Female Centred Health and Wellness
Katie studied at Loughborough University, graduating in 1997 with a BSc Hons in PE & Sports Science/Social Science. She has over 20 years experience of group exercise teaching and PT, working alongside global presenter, Dean Hodgkin while teaching at Ragdale Hall Health Hydro; over 13 years experience as a Sports Therapist, and is founder of Breeze Sports Therapy; a Holistic Health & Fitness Service.
During her 11 years at C1 Chiropractic Health Centre, as a Sports Therapist, she expanded her knowledge and practice to include myofascial remedial therapy and medical acupuncture / dry needling, treating hundreds of patients for a variety of musculoskeletal pain, injury and dysfunction.
She is dedicated to the notion that in order to understand who we are, we must view our minds and bodies as deeply interconnected.
Now in her late 40's, she has personal experience of the changes that occur in the female body during the transition in to the "third age", through peri to post menopause. Blending the knowledge that her personal experience brings with her regular professional research reading, further qualifications in Women's Health for the 3rd Age (Diploma from Jenny Burrell Education), and ongoing CPD courses, Katie offers a wide range of healthcare services to support women in preparation for, and during this transformative stage of life.
Katie creates bespoke roadmaps for women to guide them on healthy lifestyle adaptations that will be supportive through the hormonal imbalance of peri- to post-menopause years; helping to reduce symptoms, increase energy and boost confidence.

She has recently created a unique female fitness brand "Mindful Motion" offering 1:1 and group Female Functional Fitness. Katie has designed and run her hugely successful female only class; 40-FY (Fortify) for the past 3 years. 40-FY is a 40minute class blending low-impact, functional strength exercises with core stability and mobility work, alongside breathwork and fascial training, to help tap in to the neurological and lymphatic systems and manage the down-regulation of stress.
She is passionate about educating all of her her clients on holistic health modalities, and aims to engage and motivate individuals to achieve their goals, and transform their lives.
It is not enough to just survive as our estrogen levels diminish and along with it, our mental and physical health.
MOVEMENT IS MEDICINE
With over 13 years experience as a Sports Therapist and as an accredited Women’s Health Specialist, I’ve worked with and taught 100’s of individuals, providing them with real solutions for their most pressing concerns regarding musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction, ‘core rehabilitation’, strength & fitness, fat loss, and freedom of movement restoration. I am passionate about the development and maintenance of physical and mental health and wellbeing, throughout all stages of life, and using soft tissue health modalities alongside movement and exercise prescription, I provide holistic treatments and programmes that are bespoke to each individual's needs, aims and objectives.
SOFT TISSUE & MOVEMENT THERAPY
Level 4 Sports Therapist
The focus of many of my treatments are the common objectives of freedom of movement and pain reduction. If not the result of a specific trauma/injury, these are often the result of dynamic postural dysfunction.
It is through the analysis of human movement, the hands on assessment of restrictions in fascia and other soft tissues, and the balance of strength and weaknesses and activation of muscles, that a truly holistic treatment can be offered.
Movement prescription combined with a variety of Sports Therapy treatment modalities; including Myofascial Release, Dry Needling & Trigger Point Therapy, Muscle Energy Techniques & Joint Mobilisations; are blended to create treatments that are as unique as the individual.
