Katherine Colleen WalshKatherine Colleen Walsh, BPEd., RMT
Registered Massage Therapist

Colleen began her massage career in 2006 when she studied The Grinberg Method in Switzerland. Upon returning to Canada she became an RMT to work in the field of Health and Wellness which to say is her passion, is an understatement.

Colleen practices mindfulness techniques. She individualizes each treatment and every visit according to the needs of her patients. She has been training her whole life to be a health facilitator, having grown up an athlete and devoured everything she could study about wellness. Colleen also has a Phys. Ed degree from the University of Western Ontario which helps her with understanding the biomechanics causing the patient’s pain. As well, her love of anatomy aids in getting to the root of each patient’s problem quickly and effectively.

Colleen likes to say, she draws from her tickle trunk of modalities she has studied including, NISA Neuromuscular Integrative Stuctural Alignment, Shiatsu, and Cranial Sacral Therapy. She has recently begun a one year study of thealignsystems.com.

She practices what she preaches, receiving weekly massages, practicing pilates, yoga, and mindful meditation. She loves to ski, both on snow and water, golf, learn and laugh. Colleen likes to say, "Every body is the same, but everybody is different.”

"Sender and his staff are second to none. The training programs are personalized specifically to whatever your goals and ambitions are. The staff at SHAPE have pushed me to reach and exceed any and all of the goals I have made. Every workout is fun, new and exciting while still pushing me too my limit and getting the best results possible.
