Kati Waygood RMT, BSc, DO(MP)

Hailing from the East Coast of Canada, Kati’s interest in hands-on manual therapy originally led her to study the art of massage in New Brunswick. From there, an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and functional, whole-body strategies pushed her to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology, and finally into her current study of Manual Osteopathy.    Using this unique education and her natural talent, Kati pulls from several toolboxes, working on the body as an entire unit, to help the client achieve their physical goals. She is trained in therapeutic, deep tissue and sport massage, advanced fascial work, and advanced remedial exercises, and builds her treatments on a foundation of functional assessment and whole-body focused osteopathic techniques to help understand and fully correct the issues her clients are facing.
