Hi! I’m Kat, one of the Remedial Massage Therapists here at HANDS from HEAVEN.

I first started studying massage in 2009 after suffering a workplace spinal injury in late 2008. I spent 2010-2012 waiting for, undergoing, and recovering from an Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (plates and screws) surgery. In 2013, I was able to return to the Australian College of Natural Therapies (ACNT) to complete my Diploma of Remedial Massage.

Massage played an essential role in my being able to cope with daily life before the surgery, and to be able to return to work, study, and generally get back to living my life without being in enormous amounts of pain after the surgery. It continues to play an integral role in keeping my spine (and the rest of my body too!) in the best condition possible.

Before my injury, I had started a degree in Animal Behaviour and Physiotherapy, with the aim of working with horses once I’d graduated. However, after my spinal injury, I thought it might be best to work with clients who could say “OW!” instead of kicking me across a stable!

I believe people come to see me because I have an intimate understanding on how chronic pain and dysfunction can interfere with even the smallest tasks in everyday life, let alone in sport and at work. I prefer to give treatments that, whilst deep and firm, work gently with the body and not against it. I like to look at your body holistically – just because your lower back is sore does not necessarily mean that it is the primary problem area. Sometimes pain in one area can come from compensating for problems in another area. I’m also always happy to have a good chat and a laugh!

My aim during the treatment is to down-regulate the ‘alarm system’ in your body and help it to realise that just because your arm is sore does not necessarily mean it’s damaged or about to fall off, so the muscles can soften. Essentially, I want to move your body from a state of ‘FIGHT or FLIGHT’ to a state of calm and relaxation.

I tend not to perform a lot of clinical assessment, preferring instead to find out what’s going on through touch and ‘listening’ to the body, as well as asking questions throughout the treatment – and then putting pieces together like a puzzle. During my treatments, I use techniques such as deep tissue massage, trigger point release, myofascial release, and myofascial cupping, all underpinned with the basic relaxation massage techniques.

I have discovered over the years that the body can do a lot of the work/healing itself and oftentimes just needs a nudge in the right direction, which can be provided by a remedial massage treatment.

I am also currently studying Nutritional Medicine at ACNT – which has provided enormous insight into how nutrition can affect muscles, either negatively or positively. This study allows me to suggest foods and/or supplements that potentially may be beneficial to you and your muscular health.

I look forward to working with you to help you return your body to its most comfortable and functional state it can be!
