Kate Balen

Registered Massage Therapist


Kate is a graduate of the Vancouver College Registered Massage Therapy program.

Kate started her career at True Conditioning as a Personal Trainer and group fitness instructor. When True Physio Pilates opened, Kate fell in love with the collaboration between trainers, physios and massage therapists and saw her clients thrive with this multidisciplinary approach. With a growing interest in the rehabilitative side of personal training and a desire to be a lifelong learner Kate decided to take her education further and pursue a career in massage therapy.

As an athlete with a swimming and olympic weightlifting background Kate has always known the importance of injury prevention and recovery. In her practice, Kate hopes to be able to work with a variety of patients and create a safe space to help manage stress, anxiety, injuries, muscle imbalances, and help all those interested in health and fitness reach their full potential.

In addition to massage therapy school, Kate is also chipping away at a business management degree at BCIT, enjoys dog walks, ice cream and spending as much time outside as possible
