"The same stream of life that runs through my veins night and day runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measures. It is the same life that shoots in joy through the dust of the earth in numberless blades of grass and breaks into tumultuous waves of leaves and flowers.”
With a compassionate, present touch, I support people in finding relief from chronic pain and tension, releasing unconscious holdings, and discovering more ease and vitality. My capacity to listen deeply to the intelligence and health of the body is a key component of my work. I am continually awed at the body’s ability to restore balance and wellbeing when we slow down and connect to the healing forces always present in the body.

Biodynamic Craniosacral Practitioner
& Massage Therapist
“From my experience, the therapist's presence is possibly the most important aspect in allowing me to relax and unwind. Kelly's presence is spacious and accepting. She focuses precisely on the detail of the anatomical level, while remaining sensitive to mental-emotional response. I have received a lot of bodywork, and find that a session with Kelly allows me to enter a healing space which facilitates deep change with ease. The methods she uses are subtle, yet profound - a perfect match for Kelly's patience and sensitivity. Kelly's bodywork touches my nervous system in a way that other therapies have not been able to.” –Julie

I have been a dedicated healing arts practitioner since 2001 when I graduated from massage school at the lovely Heartwood Institute in Garberville, CA. In the years since, I have continued to immerse myself in a wide range of healing practices with over 2000 hours of ongoing training.
My intention as a practitioner is one of deep listening and allowing the body’s own intelligence to respond. Early on in my practice, I experienced how the body has an innate ability to restore itself and recover balance, as well as establish a sense of wholeness and wellbeing. When I felt this healing force directly in myself and in my clients, and witnessed the body's incredible therapeutic capabilities, I truly understood the degree of transformation that is possible. This is the biodynamic awareness that guides all of my sessions, from medical massage to the subtlest touch.
I currently have a private practice in Ashland, Oregon, and also offer end-of-life care to Rogue Valley community members on hospice. Additionally, I am an instructor at the Ashland Institute of Massage, where I enjoy being part of each students’ journey to find their own unique healing expression. I feel so fortunate to be able to share in this remarkable field of bodywork in these rich and heart-expanding ways!
“Kelly is a brilliant therapist with a wide range of training. Along with her incredible knowledge and understanding of the body, she meets her clients afresh each session and intuitively knows exactly what to do and where to work to relieve stress and pain and to create a new and totally rejuvenated client who climbs off her table. Kelly is truly a master therapist, and anyone lucky enough to work with her will be extremely fortunate and grateful to experience her loving hands and healing gifts.” –Sandy
“Kelly’s work takes me into a deep, still and open space inside, where it feels like anything is possible and whatever is in the way of healing can be gently released. Her presence and gentle support provides a space in which any disturbance in my system can naturally unwind and integrate with the greater whole. Afterwards I feel much lighter and deeply resourced.” –Devan
“Sessions with Kelly make me feel like I’m floating in a boundless ocean, supported by and in touch with the mysterious healing power of life itself.” –Yvonne
