Kimathi has been a Licensed Massage Therapist since 2000. In 2003, he became an English-speaking Qi Gong Master and is honored to share a healing process that has helped him tremendously. Card is also the author of the book, 1 for 1: The Key to Healthful Living and a Better You. His goal is to share what he has learned and to guide clients through the process of designing individualized wellness plans.
While growing up, Kimathi Card faced many challenges, including dyslexia, loss of smell (at the age of 15), and hearing problems. As a teenager, his response was turning to drugs and partying. Card found himself battling multiple addictions after engaging in decades of negative behaviors. After suffering a heart attack at age 35, he realized changes had to be made; his health had to be turned around. Card dedicated himself to improving his own health. He decided thereafter to help others by following his passion for bodywork, health, and wellness.
During his holistic training and education, Kimathi discovered both the true root of his potential and the healing power of the body. He studied Qi Gong, which allows individuals to move negative energy out of the body for the sake of healing. Through additional resources, including acupuncture and meditation, he was able to release misaligned patterns, feelings and actions. Card has since found peace and discovered healthier roads to happiness – approaches which he applies to his daily life.
