Anita Kim

Hello!

I am a marine biologist, who has gained an interest in helping people as well as crustaceans. A few years ago, I discovered and fell in love with yoga. I decided to enter a 200-hour yoga teacher training, more to learn about myself, but it turns out, I love teaching as well. As a yoga teacher, I got a small glimpse of how a supportive touch can be healing for others. I've always have had an interest in massage therapy, so I decided to attend SpaTech in Ipsw...

I liked being asked if the pressure was right, and what areas needed work. I like the atmosphere and the relaxing feel of the whole thing. The giant knot in my back is gone!

I had a series of massages from Anita and it really helped my lower back pain. She was great and followed up to see how I was progressing.

What an exceptional massage! Talented and creative, Anita focuses her healing energy on specific problem areas and works magic. Perhaps it's all that yoga strength and patience that she integrates into her work that adds the extra impact? It's like she's persuading your muscles to let go of an entrenched belief by listening and communicating with hands and technique. I'm so grateful to know there's such an effective resource right here in our community. Thank you!

Great session! Anita evaluated and targeted problem areas and structured the session around that.

I really enjoyed my first massage with Anita. She was able to focus on some of my sore spots and help me de-stress. Definitely planning to book with her again!

This was the first massage I've received and it was nothing short of life changing...seriously. Anita was very professional and took time to research my issues prior to my appointment. High recommendation.

I have never felt more comfortable on a massage table than I have with Anita. She meets you where you're at and goes from there. Nothing about Anita is austere or stiff; rather, she is warm, unguarded, and genuine. I appreciated her gentle communication throughout the massage, encouraging me to speak up if I wanted a pressure change or more attention to certain spots. I left my massage feeling relaxed and nurtured, both my Anita's massage and her manner. I'm looking forward to another massage with Anita soon and would encourage others to do the same.

I'm very picky about my massage therapists, so I feel so so lucky to have found Anita just a few weeks after moving to Somerville! My first two massages have been so wonderful. I hold a lot of stress in my forehead behind my eyes, my shoulders, and in my stomach. She's skilled at mixing intense pressure with softer energetic work that both works out my troublesome knots and tight spots, and leaves me feeling so happy and relaxed. It's clear she knows her stuff and also has great intuition about healing. Can't wait for my next session!

Anita is a good listener and took time to talk through what brought me in before, during and after the massage. She is very attentive and skilled at relieving tension and pain. Additionally I appreciated her recommendations of a set of stretches that I can do at home to continue to relieve my tension.

Anita does a great job listening and responding to what is needed for me that day. I highly recommend her for both a relaxation massage or a therapeutic massage depending on your needs. She does both very well!

Her style resonates well with me, deep tissue accentuated pressure points, lingering in places that yearn for the extra attention
