Welcome to Holistic Ealing, set up by Kate Kotlarska BSc (Hons) MBAcC Lic.Ac.,
Dip Paed Ac, ITEC Holistic Massage. Kate offers Acupuncture and Massage treatments to children and adults for wide range of disorders.
Acupuncture works to help maintain your body's equilibrium. It involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body to regulate the flow of 'Qi', your body's vital energy. For a number of lifestyle and environmental reasons, qi can become disturbed, depleted or blocked, which can result in some symptoms of pain and illness. Acupuncture can be an effective therapy to help restore balance and promote physical and emotional harmony.
Acupuncture is suitable for children of all ages, from newborn to teenage years. They are sensitive to their surroundings and respond to any unusual conditions in their lives. New food that is hard to digest, change of school or childcare, conflicts with siblings etc. can easily cause imbalances that if unresolved can quickly develop into health problems. Acupuncture and other modalities of Chinese Medicine (moxa, cupping, tuina, guasha, acupressure) aim to resolve those imbalances and provide a smooth transition into an adult life.

The word holistic means the person as a whole. Holistic massage takes into account: physical symptoms, psychological, environmental and nutritional factors and the impact they can have on the body. It’s a massage that uses some Swedish massage techniques as well as deeper tissue massage, Thai yoga stretches, Acupressure and delicate lymphatic drainage movements.
During pregnancy a woman’s body undergoes numerous changes and is constantly adapting to the different stages and demands of pregnancy.
Massage produces many beneficial effects, both physical and psychological, and helps the body to rebalance and function more effectively.
From week 36, pregnancy makes the transition from the 3rd trimester into the pre-labour phase. The development of the baby is complete, and now the body’s energy is directed towards preparing the mother for childbirth. This is a very important time to have acupuncture treatment.
As a part of package Kate offers a teaching session for partners, to get them familiar with very useful acupressure points. She teaches them how to find points and what they can do for the woman; it is a good way to involve partner into such an amazing transition.
