About Kym


Kym graduated from Boston's Emerson College in 1995 with a BFA in Writing, Literature, and Publishing, from the Muscular Therapy Institute in Cambridge MA in 1998, and received a Permaculture Design Certificate from Colby Sawyer College in New London NH in 2012. Her advanced certifications are in Prenatal/Postpartum Massage (Body Therapy Associates/Carole Osborne-Sheets, 2000), and the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy (The Arvigo Institute, Dr. Rosita Arvigo, 2000). She has been studying herbalism since 1993, and learning with Dr. Rosita Arvigo since 1994. A lifelong learner, Kym has attended many hours of advanced training in myofascial release therapy, sports massage, deep tissue therapy, trigger point therapy, and advanced anatomy and physiology. She has studied extensively with traditional midwives in the Unites States, Belize, and Mexico, and has attended hundreds of births providing prenatal, labor, and postpartum support. She is also passionate about end of life transition, including death doula work, end of life planning, home funerals, and green burial.

Bodywork Style

Kym's bodywork technique is a blend of deep tissue sculpting and firm, gentle massage that reaches the heart of the muscles. Her practical experience working with a wide variety of clients including athletes, physical laborers, musicians, people who spend long days seated at a computer, pregnant women and new mothers (as a doula, massage therapist, and midwife's apprentice), combined with a unique empathic and intuitive sense make for a thorough and therapeutic treatment that leaves one feeling balanced, relaxed, and invigorated. She is also skilled at working with injuries, long-term pain, inflexibility, chronic tension, and improved recovery from intense weight training and physical challenge. Kym views and practices massage as a healing art, a practical skill, and an authentic form of communication which accesses and incorporates all aspects of a person simultaneously. She brings confidence, groundedness, full presence, and a sense of fun to her work.
