I relocated to Hawaii for "just the summer” 24 years ago.
For the past 22 years, I've been involved in the healing arts which began with becoming a massage therapist. After stepping into this new realm, I was intensely drawn to study a wide range of healing methods and modalities applied from many different theories and cultures. With all my years of study combined, I funneled my experiences into a powerful and effective woven blend I now call my own while facilitating them through a source of an innate guidance.
My journey has been filled with many different courses, countries and callings that became increasingly abundant along my path. This shaped my life with many incredible adventures while following a map of holistic wellness and spiritual treasures.

Kat Michelle was recommended to me by a friend. When we met for the session she was warm and welcoming while we had a quick talk about what was bothering me. With her expertise and unique style she was able to address and help resolve these issues and I left the appointment feeling a lot better. The shift in my body left me SO relaxed! Looking forward to my next massage with Kat Michelle. She is super professional with a great energy throughout.
I wasn’t sure what to expect in my first session with Kat. At the time, I felt like I was stuck in a rut and was having a hard time taking necessary action in my life. A friend referred me to Kat and I decided to open myself to a new experience. First of all, Kat is an incredible bodyworker. She may be small, but she is STRONG and has great intuition on where you hold tension. As an athlete, I need more than just a massage that feels good, I need my body to move and perform better, and she definitely helped make that happen! Beyond the physical bodywork, she has a true intuitive gift. It’s hard to explain, as this was a new experience for me. During the session, I felt like I went through an emotional purge. She physically assisted me in drawing that negative energy out. It was incredibly powerful. Ever since then, I’ve felt lighter, less stuck, and more clarity in my thoughts and actions. I will definitely be going back to Kat for regular maintenance on my body, mind and soul.
Thank you very much for your treatment during my stay on Maui. Being a therapist myself for many years, it is not easy to trust my well-being to other random hands. I am fortunate to have met you and truly believe you are a gifted-therapist passionate about your work. The result and energy can be felt rather than put in words. I will not hesitate to give your name to friends and clients if they are going to Maui for holiday. Bless you and keeping on healing. www.soundpeace.ca
I started working with Kat a few months back. My life had decided it was time for a major shift. I was troubled and being pulled from many angles. My first session with Kat was one I'll never forget. The calm that surrounded me days after was just what I needed to start healing and focus on clarity. I have had 3 sessions with her and just the bodywork alone is amazing. She knows how to redirect unsupportive energy that had been holding me back. She is such a humble, beautiful being and truly knows how to shift and remove emotional and physical pain. I'm looking forward to many more sessions with her as I go down my path in a new light. I highly, highly recommend her for clarity and body work. Truly a master!
One of the great joys of receiving bodywork is watching yourself accepting and trusting another's hands as they explore the qualities within your tissues. Kat Michelle has a gift in assisting this state by soothing and easing the body through her sensitive listening and intuitive touch. With her diverse and skillful ability to work gently and fluidity to the unwinding of deeper strains through myofascial releases, Kat Michelle’s treatments help restore a balanced state of being.
Kat Michelle’s massage is strong and focused. Her hands seem to know where to go. Even issues we did not discuss, she finds with her hands and gives special attention. Her deep work in my neck and shoulders released old holding patterns and allowed my jaw to relax more deeply than it has since I was a child. My body aligns easily after body work with Kat Michelle and I feel as if I am floating after the session as I move my body.
Kat is by far the best massage therapist/energy worker I know. As a business man who is involved with many community assignments, plus having a sporty lifestyle, regular massage is very important to me and the skill of the therapist is paramount. Kat provides deeply remedial treatment as well as a very holistic and relaxing experience that I highly recommend. She is a great therapist who tailors her treatments precisely to your needs and regularly introduces new techniques. I am delighted to be a regular client of hers.
I love working with Kat. She is beautiful inside and out. Her energy is radiant and loving and I feel safe that she only has my best interest at heart. Before working with Kat my energy was low, there was depression and self loathing at times. My lower back was painful and knees were swollen and I couldn't squat. My first session was over the phone and short and quite impressive. So much energy started moving and shifting. It was the start of me feeling stronger and happier. I appreciate very much that we can work together energetically and with breath to help move the body and being to a more loving and healthy existence. I go through a little emotional cleansing after a session sometimes. I now can bend more freely because my lower back has improved tremendously. I cry, laugh, and am allowing myself to feel more than I have in a very long time. Kat has helped me get that my heart can be open and I am safe. We have more work to do, and I am so much looking forward to it! I am already happier and have more ease in my body, mind, and soul. I am 66. Kat is amazing!!! I love her work. She can hold a space for so much to change.
It started on a Friday, our beloved little girl Snert, a 12 year old Shih-Tzu wasn’t acting like herself. By Sunday we decided we would go to the vet on Monday. After 3-4 hours at the vet on Monday, we were told she had a 10-20% chance of surviving, shown an estimate and then asked if we wanted to proceed or put her down at that time. It was devastating as we were caught so off guard without any preparation to her even being ill. Acute Pancreatitis and the xray/ultrasound they assumed was showing advanced cancer of the liver. We started treatment and brought her home. One of our dear friends made a recommendation of this amazing healer woman called Kat she had recently discovered and hooked us up. Before we knew it, she was at our house. It was during the first 15 minutes of her working hands on with Snert that we could see an amazing change in her. It was very obvious to both me and my wife. Kat continued over the next week stopping by frequently to work on Snert. After a week of this, Snert went on to make a full recovery from the Pancreatitis and the assumed cancer turned out to be benign! Snert owes her life to Kat and we are forever grateful!! Aloha,
My husband, Rob, did sessions with Kat Michelle and they were extremely helpful, to the point of being transformative. He is a naturally stressed out and compulsive person who has always struggled with even modestly stressful situations. Dealing with traffic and even waiting in long lines while shopping stressed him out and triggered strong irritability and anger. After Kat Michelle's sessions, he was transformed. He was no longer stressed out by things that would have blown his top before. He was peaceful, rested, and centered. The sessions were a godsend because shortly thereafter we were involved in a horribly stressful business deal, selling our family business to Berkshire Hathaway. The process was long, drawn-out, and extremely difficult, and with Rob's issues it would have been severely damaging to him, if not crippling, had he not had the transformative effects of Kat Michelle's sessions. In the years since my sessions with Kat Michelle, I have been able to not only deal with ordinary stresses, but extraordinary and unusually stressful situations that would probably have been devastating before. Because of Kat Michelle's sessions, I have been able not only to cope, but also to thrive in every aspect of my life, far more than I could before.
Before my sessions with Kat, my emotional and mental state was fragile and compromised. I was hampered by significant anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsive tendencies, and mild post-traumatic stress disorder. I come from a family of successful entrepreneurs and business people and my mental struggles were keeping me from succeeding to the fullest in the family business and in my own company, as well as in my family and other relationships. My sessions with Kat Michelle were extremely effective, so much so that I knew I wanted to come back to Maui for the follow up sessions. They left me relaxed, balanced, happy, and centered when before I was imbalanced. The sessions also turned out to be timely, because shortly after the first round of treatments, my family went through a long, grueling process of selling one of our companies to Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway. The process was complicated and extremely stressful for all of us, and my sessions with Kat Michelle made me much more able to handle the business and interpersonal relationship stresses of the transaction. I highly recommend Kat Michelle's sessions for anyone struggling with anxiety, depression, OCD, or PTSD. I vouch for the process for businessmen seeking to shore up weaknesses or enhance their abilities so they can perform to the fullest.
I routinely have a massage on the mainland twice a month as maintenance for my overall well being; so finding Kat as a massage therapist/energy worker was such a gift for me as I live part time on Maui. Kat is so intuitive about the physical needs of my body as well as the emotional needs to bring my body and mind back to well being. I appreciate her many massage techniques that she incorporates in the sessions. Never thought I’d find someone as talented as my massage therapist on the mainland! She’s a real treasure.
