Katie’s passion for massage and bodywork began 16 years ago while teaching in a rural town in Thailand where she experienced the healing power of touch. Upon returning to the US, she received extensive training and became certified in Orthopedic Massage Therapy (Career Networks Institute of CA) and in Manual Lymphatic Drainage (Upledger Institute). In Katie’s pursuit to help empower people to heal themselves and create a deeper mind-body connection, she discovered Yamuna Body Rolling (YBR) and became a Certified YBR Instructor. She also holds a certification in Yamuna Foot Fitness. Katie is committed to providing the highest standard of therapeutic movement, healing, wellness, education and injury prevention. Katie has lived in Durango for 12 years. When she isn’t massaging, body rolling or doing Foot Fitness you can find her on hiking trails, ski slopes, cooking up a storm in the kitchen and spending time with her husband and her dog Tilly.
