Who We Are:

Natalie and James Bradshaw :

Natalie, I haven't taken western medication for over 7 years and have managed to keep my autoimmune issues at bay (unless I fall into old habits!) Even now with over 1000 study hours with many global master teachers and reading hundreds of books, I continue to search for and experience alternative ways to live at optimal health in this modern world. Going deeper into the layers is my passion, specifically in conjunction with traditional Chinese medicine, organ health, the energetic body and breath work. Sound and Reiki has also been a huge influence in my healing path which is why James (my husband) and I love to work together and create healing and transformational experiences which we can offer on a private basis, group classes, workshops or retreats. 

James,  I injured my spine in a car accident and the doctors said that I would need to start saving for a £20k operation to remove some of my spine which would manage the pain. The injury was affecting my life and somedays I couldn’t walk – this is where my journey started in looking for alternative ways to heal. I started regular yoga classes and very soon I regained strength, mobility and reduced pain. It was actually in the yoga studio that I saw a leaflet for Reiki and became very curious in how I could tap into my own healing potential. In the back of my mind I knew this was the tool I could use to help myself and others. It has been quite a journey working towards my Reiki master degree and the Wim Hof Method and digging deeper into the potentials of Sound Therapy. Collectively it has taken my own healing ability and what I can offer to a whole new level which in fact has recently helped me fight cancer for the 2nd time. Understanding Cancer triggers, how to prevent, slow down, and potentially cure with lifestyle and alternative healing methods has become a big area of interest for me and Natalie - we continue to research, experience and explore ways to help ourselves and others live at optimal health in this modern world.
