Kimberly was first introduced to massage therapy as an associate at The Spa at Amelia Island Plantation, a 4-diamond beach resort on Amelia Island, FL. She became very interested in the principles behind massage and found herself wanting to learn more about the benefits of therapeutic bodywork. Kimberly enrolled at the Southeastern School of Neuromuscular and Massage Therapy in 2002. After receiving her license in 2004, she began her role as a licensed massage therapist at The Spa, where she still is still employed. She has worked in a variety of massage facilities, as well as with her own private clientele.
More About Kimberly J.
Kimberly felt a desire to share her knowledge and experiences with new and upcoming therapists. In 2007, Kimberly joined the Southeastern School of Neuromuscular Massage and Bodywork team of instructors as a teacher’s assistant, where she later taught Anatomy and Physiology, Kinesiology, and Clinical Neuromuscular therapy. After seven years of instructing, she took on the role of Program Director and Clinical Supervisor at Southeastern College. Kimberly’s love for teaching and passion for massage makes her a great addition to the Florida School of Advanced Bodywork, where she currently teaches the fundamentals of massage in the Principles and Practice and Anatomy and Physiology.

Kimberly joined the Advanced Muscle Therapy team two years ago, with intentions of growing her clinical practice in structural bodywork. Her knowledge and clinical background help provide the clients of Advanced Muscle Therapy a modality of massage that is complementary to physical therapy, personal training, and ART. Treatment plans are made to decrease discomfort and pain associated with musculoskeletal ailments from overuse, injury, or poor posture by reprogramming the body. This type of soft tissue manipulation can help reduce recovery time between training sessions and increase performance activity.
