Kate Gyngell - Soul Healing Studio

Kate Gyngell

Soul Healing Studio

Reiki and ashati healing

Kate is a Reiki and Ashati energy practitioner.  She is based in Gordon.  Kate grew up having a keen interest in health and well-being, learning about the inner workings and needs of the physical body.  After her 3 children were born, and on being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, this interest led to her business in nutrition and supplementation with a particular focus on immune health, energy and the physical effects on the body of emotional stress.

Over time, it became clear to Kate that the mind and spirit also have to be nurtured and healthy in order for us to be truly well and free of dis-ease. We all carry emotional ‘baggage’, which, if left unattended, can lead to physical ailments.

Kate has learned from many wonderful spiritual leaders and healers since then and on numerous occasions was urged to become a healer herself but was unsure which modality to practise in.  Finally, she was introduced to Ashati energy healing which helps to heal the body, mind and soul, expand awareness and higher senses, understand thoughts and emotions and strengthen the connection with our higher self and spirit guides.  During her sessions with clients, Kate also practises Reiki, balances the Chakras, clears emotional blocks in the body and connects with spirit guides and loved ones to relay guidance and messages.

Kate and her business partner Judi also regularly run spiritual and personal development circles.  These sessions are a lovely mixture of meditation, sound healing, energy healing and group discussion.
