The commonest reasons that bring clients to Emma for holistic treatments are issues like being in pain, feeling stress and tension, having problems with sleeping or digestion, or difficult circumstances like chronic illness, bereavement or life change. To understand what takes place in a session, the term 'holistic' needs to be explained first.
The basis is, that we are complex creatures with a range of needs- physical, mental, emotional and spiritual- and all these needs must be acknowledged and in balance for us to feel a true sense of overall wellbeing. If factors in our lives combine to prevent us from being able to meet our basic needs, our whole system will attempt to flag up issues that need addressing- and if we persist in ignoring these calls for attention, we eventually begin to experience physical symptoms such as pain and illness- the final cards our physical body can play in asking us to slow down, take stock and make some changes- hopefully finding a way of allowing ourselves to live in the true 'flow' of our lives.
So, clients might come along initially for a holistic massage to address stress or muscular pain, but through the course of their healing process, they may discover that their pain is actually due to a feeling of being trapped in the wrong relationship; or that their insomnia stems from a feeling of dissatisfaction and lack of acknowledgement at work for example.
During a course of treatments with Emma you might receive a combination of holistic massage, Indian head massage, reiki energy healing, crystal healing and therapeutic coaching- tailored specifically to your individual needs. She might suggest crystals which could assist you too. These treatments are unique and specific to you- so even if someone else attempted to mimic Emma's 'routine' the experience could not be the same!
Clients often become aware of other thoughts, memories or sensations whilst healing is taking place. Emma feeds back things which she becomes aware of during the treatment- this may be about a colour which is significant for them, a crystal which they may benefit from having, an image of a person or event which holds some significance for example.
Emma explains "I 'sense' how a person feels without them needing to talk about it. Sometimes this takes the form of feeling a persons actual pain or tension, and being able to draw their attention to where it is located. Other times this means I sense the emotions a person is feeling. I also pick up information about matters which people have not yet discussed aloud with others- sometimes I find myself sharing quite complex information which I wasn't even aware that I 'knew'. This information makes sense to you as the client and may be key to an area which needs healing. These qualities have obviously allowed me to work very effectively in a wide range of counselling, supporting and information sharing roles in the past and enable me to be a very sensitive and responsive therapist and teacher."
Although people generally leave after one session feeling lighter, more relaxed and fresher, treatments are generally most efficient over a number of weeks. So to sum up- when you come to me for a treatment or teaching- be prepared for much much more than a simple massage or training course! Clients will vouch that a treatments and training courses with Emma have literally turned their life around.
