These benefits are credited to an increase in the production and release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkiller. Different hands-on techniques are used in integrative massage to promote physiological changes. This is achieved by primarily focusing on the body’s connective tissue.
Kimberley has a medical back ground in nursing. She emphasizes treatment for your ailment while attending to the entire body. Over the course of several sessions, she will ensure you are feeling better, and work with you to create a plan for the future of your wellness care.
