Meet the Practitioners at Shuswap Float & Wellness

My name is Kate Bischke, and I am the owner operator of Shuswap Float and Wellness, and the SALT Apothecary. I am an accomplished holistic facilitator, and enjoy using various types of treatment sessions to help people find their calm energy in the midst of life’s chaos. I’m definitely guilty of being straightforward, speaking my mind regardless of the company I’m in, I’m thoughtful and curious about the universe and I am always actively searching for new and holistic methods and people to add to the benefits we- including our Wonderful in-house, practitioners -already offer the community. I am proud to say the Salmon Arm area has been part of my family’s life since the early 1900s.

Osteopathy is, according to the Word Health Organization, reliiant on manual contact with techniques for assessment and treatment. It respects the relationship of body, mind and spirit in health and disease. It lays emphasis on the structural and functional integrity of the body and the body’s intrinsic tendency for self-healing. Manual Osteopathy Practitioners (DOMP) or Manual Therapists use a wide variety of therapeutic manual techniques to improve physiological function and/or support homeostasis that has been altered by somatic (body framework) dysfunction, i.e. impaired or altered function of related components of the somatic system; skeletal, arthrodial and myofascial structures; and related vascular, lymphatic, and neural elements.They use their understanding of the relationship between structure and function to optimize the body’s self-regulating, self-healing capabilities.

Welcome. My name is Vicki McKinnon and I invite you to join me on a journey that ill bring you back to the home that is your body, and the wellness that resides within. I am a practitioner of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy and Reflexology. BCST is a non-invasive healing modality that is free of any force or manipulation and aids the body on the table in rediscovering the resources it possesses and puts them to good use in restoring the natural flow of health to all parts of the body. This is an integral part of releasing any stored or held emotional or physical trauma that might be impeding the flow of health in any location. We make use of a very light and reverent touch that satisfies the desire of the body to be held in a safe and supportive way. This and the grounded presence of the practitioner aid the client in relaxing into a deep state of rest where the body can begin whatever healing is needed.

Reflexology is a natural therapeutic method based on the principle that there are reflexes in the body that correspond to other parts, glands and organs of the body. Through the application of pressure on these reflexes, reflexology can relieve tension, improve circulation and support the body’s efforts to function optimally.

1 hour session $90
Initial session may be a little longer due to acquiring health information.

I have been interested in alternative healing modalities since my early teens.  My mother was always looking for different ways to keep us all healthy and, throughout my life, I experienced first-hand how effective many of those treatments were.
Reflexology is something I just grew up doing – it was natural for me.  Energy work was the same and Reiki has allowed me to focus that work. 
I love to help folks so Zentai Wholeness is simply an extension of my life-long journey


  • I had the most wonderful experience. I got to see all the other services available then got to have my float. Its an unexplainable experience. One thing I will say is I was 100% pain-free in there and when I got out for a couple of hours. I felt completely renewed and vibrant.

  • My first float was awesome! I highly recommend it for anyone with stress or anxiety. So relaxing and restorative. I didn’t realize how much tension I was carrying until I finally gave into the power of floating ????

  • Kate’s service is amazing. The Neurospa was relaxing and de-escalating.
    The float tank is a game-changer. Ultimate relaxation brain turns off. Fell asleep at least 4 times in the hour. I’ll be doing this again very soon.
