Kate Phillips, Registered Massage Therapist
Kate is an RMT in Halifax whose focus is to heal and evolve the mind and body together through her massage treatments. So much of where we are mentally affects our body and how we feel physically affects our mind. Massage Therapy can restore the balance and help us move through life lighter and brighter!
Her mission is to bring mindfulness, compassion and balance to each treatment, with the goal of releasing tension and imbalances in the body. She is intuitive with her pressure and myofasial release techniques and uses movement, cupping therapy and stretch to encourage postural improvements. She will help bring awareness to your body, posture, and breath to improve your overall wellness and personal goals.
Kate shares a deep connection to nature and is always seeking new corners to explore. She recently hiked the John Muir Trail- a long distance trek in Sierra Nevada mountain range of California. Over 21 days she hiked more then 338 KM, completing the hike by climbing Mount Whitney, which is the highest mountain in California. Challenges like this are what ignited her inner healer and passion for understanding the body. She brings the same type of energy and enthusiasm into her treatment room!
