TREE OF LIFE SPA STAFF
Kim Sottosanti, LMT:
Kim began her healing journey in 1998 while studying at the Monterey Institute of Touch, then becoming a Licensed Massage Therapist. It was then that she found her true passion and continued studying various modalities bringing her deeper into her practice. Healing takes courage and Kim feels privileged to have the opportunity to facilitate healing and transformation to all those who make that commitment to themselves and their world by coming to the Tree of Life.
Some people may not be conscious of what it is that is holding them back and may lose the point of reference of what it is to be free. Kim creates a space for her clients to feel secure enough to drop into their heart and leave their minds behind so healing can then truly occur. She uses her skills to help open blocked pathways that have been created in some cases, by a lifetime of trauma and certain emotional experiences. Therapeutic massage relieves pain and stress from the mind and body while restoring balance and the feeling of mental and physical wellness.
I graduated from the Rolf Institute of Structural Integration in Boulder, Colorado in 1992. I've practiced in New York, Montana, and now at the Tree of Life.
Rolfing is a clinical hands-on technique that was developed by Dr. Ida Rolf in the 1940's. Her main goal was to organize the human body structure in relation to gravity. Dr. Rolf believed that the imbalances in structure placed demands on the body's pervasive network of soft tissues: muscles, fascia, tendons and ligaments, thereby creating compensations throughout the body structure.
Dr. Rolf posed this fundamental question: "What conditions must be fulfilled in order for the human body-structure to be organized and integrated in gravity so that the whole person can function in the most optimal and economical way?"
Her life's work was devoted to this investigation which led to the system of soft tissue manipulation and movement education that we now call Rolfing®. In order to pass along her work to others and to make the education process accessible, she developed an expedient series of ten sessions, which came to be known as the Ten Series.
I offer this Ten Series as well as customized individualized sessions according to your needs.
I'm also trained in other complimentary modalities including Myoskeleton Alignment, Cranial Sacral Therapy, and Medical and Deep Tissue Massage.
I look forward to being a partner in your healing journey.
