"I am in my 70s and have been receiving treatment from Katrina at ProActive Massage on a monthly basis for a number of years and I credit my good physical and mental health to her excellent treatments, knowledge and advice. I have recommended her treatments to relatives and friends and they are also delighted with the results. Whether seeing her for regular maintenance of the body, or for specific injuries or ailments, you will know that you are in the capable hands of a highly competent and qualified musculoskeletal therapist."

"I suffer from a condition called osteo spondylolisthesis (the vertebrae of my back are misaligned at L5S1) and was in constant pain brought about by years of compensating for the pain through posture. I was taking opiate medication (Tramadol) to control the pain (since 1995 (ish)) and I fully expected (and was told by my doctors) that I'd be on those meds for the rest of my life.
I met Katrina through a fortuitous regular train journey while she was at college studying for her degree in Neuromuscular therapy and we talked regularly about the training she was getting. Eventually she talked me into getting therapy and although I'll admit that I was skeptical about the benefits of such treatment, I can honestly say that it was the best thing I've ever done.
Two years later and I'm free from pain and off my meds. Nothing can speak more highly of the work that Katrina does than the proof I have of being pain free. I cannot recommend Katrina highly enough and would encourage anyone who suffers from musculoskeletal pain to at least give it a try. I think you'll be amazed at the results."

"I have been receiving treatment from Katrina at ProActive Massage for the last month and she has helped me so much with my back pain not only just massaging the areas I have pain but assessing me and getting to why it is occurring in the first place. She has so much knowledge and understanding about the human body and the best hands on treatment I have ever had (and I have had a lot of massage over the years). Even though I am now not in pain and do not necessarily need massages as regularly I will be returning every few weeks."

"I highly recommend Katrina. Excellent knowledge and lovely lady. Suggests exercises to help solve the problem, working to cure you, not just book session after session for her benefit."

"I moved to Masterton from Auckland earlier in the year, and I thought I'd have trouble finding an awesome massage therapist. I was wrong, because I found Katrina and she really knows her stuff!!
I have a few chronic injuries and she helps me to manage these with ease. I have seen many therapists over the years and she is definitely one of the best I have ever seen. I have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone."

"Wow, the best treatment ever. I have had ongoing pain for the last year, with countless visits to Dr's/Physio's/Chiro's in the Wairarapa and after a few treatments with Katrina I am now able to move better than I have in years. This is so much more than just a massage, she looks at why things are happening and taught me how to help it long term with basic and easy exercises and stretches along with the amazing hands on treatment she give and great advice. For any future aches and pains Proactive Massage is the place I will go to first."
