LICENSED MASSAGE THERAPIST
A Montana native, Kendall Anderson is a physically active person by nature. While she’s been playing outside and competing in sports all her life, it took her awhile to understand the importance of self-care to counteract her activities. After realizing she had simply adapted to living with consistent pain, she sought out massage therapy, hoping to find relief. The experience clearly made an impression on her, and for the first time, Kendall realized that her body didn’t naturally exist in a state of constant ache!
As she learned more, her interest in becoming a professional Massage Therapist grew, which led her to become a graduate of The Sacred Roots School of Massage Bozeman campus. While completing her studies, Kendall found her motivation in massage was to help individuals facilitate consistent self-care and deep, nourishing, relaxation- hopefully to help those on her table experience how beneficial this type of care can be, far earlier than she did for herself!
Specializing in Myofascial Release, deeply relaxing Swedish Massage, Cupping, and Deep Tissue Massage, Kendall works with a firm and intuitive touch, customizing every treatment for what is needed to achieve the goals laid out before her.
Still active as she ever was, Kendall keeps herself well, both physically and mentally, through Pilates, yoga, weightlifting, hiking, and spending time with her loved ones. Kendall’s passion for bodywork continues to grow, and she is proud to join the Good Medicine team as an opportunity to further develop her skills in practice.
