Kate is the founder and owner of the Katherine Mew Clinic, based in Sevenoaks, Kent. She has been an accredited practitioner for over 30 + years, specialising in sports injuries, sports massage, deep tissue massage, manipulation, acupuncture and hypnotherapy. She has a BSc Honours degree in sports, fitness and coaching, and is committed to her continued professional development to ensure she keeps abreast of new techniques and procedures. Kate has recently finished a yin yoga course, another step to ensure her patients receive the best possible treatment available.
It is no surprise Kate chose this career path because both her parents are eminent, well respected osteopaths in Kent, so it’s in her blood. Her mother also lectured at Cambridge university, so Kate began her education, albeit unconsciously, from a very early age. This strong influence has undoubtedly contributed to the wealth of knowledge and expertise she demonstrates today.
Kate has worked with everyone from 94 year old arthritis sufferers to pure strength athletes. She was selected to be part of the worlds strongest man physio team, helping world famous strength athletes Bill Kazmaier, Jamie Reeves and Ab Wolders, amongst others.
She has also been invited to treat several members of the Royal Family, Lords and Ladies procured through personal recommendation.
Kate has helped 1000’s of people to feel better and gain a more positive perspective on life. And she can help you too.
Kate’s expertise has also been called upon to help alleviate the symptoms of some more unusual conditions:
An old Viking disease where the ligaments in the fingers cause the fingers to contract to a claw. The patient concerned was experiencing stiffening of the ligaments and Kate was able to help him regain most of the mobility he lost in his hand.
The patient had a long term fear, since childhood, which caused her tremendous anxiety. Kate spent two hypnotherapy sessions with her and helped alleviate her fears and phobia. She now enjoys her kids birthdays.
A rare condition where the head cannot be lifted. The patient concerned was offered surgery where pins are screwed into the spine and skull, this would keep her head up, but give her limited mobility in her neck. The patient decided against surgery and sought Kate’s expertise. The patient, is still being helped, see testimonials, and she now lifts her head and enjoys a considerable range of motion too.
A patient preparing for a cataract operation, who due to a heart condition couldn’t go under general anaesthetic. She had an acute fear of being conscious during the operation. Kate prepared a hypnotherapy course to help her deal with her operation anxiety. The operation was successful and the patient remained relaxed and calm throughout.
