Get to know Kat! Q&A…

Why did you become a Sports Massage Therapist?

I love to explore the human anatomy and movement and especially fascinated by dancers. I am not a natural sportsperson and always on the lookout to explore ways to make my body work better and keen to help others in the same goal. I also love receiving massages and thought it would be nice to be able to give them.

We had an animal farm when I was a child and I hope to have my own mini-version of it one day.”
