Cat is, hands down, my choice bodyworker in Asheville. Her strategy for chronic pain relief is grounded, smart, and very effective.
Cat is an amazing healer. Pigeonholing her skills into categories such as massage therapist or yoga instructor do not do her work justice … healer is the best word to describe her work. Problems that allopathic medicine finds very difficult to treat such as plantar fasciitis, chronic pain, and migraine headaches are issues that Cat is able to treat easily. Many times, I have gone to Cat for a problem that I did not believe was treatable with massage and have been surprised to find myself pain-free weeks later.
I started getting trigger point work from Cat for my restless legs syndrome. I’ve had this problem ever since I was a kid and nothing, except medication, has been able to provide long term relief. After a couple of trigger point massages and some ideas for me to implement on my own at home, my restless legs are gone….cured!
Cat’s unique experience with yoga, massage, and trigger-point techniques gives her a wholistic and intuitive sense of the source of chronic pain and how to correct it. She has given me relief from years of chronic headaches that no other traditional or alternative practitioner (and I had tried them all!) has been able to provide. Best of all, she teaches her clients techniques to use at home to empower them to break the cycle of chronic pain. What a gift!
