      Kerri rocks her specialties like Pete Townsend wails on guitar. Which is to say, she moves uteri and talks a lot about menstruation, bringing balance to your center, and helping you find your inner radiance, all day long. Clearly, women’s health is core to her practice as a massage therapist, in which she specializes in Maya Abdominal Therapy, massage for menopause, and perinatal massage. She advocates that abdominal massage can help ease PMS, endometriosis, PCOS, IBS, and incontinence. A graduate of Body Therapy Institute in 2008, Kerri’s other modalities include Swedish and myofascial massage, integrated with acupressure and reflexology. Her work is often described as intuitive, meditative, and contemplative, and is good for everyone.  Kerri is involved in Women’s circles around Durham, Chapel Hill, and Hillsborough and is working towards integrating restorative movement therapy into her bodywork practice.When not giving or studying massage, Kerri can be found playing with her two children and husband, John Williford, most likely on the Eno River, possibly knitting, or devouring her latest cookbook like it’s a novel.

             John graduated Body Therapy Institute alongside his wife, Kerri, in 2008, and his work is best described as non-painful physical therapy combined with an amazing massage.

 

He is a functional anatomy geek and is pursuing more degrees because of this insatiable thirst for learning how the body works and heals.

 

John certified in medical massage in 2010 and Thai Yoga Bodywork in 2016, Functional Mobility Techniques (FMT)  instrument assisted soft-tissue manipulation (IASM) in 2017 and 2018, and is pursuing studies in osteopathic manipulative modalities.

 

He enjoys longer sessions that incorporate both massage and bodywork, providing slow, deep work to unwind the body.  

 

He is currently studying health promotions marketing, and developing continuing education seminars for the massage therapy field.
