Katie Veatch LMT, CPMT, CIMT has over a decade of experience working with children and families in both private and public settings. During a volunteer outreach trip to Vietnam in 2010 with the Liddle Kidz Foundation, Katie learned firsthand the benefits of massage for infants and children while teaching infant massage to caregivers in orphanages. Soon thereafter, Katie attended massage school in Southern Oregon and graduated with a new understanding of the human body and an education to provide healthy, nurturing touch to both children and adults. 

In addition to massage, Katie has a background in yoga and is certified to teach yoga to adults as well as to children with special needs. Through movement, massage therapy, and birth doula services, Katie is honored to have an opportunity to share sacred space with each client, big or small.
