My Story…
After many years working in an office, sitting behind a computer all day, everyday, I knew I had to make a change in my life. I needed something new. But I didn't know what. Then after losing both of my parents (only 2.5 weeks apart) I realized that life is too short to wait for "some day I'll____ " (fill in the blank with: think about a new career, eat better, lose weight, exercise more...) I knew in order to get healthier I had to make conscious changes.  I had to stop procrastinating and I had to "just do it"! Not just for my body, but for my spirit as well. I needed healing in my life and I wanted to share my healing journey with others. So I took a huge leap of faith and reduced my work schedule to just 1 day a week and I went back to school. First I got certified as a Reiki practitioner. This energy work was wonderful. It helped soothe my broken heart and it gave me a new found focus. But it wasn't enough. I needed something more hands on and physical. After a conversation with my chiropractor, I decided to study massage therapy. And I'm so glad I did. At times I feel as if a divine force is guiding me on this healing path. During my sessions, I feel that I am healing myself as well as my clients. It is truly a gift. And I am so happy that I get to share that gift with my clients.

Kathy was wonderful. The room was so pleasant and relaxing. She communicated to ask if the pressure was good. I felt amazing afterwards. I will definitely be back.

I have told friends how amazing Kathy is! She was able to do much needed deep tissue work while maintains a relaxed and zen like feeling & atmosphere. I feel like she is very intuitive and understands the mechanics of my problem areas. I really got relief from my first session! I will be back!!
