About Vital Balance Massage
Kaylie Sanders, CMT, PAS
Lead Therapist/Owner- Vital Balance
Kaylie is a compassionate healer whose main goal is to educate her clients about the importance of self-care practices and the body’s ability to both communicate and heal given the appropriate environment.
Kaylie’s varied background in the health and wellness field give her a broad understanding of the client experience.
She holds Bachelor’s degrees in both Exercise Biology and Psychology from UC Davis where she also played intercollegiate soccer.
Kaylie’s study of the strength and the power of the human body and mind continued when she became a posture alignment specialist through the Egoscue University in San Diego, CA. Kaylie was first introduced to Pete Egoscue's revolutionary method of health through motion by her father who avoided back surgery for a herniated disc. By performing a daily routine of gentle, corrective exercises custom designed for his compensated posture, he was able to correct the underlying cause of his herniation, his misalignment.
Kaylie also got herself out of chronic hip pain and continues to stay pain free with posture exercises. Studying the Egoscue Method allows Kaylie to look at the ‘big picture’ rather than just focus on the symptoms. Kaylie strives to empower her clients to take control of their health and heal themselves without relying on drugs, surgery and “experts”.
Kaylie also has clinical experience working closely with chiropractors as a senior rehab specialist for Sport and Spine Rehab in the Washington, DC area. She is trained in Kinesio-taping and experienced with instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (also known as Gua Sha). She earned her certification as a massage therapist from the Northern Virginia School of Therapeutic Massage in 2011. She now uses her extensive knowledge of the resiliency of the human body to help her clients heal through therapeutic massage and postural re-education. Her massage sessions aim to calm the nervous system and specifically address areas of dis-ease.
