Katie melson...

Katie's love of connecting with people and a belief in the healing power of touch gave her the inspiration to learn and practice massage, a study that she continues today.

Qualifying from the London College of Massage (LCM) with a diploma in therapeutic massage in 2011, Katie has just completed Advanced Clinical Massage Training (and other further trainings) with Jing Advanced Massage School in Brighton, and has tutored part time at the London College of Massage.

Her massage practice is informed by the integration of new skills, techniques and understanding that further learning and teaching provides; with over seven years of direct experience supporting people to live relaxed and pain free lives.

Katie welcomes you warmly and makes you feel comfortable and relaxed immediately. She truly has ‘healing hands’ and together with her professional skill and her ‘body awareness’, gives the most therapeutic treatment one could ask for

What I found most unique about Katie’s style of working is her intuitive sense in locating the root of the issue and being methodical in enabling its release

A 15 year practice of yoga informs Katie's perspective on anatomy, the energy body, and healing modalities. Hatha Yoga has been the consistent theme in her yogic pursuits, dedicating 10 years to the study of Hatha yoga and principles of Tantra with the Tara Yoga Centre, London, and later completing a teacher training with Yogi Ashokananda.

A keen cyclist, Katie has a good appreciation of the athletic spirit, and how anatomy serves to support that. Her yoga and meditation experience give her insight into the interconnected nature of life, something she celebrates through her interactions with others, and in her practice as a massage therapist.

I received the warmest of welcomes and in addition to being very professional, she made me feel very at ease. The massage room was quaint with a calming ambience and the massage itself was tailored perfectly to my requests.
