She's particularly adept at working with clients who have suffered injuries or struggle with chronic pain and muscle tension, and to that end she offers deep-tissue, sports, and hot-stone massages to relieve discomfort. If clients are under a physician's care, Katie can work directly with their doctor to formulate a treatment plan that addresses the areas of concern.

In addition to helping her clients, Katie's committed to helping charities too?she donates 5% of the proceeds from every massage to the American Cancer Society.
