PODCAST- THE RADICAL RMT
The Radical RMT is about Radical Massage Therapists and the extraordinary lifestyle we get to live in this profession. Taking you outside of the massage practice to meet authors, world explorers, performers, artists, business owners and more! The possibilities are endless and there are no excuses or limits for not creating an incredible life on your terms! I hope you enjoy listening and I hope you are inspired! If you are smarter, work harder, and want better than the average RMT, then welcome to…The Radical RMT.

"I think the idea of building something that outlasts me is pretty cool"
Kathleen has been a Registered Massage Therapist since 2016 but, before she did her certification as an RMT, she started as an Athletic Therapist in 2004! Realizing that more insurance coverage was available for massage therapy she completed her massage therapy diploma in 2 years at Algonquin college while also working as an Athletic Therapist on and off the field, raising a family, AND playing varsity rugby. She has just opened her own clinic called Return to Play Therapy which is really about getting everyone back to whatever “play” means to them. She is committed to lifelong learning and wants to provide the most diverse experience for her clients. She knows from experience that if everyone works hard, they can achieve what they want in life! On her downtime she enjoys reading and spending time with her family and she is also working her hands creatively by trying woodcarving. She ultimately wants to create something of great quality that will outlast her- I feel that she will achieve this in many ways in her life and I hope she inspires you to do the same.
