~~Our Story ~~     

 "A lot of people ask me why the spa is called Katie's, and to answer that question I would like to share this personal story and journey with you. 
The first time I met Katie, she came into my place of business with her Mom, Dad and sister Sara. I felt this amazing bond of love and faith they had between them. Katie was the kind of person who always had a smile to give and was always will to listen. This didn't change even when she was in so much pain due to her illness. 
I will never forget the day she was about to lose her hair. I remember standing behind her thinking to myself, "Here's this beautiful girl with long blonde hair, and I'm the person who has to take that away from her".  She turned around to face me, touched my hand and said "It's okay,"  Katie was more concerned about me than she was about herself.
Because of the experience I had with Katie, I wanted to wake up the next day and be a a better person. In my heart I felt blessed that I had met an angel. It is now my personal mission and the mission of all who work at Katie's Spa to have Katie's spirit live on through each of us."

MaryAnn Nutt LMT

Hello, I am MaryAnn Nutt and a believer in Jesus Christ. I experience God continually and believe that He guides me in helping people. I received my Massage license from Flint School of Therapeutic Massage. I trained in Oncology/Hospital Massage and Lymphatic Wellness at Royal Oak Beaumont. Since 2007, I have continually been taking classes, doing case studies and knowing that every body I work on, I learn from. I consider myself a balancer, when one part of your body hurts it is connected to other muscles, meridians, tendons and so on, so to help heal you, I look for those lines.

You see, I have struggled with health issues my entire adult life. Mouth Cancer at 24 years old, an early 30’s hysterectomy and bedridden in 2010 – I’ve had enough. Nine years ago, I started making changes. While working for a Dr., I learned how food and products can affect you. This was how my slow journey to health began. I have prayed to God, the Father of Jesus Christ, to be healthy and exuberant like Caleb and Joshua were in the Bible times. They were as strong at 80 as they were 45. Truthfully, 2019 and 2020 have been 2 of the healthiest years that I ever had.

In September 2018, I purchased a Bemer - Pulse Electromagnetic Device. This increases my blood flow 29.4% in the micro vessels. This had to start very low and slow. I didn’t understand why, until I received my Gene SNP back. The Bemer gave me energy and hope, because as you know, it is about the blood +. I have a Bemer in my massage room continually for client use.

In October 2019, I received my Gene SNP DNA test results. Tests don’t guess! I have many genes that were presenting (not functioning to their best and fullest capability). A very detailed plan started and I began to eat what my body needed and take supplements that were crucial to healing me. Life Changer, Health Hope, and a specific direction to increase my mental, physical and Grandma of 9 potential! I am so much healthier already! I’ll be honest, I am now focused on exercise, working on this next step to gain strength, healthier gene’s function and the best body yet. I want to go into 57 years amazing!! And Yes, we each have a baton to carry in life that matters, are you carrying yours to its fullest?

In February 2020, I became a business owner with nutraMetrix and now give Gene SNP DNA test and help others as they need answers to their lifelong questions. My heart is so full when I am able to give a personalized book that has 48 genes tested, 61 ways, specific to a person who desires the best for themselves. EMPOWERING!!

I look forward to helping you become the best you, you can be!!

I have been a nail technician for 21 years and have loved every minute of it! It never feels like a job, it feels like I am visiting with people all day while making their hands and feet pretty! I truly do love what I do!

When I am not working you will find me at home with my husband Wayne, and my two dogs. I have two sons, Justin and Tyler, and two grandsons. My grandsons, Jude and Theo, are the apple of my eye.

Front Desk Receptionist

I happily fill the role of Receptionist here at Katie's Spa. Coming to the spa rarely seems like a job, rather a day of hanging with people I care about and assisting them with whatever they may need! I love meeting new people and welcoming them to a quiet retreat, if even for just an hour...a chance to find healing and a bit of peace.
