I work intuitively using an integrative, holistic approach drawing from a rich toolbox of skills which I have developed over 35 years of working and training within the Therapeutic and  Healing Arts field. 
I have trained in Flower and Vibrational Medicine, Humanistic psychology, Deep Tissue Bodywork, Counselling, Person centred Art Therapy and Labyrinth Facilitation alongside a life long interest in complimentary medicine and healthy living.

I work with my eyes, hands and heart. 




Flower and Vibrational Essences

Essences offer a pathway to long lasting change as well as day to day help to keep us emotionally balanced and centred. I use both the Bach Flower Essences for ongoing balancing and more recent ranges, including Crystal Herbs, Alaskan and Lightbringer Essences alongside my own essences I have made myself over the past 15 years. These essences  work on many different energetic levels and helping us move into a more easeful and effective way of being, letting go of  out dated, unhelpful deep rooted belief systems, generational patterning, wounding and ways of being.

They are powerful but gentle healers and when we begin using them we can expect subtle and sometimes not so subtle changes to start occurring in our lives. As we become more conscious, able to be authentic, actualize our potential and be aligned with our unique soul calling, we can also begin to find peace and acceptance and the blessings of our past connecting with our own unique inner strength and knowing.

How they work

Vibrational Essences work by capturing the healing potential held energetically within all aspects of creation - flowers, crystals, animals, colours ,sacred sites , particular times of the yearly and planetary cycles, through water's ability to hold memory and vibration. On some level we all recognise the inherent healing qualities of creation tapping into them in many ways, for example seeking the peace of Green spaces, taking flowers to ill folk, we feel more energised and at peace in some places whilst other places can make us feel uneasy or even ill; the same applies to colours , times of the year and so on. 

Vibrational essences contain the energetic imprint or vibration of a flower, tree,crystal, place or planetary event which is captured in water which is then stabilised by the addition of a preservative ( usually alcohol)  There is increasing scientific evidence now to support this  which is something healers and shamans have been doing for thousands of years. 

Check out Dr Masuru Omoto's work on 'The Secret Messages of Water' , if you want to understand this more fully which is at the heart of the essence making process 

Dosage and uses

Essences are usually taken internally, they can also be used for animals, plants and on the land. A typical dosage would be to take four drops on your tongue twice daily from a 25ml dropper bottle of your personalised combination.

Essences can be used safely and effectively alongside conventional and other forms of complimentary medicine. Essences also work very well alongside other forms of complimentary medicine and in no way affect the efficacy of conventional medicine. In combination they can enhance the effectiveness of other treatments for example I add them into my massage oils and can be taken alongside psychotherapy, energy and bodywork, herbal medicine and homeopathy. As sprays they can also be used for clearing negative atmosphere, for protection and keeping our own energy field clear.

Consultations and services

From the twenty minutes taster session you will receive a personalised combination of Bach Flower Essences to help you live your daily life in a more emotionally balanced way.

This will be followed by a recommended minimum of two further consultations over a three to six month period.

Intuitive Massage for Relaxation.
Image result for images of massage

Our hands are designed to touch , hold and reach out to others. To receive a massage is one of the most nourishing things we can do for ourselves and is a simple way of maintaining good connection with our bodies, the deep relaxation involved encourages a return to our self and or centre. 

Benefits of Massage

As well as being very enjoyable massage has many proven health benefits.

It is well known that the body's natural capacities for self regulation and self healing operate most effectively well when the body is in a state of rest and relaxation - this is why busy lifestyles, ongoing stress and constant stimulation does not give the body sufficient chance to re balance and heal. Good regular sleep patterns is the way we naturally do this but it is also helpful to establish other ways of allowing our bodies and minds to relax and to let go of blocked areas of tension. We can then begin to see that this applies on not only to the physical but also on mental and emotional levels too. There are obviously many other factors that also effect our ability to maintain health and well being including diet , regular exercise , meditation and good holistic healthcare.

Massage is one of the many forms of Complimentary Healthcare that takes a holistic approach helping us maintain or re establish equilibrium in mind, body, soul and spirit. By having regular massage we can develop increasingly good self care and become more effective, happy, healthy, self aware and loving human beings.

What a massage session involves.

We will start with a short verbal consultation to make sure I have all the required information and a broad overview of your current state of health.

Depending on which massage option you have chosen - head , hands, feet, neck, back or full body, you will be asked to undress to your under wear and get yourself comfortably established onto the massage couch with various towels included for your comfort, while I leave the room.

On returning we can proceed with the massage - you are free to either talk, have background music or simply enjoy silence in the session.

Clients sometimes fall asleep or go into a deep almost trance like state of relaxation at some point in the massage so I will gently inform you when the session is complete and offer you a glass of water before leaving the room for a few minutes while you can gently return to everyday consciousness and get fully dressed again.

When I return to the room I will check how you are feeling and if there is any feedback we want to share from the session, including thoughts, requests or suggestions for the next session.

I generally use massage oils enhanced with Aromatherapy oils and also often include personalized Vibrational Essences to help harmonise and balance your mind, body, soul and spirit. I work intuitively trusting my hands to know where to go, always with the intention of balance and healing, no two massages are identical as I tune into your current state and areas of stress and tension.

Clients usually leave the session with a greater ease and relaxation with themselves and their bodies.

Fees

£40 for 1 hour massage of any combination of head hands, neck, back, feet or full body.

£60 for 90 minute massage of any combination of head hands, neck, back, feet or full body.


I currently work from my home in South Cave and at the llkley Healing Centre
