"Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live." -Jim Rohn

Therapeutic massage & bodywork has been a passion of mine since I was young. The human body and it's resiliency never ceases to amaze me.

Therapeutic massage & bodywork has been a passion of mine since I was young. The human body and it's resiliency never ceases to amaze me. I was in a car accident in 1994, suffering severe whiplash and other minor injuries. I was then introduced to, and experienced first-hand, the many healing benefits of massage therapy. I was intrigued with how my body responded so well to professional, therapeutic touch. That prompted me to do more research on massage therapy and it's many forms. This led me to my purpose, and eventually career, as a licensed massage therapist. 


After I graduated from Marshall University in 2003 with my Bachelor's Degree in Sociology, I moved to Orlando, FL to pursue my dream of becoming a massage therapist. I attended Florida College of Natural Health and acquired an Associate's Degree in Advanced Therapeutic Massage, specializing in Neuromuscular Therapy and Sports Massage. 

I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist since 2004, gaining experience in the medical, spa, and independent environments over the years. I'm happy to share that the same passion for helping others through this type of work still grows stronger everyday. 

I currently reside in Orlando, FL with my husband and our golden retriever, Candy. Along with spending quality time with family and friends, I enjoy outdoor sports like mountain biking, kayaking, snowboarding, rock climbing, volleyball, and much more. As a volunteer with Therapy Dogs International, I look forward to taking Candy for visits to bring lots of smiles and healing to people young and old!

It's a very busy world out there. My hope is that you make the time to take care of your mind, body, and soul. Therapeutic massage & bodywork can help with that!

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

Katie is the BEST! I have complicated back issues, and with her help, have made great progress and always feel better after a session. Kind, professional and her work is second to none! Very grateful for you, Katie Wurst. :)

Remarkable. After one session remarkable relief. I’ve been dealing with chronic pain from two accidents from 2014 & 2016 affecting my upper back and neck. Pain from these accidents were chronic and cause debilitating migraines. I’ve gone to at least 10 LMTs, PTs, and physicians over the past few years and none have given me results. Many even triggering more pain and migraines after sessions. This professional is skillful at their craft. Though it was only one session. I felt relief like I’ve nevwr felt before and absolutely no pain in all my problem areas. As if my chronic pain had just vanished. Now I know I’m still on my journey for healing but there will be no other Hands of Healing working with my back and neck other than Katie. I’m a Firefighter and she has greatly helped me in my efforts in supporting and protecting my community by helping heal me. Check her out.

I’ve used Katie’s services for separate neck, shoulder, and back issues caused by me playing sports as if my body is 25 years younger. I find Katie to be trustworthy, caring, perceptive to how my body is reacting to treatment, and very knowledgeable of the human body and massage therapy effects, with a willingness to explain as much as I can consume (which I like a lot).

Not only was Katie was extremely knowledgeable and took the time to understand my complaints she did a great job explaining the origin of my injury and provide some follow up stretches and suggestions to help with improving my strain. She was very professional, accommodating and gave a great massage attending to all areas of for massage benefit, not just the area of injury and complaint. I highly recommend Katie !!
