My name is Kim Lepak and I am a licensed massage therapist and the owner of Healthy Transitions Massage Therapy for Seniors and Those Living with Cancer.
When I became a massage therapist my primary goal was to obtain training in Oncology Massage and be able to offer some comfort to those who are going through or have been through the cancer journey.
The treatments, though often successful are harsh and leave people with permanent side effects. During treatment, these side effects make the battle that much harder.
Massage is certainly no cure for anything, but it does bring comfort and calm and for some people a sense of normalcy in a world that has now become unrecognizable to them.
As well as this work, I am reaching out to the Senior community to offer my services to folks that have lost access to massage.
Some may have been used to getting regular massage earlier in their lives and circumstances changed and they no longer are able to do so. Physical changes happen and illnesses come into our lives and it becomes less of a priority.
So I’m offering to bring massage back to folks who have lost access.
Touch is a basic human need, it doesn’t change just because we’ve become a certain age. If anything it’s more important now than ever. I cover Lakeland, Winter Haven, Auburndale, Bartow, Polk City, and surrounding areas within Polk County.
