I did Katharine’s Gentle Myofascial Release workshop nearly 12 months ago and I found it to be fabulous.
I use it on mums, I use it on bub’s, in fact, I use it on everyone. It is a great skill set to have its safe, it’s gentle and it’s effective.
I would highly recommend it.

One week post GMR workshop and I have used this beautiful gentle technique every day and love it. The babies I have treated totally relax while I am talking to their mum and gently working on the baby at the same time. Thankyou Kathryn for teaching me such a useful set of skills. I encourage anyone working with mothers and babies to seize the opportunity to attend one of these workshops and incorporate GMR into their practice.

I truly believe that without Katherine’s treatment, there is no way I would be able to keep working at such a fast pace. This treatment has helped me in so many ways both physically and mentally. Thank you so much for your on-going support.

“Katharine offers a sensitive healing space that is perfect for children. My 1 year old presented as anxious and closed after numerous treatments with other practitioners, aiming to address a case of Torticollis. Katharine’s unique approach enabled my daughter to feel comfortable with the treatment, and after a very short time she thoroughly enjoyed her appointments. Her Toritcollis improved immensely and I would recommend this gentle yet effective treatment to anyone with similar structural issues.”

I had a really severe case of vertigo, which was not helped after a trip to hospital and manouvres by a doctor there. Their recommendations to flop down on either side from a sitting position did nothing, except give me a bad back! Every time I lay down my head was spinning, or when I changed position in bed, or when I bent over. A trip to Katherine completely cured me after one session. She said that I would know whether it had helped within 24 hours. When I sat up after the treatment, I felt worse than ever, but she was absolutely right – within 24 hours, the problem was gone.

My husband, who has nerve damage from a bad car accident forty years ago, has bladder problems from time to time, the worst being when he could not pass any fluid at all. He did not want to go to hospital, as the last time he did that, he got a bad bladder infection from the procedures. I suggested going to Katherine, and after nearly three days of virtually no liquid being passed, things were getting desperate. Katherine worked on him and said that if it had helped, he would know within 60 minutes. Everything began to work that day, and we are profoundly grateful to Katherine. What she did evidently cleared the nerve pathways. It saved him from catheterization, and what that might have led to — possible dependence on this method of emptying the bladder, with its accompanying problems.
— Catheterize no more!
My 14 week old grand daughter was born with a very stiff neck making it difficult for her to move her head to one side. After just one treatment from Katharine she is now able to move it freely and has had two further treatments which she just loves having. Thanks you Katharine for being so caring and gentle with her.

As a health care professional dedicating a lot of time in Women’s health I attended one of Katharine’s workshops to increase my knowledge basis for my own health needs and at the time the many mother/baby/dads I was working with on a professional level. These gentle respectful techniques have remained as one of the best tools I have in my clinical tool kit and over the years I have referred many a perplexing baby or mother for Katharine to assess and follow up. The educational foundation I received from attending this course has been a wonderful asset in providing me with options to enhance my clinical care outcomes.

I started seeing Katharine when I was 4 months into my first pregnancy. I had chronic back pain that was preventing me from being able to stand or sit for long periods of time. Within 2 treatments I was completely free of pain. Prior to using Gentle Myofascial Release Therapy I had been seeing a Chiropractor for 2 years without any relief. In my second pregnancy I had severe headaches and blurred vision, I couldn’t keep my eyes open and I had so much pressure I thought my head would explode! I saw 3 doctors all prescribing antibiotics and strong pain killers (which I wasn’t keen on taking) but did so without any relief. I went to see Katharine, hoping for some relief – without drugs. By the end of our session I was pain free. All the fluid that was in my sinus had been drained. I’d never felt so happy to feel better. I later found out that it was oedema on the brain. It is so lovely when you are pregnant to be able to see someone that heals your body with such gentle touch and no medication. It’s not only better for us; it’s a wonderful choice for our babies.

My six week old second child was very unsettled at night since birth, but after one treatment he slept through the night, and every night since that day. I was totally amazed with the gentleness of this work.
— Baby Zac’s treatment for restless sleep.
My mother booked me in for some sessions in myofascial therapy. Despite it being gentle, I felt much lighter and the intensity of the pain dulled dramatically. I found that I was able to sleep more comfortably and had more energy during the day. I would definitely recommend this therapy to new mums.

 Hi, my name is Monique. I started seeing Katharine and having GMR treatment when I was 4 months pregnant. I was suffering from severe migraines and lethargy and was seeking a non-invasive treatment. GMR gave me immense relief after the first few sessions.  During the course of the pregnancy, I received regular GMR to assist with the constant change my body was going through. I found this invaluable in the last 2 weeks of pregnancy when the baby was sitting on a nerve on my spine. I was in incredible discomfort and GMR was the only therapy that gave me any sort of relief. I was extremely fortunate to have Katharine to come and treat me during my labour. I firmly believe that this assisted in my calm birth and has contributed to the amazing chilled out baby that I have today. Both my daughter and I continue to seek treatment from Katharine. Gentle Myofascial Release therapy is helping me to regain my pre-baby body and is assisting with my daughter’s general start in life. The techniques that Katharine has taught me to use on my baby has been extremely helpful with her sleep pattern and her digestion. - Monique explaining how useful GMR has been for her pregnancy and for her new daughter's start in life.
