Kate opened her first massage business in 1998 in Cambridge, New Zealand while part of the New Zealand Rowing Team bidding for a spot at the Sydney Olympic Games (2000).
Kate was a NZ rowing rep from 1992-2000 and also, while rowing training, she completed her Diploma in Sports studies. It was during this demanding training that Kate decided that Body & Massage was for her. So in 1997 she studied for her Diploma in Therapeutic Massage at the College of Natural Medicine.
She then was selected for the medical team for NZ Olympics in Athens 2004. Kate continued to travel onto many world Rowing Championships and has worked with other sports team helping athletes achieve their dreams & goals. Kate has since taken up multisport events such as the Coast to Coast and the Southern Traverse, and this has widened her understanding of the way our body operates.
Kate moved to Blenheim in 2005 for lifestyle choices and to start her own family. Being able to achieve the best results for her clients from all walks of life is what gives Kate the biggest buzz. She has continued to learn more to integrate other therapies into her clinic by completing her Pilates training, and Manual Lymphatic Drainage in 2013/2014, and by gathering a like minded group of people around her to offer a range of therapies to their clients.

Massage Therapist, Yoga & Yoga therapy instructor
I grew up in North Yorkshire, England.
I have always been passionate about exercise and movement. I
was a competitive gymnast and gained my first coaching qualification at the age
of 14, from then on I developed an interest in the human body, its functions
and capabilities. Later this developed into an interest in the functioning of
the Mind and I studied a bachelors degree in Psychology and criminology,
graduating with 1st class honours in 2015.
I always knew i wanted a career in which I could help
others. Shortly after completing my degree I decided to take a more holistic
approach to understanding and caring for people and decided to take a course in
holistic massage at a school in Central London. I fell in love with body work
and studied several massage modalities including deep tissue, hot and cold
stone therapy, remedial massage and i even completed 10 weeks of training in
traditional thai massage in Northern thailand.

Kerry hails from the UK where she did the start of her yoga training and her Honours degree in Physical Recreation. On moving here in 2006, she completed pilates training to the advanced level in 2009.
You could say she is passionate about yoga and pilates, is an understatement, she loves the difference these disciplines make in her clients lives. The most obvious change is in their strength, their flexibility and how they have become more bodily aware.
One client who takes part in iron man competitions has noticed that his back no longer aches when on his bike, and more sedentary clients love the fact they can move and feel better and they bring this into their every day lives.
Kirsty started practising Pilates in 2004 in Auckland and you could say she caught the Pilates bug good and proper. She took the plunge into teaching and qualified through Polestar Pilates in 2013.
She now teaches small groups and private classes with us at our clinic. What she loves most is helping people to reconnect with their bodies and how they start to change and improve the way they move in everyday life - with the biggest buzz being when clients tell her about the benefits they feel in themselves from practising Pilates!
