addressing soft tissue dysfunction to decrease pain and improve performance
Katie graduated from the Cortiva Institute (MA) in 2010, after being introduced to massage as a piece of the pain management puzzle for her own injuries. She loves seeing her patients return demonstrating improvement with a variety of acute and chronic issues and relaying stories of their improved performance.
Over the course of her career, she has worked in multidisciplinary settings alongside physical therapists, chiropractors, acupuncturists, and personal trainers. Creating a whole-body, multidisciplinary approach to wellness is a huge part of how she approaches massage.
When she’s not massaging, you can find Katie working on one of her many web and consulting projects, scratching the wanderlust itch with her husband Jeff, or playing ball with their black lab, Cole.
In addition to geeking out about muscles and the body, Katie likes: the ocean, animals, fine paper products, and chasing things down the sink with the little sprayer thingy. Katie dislikes: closed minded people, bad drivers, and poorly executed ethnic food. Additionally, Katie finds it odd to talk about herself in the third person, but is doing so anyway so that you can learn a bit more about her. She earned her BA and MA in French Language and Literature, even though her Dad told her she’d never get a good job with a French degree.
