“I believe that by paying attention to our bodies our minds relax. By letting go for just an hour, you can accomplish a greater state of wellness.”
-Kimberly Shepheard, LMT, Owner
Kimberly Shepheard is a seasoned massage therapist with a strong background in client assessment and long term treatment programs. She trained at the Alpha Institute of Massage Therapy in Port St. Lucie, Florida, graduating in December of 2000.
As a talented body worker, Kim has helped thousands of people to feel better and take care of themselves through various modalities such as Sports, Reflexology, Thai, Hot Stone and Hydrotherapy massage.
In 2004 and 2005 Kim worked with and studied under Anne Bramham of Astecc Spa Education, world-traveling therapist and spa trainer. Kim gained insight into treating clients holistically through various spa and home care treatments. It was here that she learned how important spa therapy is, and that it is not pampering, but that every treatment has a purpose for well-being and prevention. Following up with clients was put into practice and results were immediately seen with some clients and proved more gradual with others, but the goal was always the same: to affect change. This experience was what ultimately led her inspiration to start her own business, Zen Mountain Massage.
Kim also learned Thai Massage under Margie Meshew of Universal Touch, Inc., while working in Florida at the Boca Raton Resort & Club's Spa Palazzo from 2002 through 2004. Her training in Hot Stone therapy was completed here as well, and she performed literally hundreds of Hot Stone massage treatments at Spa Palazzo.
After traveling to England and finishing her B.A. in English Literature in 2004, Kimberly left her therapy practices to pursue a career in writing and marketing. Upon relocation to Denver in 2009 she re-entered the field of massage therapy. Her goals are to build a stable, reputable massage business in the Denver and Aurora areas through the practice of several different modalities, adding value to the treatment given her clients at Zen Mountain Massage.
Kim sees women clients only and specializes in pre and post natal therapy and lymphatic drainage massage.
