Maxine O’Connor
Ground Force Angels

I am based in Feering and professionally trained in various healing modalities. I will be in the Wellness Area offering Angelic Reiki and Vitali-Chi Taster sessions.

My love for all things of an energetic nature really began when I had Glandular Fever aged 15, followed by Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. This period of my life was when my psychic abilities really switched on, eventually leading me to my life purpose. Energy healing had such a major role in my road to recovery.

I initially worked in Finance in London but knew there was more for me. I started to learn how to work with energy myself. In 1998 I was attuned to Usui Reiki, which majorly transformed my life. Our consciousness is now open to high vibrational frequencies, awakening dormant DNA strands.

In 2008 I was attuned to Angelic Reiki, a profoundly powerful and deeply relaxing energy system. I am a teacher, and practitioner. I absolutely love how every treatment is different, helping anything from sports injuries, assisting recovery from medical procedures, chronic pain, and stress, to opening up our innate heart intelligence and intuition. Vitali-Chi is like acupuncture without the needles. It’s deeply relaxing, and like all energy healing, assists with multiple physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual issues.

My work is all about self-empowerment, healing, and ascension.

Each treatment is tailored in response to the physical, mental and emotional needs of the individual.

With an intuitive and sensitive approach, guided by principles of awareness and quality of touch, Lucy aims to provide her clients with a safe, nurturing and compassionate space for healing and restoration.

The holistic approach aims to restore balance within the body and mind; taking into account the person’s whole being and not just their physical symptoms or ailments. Lucy is a professional member of the Massage Training Institute, the UK’s leading accrediting organisation for Holistic Massage.

Britta Hochkeppel
Vita Serena

I will be offering hands on and hands off energy healing from 2pm- 5pm.

Energy healing is a traditional, holistic healing practice that activates the body’s subtle energy systems to remove blocks and restores balance and flow of energy throughout the body, mind and soul. This technique works directly with the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of well-being.

Energy healing is used to treat a huge variety of medical conditions, especially ailments related to mental health. Just as you don’t need to understand the law of gravity before you can fall down, you don’t need to completely grasp the concept of energy healing.

I started my practice with Iyengar style & progressed to other forms Silvananda & Dru Yoga Teachers. I am a fan of Pilates. 

My Continued Prof Development training includes teaching Yoga for cancer patients, Mudra Mantra & Kirtan, Chair Yoga and Pranayama.

Further study of Yoga Sutras & B Gita.
I have practised Yoga since my teens and believe that Yoga should be inclusive and accessible to all. There is no need to be super bendy or strong. Gentle practice can encourage a fuller range of motion, promote balance, and strengthen the body as well as focus and calm mind and nervous system.

I look forward to guiding you to gently undo and unwind your body & mind using gentle movement and breathing. We will encourage fluidity and lightness as apposed to making ‘shapes’ and building tension. Nothing is compulsory and each person has the freedom to practice their Yoga in their space. 

Om Shanti!
