Hi, I’m Kate (Kathryn). I graduated from the 3000-hour Registered Massage Therapy program at WCCMT. After graduation, and a bit of travel, I happily moved back to Nanaimo. I have been working clinically as an RMT here ever since! Generally, I am a deep tissue therapist but I often incorporate fascial work and relaxation techniques to optimize treatment results. Fascial work helps loosen the structures surrounding the muscles to further relax the tissue. Relaxation techniques help and calm the nervous system so our bodies can let go of tension. This style of treatment accommodates both the mind & body. I also have a background in yogic practice and personal training, so I incorporate both disciplines into homecare for continued rehabilitation in every day life.

Outside of work, I love exploring our gorgeous backyard, hiking, running, mountain biking, and kayaking/paddle boarding. You can find me in most Island and some mainland running races (I have an affinity for shiny metals! And I enjoy the challenge). Every other minute is spent with my hubby and our little tot. He is our entire universe!!

Life is beautiful!

With a focus on total body health, my aim is to detect where the musculoskeletal dysfunctions are located to release impediments and reduce discomfort in your area(s) of concern. Based on your unique health history and presentation, I offer a treatment plan that benefits you by improving movement, circulation, and relaxation, therefore restoring your wellness. My treatments are a custom blend of therapies such as general swedish and ischemic techniques, myofascial releases and joint mobilizations, as well as neuromuscular stimulation and release techniques. I provide treatment to the general public with a special interest in women's health and sports injury rehabilitation. Get in touch with me if you have a question or would like to book an appointment.
