Body Talk Release
Our body is always communicating with us; alerting us to any imbalances or blockages that require our attention.

Over time this stuck energy can lead to stagnation, pain and illness.
Using the body’s meridian system as a tool we can connect to these blockages allowing them to come to the surface. This process gives us the opportunity to express, process then release that which we no longer need to carry.
