About Katy Lashua

I've always been intrigued with natural and holistic ways to improve health and maintain wellness; this due in part to my own health challenges from birth through childhood.

In my younger adult years I worked in various medical settings while exploring where I wanted to specialize.  These include local Asthma and Allergy Specialists, Dermatologists, and even a brief stint with OBGYN offices.

At age 40, I decided to pursue my License in Therapeutic Massage and graduated from the Sarasota School of Massage Therapy.  Katy's Therapeutic Massage and Aromatherapy was established in 2005. 

As a lifetime student, I have enjoyed educational opportunities such as earning my certifications in Aromatherapy, Neuromuscular Therapy, and Medical Massage, as well as the Full Body Human Dissection course taken with Kent Health Systems and Dr. Julian J. Dwornik at USF in Tampa, Florida. 2010

My passion for helping others live the healthiest life possible led me to pursue my training as a CRT Practitioner with Dr. William Doreste, DC, of the Cranial Release Technique, Inc. in 2010.

CRT Wellness Center of Sarasota, LLC established in 2013.

In November 2014, at the annual CRT Summit Conference, I was awarded CRT Practitioner of The Year; both humbling and such an honor!

Connecting with the experts and support teams of the Cranial Release Institute, Innate Response, Emerson Ecologics, Natural Vitality, and Institute for Integrative Nutrition keeps me on the front lines of nutritional support and ongoing education. These relationships are equipping me with the best of the best resources in the ever-growing, ever-changing world of Nutrition and Wellness!

My Nana always said, "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure".

On a more personal note, I am a child of God by His grace alone through Jesus Christ. I am also a wife and daughter...a sister, cousin, friend, and worshiper.  I love to sing at the top of my lungs, and I love to laugh!  I love to spend time with my husband, enjoy good food, good wine, and good friends. Good books, good music, good movies, horse-back-riding, walking, camping, fishing, roller coaster rides, dancing, and the beach..(not necessarily in that order)  We are blessed to live in such a beautiful town as Sarasota.  The long walks on Siesta Key are some of my favorite times. I've participated in five half marathons, and love walking the St. Armand's bridge, too.  Who knows, you may catch me training for another half marathon out there!  Enjoying our Downtown Market on a Saturday morning is another favorite... winding the morning up with breakfast and lingering with friends over coffee at a favorite place makes it even better! 
I love spending time with the Lord... reading His Word... and getting to know Him more, and more.
Life, this side of Heaven, is short. I want to "live out loud", and thank God for each day He enables me to do so. 

Thanks for stopping in... May God bless you.
Psalm 90:12,  "Teach us to number our days aright that we may gain a heart of wisdom."
