Kaitlin is a Licensed massage therapist, physical theater artist and 4th-generation Brooklynite. Her bodywork modalities include Swedish massage, myofascial release, prenatal massage, sports massage, and shiatsu & acupressure. Kaitlin also works professionally as a pediatric hospital clown at Hassenfeld Children's Hospital. She strives to bring a similar joyful levity to her massage practice. Through her hospital clowning and performance work, she has cultivated deep and easeful listening skills that allow her to meet her clients where they are. In her bodywork, she aims to create a judgement-free space for clients to unwind, center, and reconnect with themselves. She works diligently to cultivate a practice that is anti-racist, LGBTQ-friendly, trans-affirming, and trauma-informed.
We often don't realize how our busy lifestyles take a toll on our bodies. The speed and efficiency with which we are asked to work and achieve isn't great for our nervous systems. Massage reminds our body and brain to slow down. This parasympathetic activation is what helps the body rest, heal and recover from trauma, injury and exhaustion.
As a NYS Licensed Massage Therapist, I aim to:
create a safe and relaxing environment
invite more breath and rest
educate my clients about their anatomy and physiology
help the body recover from injury and/or trauma
improve posture, breathing, stress management and sleep
enhance body awareness
help foster an edified relationship to pain and discomfort
During our session together, my goal is to offer a peaceful, relaxing, judgement-free zone where you can tune out the world and tune into yourself. I’m here to help improve your interioception, to facilitate and hold space for your internal growth, discovery and healing. Let's go!
