Never underestimate the power of human touch - a fortune cookie

My intention during our time together is to facilitate a space for healing to happen. The role I play is of the helper, aiding the body in healing itself. My approach is a slow, relaxing, effective manipulation of the soft tissue and fascial bindings. I work with what your body is telling me, allowing release to occur naturally. It often takes time to build up tension or dysfunction in the muscular system. It also takes time to release it. Together, we will work through a plan that works for ...

More about me:

My fascination with all things human really became apparent to me when I found Anthropology, the study of humankind, as an undergraduate student at VCU. I have always been passionate about humans, community, and personal wellness. I began my journey with massage therapy while living in China as a US Peace Corps Volunteer. It was there that I became a frequent receiver of massage, and started tuning into my body as a holistic system--the physical, emotional, and spiritual bodies being interdependent. 

I graduated from the Northern Virginia School of Therapeutic Massage in 2016 and began working full-time as a massage therapist in January of 2017. I am so happy to be able to say “I love my job.” It is so rewarding to be in a profession that serves others. I enjoy guiding others to listen to their bodies and discover the many ways our bodies communicate with us.  I am certified in Prenatal Therapeutic Massage, Medical Massage, and a Reiki Master.

Kayla was great. Asked me a few questions about what I was looking for and then. Took that input and delivered a great relaxing massage.

Consistently the best massage therapist in Richmond.

Kayla could feel where tension had built up in my body and helped release pressure in places I didn't realize where connected to my tension. She asked for feedback and adjusted the massage as needed. Since my injury, a lot of my muscles have been disconnected and I felt like my massage helped ease a lot of tension around those muscles.
