Hi, I’d like to introduce myself. My name is Millie Kick, and I have been working at Vernon Clinic of Chiropractic for the last 6 years. I have been a Massage Therapist for over 20 years and I am Wisconsin Licensed (755-146).
I received my certificate of massage from Capri School of Massage Therapy in Madison, WI in 1996. Upon graduation from massage school I began working with two Naturopathic Doctors where I began my journey of health and wellness. Over the years I have not only worked with Naturopathic Doctors but also Chiropractors and Acupuncturists who have given me a unique prospective of the human body and its power to be healed. I have developed my own individual style of Therapeutic Swedish Massage which includes many of the different modalities that I have become proficient in using over the years.

Myofascial Release is a form of soft tissue therapy intended to eliminate pain, increase range of motion, and rebalance the entire body. It does this by using massage techniques to stretch the fascia and release the bonds that exist between the fascia, muscles and bones. Fascia is the connective tissue that connects and covers all muscles, organs, and skeletal structures of the body. Direct myofascial release is sometimes known as deep tissue work. Indirect release applies light pressure and gently stretches the fascia; this allows for increased blood circulation and relief from pain.
Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage aims to gently and rhythmically move the lymph through the body, especially swollen areas of the body, relieving pressure and enhancing the functioning of the immune system. As both a preventative and remedial technique, LD can be used for a wide range of purposes including faster recovery from injury, reduction of swelling and discomfort from pregnancy, and strengthened resistance to illness.
