Cherokee Bodywork

Many Native American tribes had their own form of body work. Cherokee Bodywork  is a modality as taught to me by Native American healers Dr Lewis Mehl-Madrona and Dr Robert Crocker. This unique eclectic approach presumes a mind/body connection and includes an understanding of pressure point and knot release, energy lines similar to the meridian system, joint release and subtle body work.

 Cherokee body work proposes thatrocky at bodywork march 2013 ‘blocks’ can be released by physical manipulation and by attending at the same time to metaphors that arise during the work  – a physical pain might be invited to ‘speak’, or imagined to have a physical body itself in order to glean information about a pain. These elements are documented in the SWIMMER papers held in the Smithsonian Institute. 

Sessions 1 – 2 hours. Available Mon – Friday and some Saturdays.

Rate is $80 per session (sliding scale avail). Sessions are held in the beautiful natural environment of  the little Healing Sanctuary in the forest by the river near Warburton, Yarra Valley, Victoria. Sessions are also avail in Melbourne $90 and at various times around Australia.

ROMI ROMI

Maori healing & bodywork

Romi Romi is the deepest bodywork I provide. ‘Ro’ means ‘to work’ (internally), Mi means to stimulate the ‘Ha’ (breath) within the body to move obstacles created

Using breath, elbows, hands, stones and seawater, we open ways to get in deeper. The healing techniques used go beyond the tissue to the cellular NZ fernmemory to trauma or depletion that has been stored or held in the body. Deep held emotions are identified and brought to the surface that are linked to physical, emotional, spiritual and psychological problems. Space is cleared to allow for whole healing and transformation.

Profound release and shifts occur towards awareness, inner peace and multi-level harmony. Re-awaken your life force, let go of repeated patterns and exceed your previously held limitations!

Usually experienced on a massage table and fully clothed, it can also be done on the floor. My thanks to those teachers who trained me: Wikitoria and Arama.

Sessions 1 – 2 hours. Available Mon – Friday and some Saturdays.

Rate is $80 per session. Sessions are held in the beautiful natural environment of  the little Healing Sanctuary in the forest by the river near Warburton, Yarra Valley, Victoria. Sessions are also avail in St Kilda, Melbourne $90 and other areas of Australia

SHAMANIC JOURNEYS

Are parts of your life not working for you or is it hard to find purpose and meaning? Do you feel confused and a bit lost? Feeling you are not quite embracing or stepping fully into life?sunlight through trees

A shamanic journey may help greatly. Using drum, clap sticks or other percussion, we journey to the spirit world to gain insight and assistance for you. This may be ancestral healing, soul retrieval or finding your spirit guide/s or something else.

Going into trance state we (some people are conscious of journeying with us while others don’t) travel beyond ordinary reality to access information or people or animals or others to assist in informing and allowing healing or change in any area of our lives including family, work, location, home, spirituality and relationships.

It is safe and all you need to do is lie down and relax. Many people enjoy writing or drawing straight afterwards as part of the integration process.

For individuals, couples or groups. Sessions 1 – 2 hours. Available Mon – Friday and some Saturdays.

There may be one or two facilitators present – one to drum, the other to heal. Rate $150 (2 healers are working with you) for one or two people, then price neg for more people. Held in St Kilda, Melbourne or Warburton, Yarra Valley, Victoria. Also avail in other areas of Australia

ANCESTRAL HEALING

The experiences of our ancestors can impact on our present lives. If various traumas and difficulties including personal, family, cultural, national or international events, crisis, migrations, famines, wars, diseases etc were experienced this could be passed down the ancestral lines.

web-of-lifeA-550If there is something in your life that cannot seem to be resolved, you cannot seem to connect with or you have a sense that it is bigger than just your lifetime, an ancestral healing may help greatly. Even if you don’t know what the issue may be, just wondering if there could be some ancestral healing needed, could be an intuitive call to do healing on this level.

We can only do ancestral healing with the permission of your ancestors. Over the phone or if you email me a picture of yourself, I can tune in with them and see if we can work in this way. If yes, we will make a time, if not then we can either do some other type of session or it may not be the time to do this at this point.

Sessions 1 – 2 hours. Available Mon – Friday and some Saturdays.

Rate is $80 per session. Sessions are held in the beautiful natural environment of  the little Healing Sanctuary in the forest by the river near Warburton, Yarra Valley, Victoria. Sessions are also avail in St Kilda, Melbourne $90 and other areas of Australia

 What people have experienced:

‘The lioness removed many swords, sucked out poisons and she filled the spaces with light and her breath of life…she also cut ties with toxic past partners…all the missing parts of me I hugged back into myself. Thank you for gently holding me for my journey, allowing it to unfold and being so understanding of my non-verbalness. I feel very healed. Thank you.’

‘Wow. I experienced life and death and everything in between, in my body, in my whole being, I was left speechless, my rational mind trying to comprehend something so profound, so intense, so deep and complex, and yet so simple. After I came back, I left this power, this strange feeling inside me, that I was more than myself, that I was many, I had dreams memories about my ancestors, powerful women, who walked this earth, matriachs who held their heads high, warriors with doubled edged swords on their hips, I felt my grand mother in my body, I felt her power.’

‘Phoenix, you took me into a space where you brought me in touch with my ancestor, from so long before, the impact of that experience is still resonating within my being. I experienced the death of my grand father in my body. After 15 years, I had closure. Thank you so much for that!!

My rational mind struggled, and this is what it has to say….such a safe space, a space that my body and soul remembered from generations ago, a healing space that my ancestors are so used to, that my whole being responded with such ease, with such intensity, with such familiarity. your healing transcends culture, language, space and time.’

‘It is true healing that any sentient spirit would recognise and respond to’

“Thank you so much for your support and caring. I feel encourage to open again and shine.”

“OMG…. Such opening to everything that is real… Heart especially…. So so grateful to you Phoenix… Love love love xo

 

Hocoka

Hocoka is a Lakota sacred talking circle that I have been taught by two Native Americans: Dr Robert Crocker and Dr Lewis Mehl-Madrona. A powerful three round talking circle that can be held once, semi-regularly or regularly, it can be used for anyone anywhere, for instance just for you and others ie your friends, family, community, work colleagues, interested people, etc wherever you are (or in Warburton).

A person can also call a talking circle for a particular theme or an issue that any individual or group wants to focus on ie a celebration, milestone, a life change, illness, conflict, confusion, decision, community, team building …or just a sense that you want this to happen and leave it open and see what emerges.

The format is simple – an honest sacred space is created by the facilitator and a ‘talking stick’ is passed around three times. When the stick reaches a person they  can talk or not talk, saying whatever is there without interruption. People get to be heard, to have a voice, to participate in a circle without hierarchies, to get something off their chest, to communicate with the time and space that is not usually found in our busy lives.

We listen without judgement, we talk from the heart without planning and we open to inspiration.

‘When Council Fires were held or when a band or group made camp, the open space at the center of the circled tipis was called hocoka. It was a place of great importance, where the four directions, North, South, East, and West meet…By extension, hocoka is considered to be the center of one’s self and of the Universe.’
