Marilyn Stacey will demonstrate energy healing.
Linda Shaw treats both people and animals.
Certified Atua energy healing practitioner Marilyn Stacey will be among several alternative healthcare providers at the new Wellness Centre at the Warkworth A&P Lifestyle Show on January 27.
Individuals coming to the centre will have the opportunity to share their cares and concerns with Marilyn and see if energy healing could be right for them.
Marilyn says everyone has their own unique individual energy signature, which is formed as a result of how we react to life.
She says energy signature healing will clear blocked energy on a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level.
“This treatment will give you inner strength and confidence, leaving you feeling light and peaceful,” she says.
As with many practitioners at the centre, Marilyn says the therapy she practices is equally applicable to animals, and she will be bringing along her own cocker spaniel to demonstrate.
She says a lot of animals suffer anxiety, for example dogs when they are away from their owner, and this can easily make them sick.
As with humans, their energy fields also get blocked.
She says energy healing can calm them and promote other kinds of well-being, such as speeding up recovery following any surgery.
Wellness Centre coordinator Linda Shaw says in addition to energy healing, show-goers will be able to learn about and try several other therapies, including laughter yoga, BodyTalk and Taoist Tai Chi
Laughter yoga combines laughter exercises, deep breathing techniques and gentle stretches to reduce stress and lower blood pressure. Linda says participants will get to laugh for no reason and share silliness in a playful experience that “opens up the heart and soul”.
Tai Chi involves deep stretching, with a full range of motion and continuous turning of the spine. Linda says it’s great exercise for people of any age with many health benefits.
Meanwhile, Linda herself will demonstrate BodyTalk which aims to balance the body and mind to facilitate healing in both people and animals. Linda has worked with dogs, cats and horses in New Zealand, and elephants and orangutans in Indonesia.
At the show, she will offer a free three-minute relaxation opportunity for humans to balance their head brain cortices.
Linda says the Wellness Centre offers the opportunity to get rid of other aches and pains with a visit to an osteopath, chiropractor or masseur.
“It’s a chance to shift some old patterns or belief systems, be more relaxed, less stressed and more in tune with what you want your life to be,” she says.
The Wellness Centre will be located on the main field by the woodchopping and sheep shearing areas.
