The client remains fully clothed in a session, and finger pressure is applied to the different pressure points with deliberate intention to move energy, clear blocks and support healing and provide an opportunity for peace and comfort. 

 

The Fusion Acupressure Method is beneficial for people experiencing stress, physical tension, lack of clarity and in need of emotional support. Each session combines talk therapy and pressure points to balance the physical body, the mind and the heart. 

 

Talk Therapy

Talk therapy is a deeply therapeutic form of verbal release that offers the space and time for you to express what your thoughts, feelings and concerns are. 

 

A modality incorporated in the fusion acupressure method, on its own allows us the ability to  explore your moods and behaviors in a safe and held space. 

 

In a session we will discuss what your concerns are, how you feel they are impacting you and what to do to move forward.

 

Its all about discovering YOU. 

 

What talk therapy can offer you:

 

-A deeper connection with yourself

 

-A fresh perspective on an issue. 

 

-A better understanding of you own emotions. 

 

-A way to learn communicative skills to express your emotions constructively 

All that's required is your commitment to yourself.

YOGA TEACHING • YOGA THERAPIST

Pellowah is a high vibrational frequency energy that helps us in making an energetic “shift”. By connecting the 12 strands of DNA ready for activation, Pellowah enables us to achieve an expanded our level of consciousness and awareness.  This enables us to take on higher energetic frequencies.  

People are usually attracted to Pellowah when the timing is right. It also helps us become more attuned to energetic currents and thus complements any other healing modality you do. 

Pellowah works particularly well on deep emotional issues which may be the underlying cause of physical ailments.  It also works well on those with very busy minds.  This type of healing gives clarity and often a client will receive an answer to their question or find a path forward while on the table.

Those who have suffered anxiety and depression for as long as they recall, and who had no sense of direction and purpose in their lives, are now living their lives much more fully, and are feeling totally inspired. People feel less attached and more empowered, along with a greater sense of inner confidence and strength. There is a feeling of renewed flow and centeredness as well as a greater sense of peace within themselves, realizing that all things are possible. Pellowah is an expansive form of healing.

SOUND PRACTITIONER

Gillian Taylor

Vibrational Healing Practitioner & Healing Sound Scape Architect

Crystal Singing Bowls

Sound healing, which is also known as sound therapy, has been practiced since ancient times. The concept of sound therapy is based on the idea that every part of your body creates a vibration which resonates in a certain way. Put another way, vibrational healing is based on the idea that everything in the universe - including our bodies - is in a state of vibration.

When your body is out of balance, diseases can result. That is, illness is caused by blockage which stops the organ in question from vibrating at its healthy frequency. Sound healing works by sending sound waves throughout your body, which brings harmony through oscillation and resonance. This helps restore your body’s balance which in turn helps you heal.

Singing bowls are often utilized in the course of sound therapy. One type of bowl commonly used in this regard are known as crystal singing bowls, which are also known as quartz singing bowls. Complimentary health practitioner's use of these bowls to have a significant beneficial effect on the healing of your mind and body, especially when combined with positive affirmations in the form of mantras and chants.

Some experienced practitioners believe that crystal singing bowls, when played in the right way, can produce the most calming and healing sounds. A famous oncologist, Dr. Mitchell Gaynor, used crystal singing bowl therapy on his patients to minimize and relieve pain without medication.

Aside from being an amazing practitioner, Gillian is also a wonderful friend supporting upliftment and wellbeing for the whole community.
