Hi – I'm Kate Krauss, Licensed Massage Therapist and owner of Revivify Massage Therapy. I know from personal experience that when stress, anxiety, or feeling overwhelmed is felt, it is challenging to prioritize a self-care journey. My mission is to help you break the cycle of putting yourself last. When we choose to take care of ourselves, we begin to live authentically.
I am a mom to 3 unique and fun young adults and one teenager, I'm in my second marriage with a blended family and have gone through significant losses throughout my life. I have lived firsthand what stress and anxiety are like, and I know they can be challenging at times. In 2017, I began unraveling all the stress, anxiety, and trauma I've endured. It was when the healing started, and I learned as much as possible about my mind and body and how they function; I became self-aware to be an integrity-filled and a calm, safe person for others.
I'm a former Child Welfare (Adoption Specialist) worker of 10 years for children in the foster care system. I worked with various family dynamics, the court systems, Michigan counties, State policies, mental health professionals, medical staff, police, and teachers - all of which carry over to the massage therapy practice. While in the field, I listened and heard what was being said by almost everyone: humans are physically and emotionally burned out with no end in sight. I responded.
I found massage therapy to be so powerful that I left my career to enroll in Aveda, Douglas J. Institute in East Lansing so that I could help others manage their anxiety and pain. In September 2021, I opened Revivify's door to begin massage therapy.
I understand the stress and anxiety you may be experiencing. I also know how important it is for you to take care of yourself and get to know your mind-body to increase your capacity for self-awareness.
In my free time, I enjoy walking, sitting outside watching the wildlife, being with my kids, going out with my partner, Don, reading, painting, working on home projects, or putting together a puzzle.
I love talking with new clients and learning where they are. I want to assist in creating a safe space that makes your life easier and more manageable. I look forward to connecting with you!
