Emma "I provide crystal healing, reiki and energy healing and a range of massage treatments from our therapy centre in Brightlingsea. I teach reiki & baby massage and yoga and make various items of decorative art and jewellery- I select the various crystals and gifts for our shop on the basis that if I'd appreciate being given it- I think you'll be happy to receive it too!

I am fully qualified and insured to provide holistic massage and reiki treatments and courses. I became a reiki master/teacher in 2006 and an infant massage and yoga instructor in 2011.

Prior to training as a holistic therapist, I spent more than fifteen years setting up volunteer recruitment, peer support and health promotion projects for various charities. I have crisis counselled, created and run training courses and health promotion campaigns and produced a wealth of health related literature.

I was drawn to the idea of natural healing from an early age. I firmly believe in the power of positive thought and manifestation- we each have the ability to 'create' our own reality. When we tap into positive energy our ability to improve our physical, mental and emotional well-being is limitless. I really want to share this with you!

I am a creative, spiritual person with a strong sense of intuition. Throughout my work, this has given me the ability to help people see circumstances from a new and creative perspective. I look forward to helping you too!"
