Melissa Goodman – Certified Energy Healer and Teacher
Hi! I'm Melissa. I am a yoga teacher, energy healer and eternal student always eager to learn and deepen my knowledge. I am passionate and love studying anatomy, physiology, the energy field and the interaction and influence all aspects of our environment have on our health. I also understand the value in what is learnt through experience and integrate teachings into my work from my experience in ceremony as well as Spirit Quests that have lead through the Southwest USA, Central and South America.
Before I became a healer my life was all about hair, nails and makeup, going out for drinks and shopping... but I always felt there was something missing and in 2003 while working as an aesthetician I started the search for the missing link.
I first came across Aromatherapy for Face & Body, Reflexology and Ear Candling as extras in my aesthetic training, needless to say I was instantly intrigued and wanted to know more. You know those moments in life when you feel the right door open? This was the door for me. I continued to follow the doors that were opening and soon found myself studying Reiki, Akashic Records, Nutrition and Shamanic Healing with Native Elders.
Have you ever felt like you are getting closer but what you are reaching for is just outside your reach? Through all of my experiences I could feel that there was something else I needed to invite into my life to tie everything together…and I found it with Yoga. The first time I stepped onto the mat was to help relieve stiffness in my neck and shoulders from a car accident as well as the stiffness that comes with weight training and running. Years of dance had left my pelvis unbalanced which caused problems in my hips and knees.
Do you remember your first yoga class? I will never forget mine. I stepped off of my mat feeling like I was floating, I felt balanced, calm and excited that I was fortunate enough to find this wonderful healing technique. It has been over 11 years since my first experience and I still find I step off of my mat with the same gratitude today.
When I felt that push to align my professional path with my heart I was already on my way to becoming a Reiki Master and Yoga Teacher. I left behind the spa life and found the missing link…healing through vibrational and energetic awareness.
Yoga is my grounding factor and I find an effortless connection between Yoga and energy healing including Reiki, BodyTalk, Access Consciousness, Essential Oils and Crystals. I have taken all that I have learnt and blended it together which allows me to meet you where you are in your journey.
Over the years I have studied with wonderful teachers who’s light and wisdom has forever reshaped my life. This path continues to feed my curiosity and life long interest of the human body and all that lies beyond what we can see...energy and intuition. It has lead me through my own healing journey as I have reclaimed balance in my body and freedom from stiffness. I have learnt on a very deep level who I am as wounds from the past have been healed. I have experienced the freedom from breaking the cycle of unconscious patterns and freeing my spirit. This healing has opened my eyes to the true potential of the human body and the innate wisdom that lies within.
I work to help people return home to themselves. Do you ever feel stiff or unbalanced? Does your mind constantly chatter? Do you feel like you are stuck day after day with the same patterns that are keeping you from reaching your full potential? I would love to work with you. I help guide you to find your inner peace, uncovering and connecting to your intuition as walls of illusion are removed along with perceived blocks allowing healing to enter through each layer, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Every step you take down the healing path your light shines brighter, illuminating your world.
Reiki Energy Healing
Ancient Japanese energy healing. Feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that surrounds and fills you, creating deep feelings of relaxation, peace and well-being. Especially helpful with pain, sleep, stress, emotional balancing.
Sound healing uses vibrational tools (singing bowls or tuning forks) to help the body restore balance, increase energy and gently draw you into a meditative state. Sound healing creates a frequency and vibration that gives the body a massage all the way down to the cellular level.
There are 32 point on your head which hold thoughts, feelings, emotions and beliefs that store information from all your lifetimes. When these points are gently touched it dissipates the energetic charge allowing you to release blocks, opening you up to new opportunities and possibilities. Having your bars run can help with anything from relationships, money, stress levels, self sabotaging behaviours, sleep and health.
This technique address trapped emotions, which often show up as unseen baggage that you carry. These trapped emotions can show up in several ways whether it be patterns, beliefs, dis-ease or blocks. By removing the emotions it frees up limitations, self-sabotaging behaviours and can help relieve aches and pains.
Chakras are the energy conduits in the physical body, which connects the subtle bodies (emotional, mental & spiritual) to the physical body. They receive, assimilate, and express life force energy. Chakras are constantly rotating and vibrating. When one or more of the chakras are blocked, the energy does not flow harmoniously, or if they are too open, it will result an energy imbalance. Chakra balancing promotes health by regulating and maximizing the flow of energy in the body.
