Allow me to introduce myself
Thank you for coming by this page to get to know me a little better. My name is Kathryn, I have been doing massage therapy since 2007, when I graduated from ASMT (Arizona School Of Massage Therapy) in Tempe, AZ which is now known as the Cortiva Institute.
I started my career at a small spa called The Healing Arts Day Spa, which used to have a location in Tempe, AZ off of Ray and Rural, which is no longer in business. I was there for 2.5 years. I also had a couple of clients I had met while doing clinical shifts in school who's homes I visited.
After leaving there I took a couple years away from massage therapy to get a good idea of what I really wanted from my career. When I came back in 2012 I first started at marketing events and then spent 3.5 years at Backfit Health and Spine where I developed a good understanding of how massage can work with chiropractic and medical treatments to treat each patient as a whole. While there I became certified as a chiropractic assistant and trained for a year as an exercise therapist.
What is an exercise therapist? With this training I learned all the essentials needed to provide assistance to the excellent physical therapist they had at Backfit. Under Dr. Holly Surat DPT's guidance I was able to learn several types of stretches, strengthening exercises, and types of equipment used to treat many types of ailments and to stabilize the body after a sustained injury or chronic illness. Because of this training I have been able to help many more people than I would have been able to with massage alone.
After I left Backfit in June 2016 I went to Hand and Stone at their Chandler location off of Queen Creek Rd and Alma School Rd. I love the environment there and the people I work with and have learned a lot from being there about how to start and run a new business. However, I have always had a dream to have my own business, so here I am, with Zen Is In The Name.
