About the Practitioners


Tara Keeling, LMT, CKTP

 Tara is licensed by the State of Illinois and is an Associated Bodywork & Massage Professional (ABMP) member. She is a 2009 graduate of the IVCC Massage Therapy program. Tara specializes in creating custom massages to address the individual needs of each client.

  In  2011, Tara attended a Myoskeletal Alignment seminar where she learned techniques for the neck, shoulders and hips. Continuing to broaden her knowledge of pain relieving modalities, Tara attended seminars in 2013-14 dedicated to learning Active Isolated Stretching. This system includes passive stretching, assisted stretching and also, learning stretches to do at home. This modality has been known to induce a lasting plastic stretch response, improved ROM and quicker recovery from injury. Classes in Myofascial Release have helped Tara improve her slow and steady techniques, providing quick results.

  In the spring and summer of 2015, Tara completed the requirements to become a Certified Kinesio Taping Practitioner (CKTP). This system focuses on using Kinesio tape to help relieve pain, improve joint movements and promote tissue health and regeneration.     

  The desire to see people improve their health and over-all well being has become Tara's motivation to continue her education in body sciences.
