Relaxation leads to Acceptance

Back in 2014, I got back into my yoga practice because I was feeling overwhelmed and stressed. My life had taken many turns that were beyond my control and sent me down a path filled with anxiety and depression. I tried speaking with therapists and taking medication, but nothing helped all that much.

Back in 2014, I got back into my yoga practice because I was feeling overwhelmed and stressed. My life had taken many turns that were beyond my control and sent me down a path filled with anxiety and depression. I tried speaking with therapists and taking medication, but nothing helped all that much.

One morning I remembered how I felt by the end of a yoga practice: relaxed, peaceful, calm, so I decided to walk into a yoga studio. Stepping back on my mat then changed my life forever. Feeling less stressed for the first time in years made me realize it wasn’t my circumstances that made me sad but my reactions to them. From there I went on to get several certifications in Yoga, so I continue on the path of education on how to relax the mind and help others.

Becoming a yoga teacher guided me to evolve towards more natural methods to help others. Bodywork/massage was a logical evolution. I found touch and the guidance it offered to others to delve deeper into a path of relaxation and facilitation of healing, so I became certified in Thai Yoga Massage.

Thai Yoga Massage then led me to learn more about the wondrous, vast world of Massage Therapy.  Swedish, deep tissue and many other modalities offer my clients more opportunities for self-discovery and paths to healing.

I've dedicated my life to facilitating the natural healing powers people possess to find their path to relaxation and peace. Whether it is a massage, yin yoga or Thai massage, students and clients begin to search within for their source of reducing stress. The power lies within. It’s about self-care, self-discovery and self-compassion and the willingness to accept who we are.

Her knowledge and her skills are wonderful.

Katy is such a good listener. She clearly explains what she is doing and why she is doing it. She also uses a holistic approach to deal with whatever issue I have identified, and each session adds a new layer of therapy to what we have worked on in the past. Based on her yoga training, Katy also offers advice on poses/stretches that I can work on at home between massage sessions.

Katy is absolutely fabulous! I am training for my 4th marathon and Katy knows exactly what to do to help my sore muscles! I will come back again and again!

Such helpful suggestions for the aches and pains. Glad there is work I can do on my own with the therapy ball. Looking forward to my next visit. I learn so much each time.

I was a little bit cold. Maybe a heated table would help? Or no fan? Otherwise... dreamy!

Katy really pays attention to what's wrong with you and then tailors her therapy accordingly. It was a great experience!

Katy is an I credible massage therapist. My 17 year old Daughter was having back and neck issues and Katy was so welcoming and helped her feel so much better!

Katy is thoughtful, considerate and very knowledgeable. Most likely the best massage I've experienced in a very long time.
