My name is Katherine, but I love to go by the name Kat. I am the face and owner behind Kat's Got Your Back. From an early age, I have always had an interest in the human body, studying PE at A level and eventually going on to do a Sports Science degree. In 2017, I trained at Morley College in London and achieved a professional Massage Therapy Diploma, accredited by Complementary Health Professionals (CHP) and then gained my diploma in Aromatherapy. I am now a full member of CHP and have since undertaken postgraduate studies in deep tissue and pregnancy massage to further my skills and knowledge for the benefit of my clients.
In 2018, I made the brave decision to give up my retail career and become a full-time self-employed therapist. Kat's Got Your Back was born with one mission, to heal the world one back at a time! As a fully insured practitioner, I aim to help clients with their physical ailments by addressing both their mental and emotional needs. I felt this so important after suffering myself for a number of years with mental health and I have learned to never allow it to define me. I consider myself a mental health warrior with a quirky unique personality. With my expertise and knowledge, I ensure my clients are left feeling empowered and in charge of their own wellbeing.
I truly love what I do. Someone once told me, 'Find a job you love and you'll never work a day in your life again,' Kat's Got Your Back is more than just a massage service. Offering self care tips, wellbeing advice and high standard manual therapies. What's the dream? To open a safe space for young and old where learning how to take care of your mind, body and soul are a priority. I aim to continue to convey that message and to launch high quality aromatherapy products to assist you with your everyday needs. I believe that when you achieve optimum wellbeing, everything else falls into place.
Massage treatments helps us to get back into tune with our bodies and gives us the capabilities of accessing any held emotions within our bodies. It helps to improve our body systems and provide us with a better quality of life.
However, I must stress these treatments are not intended to replace conventional medical care and no claims are made to diagnose, treat or cure any illnesses or conditions. I stay committed to my professionalism and development.
Thank you for your continued support and I look forward to welcoming you to Kat's Got Your Back very soon.
