Katherine's Massage Philosophy

Katherine's love for the body and how it moves lead her down the path of Sports Medicine and then exploring the healing capacity of massage therapy.  Katherine's massage style and focus is based around balancing proper movement, body mechanics, and the connective tissue - fascia.

​The "style" of massage technique that she applies is most related to the Structural Integrative approach, she began this journey in 2000 after receiving her Bachelors of Science in Sports Medicine.  She has a vast knowledge of the Musculo-Skeletal system of the body and educates her clients during the sessions on the best ways to keep the body in optimal alignment.

"The marriage between the knowledge of massage and the practice of yoga creates a well balanced, relaxing, and informative session."

Katherine has always and will continue to be a student of the body and mind.  The marriage between the knowledge of massage and the practice of yoga creates a well balanced, relaxing, and informative session.  This is the only body we get in this life time, we need to learn to be sensitive, listen, and be kind to our amazing vessels!

It is through the power of these potent teachings that Katherine's light playful nature lives and her teaching encourage others to do the same. Ms. Wilder is also a very at home in the water and absolutely loves surfing. Throughout the SwellWomen retreats, Katherine will guide you through multiple asanas to strengthen the areas of the body needed for surfing, as well as opening the areas that take the most abuse when your on your surf board.  I look forward to seeing you on the mat and in the water!

"Katherine encourages her students to remember the importance of having fun and how to play in the realms of the mind and body liberating the spirit"

Katherine has been studying yoga since 2001 and has the the opportunity to teach since 2004. The philosophy and Universal Principles of Alignment of the Anusara Yoga method have had the most influence on Katherine's life, yoga practice, and teaching style, unveiling the deepest experience and understanding of connection between the spirit, mind, & body. It is this understanding that fuels her teachings, Katherine encourages her students to remember the importance of having fun and how to play in the realms of the mind and body liberating the spirit.  She has learned through experience that creating proper alignment in the mind and body allows for freedom in heart.

Otherwise known as "KK," this woman is an asset to my operation and The Wilder Way as a whole. Born and raised outside of Boston, kk and I met in yoga nearly four years ago. After seeking the benefits of therapeutic massage for her soul suit (body), kk's decision to "Get Wilder" took another turn when we both realized that, together, we made a phenomenal team and so, we joined forces.

If you haven't already figured it out, reaching out to kk is THE BEST and MOST EFFICIENT way to book a session with me. Please don’t hesitate to contact her to schedule a massage, cancel or rebook an existing appointment or if you have any questions regarding bodywork, etc.

When she isn't fiercely organizing my calendar or upping my social media game, you can find kk on her yoga mat at our favorite studio, Soul Space Yoga and Wellness, creatively cooking up a storm in the kitchen, working on her second book, advocating for patients at The Paley Orthopedic & Spine Institute at her big girl job or soaking up the sun and rolling in the sand at the beach. 

 

She is such a blessing in my life and organization, I am grateful to have her on my team. Together, you can rest assured your'e in the best hands as you begin your inner journey towards your "Wilder Self".
