I love WESOS because of the inspiring entrepreneurial women I have met.
Hi, my name is Kathy Kessenich and I am a licensed massage therapist. I completed over 700 hours of coursework in massage therapy techniques, anatomy, physiology and kinesiology and have hundreds of hours of hands on practice. Based in Swedish and Deep Tissue Massage, I also utilize techniques from a variety of other modalities including cranial sacral, reflexology and positional release. I am trained in Oncology Massage to make the necessary adaptations to support clients who are undergoing active cancer treatment or are in recovery.
I approach massage therapy as a health facilitator working in partnership with the people who seek my services. I believe that massage therapy is a tool through which people can access an awareness and greater connection with their own bodies to help them live more comfortably and happily. My hope is that this awareness can gradually move people toward a better understanding of the body’s ability to heal itself and put them in a frame of mind to actively affect their own health.
I also partner with and mentor motivated professionals interested in creating more flexibility and work/life balance by educating others on how to access wellness on a budget. I work in partnership with a US wellness manufacturing company that provides safer, healthier options for people interested in enhancing their physical, environmental, personal and financial wellness.
I am privileged to co-lead the WESOS Evanston Chapter with Judy Sachs. We are excited about the growing group of women entrepreneurs who have joined us.
