Patricia M. Kern, BS, LMT
Bachelor of Science in Health & Phys. Ed. from Missouri State University, Springfield, MO Diploma from Florida School of Massage Gainesville, FL GA License # MT003620 Member - Assoc. Bodywork & Massage Professionals In the realm of Health Care, the best treatment for almost any condition is the Human Touch with "listening hands". Though this method is ancient, it is still revolutionary and inspiring. About this "Human Touch", she states: "When someone comes to us in pain, and then can walk away pain-free and more mobile, it is truly rewarding. When we see the big sigh of relief from those who arrive fully 'stressed-out', it is relieving to know that we can make a difference for them." Making a home in Roswell, GA with her son, Patricia enjoys outdoor work and play including gardening and hiking, as well as indoor activities such as cooking, yoga, & dancing.

I was drawn to massage by a sincere desire to help relax the mind and body naturally. What I love most about massage is witnessing change in stress level, posture and flexibility immediately after a session. My intention is to free the body of blockage and increase relaxation and energy. Clients feel longer, back open and very relaxed after their session. Sleeping patterns are improved. Pain is relieved instantly~soft tissue manipulation is my passion. I look forward to your session.
Wendy has recovered from both fibromyalgia and a disabling stroke. Massage was instrumental in helping her recovery from her stroke, so she understands the healing power of touch. Since she has experienced long-term severe pain and has been disabled, she has decided to dedicate her life to helping other people recover from pain or disability, as she has done. She graduated from ASHA in 2008 and has taken a lot of advanced continuing education since then to help her help others. She is certified in orthopedic massage, and often uses integrative craniosacral techniques and Thai massage to help promote healing as well.
