Catherine has the skill and patience to get to the point of finding the underlining problems that you may have. When I started with her I was just a tight mess of muscles. Now the tightness is better and she starting to find the real issues that caused the tightness in the first place. In a short amount of time compared to how long this has been going on (too many years) I am so thankful I found this gem of a person/massage therapist..

Catherine was able to quickly locate and begin to deal with the source of my arm pain. I could already sense that the healing had started by the end of the session. Looking forward to my next session.
