Angela Jean Kaylor
Preferred Pronouns: She/her
Healing touch is a gift that I am honored to provide those who are seeking comfort in their bodies, as this is the vessel in which we experience the world. My approach to massage therapy is continuously informed by ongoing movement studies and somatic embodiment practices, which guide my understanding of the functions, needs, and unique expressions of the human body. Through my own evolving journey, I have learned that we all have the ability to address our own healing and that there is no one-size-fits-all. I enjoy meeting and working with a variety of clients and addressing their unique needs, and particularly enjoy working with pregnant people as their bodies undergo the enormous changes and shifts in preparing to bring new life into the world.
My passion for movement and the healing arts was ignited when I took my first yoga class over 15 years ago. I received a 200-hour Massage Therapy Certification at the Amma Yanni Yoga Center & School in Philadelphia 14 years ago, at the studio where I took my first yoga class. I continued to immerse myself in yoga, building a strong Hatha yoga practice that I carried with me when I moved to Austin, TX in 2009. Shortly after moving to Austin, I immersed myself in dance technique and aerial training, which culminated in opportunities to perform professionally with various local companies and artists. In 2016 I revisited bodywork and studied at the Lauterstein Conway Massage School & Clinic to begin my career as an LMT in Austin. In 2018, I completed a 200 hour Hatha yoga teacher training with Siddhi School of Yoga, and I’m currently enrolled at Austin Community College in the Somatic Movement Education Program.

What to expect from a session with Angela
My intention is to assist each individual in achieving their own healing goals and well-being, and to help relieve discomfort and imbalances in the body, mind, and spirit. I deliver bodywork that is thorough, intuitive, nurturing, and deeply present. I use a blend of techniques depending on the needs of the individual seeking my care, which can include deep tissue, Swedish, mobility and stretching, myofascial release and a dry technique created by David Lauterstein called Deep Massage. My work has been described as gentle yet potent. I strive to bring my clients into better alignment, so they can leave our session with smoother mobility and physical ease, as well as feeling cared for and deeply grounded.
