She has extensive experience working in a multitude of venues including spas, chiropractic offices, and stand alone chair massage.
Her varied experience has taught her that stress is the major cause of a lot of health issues as well as tension. She integrates a multitude of modalities in her sessions in order to relax clients as well as relieve this tension that can lead to other illnesses. These modalities include deep tissue, Swedish (relaxation), hot stone, and herbal poultice. Cathy is also knowledgeable in prenatal and chair massage.
