Katerina is a 2016 graduate from Vancouver Career College’s Registered Massage Therapy program located in Kelowna B.C., where she has spent her entire life. Katerina believes in the body’s ability to heal itself and utilizes her expertise to assist in this process. Through listening to the body and thoughtful communication, she has a collaborative approach of reaching the specific goals of her clients. She combines that notion with her clinical education in order to provide a thorough, soothing, and effective massage. She provides a therapeutic massage with the intention of helping to realize postural correctness, as well as educating her clients to provide self care and reach a point of living without pain. This can be accomplished through deep tissue massage, trigger point work, sports massage, stretching, myofascial work, and joint manipulation. While firm pressure is her strength, relaxation and comfort are still the ideal goal. Katerina enjoys working with clients to resolve chronic pain, headaches, and whiplash, among other issues. By adjusting each massage to the individual client, she will provide a very specific massage for your needs. When not at work, Katerina enjoys spending time with friends and family as well as being outdoors camping, riding her dirt bike or hiking. She is passionate about personal fitness and enjoys working out and doing yoga.
