About Kylan R. Skinner LMT BCTMB
I was raised in the country in Eastern Washington most of my life. I grew up in a large family with 4 athletic siblings and a strict ethical background. At a young age I became attracted to all sports, softball, basketball, volleyball, and also running track. I began my journey with sports and became very aggressive and competitive with all. I spent many hours in weight rooms and perfecting my game, but also ignoring my body in pain.
My path to becoming a Massage Therapist came to me when I was in a auto accident at 17. I had all my thoughts of going off to college playing sports come to a halt, and I knew I had a different road to be on. With several changes in my life as well as chiropractic care, physical therapy, and massage therapy I was able to go to my high school graduation with ease. Although I missed out on a few events, I have no regrets. I learned so much about my body and knew that if I couldn't be that athlete that I once was I would do the next best thing and work with them. So I moved to Kitsap County and started my new life by enrolling in college and creating my vision.
I graduated from Ashmead College with honors in 2002. I have continued my education in the health care field with several continuing education courses around the world and in local colleges.
I believe through education with skills, wisdom, and bodywork, my clients can achieve an integrated awareness of their own bodies. With this collaborative relationship I hope to bring my clients back to a healthy balance. ~Kylan
