Call of the Selkie


Energy healing is an ancient practice that has been around for over 5,000 years. There are many different types of these modalities still practiced in the modern world. The aim of them all is to restore wellness on mental, emotional, physical and spiritual levels. This is achieved by bringing balance to the bodies energetic systems. I have trained to practitioner level in TFH Kinesiology, Auricular Acupuncture, Emotional Freedom Techniques, Flower Essence and Crystal Therapy and to Master/Teacher level in various types of Reiki. The therapies listed below are all non-invasive natural therapies. 


Sound in all its forms is a powerful healer. During a session tuning forks are placed on both acupressure points on the physical body and in the aura to open up the energetic pathways where the life force flows. The sound vibration resonates to clear energetic imbalances and through the process of sympathetic resonance, you begin to sync with the vibration of Mother Earth. Crystal and Tibetan bowls that are tuned to the frequencies of the body are also used along with some hands-on healing helping to make this a truly holistic experience that helps to activate the body's self-healing mechanisms and increase well-being. Sound Healing sessions are beneficial in helping alleviate many stress-related symptoms, such as mental fatigue, muscle tension or pain, headaches or insomnia.


There are three types of Reiki Drum. One focuses on the physical body to promote deep healing, as these energetic vibrations increase heart rate, blood flow, brain activity, relieves stress and emotional trauma, boosts the immune system and production of the body’s own natural painkillers and accelerates physical healing. During this session the vibration of the drum and Reiki are focused on healing the intrusion that has manifested in the physical body. Spirit word chants are also used along with medicine objects and sacred plant essences making this a very powerful treatment. Another uses the drum and the power of positive affirmations to overcome negative mental and emotional patterns of behaviour that are limiting your life and can also be used to support goal achievement to enable you to fulfil your potential. During this session positive affirmations are drummed into the energy field to help you to let go off limiting behaviours. The other technique enables anyone to experience the ‘world of journeying’ that was traditionally used by shamans in ancient cultures for healing and divination purposes. This visionary experience into expanded awareness activates our imagination and creativity and allows us to bypass rational thinking. In this state of expanded awareness we can find new insights, perspectives and ways to resolve problems. During this session you can learn the art of journeying to meet your spirit guides in human, or animal form. Power plant essences can be used to enhance the experience at no extra cost.


Crystals have been used throughout the ages for their healing properties by many different cultures. They each have a unique vibrational energy that can bring balance to the human energy system. Although it is a stand-alone therapy this treatment combines Reiki and the healing power of Crystals to bring energetic balance to the seven main and some of the minor chakras. Balancing these vital energy centre's can have many benefits including, improved well-being, enhanced concentration, increased energy and vitality, deeper levels of relaxation and raised levels of consciousness.  Flower Essences are also used to support this gentle and natural type of Reiki treatment. 


The theory of the Five Elements (Wood, Fire, Earth, Water and Metal) is the foundation of Traditional Chinese Medicine and is used in Five Element Reiki to interpret energetic balance within the human body and mental/emotional functioning. During a Five Element Reiki treatment the energy is checked and balanced in the elemental organs and their associated meridians (energetic pathways). This focused Reiki treatment can bring harmony to deep-seated physical, mental, emotional and spiritual imbalances. Elemental Essences of Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water are also used to support this powerful type of Reiki treatment. 


This is the traditional Japanese method of Reiki in which the practitioner intuitively uses a number of different techniques including scanning the body with their hands to detect energetic imbalances, the laying of hands on parts of the body that need healing, gentle massage of the torso arms and legs to increase blood circulation, light tapping, stroking and blowing of specific areas to bring balance, harmony and improve health and well-being.


EFT is a form of emotional acupuncture without the use of needles and is based on the belief that all negative emotions are the result of a disruption in the body’s energy system. It belongs to a group of therapies that are known as Energy Psychology, which have developed from the ancient Chinese Meridian System. It works by clearing the blockage or disruption in the body’s energy system by tapping on the end points of certain meridians. While you tap you focus on a specific issue by using a special affirmation and carry out a few actions which stimulate activity on specific areas of the brain. This sends pulses of energy to re balance the body’s energy system in relation to that specific issue. This not only gets rid of unwanted negative emotions or physical reactions, it helps to gives you control over your own thoughts and the choice to live a life without limiting beliefs.


Flower, tree and plant essences have been used for healing purposes by many cultures for thousands of years. They are a safe and gentle way to bring balance to the mind, body and soul and stimulate the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Essences contain the energetic imprint (spirit) of various flowers, plants and trees infused with sunlight, or moonlight and preserved in Organic Brandy. They work by transforming negative emotional and mental states into positive thoughts and feelings to restore harmony on an energetic level. They are not used directly for physical complaints but because a person’s emotional state can effect their physical state, the elimination of stress can also aid physical recovery. I give all my clients essences free of charge after a session but you can request an essence via email without having a session for a charge of £15.


£30 per one hour session, or £50 for a 2 hour session (first session will be between 1.5 and 2 hours long). Fees are payable on the day in cash. For more information contact Rowan on 07951789763.


"When I arrived for my first session my mobility was severely restricted due to back pain and discomfort. I have a disability and the further reduction in my mobility was incredibly distressing. I was unable to climb steps without assistance. After the session I felt relieved and more mobile. On leaving the session I could negotiate the steps without assistance. I had further sessions - my posture, mind-set and general well-being have improved significantly as a result and several months later I am still pain free. I cannot speak highly enough of my experience with Rowan" (C Mc)
