We are energetic beings. Universal life energy flows through and around us, and since ancient times healers have used various methods to strengthen and balance energy flow. Reflexologists specify that there are 10 energy zones or meridians, that run the length of the body. By stimulating these zones, reflexology releases vital energy blockages to revitalize and balance the physical and energetic body.
Good health depends on the balance, equilibrium and natural functioning of all body systems - something us biologists call homeostasis. Excessive stress disrupts this balance. The stress reaction aka the "flight or fight response" is a very primitive response to a situation perceived as dangerous or threatening, where the body and emotions gear up to either fight off the attacker or run for our lives. The issue for modern humans living these days is that we're not actually having to defend our lives, but our adrenal glands don't know that. So any time we perceive stress (think job with too many looming deadlines, kids never giving you time to breathe, relationship issues, etc.), a chain of physical reactions occur to prepare us for the impending catastrophe. And instead of being able to expend this energy, instead we bottle it up and repress it. Eventually, the stress buildup explodes internally and knocks some part of our system out of balance.
Reflexology alleviates the effects of stress by inducing deep relaxation, and allows the nervous system to calm down to begin functioning normally. Circulation is promoted, blood flow is improved, and oxygen reaches all of our cells. We are no longer activated in the stress response, the body seeks out homeostasis, and healing can take place. You experience a sense of well-being as energy pathways are opened up, and the subtle energy of proper neurological and circulatory functioning can do its work. The body is balanced as the seven energy centres or chakras are cleared. Energy flows and you experience the body, mind, and spirit come back into balance.
Holistic Aromatherapy utilizes aromatic plant material (essential oils) to promote health and well-being. These essences can be used synergistically to target specific clinical symptoms (e.g., headaches, insomnia, pain, inflammation, women's or men's health issues) or to restore emotional and spiritual balance. As an Aromatherapist I'm trained to know and use the organic chemistry, safety implications and therapeutic effects of each essential oil - The Science - and I combine them into synergistic blends unique to each individual and the symptoms they're experiencing - The Art.
Essential oils can have powerful and immediate effects on the human brain and body. By working with me on your specific health concerns, I can devise a treatment plan to help you achieve optimum health.

they are sacred messengers who encourage us

Aromatherapy Lymphatic Massage is a full body relaxation massage using essential oils specifically chosen to provide unique therapeutic benefits to you. It has a profound influence on your well-being by incorporating massage techniques to regulate the nervous system, stimulate the lymphatic system, ease muscular tension and promote circulation - incredibly beneficial to your overall health & wellbeing.
The lymphatic system has two very important jobs - it's responsible for clearing up all the garbage and debris left behind by our daily cellular processes and assists to eliminate those leftovers, and it plays an important role in our overall immune function. For many of us, the lymphatic system can become congested and stagnant as we spend a large portion of our days sitting, relatively inactive , and sedentary. The lymphatic system doesn't have a pump, and the only thing that keeps it moving and functioning properly is movement... and lymphatic massage.
As an energy worker, I also believe the lymphatic system has a role in our mental/emotional wellbeing - the mental garbage we need to clear can be just as important as the physical garbage. Personally lymphatic massage is at the core of my monthly self-care routine to keep inflammation levels down and clear physical and mental congestion.
Reiki - the Universal Life Force
It's an energy that surrounds us and can be accessed for healing on the physical, emotional and spiritual levels. Reiki (palm healing) is a Japanese technique for stress reduction, relaxation and energetic healing. It is administered by "laying on of hands" as the practitioner channels this healing energy into the receiver.
For those who haven't experienced Reiki before, how can it be described? Reiki always travels to the areas that need it most and therefore each person experiences Reiki differently and uniquely. It's warm, gentle, caring. It's unconditional love. It can feel like pressure, tingling, heat or swirling energy. It's peaceful, It's subtle, and the changes you'll experience will be subtle too. Most of all it's everything you need and nothing more.
Reiki sessions can be done in person or by distance.
Hi, I'm Sabrina Hall
Let me be a part of your path to natural health and wellness.
I created Holistic Essential Remedies to show you exactly how powerful energy and plant-based therapies can be.
We all need more plants in our lives! They are gentle and therapeutic, yet extremely effective in small amounts with no side effects.
Not only does a plant-based lifestyle help the planet, it can also help you to achieve natural health and wellness.
"I recently became a mom to my second girl and sleep deprivation was hitting me hard. Sabrina suggested a sleep blend that I could put on before bed that worked so well! The smell was so nice, and I felt so much more relaxed. The result was a more restful sleep and a less anxious, way happier mom. Sabrina is just the best to work with, as you can tell that she cares so deeply about your needs and your situation. She truly wants to see your life improve."

“I went to Sabrina for a reflexology treatment. I've never had reflexology before. It. Was. HEAVEN!!!! I highly recommend you get in to see Sabrina. I've also received an aromatherapy massage from Sabrina and it's so relaxing I find myself drifting off into a state of bliss much faster than I have with a traditional massage. An aromatherapy massage and reflexology session would make awesome holiday gifts for anyone on your list. Or treat yourself! You wont regret it!”
