"Cathy has a gift for finding the muscles that need attention, and they are often not the muscles I think are the issue. I go in barely able to stand up straight and walk out feeling loose and flexible again. She's great!"

Betty, Milwaukee

"A calm, relaxing environment for Reiki sessions. If you want a unique experience, this is the place to go. Cathy is always full of new insight and body healing techniques. Also, do not forget to try the essential oil body lotions.."

V., Franklin

"I was transported into a different universe! Amazing!"

Stephanie, Bay View

"Because of Cathy, fibromyalgia no longer rules over me. She always knows exactly what I need and customizes my massage accordingly. Her touch is pure and knowledgable. I can't imagine going to anyone else! Thank you for giving me the power, energy, and stamina I need to do the things I love!"

Colleen, Milwaukee

"Absolutely amazing. Worth every minute of the long drive to get there. We will definitely be back. Cathy is a master!"

Connie, Bayside

"Thank you so much for giving my son such a therapeutic and relaxing massage experience. We are blessed to have found you!"

Amy - Mother of a Pediatric Client, Greendale

"I willingly drive 700 miles for a massage from Cathy. She is so intuitive and not only brings technical knowledge to a session but a true desire to help people feel better and live a better life."

Sara, Atlanta, GA

"Cathy's massage is a whole mind, body, and spirit experience. While working externally on identified tight areas, somehow internally my tensions and anxiety also release…and after a few minutes in her hands, my body becomes one with her massage table. It's more apparent as to how relaxed I am when she asks me to turn over and I can hardly move…wishing that there was a pancake turner that could do the job. Specifically, Cathy helped me through a shoulder injury and surgery this year. My doctor and physical therapist were amazed with how quickly I healed, resumed mobility, and have reduced scarring due to her help. They wrote to my insurance company saying that massage was a medical necessity! Consider Pure Wellness a part of your wellness plan and take time for the best care in her very kind, fun, and amazing ways".

Susan, Bay View

"Cathy is very skilled in Reiki both as a practitioner and teacher. I have received Reiki from her and have taken Reiki Level One with her as the instructor. She is very relatable and goes out of her way to make you feel at ease and comfortable. She gets me to a level of relaxation and meditation that I have been unable to achieve by myself or through other methods. Highly recommend."

Shannon, Milwaukee


From the Blog of Pure Wellness

On February 2nd, 2008 I turned 30 and graduated from Lakeside School of Massage. It was both a great beginning and shock to a new decade for me. I wanted to help people and changed careers from doing Graphic Design and Office Management to becoming a Licensed Massage Therapist.
Our economy had just tanked as well, leading me through my first few years in the massage world with some real eye-opening experience.

On a frosty, crisp November morning 3 Pure Wellness reiki students, a reiki practitioner friend and I met at the Meta House of Milwaukee. We shuffled downstairs to the dining hall where aromas of waffles, bacon, and eggs swirled in the air around us.

As Pure Wellness has grown providing more Reiki and wellness classes, I found myself needing a specific space for those classes. I had seen this building 4 years ago when we were space hunting, but it seemed so out of reach at the time. Then my family and I moved into that area, not realizing that was that building. Then I went business space shopping at the beginning of the year and it popped up in the listings.
