Massage Therapy & Wellness Coaching experience
Katelyn (Kate) Adamek
(Licensed Massage Therapist & Certified Wellness Coach)
After graduating in 2010, I focused my work in delivering outstanding customer service while providing high quality customized therapeutic massages. I believe most guests seek massage treatment for relief of present stressors that result in pain or discomfort. I address the current needs of the guest, and also consider past and potential stressors. I believe massage therapy helps relieve stress not only physically, but mentally and emotionally as well.
As a Certified Wellness Coach, I am always striving to help others reach their individual goals on their overall wellness; and to promote individual growth and professional development. With a good understanding of how the body functions, physically (moving), I am fascinated to see how that dimension of wellness is connected with other dimensions, for example; nutritional (eating), emotional (feeling), occupational (working), and social (relating). Each dimension of wellness is connected and can have it's effects on the body physically through every day activities, this knowledge combined with setting and achieving realistic goals can help my guests improve their overall wellness.
Mario Tricoci Spa - Massage Therapist
In 2010, I decided to start my massage therapy career at Mario Tricoci Salon and Spa. Within 2 years I became a top performer at my location by providing outstanding customer service while providing high quality customized therapeutic massages. On top of providing a variety of relaxing therapeutic massages, I also preformed spa treatments such as body scrubs, body wraps, seaweed masks and hand-applied tanning treatments. I helped train and educate new therapists on the massage protocols and traveled to other locations to train fellow therapists on new protocols the company wanted to launch. While working here I learned how to incorporate a variety of techniques together to provide a unique experience for each guest. Combining a clinical perspective with a relaxing guest experience, I enjoy helping my guests destress not only physically, but mentally and emotionally as well.
Certified Wellness Coach
I completed my certification in wellness coaching at the College of Lake County in 2014. I am always striving to help others reach their individual goals on their over all wellness; and to promote individual growth and professional development. I enjoy sharing my knowledge on physical wellness including but not limited to, self-care and body awareness.
Menner Chiropractic - Massage Therapist
As a chiropractic assistant, I provided manual therapy for patients to reduce musculoskeletal pain and disability through kneading and manipulation of muscles, joint mobilization and more. My focus was to treat soft tissue and joint structures for the purpose of modulating pain; increasing range of motion (ROM); reducing or eliminating soft tissue inflammation; inducing relaxation; improving contractile and non-contractile tissue repair, extensibility, and/or stability; facilitating movement; and improving function.
