Many people ask how I got into the work that I do. The answer began in my own journey for healing and growth, as well as an inquisitive mind in regards to the relationship between the soul, mind, and body.

They say that once we begin asking questions, the universe will begin to guide us toward answers.

As with many things that give us joy and awaken our hearts, the natural tendency is to want to share that gift with others. After much dedicated self-work and study, I am grateful and honored to serve others with these offerings to help and heal others.

I aspire to do all this work in service. My Guru from India, or spiritual teacher of Bhakti yoga, has encouraged and gave blessings on this path, to pass on the teachings of yoga from the Bhagavad Gita and other scriptures. I aspire to carry out his encouragement in the highest way I can as souls are open and willing.

REVIEWS

"I am in a school program that keeps me working on the computer for 10 hours a day, with very little time for exercise or self care. I woke up two mornings ago barely able to move my neck due to pain and stiffness, so I finally caved and got a massage. A friend referred me to Kaitlin, and it was honestly the best massage I've ever had. She instantly knew what my trouble areas were and what to do to help my pain and stiffness. At the end of the massage, I could move my neck better than I've been able to move it in months. It was a huge relief of so much tension, and I feel like a new person! Kaitlin was also just so super nice and cool, and she gave me a bunch of tips for better sleep hygiene and relieving my pain and stiffness in general. 10/10 - It was such a pleasure getting a massage from her, I can't wait for the next one!"

"Just received an amazing Thai massage from Kaitlin. She is knowledgeable about muscle and body systems and incredibly strong. Her treatment not only addressed the issues I brought up with her, but also some areas that she found intuitively that needed attention. I left feeling less stressed, more limber, and more energized. Highly recommend!"

"I've visited pretty much every massage practice in Renton and I was in the market for a new one. I found Sattva on Yelp and Inm was curious to check it out. Don't be intimidated by the location, it's actually pitch perfect, very relaxing and beautiful inside. The massage was perfect! She gave a moderate deep massage which is my preference, and I felt like a new person when I left. I was so relaxed I went straight to bed at 6 pm and when I woke up, I had limitless energy that I haven't felt in a long time. Please support her and her budding practice! I was so impressed I booked my next massage as soon as I left and that's something I've never done in all my years of being a self-professed massage connoisseur."

"I've had multiple therapeutic Thai yoga massage sessions with Kaitlin at Sattva Healing Arts. The combination of movement, with her intuitive focus on specific distressed areas, is very effective. I found the studio space to be very conducive to a deeply relaxing, healing experience. My back pain went away after my first visit, which was not surprising given that I had heard she helps with auto accident recovery. I really like the fact that I can easily book sessions on the website, fill out my intake form online IN ADVANCE, use my insurance and support a local small business. I've worked in a world class wellness center and have had hundreds of massages, so I'm very grateful that I've finally discovered such an experienced practitioner in the Seattle area. Kaitlin has proven to be friendly, professional and easy to communicate with. Highly recommended."

"If you need a massage, you must go to Kaitlin! I was visiting in the Seattle area and was up the whole night due to severe upper back pain. I went online (at about 3 a.m.) to find a massage place that was open on Sundays. I found Sattva, called the next morning, and she scheduled me an appointment for that afternoon. I have to warn you, the neighborhood looks a bit sketchy at first, especially since the studio is behind/under an apartment complex, but I actually ran in to super nice people out there! The studio is cozy, classy, and zen all at the same time. Kaitlin was super friendly. Her massage was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! She dug so deeply into each of my muscles that was hurting. She found every knot and worked through it gently and firmly. I've gotten many massages at many places...they always feel good but my muscles would still hurt shortly after. When I left Sattva, I couldn't even feel my upper back muscles because there was no pain! Now, 24 hours later I still have no pain. She really worked out those knots! Oh, and another great part? She actually massages you for the full hour! Not like those places that only actually massage you for 45-50 minutes but charge you for an hour. I seriously cannot say anything bad about the experience! Can't wait to come back to Seattle so I can schedule another massage!"

"Kaitlin's Swedish massage was fantastic. Before our session she asked me about the areas that bother me and focused on those areas during the massage session. I suffer from tight shoulders and neck due to sitting at my desk at work. Kaitlin's massage technique, right pressure and moves released the tension from my neck and shoulders. I had a great night sleep and felt refreshed the next day. 

The studio is decorated fabulously too. Overall a very good experience and I can't wait to try Thai massage with Kaitlin."

"Yoga with Kaitlin provides me and my busy mind with the luxury of experiencing easy detachment. Of course, I enjoy her gentle instruction technique, as she guides us to deepen our poses. Of course, I appreciate the physical benefits of becoming stronger and more flexible. But I keep returning to Yoga practice with Kaitlin, several times, each week, because of her skill in guiding me to achieve a New Cycle of Wellness which is very personal and tangible - after each session. This is the Joy of practicing Yoga with Kaitlin."

"I was in an auto accident this summer, my body was in so much pain daily. The relief I was able to get because I made the right decision for my deep tissue massages, just her ability to help my body continue healing but also her professional approach. Her knowledge of the body as well as being able to explain the reason behind some of the pain. The studio is very therapeutic, easy to locate, and very safe which makes it relaxing. Very flexible with scheduling and the professional care this lady displays is magnificent. Her healing power is special, definitely would recommend this business to anyone and everyone."

"I love getting work done by Kaitlin. She has been treating me for a couple of years and with positive results. 

 

She has used massage on me to release general pain (including sciatica) and Injuries caused by an accident. 

 

Reiki is a great treatment for me; it’s my preferred treatment right now. She has great skills in focusing her healing energy. During these sessions, I feel like healing energies channel in the room...contributing positively to the treatment.

 

I see Kaitlin regularly at her peaceful and quiet studio in Renton."

"Kaitlin was prompt with setting up the appointment and helpful with the intake form reminders. On the day of, I was running late b/c I was lost. She was patient and didn't rush me during intake (it was also her last appointment). She understood my needs and made me feel comfortable so I just naturally wanted to share with her what was going on in my body and my life that needed help with. Her treatment room in the Skyway location was very clean and aesthetically pleasing. She worked on the exact areas I needed releasing in and provided the right pressure the whole time. Afterwards, she also listened to how I felt and was very non-judgmental in her attitude and response. I felt whole and honored after her treatment and will definitely go back again."

“Seeking my first ever massage from a masseuse, I was fortunate to learn about Sattva Healing Arts on Thumbtack. Kaitlin promptly responded to my inquiry and was completely forthcoming about the price and duration of the massage she offered. It was one of the most reasonable prices I had found during a lengthy search, so I thought I'd check it out. I was given the choice of getting the massage at a studio or at Kaitlin's home. Her home was closer, so I opted for that. Upon arriving at her home, Kaitlin warmly greeted me and led me into a cozy room with a nice massage table. The ambiance and vibe in the room with quite inviting. Kaitlin was quite hospitable and allowed me to use the bathroom before the massage. I was then given the chance to privately disrobe. I opted for an hour long Swedish massage--it was fantastic!! Kaitlin asked if I had any areas of my body I wanted to focus on and she did a great job giving attention to the areas I mentioned. Kaitlin has delicate and soft, yet extremely strong hands! She perfectly applied alternating pressures, in just the right amounts. Lifting weights regularly, it felt great getting such a massage and I most certainly plan to go back to Kaitlin again for future massages. Kaitlin is very professional, down to earth, and gives a great massage at a great price! I highly recommend her services! Kaitlin is simply awesome!”

She is so pleasant and faithful to her art and to the spiritual aspect of human beings. She's quite talented. I leave massage feeling lightweight and extraordinarily refreshed, awake, and at peace.

"First of all I want to mention the convenience of Kaitlin Lindquist's location.  It’s a real hassle to park in Ballard nowadays, but her location, near the corner of 14th Ave NW and NW 54th St*. still has plenty of parking. Her studio is a reflection of her taste, and is relaxing and actually beautiful; she did it herself.

 

Kaitlin is a talented and intuitive massage therapist.  She combines several modalities to treat different types of pain.  She listened to me carefully and tailored her treatment to my needs, rather than following a set routine. Her massage technique affords a therapeutic and deeply relaxing experience. Due to an old serious injury with lasting ramifications, I've seen quite a few massage therapists, and after having sessions with Kaitlin, I have an extremely high opinion of her and recommend her without reservation."

"Kaitlin is a skillful professional who listened to me as I described an ongoing neuropathic pain problem that is amenable to relief through therapeutic massage. She took this information and it seemed like she interpreted it both mentally and through touch. She did not go through a "routine"; rather she focused on my specific distress, and helped me by the massage process and by making me mentally comfortable. Superb experience."

"A little something about Kat...she is an excellent masseuse! I've had great massages, but hers is the best. She has strong hands and an open mind and heart. She listens to her clients' needs and responds with sensitivity and understanding. After explaining my neck and shoulder discomfort, Kat concentrated on that area while balancing it with an overall body massage. I felt immediate relief that set me on a path to healing. I highly recommend her, and I urge you to communicate with her - she will adjust and address her massage according to your needs!"

"Kat has an incredible ability to be both professional and relatable at the same time. I knew the instant she put her hand on my back that she was a great massage therapist.  Some people have it, some people don't. Kat does. Her massage is as therapeutic as it is good-feeling. I sense she is aware of the subtle changes that occur in my tissue and nervous system and responds to those changes appropriately. She's a great person and is very funny/responsive to good humor. She's also a hood listener and I often feel well advised by her insights. She's one of my favorite people to see and I'm lucky to have a healer like her in my life. Thanks, Kat!"
