Katharine Barnes (Kat) grew up in New Orleans, but has called Savannah home since 2006. She originally moved to Savannah to study architecture and historic preservation at SCAD. She worked in restaurants for years, and her massage therapist roommate helped repair quite a few job-related injuries.


She decided to attend massage school in 2015 at Virginia College in Savannah. While still in school, she completed continuing education in Thai bodywork with Michael Sitzer in Asheville, NC. Since finishing school, Kat has worked in a chiropractor’s office, holistic center, and spas. She’s a self-professed anatomy and kinesiology nerd, but she likes to combine her knowledge with an intuitive approach to every body as a unique structure of entwined physical, mental, emotional, and energetic systems.


Her passion is in getting people involved in their own healing through regular bodywork, and believes deeply in the body’s ability to heal itself when properly supported. She will be attending a Barnes Myofascial Release class in August 2018, and is very excited to begin offering that work to clients!
