I have been taking regular private movement classes and intermittent CST sessions with Kathy for a year now and it has been a joy and a privilege. It is not easy to take on a 60 year old who has scoliosis and who does not always feel the correct alignment of a normal body as it moves and very often I come to class with chronic jaw pain, a sluggish body and emotions to match. Kathy innately understands individual bodies and designs her class to cater to uniquely build muscle in spite of the imbalance and strengthens different parts of the body. She takes the trouble to video each exercise on the phone so that one can build daily individual sequences with each session that I can practise at home and not get bored. Kathy is extremely professional, talented, has amazing knowledge of anatomy of the body and how it works but most importantly, she has the ability to encourage, motivate, be patient, empathise and heal as the need arises. All these qualities make her an exceptional pilates and movement teacher with compassion and a big heart. I am indeed fortunate to know her. I have made progress and I recommend her unreservedly.
I recently participated in the Contrast Therapy Workshop at Soma Haus. The instructor, Chun, was fantastic and gave me a better understanding of the practical benefits of breathing techniques combined with cold water exposure.
Denise is an excellent manual therapist. She understands the body and is able to quickly identify the areas that I needed most help with. I received a myofascial massage and didn't realise in the process I also learned a lot about my own body. Denise also recommended some stretches that helped to improve my overall mobility. I am so grateful.
"Kathy is a magician when it comes to identifying and treating physical pain. Her ability to direct the energy to areas of concern just by light touch is nothing short of amazing. While her main focus is alleviating physical pain, she often also finds how this pain may be related to emotional issues. She is a caring and very capable therapist. I have seen her for 4 years and I have a better life for it. I strongly recommend her if you suffer from pain or fatigue."
"Ms. Gabriel has administered cranialsacral therapy to me for the last 6 months to improve my insomnia and gastro intestinal problems and I have observed a marked improvement in both areas since we began the treatment . I recommend her work unreservedly to all patients in need of such help."
I received both Structural bodywork and Craniosacral Therapy with Kathy. Struggling with chronic back pain (from injury) and jaw tension I was unsure what to expect during my first session. She was genuine in walking me through everything and creating the safe space for me to trust and release into the healing space of the work. I was surprised to feel a difference in my body after only 3 sessions but felt motivated to explore more. I learned so much about my body in my sessions and now much better in managing my pain in my body. Deeply grateful and would like to say that if you feel the slightest bit curious about this practice then give it a shot - your body will thank you!
