Katherine Whitwell

Born and raised in Clemson, South Carolina, Katherine graduated from Greenville Technical College’s Massage Therapy program in 2014. She was trained in numerous modalities such as deep tissue, trigger point therapy, sports, integrated/Swedish massage, manual lymphatic drainage (MLD), medical/treatment massage, kinesiology taping, passive/active stretching of the body, and functional/structural treatment massage.

Katherine uses her knowledge and experiences from working with sports teams that are associated with Clemson University, the Swamp Rabbits Greenville Hockey team, and her travel with the C3 challenge to Conquer Cancer (cycling team), assisting a medical team in Guatemala, as well as other health retreats.

Katherine considers entire body systems when working on clients with compromised health. When giving treatment massages, she uses active muscle movement, passive muscle movement, trigger point therapy, and stretching to help alleviate pain and to restore healing to the muscles. Katherine has the unique ability to work two different muscle groups at the same time. Ultimately, her goal is to assist the client through the rehabilitation and healing process in order to have a better quality of life.

Katherine also graduated in 2012 from Northland International University in Dunbar, Wisconsin, and received a Bachelor of Science degree in Piano Pedagogy. She played on the Women’s Soccer team where she learned the importance of stretching exercises and how to overcome sport’s injuries.

As a musician, Katherine views each client as a unique and intrinsic melody. She enjoys problem solving so that the student or client can experience freedom to become a beautiful composition. Katherine continues to teach piano after 15 plus years.

She loves being outdoors, going to the beach and mountains, reading, arranging music, working on house projects, and spending time with her family and friends.
