Hello, I am Kim Larabee.
I have been a licensed massage therapist for just over 5 years and I am also a massage therapy instructor at Mildred Elley.
What stands out most about my massage techniques is my willingness to go the extra mile for every client. I practice a very integrative massage, tailoring elements of Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports and Trigger-Point Therapy as needed for each individual client. Together, my clients and I will create a custom treatment plan to alleviate daily aches and pains and promote longevity through wellness and relaxation.
So come book a session; your needs await me!
I look forward to continuing the work I love so very much and working with you all at my new home, The Hair Studio.
I'm new to the Berkshires but I bring with me my 24 years of experience, my passion for color and my love of the hair industry. I pride myself on thorough hair consultations, really listening to my clients and getting them the look they want and love.
