Marc

Biography

Over the last 15 years, Marc has treated many people for physical ailments such as injuries, aches and pains, digestive complaints and hormonal imbalance, but his true passion lies in the emotional and energetic connection to imbalance and disease in the body.

He feels that the role of the Healer is not necessarily to heal people, but to decipher what the physical or emotional signs are trying to tell the individual, and to remind the body how to heal itself.

Looking at the bigger picture using the Ancient Eastern approach of Acupuncture and Bioenergetic Healing in combination with the Western principles of Naturopathy and Holistic Counselling, flow can be achieved, with blockages simply revealing themselves as doors to be unlocked.

Ultimately, Marc feels honoured to be involved with people's transformation, and to provide individuals with greater direction and freedom in their lives!

Sue

Biography

Sue is an Earth Angel: she is very supportive and loving and has been with the Cottage for many years as our resident Hypnotherapist, Past Life Regression practitioner, Pranic Healer and Reiki Master.

Hypnotherapy is a treatment that uses guided relaxation, intense concentration, and focused attention to achieve a heightened state of awareness. The hypnotic state allows people to be more open to positive suggestion in order to help overcome phobias, addictions, anxiety, painful memories, sleep disorders, grief, and self-limiting behaviours.

Sue also blends Hypnotherapy and healing in her Past Life Regression treatments to take you to the source of an issue that may have originated many lifetimes ago, but is still affecting you in this life time.
Old beliefs and feelings of limitations and blockages become stored in our body, mind and soul, and can manifest as physical imbalance, so this process helps you uncover the very core of the issues that you are experiencing in your life, helping you to access deep healing and insights.

Pranic Healing is an energy-based healing system where the practitioner scans your Chakras to find out where the blockages or holes are, then cleans out and re-energizes the Chakra using breath-work and colour therapy.
Pranic Healing accelerates the body's innate ability to heal itself, and has helped with a large spectrum of physical and psychological conditions, including: ulcers, back pain, asthma, migraines, mental illness, multiple sclerosis, cancer, and more.
During your session, you will also have the opportunity to receive Pranic Psychology with Sue to talk through whatever issues are being brought up during the healing.

Sue is an emotional healer and counselor who can balance the whole being for healing and growth in your highest good.

Sue is available any time by appointment - call 07 5500 4299 to book.
