Master Orthopedic Massage Therapist
Kym has been practicing massage therapy for 18 years. She graduated from the Northwest School of Massage in Seattle, Washington in 1996 and immediately went into medical massage therapy, treating auto accident injuries and working with physicians treating soft tissue dysfunctions. She extensively utilizes different assessment techniques to determine what is causing the dysfunctions in each client so as to prepare the most effective treatment program. In addition, she has developed a unique technique called SEAR (Sustained Engagement Activating Release) that breaks the soft tissue holding patterns that develop from years of imbalance and cumulative minor injuries. She works to “reprogram” the muscles and connective tissue from the positions and habits that keep them out of balance and makes them prone to injury. She uses a combination of long, slow trigger point pressure, myofascial release, and range of motion techniques to retrain the body. This approach has both immediate and long term, long lasting effects. While her style is definitely therapeutic more people fall asleep during these sessions than during a Swedish massage.
Kym only takes Orthopedic patients at this time.
