Insta life



Hey! Shellie here, all prepped and ready to pause alongside you & here I share a part of myself that you may not be aware of.

In addition to being the proud principal of HSD73 & having enjoyed a long & rewarding career in the dance & theatre world I am also a Reiki practitioner. I came to Reiki after being diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in 2003, this gentle yet powerful practice brought me to a place where i could live my life without anti-depressants & find the positives & joy in life once again. In short Reiki saved me after I had hit rock bottom & gave me my life back. I will be eternally grateful to my Reiki Master Beryl Vale of the Silverdale Centre for not only helping me find my path again but also for giving me the tools to then be able to help myself & others. Beryl Vale you’re a “Rock Star”

So, if you feel the need to step out of the busy pace of life, to quieten the mental chatter & the overthinking of everyday life then this SoulSoothe Session is for you. Not only will your soul be soothed but you will also take some very valuable self care tools away with you.
