For optimal well being, healing and self care must occur on both the physical and mental/emotional levels. In Chinese medicine (and many Eastern philosophies), various emotional states are connected to different organs and body parts. We store various issues and traumas in our bodies: “Your issues are in your tissues”. If you’ve had an injury or problem that you have addressed, possibly several times, but it keeps coming back, chances are that you need healing on an emotional/mental level as well. As a personal trainer, I address the physical side of things. As a healer, I address the emotional/mental aspect. For example, hip problems can be related to moving forward. If you have a physical hip injury, you should certainly address it. As a healer, I can help you clear the issues that keep bringing the problem back. I do this through Reflexology, Reiki and various forms of energy work. I facilitate SELF HEALING, which requires your active participation to achieve maximum benefit. As a trainer, I can give you advice on exercises that would benefit you.
