Anna's Success Story
I had been battling a semi-debilitating case of vertigo for over a month (and off and on for over a decade). I was depressed, I slept a lot, because the vertigo didn't allow me to do much else, and I couldn't focus on work or life. I felt absolutely horrible in my body, spirit, and emotions, and didn't feel like I could go on for much longer. I felt detached from my body, with no grounded center.
I had to cancel many shifts of work, and wasn't pursuing any of my usual hobbies.
Through working with Kate, my vertigo went away completely. No more spins, dizziness, headaches, no more nausea, and a huge emotional weight lifted from my body and heart. Kate helped me locate the source of my vertigo, and with her expert, caring touch, incredible intuition, and sweet gentle humor, guided me to tap into the vertigo's emotional/energetic root.
Kate's Craniosacral treatments allowed me to release decades of emotional pain and rebalance my energy. As a result - no more vertigo! In addition, my depression has greatly subsided and I am now rediscovering the many joys of day-to-day life, enjoying the present, and looking forward to the future.
Two sessions with Kate was all it took. For me personally, I wanted holistic healing. I was ready to get on the table and do the energetic work.
Through working with Kate to heal my physical and emotional self, I've learned how to better listen to and communicate with my energetic body. I am amazed at how much better I am able to pick up on the cues my body is giving me now - when I'm uncomfortable, when I feel unsafe, when I'm experiencing emotional triggers, when I'm starting to "drift away," not be present, etc. In other words, working with Kate taught me how to ground myself. In the past, I didn't feel like I fully dwelt in my body, and I used to often ignore how I felt, because I didn't think I could do anything to change it. Now, I know I can change it.
I feel happier than I have felt in about a decade.
As the result of an injury, I had been experiencing constant pain in my hips for the past 6 years. Having seen multiple physical therapists and chiropractors to no avail, I had begun to accept that it wasn't going away and I would just have to deal with it. After a series of sessions with Kate, the pain began to abate for the first time in years! After several months of sessions, exercises, and Kate's informed guidance, it is no longer a part of my daily life. I am still amazed everyday as I move about freely, and without pain, thanks to her outstanding knowledge and commitment to her work.

I have been going to Kate for treatments related to hip and back pain, so when I was going through a stressful time at work and was difficulty taking deep breaths I thought maybe Kate could help. When I went in I felt I was only able to use about 50% of my lung capacity. The next day I felt I was back to normal - this after a month of not being able to take a deep breath! I feel the work helped break the cycle of tension that was restricting my breathing, and allowed me to feel normal again – and that was amazing!

Thank you so much for your work yesterday. It helped relieve intense discomfort that has been consuming me for months, as well as help me take a step back and look at my life in a more healthful, holistic way. Your work is incredible. I especially enjoyed your guided meditation during the bodywork. I think it allowed me to access a deeper level of healing during the session.
Thanks again, I will continue to recommend you to all of my friends.

I literally had over 30 different massage therapists before meeting Kate. I'm glad I finally met her! She is the best in Portland. Give her a try - you won't be disappointed.
