MASSAGE THERAPISTS

CHRIS

Hi my name is Chris. I have been practicing massage since I graduated from the Pittsburgh School of Massage Therapy in 2016. I first started massage traveling with my table to client’s homes. I mostly worked on the elderly and very sick. I then joined a chiropractic office and most recently joined a new home of Evolve Wellness Spa. I specialize in deep tissue and sports massage, but also using a light touch to relax and replenish my clients with Swedish and myofascial. Remember to breathe, smile, and I hope to see you in my book next appointment.

 

KYLIE

My name is Kylie  and I am a Licensed Massage Therapist. I graduated from Career Training Academy where I earned my Associates Degree in Specialized Technology in the Advanced Bodyworker Program for Massage Therapy, and gained a vast amount of knowledge allowing me to practice various modalities. Since graduating, I have been working here at Evolve and I can’t begin to describe the pleasure of being able to come to work and help people distress from the hustle and bustle of the ever moving world we live in. This is precisely why I began a career in massage therapy. I wanted to help people rid of their stress and create that safe haven where they can feel like they have no worries or responsibilities for the time being. For my clients, I like to help them feel as if everything is on hold, because for the time being, it is just about them, and helping them to reach whatever goal they may have for the session,  whether it’s releasing some tension/knots or just needing to relax and rejuvenate. I love all the different types of massage but my favorites would have to be Swedish and Therapeutic because these both encompass a key ingredient I believe every massage should have, which is relaxation, and they allow me to release my creative outlet, whether it’s by my approach in movements when performing the massage or cultivating the perfect combination of techniques to use in the session. Swedish massage enables me to deliver those gentle flowing, gliding strokes to truly let your body, as the client, sink into the massage while Therapeutic allows me, as a massage therapist, to get creative in my treatment plan when brainstorming various modalities I can incorporate to help my clients reach their target goal, so I love to perform both of these types of massages whenever the opportunity arises. However, with every client, my goal is always to customize a treatment plan to fit the needs of each individual person and adapt to ensure that they are 100% comfortable during the massage, so I am able to acclimate myself to any modality in order to provide clients with the service of their choice. To me, that’s what massage is, it’s about creating the perfect massage, in a peaceful and nurturing environment, for our clients so that they can come out of the massage feeling like a brand new person who can take on the world…and with no knots or stress!

MATT

I love massage therapy, and one of the things I love most about it is the relaxation that it provides.  I feel that relaxation is one of the most underrated avenues of health care, especially in today’s stress-driven world, for it connects us to the only true healer–the healer within each of us—and it restores and regenerates our vitality and creativity. So when I give a massage, whether using lighter or deeper pressure, my continuous attention is upon a relaxing flow that connects the release of tensions in specific areas of the body, like falling dominoes, until the body can buzz as a whole happy soul again; a bee freed from the keepers toppled tensions to taste again the simple flowering bliss of life. (Without getting scientific about it)! And of course, sometimes certain areas of the body need more attention than others.  I often use an eclectic mix of the modalities I’ve learned over the past ten years: Swedish,  Deep Tissue,  Myofascial, Shiatsu, Reflexology, Lomi Lomi, Medical Massage,  Cherokee Bodywork…I also can’t help but incorporate my Qi Gong practice into the work…and I may have some suggestions for yoga poses that might help.
