Brio Kelly, LMT
Brio is a 2015 graduate of Oregon School of Massage. They are licensed in MA. Brio's massage style has been described as, "seek and destroy" but they would tell you it's therapeutic and intuitive. Brio use both gentle and deep techniques, depending on what is needed to release muscle tension or stuckness.
Throughout their massage career Brio has chosen to work in medical settings, where they had the opportunity to work on a variety of body types, doing various levels of activity (sedentary to yoga instructor), and various injuries include motor vehicle and work accidents.
Brio finds the human body fascinating. How muscle and bone work together to allow or impede movement. The interplay of fascia in that equation. How emotions can affect the body in both positive and negative ways. There is so much to learn!
