Kathleen Miller-Read, LMP
Kathleen grew up in Wisconsin, where she studied Massage Therapy. She was actually considering a career in music as a classical guitarist when she received a massage that made her feel so wonderful that she looked into acquiring the skill herself. Her teachers knew right away she’d make a rich career out of it.
In fact, she has served many roles in the American Massage Therapy Association over the years, including that of President. She has also been a strong advocate for massage therapists across the country, including improving legislation at state level.
Kathleen strongly believes in natural wellness, and notes that anything natural always seems to help her more than the Western medicine alternatives, with no side effects other than wanting more! She also advocates for prevention, commenting that the cost of holistic medicine is often lower in the long run than mainstream band-aid type approaches.
Kathleen lives north of Seattle with her husband TJ. She has had many dogs over the past 40 years, as she opened her heart and home to older dogs, the last of whom recently passed away. She hopes to be able to welcome another one very soon.
Heather Robinson, LMP
Heather was born and raised in Jamaica, but came to the US with her family as a teenager, first to San Antonio, and then to Seattle, where she raised six children.
She first became a nursing assistant, but after a while, the time came for a career change. Knowing she wanted to stay in healthcare, Heather looked into various careers, such as rehab and physical therapy, but eventually opted for massage, which she has been doing since 2003.
She likes holistic wellness, and specifically massage therapy, because she can see where it works with her very own eyes. This is especially clear to her when working with auto or work injury patients, who often have anxiety and trauma on top of their physical pain. “You can see their range of motion improving; their pain is lessened; their overall energy is increased; their muscles are not as tight; even their confidence level is higher,” she argues. “There’s no second guessing if what I’m doing works -I see the proof.”
Another reason she loves her job is because of the feedback she gets from her patients. “Knowing you’re loved and appreciated is what gives you the urge, the energy and the desire to come to work.”
In her spare time, Heather enjoys gardening, crocheting, cooking and dancing.
