Hi there! I’m Kat Cortellucci, licensed Massage Therapist for many years in the Asheville area. Voted “Best of WNC” for 7 consecutive years by local magazine Mountain X. I am centrally located to downtown Asheville.
Massage therapists treat clients by using touch to manipulate the soft-tissue muscles of the body. With their touch, therapists relieve pain, rehabilitate injuries, reduce stress, increase relaxation, and aid in the general wellness of clients.
· Massage therapy promotes circulation. Joints become more flexible and have more range, immune system improvement occurs, and fatigue can be lessened.
· According to a 2007 American Massage Therapy Association survey, almost a quarter of all adult Americans had at least one massage in the previous year. And, they have a wide range of reasons for doing so. More and more people — especially baby boomers — recognize the health benefits of massage. They choose from among many massage styles to get relief from symptoms or to heal injuries, to help with certain health conditions, and to promote overall wellness.
