After a more than 20-year career in retail, Kim Ryan heeded the encouragement of her husband, friends, and thoroughly wrung out dish towels to pursue an education at the Salter massage school. Today she’s a member of ABMP—Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals—and dedicates her life to helping do away with the stress of others. Ryan’s custom massages take on many forms, such as flowing Swedish strokes to improve range of motion in limbs, but they are all consciously geared toward giving clients a relaxing respite. When not melting muscles in her quaint studio, Kim can be found donating her massage skills for assisted living facilities and other worthy causes.
