PADUCAH - Christine Kiely-Granstaff may be new to the area but brings years of experience to a local established business. Barbara McIntosh, owner of Studio A on Broadway Massage and Nail Wellness Center, has 18 years of natural nail/wellness experience and says, “Of all the years I have been in business I am so happy to have such an experienced therapist such as Christine in this area. I am truly blessed to have been introduced to Christine and to have her bring such knowledge and experience. She is such a positive, uplifting addition to Studio A on Broadway.”
Christine joined Studio A in April of this year and says it’s such a very positive, nurturing atmosphere not only for her as a massage therapist but also for the clients. Christine’s specialties include treating individual clients based on their needs. Some of those specialties include deep tissue massage, relaxation massage, injury prevention and rehabilitation, pre and postnatal massage as well as Manual Lymph Drainage.
“Every person is a candidate for massage” says Christine, “whether you are someone who has an injury and needs help with the healing process, someone who may be stressed out, someone who may just want to treat themselves to something nice, someone who may have lymphatic swelling, migraines, stiff neck or an achy low back. People think, ‘Well there’s nothing wrong with me, I don’t need a massage.’ Basically, if you are alive on this earth, you are a candidate for massage therapy. You do not have to have an excuse.” Christine has been practicing massage therapy for 20 years and when asked what she enjoys most about being a massage therapist she says, “Clients are happy to see me and even happier when they leave. How many professions can actually say that? It’s what I enjoy-that clients leave here much happier than when they arrived.” Over the years she has worked in a variety of environments such as sports rehabilitation, chiropractic office’s, holistic centers and day spas, making her work very eclectic.
Having taught massage therapy on the post-secondary educational level for 17 years, Christine has been involved in teaching, in massage curriculum writing and in program management. She served on the New Hampshire massage therapy advisory board for 9 years prior to moving to Kentucky and has also been involved in the development of the Massage and Bodywork Licensing Exam (MBLEx), an exam used nationally by graduates to become licensed.
