Katherine, a Colorado native, grew up participating in an array of winter sports, running, and dancing, giving her an innate fascination with the inner workings of the human body. She received her first acupuncture treatment at nine years old to help with a bout of indigestion, and has taken full advantage of the medicine for many other ailments throughout her life. She earned her degree in international studies and Spanish from the University of Denver after also studying abroad in Mendoza, Argentina at the Universidad del Cuyo and the Universidad del Congreso. While attending college, Katherine and her brother frequently visited Dr. Michael Winer, a chiropractor and energy healer, in Hood River, Oregon.
Katherine graduated from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine with her master’s degree in acupuncture and Oriental medicine. She is also accredited by the American College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, the Oregon Medical Board, and the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. She is enthusiastic about tackling any condition that may cause trouble, but she is especially interested in musculoskeletal pain, digestive issues, the aging process, women’s health, and the mental/emotional realm.
In her spare time, Katherine enjoys spending quality moments with her husband and their two chihuahuas, Falkor and Atreyu (Neverending Story reference!). She loves to dance, and is part of a hula halau where she participates and performs in Tahitian dancing. Being from Colorado, she is drawn to hiking, trail running, skiing, and general exploration where the outdoors may enchant her. She also has a serious case of travel bug whose only cure is to see the most exotic corners of the earth, and hopes to take her practice internationally in the future to help those who may not have immediate access to healthcare.

Chrys is a 7th generation Oregonian that grew up racing motorcycles, and he accrued several injuries along the way. After receiving several professional massages in his 20’s, Chrys was left with a thirst for knowledge that ultimately resulted in him enrolling in Everest Institute of Massage. He graduated in spring of 2015 and entered the massage spa industry practicing for 3-4 years. Chrys believes in using the least amount of muscle pressure possible to release the muscle, which can be deep or light depending on the client. He uses his intuition to tailor to each client individually which oftentimes results in the patient falling asleep on the table. Chrys also employs sports massage, trigger point therapy and muscle energy techniques for clients. In his spare time Chrys is a musician who likes to create and enjoys the outdoors (especially with his dog), and riding motorcycles with his friends.
I am a positive individual whose focus is to help people with their physical injuries and provide education on the connection between physical and mental health. I hope to inspire people and give them a new perspective on their health and life overall. I have spent five-plus years working in chiropractics, providing manual care. I am experienced with working with sports rehab, Autoimmune dysfunctions, and releasing emotional distress.
I have graduated from East West College of the healing arts with honors in massage therapy. I am a member of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA).
I provide deep tissue services with cupping, gua sha, tui na, neuromuscular therapy, and treatment with stress, anxiety, and depression.
