A strong interest in wellness and an equally strong desire to help prevent pain led Cathy to massage therapy. She believes that if we respect, honor and provide the balanced care that our body needs, we can minimize pain and even live pain free.

Cathy’s goal is to make a sincere difference in the way people feel in and relate to their bodies and her focus is results-oriented Therapeutic Bodywork. Her intention is that each session truly makes a difference in the way your body feels and functions. Using knowledge, skills and intuition to facilitate healing, she encourages and supports your body’s innate ability to heal itself.

The purpose of massage is to reconnect the person to their body
, relax and restore normal muscle tone and reintroduce an overall sense of wellbeing. This is accomplished by manipulation of the soft tissues of the body through a variety of massage techniques.

Your comfort is given high priority. The warmth of the room, table and oil will help you relax and release stress. All massages are professional, non-sexual and confidential. Your individual needs will be addressed and you will be empowered with tools to use in your daily life.
