Welcome to Restore beyond the Purple Door. I’m Kate, a massage therapist based in Darwen, Lancashire.
In this little haven, nestled under the bows of a beautiful Sycamore tree at the top of my garden, I hold a safe and welcoming space where you are invited to leave your stresses and tension behind, be still, restored and reconnect to you body.
I’ve been a massage therapist since 2016 and have a wealth of learning under my belt to help you to release the tension you’re holding. I understand that trans bodies have additional considerations from issues caused by binding, pelvis tilting and holding onto trauma.
Massage is a positive, safe and compassionate form of touch which is so important for us to thrive. The thought that anyone would miss out on this because they don’t feel comfortable with their body or for fear of their reception by others is simply heart breaking to me. Trans & non-binary people need massage just as much as every one else if not more.
I offer a safe space where you will be listened to and respected.
Your treatment really is your own, I will always work within your comfort level, this starts with a consultation where we will talk about where you feel you are holding tension, what you would like working on, also any areas you don’t want to be touched. When it comes to your massage it’s totally up to you how much you wish to disrobe, I’m happy to work over bindings, we will work together to give you the best experience and have you leaving feeling nurtured and relaxed.
I work with lots of chronic issues in my therapy room such as Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Back/shoulder/neck/
leg/hip/foot/arm pain, Headaches etc.
I’m very body positive, and welcome you and your body to share my healing space. I welcome your scars, I welcome you.
