Having just had my first appointment with Kate I cannot recommend her enough. I have had a bad knee for months and in just one visit she has managed to dramatically improve it to the point I have very little pain at all having had so much pain for so long- I can’t wait to go back again! Was deeply relaxing in every way.

Kate understands any problems that I present with and then delivers a solution, her deep tissue massage with MFR, wonderful scented oils and warm towels make a visit to Red Kite Masseuse an experience as well as a treatment.

Kate is not just an excellent masseuse she has a large knowledge of the body and related sports injuries. She has managed to free up my frozen shoulder injury which I have had for a very long time. A very calming personality she is a lovely person and I would recommend a visit if you need some TLC.

Colin Kitchen - May 2018


With two bulging vertebrae (L4 and L5) I really have to keep on top of the problem with regular massage and chiropractic sessions. For deep tissue massage and stretching Kate is outstanding and I highly recommend her to anyone with these types of issues.

I've been to see Kate for several massages. She is amazingly good and very professional. As a qualified aromatherapist, she is able to create a bespoke oil blend specifically for you and your needs at the time. I felt so relaxed and slept so well after my treatments, looking forward to the next one! Thank you.

Kate is very well trained and a wonderful masseuse. I have benefited greatly from her remedial input and cannot recommend her services enough. Kate is also a very kind and compassionate person who cares deeply for her clients.

Kates massages are incredible! I had a treatment recently that blended aromatherapy massage with myofascial release (MFR) - it was so powerful. The combination of the healing aromas from my personal blend of essential oils with a deep and intuitive massage that was totally tailored to my body, felt like it had an instantaneous profoundly positive impact on my mental and physical wellbeing. I've never felt so deeply relaxed. Kate really knows what she's doing, she's a true healer! Highly recommended. Thank you.

Aromatherapy oils tailored to what I needed, warm unintimidating welcome, heated bed, fantastic deep tissue massage, effective stretches emailed to me... my experience couldn't have been better. Kate is highly recommended!

Helen Oliver - May 2017

Amazing experience . Highly recommend . Will return.

Bradford Dartmoors - March 2017


Kate is lovely and extremely talented as a masseuse. She also has thorough knowledge of aromatherapy oils. Definitely recommended by me.

Jacqui Smith - February 2017


I've had many a massage in health clubs and spa's but none have left me feeling so good the day after. The deep tissue massage works into all the areas that need work, the whole experience is great, I come out feeling relaxed and looking forward to the next visit. I can move more easily and feel so much better. Kate you are also so easy to talk to I feel I can discuss both physical and emotional issues with you which leads to a greater feeling of relaxation. So thank you so very much you are my find for 2016.

How can we do Kate's massages justice in a testimonial? Well, let's just say that I am now a little hesitant to book massages when having a spa day in a hotel as I know they won't measure up to the ones Kate has given me over the past 2 years. The oils she uses have been specially selected to match your needs and your moods. Her many years of experience will guarantee a tailor-made massage focusing on the areas you need worked on. So many times I have left other beauty salons feeling that I could use another massage straightway as they had barely dealt with all the knots I had on my neck and my back. Not the case with Kate. Kate has a genuine concern for your well being and will give you advice on how to improve your posture as well as key stretches to help with your problem areas. Above all, she has the most relaxed and gentle disposition. As you might guess I would have no hesitation in recommending her. Oh, and by recommending her to my husband and friends, who subsequently have had and enjoyed their massages I got 30% my next two massages!! Just brill!

Amelie Thompson - December 2016


Kate is an amazing Masseuse, I am proud to be a regular and have recommended her more than once, so I recommend her to you, she has magic hands and really makes you feel amazing afterwards! Best massage I have ever had - that's why I am a regular.

Nicola Eland - December 2016


The best massage! Thank you Kate for my wonderful treatments.

Sukanya Burgess - December 2016

I have been to see Kate a few times now and I can from experience say that Kate really knows her stuff. A combination of great aromatherapy and a fabulous deep tissue sports massage I would highly recommend.

Marc Ellison - December 2016

Absolutely fab pre-natal massages with this very talented lady! They relax both the mind and the body, helping everything feel more Comfortable.

Nicci Clay - November 2016


I do long distance triathlons (3.8km swim, 180km cycle, 42.2km run) specifically Ironman series... And I'm not 31;) Or 41;) So to cover the distance & not sustain injury is a challenge but not impossible. A way is preventative strategies to limit injury caused by stiff, sore & tight muscles. The main cause of muscle damage is mechanical stress. Regular massage & manipulation by Kate alleviates these symptoms & helps incident free training. It is possible to maintain a challenging training schedule & reduce exposure to injury. I blame Kate 😇 🙌

Kate absolutely loved her massage. She said that although she wasn't aware that she was feeling tight and tense, she now feels so much more relaxed and peaceful. Also, just as you said, she didn't come out feeling so relaxed that she wasn't able to continue with her revision this evening   She's in her room now working away! Thank you for making Kate's first massage such a special experience. We really couldn't have hoped for anyone better.

Alison and Kate Atkinson - May 2016

I would like to highly recommended Red Kite. After many years of living with stages of slight to severe discomfort, I have finally found relief with Kate's massage. I cannot remember how many people I have seen before, but Kate is definitely the best!!!

Rachel Evans – April 2016


Hi Kate, just wanted to let you know that the oil you made up for me last week to help me sleep is really working well. I've suffered for years with broken sleeping patterns and decided to do something about it. I started taking Numark night time sleep aid but stopped taking that after a few nights when I looked at the information leaflet that came with it and read about the warnings, it also made me feel groggy in the morning. Then I tried Nytol but that seems to be hit and miss and also makes me feel groggy in the morning but not as bad as the Numark. The oil you made works and I feel like I've had a good nights sleep. Plus it has a nice aroma which is a bonus. i have a friend at work who also suffers with bad sleep so she wants to try the oil as well. Thanks.

Patrick Desire – January 2016


Hi Kate, just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you for the deep tissue massage yesterday, I feel like I can move around more freely today, will definitely be back :-) xx

Nicola Landless – January 2016


Just wanted to say thanks very much for the Sports Massage I had at Red Kite recently. I have had several treatments with Kate and she always tailors the treatment perfectly to my needs. A brilliant, professional masseuse and a lovely person to boot. Thanks Kate - Looking forward to the next treatment :-) x

Ro Barrett – January 2016


I had a head and hand massage from Kate a while ago which was lovely, but last week I had the full body aromatherapy and deep tissue massage. Oh wow, what a great feeling. Kate gets down into the knots and sorts out your aches and pains, and all the while using lovely scented oils she blends just for you. So you end up totally relaxed, with well oiled joints and smelling fantastic!

Phil Gowler – January 2016


Thank you Kate for an amazing back massage. Kate blended a number of aromatherapy oils to help me. My back feels so much better and I slept better than I have in weeks. I highly recommend her! Thanks again.

Tania Fisher – November 2015


This is my second visit and I’m so pleased with how I feel. 1) on arriving Kate is so polite 2) is very attentive and makes sure you are very comfortable 3) you feel so relaxed and good when all done. Would highly recommend Kate to all my friends and more. Thanks Kate x

Yesterday Mum & I went to visit Kate of Red Kite Masseuse - Deep Tissue : Aromatherapy in the pretty village of Hermitage near Newbury. The journey from Swindon was well worth it. Mum had a Back, Shoulder & Neck massage and i had a Hot Stone massage. We both had a special blend of oils made up for us which smelt lovely. I had a great nights sleep & woke up without lower back pain. I haven't had a full night's sleep without waking up for months. Thank you Kate Maier my lovely friend you are a true healer. I would recommend an Aromatherapy treatment for everyone whether you have aches and pains or just need a relaxing body massage.

Julie Welsh – October 2015


Thank you Kate for a fantastic aromatherapy massage again today at The Wellbeing Centre. I feel beautifully relaxed and calm. Your knowledge, experience and skill with both massage and essential oils really comes across during the treatment. Combined together with your lovely calming demeanor this makes for a fantastic service. I'm looking forward to my next treatment already!
