Kelly Jonsson - Registered Massage Therapist
IMPACT Health Innisfail
Kelly had been living in the Innisfail area for 15 years. She moved here to get out of the city and loves rural life- except for the winter driving! She is a home schooling mother of 7 children (including twins!) and now also has a son-in-law.
Kelly became a massage therapist because massage has made such a difference in her life. She had repetitive strain injury in her shoulders and arms from her previous work, and regular massage made all the difference. For that reason, she loves working on shoulders and can sympathize with your pain.
She is passionate about Somatic/Body- Based Therapies. We Unconciously hold emotional trauma in our bodies, which manifests as pain. She spent several years working to become a Rosen Method Bodywork Practitioner, but for practical reasons decided to pursue Massage Therapy instead. Her experience with the Rosen Method helps to inform her of what clients are dealing with when they come in to see her.
As a massage therapist, she offers a practical and confident therapeutic touch, as well as a safe space to rest and relax under her hands.
