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.

My name is Asiarita! And here you will find that I’ve composed a bunch of words with the intention of giving you an insight to what my human experience has been like thus far and to assist in cultivating a sense of connectedness between us. For most of my life I felt some level of discontentment but never really understood why or what to do about it. Like many, I grew up with the belief that I should go to school, get a good paying job, buy a house, start a family and then, BAM! I would live happily ever after. It was from all the recurring lessons that I came to realize that, no matter how hard I tried to play that game, I simply just wasn’t built for it. Deep down I always desired a life that was more fulfilling and exciting, it’s just that I was too entangled in the expectations, opinions and beliefs of others and never really understood how to “do what’s right for me”. I had been ignoring my gut feelings and my heart’s desires for years. “Follow your heart!” and “listen to your gut!” they say… But how do you do that when you’ve relied solely on your mind to lead the way? It was in the spring of 2015 that my entire life shifted. I had experienced a traumatic event that then triggered a very intense response within my nervous system and my physical body started calling out for help. After a year and a half of ongoing physical, mental and emotional pain, tests and doctors appointments, I was finally diagnosed with an Autoimmune Disease, called Ulcerative Colitis, also known as Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). I felt a sense of relief, knowing that I no longer had to worry about “what” was going on inside of me, but now it was time to figure out “why” it was happening for me. I stayed quiet about my diagnosis because of the overwhelming amount of emotions that were coming to surface. I felt ashamed, frustrated, sad, confused, and alone. Little did I know, the mess that I found myself in, would later become my message. I was given this so-called “incurable disease” for a reason. The human body is absolutely incredible when it comes to repairing itself! It can undergo a substantial amount of stress, and STILL find ways to heal, but it can only do that for so long. Eventually its signals become stronger and the call gets louder that it’s time for you to consciously assist with your healing. It just depends on whether or not you can quiet the mind, tune in, listen, and respond accordingly. I’ve explored many techniques and therapies that can be applied on an individual basis. Our bodies are all so unique, so it’s important that we find what works best for us. Experiencing the benefits of physical and energetic healing is what drove me to get my Reiki Certification and Massage Apprenticeship. I feel it’s important that I offer what I’ve learned along the way so that I can assist others in their healing. I dove as deep as I could to get my questions answered. I took better care of my mind, body, and soul. I quit my job. I moved. I did things that made me feel alive. I made mistakes. I laughed. I cried. I connected with beautiful likeminded people. I deepened my relationship with Mother Earth. I spent time alone. I gave myself the love, attention and compassion that I always deserved. I found pieces of me that I didn’t even know were missing. We are here to love, connect, share experiences, express, reflect, and help each other heal and grow.


  • 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.
