Cat Cairns (Skin Therapy)
Holistic Skin Therapist, Reiki Master, life coach
Cat is a holistic skin therapist trained in skin needling (known as Collagen Induction Therapy CIT) as well as Neil’s Yard Facial Rejuvenation massage therapy. She is also a certified Reiki Master and spiritual life coach and adds a unique layer of therapeutic energy work to all of her facial treatments as well as offers stand alone reiki healing and coaching sessions.
Her passion for holistic therapies began early in life with reiki and yoga and she’s since spent many years studying (between corporate work and becoming a mother) to qualify as a yoga teacher, reiki master, life coach, holistic skin therapist and currently studying a Masters in Counselling.
Her holistic facials, skin needling and energy work offer a more natural and loving approach to care for the largest organ of our body; our skin. And her treatments penetrate more than skin deep as she works on not just the physical body but also on the mental and energy bodies.
“I believe there are three bodies we need to acknowledge, nurture and invest in, not just one: Energetic, Physical and Mental. When we address all three and they work in synergy our lives become more harmonious and sweet.” ~ Cat Cairns

What is Micro Skin needling?
Skin needling also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), although a relatively new technology, was derived from ancient acupuncture techniques. The controlled micro injury triggers a chain reaction of events that activate the skin’s wound healing responses. By using tiny needles to penetrate the epidermal and dermal layer of the skin, this causes the skin to produce a new layer of collagen and elasticity.
Unfortunately, as we reach our 30’s, we gradually stop producing collagen (sad but true) hence the wrinkles and saggy skin. Skin needling encourages the skin to keep producing. This is a result driven treatment which comes with recovery (24 – 48 hours depending on skin but no exercise except yin yoga for 12-24 hours).
The purpose of this treatment is to aid in:
- Reduce appearance of lines and wrinkles
- Scar Treatment
- Damage incurred by the sun
- Shrinking pores
- Improving the effectiveness of topical products
- Reduction of stretch marks
- Rosacea reduction
- Reduction of Acne
What is a Holistic Facial?
This is a combination of Neil’s Yard Facial technique and holistic lymphatic massage, combining relaxation techniques with a deep tissue facial massage, and finishes with the application of active organic natural products chosen from the Neil’s yard product range and other active organic skincare brands, which will be chosen post skin consult on the day.
This treatment offers you a gentle nurturing experience for you to rest and relax, and to experience a deep calming hydration for your skin and a renewal of your energy levels.
It will start with a gentle deep cleanse, exfoliation clay or antioxidant mask followed by a hydrating mask, a hydrating décolleté and head massage and to finish this relaxing treatment organic beauty products will be chosen to suit your skin type.
Using a mixture of natural, healing, herbal and essential oil-based products, along with deep lifting techniques to ease tension accumulated in the facial muscles. Then a jade/rose quartz rollers to stimulate cell turnover and aid lymph drainage, leaving skin supple, smooth and radiant. This is then followed by the Gua sha, the Japanese face sculpting tool for maximum results.
What is Reiki & spiritual life coaching?
Reiki is a holistic energetic treatment working through the 7 chakras of the body. Reiki originated from Japan and is now worldwide helping many people with imbalances in their bodies, that might be physical or mental. It’s a hands on or off treatment working through/with the energy of the body. Reiki has also been known to help people with:
Dealing with grief
Clarity – more decisiveness
What can I expect from the treatment?
After we have had initial chat (if needed/wanted) you then relax, lie down and breath while I work through your chakras using Reiki to heal or start to shift any stagnant energy. We can also cut energetic chords, if you feel you need to cut loose from someone or a situation that is no longer serving you. Although this session is based on Reiki, I also do a card reading (not tarot cards) its seeing where you are right now (present) in your life and what I need to work on with you. I also incorporate crystals to depending on the client and their preferences. Its a healing session based around your needs and I work with you on that opening a safe and confidential space for you to open up and release.
What is Life and Spiritual Coaching?
Life coaching will always be tailored to your needs and so will naturally change over time. Your coaching sessions will gradually reveal what’s holding you back in reaching your goals. Through the sessions with your coach, you will find out exactly what you need to do to get over your mental and emotional blocks.
Spiritual coaching is a way to involve a spiritual element to the traditional coaching relationship. A spiritual coach will guide their clients to find inner happiness, peace and harmony while supporting them on their journey to finding their own sense of wholeness.
