Massage Therapy is my passion. I have spent many years continuing my education and developing my skills in rehabilitation and relaxation.  I have been Nationally Certified Since 2010 and have held a state licence since required in 2014. My education exceeds the requirements of the state of Michigan to hold a Massage Therapy License. My love for Anatomy and Physiology has lead me to the process of becoming a personal trainer and expanding my knowledge of sports and massage. I plan to continue my education from there, as I work toward an Exercise Science Degree and  become a Physical Therapist.

Beyond my love for anatomy, science, and wellness, I love my clients. I enjoy working with people of all ages, genders, physical abilities/conditions and  much more. I love how individual my clients are and I know they need a treatment to fit their specific needs. I hope to provide a welcoming and judgement free environment to anyone who walks into my life. I am dedicated to uphold the highest of ethics and standards possible. My clients deserve the best!

Katie was very knowledgeable in her field and repeatedly checked in to see about pressure. I have been to many massage therapist that claim to do deep tissue but Katie really knows whats she is doing. The pressure is consistent throughout and I left feeling thoroughly worked out in all my problem areas.

Katie is amazing! I've never been disappointed with a massage I've received from her! This time I had a spa service as well and I was so relaxed afterward and felt amazing!

Katie did it again! Following a lower back strain (pain), she diligently and skillfully pinpointed problem areas and worked to bring relief to my back. Thanks!
