Louise Knecht

Colonic Irrigation, Surrey, Woking, Guildford, Louise Knecht Having previously practised in Indian head massage and reflexology, Louise gained her I-ACT certification in colonic irrigation before opening her own clinic. She has also studied holistic nutrition which compliments her work in hydrotherapy.

My personal journey to a colonic hydrotherapist is rooted in my own health problems some years back. Having suffered for some time with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, which at its worst was extremely debilitating, I looked for something which would bring relief from my symptoms. This was found not only in addressing my diet in which I cut out certain foods that were aggravating my stomach, but mostly in colonic hydrotherapy; a therapy which turned my life around. This led to me decide to train to help others with a condition that the doctors seem unable to help with.

Michelle Corrigan

Michelle Corrigan

Michelle is a a Shamanic Practitioner with skills of Counselling and Gestalt Practice which together make this a unique way of working with gifts of listening, holding space, discovering patterns that are limiting, exploring the shadow or blocks, finding where this energy is stuck in the body and helping it to shift on, like shedding an old skin and stepping into a new one. Shamanic work is deeply healing and good for also bringing back lost energy to empower and feel balanced.

Shamanism is having feet in both the world of Spirit and the world of Nature � of plants and power animals and learning to walk in balance between the two worlds. Treatments involve some verbal dialogue and some energy dialogue such as Journeying, Soul Retrieval, Extraction, Tarot for insight and to explore archetypes and what is hidden, and receiving nurturing energy healing taken on the couch which is deeply relaxing.

Michelle's interests other than Shamanism are Buddhism and Yoga.
