Kevin is able to work on so many areas in a limited amount of time, focusing on areas of immediate discomfort as well areas that require more attention that have improved greatly over our time together. I always feel lighter after my appointment with him.

Kevin is a wonderful practitioner. He knew what my aching muscles needed and delivered with great professionalism. I could feel the tightness melt away, thus reminding me how my body should feel.

Kevin is excellent as a massage therapist. He is able to really understand what your body needs and then apply the right technique - from tui an and Chinese medicine to Swedish total body - to help you be at your best.

I came into my appointment stiff, sore and in pain. I left feeling much better, and with Kevin's advice for a post-massage Epsom salt and lavender soak, I feel 95% better! (95% is much better than I expected to feel, given my soreness and recent injury, so I am VERY happy!)

I am very happy as I have had back and neck pain for over 15 years. I have been to many other people for help and Kevin's approach is different then the others. I have to say that I was a bit skeptical at first, but after my session I can say, I think this is what I needed! I have plans to visit Kevin once a month, in hopes of having some relief from this pain. Thank you, Kevin, for taking the time and effort to helping me! Dolores Tuttle

Kevin's skills and presence give such healing. I have used his treatments for my frozen shoulder, overall conditioning, stress and even grief and loss issues. My favorite treatment is his lymph treatment which I usually do in the spring. What a way to release toxins!

I like that the massage was not just about the experience of getting a massage, but about a progression toward healing. Dr. Pennell took the time to explain why I was feeling certain pains, and gave recommendations for stretches to relieve them. I'm excited for my next visit!
