Why Clients come to see Dr. Kern:

Clients seek Dr. Kern's bodywork for its unique blend of science-based knowledge, intuition, compassion, and humor. Clients do not receive a typical relaxation massage; instead, they receive the work that releases the myofascia and Trigger Points causing the discomfort and pain.   Maya Abdomial Massage brings to her bodywork a tool that addresses digestive, reproductive, and spiritual challenges. Additionally, Dr. Kern's knowledge of musculoskeletal postural distortions and corrective techniques, help her clients find the ease and comfort in their bodies that makes them feel whole again.
