Welcome, Katrina

A new year often spurs changes. Some changes are a result of things we didn't like of the previous year and we don't want to re-experience; other changes are just a way of moving forward.

One change Reconnecting will be experiencing is of the latter, a movement forward:

There were a handful of days during the last few months of 2008 I noticed a significant increase in business for which I could have used a little bit of help. After much thought, I decided it would be a good idea to contract another therapist to help with the occasional overflow of clients as well as assist with the increasing request of couples and/or friends coming together for a massage.

And, much as it always happens when we're accept-ant of change, I met Katrina who recently finished school and was looking for a place to build her own clientele.

Katrina graduated from CUP's Venango Campus 600 hour Massage Therapy Certification program in August of 2008.

Although she is currently an employee at a local care-giving business, she also offers massage on an on-call basis at the Clarion River Lodge in Cooks Forest. She's anxious to start building a regular clientele at Reconnecting and has already started seeing a few clients of her own as well as helped with a few couples/friends massages. All the clients that Katrina gains from her own hard work at advertising or from Reconnecting's overflow of business will remain her clients as long as she's contracted with Reconnecting (additionally, all clients already seen by Donna will continue to be considered her clients and only seen by her).

Katrina has a strong technique and a passion to learn through teaching and experience. She's not fully sure of where she wants massage to take her in life; but she's considering additional training in massage for Cancer patients.

If you've already seen Katrina for a massage and enjoyed it or felt better afterwards, don't forget to reschedule. And, don't forget to tell your friends and family.
