Energy Therapist; Massage, Reiki, Sound & Intuitive Therapy
Hi, my name is Krysty, I also go by “Beloved”! I started working with Reiki in 2006 while living in Winnipeg. After attaining Master level in both Usui and Karuna styles, I took Elemental Shamanism. When I moved to the heartland of Alberta, I began studying and becoming certified in Mental Health Counselling, using these skills for life coaching and intuitive/spiritual counselling. After coming to Victoria, I became certified in Healing Massage and immediately began practising all my services as ‘integrated’; I use intuition in my energy healing and light work, and trust clients to know what services they need. I am privileged to stand next to clients as they make their way down the crazy path of Life, and fee! It will never be about money, and will always be about doing what I love for my living. Everyone deserves healing!
Annette Magled – Intuitive Holistic Therapy
Integrated therapy simply means a combination of therapies as in a complete, consolidated integrated package of healing services. What services are we talking about? I have always loved learning about the body and mind connection and so began a life long exploration. My first love was psychology and observing the effect of our thoughts on our well-being and our most basic relationship (with ourselves,) this led me to counselling and meditation. I then studied massage, reflexology, cranial sacral therapy, and reiki, as well as homeopathy and nutrition. I later did my yoga therapy teacher training and
focused on sleep therapy. So you see my multiple skill set has enabled me to develop a wide perspective
and thereby hone my intuition. I practice reading your body’s energetic field and help shift the imbalances or remove blockages. Since I am guided by intuition each visit is unique and catered to your needs at the time.
Integrated Therapy can help with:
- Symptoms of anxiety and depression
- Headaches and migraines
- Body aches and pains
Live Blood Analysis, Master Herbalist & Spiritual Intuitive
I bring a background that is a medley of Shamanism, mysticism, science and eclectic exploration. I am an ardent advocate for aligning emotions, spirit and biology. Practical, directive and inspirational, I bring clarity through connection. I wiggle you out of the rabbit holes and tame your monkeys.
“Let’s dance with your shadows as you dance with your light, as they are the gift of your humanity!”
I am passionate about the language of blood and dedicated to understanding the depth of its offerings. My practice includes Live and Dry Blood Analysis, and also encompasses Ontological Coaching and Spiritual Intuitive Readings. When asked how these all work together, my answer is how can they not? Blood is our soul signature. How we work with all these aspects of our intrinsic natured selves is the key and I continue to be in awe.
Biological medicine considers that the internal balance is essential to optimal health. Each and every nuance of our biology is an expression of an emotion. Once we translate the messages, healing is possible.
Dr. Kym Harvey
Dr. Kym Harvey provides Chiropractic services to families, pregnant women, infants and children, the elderly, and athletes. Chiropractic adjustments are gentle and effective at relieving many problems including:
- back pain
- neck pain
- carpal tunnel
- joint pain in the extremities
As well as spinal adjustments, she offers individualized stretches and exercises to help correct problems in posture and muscle imbalance that can be done right at home, work or even in the car. Low force techniques, such as Activator, Sacral Occipital Technique, mobilization and soft tissue techniques are also performed during treatments.
Lifestyle and nutritional counselling is also part of Chiropractic. Ways to decrease stress, improve sleep and promote overall health will be discussed.
Craniosacral Therapy, Neural Manipulation and Visceral Manipulation are key elements in unwinding and releasing old pain. Connective tissue of the body called fascia and similar to that the glial matrix of the brain present the continuous mapping that guides me in accessing and addressing vascular, structural and neurological conditions. Because of the continuous nature of the connective tissue, no distortion or imbalance can remain localized consequently treating one area can facilitate change in other parts of the body.
These light touch manual therapies affect the body deeply by restoring the communication highways and improving the natural fluid rhythms inherent in the condensing and expansion phrases of every function of the body . Coherent rhythms assist the healing dynamics of all of systems of the body including emotional and mental balance and sleep.
I have 30 years of experience helping people from all walks of life with a myriad of physical, emotional and psychological pain.
