Coach Cathy's Personal Story


Countless students and clients found me over the years to help them with their musculoskeletal pain. However, when I was diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and tenosynovitis, I was stunned. “But I’m the expert!” I thought. “This can’t be happening to me!”

No longer could I ignore the signs, nor could I just hope my hands would eventually heal. They weren’t.

Late one night, when my hands felt incredibly painful and permanently damaged, desperation set in.  I knew I had to pay attention. That triggered the start to getting better. Days became consumed with research, product trial (and error) and appointments with all sorts of healthcare providers.

I developed a support team. I asked family members to take over some chores. I found an accountability partner and ally, Dr. KT Love, who whole-heartedly encouraged me. She and other health-care professionals motivated me to not only solve my own problem without surgery, but to develop a program that could inspire others.

Dr. KT Love’s Perspective


As a long-time teacher of yoga and bodywork, I know that overwork and stress takes its toll physically, emotionally and mentally. It’s my passion to help people develop practical self-care tools. I was honored when Coach Cathy asked me for help. I had known and respected her professionally and personally for years. I appreciated her vulnerability and her willingness.

As Coach Cathy found relief, she became clear that a program of motivational and fact-driven self-care would help others, too. We then united our passions to create a 12-therapy-session online Carpal Tunnel Coaching video program.

To your hand health,
Coach Cathy and Dr. KT Love
