Kim Hilliard, LMT
Licensed and 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.
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.
All major credit cards accepted. Open Year-Round.

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

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.
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"

Kim. Sorry to say I'll need to reschedule. Have to be at white

Thursday or Friday afternoon at 4pm or something like it?
Thanks and sorry to ask to reschedule."
