The bodywork takes an integrative approach that facilitates the body’s self-healing ability to restore and heal towards optimal health on physical and emotional levels. My primary modalities are Craniosacral Therapy and VMI Bodywork.
Somatic Movement is an embodiment practice in movement that listens deeply to our personal internal bodily feeling and experience. The practice brings us some insight and healing through an integration of body, mind, emotions and spirit.
Pilates is an exercise method that balances out our bodies by releasing, mobilising, activating and lengthening the muscles with the use of breath and flowing movement with precise alignment. Body conditioning, pre/post natal, remedial.
After I gave a birth 3 years ago, I did not get very well. I suffered from aches in the back, shoulders, head, and hands, which were due to the hard work of parenting. I used to take paracetamol constantly. I was very lucky to have met Katsura. She, or her method has been healing me. She always listens to me. It helps me a lot emotionally. When I complain about a back pain, she shows me various kinds of effective movements for it, using different ways of explaining. She talks about the posture with numerous ways of explanations and images, which has made me become more bodily aware. Now, I feel much better than before.
I contracted polio as an infant which affected my entire body at the beginning, but which today has left my legs and arms very weak. I rely so much upon my upper body to stay mobile and carry out basic tasks because of the severe weakness of my legs. I truly value Katsura’s classes as Katsura is very inventive and has devised very gentle exercises I can do from the safety of my bed and swimming pool, within my limited mobility range. Katsura really understands my muscle strength. It is a challenge for me to keep mobile, but I am confident that with the support of Katsura and my physiotherapist, I will be able to slow down the effects of my polio and osteoporosis.
