Welcome, and thanks for you interest in Body Elite Massage. This website is designed to answer any questions you may have about me, massage, and its benefits to you.
My name is Kelly, I was born and raised right here in Austin, TX and have loved every minute of it. It’s a great place to live, play, raise a family, and work, but I wasn’t always convinced about the work part. In 2001 I was working in an office as an Administrative Assistant and was very unhappy with my job. I decided I needed to change careers while I still could. There were many options and looked into all of them very thoroughly, but wasn’t excited by what I found, I was beginning to get very discouraged. One night in late 2001, a friend of mine gave me my first massage; the proverbial light bulb came on. I was so amazed by how I good I felt after my session. In the weeks that followed I started looking in to massage schools and found one I really liked. I enrolled at The Lauterstein-Conway Massage School in town in March 2002 and completed the first semester of training and internship in November 2002. I started working as a massage therapist in February 2003 at The Body Therapy Center (a very well known institution among the active in Austin). I eventually returned to Lauterstein-Conway in September 2003 to take more advanced massage courses.
I am a firm believer in massage; it can benefit everyone in one-way or another. If you have a chronic pain from repetitive use strain or an acute injury, massage can help you. Whether you are an athlete training for an event, a weekend warrior, a gardener, or if you just like to be pampered, massage can help you. I feel that it is very important for me to establish long-term and personal relationships with my clients; it is the best way for me to help them achieve lasting health and fitness goals.
