Kip Taylor became a massage therapist in 2004, and his practice has spanned four states: Missouri, California, Oregon, and Colorado.
He has been fortunate to work in top tier spas, including Burke Williams Day Spa Pasadena, Ginger Bay Salon in St. Louis, and Forbes 5-Star rated Remede Spa at the St. Regis Aspen.
It is his philosophy that integration of the body and mind will lead to deeper personal agency for the receiver of massage. Swedish, Thai Massage, Lomi Lomi, and Sports Recovery all influence the practice.
