Kate has been a Registered Massage Therapist for thirty years. Kate grew up in a small town in New Brunswick, where she explored the outdoors and was active in athletics and team sports. That early experience shaped her curiosity and her passion for hands-on learning and life-long growth. After completing her BSc. in Biology at St. Frances Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Kate moved to Toronto to train at the Sutherland-Chan School of Massage Therapy. Kate has since practiced therapeutic massage in high-paced Toronto clinics (general and sports-related), in a rural home-based practice in Prince Edward County, and in two therapist-led clinics in Kingston. She has also been a teacher and mentor in Sir Sandford Fleming College’s Massage Therapy Program, Peterborough. In 2000 Kate and her partner moved to Kingston, where she first joined the Waterfront Massage Therapy Clinic, and then in 2002 moved to her present clinic, now renamed Wellington Street Massage. Kate has helped folks of all ages sustain their health and well-being. Based on the principles and practices of traditional Swedish Massage, Kate describes her approach as gentle, measured, and firm.
