"All of us want to belong and know that we are safe...within our families, within our workplaces or schools,  and within the culture at large. Knowing that we have a safe place where will be accepted unconditionally with all our flaws is a deeply visceral experience. I feel grateful and honored to provide that safe space for my clients and to provide them with the opportunity to both internalize and reproduce a core experience of love, acceptance, and safety in all aspects of their lives. When clients bring their flaws, their pain, and shame to the safe-space of my office they are always met with unconditional positive regard. This acceptance is the beginning of belonging. . . the beginning of freedom."


KATRIN FINK
Licensed Massage Therapist

Headshot for websites-2          Strong, safe relationships start with calm, secure people. Massage therapy supports psychological integration and mindful awareness of the body's process in relationships. Massage therapy is an essential component of trauma work, opening the door to remembering what it is like to feel safe within one's body boundaries. 
          Katrin Fink, LMT is an experienced and skilled massage therapist who is passionate about helping people heal and improve the quality of their lives.  She graduated from the Sarasota School of Massage in 1997 and then continued her studies in medical massage.  She received her certification as a Neuromuscular Massage Therapist in 1999 from the International Academy of Neuromuscular Therapies in St Petersburg, FL.   Neuromuscular Massage Therapy (NMT) identifies and treats soft tissue pain and dysfunction.   
             Katrin has also been practicing Craniosacral Therapy since 2005.  Craniosacral Therapy is a very gentle form of “hands-on”, manual therapy that releases tension and restrictions deep within the body, relieves pain and improves the clients overall health.  It strengthens the body’s natural healing ability and it is a preventive technique to bolster the body’s resistance to disease.
             Most recently, Katrin has earned her certification as a Bowenwork practitioner.  Bowenwork is a gentle muscle and connective tissue therapy that utilizes small and measured inputs to the body at specific sites which stimulate the nervous system to create greater healing and balance in the body.  (For more information please see www.americanbowen.academy)
            Katrin has been working with patients recovering from auto accidents, chronic and acute pain, sports injuries, cancer, stress and many other health challenges for many years. She has witnessed over and over the effects of skilled and intuitive bodywork in helping people heal and recover.  She also continues to take classes to deepen her understanding and knowledge as a healing practitioner.  For more information please go to www.katrinfinklmt.com
