It is our minds that betray us. Your negative beliefs, programs, thoughts and emotions. Your body is so intelligent that it will give you the signs when it is out of balance. These

signs can be pain, dis-ease or feeling stuck and unhappy. These are simply signs that change needs to happen. Leanne asks your body for the origin of the issue through muscle testing or pendulum work, which both connect to the innate wisdom of your body. She can assist you to let go of what is not serving you and increase your heart connection and vitality. She guides you to understand why you have an issue and empowers you with the

tools of the awareness of the work and what you can practice every day to keep progressing and empowering yourself.

This work helps you to connect with self love and worthiness so that you can find peace, love and happiness. Hence, finding relief from physical and mental dis-ease.

Sigrid is an Energetic Healer, Hawaiian Bodyworker, Massage Therapist. Her deepest calling is to serve without ego, through her healing gifts and to unlock the power within all her clients to heal themselves. The combination of wisdom, intuition, flow and the healing art of massage profoundly harmonised with her own healing journey. The science of the body deepened her knowledge, as she witnessed how our bodies hold memories and how letting go of these memories can trigger a physical/emotional release which leads to wholeness and intense healing.

Sigrid travelled to Maui and immediately felt an unequalled affinity with Hawaii. She learned Traditional Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Massage in a month-long master-ship program with Jeana Naluai, a native Hawaiian Kumu. The wisdom, stories and chants Jeana shared enriched Sigrid’s practice and connected her to an ancient lineage of healing. The techniques of Lomi Lomi are effective and strong and as her knowledge grew, she decided to share, heal and

inspire. On returning to Australia, she began working at Sydney Ka Huna Centre. Hawaiian Ka Huna Massage clears energy blockages. Enhances intuitiveness. Encourages lymphatic and blood flow. Helps relieve soreness and tension. Relieves muscular tension through deep tissue and stretches. Incorporates sound healing. Reconnects the self to the soul. Allows for access to a deep space of healing. Ka Huna Massage is recommended for emotional hardships, re-balancing and integrating changes, support during periods of stagnancy and uncertainty, reconnecting to the heart, emotional grounding and linking the physical.

The benefits of traditional Lomi Lomi Massage, a re-balancing of the mind, body and spirit. Improvement in circulation and mobility. Flushes toxins and clears energy blockages. Works to the level of the bones where ancestor wisdom is held. Recommended for those who enjoy firm remedial style massage while also receiving the benefits of the relaxing Lomi style. Sigrid’s message, ‘With every client there is dance, connection, transformation and healing. The massage table is an altar where we bring our troubles, worries, fears, aches and pains. We ask the body what it is saying. We clear blockages. With aloha and care you

are guided back home to your true nature. It is in this sacred space that I honour your journey, your stories, and your connection to your ancestors, the earth, forests, sea and stars. I dance to live in the light and serve you so you can live in yours. Honu hoi with love and light.

Catalina Corrales

Remedial
Energy Healer
Holistic Counsellor
Reflexology
Shiatsu
Chakra Balance
Holistic Counsellor

 

 

From an early age, Catalina recalls a passion for healing. In the interim period she studied a business degree and worked in human resources. But helping those in need always remained important to her spending hours listening to the emotional needs of other employees and friends. Catalina moved to Australia and took the opportunity to study remedial, sports, Shiatsu and reflexology, which opened up a new world for her. Her clients recognised her capability to apply strong yet sensitive pressure and her talent for working with therapeutic conditions such as tension headaches, shoulder tension, lower back pain and problems with feet and calf muscles.

 

After eight years of experience Catalina developed a genuine interest in her clients emotional state. She discovered a relation between physical tension and emotional discomfort and so she began to study holistic counselling and complementary therapies using Australian Bush Flower Essences. Catalina also learned in depth the power of crystal healing, the chakra/meridian system and vibrational medicine.

 

Utilising her multiple experiences, Catalina created a signature Energy Healing Massage that concentrates on the physical, emotional and energetic states of her clients. The client chooses an aromatherapy oil and Australian Bush Flower. Catalina first measures the energy field with a pendulum and muscle testing. This process enables her to target and remove bodily tensions, energetic blockages, stagnant energy and pent-up emotions, via the body’s ten main acupressure points. The result improves energy flow and provides a sense of balance and vitality.
