Shamanic Healing

Great for emotional recovery and healing.  As we all go through life we are susceptible to emotional and energetic dents, wounds, accidents, damaging attachments, or attack.  Shamanic healing seeks to repair energy damage, remove attachments, and heal and shield against spiritual wounds.

From a Shamanic point of view illness comes from spiritual or energetic disharmony, loss or imbalance.

Shamanic healing is possibly one of the oldest healing styles around. Using drum, rattle, and smudge along with ancient techniques are all part of Shamanic healing.

In a shamanic healing session I connect with my Power Animals and other spirit helpers and guides and use power objects such as crystals, stones, and feathers.  With these tools and helpers I will work with you to remove energetic intrusions, remove blockages or 'dirt' from the aura and heavy energy, return and retrieve lost soul parts and Power.  

Some of the work is passive - I work around you while you relax on the couch; and some work is interactive where you take part in the healing releasing pain and trauma imprints - this can be very empowering.  Some of these shamanic healing objectives have a close overlap with modern psychotherapy.

Soul Loss

When we experience a shock, long term stress, or bereavement , for example, we often feel like we are going through life in a fog, as if we are vacant, operating at a distance, or like we’re wading through treacle.  We might use phrases like ‘I don’t feel like I’m really here’ after a shock, or ‘I feel as if a part of me went with him’ when someone passes away; ‘I haven’t been the same since…’ When we experience these things we are said to be suffering from Soul Loss. These feelings may be temporary and after a short time we may feel normal again but if they become longer term and life is a struggle then shamanic healing may help.

Intrusion Removal

As we go through life we may inadvertently pick up energetic intrusions, like walking through woodland we might pick up a thorn or twig on clothing. Occasionally someone else may have deliberately or unintentionally imposed on us energetically. Aura ‘dirt’ can be likened to having mud splashes on a car windscreen; it can impair our view or slow us down.

A shamanic intrusion removal extracts and disposes of inappropriate energy, and 'cleans' and smooths the aura.

Healing the Child

We all have the child in us that was hurt, frightened, angry, or neglected in some way.  In this we work to heal these old wounds we still carry with us that still impact our life today.  Often working with a parent or other parent archetype to let go of trauma and regain our rightful Power.

Shamanic General Healing Session

During this 2 hour session I use smudge herbs, essential oils, stone placement, crystal grids, sounds and healing vibration from drum and rattle as I connect with my guides to offer you the healing you need right now.  A great introduction to shamanic healing styles before committing to deeper work.  An enjoyable session to clear your energy fields and bring deep relaxation.

Shamanic Essential Oils Nurturing Spirit 

Enjoy guided imagery to journey to a magical place where you will meet Plant Spirits, one of whom will make itself known to you.  When you 'return' your plant spirit oil will be set warming and diffusing while you receive healing through the hands of the practitioner (similar to reiki) to key point on the body, before anointing of warm oils to hands and feet.

As with all treatments you remain clothed throughout (covered in a warm blanket in cooler months) and only feet and hands are exposed to anoint the oils and then covered again in a warm towel.

I use organic and wild-crafted essential oils and organic carrier oil.  Smudge herbs are ethically sourced and or from my own garden.

This is a nurturing two hour session, please prepare to be deeply relaxed, drink plenty of water afterwards, and plan to continue to relax after you leave if possible.

A great introduction to semi-guided journeying (a little like meditation), followed by a nurturing relaxing treatment.

Effects

Deep relaxation can be expected during and after a shamanic healing session, a feeling of groundedness, peace, and the ability to function well. A feeling of reconnection, and finding of aspects of your self you thought were lost, for example regaining your happy playful nature you lost as a child, without becoming immature or childish.

A series of healings may be desirable as with each session new things come up for healing as appropriate to be cleared.

Shamanic Acupressure

(more details on the Shamanic Acupressure page)

Balance and harmony using key Acu points with gentle pressure and no needles.  

Shamanic acupressure utilises the flow of universal qi (chi) through the body via channels known as meridians to bring balance, flow, and harmony.

The Five Element philosophy and dynamics of Yin and Yang provide the foundations of this system of healing.  You may already be familiar with the concept of Acupressure or Acupuncture utilised in TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine).

Pulses of each meridian are read offering a wonderful energy diagnostic tool. 

30 key acu points are accessed with the fingertips, crystals, or special carved stones to rebalance the whole energy body, releasing stress and bringing a sense of calmness and wellbeing.

Shamanic healing, like any holistic therapy, is not a substitute for medical help, please consult your GP if you are unwell.
