She earned a B.S. in Kinesiology from Texas A&M University before relocating from Texas to attend Brian Utting School of Massage in Seattle. She has been in private practice for 20 years in the Bellevue and Issaquah area, specializing in injury treatment and deep tissue work. She has used her extensive knowledge of kinesiology to work successfully with chiropractors, physical therapists and orthopedic physicians in support of the client’s health and healing from injury and trauma. She is certified in pregnancy massage and has also worked closely with midwives and doulas. Kim was an instructor at Lake Washington Institute of Technology for 7 years and was a co-designer of the current massage program curriculum. She taught Anatomy & Physiology, Kinesiology, Treatment Massage and Pathology.
Kim has extensive experience working collaboratively with primary care physicians to implement a treatment plan tailored to returning the client to optimal function and health. She uses her training in myofascial release, trigger point release and a variety of deep tissue techniques to individualize treatment to fit the needs of the client. Kim began her study in Energy Medicine in 2012 and completed a 200-hour certification course. She continues her study as an apprentice to Gloria Two-Feathers, the founder of Earth Walk School of Energy Medicine, to deepen not only her skill in doing the work, but also her understanding of the work and the profound impact that it can have to facilitate people’s healing and in their lives. Kim believes deeply in the body’s ability to heal itself. A safe and grounded space allows for the body to heal physically, and as importantly, mentally and spiritually. She believes in the power of connection to bring about healing through a skilled therapeutic approach, excellent palpation skills and extensive knowledge of musculoskeletal anatomy combined with the more subtle energies of touch and presence.
Outside of work, Kim can be found focusing on her family and driving her twins to all of their activities. She also continues to study and teach the classes Art and Craft of Energy Medicine, Gathering Your Medicine and Woman as Healer: The Suppressed History with Gloria Two-Feathers.
