Licensed massage therapist, Kala Smith, LMT #17594 / CA# 5605
At the age of 14, Kala realized that her ambition was to become a Licensed Massage Therapist. After suffering a painful gymnastics accident, she received Therapeutic Massage as part of her recovery plan. The relief she experienced had a lasting effect on her views of what could be accomplished through bodywork!
In 2004, Kala graduated from A Gift of Health School of Massage in Idaho. In her year of practice in Idaho Falls, she enjoyed great success in helping patients find relief from whiplash, carpal tunnel syndrome, and headaches. Moving to Wilsonville, Oregon in 2011 required new licensing, which Kala completed at Pioneer Pacific College in 2012. Since joining our healthcare team in 2012, she has increased her training to include therapies for-
- TMJ/TMD Disorders
- Sports Massage
- Exercise Rehabilitation
- Trigger Point Therapy
- Prenatal Massage
In addition to her LMT work, she is also a Chiropractic Assistant, performing Exercise Rehabilitation Training with Dr. Colby’s patients. This has given her an advanced understanding of the postural and mechanical components of injury and chronic pain.
Kala considers her work successful when she can find the cause of a client’s pain and ease it, not just for the short-term, but rather to realize long-lasting effects. It is this frame of mind, and her compassion for her clients, that makes her one of Wilsonville’s best and busiest massage therapists. We are very fortunate to have Kala as a part of our healthcare team! She is a true professional.
