About Kate Hamilton
My introduction to complementary therapy came while I was working as a production journalist for a London newspaper. Although I loved the fast-paced buzz, the pressure of working to deadlines at a computer for hours was taking its toll and I began to suffer from stress, anxiety, chronic shoulder tension and insomnia. I was recommended to try reflexology for relaxation and the results were so profound, I trained as a reflexologist.
I qualified in 2003 at the London School of Reflexology and spent the next seven years doing reflexology part-time while still in my newspaper role. During that time I did courses including Indian head massage, ear candling and maternity reflexology. It soon became clear that complementary therapy was my true path, so in December 2010, I moved to Totnes to practise full-time.
Becoming familiar with the energy paths on the feet led me to Traditional Chinese Medicine, which in turn took me on my shiatsu journey. After three years of training at the Devon School of Shiatsu, I qualified as a practitioner in 2014 and now offer shiatsu for the whole body and include shiatsu techniques in my reflexology routine. In 2016, I qualified in Precision Reflexology, a subtle yet profound technique that has been a transformational addition to my practice.
My aim is for clients to leave me feeling completely relaxed and revived. When the body is free from stress and tension the vital organs and systems are able to function more effectively, leading to a natural state of equilibrium. This encourages the body to heal itself and maintain a continued state of wellbeing.
I am a member of the Association of Reflexologists, am fully insured and do regular Continued Professional Development to improve my knowledge and skills.
