About Us

Kimberly E Austin
Healing Arts Institute, June 2015-September 2015, 500 hours
Philosophy: I'm a firm believer of helping people, either with projects, connecting people, or relieving physical pain. I listen to what the client wants and I deliver it for a fulfilling, refreshing massage.

I originally started my life out as wanting to be an accountant, and was one for 2 years at small CPA firms auditing. But something was always missing. I knew I loved to massage people, ever since I was a child, I'd massage my family members all the time. After my job ended I decided to take the leap and go to massage school. I ended up at the wonderful Healing Arts Institute in Citrus Heights, CA, where I learned to do Therapeutic massage, and chair massage. Later I took a Cupping Massage class, which I loved, and now incorporates that into my work. 

In my spare time I love to crochet, I finally got to join the Crochet Guild of Sacramento! I love hanging out with my husband, my dog, and seeing my nieces when I go visit my family. 

This is a one-person organization. So please be patient with me if I don't pick up immediately, I may be in session with a client. My hours are 10am-7pm, if you wish to talk to me, please leave me a voicemail message, or text me. I will get back to you as soon as I can. Thank you for your time.

*Just because someone has education in something, it doesn't make them an expert. I would look for someone with a certification from a course that has been approved by an accredited organization, such as Vodder School for Manual Lymph Drainage that is approved by LANA (Lymphology Association of N. America and National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) )
