About Kathryn and her work!

Kathryn has been a Kentucky Licensed and Nationally Certified Massage Therapist

and member of the AMTA (American Massage Therapy Association)

since graduating from the Lexington Healing Arts Academy in 2009.

Since then she has made it a priority to further her education and skills each year, expanding her ability to help others

eliminate pain and live a healthy and active life!

Before becoming an L.M.T she suffered several injuries, on top of a birth defect to her L5 vertebrae leaving her in severe chronic pain. Nine months after beginning regular massage, coupled with  Dr. Chris Sipple's chiropractic care  and focusing on hydration, diet and exercise to maintain her outcome, she had a new lease on life and made the decision to go back to school to become a massage therapist and work alongside of Dr. Chris Sipple   to help others live a more pain-free and healthy life!!

And now after 11 amazing years have joined the team at

Peace Be Still Massage and Wellness!

About My Techniques

What is Orthopedic Massage Therapy?

Orthopedic Massage is a multidisciplinary approach to relieving muscular

and soft tissue pain, dysfunction, and injuries. It is also utilized to help clients regain and improve their health and fitness.

A multidisciplinary approach is far more powerful than one technique or form of treatment.

Orthopedic Massage  uses three major processes:

• Functional musculoskeletal assessment  • Customized deep tissue and fascial massage

• Systematic strength and stretch training and exercises

Properly performed

and directed by a licensed therapist,

Orthopedic Massage Therapy restores the body’s structural balance, significantly reduces acute soft tissue pain, and improves flexibility.

Who benefits from Orthopedic Massage?

Clients who benefit from orthopedic massage suffer from conditions including:

-Chronic pain and sports injuries  -Thoracic-outlet syndrome
               - Frozen-shoulder  - Rotator-cuff injuries

A little bit about what I love

My Home in the Holler

With God All Things Are Possible!!

I purchased 20 acres of land  in 1998. It wasn't much just a property that was overgrown,

1 1/12 miles from a paved road , but I was determined to make it a home. So with much dedication and faith,  I built myself a little 12x12 logcabin and was thrilled to have a roof over my head and call it home!!

21 years later, I am beyond blessed that all my hard work, faith  and dedication, has me now living on a beautiful piece of land in a very comfortable offgrid home.

My Babies

GraceMay, Eureka, Ava

& CottonJoe

After never having  the opportunity to have children of my own, my animals  are my babies. GraceMay is my Lab mix that I rescued from the shelter. Grace is very loyal and very protective! Eureka is my little blue healer, boston terrier mix who's life I saved when I found her dropped off in a snowstorm, starving in single digit temps! Ava is my little Siamese mouser rescue and Cotton Joe is My Boy of 19 years! He joined me in the holler as a 4 month old Colt and the sweetest horse you'll ever meet. I'm so thankful for the unconditional love and protection my animals give me!

The Outdoors

If You Don't Move It

You Loose It!!

When I was young, I traveled for 6 years and set up camp in the woods wherever I went. That love of nature has never left me!! And so at 45 yrs old I took a trip to hike 42 miles of the appalachian trail. Much like when i was young in the woods,  it reminded me that you can do whatever your mind lets you do!! There where times when I felt like giving up and  times I feared for my life, but it's in those times my faith lifted my weight and carried me and made me stronger!  Now I can look back and am so  thankful for the amazing experiences I've had  that have taught me so much about life!!!
