Hello! I’m Kelli
Licensed Massage Therapist
I have always been fascinated by the human body and the many miracles it performs every day. While studying Kinesiology at the University of Virginia, I worked in the Sports Medicine Department where I gained invaluable experience when it comes to aiding those with musculoskeletal injuries. After graduating with the Highest Honors, I jumped straight into the field working as a Rehab Specialist, side by side with Chiropractors and Physical Therapists. I then further pursued my passion by attending the Northern Virginia School of Therapeutic Massage.
After graduating from massage school, I immediately took on private clients in the Washington D.C. area. I then relocated my business to Philadelphia, PA for 3 years; however, I am now back in the Virginia area! I have since taken many continuing education courses in Precision Neuromuscular Therapy, Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Therapy, and Pre-Natal Therapy.
For me, the single most important aspect of a massage is you! Every client is different and every client has their own needs and goals. I always make a point to understand what you want out of your session so that I can precisely tailor the massage. Every stroke is given with intention because I never want a single moment to go to waste.
Because of my background in athletics and sports medicine, I am not your traditional massage therapist. In addition to the classic Swedish style strokes, I often utilize techniques such as Precision Neuromuscular Therapy, Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial release, ART, PNF stretching, and more. This combination allows clients to truly relax, but also reap the benefits of a deeper and more fine-tuned massage. My evidence-based approach combined with my focus on individual needs results in a truly relaxing and impactful massage.
With that said, I am always learning new ways to help my clients live a pain and stress free life. The health and wellness world is ever changing and in order to provide my clients with the best, I stay up to date on the latest research in regards to body pain and stress. Evidence-based massage is extremely important to me and I make a habit to only use the best techniques for my clients. After all, the single most important aspect of a massage is the client.
