Kim Nedrow, LMT, BCTMB, CST-D
Founder & President
Kim Nedrow has been a clinical Licensed Massage Therapist since 2000 and is certified in CranioSacral Therapy (CST) at the Diplomate level (CST-D) and has been practicing CST and SomatoEmotional Release (SER) exclusively since 2001. Working directly with military and veterans, traumatic brain injury, cancer patients, children, disabilities, and hospice, Kim regularly donates her services at no charge to those in need, and who are either under-insured, non-insured, or when insurance does not cover treatments and there is an inability to pay.
Working since 2000, Kim is a Certified Mentor trained by the Upledger Institute, Board Certified in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork, and has years of experience with Washington State’s Traumatic Brain Injury Council, University of Washington Education in Rehabilitation, the Washington Traumatic Brain Injury Strategic Partnership Advisory Council, local government agencies on Alzheimer’s and dementia, pediatrics, disabilities and comfort care for end of life and caregivers.
During treatment sessions, Kim assists in facilitating the client’s own healing process to heal and overcome chronic pain, injuries, disease, post-traumatic stress, and other compensation patterns that may be present using the gentle touch of CranioSacral Therapy. She’s currently working with military veterans and their families dealing with trauma. Using a light, noninvasive touch such as CST allows the client to process and release old patterns of pain and discomfort, whatever they may be, allowing the body to heal.
