Licenced Massage Therapist
Cathrin (Cat) Barthels graduated from Seattle Massage School in 1995 and has been practicing for 22 years. She has the experience of owning her own clinic with four locations and a staff of 15 and is a certified personal trainer and previous owner and operator of a fitness gym in Lake Stevens.
Cat specializes in injury treatment massage. She herself has had many serious accidents, injuries and surgeries over her career. Most recent was when she fell 25 feet off a 3rd story balcony on to concrete. She broke her back, fractured her neck, shattered her pelvis, broke her hip, shoulder, ribs ect. she had a spinal cord injury that had left her paralyzed in several areas. Cat wasn’t supposed to live or walk again. This has helped her understand and be more compassionate to those in pain and the frustrations with any recovery from an injury. She believes in the healing of massage and her goal is and has always been to help the client get thru the pain and difficulties of recovery and know there is light at the end of the tunnel.
