Following the successful completion of both Massage and Reflexology qualifications (VTCT Level 3), Kate attended her infant massage instructors course which was led by ‘Hands on Babies’ who are, amongst others, accredited by The Royal College of Midwives.
‘’I felt that if adults were enjoying my treatments so much, I wanted to help facilitate all age groups getting benefit from regular massage. My own children both responded well to massage as babies and I found that there were many elements of the treatments I was giving to adults that were also present in baby massage. I also knew that giving a massage can bring a sense of calm to the ‘giver’ as well as the recipient so it seemed a natural choice to share this knowledge with new parents’’
Kate is also qualified to instruct Baby Yoga classes and also gained this qualification through ‘Hands on Babies’.
Kate regularly attends workshops and seminars to ensure she is constantly learning and refreshing her skills.
Kate lives in Heaton Moor with her husband Steve, her son Freddie and her daughter Nell. She enjoys family time and loves being outdoors (when the weather allows!) She is a keen cook and is always looking for different ways to ensure that she and her family live their lives in a healthy yet balanced way.
‘’ My favourite thing about being a therapist is connecting with my clients and their individual needs and often seeing improvement in their conditions. It is extremely rewarding to help bring a sense of calm and balance into the busy lives that people lead’’
