A trip to Kelly Ard’s studio, located inside Fortier Chiropractic, reveals a lone massage table in the center of a private room decorated with Asian-inspired artwork. An upward glance reveals Kelly’s secret weapons: four parallel bars suspended from the ceiling. This unconventional setup allows Kelly to put her hands and feet to work during deeply relaxing massages. The bars help her balance as she uses her feet and heels to apply extra-deep pressure during ashiatsu and Ashi-Thai massage. In addition to specialty modalities, she also performs traditional styles such as Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massage.

Fully licensed and certified (LMT #12074), Kelly received more than 500 hours of classroom instruction in the areas of anatomy, physiology, and pathology as a massage-therapy student at Lane Community College and has personally performed more than 2,500 hours of massage. Though clients may enjoy the serenity and seclusion of her studio, Kelly also travels to perform chair massages at local business, organizations, and furniture warehouses that sell stressed-out chairs.
