What you would experience from a shamanic healing session with Derek?
Initially, it is important to be comfortable with the person you're called to help you, so please contact me for a chat. Every session will be different as we are all unique and individual. An initial informal discussion will be had to clarify what it is that you need help with. Then you will be asked to get comfortable and relax, often on a couch or chair if preferred. Then, often with the aid of a drum, or rattle I will be guided by my allies, through the altered state of awareness, the direction of healing that we shall take.
Shamanic healing addresses the spiritual cause that underlies illness, dis-ease or difficulties. It can often help when conventional means have failed.
Within my practice as a shamanic healer, I offer the opportunity for you to reconnect with your true self. If you feel shamanic healing could help you, or you would like to discuss any aspects of this, then for more information or a personal appointment please contact me, Derek

An ancient form of healing, believed to have spread from Tibet a few thousand years ago and re-discovered in Japan in the early 1900s. Reiki is non religious and uses the universal life energy that flows all around us and is present in all matter.
This healing energy is channelled through the healer and into the clients’ physical and energy body. It is a gentle, relaxing hands on technique that is performed while the patient is fully dressed and all that is required of the client is a willingness to accept the healing. The client may feel a pleasant sensation of warmth, coldness or a gentle tingling in the area treated. A full Reiki treatment will last about an hour and is usually carried out on a couch.
Reiki is a natural form of healing that helps to reduce stress and induces relaxation, both of which are important to promote healing. As the energy comes into balance, stress and tension are released and there is a deep sense of relaxation and feeling of well being.
A psycho-shamanic practice with roots in the ancient Buddhist Chod practice of confronting and transmuting your self-identified demons. A powerful tool for helping identify blockages and issues and to transform your life for a new positive direction. You will be guided through this process in a supportive way
The holistic approach takes into account the person's whole being, and not just their physical symptoms or problems. An initial consultation will be taken, where the effects on the body arising from the environment and nutrition is considered. The holistic massage that I practice is based on the Swedish method but I use my skills and experience to adapt the massage to the individual and incorporate movements from other styles that I have learned. You should allow an hour for this whole body treatment. This can be adapted to focus more on specific areas, such as lower back, shoulders and neck etc. .
Massaging the feet to benefit the body is a very ancient practice with links back to the physician Ankhmahor at around 2,300 BC in Egypt.
Reflexology is a holistic therapy that helps to create a balance in the body’s system through manipulation of related areas mapped out on the feet. Not only is Reflexology soothing and relaxing but by using finger pressure on precise points of the foot, toxins can be cleared, endorphins released to relieve pain and the whole body brought back into harmonious balance.
A full session lasts about 50 minutes
Commonly used for physical ailments such as helping to loosen and clear earwax, vertigo and balance dysfunctions, sinus problems, I use them to work on a deeper energetic level where they clear and balance the head and can help with stress, anxiety, emotional issues and energy blockages. Deeply relaxing, they can be beneficial for the physical and emotional body.
Made from a fine cloth, beeswax and herbs the candles are gently inserted into the opening of the ear, and lit, one at a time, and burnt like a candle. A light suction action and the movement of the flame creates a vibration of air in the ear candle. This generates a massage-like effect on the ear-drum as well as the "spaces" throughout our head, the sinuses. It can, therefore, be beneficial for ear, nasal and head problems. The whole ceremony induces a feeling of relaxation and inner well being. The treatment is finished off with a gentle facial massage, aiding sinus drainage and balancing the facial muscles, helping to increase the benefits of the candles.
Indian head massage is a therapy that uses massage techniques on the arms, shoulders, neck, face and scalp. This is to relax the muscles, stimulate blood flow, create harmony within oneself and promote the body’s healing abilities. It is common for our stress to be held in our upper back and shoulders, often due to poor posture and work place ergonomics with pc's and desks. This pain often travels up the neck and into our head muscles creating further stress and tension. An Indian Head Massage works on the upper back, shoulders, neck and onto the head and face to release and relax this tension holistically to leave you in a fully relaxed and blissful place.
Indian head massage can be traced back to Ayurvedic texts dating back 4000 years. Originally, Indian women used the techniques to keep their long hair in beautiful condition and they used the massage movements on their children to keep them in good health. It has been adapted to western needs to include the upper body, the back and the arms, which can be a common area of stress induced aches and pains.
A gentle, slow, rhythmic massage with warm oils to calm the mind, ease tension and re-balance energy flow. Working on the meridians the aim is to unblock and remove stagnant energy and originates in Mongolia where it helps overcome seasonal depression during the long winter months.
Mongolia, the “Land of the Blue Sky” is legendary for its wide open plains and big open skies as well as its strong shamanic culture.
Mongolian Sky Energy Massage™ was developed in Mongolia where it helps overcome seasonal depression during the long dark winter months and brought to the UK. This treatment works with energy pathways to help rebalance the body using very slow hands on techniques.
Within the massage routine there are techniques from Mongolia and some principle features from other modern massage therapies.

Stone massage therapy has been used in many different cultures for many years. Healers used rocks from the river beds and warmed them either in hot coals or hot water. Specific heated stones are chosen and placed along the energy centres of the body so the soothing heat radiates deep into the muscles. Heated stones are used during the massage which can be deeper and more intense as heat penetrates the body and relaxes the muscles creatimg "waves of pleasure".
These stones are sustainably sourced from the North Cornwall coast area, combining the elemental energy of the sea and the earth to utilise the natural essence of the wild rugged shore.
