Kim O'Neill, LMT is our Licensed and Certified Massage Therapist!
Kim came to Massage Therapy at a time of change in her life. With a continuing interest in body work and various modalities that use touch as the basis toward healing. This came to her full force when spending time with her mother as she transitioned out of her life. Kim refers to her immediate drive to be come a licensed massage therapist as her mother's final gift to her. Seeing the comfort and relaxation her mother received was confirmation that this was the path to take.
Kim earned her Massage Therapist license and certification in 2007, and has spent each day forward in additional education not only of herself but for the public and especially her clients in finding the path to increased well being. Of course there is always more to the story.
Currently Kim volunteers a lot of her time to events performing either Chair or Sport massage. The events include benefits toward Cancer Survivorship and Research, professional tri-athletes, and 'Kids in Crisis.' It is very important to her that time and effort is put forth for the benefit of all, not just a select few.
