Katie Lipman, RMT
Katie has been a Registered Massage Therapist since October 2008, practicing in Vaughan. She completed her Massage Therapy Diploma program at the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy in Toronto and graduated with honors.
Katie provides Massage Therapy, Life Coaching and Intuitive Healing sessions for clients that are in need of deep relaxation, pain relief, direction and clarity. Her personal philosophy is that as humans we have physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of self and in order to have an effect on one, we need to be aware of the other two.
With an understanding of human science and also a deep connection and respect for the spiritual self, Katie uses her knowledge of human anatomy and her own intuition and inner guidance in sensing what the body needs for healing to occur.
Katie’s approach when it comes to Massage Therapy is to first and foremost assist the client to experience deep relaxation and reconnection to self. She facilitates this experience by grounding herself fully in the moment and placing her awareness and intention wholeheartedly on the client and their needs. From this space Katie provides a massage to renew the spirit, relieve stress and tension and encourage the body and mind to rest. Using a combination of Swedish massage, deep tissue massage and trigger point release Katie has great results relieving muscular pain, headaches, migraines and anxiety. Katie’s treatments can include essential oils, deep relaxation techniques and Reiki. She also loves to end each session with a head, scalp and face massage to further enhance her clients feeling of restoration.
In her spare time, Katie is a Mom, a musician and singer and loves to be out in nature or traveling to experience new places. She looks forward to meeting you and being a part of your journey to optimal well-being!

What is Fascial Stretch Therapy?
Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) is a unique system of table-based assisted stretching which focuses on the muscles and connective tissue that surround and encompass the joints.
Fascia is a network of layered connective tissue that surrounds muscles, bones and joints. The joint capsule that surrounds joints is involved in optimizing the mechanical function of the joint and is also part of the fascial network.
What makes this therapy different from other flexibility programs is that each stretch begins with a light traction of the joint being treated, to allow for a deeper stretch. This is an excellent treatment choice for those wanting to improve flexibility, recover from training, and for injury prevention.
It is good to feel good.
