Mindfulness in Cannock
Mindfulness – Holistic and Relaxation Therapies
I offer training in the Cannock area. Mindfulness can help us to slow down our minds and help us to reduce stress and anxiety in our lives.
It is only in recent years that mindfulness has become the in thing! However it is just a word to describe what we focus on. Something we focus on with all our heart and soul without getting distracted by other thoughts or events going on. It is a complete concentration on the task in hand and total observation of our surroundings.
Being mindful is important and mindfulness has always been around. However, nowadays, most of us are so busy with the demands of life that we don’t focus on anything for long and with all our hearts and soul. Life is just so busy. We are missing out on precious moments that can make us feel connected to the world around us.
Examples of Mindfulness
- Eat each meal while sitting down properly at a table. Resist the temptation to eat and watch tv at the same time because this will distract you from mindful eating. Focus on each and every mouthful, really tasting the food in your mouth and experiencing the texture, the colour, the sweetness or the savoury taste. Don’t rush! After all it has taken you a while to cook your food so why eat it in two seconds!
- While waiting in traffic, rather than getting impatient about having to wait, look around at your surroundings through your window. Take in the people walking by, the nature surround you, the other cars. This will slow down your mind and calm you down. Acceptance of negative things helps the flow of life much better.
- Focus on any project you are doing with all your heart and soul. If you cannot get the peace and quiet within your home or workplace, then wait until you get time for yourself. Even if it’s only 20 minutes, you can focus purely on what you are doing and really enjoy it by utilising all your senses.
I will help and teach you to calm your mind by doing various exercises with you. While you are with me I will show you how you can do these things on a regular basis on your own in your own settings.
It is so important that you as a potential client finds the perfect fit for your therapies. After all you want to feel relaxed in knowing that you have made the right choice. Feel free to look at my client testimonials so you can make a well informed decision and hopefully this will then give you more reassurance in the treatments I offer.Matthew Hurd2023-02-07I highly recommend Karen’s treatments, she is such a nice, caring person.

My name is Karen and I offer Holistic and Relaxation Therapies to the people of Cannock.
My passion for helping others has lead me to where I am now and is reflected in my holistic work. I give to other people the treatments I would love to have myself and with the same caring approach towards everybody I meet.
My love of people is beyond compare and while I, like a lot of people have experienced bullying as a child, it has made me a stronger person. To me, it is really important to give to others and make them feel better in themselves.
This type of work is my purpose in life and I have been working in this field for 12 years now. I had a break for a while and worked with people with additional needs in the community for 5 years. I really enjoyed helping other people get the best from themselves. It was an amazing job but I felt that I could go as far as I could. Furthermore, I really wanted to get back into the work that I love.
From a child, I have always felt an instinctive need to care for other people. Where I lived in my street I looked after the children outside and made sure I did my best to protect them. I didn’t like bullying of any kind. I would get myself into trouble for sticking up for others by fighting the other kid’s corners!
Getting older, I was always the one who supported the underdog. Throughout my work life I have only really enjoyed jobs that involved supporting and looking after others. This work now that I do is my passion! I never want to do anything else. So be assured that any treatment you have with me will be the best that I can give and it is always carried out from the heart!
What the heck are Chakras or Energy Centres I hear you ask? Chakras are the invisible energy centres throughout our bodies. They are responsible for distributing energy to our organs, mind and body. How do we know they are there if they are invisible? Take a look at this YouTube video which will explain more.
Chakras or Energy Centres
As shown in the image the Chakras have a colour corresponding to the various parts of the body.
Red chakra is known as the root chakra. This is responsible for us feeling connected and grounded and is related to having our basic needs met. It is our security and safety. Its element is Earth.
Orange chakra is known as the sacral chakra associated with our various emotions, our creative processes. Also our sexuality and it is also responsible for compassion we feel for other people. It’s element is Water.
Yellow Chakra is also known as our Solar Plexus chakra responsible for our identity, our strength and personal power. Also it emphasises our self esteem and helps with confidence and determination to follow your true path. Its element is Fire.
The Green Chakra is known as the Heart Chakra associated with self love and love of others, accepting of ourselves and others, compassion and sincerity. Its element is Air.
Blue Chakra is known as the Throat Chakra responsible for our creative expression and being able to communicate in an open and honest way. Its element is Sound.
Indigo Chakra is known as the Third Eye Chakra associated with intuition, trust, meditation and being lucid. Its element is Light
Purple Chakra is known as the Crown Chakra responsible for knowledge, spirituality, connection with the universe, consciousness and fulfilment and is located at the top of the head. Its element is Thought.
When Chakras or Energy Centres are unbalanced, our lives are affected in a negative way. It could be physically, emotionally, mentally or spiritually or a bit of everything.
So what causes our Chakras to be unbalanced?
It maybe any emotional upset, marital conflict, relationship problems with others, eating unhealthy food, too much technology, negative surroundings, and more. So it make sense to get our chakras in balance again, we need to make some changes to improve our lives. For example: look at ways to improve our relationships, do meditation, practise mindfulness, eat more healthy foods including vegetables, fruit and starches, limit ourselves to less time on technology and improve surroundings as much as possible.
Once chakras are balanced everything flows as it should, the energy flows around the body in a smooth way and we are in balance in all areas of our lives. It is possible for just a couple of chakras to be out of sync. However, this can affect the other Chakras or Energy Centres so we need to help ourselves completely by using the steps suggested above in the previous paragraph, even if they are not all out of balance.
Powerful Reiki Therapies and Crystal Healing Sound Cleansing
This treatment is a wonderful and beautiful powerful universal energy healing therapy. I combine Reiki Healing Therapies, the added power of the amazing crystals, the chakra tuning forks that resonate with each of the main chakras in your body. I also use the healing frequency sounds of the singing bowls and the powerful vibrations of shamanic drumming. Clients usually relax into a beautiful state of deep tranquillity for the full hour. Furthermore the client benefits in many ways including being ultimately relaxed, balanced, calm, energised, happier and more. Each client always has a different positive experience which benefits them in many ways.
What happens during a Reiki Crystal Sound Cleanse Session?
For the effects of this extremely relaxing treatment, it is best if two – four weekly sessions takes place in order for the full lasting benefits that the Reiki and Crystal Therapy Sound Cleansing has to offer.
Crystal Healing Therapy
During the treatment, intuitively crystals are placed on and around the body of the client. This enables the energy of the crystals to stimulate the energy field of the client in order to restore it’s natural balance.
Tibetan Singing Bowls
After the reiki and crystal healing treatment, the singing bowls are used by gently hitting the bowl with a rubber ended wooden mallet. This then creates a frequency which brings the two sides of the brain into sync. It also creates calm and peace within the client. I use 7 singing bowls which each emit different vibrations relevant to each chakra.
I use a hand held shamanic drum using the stick to deepen the vibrations of the already relaxed client. I finish with a djembe drum which energises the client ready to wake from the deep relaxation state.
Using a Tongue Drum during the treatment helps to calm the mind and deepen the experience of the client. It contributes towards balancing the energy centres in the body of the client.
As you can see the above treatment is an extremely healing and relaxing therapy ensuring you leave feeling calmer, lighter and more balanced in your mind and body. Try this treatment and find out for yourself.
I carry out Crystal Healing Therapy Cannock for my clients using crystals and gemstones to aid in the healing of your mind body and spirit. Crystals are energetic structures which when placed on our bodies in various positions, utilise the energy of the crystals. These wonderful gemstones do the job of activating our own energy to help with the healing process. Furthermore this helps us to restore balance in a holistic way.
There is so much more interest in crystals these days. People are beginning to become aware of their properties and what they can do for them.
If you have come to this page, then this is no mistake because you are being called to work with me to develop your true self. I am now holding development workshops each week where we will aim to develop our self awareness and spirituality. These self development workshops will help you take steps to becoming the best version of yourself that you can be and we will do this together by developing self awareness and introducing you to your innate spiritual self which has been neglected by most of us.
My aim is to help you activate your virtually forgotten spiritual part! So in order to do this we will be carrying out different activities each week, working individually and as a group.
Details about the Workshops
At the moment the workshops are not running due to lack of interest. Therefore until I can get 5 people or more I will not be undertaking any workshops. If you are interested then please send me a message and I can put your name on the list ready for when I have a minimum of 5 people.

Do you struggle with the following :
Pain and stiffness?

FEELING GOOD OR LOOKING GOOD?
How many of you think that the answer to feeling good is just to look good? While this is a good thing as it does make you feel better to have your nails done, lashes etc, it is also really important to feel good from the inside too! So many of us neglect this part of ourselves. It is vital we focus our efforts into feeling good about who we are and not JUST the appearance we project to the outside world. You may look beautiful which is great but we need to feel this way inside too!
All the therapies on my website contribute considerably towards you making feel so much better. It is rare people go out from my treatments feeling the same as when they came in! An array of Crystal Healing Therapies, Reflexology, Reiki and more! Ooh yes and I also offer Gift Vouchers for the special people in your life! So there is nothing not to like. Self-care is extremely important so take time for you and honour what your mind and body needs!
Finally, I carry out all of my holistic therapies from home and I have a specifically built garden cabin which I call the Garden Sanctuary. It is beautiful in my opinion. Here I carry out most of my treatments. Equally important in the room next to it we have the Garden Room which is where I carry out the powerful E.F.T.Tapping Therapy and lots of lovely relaxing Meditations.
