RTT diagnoses what works with clients with the use of relaxation, regression and hypnotic conditioning. We know that clients are time-starved and come to us in pain, both physically and emotionally. RTT’s aim is to deliver permanent results in 1-3 sessions (90min) and a recording to listen to for 21 days. The client is involved with the therapist in uncovering the meaning and interpretation of events and then changes the perception of them, thus leading to PERMANENT, POWERFUL CHANGE.

Energy Healing is a natural and powerful therapy that works with universal energy force. It is based on the idea that we are composed of layers of vital energy surrounding our physical body. When we experience any physical, mental or emotional unease, its primary source could often be located within our energy field. Energy Healing targets those exact areas that need a boost of healing and initiates the process of recovery from the energetic layers down to the physical body. Energy Healing is deeply relaxing and helps to boost body’s natural reserves in order to restore physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.
An Energy Healing session lasts approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes. The cost is £40 per session.
To book your Energy Healing session call Ivama on 07784 486 565.
