Gerard Fanning

Accredited Kinetic Chain Release Practitioner
Kinetic Chain Release Teacher in Training
Usui Reiki Master

Gerard has been a licensed massage therapist since 2006. Since then he has studied many different modalities including Nuad Bo-Rarn, Zero Balancing, IET and other energy techniques. In 2012, Gerard was introduced to Kinetic Chain Release, and his life was instantly changed. He became an accredited KCR Practitioner in 2013 and has devoted his studies and healing practice to KCR and bringing bodies back into balance. He is also playing a part in bringing KCR to the USA by training extensively to become the first KCR teacher in the states. Gerard also practices Connective Tissue Release (CTR), a gentle form of myofascial release. When combined with KCR it can help support the relief of most chronic and often acute pain.

KCR Kinetic Chain Release is a simple yet extremely effective system of medically recognized and approved, gentle joint mobilizations and stretches, developed by Scottish Physiotherapist Hugh Gilbert. By bringing the physical body back into balance, clients are frequently experiencing a high degree of relief and, in many cases, instant resolution from the pain and discomfort of chronic medical conditions.

Private KCR Session: $45 for 45 minutes.  KCR Session with CTR: $60 for 60 minutes

Having a healthy relationship with food supports having a healthy life. Bach Flower Essence Therapy helps us clear the interference we create for ourselves by using the vibrational remedies created by Dr. Edward Bach in the early 1900’s. By answering a series of questions designed by Dr. Bach during your consultation with Cathy, you select six remedies that address the internal growth process currently underway in your life. These remedies tune up your inner qualities so they work for you rather than against you, allowing doors to open in your life for expanded experience and expression of your true self. Reiki is a hands-on energy healing modality from Japan that can greatly reduce stress, and brings out the highest possible healing. A Reiki session is very relaxing, and helps to clear the mind of stress. Physical healing is also possible with Reiki. Unless you request otherwise, Cathy begins all of her massage sessions with five minutes of Reiki.
