About Catherine Strang

Catherine 2In my teens a health problem triggered an interest in nutrition as a means to healing the body; an interest in cooking led to training as a chef, both of which led to working in a vegetarian restaurant (in Edinburghs Grassmarket – Helios Fountain. Still there as a shop but sadly no longer a restaurant). As Helios Fountain was based on Rudolf Steiner principles I began to learn more about spirituality and alternative approaches to health and wellbeing.

Around this time I was attending yoga classes and introductory massage courses. This led to a certificated massage course in 1989/90, followed by a course in Holistic Aromatherapy.

During the 90’s I did my Reiki as well as a variety of other healing and energy work courses (not listed below as I do not practice them any more)

Over the past 14 years I have trained in a variety of therapeutic and healing approaches and will no doubt carry on learning more and more as it is a passion and my life!

For more about my personal and spiritual growth approach – which includes exercises and at some point free meditation/healing journey downloads – go to my blog The Five Stages of Awakening at www.catherinestrang.com.
