In 2009, Katie graduated from the College of Massage and Hydrotherapy in Toronto and started her career in Waterloo at a Massage Therapy clinic before moving on to a Medical Spa. She returned to Toronto in 2011, continuing her career in the clinical environments of Physiotherapy and Sports Injury facilities, gaining years of experience with a wide variety of conditions and injuries. She has taken post graduate continued education courses in the Active Release Technique (ART), and AromaTouch Technique.
Katie’s lifestyle and passion for fitness, health, and wellness has lead her in the direction of growing her practice within the holistic-based environment of a Wellness clinic. With much success and joy as a RMT over the years, she has always felt like there was something missing within her treatment, beyond the practice of manual therapy. She longed for something to assist her in alleviating the emotional and physical symptoms her clients presented with which seemed to stem from something deeper than soft tissue. In 2015 she was introduced to the amazing healing powers of nature’s medicine— pure plant based essential oils. Her strong passion towards them inspired her to develop a deeper knowledge base she could use to educate and share with the universe.
Katie integrates essential oils into her practice at Whole Life Balance elevating the effectiveness of her already existing healing hands. You can also join her as she frequently teaches essential oil classes, educating on the basics as well as the endless ways to use them.
Katie is so excited to be a part of the Whole Life Balance team and share her passion and vibrant energy with the neighbourhood in King West!
