Surya Layton

Lack of touch with social distancing is probably affecting all of us at this strange time, especially if we live alone. Hopefully online or phone support helps bring some emotional feelings of connection. But without physical connection through handshakes or hand holding, a gentle hand on a shoulder or knee to reassure or a hug or a cuddle we can feel very deprived. We need these normal physical ways of expressing support, friendliness , love and connection.
Surya aims to address this lack through sharing videos of self help touch techniques for de-stressing yourself as well as positive touch that reassures your body and helps you feel grounded.
If you would like to receive these free videos please email by clicking on the address above (top right).
The first one is on Emotional Stress Release.
In the meantime Surya will try to get them onto this website!


*Surya is also offering offline or online distance REIKI healing, see below*

REIKI
Reiki energy is a warm and loving witness to the body and holds it with total openness and acceptance, without judgement or agenda. This compassionate atmosphere gives the body the space to heal itself.
Reiki naturally flows from nature through the practitioners' hands to parts of the body that need it. The body guides this process and uses the energy in its own unique way for whatever healing or rebalancing is needed. The touch is gentle and either on the body over the regions of the Chakras or above the body in the spheres of the auric fields. It can be experienced as relaxing and balancing, healing and empowering.
Reiki, 35 per hour /28 concessions.

DISTANCE REIKI HEALING * currently being offered at the concessionary rate to all during this corona crisis until further notice*
Reiki energy can be directed with positive intention (and universal loving kindness) to someone even if they are not present. Distance is no obstacle whatsoever!
With your permission it is possible to dedicate an agreed hour when Surya will focus on you with full attention directing the healing energy to you for your highest benefit. This can be done off or online:

Offline
If its possible to send Surya a photo of yourself before the session it is helpful but not essential for this healing work.
In this scenario agree a time you can make yourself really comfortable in a peaceful room where you will not be disturbed, ideally for the full hour. You may wish to light candles and play some relaxing music. The invitation is to relax and to be receptive to the Reiki if that feels right for you. You may feel warmth, coolness, tingling or sense lights or colours or images in your mind or none of these things. It is different for everyone every time they have Reiki and some people are more visual, sensual, cerebral etc and that will effect the way the Reiki is experienced. As the session draws to a close. Take your time to gently finish before getting on with the next thing. If you would like to email your experiences or any questions that would be fine.

Online
In this scenario Surya can invite you to a Whatsapp session (or other video platform) at an agreed time.
The session can begin with a mini consultation on how you are and what you need. It may be possible to ask the body using a pendulum to dowse for imbalances that the Reiki might focus on. Then the session can begin as above, setting up a beautiful peaceful environment in which you can relax and let go. Surya will also have set up a similar space from which to give the session. The video call will run throughout with the Reiki flowing and Surya will be able to sense visually and intuitively how to direct it. As the session comes to a close, Surya can use a gentle bell sound or other agreed sound to bring you more into everyday awareness. Then there will be some time for you to share your experience if that feels right or just to abide in silence together before finishing the call.

Surya says...
As we are led by the seasonal changes following the Spring Equinox we will find our energy changing too. The night and day are virtually equal in length and light is gaining day by day, evident in the profusion of plant life all around us. Maybe our energy is rising and the possibility for creativity too.
Taking time to listen to the body, our own nature, and giving it some deliberate support will bring a deeper sense of resilience and inner peace.
Give it a helping hand with any of the above TOUCH therapies.

Relax and unwind with Massage in a nurturing space where there are no demands or distractions placed on you. Or stimulate your vitality with an envigorating Massage.
Perhaps you want a deeper sense of healing that includes all parts of your being through more subtle energy work, using Reiki or Kinesiology (Touch for Health).
All of these therapies bear in mind the whole person - who is unique and wonderful - who needs a compassionate hand to remember self healing.
It is so easy for us to neglect this approach in this fast paced age. But to remember it and honour it brings all manner of blessings.

TOUCH FOR HEALTH KINESIOLOGY CAMBRIDGE and ABOUT SURYA page.

HOME VISITS
She can also make local Home Visits on request for an additional 10 fee.
Surya knows how important it can be to receive Massage in your own home.
In the latter stages of pregnancy it can be lovely to be nurtured in the place you feel most at ease in.
Likewise if you are recovering from an episode of poor health and/or your mobility is limited then home is the best place to be. Whatever your situation, Surya is very adaptable. She has a background in District Nursing and Midwifery and has been present at several home births! She can either bring her Massage couch or use your home furniture to suit your requirements. She will usually talk this through a little before visiting.

PAYMENT
Payment is by cash or cheque (made payable to V Layton) and to be given to Surya during the session. Please note that Surya asks all clients that need to cancel within 24 hours of the session to contribute half the cost of the missed session. In some cases a compassionate waiver will apply.
