Katie began her post secondary education with a Bachelor of Science degree with a focus in Human Kinetics from the University of Guelph. She then packed her bags and headed west to attend the Okanagan Valley College of Massage Therapy. She enjoyed the Vernon area so much, that she decided to stay.
In practice, Katie believes that the body has an innate ability to self-heal, and allows this philosophy to guide her work. She provides each of her patients with a thorough assessment, while listening and taking note of the body’s own priorities for change. She employs a variety of pain-free yet effective manual therapy techniques including craniosacral therapy, muscle energy technique and visceral manipulation.
