Jarrod Reed, LMT
Licensed Massage Therapist
Deep Tissue & Trigger Point Specialist
Jarrod is a graduate of the Therapeutic Massage/Integrated Health Care program at Finger Lakes Community College in Canandaigua, NY. Jarrod began his education in Health Sciences at SUNY Cortland and decided that he wanted a career that provided treatment for those people seeking improved quality of life through the holistic benefits massage could offer. Jarrod considers himself a “muscle therapist,” seeking to provide therapeutic results and relief for his clients, rather than a superficial experience with massage.
Jarrod incorporates several techniques into his work including Connective Tissue and Trigger Point Therapy, Swedish/Relaxation, and Reflexology. His approach to Swedish/Relaxation massage relies on a heavier hand, bordering on Connective Tissue Therapy to achieve maximum results for his clients. He is very conscientious of his client’s needs and preferences, and is very professional in his performance. Jarrod’s hands-on skills are gifted, and he has the uncanny ability to seek out the most elusive tension in the body. Jarrod is also certified in Ayurvedic Bodywork, including Abhyanga, foot reflexology, and marma therapy.

Kim Santamaria, MS, RN
Energy Nurse Healer
Kim has been a member of the nursing profession for 39 years. She obtained her Bachelors and Masters in Nursing from Roberts Wesleyan College and her practice supports a holistic model of nursing care. Her membership in the Sigma Theta Tau National Nursing Honor Society and the American Holistic Nurse Association supports her belief in the highest level of nursing practice. She has worked as a manager, as faculty at a college of nursing, in staff development, and as a nurse entrepreneur. Kim has been instrumental in the integration of holistic care to a family practice, long term care, and the acute care setting. Kim has spoken at conferences on both the international and national level and strives to help people find their woundology and heal it so they may find peace and well-being. Though Kim is trained in both Reiki and Healing Touch, her clients find her work highly intuitive and healing on all levels. Many have stated the work allowed them to move to a new level of spirituality and connection with the Divine. Her work with end of life has allowed peace for not only the patient, but the family as well.
Kim's research is based in "Healing the Wounded Healer Nurse." She feels nurses must heal their own woundology in order to build transpersonal relationships with those they care for. Kim's program for nurses allowed them lowered stress levels, better health and self-awareness, less burn out, and greater joy in their profession. Kim also has a passion for working with Veterans as many have found energetic healing very supportive to their old woundology and fractured souls.
