During the 1990s Patricia experienced panic attacks and symptoms of debilitating vertigo and neck pain. Thanks to Amatsu (Japanese Osteopathic treatment), she regained full health; this awakened her passion for complementary health, energy healing and self-help.
Patricia trained in Amatsu and practiced this for almost 20 years. Meanwhile, Patricia also trained in many other forms of healing including Reiki, Integrated Energy Healing and Healing Massage.
Recently, Patricia has re-evaluated her life and focused on coming to terms with haven just come through breast cancer, she considers herself very lucky to be alive. In total she took 18 months off practicing all healing work (a year of this was spent undergoing gruelling medical treatment). After the medical treatments ended she still needed many months of recuperation to regain emotional and physical strength. However, she is very grateful for all the life-saving medical treatments and compassion she encountered throughout her fight to save her life. Energy healing, friendship and prayers have played enormously supportive roles in her recovery. In particular, Patricia found Reiki and energy healing gave her comfort, strength and hope during the dark times of terror, suffering and despair. Patricia believes that complementary health can be a helpful adjunct to medical care once the complementary treatments do not interfere or counteract the medical approaches. Patricia would like a bridge to be built between complementary medicine and orthodox scientific medical care as the two in co-operation can increase health and quality of life. Earlier this year Patricia received the all clear following a mammogram and ct scan. Patricia is living proof that life can improve even when things look very bleak.
Patricia is now ready to return to her healing work. However, her approach has changed. She will no longer practice Amatsu but instead is happy to offer healing treatments which balance the energy flows of the body, enhance recovery from illness, help with relaxation and stress release and give support through life’s difficulties. She believes her own brush with mortality has given her more compassion and a feeling that simply being present with the Client rather than giving advice is important. Patricia does not give channelled messages in her healing, she focuses on being a conduit of healing energy and allowing the Client navigate their own unique journey in life.
Patricia also has a passion for art. She believes creative pursuits are healing for the mind and the body. Patricia has benefited greatly from using her art as a therapeutic tool for overcoming her own recent health trauma.
