About Kathy Howard
After many years in ‘corporate America’, 1998 was my year for a big career change and whole new direction for my life. That is when I became a Nationally Certified Massage Bodywork Therapist. Everyone who knew me agreed this was the perfect choice for me.
Over the past 20 years, my continuing education classes have been many and varied. Many different modalities have interested me so I’ve tapped into numerous ones and have delved into a handful. I’ve studied Myofascial Release extensively which has enhanced my Rossiter training. Also I have studied BodyTalk and became the 1st massage therapist in Greensboro to become a Certified BodyTalk practitioner in 2004. While I incorporated many modalities into my massage practice, in 2006 I was introduced to The Rossiter System. That is when I absolutely knew I could truly help people get rid of their pain – fast!
I expanded my massage practice further when I became the first person in North Carolina to be a certified coach at the advanced level of The Rossiter System in 2006. My clients were achieving fabulous results and getting out of pain fast! These Rossiter workouts were extremely effective in ‘fixing’ my neck and back pain that I became passionate about The Rossiter System. In 2007 I became one of the first 12 Certified Rossiter Instructors in the US. I achieved that recognition after completing the requirements of teacher training with Richard Rossiter, founder and creator. In January 2010, Richard Rossiter announced I am the first Senior Rossiter Instructor which allows me to teach Unit II and certify Rossiter coaches.
I have been very physically active all of my life and have always had strong interest in health and wellness, fitness, and nutrition. I began studying yoga and Martial Arts over 40 yrs ago. I participated in physical exercise regimens at health clubs or on my own most of those years. Although I haven’t continuously practiced these disciplines, my long time exposure to them has given me much body awareness and appreciation for the amazing human body. I continue to stay active and today you will still find me walking with Jack & Pepper, working out with personal trainers, and/or training for the next 5K.
I recently took The Rossiter System to Ahmedabad, India where I trained and certified five Indian physiotherapists. While there, we demonstrated these powerful and effective pain-relieving stretching techniques to hundreds of people. It was a wonderful experience introducing this unique approach to pain relief to the Asian continent for the first time. Many doctors thanked me for bringing this modality of natural pain relief to their society.
