Reflexology is a holistic treatment which involves gentle pressure on the reflex points of the hands or feet which correspond to all the different parts and organs of the body. This pressure releases tension in the relevant parts of the body, it releases blockages in the vital energy pathways and brings about a state of deep relaxation.
The treatment is very relaxing and enjoyable, and can help improve a range of conditions including migraine, insomnia, PMS, digestive disorders and high blood pressure.
Kate also practises Indian Head Massage. This is a half hour treatment which does not use oils, and includes massage of the neck and shoulders and face. It is soothing and relaxing and can help calm a busy mind.
As well as working as a reflexologist, Kate also worked for many years as a mental health worker employed by Richmond Social Services. In this capacity she has undertaken a range of training including counselling skills and stress management.
