Ala Iao, which means Spirit Self, is a contemporary healing modality based on ancient Hawaiian, Eastern and other Ancient teachings. It offers an active process for creating change by working with several ancient indigenous techniques all focused on a single vision. This brings your soul into alignment with Spirit in a fun and interactive way, to create more of your authentic self. The Ala Iao process begins with an affirmative prayer, including acknowledging Spirit within, Spirit connection, intention, limitless possibility, and the willingness to release negativity. A gemstone ritual follows to aid the practitioner and participant in working together to achieve desired results. The Hawaiian art of Ho`oponopono is then used to establish deeper awareness. Ho`oponopono releases toxic energies and assists in opening to the impact of divine thoughts, words and actions. The session closes with a shared meditation and healing work in Karuna Sound Vibration to incorporate sound and energy work to integrate the intended transformative shift.
Astrology & Palmistry
Astrology literally means "the Science of the Stars", from the Greek astrologia: astron (constellation; star) and logia (study of).. An ancient practice, astrology seeks the meaning and application of the influences of the planets, stars and other celestial phenomena in our lives. Exploring ourselves, our relationships and our place within the world, astrology has found that the symbolic relationships between the heavenly bodies are significant, and can be seen as a map to human destiny. Astrology sessions are a useful tool to discover & develop one’s potential.
Palm readings can reveal the right time for business, personal projects, investments or a good time to fall in love, to be alone, to meet people, to start a family and buy an hour- or wait and do nothing.
Australian Bush Flower Essences
Flower Remedies are not new. The Australian Aboriginals have always used flowers to heal the emotions, as did the Ancient Egyptians. There has also been a very long tradition of use of Flower Essences in India, Asia, South America and Europe in the Middle Ages.
This healing method was rediscovered by Dr. Edward Bach sixty years ago through the use of English flowering plants. Today our society and its needs are totally different to that of sixty years ago. There has been a great need for remedies that would help people deal with the issues of the 21st century - sexuality, communication skills and spirituality to name but a few. The answer to this need has come from the Australian plants, developed and researched by Naturopath Ian White, a fifth generation Australian herbalist and Flower Essence pioneer.
Australia has the world's oldest and highest number of flowering plants exhibiting tremendous beauty and strength, is relatively unpolluted and metaphysically has a very wise, old energy.At this time there is a tremendous new vitality in this country. This, combined with the inherent power of the land, is why the Australian Bush Flower Essences are so unique. Practitioners world-wide are now incorporating the Australian Essences to form an integral part of their therapy.
These remedies not only help to give clarity to one's life but also the courage, strength and commitment to follow and pursue one's goals and dreams. They help to develop a higher level of intuition, self esteem, spirituality, creativity and fun. The more the Essences are used, the more one is likely to experience greater awareness and happiness in one's life. Thus, everyone benefits....the individual, society and the planet.
The effect of these Essences is similar to that of meditation in that they enable the person to access the wisdom of their heart-truth, or Higher Self. This releases negative beliefs held in the subconscious mind and allows the positive virtues of the Higher Self - love, joy, faith, courage etc. to flood their being. When this happens, the negative beliefs and thoughts are dissolved, balance is restored and true healing occurs.
During a consultation, our therapist will prescribe a personalised flower essence that will help support and enhance your emotional and spiritual healing as part of your stay at Absolute Sanctuary.

Chi Nei Tsang/ Visceral Manipulation
Chi Nei Tsang/ Visceral Manipulation is an abdominal massage/ physical therapy that works directly with the organs of digestion and related connective tissues. It is a relatively deep treatment with the entire emphasis on making sure that the organs of digestion move and glide freely, while releasing both physical and emotional tension and trauma. It is particularly useful for sluggish digestion, IBS, bloating and gas, GERD, Hiatal Hernias, and other associated symptoms related to scar tissue adhesions (surgeries and C-sections).
Cranio Sacral Therapy
Cranio Sacral Therapy is a gentle yet profound therapy based on osteopathic, biomechanical and energy healing techniques. This is a holistic treatment which by removing blocks in the flow of “chi” energy in the body, improves the functioning of the body, mind, emotions and spirit.
We develop blocks in the flow of energy through stress, trauma (including accidents) and lifestyle factors. These stresses adversely affect our respiratory, circulation and nervous systems. Cranio Sacral Therapy aims to free the “breath of life” and help the body to self-heal in a gentle, non-invasive manner. Excellent for many conditions, including insomnia, neck and back pain, TMJ syndrome, headaches, depressions, women’s hormonal problems, digestive disorders, sinusitis, falls and injuries.
Crystal Reiki Healing
Crystal Healing is a treatment that helps re-balance a person’s natural energy state, helping them to remove any tension or blockages in their body and infusing them with pure, positive cleansing energy. It is a wonderfully relaxing session which offers a natural balancing and aligning of the chakra centers.
When a person becomes toxic, deficient, imbalanced or stressed, the vibrational energy in their body decreases. Crystal Healing allows us to re-align our natural energies using the power of the crystals and the natural frequencies of Mother Earth.
This is a unique method of using crystals and stones to work on a person’s Energy Field and Energy Body. Crystal Surgery works in such a way that through systematic, direct changes in these two systems, indirect changes are stimulated in the physical body. The session involves using crystals as a tool for healing. Each crystal carries a specific vibration, made up of its mineral content, color, outer form and inner geometry. By introducing appropriate crystals into a client’s energy field, they can help him or her regain the necessary balance needed for health and well-being.
Dreams contain messages & some of these messages can be very personal. The language of these messages are symbolic and every symbol has a code. When we want to interpret our dreams, it is when we want to understand the codes hidden in them.Dreams are riddles rather than statements. They ask us a question hoping that we search and find the answer to ourselves. Dreams aim to broaden our mind, to teach us what is beyond our comprehension. If a dream were to speak directly to our present state of consciousness then all would be easily understood – yet nothing would be discovered. A dream is by necessity a mystery. Through presenting us with what we are unconscious of, the dream leads us on toward greater Self-awareness. During a Dream analysis session the practitioner will act like a detective to analyse your dream and help you understand the hidden codes of the images in your dream.
Emotional Freedom Technique (E.F.T)
EFT is a modern holistic therapy proving to have remarkable results in healing emotional, physical and mental traumas at the cellular level. Imagine for a second that there was a simple technique that you could learn and use every day that released the huge electrical charge in your body that these traumas carry, which we experience as physical, mental or emotional stress every minute of every day. These unreleased emotions affect the way we walk, our posture, our mannerisms, the way our mind works, the way we interact with others, our intimate relationships - EVERY aspect of us. Every physical symptom or disease can be traced back to an emotion or situation we have held onto tightly and not released.
EFT is a rapidly evolving and highly effective field of energy-based therapy, bridging the often vast gap between physical and emotional therapy. Following a consultation to identify your core issues to focus on, Janelle will use this simple tapping technique with you to resolve your own unique emotional and physical traumas which are ultimately blocking your unlimited potential, personal development and success. EFT can be used alone for a single session or a series of sessions for optimal results and will deepen your physical, emotional and personal journey during your stay with us.
Releasing is a powerful technique to let go of mental and emotional baggage so that one can easily access a state of inner peace and self-love. During a session the therapist combines the Releasing technique which involves repeating sentences starting with “I release …..” with his clairvoyant abilities to assist people in connecting with their own guidance & in identifying energy blocks in order to release them. These blockages come from experiences in both this lifetime and past ones. The session addresses unresolved issues from childhood, dysfunctional relationships and past lifetimes which can strongly affect us mentally & emotionally in the present. Through releasing, one can get a clearer perspective of the past, open their hearts, welcome all things good, achieving a deeper sense of peace & overall wellbeing.
Living beings have an innate ability to achieve a perfect state of balance in body, mind and spirit. The purpose of spiritual healing is to enhance and empower the individual in finding that point of balance. The healer acts as a channel for healing energies to help bring that about.
Spiritual healing is a complimentary therapy that may be given for any illness, stress or injury without any side effects. No specific religious or spiritual beliefs are required. Similarly, healing recognizes no distinction of race, class, sex or religion.
Healing is not a magic wand that can make all well. It is a process that involves your commitment and although the healer will seek to work with you, healing cannot be imposed by the healer. A willingness to change is the fundamental requirement in the healing process.

Homeopathy is the second most popular form of medicine in the world and is excellent for treating acute, chronic and inherited disorders. It is a safe and natural form of medication which uses a tiny amount of essentially herbal plant and mineral extracts to stimulate the body's own restorative powers. Basically, all symptoms of illness are the expressions of disharmony within a person: thus it is the patient who needs a treatment, not the disease. Homeopathy aims to treat the whole person, taking into account his personality, lifestyle and hereditary factors, as well as the history of the disorder. Since all symptom patterns within a patient are unique, homeopathic medicines are carefully prescribed to match the patient’s individual condition.

Iridology is the ancient scientific practice of analyzing the patterns & structures in the iris. Iridologists believe that the iris reveals body constitution, inherent strengths and weakness, health levels and transitions that take place in a person's body according to their way of life.The iris is composed of hundred of thousands of nerve endings which are connected by impulses to every tissue in the body through the brain and nervous system and the nerve fibers respond specifically to tissue & organ conditions with a corresponding physiological reflex manifested in the iris as lesion & colour variations. During a session the Iridologist will assess areas of inflammation, acidity, toxicity, deficiency and circulatory weakness using the help of an iris chart and provide you with an understanding of the physical factors contributing to your health concerns, how past suppressions, lifestyle & emotional factors are causing your current problems and what you need to do to improve your health & well-being.
