“Kay is a fantastic therapist. I feel better every time I leave her sessions. She always knows exactly what I need and can put together a treatment tailored especially for me, whether I have an acute, specific problem,or just want to feel energised.”
“Kay is an experienced, empathic therapist. I feel totally confident in her abilities and have felt immediate benefits on every level, after her treatments.”
I am a certified Zero Balancer, Creative Kinesiologist, Reiki Master / Teacher and also hold a Diploma in Indian Head Massage (from the London College of Champissage) and Certificates in Tibetan Acupressure Head Massage, Ayurvedic (Yoga) Massage and Deep Massage. I recently completed Soul Retreival training with Christa Mackinnon.
Following my recovery from a serious injury I was motivated to train as a holistic therapist so that I could help others who had travelled more conventional routes without success. I chose therapies that complemented each other to offer support and ease. I work with anyone who wants to feel better and find a new way of being. That includes those who are well but also those who are in pain, structurally or emotionally or in difficulty, energetically and nutritionally.
I practice, Biodanza, Pilates and Meditation, as well as receiving all of the therapies I practice on a regular basis to ensure that I maximise my own vitality and wellbeing as well as spending time in stillness.
Reconnecting with our needs and feelings
While our other four senses (sight, hearing, smell, and taste) are located in specific parts of the body, the sense of touch is found all over, the hands are one of the most sensitive parts of our body. We move our arms to express ourselves and to manipulate the outer world. They are particularly human limbs since most other animals use their fore limbs primarily for getting around. We see the world in these five different ways; these are five ways of feeling. Touch is the simplest fundamental basis of our awareness of being alive. We are “touched” in our hearts by many things – a rose, a sunset, a new born baby, or love, for example. A blind person uses touch to ‘see’ the face of another person. We have all touched a loved one with a caress, a subtle squeeze of the hand or a gentle stroke. It is by touch that intention is relayed.
We are not as a whole a very ‘touchy feely’ sort of nation and for many touch is missing from their lives-those who live alone for instance. Many people have experienced ‘unsafe’ touch in the form of abuse. So the quality of touch used by a therapist is really important. Touch is essential to the way we establish trust between the giver and receiver. Only when trust is present can we really let-go and reconnect to our own feelings and needs of the body, mind and spirit.
Touch has a great healing power it brings huge benefits and value to the healing process. As in the Deepak Chopra quote below I see myself as an Alchemist.
‘The word ‘alchemy’ is a code word. It stands for turning human beings into gold, turning our base qualities of fear, ignorance, hatred & shame into love and fulfillment. So a teacher who can teach you how to turn yourself into a free, loving person is an alchemist, and always has been.’
