The running naturopath
UPDATE! As of January 1st, 2019, Dr. Kathy will be seeing patients exclusively out of the Somerset Health & Wellness Centre. See contact page for new hours & availability.
Absolutely not! I do it out of my own love for the sport, not to preach. You might absolutely hate running and I will still be happy and willing to treat you!
I'm assuming it might do the same for you and perhaps that's how you found me here? Running has been a consistent and always reliable source of calming, grounding, energizing, and insight-provoking pleasure for me. I tend to use running in lieu of a car or transit in order to get around town whether it's to my clinic, grabbing groceries, getting to meetings or if I'm literally just "running" errands. I run to socialize. I run to feel good and stay fit. It's simple and accessible, almost anybody can do it, it's an environmentally-friendly way of transit and has so many other benefits, why wouldn't I run?! One of my side-passions is helping my patients find something that makes them feel the same way that I do about running!
