Herbal medicine is the use of whole plant extracts to help treat the symptoms and causes of ill-health. It was the main form of health care in Europe until the advent of pharmaceutical drugs. There is evidence of plants being used as medicine dating back thousands of years, and in many parts of the world people still largely depend on medicinal plants. Modern herbal medicine combines traditional knowledge and practice with scientific research into the therapeutic effects of plant medicine.

I trained in Western Herbal Medicine for four years, graduating with a BSc in Herbal Medicine, and was given an award for best final year student. My training included orthodox medical skills, clinical practice and a detailed knowledge of medicinal plants. I have been in practice for over six years, and have gained a wealth of experience in helping people with a wide range of both acute and long-term illness.

Neal’s Yard in Bath has a extensive selection of medicinal tinctures and dried herbs, which can be dispensed in the shop. If you are looking for help with first aid for minor ailments, you can have a short chat with me in private, and where possible I can write a prescription for you. If your condition is more complex I advise a consultation. If you are taking prescribed drugs, I choose herbs which do not interact with your medication.

Jon Bauer is a somatic psychotherapist and clinical hypnotherapist seeing adults, couples and children in the Bath region who are dealing with trauma, chronic pain, and general emotional difficulty. Jon works to help clients release unprocessed trauma that’s curtailing their quality of life, and also uses psycho-education and attachment-based therapy to support individuals to live a fuller and more nourishing life. The process is less about talking through the past, and more about dealing with it as it shows up in the body and in the present circumstances of life.

The process is becoming more and more popular and gaining a huge amount of respect as a body-oriented modality that brings about lasting change at a rapid but manageable pace.

Jon is himself very interested in meditation and mindfulness, as well as learning all the myriad ways to bring the body mind and life into balance and thriving.

Ottavia works with a variety of people including those who:

  • feel stuck, lack a sense of direction and meaning in life;feel chronically anxious and stressed
  • struggle with unresolved grief;

Reiki and Therapeutic Crystal Healing

Reiki is a hands on healing technique based on the channeling of energy into the body of the recipient. Energy is drawn according to your specific needs. While Ottavia places her hands gently on or above your body you will experience deep relaxation as a sense of peace spreads through you.
Crystal healing is an ancient form of healing therapy that uses crystals and gemstones to restore balance to your body’s energy systems based on each crystal’s unique energetic signature.
Ottavia uses both Reiki and crystal healing techniques, depending on your needs, often complementing them with pure essential oils to deepen the healing process and bring about lasting improvements. When appropriate she will also teach you essential self-regulating techniques and energy medicine routines to restore your vitality and provide sense of agency.

Qualifications and experience

Ottavia is a Reiki Master in Japanese Reiki and holds a diploma in advanced Crystal Therapy (FSCH Dip). She has a deep understanding of how attachment underpins both physical and emotional health and uses counselling skills for therapeutic purposes.
She is a registered member of the BRCP (British Register of Complementary Practitioners) and is fully insured for her therapeutic healing practice.

What to expect with Reiki and Crystal healing

Ottavia aims to create a compassionate and safe space where you can feel free to discuss your needs and be met with understanding and non judgement. She will listen to your story and based on her experience will discuss with you what she thinks to be the best approach to help you connect to a vibrant healthy Self which is your birth right. As a result of one or more healing sessions with Ottavia you will effortlessly move away from limiting beliefs of a constricted life into embracing and then manifesting your true purpose.
The first session usually lasts 75 mins and subsequent appointments are 60 mins. Ottavia offers a special package of three sessions at a discounted rate. Sessions are held at Neal’s Yard in Bath on Wednesday mornings and on Thursday evenings.
