Hi, my name is Carol Koon, LMT, BA.: I have over 25 years experience in Massage and Medical Massage. My goal is to provide the best massage I can in the Outer Banks for a reasonable price. I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist since 1997 as a limited Branch of Medicine in Ohio (#33.007529). The Ohio State Medical Board requirements (Anatomy and Physiology) were rigorous and prepared me to work with clients disorders such as: Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, Rheumatism, STRESS, anxiety, MS, Cerebral Palsy, Lupus, Parkinson's, ALS and most Soft Tissue Pain. I have done massage in University Hospital of Cleveland on the Oncology Floors and Antepartem Floor. Massage does NOT take the place of Medical Treatment and is not intended to. However; massage can help with circulation, chronic pain disorders, everyday aches and pains that come with aging and/or pregnancy, lower blood pressure, boost the immune system and help with healing(Cleveland Clinic, 1990). You don't need a medical reason to get a massage but anyone over the age of 30 needs it! I have been serving the Outer Banks since 2005.

I'm not a spa, storefront or any kind of Massage Establishment, so I give the address when your appointment is finalized for privacy reasons. I'm sound-side near MP 6 for reference.
Pandemic Policy: I will always follow CDC rules. In fact all therapists are taught to do that! (I taught massage for over 10 years for one of the best schools in Ohio and they used both national texts that all Therapists are taught from regardless of state). Thankfully, I keep my license there also, so I have been following Ohio Medical Board Guidelines for Massage Therapists. I'm happy so many are vaccinated. I am, but that doesn't keep us from catching it! Covid is still here and I haven't caught it yet nor want to - So I will mask - for you. You don't have to unless you think you have been exposed or just want to. I don't mind making a tent over your head so the face rest is more comfortable! The UVC light/air filter isn't going anywhere, or the lysol that I spray the air down for you as well as disinfect anything you may come in contact with. The hand sanitizer just makes good sense.
I apologize in advance that I can no longer sell gift certificates or be a gift or surprise for anyone. That means making an appointment for them too! I know, other places do that all the time but after 25 years, I still love what I do and I'm sensitive (maybe that's why I'm an intuitive therapist) and whether the person doesn't know my name or seems afraid, or I just wasn't what they expected (a room on the side of my house). Massage is too personal and we should decide on the right therapist for ourselves. I am sensitive and I may not be what they want. I'm just a person who loves helping people.and they may just want someone to shut up and rub them?We therapists are different, massage is an art and science. I understand if you're on vacation and just looking for something to do as I've worked in big and small spas and people are looking for different things in massage. Chain store massage and spas have created an image of anonymous service providers - like a manicure but it's much more personal. Most of you need it though and don't have time when at home - I understand - so that's why I do what I do. Those who find me are usually looking for a different experience and did I mention I love my work? So, I don't do chain store massage - it's my life's work (I have a sense of humor so I'm making you read all this to get to my price and so you'll feel like you know me!) I love text because it's easier between clients. I do return calls at the end of the day at the latest!
I became a private self-employed therapist in 2016. I'm just a solo therapist who loves what I do!
Swedish Massage is a firm head to toe massage. It's classic kneading, friction and moving circulation. The art is knowing what client needs. My style is a combination of .....
Deep Tissue or Therapeutic Massage can include Myofascial Release and Neuromuscular/Trigger Point Therapy. Most all clients are a combination of Swedish and therapeutic. Pressure is about moving the tissue, it varies between clients. You don't need to ask!

I have reviews on Google My Business, Trip Advisor, Facebook, SquareUp and Yelp (Yelp does take reviews down from people who don't use the app much). I'm not a fan of social media, it all scares me. I'm just a person, not a store or company.
I had a 90 minute massage with Carol and it was awesome!
