Kim Hibbard, LMT
A search for a vocation led me to massage therapy. Some people find a vocation early in life; others of us do not. I have been a teacher, a tutor, and a Christian Educator, but it was not until I found this work that I felt that I had found my calling – what Joseph Campbell would describe as my “bliss.” Here, my entire being – body, mind, and spirit – can work towards one end: to help others achieve well-being and wholeness. To paraphrase Frederick Buechner, I have found a place where my deepest joy can meet a human need.

We are embodied beings; we experience the world physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually through our bodies. Therefore, if we are to fully experience well-being and wholeness, we cannot ignore our bodies. As a massage therapist, my primary goal is to help my clients become aware of how their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual experiences are connected to one another and expressed through their bodies. This awareness, I believe, can help us live our lives more fully, as we are intended to do.
