Introduction to Crystal Healing

Crystals have been used both in spiritual rituals and as aids to physical healing throughout history and have slowly become more and more essential to us in our everyday lives. Nowadays, Crystal therapy uses crystals as conductors to focus energy via a person's thoughts to stimulate healing - both physical and non-physical.

This 1 day introductory course will lead you through the basics of healing with crystals, sensing and applying the energy of the crystal using both colour and correspondences to create a gentle healing technique, powerful in its simplicity.

Reiki 1 - Shoden

As a Reiki Master/Teacher, I use Mikao Usui’s system of Reiki, which is a very simple, yet powerful, ancient energy system designed to take you on a personal healing journey. Reiki is know as 'A system arrived at through a moment of enlightenment', when Usui experienced satori as he was searching for his ultimate purpose in life.

Shoden or first degree, is all about awakening the energy and flow of Reiki within you. looking at where Reiki came from, the history of Mikao Ushi and how Reiki has developed during the years.

We will learn how to connect to the energies of Reiki and how this will allow us to self-heal, using meditation techniques like ‘Hatsu Rei Ho’ and Reiju empowerments. Also we will look at how to use Reiki in treatments for others, involving hand positions and connection techniques.

This course will form the foundation of your practice with Reiki and start you on a personal journey that will change your life.

Okuden or second degree, is all about distinguishing between the different frequencies of Reiki energy and learning how to work with these energies more intuitively.

This level is less interested in the structured way of giving treatments that you learnt in Shoden and leans more towards a free-form approach. It will cover Western Reiki symbols and also at Japanese methods and sounds.

This course will continue to strengthen your connection to the energies of Reiki as you continue on your journey that you started at first degree.

Reiki Drum Technique

This course combines both Reiki and Shamanic Drumming to create a powerful healing technique that uses both sound and hands on healing. We use the drum to introduce Reiki into the client's body, shifting blockages and rebalancing the energy field. The melding of these two systems means that the energy of the drum becomes gentle, protective and works for the highest good of the client just as in a normal Reiki treatment.

The use of sound through ancient tribal cultures is well known and still practiced in many parts of the world today and modern science now has research supporting the benefits of sound healing, especially through drumming affecting the brain activity to aid with illness, addictions, Altziemers, building self-esteem and healing emotional trauma.

This 2 day intensive is more than just a professional development course. Much of the practical work is rooted in shamanic practices so that during this course you will experience several journeys, working on your own self healing throughout. Many students find that they release blockages over the course of the weekend, and find it a profound experience of personal, spiritual development and deep healing.

Drum included in the course.

Experience

Reiki Drum Healer & Teacher

The Reiki Drum Technique fuses together Reiki and medicine drumming creating an intuitive practice, which introduces healing energy into your energy field allowing blockages to shift and rebalancing you. When you bring together Shamanism and Reiki, the energy used during the drumming becomes gentle and more protective and works for your own highest good as with a normal Reiki treatment.

Reiki Drum Healing
Healing energy is introduced into your energy field by gentle drumming around and above the body, surrounding you with a wall of healing sound vibrations, helping to break through blockages and helping to rid you of tensions and stress. This is followed by an intuitive, hands on Reiki session to integrate the healing and leaving you feeling balanced and grounded.

This technique is popular in the United States but it is still very new to the UK and I am one of very few practitioners offering this service to clients in Croydon, SE London, Surrey and Kent.

Reiki Drum Mental & Emotional Reprogramming
During this healing session you will be an active part of the treatment and the drum will help to engage you on a consious level as well as working with the subconscious. Many people now believe that our thoughts and emotions play an very active part in the way we experience out lives and that by focusing on the positive you can alter your experience to one that is much more pleasant. So during this treatment we will look at areas that you find challenging and create a positive affirmation that will create a change for you. By using this affirmation during the treatment you will be resetting your beliefs on many different levels.

Reiki Drum Journey
A Reiki Drum Journey is similar in many ways to a Shamanic or trance journey, which is an ancient form of mediation and can be compared to a meditation assisted by sound. The drum beat is used to take you to an altered state of consciousness, allowing you to take a mentally visual journey into another realm. During this journey, answers can be sought for any problem that you may be facing in your life, ranging from career or relationship problems to grief or emotional trauma. The drum carries the client to receive the wisdom of Spirit and the higher self.

Shamanic Spirit Healer & Teacher

The Shamanic tradition of healing and working with Spirit Guides is one of the oldest spiritual practices know and can be traced back at least 50,000 years.

Shamanism is not a religion but a connection to the Great Spirit, allowing us to regain old wisdom and reintegrate parts of our life force that we have lost touch with. This allows us to regain our natural power and connection to the earth and universe around us.

"Alison is competant and spiritually very powerful. It had a very profound effect on me" Mary, South London

The core practice is the journey to non-ordinary realities, the lower world, which is usually a very verdant Garden of Eden type of place, where we can meet our Power Animal allies and find guidance and practical help, the upper world is a place where we can meet our spirit guides and wise elders who often appear in human form and the middle world is the parallel non-ordinary reality to our earthly world.

Shamans all had their allies, their wise ones often appearing to them in the form of animals or human spirit guides. They had learnt to trust implicitly guidance from their allies, going on their journeys into the non-ordinary reality as little children, open to being taught and inspired by Great Spirit. Shamans were also the magic man/woman or the healer, driving out what were often seen as evil spirits, and journeying to retrieve lost soul parts, now know universally as soul retrieval.

This form of healing focuses on my connection to Spirit and my Shaman ways fused into a powerfully healing practice.

I use many shamanic tools including breath and sounds, meditations, extraction and retrival of your inner power and your soul, drum journeying to heal both this life and past lives and the removal by extraction medicine of unwanted energy or spirit blocks.

Working together with Spirit, My Spirit Guides and my Power Animals, I can help you release old emotional and mental blocks, stuck energies, tensions and stress on all levels - emotional, physical and spiritual.

Leaving you feeling tranquil and at peace.

“Thought I would let you know I had the best sleep in ages. Thank you” Ivy, Croydon

Reiki Master & Teacher

As a Reiki Master/Teacher, I use Ushi's system of Reiki, which is a very simple, yet powerful, ancient energy system designed to take you on a personal healing journey.

Reiki roughly translates as 'universal life force energy'. The word simply means everything we are and everything we can see, touch and experience and more besides.

After a lifetime studying Buddhism, Shintoism, Shugendo and many other Eastern practices Mikao Usui, the founder of Reiki (1865 - 1926), developed a method of connecting with this energy. He taught his students how to use this energy to achieve personal enlightenment. Since then Reiki has developed into a very effective method of healing - on all levels.

"Thank you Alison for your treatments, I feel great. You make people feel better with your treatments and by just being yourself" Sharon, Crystal Palace

REIKI HEALING
This gentle, hands on, ancient form of healing uses ki energy to bring your body into balance and create harmony on many different levels, physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

During treatment you will be lying down on the treatment couch in a comfortable position, fully clothed, although you may wish to remove your shoes, belt or jewellery for added comfort during the treatment. I will ask you to close your eyes and relax. During the treatment my hands will be either gently touching or hovering just above your body. You may find yourself feeling some warmth or floating sensations, so just relax and enjoy the experience.

REIKI DRUM TECHNIQUE
The Reiki Drum Technique fuses together Reiki and medicine drumming creating an intuitive practice, which introduces healing energy into your energy field allowing blockages to shift and rebalancing you. When you bring together Shamanism and Reiki, the energy used during the drumming becomes gentle and more protective and works for your own highest good as with a normal Reiki treatment.

"Alison, thanks for the Reiki Drum healing. It was my first try and it won't be my last. Very relaxing and it felt like it really cleared some deep stuff. I feel very refreshed... thanks :)"
Megan, Surrey

Reflexologist & Foot Reader/Teacher

The art of reflexology dates back to Ancient Egypt, India and China, but it wasn’t until 1913 that Dr William Fitzgerald introduced this therapy to the West as ‘zone therapy’. Then in the 1930’s Eunice Ingham further developed this zone therapy into what is now known as reflexology. Through this she observed that congestion or tension in any part of the foot is mirrored in the corresponding part of the body.

REFLEXOLOGY
This gentle, calming foot therapy encourages the body to work naturally to restore its own healthy balance. This therapy can be used to treat arthritis, rheumatism and general aches and pains, amongst many other problems leaving you feeling buoyant, relaxed and restoring the body's natural equilibrium.

“Just want to say a huge thanks - the reflexology session has worked so well I haven't coughed at all today and feel 100% better without the need for any pills! Worth every penny” Clare, Upper Norwood

FOOT READING (SOLESTRY)
This therapy is used by Reflexologists and Psychics to understand their clients from a more emotional level and is used as a deeply insightful therapy to reveal aspects of the personality, helping you to identify the issues in your life to help you move forwards.

Just try asking anybody “how do you feel about your feet” and you will get a variety of interesting answers. Nobody, it seems, feels neutral about their feet and for good reason - they reflect how we are feeling

Many are amazed at how detailed a foot reading can be!

"Thanks for the reading! -It's very interesting reading about yourself and it being so accurate!!" Emma, London

Dates: 
May 2003 - Mar 2009

Crystal Healer

Crystals have been used as aids to physical healing throughout history and have slowly become essential to us in our everyday lives.

Over many centuries crystals have become known for their capacity to store and amplify any power source fed into them i.e. physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual.

Crystals are laid on the body during healing, held in the hands of the person being treated as a direct focus for them or they can be used topically on the area needing treatment. The colour of the crystal is also important as this will work with different areas of the body vibrations

Crystal therapy can be beneficial in treating both emotional and physical conditions and help to bring the body back into balance and harmony.

Jan 2000 - Dec 2010

Psychic Medium

As a Psychic Medium and Shaman, I am able to channel information from my Spirit Guides and Spirit using Clair-sentience (feeling), Clair-audience (hearing) and my psychic abilities to feel energies around me.

I have worked this way for many years offering readings to many seeking clarity of vision and a sense of direction in their lives, with great success.

"I was bogged down, stressed out when I came to see Alison. She has helped me regain my focus on the positive and see that there really is a great path ahead of me and encouraged me to take the bull by the horns and get on with it." Megan, Surrey

READINGS
I work only in the positive way, with total integrity and always have your highest good as my ultimate aim is to give you as clear and honest a reading as possible.

When connecting to my Guides and Spirit I will sometimes use tools, these include Shamanic journeying, Tarot and Oracle cards, psychometry and aura reading, to allow me to get as much information as possible for you during the reading.

Be aware that when you come to me for a reading, I may cleanse both you and the space with sage, crystals or sound before we start.

Readings are available as one-to-one and over the phone (Payment by Paypal, cheque or bank transfer)
