Through many life experiences Kassia has learned that each new stage of life comes with a certain amount stress. With this knowledge, and extensive additional education, she has developed a model of care that can assist people with many conditions and situations. Positive touch is a vital part of the human experience and Kassia is passionate about sharing her skills, both formally learned and picked up along the way, to help people. This passion lead her to create Timberline to Coastline: Pain & Stress Management so she could better meet the needs of her clients she works with as a Licensed Massage Therapist and Energy Worker.
Kassia graduated from The Utah College of Massage Therapy in 2002 and has continued her education with extended programs in Massage in Clinical Settings, CranioSacral Therapy I and II, Acupressure, Asian Medicine, Chakra Balancing, Pregnancy and Postpartum Massage, Infant Massage, Pallitatave Care, Myofascial Release Therapy, Deep Tissue/Structural Balancing, Neuromuscular Therapy/Trigger Point Therapy, and more. Kassia is a Trauma Informed Bodyworker and has done training in Trauma Release and PTSD Bodywork.

Kassia teaches at Sacred Roots Massage School of Montana at their Bozeman campus. She teaches the upper level modalities, chakra/energy work and Ethics. She is proud to work with an impressive group of therapists in a program that has superior curriculum and holds incredibly high standards for the bodywork profession.

Kassia lives in the mountains outside Bozeman, Montana with her Partner, three children, and many animals both in the home and in the barn, and her Mother too (who lives inside the house, not in the barn). She had the deep honor of caring for her grandmother in her last months of her life. This experience deeply moved her as did the birth of each of her children. Birth, the postpartum period, chronic pain conditions, emotional/physical trauma, and the time she spent with her grandmother are why she is passionate and committed to assisting others through these times as well.
She enjoys hand embroidering, weight lifting, practicing yoga, savoring good chocolate or tequila,
and spending time with good friends and dear family.
