Kathy Hatcher

Kathy is a 1989 graduate of Millersville University with an Associate of Science degree in Gerontology. She began her career in healthcare after moving from her hometown to the Lehigh Valley in 1990. She initially assisted Dr. Perelli with patient care in the chiropractic office for several years in the early 1990's and felt that the integration of massage therapy and chiropractic treatment in one setting was such a natural partnership that she decided to pursue additional education and earned her Massage Therapy degree from Health Options Institute in 1996. She has been providing massage therapy treatments for the past 20 years and has expanded her services during that time to include deep tissue, trigger point, chair massage, pregnancy massage, Hawaiian Lomi-Lomi massage and geriatric massage. In 2017, she expanded further to begin helping patients with cellular detoxification by adding Ionic Foot Cleanse treatments to her service offerings.
