RMT, BSc, Therapeutic, deep tissue, cupping, myofascial, relaxation
Katherine received her massage therapy education at Mount Royal University. She also has a bachelor of science in natural resources management and conservation science from the University of Northern BC. She was a trail builder for Alberta Parks for 5 years, so she knows the kind of treatment that hard-working bodies need! Her approach to massage therapy is that “it’s all about fascia”, so she targets the fascial network with myofascial technique and cupping. She recognizes that everyone responds best to their own unique pressure, pace and technique. Katherine thinks that targeting the nervous system is just as important as targeting muscles, and that relaxation is a critical part of recovery.

What do you do when you aren’t massaging?
I really love nature, like looking for birds with my dog and knowing the names of plants. I also really love eating so I tolerate exercise on bikes and skis. Cooking is my jam, as are fermenting odd things and playing synthesizer in my synthwave band.
What made you decide to become a massage therapist?
My conservation science background led me to seasonal parks work, and in the winters I worked in the ski industry. One day on ski patrol I was riding the chairlift alone, and wondered if there was a job out there where you could still help people, but that wasn’t as dangerous or crisis-oriented as patrolling. And I thought, “I wonder if I could be a massage therapist?”. I’m so glad I did! I love helping people find relief from their aches, pains and stress.
