Sunshine Kate’s is an oasis of tranquility tucked along the jersey shore. Be prepared to sparkle brighter after each session in the sauna. Owner, Kate, has helped add another pillar of wellness into my regime that keeps me healthier, happier and more balanced. Much gratitude to her...as my life towards holistic wellness has reached a new level. Did I mentioned the mocktails? Nurturing mason jars made with love and awareness.
The moment I first walked into Sunshine Kate’s, I remember thinking to myself “wow she really is Sunshine Kate!” and that is because Kate, Georgia and the entire staff at Sunshine Kate’s provide such a welcoming, positive atmosphere - a safe space away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life! The sauna services at Sunshine Kate’s have become such an important part of my holistic healing routine and I very much enjoy having a cup of tea after my session, in the unique boutique style setting! I highly recommend Sunshine Kate’s sauna services to anyone in need of a little self care and rest and relaxation! The mental and physical health benefits of the infared sauna were made apparent to me after my first visit and ever since I keep coming back for more - not only did I feel great after my first visit but my skin looked great as well! Kate and her team are so knowledgeable and I look forward to trying the many other services available at Sunshine Kate’s such as nutrition and woman’s health services!
Sunshine Kate’s is is so appropriately named as Kate emits an aura of sunshine and light when you enter her establishment. When my daughter and I were diagnosed with chronic illness and needed to detox. We were referred to Sunshine Kate’s and could not be happier that we were! Not only did the sauna’s help medically, but the wonderful conversation that we had with Kate were enlightening. We went on to do the Womb Wellness and have since brought other friends and family, who all say it was one of the best experiences of their lives! Sauna is now forever a part of our wellness as well as the other events that Kate holds. She will forever be a part of out lives.
Sunshine Kate’s is one of the greatest gifts our community has been given. I started seeing Kate last winter after getting sick from living in a moldy environment and fell in love with the healing practices she offers. From my first visit to her space, I felt so comfortable and cared for- like a weight had been lifted and I had a friend walking beside me in my healing. To have a professional validate your symptoms and offer holistic and alternative methods of healing is super powerful. I’ve gone through several packages of sauna sessions and Kate’s Womb Wellness treatment and can’t say enough positive things about my experiences. The sauna sessions have helped me keep the winter blues at bay, manage life long painful periods, detox from mold and candida overgrowth, reduce joint inflammation, calm my nervous system, reconnect with and grow in respect for how I treat my body. Thank you, thank you!
Our wombs hold much wisdom & house our emotions, innocence, intuition & intelligence. Most of us have never been taught how to care for ourselves never mind our womb. In an age where more & more women take a pill to cease menstruation, Kate is on a mission to re-connect the feminine with her radiance once again. I recommend her services to women of all race, gender & age.I recently had a Womb Wellness session with Kate and felt compelled to share my personal experience in the hopes that more women will utilize Kate’s offerings & empower themselves to let go & surrender to their beauty, grace & inner wisdom.Kate is one of the most supportive, compassionate & intelligent women I have come to know, appreciate & respect. She soothingly guides you through a meditation as you receive the warmth & comfort of the steaming herbs, inviting you to dive deeper into yourself & gently unearth the shadows shading your light. Upon Kate’s exit, I was able to sip soothing raspberry tea & journal as my experience began to unfold.The naval candle & castor clay abdominal cleanse was profoundly relaxing & once again Kate’s soothing soft voice navigates you into deep restoration & release. I felt a sudden shift occur here as a lot of stuck energy began to surface & there was a subtle letting go as I relaxed deeper into the nurturance of the treatment.The session ended with a 25 minute sauna detox which enabled toxins to eliminate through the sweat glands. There is always this feeling of renewal after a sauna session but especially following this particular treatment.Over the course of 48 hours post session with Kate, I continued to experience a powerful release of emotions & felt more confortable surrendering to my own vulnerability which is often a challenge for me.Thank you Kate for your light a beautiful experience!
Kate Strakosch is a beautiful beam of radiant sunshine for women. Her sensitivity and thoughtfulness to women’s bodies through the care and repair of the womb allowed me to go deeply into my own wounding to unearth and release past traumas. Her womb wellness treatment is like a spa day for the yoni. There was the perfect balance of support and time with Kate as well as alone time for me to process what was coming up. For a few days after I felt a warmth in my womb, I’d never experienced before. Kate’s inner and outer space is so comforting and peaceful. Her attention to detail heightens your sense of awareness. As we women start to wake up and understand that our own essence is connected to the womb of mother earth, we will then begin to heal the planet by first healing our own wombs.
I have known Katie for years and have been fortunate to watch her evolve as a holistic health practitioner. When I learned about the womb wellness service: yoni steam, castor oil/clay pack and sauna therapy she was offering, I was excited to try these ancient healing practices but a little nervous about the intimate nature of the treatments. However, within minutes of our consult, Katie put me at ease and created a space where I felt safe and allowed me to be receptive to the session. Through each of the various services, Katie was attentive, nurturing and knowledgeable. I felt comfortable which allowed me to transition into a relaxed and meditative state so I could fully embrace the physical, emotional and energetic healing techniques.I highly recommend the womb wellness treatment with Katie for all women. This is a unique and specialized service that can have a wide range of benefits and support overall wellbeing.
It was a muggy 90 degree day on the Jersey Shore and I went to see my friend Kate, whom I was doing a trade with for healing services. Her office was cool as was her demeanor. She served me some weather with mint and orange while I filled out an intake form. There was a note that said no smokers were allowed in the sauna and a question of whether I had an implants or cosmetic injections, first time I remember answering this question.Kate created a beautiful little ceremony, where she smudged me with a sweet prayer for my hands, eyes and throat and ears to do good in the world. Herbal teas were arranged from which I was instructed to choose 3, 5 or 7 an odd number being associated with the divine feminine. Red raspberry and red clover were the base. I chose chamomile, rosehips and nettle as well. other options were licorice, dandelion, mugwort, burdock. We set intentions and made prayers.The “throne” was a wooden chair with the back removed and a circle cut in the middle. It was covered with towels to pad and underneath was a small platform for the bowl to sit. Together we placed my chosen herbs in some boiling water and stirred them in the large mixing bowl, similar to a chamber pot. Once the herbs were in place, Kate left the room, I took off everything from the waist down and wrapped a sarong around my hips. I sat down on the throne with my feet wide and made sure the sarong kept the steam in. The thought crossed my mind that I’d never sat in this position without releasing something out of my lower orfices and here I was taking something in. I hoped I didn’t pee in my herbs. I didn’t. It was a warm soothing sensation. If I tilted my pelvis forward and back I could, after sometime, actually feel a gentle warmth in my uterus. ‘Nourish and release’ was the mantra that came to mind. Kate learned this technique from the Yoni Sisters, who hold the African tradition. There is also an ancient Korean tradition of yoni steams and perhaps a peruvian. A treatment best before or after menstruation and 6 weeks after childbirth, the Yoni sisters claim that vaginal steams may assist with:heavy bleedingstishemorrhoidspcosinfertilityprolapsed uterusweight losswomb traumasinflammationirregular menseshot flashesbacterial infectionwomb karmafibroidsvaginal drynessemotional imbalancepain reliefstress reliefIn my experience, with having an std, miscarriage, small tear from childbirth and abortion, this felt like a healing ritual for a part of my body I don’t always have the ability or skill to care for other than self reiki. After my steam, Kate brought me to the table where she made a clay and castor oil pack over my uterus. She covered it with flannel, while she led me through a visualization. It was a relaxing and nourishing experience. After 20 mins, I then spent another 20 minutes in her little far infared sauna. What a spa day for my vagina!!!
I just wanted to give a big thanks to Sunshine Kates. I recently went to Kates for a Yoni Steaming sessions and just had to comment. Not just a sessions, but what an incredible experience it was. What i liked about it so much was Katie made it very personable. You take a mini test about what exactly you are going for and after you get to create a unique blend of herbs just for you. She does a clay cleanse on your belly and after you get to relax in the color sauna room for 20 minutes. What made it so special to me as the small thoughtful details and personal touches. The fact you get to make tour own herbal blend and set an intention, the little pot of tea and warm water with lemon, the meditation introduction and quiet time to read. After the session Katie then went ahead and wrote down some nutritional advice and supplements recommended to take. It was such a warming experience and a true place to feel like you can get away in new jersey. Thanks so much for this Katie! I will definitely be back.
I love and so look forward to coming to Sunshine Kate’s! It has been a major part of my journey into wellness. It is so different than I anticipated, and unlike any previous sauna experience - not only does Kate provide a zen-infused environment with candles, music, teas, water infusions, chromatherapy, and aromatherapy, she brings a level of positivity and pampering that makes the whole experience feel like a full day at the spa. After infrared sauna, I feel like I have had a long massage- my skin is better, muscles relaxed, sinuses drained. It really is a pillar of my wellness journey, and I have recommended it to wholeheartedly to family and friends!
Discovering Sunshine Kates has been a pleasant surprise. Escaping into the sauna is just what a person needs some days. Once inside I feel things start to melt away, be it muscle aches, or worries of the day. It’s been easy to work this treatment into my schedule on a weekly basis. I love the feeling afterwards, its “the best” for my body and mind . Thank you Kate!
Sunshine Kate is a blessing to the community by offering a space for women to be served as we would be in ancient times. I have been practicing, preparing and presenting earth based rituals for well over 30 years, serviced by many wise women. Kate’s services are a “gift” to all women and ALL women should take part. “Give up yourself within the heart and hands of strong women and you shall be risen.
Kate from Sunshine Kate’s is incredible she is a wealth of knowledge! The Sauna is absolutely cleansing, relaxing, and started me back on a path to wellness.
While engaging in Gentle Yoga, I was introduced to Katie Strakosch as someone that could help me with some health issues that were frustrating me.When I met with Katie, I knew that she would be the one person that could help me with these issues. She radiates from within. Her angelic glow tells me that whatever she is doing for herself, I want in my life!We began with her Radiant Path program. She taught me about inflammation and digestion. What foods help and which foods to avoid. Katie was so full of knowledge that I wanted to learn more and be involved in all that she had to offer as a coach.I have done yoga, cooking lessons, book chats and self-help workshops with her. She has helped me in so many ways that have led me to a more mindful way of life.I am currently eating vegetables that were previously not in my diet and preparing healthy soups and smoothies that are both nourishing and satisfying.I cannot thank Katie enough for putting me on this wonderful path that I am on.
Sunshine Kate gave me a truly amazing Yoga experience. I’m a novice at Yoga and I went in with some trepidation. Kate took the time to understand me and was inspirational in her guidance, both physical and spiritual. Kate then followed up with a personalized set of instructions for me to continue my practice at home. Whether you are a novice like me or an old pro I highly recommend Sunshine Kate. Additionally, she offers an Infrared Sauna Therapy, which I tried. Again, truly amazing and highly recommended.
