About me

My name is Kate Gowar and I practice at Brighton Reflexologies in the Fiveways area of Brighton.

I offer bespoke foot and facial reflexology treatments and in a peaceful and relaxing environment within easy reach of train stations and bus routes.

I have personally found reflexology to be a gentle and profound therapy that promotes relaxation and ease, and can be a wonderful catalyst for healing and change for the individual.

Reflexology has been shown to have significant benefits for the body and mind: Relaxation, improved circulation, and the lifting of the spirits, for example, all help to maintain a person’s wellbeing. Reflexology may also assist in pain management, as well as supporting the journey back to health after illness.

I am also a Reiki Master practitioner and a member of the UK Reiki Federation. I volunteer with Reiki Medic-Care which offers distant Reiki treatments at no cost to frontline doctors, nurses and paramedics working in acute, critical and trauma areas of medicine such as ITU and high dependency units in the UK.

Training, qualifications & experience

I come to reflexology with an accumulated wealth of experience in Bodywork. I have a professional background in dance, having worked as a performer, touring and teaching internationally for 18 years. I am also a graduate of University College London, with a BA Hons in Archaeology. I trained with Louise Keet at the London School of Reflexology.

Further information

Reflexology is a non-invasive, gentle therapy, and is suitable for all ages to maintain wellbeing and help restore the body to a balanced state of health.

Reflexology is the light manipulation of reflex points on the feet to release any energy blockages within the body and help integrate the body’s systems, whilst effecting a state of deep relaxation for the client.


  • The regulation of stress and anxiety levels in adults and children to help with mood, sleep and peacefulness
  • A healthy immune system
  • Deep relaxation and pain relief
  • An increase in energy levels

Although reflexology is not used to diagnose or cure health disorders, as a complementary therapy, reflexology can be used very effectively alongside other medical approaches.


  • Back pain
  • Asthma
  • Insomnia
  • Arthritis
  • PMS, menopause
  • Digestive disorders

During your first session, I will confidentially take a short medical history and chat with you about your health, diet and lifestyle and any presenting conditions or ailments you may have.

This typically takes about 15-20 minutes. This information allows me to make a bespoke treatment plan for you.

If you have been diagnosed with or suspect you may have a pre-existing medical condition, please consult your GP for advice before starting any new therapies.
