You’ve tried everything but still feel stressed and those pains and aches persist.  You don’t know where else to turn. Today, we talk to Katrin Jonas about her ‘BodyWareness’ therapy – a unique approach to body and being that helps get to the root of the problem inside and out.

Tell us a little about yourself.

 

Katrin 1I am an internationally working and London-based Holistic Therapist, Feldenkrais Practitioner and Meditation Mentor from Germany specialising in tailor-made stress management, relaxation methods, awareness and movement meditation techniques. I have been working for more than 15 years with clients from various walks of life. I call what I do “BodyWareness” because, from my perspective, when it comes to health and well-being, awareness of one’s body is the key for any long-lasting change.

Tell us more about your new venue.

Since 2015, I have been working as a therapist with TreatNow where I offer a variety of ‘BodyWareness’ treatments in the beautiful venue of 58 South Molton Street, London Mayfair. I am now delighted to announce a further venue for treatments and sessions and will be able to work with clients at the Evolve Wellness Centre, located in charming South Kensington.

What’s  the Evolve Wellness Centre like?

This centre is a very tranquil place where yoga and pilates classes, innovative workshops or courses for self-experience and meditation are being held. On the basis of a holistic approach, people are inspired to create a healthy work/life balance and grow, heal and evolve within a like-minded community.

What Treatments and Sessions do you offer at Evolve?

My portfolio at the Evolve Wellness Centre includes a variety of treatments that stimulate the body to calm down and to re-connect with the inner healing force via a focused stimulation of the nervous system. The effects on health conditions, stress-related disorders, aches and long-term pain can be tremendous. Yet, my treatments are not only suitable for people who feel unwell with their bodies. They are a wonderful opportunity to give my clients a precious “time out” to recharge, unwind and be in inner harmony with their bodies and themselves.Katrin 3

What can we expect?

‘BodyWareness’ BASICS: A Feldenkrais Treatment in “Functional Integration”Katrin 2

By using a clear, yet respectful touch and mostly minimal movements of skeleton and muscles, it is possible to reach a state of deep relaxation, well-being and awareness of your body and yourself. During a session, you remain fully clothed and make yourself comfortable on a treatment table while you follow the gentle touch applied. Natural impulses will stimulate your brain to reorganise itself towards an inner state of balance and peace. In a nutshell, all you have to do is tune into your inner self.

Duration: 1 or 1.5 hrs. 1:1

Sessions in body-oriented Meditation

Promoting relaxed awareness, authenticity and inner contentment, meditation is an essential tool for everyday life to deal with stress, challenges and the constantly changing environment of today’s world. In this session, you will be introduced to a variety of body-oriented awareness and meditation techniques figuring out which kind of method suits you best and is best in tune with your body’s constitution. Please remember that meditating does not necessarily mean to sitting and brooding for hours. It can be joyful and alive; and in utter harmony with your body’s needs.

Each client receives my book on body-oriented meditation Meditation: Body Bliss & Inner Glow which has just been published.

Duration: 50 min or 75 min.

The Energy Treat: Reflexology (exclusively for Evolve)

It is a hands-on treatment that uses finger pressure to various reflex zones on the soles and back of the feet. These zones are connected to specific organs and body areas via the nerve-pathways. Blocked energy channels (meridians) throughout the body become stimulated and freed. Both the immune system as well as the self-healing power of the body are getting a boost.Katrin 4

A series of six Chinese foot reflexology treatments can be booked as a Intensive Detox Programme  that improves circulation and lymphatic flow. This package of six treatments is deeply cleansing, can energise the whole metabolism and leads to inner renewal and well-being.

Duration: 1 or 1.5 hrs.

All treatments can be booked via TreatNow.

Thanks very much Katrina, even talking to you makes me feel calm and serene, I can’t wait to try a treatment!

March has been an unusual month, I was utterly defeated by the viral chest bug from hell for the first two weeks of the month.   From my facebook feed it seems like most of London was too.  I recovered just in time for an incredible week of birthday treats and then had an amazing ski trip with friends and family.  There will be more of this later in the month.

In the meantime one of our new partners Beauchamp Footcare have just released a timely blog about post ski footcare which could not be more appropriate for me.  Take a look here to find out how to look after your feet when you get home from the slopes.

LFW Retrospective Review – Why We Want To Escape Into An Old School World Of Glamour

Find & book who’s near who’s good and who’s available NOW!

Find & book who’s near who’s good and who’s available NOW!

London Fashion Week has passed by in a blur of colour, glittery hair, pointy heels and old school glamour.  It feels a bit like a mixture of the 1930’s combined with the early 1980’s.  As in both of those periods,  the world is uncertain and scary at the moment, the news is full of terror, war and financial meltdown.  So where better to escape into a fairytale fantasy world full of wonder and pretty shiny things.  If you can’t make the world look better, then concentrate on making the micro world around you look and feel better.  Even stilettos are back for goodness sake!

These are some of my favourite things:

I may be buying this for my birthday party next month

The Alexander McQueen world was  a sumptious, joyous, gorgeous place to be.

I particularly loved the jewelled hair adornments.

Christopher Kane even put wings on our feet, strictly car to bar!

I rather like these too, strappy and a bit chunky

For me this picture from Mary Katranzou sums up the wonderful exuberance and explosion of colour for LFW 2016

And who wouldn’t want one of Victoria Beckham’s stylish and colourful collection. I know I do!

So to look the best you can this season, you will be needing to have a regular pedicure to keep your feet in tiptop condition.  Regular massages to help your back deal with the stresses on your body caused by regular heel wearing and facials to keep your skin crystal clear and glowing.  These sumptuous looks work better with stripped back make up, eyes or lips not both!  Also get your hair dressed properly for special occasions.

Pedicure

Massage

Facial

Hair

You can book them all with TreatNOW the only last minute service dedicated to luxury.

Valentine’s Weekend Survival Guide…

Find & book who’s near who’s good and who’s available NOW!

Well, like it or not, it’s here.  My social media feeds are full of loved-up couples sharing romantic weekend plans, middle-aged couples planning on staying in and not making a big deal of it, (But who will be livid if there is no breakfast in bed) and annoyed single friends, who could do without being reminded they are single, thank you very much!

There is abject horror from some that, as Valentine’s Day is on a Sunday, it means that the festival of love and commerce has morphed into a WHOLE weekend of expense and expectation.

IMG_20160213_150759

The last time Valentine’s day fell on a Sunday was in 2010 when social media hadn’t hit the masses in quite the same way as now. Today, everything is amplified; whether it be Twitter, FB, Instagram, Snapchat, Pintrest or whatever your favourite channels are.  There’s simply no escaping it.

So, in that case, you may as well make the most of it. Eat chocolate, drink fizzy wine and make yourself feel nice just for the sake of feeling nice.  Whether you are going for all the schmalz in a big way and diving into a romantic weekend, having a quiet night or two in, partying with friends to forget all about it, watching back to back boxsets on Netflix, or something in between – why don’t you make it a weekend about loving yourself and treating yourself? Remember, we are here to look after you! If you fancy a spontaneous facial, massage, wet-shave or new hairdo, then try booking with us.  You’ll only get really good, high quality professionals, who have been vetted by us and our friends.

Here’s a selection of what some of our salons and therapists have been up to:

We wish you a good weekend, however you spend it!

I find February an odd month, the hopes of January have fell away and it feels like Spring is still far away.  It’s a good time for reflection and take some time to take really good care of your mind and your body… and that of your family.

Here’s some trusted people that will look after you and help you to feel better, Spring is getting ever closer all the time…

Here’s a video from Katie Ruane, the Harley Street Naturopath.

Here’s an in depth interview we did with her last year.

If you are looking for sports massage then here are two of my favourites:

Marina from Tiger Therapies has had a super busy start to her year,

Here’s an in-depth interview we did with her last February.

I’ve also been going to Nico and her team for years, apart from being a great sports massage they also specialise in lymphatic drainage.

For another great facial then read my review of the amazing Rishi Veda

I’m still using her custom made moisturiser and 6 months on, my skin is the best it’s every been.

I leave you with the wisdom of Terrence, hypnotherapist extraordinaire:

This is what we learnt about him and his incredible story.

Let us know who’s helping you look and feel better in February.
