My name is Mary Kinlen and I am dedicated to promoting better health and wellbeing through aromatic massage therapy.
My journey into becoming a holistic practitioner began in 1969, when I gave massages to friends and saw how it affected their spirit, emotions, thinking and physical bodies. Professionally trained at the Indiana Therapeutic Massage School in 2007; then licensed in Indiana, later receiving certification from the California Massage Therapy Council (CMTC #33038) in 2012, following 400+ sessions of Healing Touch Biofield Therapy from 1993-present in addition to two college-univerisity degrees ('88 and '06), I can help relieve your pain with Medical Massage or relieve stress facilitating deep relaxation with a GREAT Swedish Massage.
Swedish Massage not only FEELS good but it actually benefits all 11 systems of your body (see Benefits of Massage). I've helped people with complications arising from medical conditions including but not limited to lupus, fibromyalgia, heart disease, cancer, diabetes, injuries, liposuction, respiratory, anxiety, depression, trauma, P.L.S., M.S., skin and eating disorders, palliative care and many others. As for Medical Massage, I've helped clients with key anatomical and biomechanical factors such as shoulder impingement, posterior rotator cuff injury, bicipital tendinosis, epicondylitis, pronator teres syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, Plantar Fascitis, post-surgery procedures and more, supporting their doctors who treat these patients in any way I can.
People from all walks of life benefit from therapeutic massage including Soldiers returning from war. Massage more than anything is so good for them, re-connecting with their core being they may have lost touch with. Doctors and nurses, EMTs and ER personnel who see so much trauma equally benefit from massage. To all, consider my therapy room your oasis in a storm, your hideaway from the pressures "out there." Experiencing a great massage is like nothing else in this world, and when it's paired with therapeutic-grade aromatic massage oils, positive results are further enhanced.
An integral part of my practice is Essential Oil use, a plant's first line of defense against bacteria, viruses, microbes, fungi and predators, not to mention how AMAZINGLY good they smell! When complimentary aromatic massage therapy is used in conjunction with Western Allopathic Medicine, Eastern Medicine, or Chiropractic Medicine, their practioners can expect even greater positive outcomes.
I've also worked with doctors, nurses, and psychotherapists as my clients and I look forward to working with you too. I am blessed with this profession because I get to help take away people's pain resulting in a level of satisfaction that continues to bring tears of joy. I hope as well that you'll allow me the privilege of creating a custom blended, aromatic massage oil or cream just for you.
Take a look at our extensive glossary of infused oils and our Shop to see for yourself all the MANY possibilities.
