Christine Kharbyngngar, LMT Co-Owner
Christine is a highly experienced therapist interested in many areas of massage therapy. She is a 2006 graduate of the Potomac Massage Training Institute and is state licensed and nationally certified. She has specialized training through Kate Jordan Seminars to work with clients during each trimester of pregnancy and postpartum recovery. Another specialty is Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy - a barefoot massage technique that offers deeper pressure than most modalities.
Kim Paolucci, Reiki Master and Teacher
Kim Paolucci, Reiki Master, has been working with healing energies since her youth. It wasnít until her mid-twenties that she personally experienced the power of Reiki from a trained professional. She quickly benefited from her sessions and decided to take the step to become attuned in order to give herself treatments. She became an Usui Reiki practitioner in 2008. Kim lives by the Chinese proverb, when someone shares something of value with you, and you benefit from it, itís your moral obligation to share it with others. Kim has experience offering Reiki to adults, children and babies. She will be scheduling clients through MassageBook so it will be possible to combine massage and Reiki in a single visit to Massuage.
Elionay Imbert, LMT -
After many years in the accounting field Elionay found that something was missing in his life. With a strong passion for health and fitness,career fields related to physical well-being attracted his attention. He attended the Baltimore School of Massage and found that we become instruments to help the body heal with our touch and intention. He had the opportunity to study professional Thai Massage with some of the great Master Instructors all over the world. The training began at the Thai Institute of Healing Arts, in Arlington, Virginia, and continued with the internationally renowned Sunshine School of Massage in Costa Rica and Greece. It was in Thai Massage that he found my true calling, because it allows one to use whole body mechanics to provide a deep, therapeutic, healing massage. He shared his passion saying this, "I have treated hundreds of people and I can truly testify that everyone can benefit from this modality, and that by practicing Thai Massage you can achieve more with less. I invite you to join me both to experience and to learn the ancient ways of Traditional Thai Massage".
