I have chronic back pains from work and hockey, and she always provides immediate and lasting relief regardless of the severity. She is very knowledgeable and always learning new techniques to provide me the best care available. Always a smile and never in a rush, I highly recommend Kaylen to anyone and everyone. Be sure to make your appointments early, she books up very quickly but rightfully so!” – Wil S.

“I have been seeing Kaylen since she first graduated from West Coast College of Massage Therapy in 2013. Since that day I will not see anybody else for my regular monthly maintenance. As I am a Martial Arts student with a desk job those appointments are much needed. Kaylen is so knowledgeable about human anatomy, she is always able to quickly identify and address the source of my pain. Kaylen will also provide advice on stretches and exercises that I am able to do in between appointments to limit my discomfort. In addition to her extensive knowledge of the body she is also very welcoming and kind, since the first day I met her she has always made me feel very at ease and comfortable. I have since recommended her to friends and other members of my family and I will continue to do so.” — Holly E.
“I have been a patient of Kaylen’s for over three years. During that time, she has helped to reverse the negative effects of my past 10 years of martial arts training. I look forward to each of my appointments as Kaylen does a superb job of helping me to relax while leaving my muscles feeling rejuvenated. Kaylen specializes in targeting deep muscle groups which often alleviates the discomforts and stiffnesses that I encounter frequently. Additionally, Kaylen always makes sure that you get the time you are scheduled for as she puts her patients first.” — Nathan C.

I continue to be impressed by Kaylen’s gifted ability to heal and intuitively adjust her treatment to suit my needs accordingly. I especially appreciate Kaylen’s passion for her profession and her level of depth and understanding of the complexity of the human body. Over the years I have clearly sensed that being a massage therapist is more than just a profession for Kaylen. Kaylen brings great wisdom and passion to each session and has helped me find relaxation, healing and a level of peace that I am most appreciative of. I highly recommend Kaylen as a massage therapist for anyone who is in need of healing and treatments.” — Suman B.

“I have been a patient of Kaylen for over 2 years now and she continues to be my only choice for a registered massage therapist. It took me a while to find the right therapist for my needs and I was immediately sold after my first session with her. She listens to what my needs are and provides the proper attention and help to get my body back on track. Her style and technique is accommodating to all body types and I have recommended her to my family and friends. Having an RMT that is caring and listens to your needs is essential for our overall health and I am fortunate to have found this with Kaylen.” — Michelle D.
“Kaylen is blessed with a sixth sense about what the body needs in terms of therapeutic massage. In my case, once I had explained to her where I have chronic pain, as a result of a double mastectomy and reconstruction for breast cancer seven years ago, and I had showed her what my implants look like now, she mapped out a breast massage plan that gave me great relief from pain over the four or so weeks that I saw her.
We also saw quite a transformation in the texture and look of my chest, where I have implants underneath my pectoral muscles because there is no more breast tissue to hold them in place.
As well as being gifted with an innate sense of how the body responds to massage and an ability to apply what she has learned through your program, Kaylen also demonstrated a great deal of compassion, respect and kindness in her relations and treatment of me. It did a lot for my self esteem. This is a young woman who will make a great difference in many people’s lives. You are fortunate to have her as a student and I was fortunate to have her as a intern therapist.” -- Carol T. (A patient during internship)
