Kim has had a private studio in Mill Valley for 18 years and many of her clients have been with her since the beginning. Her outdoor adventure lifestyle, competitive athletic career and meditative practices taught her early on how to work with the limitations of injury and the many challenges in life. She is able to share these lifelong lessons with her clients.

Kim has been studying for over 20 years with Jean Claude West, a motor control specialist, who has been an incredible support, inspiration, and mentor to her and her work. She has been influenced by the Rolfing® technique, homeopathy, Chinese medicine (acupuncture), Ayurveda, naturopathy and many different styles of chiropractic including atlas orthogonal work and multiple physical therapy techniques.
