Meet our new Massage Therapist Kaylen Yates: My name is Kaylen Yates and I am a certified massage therapist currently located in Sacramento, Ca. I graduated from National Holistic Institute, A College of Massage Therapy with the completion of a 900 hour core program. I am trained in
a number of modalities ranging from Relaxation Swedish massage, Deep Tissue massage, Shiatsu massage, Myofascial Release, and Pregnancy massage.
I have always been drawn to helping people and facilitate healing, and have always been involved in fitness and health. In May 2017 I received my Bachelors of Science in Family and Consumer Sciences with a focus in Food and Nutrition from California State University, Sacramento. Once graduated I knew it was time to learn more in Massage Therapy to further my education in wellness for others. My goal is to help facilitate healing and chronic pain through massage.
“When you touch one thing with deep awareness,
you touch everything.”
– Lao Tzu
I offer various modalities of massage. Each session will be customized for what you need. Swedish for more relaxation, deep tissue for tight spots, joint mobilization to increase range of motion, or a combination of various techniques.
Myofascial therapy is very focused work. If you have pain, or trouble moving areas of your body, an initial assessment will tell me what muscles are the root of suffering. These sessions come in a package format, and extra time is needed for assessments.
Massage can help lengthen muscles, but a full focus on stretch can help regain flexibility and open connective tissue to allow more movement for the skeletal system as well as blood flow. Active, passive, or Thai stretches may be used.
