Kim is trained as both a Licensed Massage Therapist and as a Certified Energy Therapist. She earned a B.S. in Kinesiology from Texas A&M University before relocating from Texas to attend the Brian Utting School of Massage in Seattle. She has been in private practice for over 20 years in the Bellevue and Issaquah area specializing in injury treatment, pregnancy massage, wellness massage, and Energy Medicine. She has worked in conjunction with chiropractors, midwives, acupuncturists, and physicians in support of the client's health and healing.
Kim was an instructor at Lake Washington Institute of Technology, and was a co-designer of the massage program curriculum. She taught Anatomy & Physiology, Kinesiology, Treatment Massage and Pathology. She began her study in Energy Medicine in 2012 and completed a 200 hour certification course. She continues her study as an apprentice to Gloria Two-Feathers, the founder of Earth Walk School of Energy Medicine, to deepen not only her skill in doing the work, but also her understanding of the work itself and the profound impact that it can facilitate in people's healing and in their lives.
Kim believes deeply in the body's ability to heal itself. A safe and grounded space allows for the body to heal physically, and as importantly, mentally and spiritually. She believes in the power of connection to bring about healing through a skilled therapeutic approach, excellent palpation skills, extensive knowledge of musculoskeletal anatomy, and as importantly, through the more subtle energies of touch and presence.
