kath front page copyI have been doing massage since 2001. I am at my best when gathering talented and inspiring people around me. OPEN SKY Healing Arts Center is the place where you walk in and you are transformed to a place of relaxation, slower pace, quietness, beautiful treatment rooms and soft music.

The stars and moon have always been important symbols for me. Ever since I was a child and continuing today, I love the feeling of gazing up. It gives me a free feeling that life is bigger than any one moment. Gazing at the moon and its cycles brings me an inner calm; everything in life is in a cycle – life, relationships, good times and challenging times. Gazing up keeps me in balance. It gives me the belief that I am a part of something bigger, a bigger spirit that connects all of us.

OPEN SKY does about 80 massages per week, we have the most talented and professional massage therapist in the North Country. Many of our clients say we are “world class” and they receive the best massages here.

“A great year end luncheon on Jan 29, 2015 at Jeb’s Restaurant in Lowville. These therapist work hard to educate about wellness and provide massage therapy services to this authentic hard working community. I love sharing a meal with them, laughing and taking time to celebrate their talents!” Thank you all for all you do! -Kathleen
