Katelyn Pidperyhora is a recent graduate from the Professional Institute of Massage Therapy in Saskatoon, SK. She is now a fully Registered Massage Therapist and a proud member of MTAS (Massage Therapist Association of Saskatchewan).
Strongly influenced by her life-partner Jordan R. Smith RMT, Katelyn experienced the benefits of a more natural, proactive approach to healing through Myofascial Release early on. In February of 2020, she was asked to attend John F. Barnes' Myofascial Release Approach®: Women's Health Seminar in Sedona, Arizona. Without hesitation, she agreed to be Jordan's female body and help support his passion & career.
"Nothing made sense anymore; I had to learn this work." - Katelyn
Having experienced the challenges and gaps associated with Women's Health first-hand, Katelyn saw this as a wonderful opportunity to involve herself and participate in the seminar series. It was in Sedona, AZ where Katelyn was opened to a whole new world of therapeutic treatment dedicated and designed for women. The course greatly impressed her and meeting the man behind the Myofascial Release movement, inspired her to ultimately change careers from Graphic Design to Massage Therapy.
Katelyn's approach to massage is creating a safe place using gentle, hands-on techniques in order to hold space for the client and allow for them to express themselves. The treatment session is client focused by working with you to understand your short and long-term goals utilizing Myofascial Release. Sometimes MFR can cause someone to shake involuntarily. Understand that shaking purges trauma from the cells and helps to recalibrate the nervous system. Understanding that emotions are our most important teacher in life, shaking, twitching, grunting or even screaming during your session may occur. We encourage you to allow this to happen; remembering that nothing can ever harm you. You are safe.
As of March 2023, Katelyn has completed the hands on Breast Massage course under the direction of Pam Fichtner RMT through the teachings of Debra Curties RMT, Author of "Breast Massage" & "Massage Therapy and Cancer". Katelyn is now certified to treat breast tissue and breast related symptoms; congestion, swelling, breast pain, post-surgical symptoms, scar tissue and any discomforts related to cancer treatments.
