For over 5 years I have been providing wellbeing therapies.
I became involved in this area when I had some Reiki Energy Balancing / Healing approximately 12 years ago when I was unwell and this helped me. I believe Reiki can be amazing at balancing the energies of the body and promoting a healthy state of being.
Later when studying a management degree, I learnt about the enormous toll stress is having on physical and emotional health in the workplace. I happened to have some Indian Head Massages. Practitioners provide this massage differently, some forms of this massage really helped me and I wanted to learn all about it.
When I learnt how effective a good Indian Head Massage could be at relaxing the mind and body I wanted to do it and help people. I wanted to go on to learn it from the best, and in its original form, as developed by Indian Head Massage "Guru" Narendra Mehta, who brought this therapy to the Western world in the late 70’s early 80’s. So my form of this massage is a little different to most.
Over time I came across and studied the effective therapies I now offer. I do not provide body massage. My therapies are effective against stress and tension, can help all manner of ailments and conditions, are suitable for all and are non-invasive. If you haven’t had a massage or energy balancing before please give it a go! And don’t forget the Indian Face Lift or Facial Rejuvenation massage! There are more than 40 muscles in the face and we scrunch them up continuously, this has a knock on effect to our quality of sleep, sinus congestion, headaches and so on.
I have been working from my therapy room at The Emporium shop, 85-87 High Street, Maldon CM9 5EP, as a mobile therapist in clients’ homes, offering parties, doing talks and demonstrations and working for a number of authorities and organisations as a part of staff wellbeing programmes since 2010.
Working out of a retail shop in a High Street like the Emporium is great! I love meeting all kinds of people, older, younger, male, female, people who have massage and Reiki, and people who never have. People who cannot get relief from tension related symptoms, or don’t know their symptoms can be caused by tension or are simply in need of relaxation and balance, nurturing and some “me time” or even spiritual nourishment – and it’s a wonderful feeling for me when people feel better. Please see my testimonial page and see what a some of them kindly say. My passion is to offer therapies that work to help deal with the pressures of our hectic, stressful, multi-tasking lives.
We are all unbalanced, we all put stress on our bodies. Whether that is through bad posture, emotions, poor sleep, not enough rest, lack of hydration, not breathing properly, bad habits, poor diet, ingesting chemicals and contaminants etc - our bodies tense up in response and this affects how we feel, think and behave as well as how our bodies work.
Katie's Therapies treatments offer a way to manage stress and tension - putting my clients more in control, to promote their own wellbeing and peace of mind.
