Kyndra Blacks, LMT
Hello Eugene, I have been a licensed massage therapist for a little over 5 years. I provide a combination of therapeutic and deep tissue massage which allows me to work the problem area while still allowing for relaxation. Massage therapy has always been a part of my life even when I was too young to know it was a profession. At the age of 7 and up I would give my aunts and uncle’s foot rubs to help them sleep, I would also gift massages instead of buying presents. Everyone is always happy after a massage and to be able to facilitate that is the biggest reward in the world.
Kim is a Corrective Exercise Specialist and Kinesiologist who works with the rehabilitation of prior injuries using exercise to correct movement patterns and alleviate chronic pain.
She is an expert in human movement assessment. who can accurately analyze a client’s movement patterns, identify overactive and underactive muscle groups and compensations.
Corrective Exercise is a terrific compliment, if not a necessity, to anyone that also is under the treatment plan of chiropractic care, massage, acupuncture, or suffering from an injury or accident.
The goal of Corrective Exercise is to improve movement, identify motion habits, and fix total body coordination.
When not in the office, she prefers to spend time outdoors with her family and pets.
