Hi, my name is Kathy. 

I’m originally from Yorkshire, England. I now live in Auckland, New Zealand with my husband and twin girls.


I am a Yoga and Infant Massage Instructor, Myofascial Release,MSTR® and Myo Functional Lymphatic Drainage® practitioner. I have a background in Occupational Therapy and Occupational Safety & Health.

Having a special interest in women’s health and pre & postnatal care, I was frequently having discussions with mums about their C-section scars.


Despite expressing concerns from both an emotional and physical standpoint, there was a general feeling that this was simply something they had to live with. I also suspected that scar tissue from previous injuries or surgeries was a key contributor to ongoing discomfort and inflexibility for many of my clients.


Were issues with scar tissue really something that people had to put up with?

Thankfully I discovered MTSR® to add to my toolbox. Having used MTSR® to help my clients with a range of different scars and to assist with conditions, such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Plantar Fasciitis, I’m continually amazed by how potentially life changing this technique can be.

I am genuinely impressed by the level of research, resources and support provided to practitioners, instructors, and students of MTSR®.

I look forward to seeing you in class and teaching you this gentle yet highly effective therapy.
