Kim is a CT Licensed Massage Therapist, Reiki Master, E-RYT 500 and Level 1 Qigong Instructor
Kim received her massage therapy certification in 2008, after leaving the banking and finance world and has never looked back. She studied at Florida Health Academy in Naples, FL and has continually studied and added to her massage modality knowledge and practice ever since. Building on this knowledge she complete 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training in 2012 and 300 Hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training in 2015 with Green Monkey Yoga (formerly Bala Vinyasa Yoga) in Naples, FL. She is trained and attuned as a Reiki Master in the Traditional Reiki Method of Natural Healing and offers Reiki training, education and certification to those who want to learn the healing art.
As a massage therapist, Kim's greatest joy is to help clients move into ease and wellness in their body through the various massage modalities that she has studied. When the physical body is restored to health, so is the mind; they are connected. Kim approaches each client differently, tailoring the massage to meet the client’s needs in the moment. As Kim has grown in her work, she has added education and practice in more subtle forms of bodywork and healing. She has completed training in Levels 1&2 of CranioSacral Therapy and recently received certification as a Level 1 Qigong Instructor with Supreme Science Qigong Center. Both are powerful healing techniques that allow the body to heal itself.
Kim teaches a variety of yoga classes from Restorative to Heated Power Vinyasa in the Hartford, CT area. Locations include YogaPerk in Manchester, The Mandell JCC in West Hartford, Yoga for Recovery at CHR and weekly classes for the South Windsor Public Schools. Her work as a yoga teacher gives her insight on stretches and strengthening exercises to help maintain the effectiveness of the client’s wellness session.
In her spare time, Kim enjoys gardening, travelling and spending time with family and friends – especially her 4 grandchildren!
Kim looks forward to being in partnership with you to help you build a positive, strong relationship with your health and wellness!
