My name is Kate, I have been a qualified Beauty therapist for over 20 years also a Personal trainer and Pilates teacher for over 10 years and a Yoga teacher for over 4. My passion is to bring alternative health and wellness to all, I specialise in pain management and mental health.
I offer completely bespoke treatments and personal training, tailored to a client's needs with a totally holistic approach. My aim is to bring alternative therapies to all.
The best way for me to explain what I offer now is to tell you my story.
It begins 6 years ago, mother of 5 children, self employed, running my own gym, teaching over 25 classes per week, stressed, dealing with issues at home, no self care practice, thats when my body broke down.
I couldn't get out of bed, I couldn't even put my feet to the floor without immense pain, not long after I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and depression with a B12 deficiency to boot! I will be honest, I spent a few weeks just feeling sorry for myself and was on all the pain medication and anti depressants (which no one should feel bad about).
A friend and yoga teacher convinced me to try yoga, I remember my first session clearly, feeling like I wasn't good enough, in pain and by the end of the session in tears but she convinced me to try again. The more yoga and mindfulness I did the more it improved, I then began to have regular gentle massages and I got better still, I started to reduce my medication and started exercising again. I was slowly getting back to being me I couldn't believe how alternative forms of treatment could have such an impact.
It was then I decided that I wanted to help others in similar situations get the benefits of Holistic treatments.
I now build treatment plans to suit each individual, looking at the route of the issue, symptom management and maintenance.
Treatments I offer include-
- Hot stone massage
- Deep tissue massage
- Lymphatic drainage massage
- Myofascial release massage
- Aromatherapy massage
- Indian head massage
- Thai massage
- Meditation and relaxation
- Past life regression
- Holistic personal training

- Pregnancy Yoga
- Children's and teen Yoga
- And I'm currently training in CBT
