Nani Brown took ownership of Kinetic Sports Massage and Therapy in September 2023. Born in Hawaii, raised in Florida, she has lived in Sarasota since 2001 and graduated from Sarasota School of Massage Therapy in 2015. She has had many years of continuing education introducing her to a wide range of massage modalities. She blends a little of them all but mostly uses deep tissue, cupping, and neuromuscular techniques. Nani has been a receiver of massage for many years, which is partially what led her to pursue this healing profession, along with wanting to have a positive effect on people.

She has an intuitive approach to the treatment she provides. As an avid runner who has done dozens of races including a handful of marathons, she is a great listener and can identify well with an athlete’s needs and preferences.

She has a great appreciation for quality time with her boyfriend, adorable dogs, friends, and family!

Colton is a graduate of Sarasota School of Massage Therapy and has a certification in corrective exercise, (a system of assessing the body and creating a customized program for the individual that would strengthen weak areas and stretch tight areas to balance the tension of the body, relieving pain and dramatically increasing function), through the National Academy of Sports Medicine. His fascination with the body began at only 13 when he decided he wanted to learn everything he could to be a better wrestler and athlete. At 19 he pursued his passion for fitness and became a personal trainer. After 8 years he decided he wanted to take it to the next level and obtain a Massage Therapy license so he could incorporate hands-on work with his clients. The combination of the two disciplines allows him to systematically assess the body, create the most personalized treatment plan, and correct the imbalances that are causing pain. He utilizes several techniques including Movement and Postural Assessments, Myofascial Release, Structural Integration, Neuromuscular Therapy, and Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization. He also enjoys using Swedish and relaxing techniques with clients who don’t need this thorough medical massage or when someone has had a rough week and wants to destress. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with family,
