Hello, everyone! I’m Elise.
I’m a Remedial Massage Therapist and I have recently joined the wonderful team at Naturally Massage & Wellness.
Can you believe it is already February? It doesn’t take long for our schedules to fill up, whether it is long work hours, family or study commitments, or the impending busy festival season.
It can sometimes feel as though there aren’t enough hours in the day!
One thing that many of us don’t account for in our busy schedules is looking after our mental and emotional health.
So often, we put everyone and everything else first, and then find ourselves trying to catch up on our own energy and happiness throughout the year.
This can leave us feeling stressed and can even lead to more serious concerns such as burn-out.
We can also experience physiological concerns associated with stress, including muscle tightness and pain.
Over the past few years, I have experienced many physiological and emotional problems associated with stress.
Thankfully, I have been able to make some lifestyle changes, including scheduling in regular massages for myself.
I love having this dedicated time in my schedule to help manage stress and look after my physical health.
I am sharing my experiences with you, in case you have been feeling a little overwhelmed, or are experiencing muscle pain or tightness that we can help you with.
Massage therapy can assist us to manage our feelings of stress, and associated muscle pain and tightness.
This treatment method has been demonstrated to help us reset our nervous and emotional states to better be able to heal, rest and recover.
Remedial massage, in particular, is effective in addressing many ongoing pain concerns, such as sore neck and shoulders, tightness in the back and sore legs.
If you think that you or someone you know could benefit from a massage, give our friendly team a call to discuss your concerns and book in.
We can help you to prioritize looking after yourself in 2020.
I look forward to meeting you, to help you feel better and move easier.

Before I tell you about all the benefits of Energy Healing I’ll explain what it is.
Energy Healing is a broad term for modalities that clear energy blocks in the body like yoga or acupuncture, or therapies such as Reiki, Karuna or Seichim that through the hands, send Universal Life Force Energy (Qi) into a person’s energy field and physical body. These later therapies are painless and just by laying hands onto an area of the body can clear blocks, and stimulate physical and emotional healing.
When a person has stored trauma in their cells (personal or ancestral karma, past life or current life traumas), their vibration is lowered. This lower vibrating energy affects mood and energy levels and depending on where it is stored, affects the functioning of the human body.
The human body has 7 main spiritual energy centres called Chakras (Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart, Throat, 3rd Eye & Crown). I’ll use the Heart Chakra as an example. If a person has experienced betrayal, was hurt, or was/is in an emotionally difficult relationship it can block the Heart Chakra so they can’t feel the emotional pain. This is both a coping mechanism and trauma. Over time this can cause physical symptoms – circulation of the heart to be compromised, heart palpitations and even heart attack. Emotionally it can cause the person to feel cold, be cruel & unfeeling, not understanding why they keep attracting emotionally stunted or immature partners, have trust issues, dwell on old relationships and grudges. Until the heart is cleared from stored traumas the person will not be able to fully give & receive love.
By clearing emotional blocks/stored trauma in the body it is freeing up physical energy to flow through the body by way of Meridians which is best explained as a mapped energy highway system throughout the body. Again, using the Heart Chakra as an example, when a person is experiencing a heart attack and the Shao Yin Heart or Pericardium Meridians are blocked you will experience pain down one or both arms. Hands-on Energy Healing focused on the heart can unblock meridians just as well as acupuncture can.
Is Energy Healing Widely Recognized?
Reiki is currently provided as a complimentary therapy is some hospitals, nursing homes and palliative care hospices in Australia, and around the world. Reiki is gentle, promotes feelings of peace and calm and can help with pain relief.
What can you expect from an energy healing session?
You will lie on a comfortable massage table. The practitioner will lay their hands on your body wherever they feel guided to. You may experience feelings of being very relaxed or you may feel heat on the area that is being touched, rumbling noises in the tummy, tingling or a sensation of energy traveling through your body. When a major block is being shifted from a chakra/organ/area you may feel an urge to cry or may have memories arise as the energy is shifting.
Straight afterwards you may feel deeply relaxed, emotionally lighter, happier, have more energy or feel like you just ran a marathon and need to sleep. In the days following a healing, your mood, feelings, emotions and realizations can be changeable so do observe yourself and take note of any changes you are experiencing. Every single healing session differs and is unpredictable in what can take place.
The benefits of Energy Healing include, but are not limited to:
- Increased physical energy
- Relaxation, peace & inner calm
- Decreased feelings of depression or anxiety
- Change in habits and addictions
- Decreased physical pain
- Releasing old emotions that are causing physical symptoms
How often should you have a healing?
As often as you feel the need to. That could be monthly or sooner if it’s for a physical condition or palliative care.
As a healer, I need to work on myself so I can be of best service to you. I’ve been self-healing and having healings for over 15 years, intensively so the last 1.5 years.
I have healings at least every 2-3 months and during this time have felt my physical energy and emotional well-being increase incredibly.
Energy healing can benefit anyone and everyone, from babies to the elderly, those in palliative care or anyone that wants to have a deeper understanding of, and to improve their emotional, spiritual and physical well-being
