Sinéad de Hora: Intuitive Counsellor

Based on her power of intuition, Sinéad can gain a clear understanding of her client's concerns along with creating a deep emotional connection with them, which she uses to tailor-make a specific treatment. While no two treatments are ever the same, they all follow a natural structure that flows from one focus to the next. Sinéad will start by reading a client’s energy, channelling her energy into theirs so that she can feel exactly what they are feeling on both an emotional and physical level. She will then determine her treatment based on each specific client. Targeted massage techniques, energy healing and a combination of alternative therapies will complement the treatment helping the client to instantly relax, realign with the inner self and identify with the positivity that Sinéad encourages. An experience with Sinéad helps rationalise thoughts, calms and provides effective coping strategies that Sinéad has seen through visions in order to balance and enhance her clients’ lives. Through over ten years of study, Sinéad has gained knowledge from multiple disciplines and incorporates them in her practice today, from studying Ayurveda Philosophy, Chinese Philosophy, Reiki, Reflexology, various therapeutic massage techniques and more.

Steve Karle: Aquatic Bodywork Specialist and Craniosacral Therapist

Steve is director of the British School of Aquatic Bodywork and founder of Poetry in Water® - a unique approach to movement and bodywork in warm water. After a thorough movement and postural assessment in water in which he assesses body type, movement style and structural needs, Steve guides clients into a floating position from which point he allows the body to “flow” - the water allowing fluid movements that wouldn’t be possible on land. In this way he is able to re-educate the muscle memory as well as work with issues that affect natural movement, such as holding patterns, emotional issues and trauma stored in the body. In working with the body he works on all aspects of the person.

Louka Leppard: Tulayoga and Meditation in Touch Specialist akasha holistic wellbeing centre hotel cafe royal londonExpand

Louka Leppard: Tulayoga and Meditation in Touch Specialist

Louka’s experience in the field of bodywork spans over 20 years during which time he has created two meditative practices of his own, Tulayoga and Meditation in Touch. Focusing on timing, rhythm, melody and movement, the treatments bring together aspects of understanding and practice from yoga, acrobatics and meditation. Whilst floating and being held by Louka in 22 different postures, the body’s heart rate and blood pressure lowers, mobility is increased, the spine is lengthened and a natural alignment is encouraged. The combination of floating whilst being balanced and moved through space allows all sense of responsibility, direction, dimension, and notion of time to be freed, and for many people it is a unique and timeless experience.
