A MESSAGE FROM KATHLEEN:
“Having been in practice since 2000, it is interesting to look back and see how the profession of massage therapy, and myself as a therapist, have evolved. I come from a very clinical background in massage therapy and have worked with clients facing a variety of circumstances and issues – PTSD, prenatal, infertility, athletic injuries, repetitive use injuries, just to name a few.
As clients come for massage therapy to address unique conditions, each presenting dynamic challenges, I feel very fortunate that I been able to acquire a vast spectrum of skills and tools to successfully determine effective ways to improve their quality of life and well being. These tools have been invaluable to me over my years in the industry and in the variety of locations I have been able to offer my services.
We have all experienced first hand how society around us, and our private lives, have become increasingly busy, demanding, complex, and stressful. It is fabulous to be in a profession that acts in a therapeutic manner, from a physical standpoint, and also acknowledges one’s mental self. The strong connection between the two have led me to expand my knowledge in techniques that facilitate the entire process of bringing the mind and body back into a natural state of well-being and self-healing.
My experience gained through working with horses has taught me a lot about the importance of being completely present in each massage therapy session and really listening to the body for what it needs. They have shown me that while direct/firm pressure can be quite effective at releasing muscles, the use of a more subtle technique can also cause a large release in the muscles and fascia of the body. They are often much better than we are at living in the moment and not letting the mind interfere with the healing of the body.
It is astonishing how everything in the body is connected in such a complex way. On many occasions, in order to address and release areas that are causing issue, Massage Therapists often have to work in areas that are not bothering you at all. Subtle techniques such as Craniosacral Therapy and Sound Therapy can have profound and substantial impacts on these areas, and the entire body, even though they are so gentle and soothing.
During each session I provide to my clients, I try to incorporate the right combination of the techniques that I have learned, with the goal of reducing muscle tightness and pain, and promoting tranquillity and relaxation.
I look forward to helping you on your healing journey to being the healthy you that you are meant to be!”
