Hi, I’m Cate. In my 15 years as a practicing therapist, I’ve come to realise that the body will heal itself given a safe and nurturing environment. And further, not only can and does the body heal itself, but if the self-healing mechanism has become rusty or faulty in any way, it can be re-set. Many therapies stimulate the body’s innate healing mechanism. I like to think that I do that through all of my treatments, while knowing that reflexology and Reiki definitely do activate this. I started out as a student of Reiki and quickly added body therapies when I realised that they were more accessible at the time. I have almost come full circle and will be focusing more on the healing aspect of my work, rather than individual mechanistic massages. I invite you to view my qualifications in the gallery, and book a session. As I tune in to what needs to happen in the treatment, it unfolds and becomes an organic flow of niggles relieved and wellbeing increased.
I work as a mobile therapist, and from a therapy room. I have experience in a wide range of settings and roles. Two career highlights are massaging for an exclusive game lodge in Northern Namibia, and massaging for a dive lodge that occupied a Mozambican island. I work a lot with long term/ deep seated problems and have experience with cancer sufferers, ladies struggling to fall pregnant, and difficult pregnancies. I am also good with the terminally ill, and children. Please see the family package in the ‘process work’ section.
In my spare time I like to walk in nature, especially on the beach at sunset, spend time with my loved ones, and stay healthy via a variety of yoga, pilates, qi gong, swimming and rebounding. I support an animal rescue centre and attend a reforestation festival each year. I like to build labyrinths and am trying to grow a veggie garden.
