Kathy grew up on a farm in rural Saskatchewan and was actively involved in sports from a young age. She is committed to promoting a holistic and active lifestyle she has instructed swimming, aerobics, water-skiing, coached her children’s soccer teams and practiced yoga for several years. She currently enjoys to downhill ski, skate, dance, swim, hike, bike, walk and is an avid gardener.
In the early 1990’s Kathy started to develop chronic physical pain problems that inhibited her life for several years. She pursued several different forms of therapy in her search for relieving the pain and gaining her life back. Unfortunately, the therapies she tried never totally resolved the pain. She heard of the Mitzvah Technique and as a last resort started private sessions with Amelia Itcush.
The Mitzvah Technique opened Kathy’s eyes to the patterns of misuse which all people use in their daily activities. These holding patterns create postural and structural misalignment of the natural functioning of the body. Correcting these patterns of misuse was key to resolving her pain problems. Kathy was able to identify and correct her own patterns of misuse, which was key to resolving her chronic pain. During the progression of training she was able to resume her active lifestyle.
Kathy’s passion for this practice led her to Toronto to train with Nehemia Cohen, the creator of the Mitzvah Technique.
In June 1997, after three years of extensive training, she became a certified teacher as taught by Amelia Itcush. Kathy and Carla Marie Powers were Ameila’s first certified teachers in the Mitzvah Technique and the Itcush Method. Since becoming certified Kathy committed herself to continuous disciplined training with Amelia to refine and upgrade the work.
