Katherine has been a Registered massage Therapist in practice since 2002. Having completed a 3 year diploma program at Sault College, Katherine has worked in many different clinic environments applying her knowledge of assessment, anatomy, physiology and pathology. Katherine has made her passion for continuing education a priory over the course of her career and continues to now. Katherine has explored many areas of study of manual therapy. One area of focus that has developed myofasical release, this applies to the very important connective tissue of our body.
Katherine is certified in Myofasical Release and completed the Masters Series in
Structural Integration in 2005. Structural Integration is a ten session series that focuses on postural alignment. By applying gentle pressure to the Fascia we can correct long standing postural issues by rehydration of the affected tissues.
Katherine’s passion is restoring balance and calm to the body. Her elite skill set and wide-ranging background in several body work modalities allow her to see not only the potential source(s) of pain, but also the bigger picture in terms of long-term recovery.
It is a wish fulfilled to be on staff at Kleinburg Integrative Health as Katherine fully believes a multi disciplinary approach is the best approach to successful client care.
Massage therapy treatment aims to develop, maintain, rehabilitate or augment physical functioning, relieve tension and pain as well as enhance the well being of the client. Your massage therapy treatment will have a therapeutic effect and improve your health by acting directly on the muscular, nervous and circulatory systems.
The focus of Katherine's massage treatment includes but is not limited to:
Your massage therapist will require you to fill out a health history form. Afterwards the therapist will begin by asking you general questions to establish what areas you would like worked on, if there are any conditions needing to be addressed and to determine if massage is appropriate for you. Your massage therapist may perform certain assessments and testing to evaluate your condition, and to see if you have any presenting complaints.
