About Our Massage Therapist: Kate Galuska
10 lucky ladies will be surprised with a 10-minute chair massage when they check-in at the event! Our therapist this year is Kate Galuska. You will love her! Here’s her bio…
My interest in the human body has evolved from playing sports to marathon running to developing a personal yoga practice to formally studying massage and bodywork to strength training and even power lifting. Through my personal journey and professional education, I have discovered the undeniable connection between physical, mental, and spiritual wellbeing. While my yoga practice and massage practice continue to build off of each other, my curiosity continues to guide me toward a deeper understanding of the human body. I love sharing my knowledge and experience of the body through massage; using my own hands guided by intuition and reason. Massage is an integral part of maintaining my well being and my intent is to give back the same high quality of care that I have received with the hope of helping others recognize their full potential. I’ve been a runner for over 30 years. In my 30’s I pushed myself to run marathon distances. Now, you’ll find me trail running for fun and enjoying the feeling of freedom that comes from running through the woods.
