Reflexology is a very ancient technique working on the basis that areas in the feet directly mirror the body. Working specific areas of congestion in the feet can release tension and pain in the body. You will receive a relaxing foot bath and cleanse, then whilst you recline on the couch you are the recipient of a wonderful foot and ankle massage of specific zones, targeting areas of congestion, breaking them down, promoting deep relaxation, improvements in sleeping, improved mood and stress relief. Reflexology is great if you are suffering from stress, emotional issues, aches, tiredness, menopause symptoms and so much more. It is a deeply relaxing therapy and regular sessions can bring improvements longer term.

Healing - Wellness, Energy, Shamanic, Reiki
Shamanic healing can incorporate targeted areas, utilising spiritual energy, invoking help from spirit or the spirits of the place, ancestors or guides and helpers, a rattle can be used, or a drum. A Shamanic practitioner will journey to find causes of stagnation, or to retrieve and repair any part of the soul lost or torn due to incidents or trauma, Shamanic healing can be bone healing which is very like Reiki healing, or it can be crystal extraction, it can repair the auric field which may be damaged due to illness. or despair. Shamanic practitioners use skills and tools , both physical and spiritually, to help the client. These skills are learned and experienced over time and again, and it does not end.
Reiki is an ancient form of spiritual healing, it utilises the universal life force energy , it is channelled through the practitioner to promote healing to the client, whilst you lie comfortably under warm, soft blankets. Reiki energy goes where it is needed, it is a hands on hands off therapy.
I also utilise crystals to aid in healing and balancing chakras if required.
These healing sessions can help with alignment, emotional balance, feelings of hopelessness, loss, connections, aches, positive thinking, life paths, inner child healing, feeling stuck, lineage healing. It can help with redressing daily stress or bringing a deep sense of spirituality, it can aid you in easing and dealing with pain, it promotes restful sleep and gives the body peace. You will leave with a deep sense of relaxation and calmness which may last several days.
Reiki is a very gentle, non invasive therapy, suitable for everyone.
Reiki energy will come through in all of my therapies, it is not mine to hold or contain, however within these healing sessions it is intentionally channelled to bring aid, but Reiki flows, it is not linear. I am not a Shaman I am a Shamanic Practitioner there is a difference. I have learned Shamanic practices for many years and have found that in healing sessions it is often impossible to separate both systems, indeed trying to keep both separate lead only to frustration and a disservice to my clients sessions. Many Reiki practitioners do not like the idea of Shamanic Reiki but I have learned never to argue with spirit! When you come for one of these sessions you will get what you need. I trust that.
