Katie Lancaster is a holistic therapist based in Kesgrave.
Driven by her passion for holistic therapy and her desire for a career helping people, Katie used her lockdown to study and is already helping clients to destress and cope in what continues to be a very difficult time.
For Katie it’s a simple premise: reducing pain, increasing mobility and relieving stress to help people live with a healthy body and mind.
“Natural holistic practice is amazing for healing any physical, mental, emotional and spiritual issues of any kind and it gives excellent results,” she explains.
“I help people out of pain and stress. Sometimes this means getting into muscle trigger points to relieve long-standing problems like chronic backpain and postural related pain. Sometimes this means calming the body’s nervous system to treat insomnia or jaw pain. I believe we have to treat both the body and the mind to see meaningful changes in our pain and stress.”
Katie uses a mix of eastern and western massage and stretching techniques including holistic, sports, Thai massage, reflexology and a wide range of facial massage.
“When we are relaxed, stress-free, we are able to restore our natural ability to heal. Long-term practice of whole-body will restore the general condition of the body. It will open the energy channels, and this will allow the body to deal properly and naturally with stress and built-up toxins and cope with anxiety and depression.”
Did you know that a one-hour massage is equivalent to seven to eight hours of sleep? A massage can make you feel more alert and energised, as well and being deeply relaxing for the mind, body and spirit. Combine an hour massage with an aromatherapy oil mixed for you and your needs, and you’ll be left feeling well and truly pampered from the inside out.
Katie even offers a mobile service as many clients feel safer and more relaxed in the privacy of their own homes or in the garden on a hot day!
Though continuing to study and to expand the range of treatments on offer, Katie currents offers a wide range of treatments from specialised home-made facials using organic and locally sourced ingredients facials, to holistic full body massage to specialised aromatherapy massage, deep tissue, reflexology, manicures and pedicures, and soon to be including hot stones also a small range of beauty treatments including waxing, tinting and gel nail polish using a UV light and formaldehyde free gels.
Katie also offer bespoke treatments with a thorough consultation beforehand so people can receive their perfect treatment with the security of knowing they have picked the right treatment for them.
Regular holistic therapy is incredibly beneficial to the body and many of Katie’s clients see her regularly. Her long-term dream is to open a retreat where people can escape their day-to-day lives and spend as long as they feel necessary to reconnect with themselves and the Earth.
New customers get a 30% discount off their first treatment so they can experience the power of holistic therapy without having to worry about the price. Block treatment discounts are also available, and what could be a better gift than a voucher for a cosy treatment with Katie.
Katie works flexible hours and weekends so and is keen to stress that her treatment room is a judge free zone where everything is completely confidential.
“I feel very lucky to have been able to live and set up my very own hidden gem in the heart of Suffolk, being surrounded by beautiful scenery, like-minded open-minded people, spreading my love and passion about holistic therapy to anyone that is interested.”
Katie has received wonderful feedback and we’d like to share a small sample with you:
