Kim Hilliard, LMT, Licensed, Certified Massage Therapist, Neuromuscular Therapist
Since 1998, Kim has been providing top quality massage to Islanders and visitors alike. A 1997 graduate of Heartwood Institute's Advanced Massage Therapist training with over 800 hours, Kim continues to study with the Paul St. John Method of Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT); the Howard Rontal method of Myofascial Release Massage (MFR); CORE Structural Integration, and is also a Level II Reiki practitioner. Kim is a Professional Member of the American Massage Therapy Association and has passed the National Certification Exam for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork.
Believing that any healing process begins with allowing the body/ mind/ spirit to return back to its inherent balance, Kim draws on her extensive training and experience, and with confident, intuitive hands helps to facilitate each person's journey back to health and well-being.
Swedish Massage is deeply relaxing and extremely beneficial to the circulatory system. Myofascial and connective tissue work unwinds habitual holding patterns in the body, allowing restored movement and flexibility. NMT works with the nervous system to restore healthy muscle function. Combining these, along with the natural healing energy of Reiki, Kim creates each session to best suit the needs and goals of each client.

"In Kim's capable and experienced hands, I received more than a therapeutic massage for my troubled shoulder. I got light and love. That may sound corny, but it's how I felt. This small woman has a huge heart and a ton of skill honed over many years of practice. I left with my shoulder relieved and energized, and the feeling that Kim is doing the exact work she was meant to do. How often do you get to see that? I was so fortunate to have been on her table to benefit from it. She brings pure love to her practice. That, along with skill, is magic."
Lois McNulty, Newburyport, MA

"The most amazing thing to me about Kim....is the incredibly consistent high quality of her work. ... She is a gift to anyone who is fortunate enough to find her"
Patricia Newell-Bennett, Chilmark.
"Kim worked on me doing general massage and she also (worked with) my knee following a total knee replacement where all the tissues surrounding the joint were painfully inflamed and tight. Her work was extraordinary. She seemed to know exactly where to go and how much pressure to exert. I felt like I was learning the value of massage in a totally new way! And my knee, which had been stuck in pain, began to heal under her very strong and competent hands. ... Her manner is warm and caring and I always have the sense of her strong personal integrity. She is a first class massage therapist"
Lea Delacour, MSW
