Katherine gives the most wonderful massage I have ever had. A flow of energy can literally be felt. The muscles and nerves all relax. Tension flows away. The worries flow away. Stress flows away. You find yourself in a peaceful state in your mind. You find yourself in a blissful place in your heart. Your body is so relaxed. You feel as light as a feather. The feeling stays with you. If I could I would have one everyday. It is one of the most simple ways to feel at peace and beautiful.
— Michael, Berlin, MD
Katherine is the life force itself. She moves my body as it most wants to be moved – by me – in dance, in love, in life, an exuberant liberation into unity of the physical and emotional and spiritual. Her long, flowing and spiraling strokes intuitively trace the sacred geometry of my design, gorgeously stretch and animate not just individual muscles, but muscle groups in their natural function and connectedness. No release is coerced by force but lightly, firmly persuaded by an angel’s touch to surrender. The effect is integrative and it imprints a profound body memory that echoes forth into the whole of my being and doing. Sensuously embraced by the Divine Feminine, I am invited to fully inhabit my body and experience the potential of it’s vitality.”
— Chris, Santa Fe, NM
I started going to Kat for deep-tissue massage in 2009. I went to her because I was experiencing severe soreness in my legs and lower back from running and cycling quite often. I had been to various massage therapists over the years and by far Kat was and is the best I ever been to! She was so in-tune to my body and what I needed, did not spend the session talking to me, and really connected. I had the most relaxed feeling leaving that first massage and all of my soreness was alleviated! She also taught me some various stretches and incorporated that into the massage as well. I continued to go back to Kat quite often and again she is by far THE best massage therapist!
I also referred a friend of mine to her and my friend made the same statements, that she had been to several others and they did not come close to Kat.
I was so sorry to see her leave Topsail Island, NC, but know the people of Raleigh will welcome her with open arms and be amazed by her talent, spirit and powerful energy.”
— Sue Roberts, Topsail Island, NC

About Me

hawaiilomipic.jpg

 

I'm Kat and I look forward to meeting you!

 

For as long as I can remember, I've wanted to help others on all levels: physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally. I graduated with a BA in Psychology in 2006 and from massage school in 2008. I loves massage and am constantly learning new modalities, integrating each with my massage. 

I combine elements of Swedish, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point Therapy, Sports Massage, Myofascial Release, Therapeutic/Neuromuscular, Thai Yoga, Hot Stones, Ashiatsu, Craniosacral, Medi-cupping, and elements of many other modalities, to cater to the client's specific needs. 

I have also found a passion in Sacred Hawaiian Lomi, of which I am an advanced practitioner. Sacred Lomi is an ancient practice that combines long, flowing strokes that spiral around the body unweaving old patterns that no longer serve, replacing them with new, healthy patterns. It is a combination of physical touch and energetic healing that can help find the direction of one's life. Or can simply be really relaxing with an island like flow. Sacredlomi.com will explain the lineage in more detail.
