Book with Kelly
Kelly Marshall has worked in varying capacities as a massage therapist; clinically alongside chiropractors and physical therapists as well as in various spa environments. They are also a certified yoga therapist (C-IAYT), therefore, they utilize a diverse array of techniques and tailors each session to the individual’s needs and wants. Additionally, each session incorporates emphasis on tapping into the nervous system of each client via verbal breathing and embodiment cues (as in Yoga). They facilitate a safe space for clients to reconnect with their bodies and drop into a deeper state of rest in order to heal. What they offer is unique and unlike most other massage experiences.
