About Kata and Kata's Way

Welcome to my page. I am Kata, originally from Finland, a great and innovative Bodyworker in South-Charlotte. I am highly specialized massage therapist who is oriented to find the best possible solution to your painful issues.

I am a truly curious person and my goal is to find out if there is something out of balance in your body. The simplest example is that you are using your right arm and hand more than left one (if you are right-handed of course), and if that is the case, your right side tends to lean more forward that left. My way of seeing the whole picture, is to find out on what level of spine your muscular imbalance begins and work from there to improve the situation and trying to find a balanced position. Sometimes there is no pain or discomfort with these imbalances, but with many of us, these habitual and slowly advancing small things tend to get worse by time.

In addition to muscles and other soft tissues, we have to consider how our nervous system functions and how to work along with it. One of the major goals of any kind of treatment is to 'calm down' the sympathetic nervous system, activate the parasympathetic and give the body a possibility to relax and reduce to the alpha waves. That happens with any type of massage and key here is to allow change to happen.

My work is deep without being painful.

My style gives you real results, if you do your share and listen to my instructions. With me you are going to learn a new ways of helping yourself, which also means, that there will be good deal of un-learning from old habits. I am adamant on this! If you are not willing to give up your yoga class for a couple of weeks, there is nothing I can do to your frozen shoulder. If you work along with me, we will most probably bring 90% of your mobility (without pain) back in 8 weeks.

I am here to help you bring back the balance as much as we can, relieve the tension in your muscles, open up your joints to move more freely, get rid of nerve impingement, re-educate muscular pathways, open up lymphatic drainage and even stretch your ligaments. Your work is even more essential: help to re-educate your pathways with optimal movement therapy and accept what your body is trying to tell you! That means that I will also help you to find best ways to stretch, exercise and take care of yourself. An efficient treatment is a two-way-path!

Here is an example about what could happen during a treament:
