“Our two brains – the one in our head and the one in our bowel — must cooperate. If they do not, then there is chaos in the gut and misery in the head – Everything from “butterflies” to cramps, from diarrhea to constipation”.

Dr. Michael Gerson (MD), author of The Second Brain

Ayurveda is an ancient holistic system of medicine and natural healing that originated in India and has been practiced for more than 5000 years. It is thought to be the oldest known form of healthcare in the world. Ayurveda holds that nothing exists in isolation and that a person’s wellness is dependent on the body, mind, emotions and spirit being in harmony. Ayurveda applies the wisdom of Nature, and is a science of self-healing. It encompasses diet and nutrition, lifestyle, herbs, breathing techniques, meditation, jyotish, and emotional and subtle body (chakra) balancing to attain health and happiness, and the ability to be our own ‘physician’.

Ayurvedic consultations are also available at a distance via FaceTime, Google hangouts, Skype.

Chi Nei Tsang (CNT) – Organ Detox Bodywork

CNT is a type of healing touch therapy from China that was first used by Taoist monks over a thousand years ago to help detoxify the organs and strengthen the body. CNT is based on the belief that emotional stresses and trauma produce toxins that are become embedded in the body’s organs and tissues, particularly in the digestive tract. It is these toxins that contribute to disease. Hence, CNT involves deep though gentle abdominal touch to expel the toxins and help the internal organs to work more effectively.  It allows for the release of emotions and supports awareness of the thought patterns/beliefs that prevent us experiencing abundant health in body-mind-spirit.

Distance/Energy Healing

How can placing hands on or a slight distance away from another person initiate healing? After decades of giving and receiving distance treatments the short answer is: I don’t really know, but I know it works. Some of the most profound shifts in my own health have been a result of energy work, hands on or distance.  
All of life is energy. Unseen, there is no denying energy ‘exists’ or we wouldn’t be alive, seeking fulfilling lives. At source we are but ‘energy’ and though we die, science has proven the ‘soul’ does not. We experience emotion but we do not ‘see’ it. We are more than our five senses, and more and more people are becoming awake to that. Reiki, intention, unconditional love – more and more we hear of the power of a universal intelligence and our spiritual heart resonates with this. This is a boundless creative force. When we connect with this and we establish supportive conditions for healing, a powerful Grace is experienced. Energy healing supports all our other more tangible good work..

Animal Communication

These work as with distance healing with the primary healing force being unconditional love. Animal Communication sessions provide our animal friends a voice. We often project so much of our own assumptions and beliefs onto animals, and we are often wrong! Animals have an amazing purpose in life as teachers, as companions, and in their own right. Animal communication sessions help resolve behavioural and health issues.  As well, they are of great value and comfort when an animal has passed. Animals will request healing from me if desired. These sessions provide a fascinating and eye-opening experience that is of benefit to both human and animal.
