About Kelly
Kelly Kellerhals has been a Nationally Certified and State of Iowa Licensed Massage Therapist since 2000.  She has an additional certification in Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT), and has completed training through the Upledger Institute in CranioSacral Therapy (CST), levels I and II.  Kelly earned her BA in 1997 from the University of Northern Iowa and then decided to embark on a new adventure in 1999, choosing to begin massage therapy training.  Upon completion, she opened her private practice, which she has enjoyed since that time.  Kelly also gained five years experience as a massage therapy educator, instructing students in anatomy, physiology and pathology, as well as a wide variety of aspects of the massage therapy profession.  She is an active professional member of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA). In addition to CST and NMT, Kelly's professional specialties/interests include pain relief and management, deep tissue work, infant and maternity massage, and natural & holistic approaches to health.

Kelly’s Philosophy and Beliefs
Kelly believes that humans were created with a purpose and, as such, were given a body, mind and spirit uniquely designed with the necessary tools to fulfill their purpose.  She believes we are equipped with an inherent wisdom, an “Inner Physician” if you will, and the ability to overcome a variety of challenges confronting us every day.  However, our internal environment – much like the external – can lose its state of balance, and require assistance to return itself to that delicate state in which it so naturally thrives.  Kelly believes , in a majority of cases, the most effective means of providing such assistance comes from listening to and working with the body, gently guiding it to a place from which it can freely heal itself, resulting in a more vibrant state of health and well being.  That is why she is so strongly committed to massage and CranioSacral therapy, working with others to educate our community and the world to reveal our great potential for healing the body, mind and spirit.  Kelly is honored to be part of such great work, and to do so with the amazing people met along the way.
