Kathryn Flyr is a licensed massage therapist certified by NCBTMB. She is a professional member of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA). She is the owner and operator of Red Lotus Massage Therapy in Texas.
The health journey of Kathryn Flyr began in Rotan, Honduras, in 1998. She was on the road for months and fell ill with Dengue. That's where she was introduced to holistic medicine. Her first massage was a fantastic experience. She felt like her muscles, and joint pain had disappeared.
The effects of the therapy on her lymphatic system played a crucial role in speeding up her recovery. The local islanders were concerned about her and introduced her to medicinal tea. They called it ‘fever grass,’ but she called it a ‘life-saver.’
Days passed after beginning these treatments, and she was feeling much better. When she returned to the states, her doctor was speechless. He had heard from Flyr’s mother about her illness and was very concerned about what kind of shape she would be in, but when she arrived home, her doctor was pleasantly surprised. She was fully recovered, and since had a new perspective on health and the human body.
The pool at the YWCA of Lincoln, NE, is where it all started. Teaching water aerobics was a great way to get in touch with her health. 10 classes a week had exposed her to many people who suffered from joint and muscle pain. After that, Flyr decided to enroll in the Omaha School of Massage Therapy.
Flyr’s training was a blend of western and eastern massage modalities. Hydrotherapy and spa training was intricate to her long-term outlook of health. The therapeutic value of water is what she wanted to focus on during her practice. Flyr graduated from the school in June of 2003, and she was preparing for the NCBTMB (National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork).
Completion of this exam would allow her to relocate and start the practice she had been dreaming about. San Antonio, Texas, became her home in the summer of 2003. Red Lotus Massage Therapy was founded shortly after she had settled in. Flyr is very thankful to share her knowledge of therapeutic massage, yoga, and hydrotherapy with the community in San Antonio.
