Hello! I am Kerry Shannon, LMT. Best known for my restorative rehab, sports and medical massage therapies.
With a large client base of local golfers and sports figures, I've been told that the muscular release avid golfers experience after a therapy session with me frees up their swing, I often hear "I had the best game after my last massage." I take great pride in those wonderful, affirming compliments.
What gives me greater satisfaction is knowing how much relief I am able to give my vast array of medical clients. I specialize in rehab therapies, often releasing clients from decades-old pain they thought could never subside, resigned to living with it. I take untraditional approaches to address your immediate pain while also addressing the areas effected by how our bodies are designed to compensate and balance things out. Often times, the source of your immediate pain is not what anchors, or binds it. My vast experience and ability to “hear your body talk” enables me to meet these challenges, often times completely getting rid of the pain, always reducing it.
I have numerous clients with cancer, fibromyalgia, Parkinson's, chronic fatigue, Multiple Sclerosis, leukemia, heart disease, lung disease, diabetes, stroke, phantom limb pains, plantar fasciitis, knee, hip & joint replacement, rotator cuff issues, and the list goes on and on. Nothing gives me more pleasure that lessening their discomfort while providing a greater range of motion and increasing the quality of their lives.Helping them attain their goals.
I am intuitive on the body, meaning it is easy for me to "listen to your body speak," thus guiding me to the appropriate technique to get the most out of your massage time. I am extremely skilled at rehab, restorative, medical, sports and traditional deep tissue massage, as well as numerous other modalities. I tend to favor medical, sports and deep tissue techniques as I have found that these provide the longest lasting effects, greatest range of motion, and best pain relief. Although, it is not uncommon for me to incorporate many other modalities based on what your body tells me it needs. While I can absolutely deliver a relaxing spa massage, I prefer to "get work done" and focus on your specific problem areas, the anchors associated with such, and restoring balance to your body. During our consultation, we'll establish what your main goals are and I will support those with the proper bodywork.
It is not uncommon for me to give "homework" to my clients. It is my privilege to empower you in your own healing. Homework usually integrates your reality, your busy lifestyle with simple, easy to do habits that compliment my therapies as well as your hectic life. Educating you on how to lessen, or prevent, the same bothersome problem areas is a main goal when I feel the client is receptive. I am all about alleviating stress and pain, and increasing your range of motion.
Largely a physician referral business, most clients are word of mouth. I try to accommodate everyone. Given my high demand due to the nature of my medical expertise, availability and mobility, I give preferential scheduling to clients with standing appointments and referrals, and then "walk ins." I appreciate your patience while booking an appointment. Thank you.
