Cathy Alderson

I am passionate about the benefits of Massage and all healing therapies

Cathy Alderson

I first became interested in Massage and Natural Health whilst living in New Zealand and studied with a Naturopath where I qualified in Therapeutic Massage. On returning to this country in 1992, I studied at The Raworth Centre, a college for Sports Therapy and Natural Medicine, where I gained Internationally recognized certificates in Anatomy, Physiology & Massage, Gym Instruction and Diet & Nutrition.

I studied sports massage and in 1993 I continued my training with a well respected Osteopath and body worker, Mario-Paul Cassar DO, ND, who founded the APNT. I also attended several of Marios Bodywork Workshops in MET, NMT and Trigger Points and Sports Massage. I then started working at The Sanctuary, in Covent Garden, where several celebrities became regular clients.

I now run a successful private practise in Brighton and have gained a wealth of experience from massaging so many different people, having worked in natural therapy centres and health clinics, festivals, corporate events and also in old peoples homes and at The Royal Sussex County Hospital.

I am passionate about the benefits of Massage and all healing therapies. I have an extended knowledge of advanced massage and am keen to pass on the experience and knowledge that I have gained along my journey in the field of Natural Health.

The reason why I wanted to work for Gateway is because I found their courses to be informative, concise, professional yet fun. I think as an existing therapist one doesnt need to do lengthy courses anymore, but study the new principles and have tutors who are passionate and enthusiastic about what they teach. I think it is really important that the courses are all registered or accredited with the FHT, CMA,GHT,GPBT and Embody to maintain a high standard across the board.

I have attended several courses with Gateway and found them invaluable to my Massage practice by offering a wider spectrum of therapies. Also Gateway have informative and self explanitory manuals to refer back to whenever needed.
