About Us

kathleengatesKathleen Gates, LMT is a NYS Licensed Massage Therapist and a graduate of the Connecticut Center for massage Therapy (1999). A strong belief in the family system has led Ms. Gates to gain certification as an Infant Massage Instructor (CIMI) through Loving Touch International Foundation, Inc.

At Bodywork Professionals, she blends massage therapy techniques with beneficial health treatments, including ear candling, aromatherapy and Spa Bodywork Treatments (Biotone Spa). Chair massage for the office or your special event is one more way she enjoys working with clients.

What our clients are saying…

I have received so many positive comments about your workshop. The parents (grandparents, too) got a lot out of your presentation. I really enjoyed being able to watch as you guided the families to interact with their children and their children calming down, totally receptive to the massage, wonderful!

I’ve gained a better understanding of my child’s emotional cues and have learned to respond appropriately. It’s a wonderful tradition that we’ve now started and a precious time I will cherish forever.

-Dania, Schenectady


The techniques I’ve learned comfort my baby and provide us with quality time, which is so hard to come by in a busy family! I know I am spending individual time with Amanda that is meaningful.
