Over years ago I went through a lengthy period of ill-health. I felt I had exhausted all orthodox remedies and was told by the medical profession that I just had to “amend my lifestyle” to allow for my ill health. I was only 26. I was ill, exhausted and depressed. However, “amending my lifestyle” wasn’t an option. I had a job, a husband, family responsibilities and a home to care for. There wasn’t any room for “amending” anything let alone my “lifestyle”.

Eventually, on one damp day where my mood and energy levels matched the weather, I stumbled into a health food shop where I was given the number of a Kinesiologist. I was nervous and to be honest, pretty skeptical before that first appointment but after seeing the Practitioner and applying her recommendations within 6 weeks I was a feeling much much better.

Now, don’t get me wrong. It wasn’t a “magic wand”. I had to make changes, mainly dietary and some were pretty hard. However, the results spoke for themselves and this spurred me on to learn more about how it worked and if it could help others in my family.

For several years I studied on and off around family, financial and work commitments. Training at weekends and evenings. Practicing on family and friends. I never had any intention of touching what I would call “real people” i.e. people who weren’t family or close friends, until finally, a fabulous opportunity presented itself to consolidate my learning and set up Health and Healing For All at the behest of my loving and very patient husband who declared ” you’re only really happy when doing that stuff”! In the beginning, I worked mainly mobile until settling in my very own treatment room.

In this journey to back to good health, physically, emotionally and mentally I realised that manipulating my diet wasn’t taking me to where I wanted to be. Yes, I was much much better than I had been yet I still didn’t have the kind of energy and vitality I saw others experiencing. Searching for something to complement my health and my treatment practice I tried Reflexology treatments and I found these brought about a positive change in my long-term health and were an excellent complement to the Kinesiology treatments. I felt sure my clients would feel the same way so I studied and qualified to ITEC Level 3 Reflexology with the excellent Athena School of Natural Therapies in the West Midlands (www.athenaschool.co.uk)

Baby-Reflex-LogoShortly afterward I saw an advert for Baby Reflexology training so I traveled to Dublin and studied Babyreflex. This afforded me the enormous privilege of working with babies and parents, including, should they wish to learn, teaching the baby’s parent’s reflexology techniques for them to use at home so as to extend the positive effects of a treatment session. Babyreflex is amazing for helping digestive disorders, colic, silent reflux and sleep issues.

My love affair with Reflexology continued and shortly after I qualified in Conception/Fertility and Maternity Reflexology at the Zen Holistic Training PREGNANTStudio in Warrington and since then I have had a special interest in supporting mums to be in their journey to a successful conception and beyond.

My interest grew further when I was fortunate to gain a place to study under the amazing Sally Kay and as a result, qualified in RLD (Reflexology Lymphatic Drainage) and shortly afterward I was endorsed by the prestigious Association of Reflexologists.

As my business was growing, I once again began to examine my own health and felt there was still “something missing”. Yes, it was a hundred times better than it had been but I was still getting the odd “flare up”, especially in response to stress. A good practitioner has a responsibility to keep up to date with new developments in the world of Alternative Healthcare so in 2008, in my search for that “something missing” I began having regular Bio-energy Therapy treatments and discovered that “Energy Healing” was that “something” I had been missing for all these years. So impressed by it was I that I began Practitioner training and completed my Level 2 Practitioner qualification in Bio-Energy Therapy. I can honestly say it has proved to be one of the best additions to my practice and clients, like I did, experience transformative results.michael d'alton

As time progressed, the more I worked with clients, the more strongly I felt about the connection between good nutrition and optimum health so to complement my other therapies I went on to qualify as a Naturopathic Nutritional Advisor with the Natural Healthcare College.

In 2016 my practice expanded into the Midlands  and I now offer appointments in Northamptonshire – if you would like to book an appointment in this area please contact me for further details by emailing me at help@healthandhealingforall.co.uk

In summer 2016 I was approached by a large company with a view to supporting their employees with bespoke “Health & Wellness” Programs. Programs tailored to the individual needs of the business and their employees. The goal was to increase turnover by reducing staff absence and improve employee retention. I really enjoy teaching and working with an organisation as a whole and as a result I have, since then, had the privilege of working with Highways England, AgeUK and the National Day Nurseries Association.

In August 2016 I was delighted to be accepted by the prestigious Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) (www.cnhcregister.org.uk) and added to the Professional Standards Authority Accredited Register of therapists.

In October 2017 after 2 years of research, I took the plunge and trained as an Access Bars Practitioner and it has been a fabulous addition to my practice especially for those clients suffering from deep-rooted emotional issues and/or anxiety. access bars

Many clients requested that I run group sessions or workshops so they could expand their knowledge and could bring along family and friends. From this came an annual schedule of workshops on topics such as Stress, Menopause, Mental Health, Crystals, Energy Healing and Tarot Cards-for-healing. You can find the current list of workshops here.

April 2018 turned out to be an auspicious month as mid-month I finally qualified as an Independent Celebrant – something I had wanted to do for over 20 years (I once nearly applied to become a registrar!) and now have the absolute privilege to provide beautifully unique wedding, vow renewal, funeral and naming ceremonies and then at the end of April 2018 I finished over 3 years of training to qualify in Shamanic Healing & Counselling which combined with the Bio-energy Therapy and in April 2019 I completed my Transformational Energy Healing training. Combined with the Bio-Energy Therapy, Shamanic Healing and Naturopath Nutrition clients are seeing transformative results. And, as any good practitioner should, I continue to have regular Energy Healing treatments myself and credit that with the excellent health I now have, free of “flare-ups”, however, busy life is.

In between all that I have added crystal healing; Tarot Cards-for-healing; distance healing; property/home energy clearing and a few other strings to my bow! So here I am, many years, one divorce and then very happy new marriage later, at 49, with the best health of my life and blessed to have, not a job but a vocation that I love and the privilege of working with many wonderful private and corporate clients.

If you would like to discuss your health issues, business needs or desire to have a bespoke wedding, funeral or naming ceremony, please feel free to contact me on 07889648238 or email me at help@healthandhealingforall.co.uk
