Summer is here!

I’m sorry that I haven’t been writing anything for a long time. But on the other hand I’m not, since not having time to put on blogging simply means that I have been busy. I’m so thankful for having many new clients and excited to have been able to share my new location with my dearest clients of all: everyone who followed me from Ballantyne Village first to my home office and now to my current location. I’m so blessed!

Yes, I’m still taking in a couple new clients but eventually I will go to a bit lighter  schedule for the summer time. I won’t be working on most Mondays (unless you’re my family), so please book ahead if you know your schedules and want to keep your regular appointment times. I will not visit  Finland this summer, but I’ll have my family visiting me, so I have cleared 2 weeks off of my calendar: June 19-22 I will be visiting NYC and July 2-5 taking my family to the beach. The rest of the July and beginning of August you can book your appointments Tue-Wed-Thu 9am-5pm.

I don’t see any big changes in front of me at the moment but steady work load at the current office. I’m surrounded by 3 wonderful therapist who are specialized in the breast health and helping us to find our optimal health and wellbeing. We are proud to announce that we offer excellent Reflexology Sessions by Caterina Jones on Fridays at my room! She has changed my life (the first session throw me to a pretty interesting detoxification process, oh boy) and I can wholeheartedly recommend her services to everyone.

I’m also discovering the wonders of Feldenkreis Method to keep my body going. Paula Alonso has showed me a completely new way of using my poor body (and yea, I thought I already know how my body functions, but again: oh boy), so maybe there’s a new alley for me to investigate workwise when I’ll get over this enjoyable being just a client phase.

So, being busy feels good but so does the summer heat! I hope that you all will have a wonderful summer and whenever you need me, remember that Balanced is Painless and that’s Kata’s Way!

Here’s my scheduling link: Kata’s Way. See you soon!

Out of town 3/26 - 3/30

I am pleased to tell you that I have been busy in my new office and I just love working there! I have already learned new things and gotten wonderful, caring and helpful new colleagues.

Also our Pilates classes on Tuesday afternoons are going well (if you are interested ask me more, we can accommodate 1-2 more health enthusiasts to our semi private classes) and I’m beyond happy to work at the place where there is The Infrared Sauna for me and my clients to use (it has NOTHING to do with the REAL thing, but it’ll keep you warm nonetheless).

I’m fortunate to have some more spots for new clients, but next couple of weeks are pretty much booked, because I will take some vacation time before Eastern. I’m counting the days for my best friend from Finland to come for a visit and we’ll make a girls’ trip to St. Augustine and Savannah the last week of March.

My next openings are the first week of April, but if you really need some balancing before that, shoot me a text and I will let you know if there’s a cancellation. I’m waiting for a spring to get here since that’s my favorite time of the year! Hope to see you soon and remember that this is Kata’s Way and that is Painless because the Balanced is Painless. Enjoy your time!

Open House on Valentine’s Day

I have settled in to my new office and I just love it! I have plenty of room, private bathroom, colleagues to work with and most of all: I have the best clients. That’s why, I’m arranging

Open House at February 14th! 

Please, drop by and bring a friend to meet me and my team on Valentine’s Day between 3 and 6! I will have some snacks, coffee (of course) and homemade cinnamon rolls. Feel free to bring  something if you wish, bur the main thing is if YOU show up!

In Finland we don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day, but FRIENDSHIP DAY and this year I truly need my friends on that particular date, since I will be dropping my daughter off for a study abroad that same morning... what a spectacular reason to bake the ultimate Finnish comfort food. (Which I should nor eat, but I will this time.)

So, I hope to see you all at 7818B Renaissance Gardens on Valentine’s Day anytime between 3 and 6 to taste, smell and feel something good. Please, park by the pool on visitor parking (on the right hand side).

Can’t wait to see you and remember that this Kata’s Way where Balanced is Painless!

New office 1/8/2018!

I will start in my new office January 8th! Check the previous post if you want to check the address and instructions how to get there. I will be texting everyone the new address by phone in the first few weeks.

I am also taking a part of our office's online scheduling system and here´s the link for my scheduling: online scheduling. The system works under Effie Spurlin name, but just click Kata´s Way Treatment and the rest is self-explanatory. You won´t be able to pay my services online, but now you have a possibility to make or change your appointments easily! You can still give me a call or text, and I will be pleased to make your appointment for you like I have always done.

If you want do add our Infrared Sauna session after my treatment, you need to use it´s own link:
Infrared Sauna. Or you can ask me to do it for you! This is one of the great advantages of my new office. Here's a link to read more about InfraRedSauna.

I have also done quite a bit of research about Therapeutic Massage sessions´ pricing around south Charlotte and it´s now clear to me, that I need to raise my pricing accordingly. I do have an extensive training both in NC and in Europe and over 10 years experience. I have been working in North Carolina over 3,5 years. I am also back in paying a monthly rent, so I will have new pricing in the beginning of March. Please, plan accordingly, and purchase your 3 or 5 session series before that! I do not demand a monthly membership, I am flexible with scheduling (please, ask me if you need to schedule outside the timetable on online system) and I do offer a significant discount if you purchase 3 or 5 sessions in advance, and I´m not changing that. Kata's Way is therapeutic, goal oriented and in my treatment 60 minutes is actually 60 minutes treatment (undressing and dressing is on your own time).

I am so excited about this new year and new beginning! Here's what You will get:

  • Online scheduling
  • Cozy environment with other therapists
  • Possibility for semi-private Pilates classes to support our physical health goals
  • Spine Flexibility Session by CHI-machine (10-20mins) before or after your treatment for $10
  • InfraRed Sauna Session (45mins) for $30
  • Great location at Ballantyne

 I hope to see you soon at Kata´s Way where Balanced in Painless. 

P.S. Our OpenHouse will be February 14th, stay tuned.
