Kate has always been drawn to the power and potential of the human body. With a background in and continued passion for both dance and yoga, kinetic exploration informs and inspires her.​ Personal injury recovery​ led Kate to massage therapy​. The art of manual therapy proved to be a powerful guide in her own healing. This experience shapes the ​​​​​​client-centered partnerships​ ​she forms today through her ​​​trauma-informed​​, evidence-based approach​. Kate received her Associates of Occupational Studies with a focus on Massage Therapy from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine (2018) and holds a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies from Marymount Manhattan College. She completed internships at both Joffery Ballet School and NYU Langone's Initiative for Women with Disabilities. Kate is a 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher and a teacher's assistant at Pacific College.


Kate approaches the practice of manual therapy with compassion and curiosity. Her aim is to move and work with each individual client, to help them better understand their body, reduce the effects of stress and ​find relief from chronic pain. Drawing from Eastern and Western techniques, Kate builds each treatment so that clients can explore and discover bodily awareness​ and balance.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Derek on Sep 14
Incredibly focused and personalized massage. Kate had made a blend of essential oils based on my appointment notes. I felt in safe hands and found her to be incredibly knowledgable and competent. (She ended with suggestions for stretches that related to an ongoing strain I had experienced).
by Joe on Sep 10
Very professional with a calming demeanor. Prior to the massage Kate clearly explained how she would go about the treatment, the types of oils and heating pads she would use. Upon completion she shared her observations and highlighted certain area's that will require added focus. There will definitely be a next time

Kate was extremely professional and thorough working with me. She really took the time to listen to me describe my problem areas and made sure to address them during my time.

I cannot believe how amazing I feel after a massage from Kate at Sarah Maag Massage Therapy! When it was time for my appointment, Kate met me in the lobby and immediately I could sense her calm energy. Before the massage began, Kate asked me if there was anything I wanted to focus on, and I told her about my tight shoulders. It was clear Kate was a professional, and listened to what I had said about my problem areas. She also thoughtfully asked about using essential oils (which smelled amazing). The actual massage was incredible. I could literally feel the tension in my muscles melting away throughout the massage. Kate also spent a good amount of time working out a knot in my right shoulder, like we had discussed. The pressure level was perfect for me and she checked in when using slightly more pressure when working on my knot. Before I left, she offered a few stretches I could do at home for my shoulders. Afterwards I felt like I was walking on a cloud! I would highly recommend Sarah Maag Massage Therapy, make sure to sign up for a session with Kate!

My experience at Sarah Maag Massage was exceptional. Kate was my massage therapist. She took the time to review my areas of concern and addressed all of them during the 60 minute massage . Kate gave me a focused massage and I left feeling relaxed with all areas taken care of. The space is beautiful and clean and you feel relaxed as soon as you walk in. I highly recommended Kate and will definitely go back to see her again.
