Catherine has a longstanding interest in holistic health. An athlete and actor in her youth, she has studied the potential and capacity of the body in movement for decades.
A debilitating back injury and subsequent surgery shifted her focus from creative movement toward rehabilitative movement.
She became a Pilates instructor and devotee of Iyengar yoga. She has taught Pilates group and private sessions on both mat and equipment for over ten years.
With an intent always towards balance, alignment, and integration she has attended numerous workshops and continuing education classes; on scoliosis, shoulder mechanics, intrinsic foot muscles, Feldenkrais, Breathing for full body health, therapeutic ball and myofascial stretch techniques, Thai massage ,Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy, and most recently Quantum Shamanic Reiki.
Catherine believes in the effectiveness of massage as a tool for connection with oneself, the most basic and necessary root of well-being. Catherine is among only a handful of registered massage therapists in Canada practising Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy.
