Kate Kotlarska BSc (Hons) MBAcC Lic.Ac., Dip Paed Ac, ITEC Holistic  Massage

I am a Holistic Therapist, practising Integrated Acupuncture; Holistic & Pregnancy Massage. I completed my courses at: the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading and Richdales Institute, and hold the Licentiate in Acupuncture and International Therapy Examination Council (ITEC) certification. I am a member of  the British Acupuncture Council and CTHA (Complementary Therapists Association), which guarantees excellence in training, safe practice and professional conduct.

I am fully insured to carry holistic treatments.


I initially came to London in 2000 after completing my Masters Degree in Economy in Poland. I joined the Ealing Chiropractic Clinic team in 2002 as an office manager and started to investigate natural therapies. I had numerous treatments done by lovely therapists at the clinic. I became inspired to study manual therapies myself. After completing a course in Holistic and Pregnancy Massage, I successfully finished  Acupuncture course at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine (CICM) in Reading.

As a mother, I am amazed to see the results that acupuncture treatments had on babies and children, and I decided to expand on my knowledge in that field. I have completed a two year Diploma Paediatric Acupuncture Course with Julian Scott, author of "The Treatment of Children with Chinese Medicine". The course included a practical painless needle technique and paediatric TCM theory. I have also attanded a numerous lectures by Rebecca Avern which expanded my knowledge on the Five Elements characteristics that are expressed in children. I have also completed a Japanese Paediatric course with Stephen Birch, where I learned non insertive Japanese techniques (Shonishin), as well as Paediatric Tuina with Elisa Rossi, where I learned simple strokes that can be taught to parents to help their children.

"I have been seeing Kate for few weeks. She listens very carefully and shows a lot of empathy. I sought help for arthritis, anxiety and viral symptoms. Kate was always very professional and thorough in investigating my health issues and I felt I could open up about anything to her. I am much better and more energetic than I have felt for a long time. I also appreciated her input about health issues generally and have no hesitation in recommending her."
