Lymphedema: the gateway to the immune system.

Welcome. My entire professional life has been one of service. My passion in life is to help people understand how their body functions and how they can heal themselves. Knowledge is power. We should all be empowered with the ability to heal ourselves. My therapy practice primarily focuses on the lymphatic system, detoxification and supporting the oncology patient during their cancer journey.

Welcome. My entire professional life has been one of service. My passion in life is to help people understand how their body functions and how they can heal themselves. Knowledge is power. We should all be empowered with the ability to heal ourselves. My therapy practice primarily focuses on the lymphatic system, detoxification and supporting the oncology patient during their cancer journey. Please check out the services page for more information on each treatment type offered. Again thank you for considering me to help you along your healing journey. I have been helping people with their health for over 25 years. 13 years as a back office medical assistant working closely with physicians and for the last 12 years as a massage therapist. The last 6 years have been in the oncology and lymphatic fields. I have treated thousands of patients working with an integrative rehabilitation department and have collaborated closely with rehab therapists, surgeons and oncology staff not only as a Licensed Massage Therapist but also as a Certified Lymphatic Therapist (The Norton School of Lymphatic Therapy 2013.) I have been responsible for treating and educating my patients and their caregivers about Lymphedema as well as educating onboarding nursing staff.. I have found my passion in helping people with their healing journey, be it body, mind or spirit as I feel that all three are intrinsically entwined. I have developed a wide array of massage techniques that I draw from to create a treatment session that is created individually for each client I treat. My mission is to help people help themselves. To assist people to take charge of their health and their lives. To educate and heal.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Renee on Oct 11
I went in not knowing what to expect. By the time Catherine completed my lymphatic massage my whole body was tingly and I felt a renewed energy. I liked Catherine's lymphatic massage so well I booked a series of 5 more sessions. I should have started the lymphatic massage prior to my surgery but I am positive the post op massages will help me to heal more quickly. Thank you Catherine!

Catherine is great. She takes a lot of time explaining what she's doing, and why, and goes out of her way to help you understand how to manage your condition.

Great lymphatic massage!

I arrived with my typical grumpy skepticism, but Catharine overcame that with a persuasive massage targeted to those areas most stubborn after my cancer's radical throat surgery. I left the massage feeling some relaxing of tendons etc. in my neck, and the improvement is still noticeable in the third day. I will certainly return for follow-up treatment.

The last massage I had fluid built up in my legs and Catherine was able to reduce the swelling. She also showed me how to have my sister do the massage which worked great. Very pleased with the treatment and the care that Catherine maintains. Highly recommend her services.

Catherine is very professional and very knowledgeable of her craft. Not only did she do a wonderful massage, she taught me somethings I could do myself.
