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.

Katy is caring and knowledgeable. She has a healer's touch and helped my body access its own healing mechanism.
by Kristin on Feb 17
Katy is a healer! I instantly felt comfortable with her and my hour long session flew by. She was extremely professional and thorough, explaining what she was doing, as well as what the various sensations might indicate about my physical or emotional state. I am eager to book another session with her.

Katy is a gifted empathic and intuitive practitioner which is so important for healing touch; she also is very aware of the structure and anatomy of the body and works to release and relax blocked areas. These elements combined equal the best massage!

Katy’s massage therapy sessions have been a game changer for me! I am a boxing coach and personal trainer. Without Katy I’m not sure I would be able to continue working as hard as I do! The knowledge she is able to pass on in order to help maintenance my body between the time I see her has also been so beneficial. I am so thankful to have connected with Katy!

Katy is a true professional and knows a person's anatomy well. It is a pleasure to have her on my team for good health.

Wonderful experience! Aside from being quite skilled at the body work, Katy was able to pinpoint a trouble area I didn't even know was causing other issues I was having. I'm so excited to be working with her.
