Hi, my name is Keri Patrick Sells. I have been a licensed massage therapist since 2008, but my professional career started in 2005 when I graduated from the University of Florida with a BS in nursing. I worked as a nurse for three years at a big hospital in Gainesville, FL, but my passion for a more natural and preventative approach to healthcare drew me in a different direction. In July 2008 I graduated from the Florida School of Massage. My first job was in a spa where I specialized in deep tissue, Swedish massage and hot stone therapy. A couple months later I also started working in a Wellness Center where I increased my knowledge and experience in working with chronic pain and injury related issues. Over the next three years, I had the honor and pleasure of working in two very different settings, both helping to make me the therapist that I am today. It is my goal to provide effective therapeutic massage treatments in the most luxurious way possible. Since I graduated massage school, I have taken continuing education courses in Myofascial Release and Structural Integration Techniques, Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy, Prenatal Massage and Cross Fiber Massage.
My husband Jeremy and I moved to Oregon in July 2011 and I opened Down to Earth Therapeutic Massage in September. We are blessed with two sweet girls, Lyla and Lexi. At this point in my life, being a mom is my #1 job and that is why I am eternally grateful to the wonderful friends and very talented massage therapists that have joined me at Down to Earth Massage.
