My name is Mary Kinlen and I am dedicated to promoting better health and wellbeing through aromatic massage therapy.
CREDENTIALS: My journey into becoming a holistic practitioner began in 1969, when I gave massages to friends and saw how it affected their spirit, emotions, thinking and physical bodies. In 1979 alternative therapies healed me when modern medicine couldn't, so I began studying alternative therapies of all kinds, finally choosing therapeutic massage using aromatic essential oil-infused massage oils and creams, energy therapy and cupping.
In 2007, I was professionally trained at the Indiana Therapeutic Massage School; then licensed. In 2012, I was board-certified with the California Massage Therapy Council (CMTC #33038) to the present day. In 1993, I was trained in Healing Touch Biofield Energy Therapy by Janet Mentgen, founder, having performed over 400 sessions. I also possess two college-university degrees ('88 and '06).
SERVICES I AM PROFICIENT IN:
SWEDISH MASSAGE: This form of massage not only FEELS ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL to receive but did you know it actually benefits all 11 systems of your body (see Benefits of Massage at www.RiversideHolisticMassage)? Conditions I treat include but are not limited to stress of all kinds, lupus, fibromyalgia, heart disease, cancer, diabetes, injuries, liposuction, pain, respiratory, anxiety, depression, trauma, P.L.S., M.S., skin and eating disorders, palliative care, hospice and more. Massage isn't just good for your muscles, bones and skin. It's good for your internal organs, your cognition/mind, your emotional self, and your spirit. This is one of the biggest reasons I do this work: I get to witness the "before and after" results; it's like night and day!
MEDICAL (DEEP TISSUE) MASSAGE: Conditions include but are not limited to "knots" (trigger points), and key anatomical and biomechanical factors such as shoulder impingement, posterior rotator cuff injury, bicipital tendinosis, epicondylitis, pronator teres syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, Plantar Fascitis, post-surgery procedures and other kinds of pain, supporting their doctors who treat these folks in any way I can.
MEDICUPPING: This modality is used for weight loss, and detoxification from toxins of all kinds including pestcides, food additives, synthetic chemcials of all kinds including chemotherapy poisons, tobacco, cocaine, opioid and other drug addiction residues that can keep you craving the drug you're trying not to use, diet and air pollution, all of which can, at some point, turn off the part of your DNA that protects you from getting cancer; swelling from lipo suction and edema, weakened lymphatic systems, and more. Cupping gets rid of cellular metabolic waste that is a big part of the pain cycle. Cupping is used at the Olympics to relieve pain (remember all of your circles on swimmer Michael Phelps?).
HEALING TOUCH BIOFIELD ENERGY THERAPY: Uses hands-on and energy-based techniques to balance and align the human energy field. HT is used for pain control, neck and back problems, anxiety reduction, skin problems, wound and fracture healing, P.M.S., A.L.S., M.S., HIV-AIDS, hypertension, heart and lung disease, pre and post surgical procedures, headaches/migraines, autoimmune disorders, eating disorders, diabetes, cancer, arthritis, rehabilitation, chronic fatigue syndrome, disease prevention, spiritual enhancement, emotional pain, depression, and more.
ESSENTIAL OIL-INFUSED MASSAGE OILS, CREAMS, AND/OR SPRAYS: Employed in the above alternative modalities because they ENHANCE EFFECTIVENESS as well as that of most allopathic modern medical procedures you may be undertaking or recovering from, and most all alternative therapies. Unlike drugs, essential oils leave no residue in the body; rather, they enter your body, perform their task, and leave. An essential oil is a plant's first line of defense against bacteria, viruses, fungi, microbes, and predators. And because the same four nucleotides in human DNA are also found in plant DNA, they work in harmony with our systems and benefit not only our bodies but effect our mental and emotional state as well plus their aromas are truly amazing, same as you find in nature.
THERAPY ROOM: There is beautiful music playing in the background which enhances the ability of the client to feel relaxed right away, in effect, quickly setting up the body's transition into a state of self-healing.
What will put you at ease before you make your first appointment are the many additional testimonials you can read at my official site-- www.RiversideHolisticMassage.com, some of which date back 25 years.
I've also worked with doctors, nurses, and psychotherapists as my clients and look forward to working with you too. I am blessed with this profession because I get to help take away people's pain resulting in a level of satisfaction. I hope as well that you will allow me the privilege of creating a custom blended, aromatic massage oil or cream to take home with you that will continue to benefit health and wellbeing.
Take a look at our extensive glossary of essential oil-infused massage oils at both our Shop and by clicking on "More" at my website. I offer 395 products, mostly massage oils and creams I use on my clients. You may request an essential oil or blend of EOs for your session.
