My own journey of self healing started in my late 20's when I developed eczema just on my face and was suffering from anxiety, panic attacks and insomnia which was brought on by stress.
I tried various conventional and alternative methods to seek help and a cure and along my journey of discovery of trying different modalities that worked with energy, this sparked my interest in finding out more. This took me on the path of learning Zen Shiatsu and over the 3 years of studying Traditional Chinese Medicine it helped me understand the cause of my eczema and brought about a cure. It also helped to empower myself to make big changes in my life circumstances and in doing so I no longer suffer with anxiety.
In late 2016, I developed a frozen shoulder which was quite painful. Understanding that it was stuck energies in the meridians that run through the shoulder, it had manifested in a painful physical symptom. I worked on myself by clearing the stagnant ki in the meridians which took about 6 months to completely clear.
Qualifications and Training
I studied with the Shiatsu College, Bristol, qualifying in June 2004 and am a Fellow member of the Shiatsu Society UK. In January 2006 I gained a Diploma in Professional Energy Field Healing. This works with the chi in the Energy Field or aura that surrounds the body. Shiatsu and Energy Field Healing are two halves of a whole healing system that works with the Ki inside and outside the body.
I am a qualified advanced Shibashi Tai Chi Qigong Session Leader with the Shibashi Training Academy and run local qigong classes in the Highlands. Find out more on my website www.shibashihighlands.scot
Giving Shiatsu has enabled me to get in touch with my own healing energy and practising Qigong on a regular basis has resulted in a great improvement in my own health and wellbeing.
My passion is to help those who wish to take charge of their own health and wellbeing and who are on a journey of self-empowerment and self discovery. Through the powerful healing touch of shiatsu and energy work, we can let go of unwanted patterns and belief systems that may be holding us back and preventing change so we can live a life of joy, peace and happiness.
