Marta McKim is a practicing Certified Massage Therapist actively serving the Wichita community since 2004.
She was first introduced to Massage Therapy as young mother and experienced first-hand the benefits of massage for pregnancy and labor.
After years of freelance back rubbing, she enrolled in massage school, completed over 700 hours of training, graduated with honors and found her calling.
Initially offering Swedish and relaxation massage, Marta quickly realized she had a gift for helping clients with more intense muscular constriction. A close friend exclaimed “Marta! I need you and your atomic elbow!”
She took it to heart, the name stuck, and Atomic Elbow Massage was born.
Marta enjoys dancing, yoga, playing Ukulele, and spending time with her awesome family and friends. She also loves cats. A lot.
“What all can I say about Miss Marta? I went to her just because of her cool ad and was pleasantly surprised to find out she really does have an atomic elbow. I have gone to several massage therapists and have always been disappointed. They never had the muscle or persistence to tackle my stubborn knots.
Marta will talk with you or not, depending on how you feel and what you want that session. I consider an appointment with Marta an investment in my mental and physical health. Seriously.”
