Holistic Therapies

Holistic Sessions

Mind, body and spirit are inter-connected and all are of vital importance for optimum well-being. Holistic therapy takes into consideration the balance between all three in the pursuit of your health, happiness and harmony.

Over the last few years I have gained much relief from my stressful home situation from aromatherapy massage with Nalini. I have now switched to aroma healing with her, and find this almost more relaxing and beneficial. Nalini is a very intuitive person, and always knows exactly what I need.
Nalini’s workshop on making lotions and potions from herbs and aromatherapy oils was pure magic, and enthused me to continue the process at home. . (Gillian, Horsham)

Holistic Therapy

With Body Psychology and Yoga Therapy Techniques 

The body holds the memory of all our experiences and by-passes the rational mind, leading to integration and healing.

These holistic sessions work to bring to light underlying causes that may be causing physical conditions, anxiety or unease in your life. The mind and talking therapies are often unable to resolve what is blocking us or causing unhappiness.  Consequently, experiences, trauma or beliefs suppressed by the mind can stand in the way of wellness.  However,  putting the body in charge of the process, release is initiated and new clarity, energy and wellness can flow into our lives.  This often results in healing and integration.

Can help with many issues including stress, anxiety, depression, nervous disorders, PTSD and trauma, exhaustion, shock, hyper-arousal, relationship problems, sleep disturbance, lack of confidence and self-esteem, and debilitating body tension.

Care is taken during these non-invasive sessions to ensure you feel comfortable and safe. We work together from a quiet space to access your body’s innate wisdom as to what needs your attention.   A feeling of lightness, peace and integration is usually experienced at the end of a session.  A series of sessions is recommended to allow time for trust to build and to get to the root of the issue.

Scar Therapy with ScarWork

ScarWork supports healing and functionality of wound, post operative and burn scars and the surrounding areas. 

Our scars tell a story of our lives and are part of us.  However, scars can leave us feeling uncomfortable, both from the appearance and the ongoing physical or emotional effects they can have.  ScarWork addresses these issues, often resulting in profound, restorative healing.

Healing and integration of scars through the techniques of ScarWork can help with any post-op or injury scars including joint replacement, mastectomy and breast surgery, open heart surgery, Caesarean birth, burns, whiplash, sports injuries, self-harm scarring, drain sites and skin grafts. 

Because the techniques work to soften and release adhesions and restrictions, this often results in improved mobility and appearance.  Therefore scars appear smoother, flatter and less prominent, with profound functional changes.  Scars respond irrelevant of their age, and the healing continues for a few weeks after a session.  Moreover, a feeling of overall integration of body and mind can result from ScarWork sessions.

It has been particularly touching for me to see the healing that can happen for women who have gone through the trauma of mastectomy.  ScarWork results in more freedom of movement and restores a sense of wholeness and well-being.  Working with women who have had Caesarean births, results include improved visual effects and a feeling of being reconnected from that cut in two feeling with improved posture and well-being.  Where appropriate, it can work on a deeper level to integrate trauma associated with the birth.

Scar Therapy can often be a catalyst to release emotional scarring which can happen as a result of the trauma of the original event.  This can bring a feeling of integration and increased well-being.

Aromatherapy and Restorative Energy Sessions

The gentle therapy for relaxation and restoration of body, mind and spirit.

Physical and emotional healing

Because healing sessions promote deep relaxation of both body and mind, they are a lovely treatment to receive when you are feeling low and depleted.  Orr if you simply want to take time out to rest and relax.  Because it is a particularly soothing and balancing therapy to receive,it’s a lovely thing to have when you are feeling extremely tender and vulnerable, either physically or emotionally, and have a need for stillness and quiet.  The therapy for grief.  Gentle and restorative for tender conditions including fibromyalgia and CFS.

Myofascial Bodywork may be incorporated in a session, a technique to release restriction in the fascial web of the body. A light-touch therapy, myofascial and energy work aims to release restriction in the fascial web of the body, often resulting in profound healing.  There is a layer of fascia directly under the skin and this continues deeper into the body. Often massage or manipulation are ineffective because the cause of the problem area lies in restriction of the fascial web. This results in the area being anchored by the fascia and it is unable to respond until the restriction is released.  The fascial web can be restricted by both physical and emotional trauma and these techniques address these in a gentle way.

Nalini is also a Bach Flower Practitioner and may include flower remedies where appropriate.
