Deep Relaxation Therapy
& Natural Healing

Relaxing, refreshing & energising.

Deep relaxation therapy is a hands-on treatment which allows the body to be guided into a relaxed state. This facilitates natural healing through the gentle transformation of physical and emotional blockages in the energy field.  This in turn improves circulation and relaxes tension allowing increased levels of oxygen, nutrition, and interstitial fluid (the body's natural "cleaning-up fluid") to reach areas which may have become deprived over time.

Sleep is the natural healing state of the body and mind, however during times of illness or stress it is often difficult to get a good night's sleep. Encouraging the body into a deeply relaxed state helps to restore normal sleep patterns, thereby promoting well-being and natural healing over time along with nutritional eating and regular excercise.

Deep Relaxation Therapy is a suitable
complimentary therapy for any condition.


... or just to enjoy some much needed "me-time".


A standard session will last between one and one-and-a-half hours and costs £30. A chat over a cuppa about your symptoms or experience will be followed by your treatment, which takes place on a reclining chair or massage couch depending on your preference and needs.


Kate will be happy to do distance healing if you are unable to visit. A form of prayer, this is suitable for anyone anywhere and love will meet your need to your highest good. Please do get in touch if you would like a distance send, and a time can be arranged for you to be still and relax for around half an hour when you can receive this. There is no charge for this, however it is possible to make a donation through this website via paypal in order that this service can continue.

A few nice words...

"I have stress, anxiety and low self esteem issues. I highly recommend Kate. The session was soothing and relaxing and delivered in such a tranquil and peaceful setting. It's helped me see things more clearly and given me a better understanding of my situation and who I am"


"I did not realise until afterwards how tense and out of balance I was. It was relaxing, refreshing and energising all at the same time"


"I approached Kate for help with a problem I was experiencing in my emotional life as I knew her to be empathic with very good insight. She listened to my difficulties non judgementally and offered options for me to follow as and when I was able. She finished the session with some hands on healing. I would recommend her to anyone dealing with emotional issues as she very cleverly unpicks the information she is given and gets to the nub of the problem before working with you on possible ways forward."


"Following healing with Kate I experienced a calmness and feeling of well being, hugely beneficial to my health."
Deep Relaxation Therapy is also greatly appreciated by horses and Kate will be very happy to spend time with your horse. It is especially beneficial to horses with nervous temperaments but is also helpful in assisting and quickening the healing of many physical ailments.
