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.
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.
Having not tried Craniosacral Therapy before, I didn’t know what to expect. Since Katsura has been my Pilate instructor for several years, I know I can trust her. Treatment sessions with Katsura were surreal, but calming experience. After each session, I felt better. I now have an under laying happiness that I have never felt before. Katsura has this rare gift of understanding and feeling without your explanation, which is quite extraordinary. I will definitely recommend her treatments if you are not feeling quite yourself.
