REV. KATE FRANTA is a state-licensed and nationally certified massage therapist, and she holds a PhD in Holistic Ministry, gracefully combining healing of the body with healing of the spirit. She started as a physical therapist and was immediately drawn to hands-on healing techniques such as massage and myofascial release. After completing her massage therapist training in 1999, she began studying shamanism and energy work, apprenticing with a Native American energy healer for two years. She then earned her doctorate in 2005 in Holistic Ministry, which combined a study of world religions, ancient and modern spiritual practices, and the link between body, mind, and spirit.
Kate’s massage and energy work practice offers deep tissue, myofascial release, lymph drainage therapy, craniosacral therapy, reiki, relaxation and pregnancy massage. Her ministry work includes offering ceremonies (weddings, memorials, coming-of-age), sacred counsel, shamanic healing, and grief counsel. She is also an Independent Distributor of Young Living Essential Oils, teaming aromatherapy with any of the modalities as indicated for her clients.
Whether LDT for reducing edema in a client’s left arm after breast cancer treatment, or massage to treat a running injury, or soul retrieval for spiritual integration, Kate works with her clients for the best fit in treatment to get authentic, lasting results.
