When all the energy systems in the body and the external energy field (or aura) are balanced, one feels a sense of wellbeing. Energy misalignment or blockages in the energy field can manifest in a number of different ways and Reiki healing helps the body heal itself on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level.

Crystal healing is an ancient therapy that uses the healing power of crystals to improve health and wellbeing. Crystals have the ability to balance on all levels; emotional, physical and spiritual and when they are placed on or around the body, they have the ability to activate and support the self-healing process.
Each chakra or energy centre is associated with physical parts of the body as well as the emotions. Imbalances in one or all of the chakras can make you feel out of sorts and can even manifest as physical or emotional pain.
Certain crystals can help to restore and rebalance the chakras, helping to bring back a feeling of wellbeing. During a treatment, crystals will be chosen that are best suited to helping restore each chakra, bringing back balance to the whole.

PHYSIOTHERAPY & HIPPOTHERAPY
Physiotherapy consultations are available as required; you may be referred for assessment from other therapists.
Hippotherapy is a form of physical, occupational and speech therapy in which a therapist uses the characteristic movements of a horse to provide carefully graded motor and sensory input. A foundation is established to improve neurological function and sensory processing, which can be generalized to a wide range of daily activities. Unlike therapeutic horseback riding (where specific riding skills are taught), the movement of the horse is a means to a treatment goal when utilizing hippotherapy as a treatment strategy. Hippotherapy has been used to treat patients with neurological or other conditions, such as autism, cerebral palsy, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, head injury, stroke, spinal cord injury, behavioral disorders and psychiatric disorders. Here in clinic Ami uses Rocky the Racewood Simulator rather than a live horse.
COUNSELLING & PSYCHOTHERAPY
The person centred approach can be described as more of a philosophy than a technique. A way of being.
The approach believes by providing the right therapeutic conditions a person can activate their own innate healing capacity. The non-directive style understands it is the person themselves that knows best.
The therapeutic conditions can empower a person towards personal growth enabling them to be more open to themselves and external situations. Old beliefs and concepts become less rigid.
The process enables people to trust their own feelings and ideas more rather than relying on outside influences. They become more autonomous and seem to let go of fixed goals realising life is a process. Defensive masks fall away which can feel fascinating and exciting.
It allows people to become more genuine leading to less psychological tension.
