Kyla Mathieson is the latest Keremeos entrepreneur to open up shop on Seventh Avenue.
Mathieson recently open K Mountain Massage Therapy, located at 618A 7th Avenue.
With two and a half years experience in the field, this is Mathieson’s first practice of her own. She is trained in therapeutic, (broken bones, activity related issues) rehabilitation (skeletal, muscular or nervous systerm) and systemic (multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, arthritis related issues massage therapies, so can help patients with a wide variety of health issues.
“It’s better if people focus on preventive therapy,” Mathieson said, “for example, an office worker would benefit from a monthly session, just to get all the kinks out after days spent sitting at a desk.”
Mathieson said that she also provides patients with “homework”- extra exercises they can do at home to help reduce their symptoms. She added that she has training in various styles of massage, including Swedish massage.
Mathieson’s clinic is approved by most extended medical plans. She will be open Wednesday and Thursday from 1 to 8 p.m., and on Saturdays from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. She can be reached at 250-499-9029. A website should be up and active in the next few days.
