Formerly known as Kathleen Schmitz Massage
Hi all! I am a morning massage therapist at the gym and I am so excited to join the team. I look forward to helping you in your health journey! My massage is very versitle and tailered toward you as the client.
A little about me:
I grew up in a tiny town in Washington State and got my massage therapy license at the Cortiva Institute's 750 hour program. I moved to Colorado in 2018 to live with my finace and have enjoyed every second of being here. Wellington feels a lot like home to me! While I am a home body, in my free time I like to get dirty with paint and work on crafts that I don't need, tend to my tiny garden/help my flowers thrive, read every type of book there is (including text books), or ride my bike around town.
