Hi, I’m Candace Pattillo, owner of Kindred Circle Massage Therapy, with my daughter Evelyn.
It is my passion to help women heal the mind and body from symptoms of stress and anxiety through therapeutic massage and mindset coaching. I’m on a mission to empower women to put themselves first, break through barriers we have set and heal emotionally and physically. I personally experienced anxiety and depression in my life, and it increased substantially after giving birth to my daughter in 2015.
A single momma from the beginning, the anxious feelings and being overwhelmed quickly consumed me - I felt broken, I had chronic pain in my back, and my emotional state would change in an instant. I decided I needed help- I needed to crawl out of the hole I dug myself into, lift the fog that was hanging over me and I wanted to actually be present in my life. And while there are many avenues I could have selected to heal, I decided I needed the most holistic approach. At first, I sought out massage therapy, the amazing benefits a deep massage can do for pain and anxiety- calming the nervous system, lessen tension and decrease anxious thoughts, and it was a good start. This helped release the tension I was holding, and it opened my eyes on how the body holds emotions as pain.
While I was on this healing journey, I didn’t step into my true self until I experienced a breakthrough coaching program. I was nervous at first, I thought maybe it was a bit "woowoo" for me, but during this time, I was able to release a lifetime of anger, sadness, hurt and guilt towards people that mean the most to me. I overcame the fear of being my true self. I started so see little changes that just automatically happened without consciously doing it, I started living my life at cause and not at the effect of my experiences, and realized that my goals for myself were starting to happen. I was blown away and overcome with love and joy in my own life, and I felt awakened! It was in that moment, I knew I needed to share this type of healing to other women. I wanted to be that support, a guide for women that experience the same things I had felt, and empowering them along their journey to release their emotional and physical pain.
In my personal time, I am a momma to my daughter Evelyn, a surfer with a passion for the ocean, I have a secret love for interior design and enjoy traveling and having new adventures with my family!
My goal is to help you understand that the mind body connection is a key essential part in healing. Lets come together as women, as a tribe, as a powerful force - to break through the pain and barriers we set, to heal emotionally and physically. I’m looking forward to supporting your healing journey!
