Kate qualified as a physiotherapist in 1989 so has many years of experience to draw on. She has worked at the Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases, at Frome Victoria Hospital treating the elderly and in the physiotherapy department where she developed her interest in women’s health. More recently she has been working at CircleBath Hospital involved in setting up their women’s health and hydrotherapy services, and at Chippenham Community Hospital running the women’s health and continence service.
Kate is also an advisor on the Bladder and Bowel Foundation charity helpline.
She sees women with a range of gynaecological conditions and obstetric patients with pelvic girdle pain and muscle rehabilitation needs. Her approach is functional, practical and focused on meeting the patient’s treatment needs, enabling the patient to feel informed and empowered during recovery.
Kate enjoys cycling and running so you may see her out and about around Melksham. She is a member of a women’s cricket team and sings in a Capella group. At home she is kept busy with her family and chickens.
If you would like to book an appointment with Kate please call 01225 704883 or you can chat to her first on 07722299851.
May 9 2015 2.30pm FREE talk on Reflexology and Subfertility
Reflexologist, Karen Newton, will be offering her insights and expertise in a free talk about fertility issues. Karen is a member of the Association of Reproductive Reflexologists (ARR) and has over 25 years’ experience in reflexology.
At least 25% of UK couples planning a baby have trouble conceiving and the number seems to be increasing. A study on preconceptual care and pregnancy published in 1995 showed that changes in lifestyle and diet had an 80% success rate with couples who had previously been infertile.
Optimising health is an obvious way to increase the chances of a successful conception and a good pregnancy, but it is often overlooked. Stress can have a huge negative impact on the body, with knock on effects on hormonal functions and general wellbeing.
Reflexology helps relaxation and tension, improves moods and sleep and can promote a deep sense of wellbeing.
Since 2011 the Association of Reproductive Reflexologists (ARR) has been dedicated to training and promoting reflexologists in the area of subfertility. Their main aim is to undertake clinical research into the effectiveness of reflexology in the treatment of infertility.
Come along to find out how reflexology can help you. Please phone to book as places are limited.
