Guest Biography

Kate Curtis began specializing in alternative methods of pain relief in the early 90’s as an addition to her professional career as a nurse and midwife. She continued her healing education, qualifying in Reflexology and then graduating with a Licentiate from The Acupuncture Foundation of Ireland College. Having completed a post graduate internship in one of the Traditional Chinese Medicine hospitals, she received a Diploma in Acupuncture from Nanjing College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, China.

She has trained extensively in different healing modalities including Qigong and Tuina qigong, Reiki, and Taichi Chuan, and also in classical acupuncture and celtic herbalism. Kate has also trained with Dr. Stanislav Grof in transpersonal psychology and Holotropic Breathwork.

Kate’s specialty lies in her ability to help a person get to the root of their pain.  Her extensive understanding of energy healing and her knowledge of western medicine, and midwifery, brings reassurance to the people coming to her for healing.  She also brings the values of empathy and integrity, and has learned to listen to silence.  Her gift lies in her intuition, which facilitates her to be able to help bring to the surface the more deep and hidden issues, thereby allowing a person to heal from the deeper core level.

Kate has in more recent years also been working with more emphasis on the psychological and spiritual aspect of the individual. This has led her to work more closely with the more ancient traditional systems of healing, incorporating different cultural philosophies, such as is found in the shamanic traditions of each country. She uses alongside the traditional Chinese medical form of acupuncture both esoteric and classical forms of acupuncture which assist the person in their quest for consciousness exploration and personal awareness.
