Craniosacral Therapy

Katsura has a natural ability to engage with the cranio-sacral process.   – CCST

Katsura has something very clear to offer in her approach to holding space and connecting directly with a person.   – R.S.

After my treatment, I have felt so relaxed and more in touch with my body. Not just in a spiritual way but also physically. I would very much recommend Katsura if you have a long standing injury that needs extra encouragement to finally heal.   – H.C.

Having not tried Craniosacral Therapy before, I didn’t know what to expect. Since Katsura has been my Pilates 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 underlying 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.   – S.P.

Thank you Katsura for my treatment on the 5th of July, I had great problems with my eyes having had laser treatment at Moorfields to stop the high pressure in my eyes and to slow down the onset of glaucoma which is hereditary within my family. You were able to calm my eyes and I was able to see clearer without haziness and focus without straining for at least one and a half hours after the treatment. Sadly the haziness returned but my eyes felt rested and I was relaxed and I had a good night sleep! And yes I was able to see colours when I shut my eye’s, Thank you. – A.S.

A Craniosacral session with Katsura was a gentle breeze to my body’s healing process. I simply laid down on my back, and my body welcomed her gentle touch and witness of my responses. My mind felt very relaxed. After the session, I felt lighter and more connected to my body. It is a very gentle and relaxing form of therapy that helps your natural healing process. I recommend anybody to go and experience it for themselves! Thank you Katsura. – S.O.

I have regular Craniosacral treatments with Katsura and they always benefit me so much. Afterwards, I feel lighter, more connected and well balanced for the week ahead. She is very intuitive with her touch, and will often find the problem areas to focus on without me even mentioning them. I would definitely recommend her! – S.B.

Somatic Movement Therapy

Katsura’s sessions have really helped my body, feeling much looser in hips and general movement. Also always balanced me on other levels. It is really beyond words how much you have helped, supported and encouraged me through this challenging period of my life. It has been a light during dark times. I so appreciate your generous care and patience and I am so thankful you came into my life to help me. I knew right from the start that your insight, experience and intuition were exactly right for me. I thank you with all my heart. – P.J.


I began Pilates as part of my rehabilitation from some serious surgery on my stomach and has been an invalid for a couple of years. Katsura was incredibly careful and sensitive to my condition and yet has been very successful in pushing me onwards. Her teaching has been fundamental in supporting a programme of general rehabilitation which has successfully restored me to fitness and full-time work. I owe Katsura a huge amount and count my meeting her as a hugely important event in my life.   – G.W.

Katsura approached the problems (lower back pain & frozen shoulders) in a very professional, methodical as well as creative way. Pilates has fixed, as well as balanced, my body to a new level well beyond the initial ‘damage repairs’ sought. It formed the platform for many other activities including my hobby, sailing.   – T.K.

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.   – L.P.

After I gave 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 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.   – M.S.

3 weeks ago, I was like ‘-‘ this (horizontal). Now I am like ‘|’ this (vertical). – L.M.
