Katrina at has been working for many years to help her clients be happier and healthier. As part of her personal journey to a calmer and cleaner lifestyle, Katrina has bought together skills that can help you too.

Katrina has been a Reflexology specialist for the last 7 years. She has a Certificate IV in Reflexology, a Diploma Facial Reflexology and is a 20+ year experienced Beauty Therapist. Katrina is also trained in Cranio sacral reflexology, Aroma touch technique, Japanese Cosmo face lifting, neuro and brain facial reflexology, infertility and hormonal facial reflexology.

Reflexology is a massage therapy based on applying pressure to specific areas of the feet. As a reflexologist Katrina has trained to use this therapy to help balance the mind and body. When the body is "off" reflexology helps every gland, organ, muscle, tissue and cell to regain its natural equilibrium through stimulating the relevant pressure points, called reflexes.

Reflexology can help with stress, pain, anxiety, improve blood and lymph circulation, stimulate activity of internal organs, prevent injury, relieve pressure on legs and feet and increase energy.

Consistent with her reflexology and beauty training, Katrina is trained in Japanese Cosmolift therapy. This technique has been developed over 25 years. The procedure is performed on the face using ecological and natural products and it stimulates 21 points in the facial tissue to help with regeneration. It tones the muscles of the face, minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, leaving the face skin looking fresh and luminous for just one treatment. For the best results, a course of treatments is recommended to help maintain the effects and boost the facial muscle tone.

After many years of searching Katrina has now found a range of products she is happy to use and recommend. Book in for a Facial to experience the natural beauty range.
