Kathleen M. Murphy
Licensed Massage Therapist
Kathleen is a state-level Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT), nationally certified in therapeutic massage and bodywork (NCTMB), and a certified member of Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals (ABMP). She graduated with honors from her pre-licensing program at AACC's School of Health Professions, and is currently pursuing post-graduate training as a Certified Myofascial Trigger Point Therapist (CMTPT) through the Janet G. Travell, MD Myopain Seminars.
The primary therapeutic focus of Kathleen's practice is pain remediation, incorporating the most effective evidence-informed techniques of Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy within the framework of stress-reducing relaxation massage. Based on the needs of each client, sessions draw on an integrative combination of trigger point protocols as well as Swedish, myofascial, deep tissue, and facilitated stretching techniques.
Kathleen also offers Usui Reiki as an adjunct to manual massage therapy. A gentle, stress-relieving Japanese energetic modality, Usui Reiki is rooted in Shinto and Tendai Buddhist traditions, and helps strengthen the flow of life energy (ki) in the recipient. Kathleen has trained in Usui Reiki (Level III) in the Western tradition with William Lee Rand of The International Center for Reiki Training, and in the Japanese tradition with Frans Steine of The International House of Reiki.
