Kasey Coleman, Massage Therapist - MA77751
I graduated from the Sarasota School of Massage Therapy and immediately dove into the medical massage field. I began by working at a medical center under the guidance of a doctor and chiropractor where the majority of patients were car accident victims seeking injury rehabilitation and pain management. The overwhelmingly positive feedback inspired me to become even better so that I could do everything I could to help them.
From there I decided to take Neuromuscular Certification classes that taught me how to work on chronic conditions including: TMJ, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel, sprains, strains, sciatica, neck pain, back pain, knees, Dupuytren's (trigger finger) and plantar fascitis. After that I went and took myofascial classes and NAT Trigger Point certification classes that furthered my anatomical knowledge of the human body and it's bio-mechanics. I'm now also proficient at working on multiple types of headaches, lordosis, kyphosis, scoliosis, and have extensive experience working with people who have disc herniations, spondylolisthesis, spinal fusions, metal rods, and plates.
Beyond massage, my favorite hobby and artistic outlet is makeup artistry. I am a IAP certified makeup artist and specialize in everything from day-to-day makeup to enhance your natural beauty to classy glamorous makeup and even avant garde looks for festivals and events. I also fully understand many women are hesitant to get massages because it can leave you with "massage face" afterwards and make it difficult for you to go do whatever you have going on later in the day, whether it's a business meeting, work, a date, etc. So I'm happy to offer a post-massage service for a customized look to suit your needs afterwards to make your experience more enjoyable and less of a hassle.
Some of my specialties include: Medical, TMJ, Injury & Rehabilitation, Neuromuscular, Trigger Point, Deep Tissue and Myofascial Release
My availability is Tuesday 11am-9pm, Friday 5-9pm and Sunday 11am-9pm
