Key West, Fla.
– When you’re feeling down, the Key West massage is not just for relaxing.
It’s a great way to recharge your batteries, keep your mind fresh and keep your body moving.
“We’re not just a resort, we’re a community,” said Kathy Kieffer, founder of Key West Massages.
“So, it’s really good to take a break from the pressures of life,” said Kieffers partner, Holly Henson.
Kieffer’s Key West salon is not only a place for relaxation, but also a place to get your massage done with some of the most experienced masseuses in the world.
“It’s like a spa,” Kiefer said.
“The whole thing is geared toward relaxing your body.
It has everything you need to be comfortable.
The whole time you’re there, your mind is focused on your massage.”
The salon is the result of a partnership between Kiefeer and Henson, who started Key West in 2005 and have been a part of the Key Western community ever since.
“I wanted to open the Key to the world,” Kieser said.
“The beauty is in the service.”
The Key West masseuses have been with Key West for more than 50 years, and Hensons family has been a fixture in the resort since 1952.
“My father used to go to Key West every weekend to have fun,” Henson said.
Henson said her father used the Key for relaxation.
“When he would go out, he would come back and just relax,” she said.
As a child, Henson and Kieffe were often at the Key in Key West.
They also spent time at the resort during the summers.
“There was a lot of beachfront, it was great for kids to come and spend time,” Henson said.
During Key West’s heyday, Key West was one of the few places in the state that offered a beachfront resort, but that all changed when the resort closed in 2007.
“A lot of things happened,” Hentis said.
The resort was closed in 2008, but it reopened in 2015.
The KeyWest Massages, which opened in 2008 and now has more than 1,100 clients, has been called the best Key West has to offer.
“Our goal is to do as much of the work as possible in our environment,” Hensen said.
