Kim Keiler

LMT

Massage Therapist

Kim has Over 25 Years Of Experience in Traditional & Ayurvedic Massage Therapies

She graduated from Potomac Massage Institute in 1993 and has continued to take courses to enhance her knowledge of the human body and massage techniques. 

Massage therapy can be a powerful ally to your healthcare regimen. Experts estimate that 90% of health problems are stress related. Nothing ages a person faster, both internally and externally, than stress. While it is impossible to totally eliminate anxiety and pressure from everyday living, massage can help manage its effects. Massage therapy does this by decreasing anxiety, enhancing sleep quality, and increasing concentration, circulation, and energy. Research continues to show the enormous benefits of massage which range from helping with chronic diseases, neurological disorders, soft tissue injuries, to alleviating tensions of everyday life. Taking part in a regularly scheduled massage can play a huge part in how healthy you will be with each passing year. Consider massage appointments a necessary part of your preventative health and wellness plan.

Specializes In:

  • Deep Tissue Massage

  • Myofacial Massage

  • Swedish Massage

I’ve been going to yoga classes here for a year and a half. I wish I would’ve found yoga 30 years ago. With Deborah‘s help I now stand straighter I’ve gotten rid of lower back pains and have gained body strength. Yoga is harder for men but it will pay off if you put some time into it!

K Brennan | Age 66

Love! Kent Island Yoga and Wellness. Debra is an instructor, guide, teacher with in-depth knowledge & years of expertise. A true “Master Teacher” of Yoga. Most important for me was to be guided with integrity, knowledge & compassion. I found a sensitive, healthy & whole community in which to practice & explore Yoga.

K Hill

Debra is phenomenal, educated, and truly remarkable at what she does. She reads movement of the body so intricately and honestly that she knows what you’re feeling and what she can do to find ways to relax and or balance “you” better. I have been working with Debra for 6 years privately.
