Kristy Keck is the owner and sole practitioner of Maryland Licensed Massage Therapy LLC.. She is licensed by the Maryland State Board of Massage Therapy Examiners and is also a professional member of the American Massage Therapy Association. She completed the Professional Massage training program at the Baltimore School of Massage in Advanced Massage and Bodywork including the study of Anatomy and Physiology and the Clinical Application of Massage. Kristy is currently studying Anatomy Trains assessment and function as well as Fascial Release for Structural Balance.
She entered into private practice in 2000 as A Mother's Touch Massage Therapy. After many rewarding years working with pregnant women and their families, Kristy expanded her specialties to include the treatment of chronic pain and musculoskeletal dysfunctions. The results evolved to become Maryland Licensed Massage Therapy in 2010.
Kristy specializes in treating chronic pain as well as pre-natal and post partum massage therapy. Her down-to-earth holistic approach combines compassion, knowledge and intuition with clinical expertise. She provides a custom therapy session based on the patient's individual needs and may use a variety of massage and bodywork modalities to produce the most effective and lasting results.
Having over 20 years clinical experience in massage and over 300 hours of continuing education courses, she has a number of different 'tools' or methods to choose from when providing care. Some of the massage therapy and bodywork modalities Kristy has studied extensively include Swedish, Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Therapy, Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation, Chakra Balancing and Pre-natal/Post Partum Massage.
Her focus is in identifying and treating the source of soft tissue imbalance as opposed to just treating the symptoms. Her passion for working with and understanding fascia (connective tissue) has led her to begin advanced studies of the Anatomy Trains Myofascial Meridians which were discovered by Tom Myers LMT, a widely respected pioneer in the field of professional massage.
Kristy is the proud mom of four children; Taylor, Jacqui, Ian and Stella. She enjoys gardening, pilates, yoga, hiking, swimming, music festivals and farmers markets. She has a history of volunteering at wildlife rehabilitation centers and spent a few years working with Eleanor Fletcher (aka The Turtle Lady) in Juno Beach FL where she participated in sea turtle rescue, rehabilitation and protection.
" Calming the nervous system is a vital component to creating a healing massage therapy experience. In such an environment, the body's innate systems are free to create balance by releasing tension/restriction/negativity. You add focused/mindful/purposeful tissue manipulation to the mix and significant results are achieved! "
