Dorothy, Tera Mai Healing
I am a local mum of two who has been working with energy for seven years. I qualified in Usui Reiki Level 2 in 2013 before retraining with Tera-Mai TM in 2017.
Fundamentally Tera-Mai is a frequency of energy that works on the physical, mental, emotional and Karmic layers of the Auric body. Treatments are all about clearing old blocked energy, transmuting stuck emotional residues and grounding the client back in to there body. The Tera-Mai treatment is a powerful therapy which boasts a wide range of benefits such as a space to process in going conflicts, pain management, emotional support, mental clearance, energy boost and relaxation. Tera-Mai is fantastic at supporting anyone regardless of age or background and helps to empower those who are ready to begin their spiritual journey back to themselves and kick-start their transformation.
