Kellie Atkinson has been practicing therapeutic massage/manual therapy for over 8 years.  She is a graduate of Health Options Institute, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. There she learned to delicately integrate modern Western medicine with traditional Eastern philosophies leading to a greater state of well-being.  


Kellie's interest in massage therapy piqued after suffering for years from a back injury in her teens related to sports.  Following a course of chiropractic care, her doctor recommended massage therapy as well.  Within several sessions, her back pain had finally been alleviated.  Soon after, she made the career transition from Geriatric Social Worker to Massage Therapist.

Kellie strongly believes in the body's innate ability to heal itself.  She perceives her role as a facilitator that helps the Mind, Body, and Spirit to reconnect, which can eliminate any "dis-ease" and  restore optimal health.  She recognizes that often the cells within soft tissue, such as muscle, maintain the memory and emotion of trauma, often for much longer periods than our minds. She finds working with the tissue in a non-intrusive, "sinking" and "unwinding" motion provides greater healing benefits with much less pain than zealous muscle stripping.
