“Kate is extremely personable, gentle, empathetic. Not only does she have the skills of her profession to make changes, she demonstrates a subtle observation of how the body is presenting itself and has the ability to communicate it.”
“Kate’s caring manner is assured to put anyone at their ease, I feel privileged that I had the good fortune to experience the talents of her as a Rolfer® and her considerable personal attributes. ”
“I was skeptical at the beginning of receiving Rolfing® sessions, I hadn’t heard much about it and I didn’t understand how it differed from other forms of therapy. I found the work that I received was profound in aiding my recovery from cycling and climbing injuries. Its made me more aware of how my body is integrated as a whole, and I’ve quickly seen how it can positively impact my sport but also my day to day life too.”
“My standing posture has improved and my movement has became more fluid…I am now more aware of how I move and I am equipped with reminders from the sessions about how to maintain a better posture. “
“[Kate] informed me the area of the body we would be concentrating on in each session. She asked me to describe how it felt walking, standing, sitting. I was intrigued by her incisive observation of how I moved which echoed precisely how it felt to me.”
“The techniques she used to realign and create space in different parts of my body were sometimes powerful but never at all painful.”
