Kathleen O’Brien, LMT is a graduate of the Palm Beach Academy of Health & Beauty as well as an English literature alumna from the College of William & Mary in Virginia. She has spent the past decade observing the fields of athletic training, personal training, physical therapy, and orthopedic medicine. Her advanced training includes structural integration - a form of deep-tissue massage focused on anatomically realigning the body - as a means of addressing trauma with Rolfer Thomas Meyers, as well as myofascial release, a light and intuitive form of fascial stretching pioneered by physical therapist John Barnes. Her most recent training is in kinesiologist Aaron Mattes' active isolated stretching, a gentle but effective means of lengthening tight muscles and fascia. Kathleen is a true believer in the power of full-body relaxation to complement and optimize orthopedic bodywork, so she incorporates hot stones, hot towels, and essential oils as often as applicable to each client’s needs. She looks forward to meeting you and learning about the ways that she can best assist your body in becoming its healthiest yet.
