Perhaps one of the best massages I've gotten in Nashville! Kelly was knowlegable, and great with deep-tissue work and working on fixing my poor posture. I look forward to going back to see her again! My only regret is that I just wish I didn't have to book my appointments a month in advance.

Kelly is an experienced massage therapist. I have been to many and this was truly a therapeutic massage.I have many structural issues and she was able to address almost all of them even though we had only an hour. Very quiet and respectful and she asked if the pressure was right for me, it was, Deep enough to work sore muscles but not too deep to hurt me later. She helped relieve lower back pain and neck soreness as well as other areas. She gave me a full hour of massage and was very prompt to greet me when I arrived. Thank you Kelly for a great experience.

While Kelly is a fine masseuse, I couldn't get past the smell of her cigarette breath through my whole massage. She must have smoked one right before I got there because it was STRONG. The room had a bit of a cigarette odor to it as well. I HATE the smell of cigarettes and certainly didn't find it relaxing to smell them through my whole massage.

I went in with a number of problem areas, which had been noted on my client intake form. Kelly had obviously reviewed the form prior to my session and discussed with me what she would focus on to help me most with those issues. I have struggled with my back for several years and with her knowledge and expertise, I haven't felt better in years. During the massage, I would ask about what she was doing. She would explain the muscles and where they connected and after the session she showed me several stretches to help relieve the pain that I have been in. I had NO pain later that day and was amazed at her skill. I will continue to schedule sessions with her.

Kelly was extremely warm and professional. She listened intently as I explained the issues I was hoping to deal with during the Reiki session. She then explained very thoroughly how the hour long session would go. I felt amazing after the session was over! I will definitely return for another visit!

Kelly is the consummate professional. She is the first therapist to relieve the lower burn I've had in my back for a number of years now. I can now sit comfortably for extended periods of time without lower back support. Her new office is beautiful and the atmosphere very relaxed. I always look forward to the bodywork, the ambience and Kelly's wonderful people skills!

Sometimes, you ask a LMT to focus on a certain trouble area, and they might focus a few more minutes of attention on the spot, but not as much as you wanted. Not here! Kelly focused all her attention on the area, and approached it from all sides and angles - as opposed to the traditional, straight-on method used by so many others. She clearly has an expert understanding of how the body works, and even showed me stretches to work on at home to help me improve. I am typically motivated by inexpensive deals and bargins on massages, but Kelly has just become the exception to my rule. Perhaps now, I won't need so many inexpensive and ineffective ones since hers will actually make a difference in my upper back!

I have NEVER done a return Groupon as that was my first experience with Kelly . I have gone to her as much as I possibly can since then . She has gifted healing hands . No one in the world ( and I've had massages all over including Asian countries ) was born to be doing healing massage more than her. Don't even hesitate to make her your regular therapist . I'm on the healing road and I'd love to see you join me :)

Kelly takes the time to really listen to your needs and then appropriately addresses them. I like her because she really gets in there and wants to find a solution to whatever problem you're dealing with. Kelly's also a genuinely caring person with whom I immediately felt comfortable. I don't plan to ever visit anywhere else for massage therapy.
