"One thing that often gets overlooked when working with animals is their tendency to hide injury, so as not to draw attention from predators. This, combined with veterinary practices that over-emphasize lameness as a source and not an indicator of problems, means that horse owners can have a difficult time assessing and treating issues affecting their horses' health."
"Cat Cantor is able to go to the source of problems and engage horses in a way that allows them to drop their guard and let the healing begin. On several occasions, I have seen a wary or stoic horse who, by the second session, had his head dropped and was licking and chewing as Cat worked on him. Cat is thus able to help alleviate pain throughout the body, while also allowing the horse be more relaxed and open in general—a great asset when it comes to training, riding, or whatever else you do with your horse."

"Cat is an extremely gifted Acutonics practitioner. In just a few sessions, she has helped to relieve the stiffness my horse has been suffering from for quite some time. This, in turn, has allowed her to soften and enjoy life a great deal more. She even stood still for the farrier for the first time. Moreover, my horse loves it!"

"Cat, Thank you so much for your time, caring, and healing vibes! In the first session, Doodlebug moved around the arena often as he was unsure of the vibrations and what they would do. He let you work, was weary, and did settle down. During the second session, it was wonderful to see him stand completely still without being held, obviously enjoying himself for 50 minutes. He was zipping around the arena after you left; he was in a grand mood! We may have to change his name to Blitzbug. We noticed that he was walking with more ease the next morning. Again, many thanks to you. "

"As you can see by the picture of Finnegan and his huge yawn that he loved being worked on, in fact the effects of the Acutonics lasted three days; Finnegan was more receptive to deep touch and seemed calmer in general...in fact the next time Cat came out to treat Finnegan with Acutonics he remembered how wonderful it felt and whinnied in greeting..."

"Cat is the kind of practitioner you search for years to find, and when you do, you feel forever grateful. She consistently provides high quality, effective service, and is truly an expert in her field.
I first saw Cat after sustaining injuries in an auto accident. The work she has done on my back and shoulders over the past several years has helped me immensely, in ways other body workers were not able to help. None others compare. I think she's the best there is."

I had a herniated disk condition in my neck (c4-c5 and c5-c6) since 2007. I was spending the majority of my day on my back trying to get comfortable. Five spinal surgeons advised me to have disk removal and bone fusion to alleviate the pain.
Cathy has been an integral part of my successful search for an alternative. Through the blend of her tuning forks and massage, my back and neck muscles have loosened up and returned to a more normal state. The sound therapy helps my muscles relax and provides additional direct relief to hot spots. The result has allowed separation between vertebra and relief from severe discomfort.
Thanks to Cathy's expertise, I am able to maintain a pain free, vertical, and active status."

"If you need an amazing healing experience- Cat is the one to see! The tuning forks experience is unbelievable! Who would think that sound vibrations would heal, but in Cat's hands it works like magic!"

"After suffering with migraines 2 & 3 times a month, and dealing with the pain of an arthritic neck on a daily basis, I found Cat. I was missing work several times a month, incapacitated by pain and non-movement.
Seeing Cat on a weekly basis with her therapeutic massage and tuning forks, I am now able to enjoy a relatively pain free lifestyle. During the three years we have worked together, I can count the total number of migraines on one hand!
No longer do they come on a monthly basis. With continued massage and sound therapy, my neck almost feels normal; it does not seize up into non-movement. And, when I do have an arthritic flare up - I go see Cat.
She sets to work with her tuning forks and massage and I leave an hour later a new person. I strongly recommend all therapies that Cat performs; she is gentle, warm, and trustworthy. Feel better - go see my Cat!"
