Having always had a leaning towards alternatives I finally got the
opportunity to learn my skills in my 40s, so I have quite a few years experience. I
came to each modality as it insinuated itself in my mind and I just had to find out what
it was all about. I was a Reiki practitioner for 10 years before I felt the need to
train as a Master, so that I am now able to pass on this most wonderful of therapies to
anyone who wishes to have healing in their hands, which can be used any time, any place,
anywhere. It works on humans, animals, plants, situations, etc. etc. it could be you
never have to visit the doctor again!
Speaking of which, Bach Flower Remedies are pure magic. A few drops of the correctly
diagnosed remedy, based on emotions, not the disease and miracles can happen - and all for
a very modest sum.
Reflexology is great to ease those aches and pains of daily living, be they niggling
backaches or the ever-present arthritic pain. These can be eased with great effect
and regular treatments can really help to lessen any pain and keep it at bay for a few
days, or longer, depending on the severity or longevity of the complaint. Basically,
Reflexology boosts the immune system so that if all the body is working better then there
is energy to spare to help with a particular problem. It is a get well, keep well therapy,
so it is great for mum's before and after childbirth.
All treatments are wholistic, as a Nutritionist dietary help is also to hand. A smile
costs nothing. You have to give one away to make to make it worth something. See my
advert on page 15.
|After a clear out at home I had a stack of binliners and
waltzed them off to the charity shop. Only what I didn't realise was that the bin of
rubbish destined for the dustbin was amongst them. The woman at the charity shop
took the bags off me and a few minutes later I heard her gasp. She must have thought
I had left the shop but in fact I was having a browse (I do this, get rid of stuff and
then buy more!) I heard her exclaim, "Can you believe the things some people
bring here!" I turned to see she had tipped up the bag which was full of
broken toys, an unravelled jumper, tatty underwear, the dog's towel and others too
numerous to mention!
