Hello! My name is Kathryn Morris, but I go by Katie. I have been a licensed massage therapist since 2011 and a reiki practitioner since 2016. I was not taught self-care or how to listen to my body and needs while growing up. Through massage I have learned how to connect to myself as well as the importance of that connection. It brings me joy to help others learn to listen to their bodies and their needs and in doing so help them function better as a whole being that can love themselves. I believe strongly in the whole self, that we are spiritual or energetic beings that also have a physical and mental aspects. Thai massage and yoga have always called to me as ways to further my understanding of the whole self so that I can help my clients further their understandings of themselves as well. I am excited to finally be able to take this course after multiple delays and obstacles including having a child and the changes and challenges the world experienced in 2020.
