Licensed Massage Therapist

Katy Carter, LMBT


Welcome! I’m Katy Carter, owner of Balanced Rock Therapeutic Massage! I’m glad you took the time to stop by and check out the website!

Having been a massage therapist since 2017, I am passionate about helping my clients feel they can get moving again through massage. Whether you enjoy your time at the local gym, just had your knee replaced or just rocked your last 10K, let me help take your performance to the next level.

Having worked with multiple clients with knee, hip, shoulder or other joint surgeries to powerlifters entering strongman competitions, Ironman competitors, gymnasts, swimmers and everyone in between, I can help you go the distance.

As an avid runner, I understand first hand the importance of massage. Completing four marathons, more than a dozen half marathons and many other community fun runs, I understand the power massage can have on muscle recovery, injury prevention, stress reduction and improved performance along with overall quality of life.

A graduate of the nationally recognized leader in fully integrated Eastern and Western therapeutic massage, East West Healing Arts Institute in Madison, WI, I have completed sports massage certification, professional and master’s level medical massage certification, and I am a former massage therapy instructor.

When not practicing massage, you can find me spending time with my family on our hobby farm, taking pictures, running, hiking, or traveling.
