About Us

Therapeutic care is provided by Kevin Pennell (North Carolina License #15765).  Kevin offers various modalities customized to meet the needs of each on an individualized basis.  Each person is an individual, so their massage should reflect the same care.  Trained in TuiNa (A Chinese form of Medical Massage), European Neuromuscular, Trigger Point Therapy, Acupressure, Active & Passive Release techniques, Myofacial Release, Cupping, Moxibustion, Guasha, and Energy Work, Kevin utilizes the modality that works best for the individual at that time.  He combines these techniques with Therapeutic Qigong and Tai Chi, so the client may continue their own care at home.  The ultimate goal is to return to or maintain balance for the individual.

Periodic Workshops are also offered.

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Went for the massage to work the knots out. Helped a lot. Will schedule another appointment

    I was very pleased with Kevin’s skill level and professionalism ! I really enjoyed my massage, great job Kevin ...

  • Kevin was knowledgeable and skillful. I felt comfortable and loved the heated massage table. Great experience and will be going back to see him.

    Kevin has strong hands. I’ve slept very well since the massage.

  • I left looser, less sore and educated. I look forward to continuing this new relationship. Thank you Kevin

    Kevin took a lot of care in addressing my challenges. I'm feeling a lot better after just 2 sessions. I'll definitely be seeing him again!

  • Kevin is very professional and wants to go for the culprit on why,you experience your pain. I'm glad to have met him and will continue to use him.

    Great appointment and I learned a lot. My knee problem is definitely changed and I look forward to further improvement. I think that one helpful thing would be to have a specific description of how to find Kevin's entrance into the building, and information about parking options included as a bit of boiler plate text in the appointment confirmation email. That would be especially helpful for recent relocators to the area. (such as me!) But now that I've been there - that's less of a thing! Thanks Kevin!

  • Kevin offered intense, focused body work. He was responsive and present during the entire session. His space is comfortable, soft and quiet.

    Kevin is quite skilled and knowledgable. I have been getting various massages for 20 years from deep tissue, Thai, Swedish, Rolfing, etc. Kevin was quite skilled and his understanding of anatomy helped me greatly with a muscular issue including some exercises to help on my own. I will continue to see him for a long time due to his skills.

I appreciated Kevin explaining what he was doing at all times. He asked me a lot of questions that I think helped him understand what was going on with my body and what I needed to have done. The room that was used was great, it was comfortable and the music that was used was relaxing. I will definitely schedule another appointment with him in the future.

Original contact and arrival procedure a bit scattered, however, on the table Kevin knew his stuff. He has obviously studied and practiced different techniques and modalities. He was able to use good pressure and carry it through the full hour. I appreciate his work ethics as he not only is very competent but also engaging and helpful with stretching to do at home in between appointments. I will return as I definitely got relief from neck & back pain just after one session. Thank you Kevin ! Regina Loveday

Kevin has a thorough knowledge of the body's musculature, allowing for a truly individualized massage. He was able to find all my problem areas easily, then gave me preventive strategies for the future. I appreciated him bringing my husband in to show him how to massage the affected areas, since they are chronic problem areas. I have had over 300 massages and I have never experienced a massage like Kevin provides. Truly top-notch! He is a perpetual student and his love for what he does shows.

If you are looking for a good sports massage, he's very good at breaking up knots. I like the fact he's trained in eastern massage and knows all the meridian points.

It has become apparent to me that Kevin really has a gift. He always knows exactly what needs to be done to resolve an issue. I had been ignoring an occupational injury for a couple of years. One morning a few weeks ago my shoulder said enough and quit on me. He fixed it that day. I have since been having sessions with him weekly and I experience improvement every time. I am so grateful.
