The Touching Mum

I have received the following testimonial and please understand that we don’t reveal who it is from.
It is so touching and very, very personal.

Healing happens through divine intervention and grace and know that ‘All Healing is within YOU.’ Sylvia Shirley

From the Touching Mum:
I would love to help others through the pain and heartache I went through…There is hope at the end of it all, you just have to believe it xxx

I came to Sylvia after a failed IVF cycle. My body was physically sore where I had been poked and prodded and my heart was broken. I felt lost and alone and had lost my belief in it ever working out. I rang Sylvia as I had heard Reiki was good to help healing my physical pain and I felt I needed help relaxing. Little did I know that once I walked through her door my spirit would also begin to heal. We sat for hours talking through everything, crying, discussing how we would work on getting me back to who I was before and most importantly getting me back to believing this was going to work out. Sylvia always makes you feel like she has all of the time in the world for you and you are her main focus. I found the Reiki sessions amazing, like I was in a trance with Sylvia healing me as I floated in a relaxing state. I felt incredible heat in my mid section as she healed the physical pain (which disappeared over night after the first session). I felt her clear away all the worries in my head until all I could see when I closed my eyes was a blank white sheet. As I undertook my next IVF cycle I felt she was always with me in the back of my mind, keeping me calm. The times in the previous cycle where doubt clouded my mind- instead I heard Sylvia’s voice telling me to believe. She could see my little girl waiting for us. It really helped me to focus on her belief which in turn became my belief and low and behold my precious little girl did come along. As I hold my baby girl, I am forever grateful to Sylvia for helping me through that difficult time in my life and yes, I believe, for helping to bring my daughter and I together x

Red hearts I have been involved with energy healing for over 25 years and I have found Sylvia to be one of the absolute best practitioners that I have ever experienced. She is a rare find. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable, but very intuitive as well. She is able to balance her vast expertise with an innate ability to know what is best suited to personalize a session uniquely tailored to your needs. She works first and foremost from the heart. You will find yourself in good hands, I know I did. Sylvia has been a beautiful blessing to my life.

Dear Sylvia,
I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you so much. I really wasn’t sure what to expect when I came to your meditation and sound healing class. I have suffered from post natal anxiety since the birth of my wee child in April. I have found sleeping particularly difficult. Last night I had the best quality sleep I’ve had in 6 months. I only got 4 hours until my child woke but even after that I felt fully rested and calmer than I have for ages. Thank you. It is such a relief to know that it is still possible to obtain such a deep level of relaxation. I feel more connected to myself and less stressed than I have for a very long time. I will definitely come back.
With every good wish,
H.

I feel rejuvenation and overall relaxed. Sylvia is trustworthy and professional; she will look after your mind, body and soul. We all need a little tender loving care.

Love-heart-foto-150x116I discovered Sylvia Shirley in July 2015 at a point in my life where I felt so very very low and I needed support and understanding. I booked in for a Reiki treatment and some healing through conversation.
I met an absolute star who gave  me support and helped me on a journey to relax and believe and to be me and helped me raise up from the lowest place.
I felt my head and my heart begin to focus and and the hurt and fear clear away. Through Reiki and meditation ( I never thought I could meditate) I have found my heart and my faith again and a calm in myself and I can now say I love myself.

So Thank You Sylvia You are a Blessing.

WellnessWhen my body & mind need time out and get back on track I know that a treatment from Sylvia is needed. Her Dr. Hauschka facial is my regular treat but be assured that all treatments from Sylvia are special experiences …. her ways of healing the mind and body are always working away in the background without realising it and continue to work when you leave; her simple exercises and thoughts are well worth taking away with you…. they do work! Sylvia is a very unique person who is brilliant at what she does, we are very lucky that she came to live in Carlow.

Thank you Sylvia,

Silver Bowl With Label With Life Quote Live For The Moment With Purple And White Cosmea Blossoms On Wooden Background Vintage Retro Or Rustic Style

I attended Sylvia for three sound therapy sessions Healing through Sound (with Sylvia’s voice) in October/November 2014. I had never been to Sylvia for a treatment before this but my friend had, and had told me that once you walk into the house you feel so safe and comfortable and she was right!!  The atmosphere is amazing!  I found myself relaxing just listening to Sylvia speak while we had our cup of tea before treatments began. I was very stressed and going through a tough time in my life when I started these sessions and my mind was not very focused!  I had shingles from the stress I was under.  However I decided to let go completely for the sessions and let Sylvia do her work. During the first session I felt my stress literally melt away from me, when it was over I had a smile fixed on my face and felt so at peace in myself it was wonderful.  Several people commented on how different my face looked – from stressed to peaceful in one hour! The following week I found myself getting really excited at the thought of attending Sylvia for the second session, I couldn’t wait to get in there and let go and I was not disappointed. I found the whole three sessions to be comforting, strengthening and so full of peace for me.  I have been sleeping so much better since the first session (six weeks ago now) and my approach to stress has changed quite a lot, I am living in the moment a lot more and not letting things get to me so much.  I really don’t think I would be so well without Sylvia’s help.  I cannot recommend Sylvia enough, if you haven’t experienced her healing, you need to make an appointment and treat yourself – it will be well worth it!

I have chanted ‘Peace be with You’ in my head to many people this week and it worked.. Today I send you my warmest wishes and hope you get back what you give

The wild flowers and hens and the friendly dog Polly – she always welcomes me.  When you enter the door it is like the outside world is left outside. The atmosphere and environment so healing, therapeutic and relaxing. The journey is incredible within the sanctuary. The crystals bring enlightenment. I have to say when I miss a session I feel a little lost and lonely. This is one place I always speak about and recommend, you need to experience the journey to believe. I would like to wish Sylvia every success in the future, I am sure it is full of joy, light, peace and courage. Her dedication to her clients and their return really does speak for itself and speaks a thousand words. Continue the great work. Your number 1 fan,

EEvery once and awhile we need to take some time out to recharge our batteries and just be.  We lead such busy lives that it is not always possible to do just this. Well I gave myself that gift and attended a Wellness Workshop with Sylvia Shirley and it was simply wonderful.  Every thing about the day was very special. Sylvia provided amazing insights for us to ponder on and take away.  There was also a wholesome lunch, lovingly prepared by Sylvia.  It was truly a joyful day. You really do need to treat yourself to one of Sylvia’s workshops.

BG (17)Meditation and Tranquility Day. The day started with herbal tea in Sylvia’s kitchen and an exercise in ‘eating in the moment’.  When all were assembled and introductions completed we took a 15min trip to the woods where Sylvia lead us on her favourite paths – experiencing the sights, sounds, smell, feel and taste (yes taste!!) of the woods.  It was amazing to take time to enjoy so many different sensations that on previous visits had seemed ordinary.  Sylvia definitely brought a new awe inspiring perspective to a walk in the woods.  When the sun came out we did a short meditation in nature.  We returned to Sylvia’s kitchen where we all pitched in preparing a delicious lunch which included ingredients we had collected on our walk.  After lunch we went to the relaxation room where we got comfortable and began the meditation.  The room is lovely bright, airy and full of sunshine and chimes. During the meditation Sylvia played her singing bowls which sent sound vibrations through the room and through us.  It was a most enjoyable and relaxing experience.  I was loathe to leave when our time was done but I found myself full of energy that evening and slept so soundly that night.  I truly enjoyed the day and met some lovely like minded people with whom I swapped some interesting stories, recipes and life tips.  Sylvia as always was a great guide and inspiration.

Sylvia has the ability to fully understand what you need before you even do.  She can gain an insight into your inner self by working out the aches and kinks in your body. Her intuition and healing is like nothing I have ever experienced before. I had a wonderful facial and massage with Reiki session and it was heaven on earth. You leave lighter, more energised and more peaceful than you can imagine. Make time for yourself and enjoy this magical place, it’s so worth it.

Meditation-and-Sound-Therapy-RoomOne of the highlights of my week is attending Sylvia’s meditations on Thursday evenings – they are just beautiful.  To start with, her clinic is warm, bright, clean and comfortable.  You always get the sense that positive energy is surrounding you.  During the meditations, Sylvia’s voice is very soothing and easy to listen to.   The mixture of sounds from the crystal bowls and chimes are amazingly relaxing.  I always leave feeling calm and reinvigorated.   Between my job and life generally, I used to get stressed out easily.  However, since I started the mediations a number of months ago, I’ve found that I’m much calmer and more grounded.  I no longer let life’s stresses consume me.  Not alone do I feel as though I’ve become a much more positive and happier person, it has been commented on by others as well.  I highly recommend attending one of Sylvia’s meditations.

Mandy Finan – Amanda Christie Designs

Ear Candling in SpaSeveral years ago I developed Tinnitus closely followed by episodes of very severe Vertigo. I tried conventional medicine and lots of alternative remedies and therapies with little success. For the most part, I learned to live with the incessant ringing in my ears. However, there were particular times of the year when the noise became so loud that I thought I would surely go mad. The vertigo on the other hand only visited me a few times a year and invariably during the night.   This always resulted in me having to go to Caredoc as the attacks were so severe. After a particularly bad attack of both Tinnitus and Vertigo I began to wonder if there was a problem with tension in my neck and shoulders that might be causing my symptoms.  So I set about finding a good Massage therapist, and that’s when I found Sylvia’s website. On my fist visit I realised that Sylvia is special, very special.  She has a lovely warm caring manner and is genuinely interested in people’s wellbeing.  She suggested that perhaps Reiki would be the best option but I thought massage!  So we decided on a half hour massage and half hour Reiki.  This combination proved very successful and it was the first of many such sessions for me.  Because it was so effective for me about_meSylvia introduced it to other clients and it has now  become one of her most popular treatments. On Sylvia’s recommendation I subsequently tried Hopi ear candling. This also helped. I am very happy to report that my Tinnitus is almost non-existent and I have not had a Vertigo attack in three years.  I was so impressed with this new found peace that I decided to take a Reiki Healing course with Sylvia and completed level 1 in May  of this year so that I can use it to treat myself.  The course ran over two days and was absolutely wonderful. I came home feeling so good and so relaxed, better than being at a Spa!  I use my Reiki all the time and on nights that I find it difficult to sleep, I use my Reiki and I’m out like a light. While I can now do Reiki on myself, I shall continue to pop back to Sylvia from time to time to have my favourite ‘ half and half’ (half hour Reiki and half hour massage) as a treat. Thanks so much Sylvia X.

Rosie meditation I have been attending Sylvia’s beautiful meditation classes which cater not only for me but my dog Rosie also. Rosie is a ruby cavalier aged 3. She is a rescue dog and came from a puppy farm. When Rosie came to live with me she was a nervous wreck, she was petrified of loud noises and my other dogs. I decided to give the meditation classes a go. Within one session I noticed a huge difference in Rosie. After the second session she was a changed dog. Her confidence was soaring she was no longer afraid and she was very eager to mix with my other dogs. I cannot recommend Sylvia’s meditation class highly enough with her beautiful calming voice you are taken on a journey where you forget about the outside world for a while and completely relax Rosie becomes so relaxed she goes into a deep sleep and when she wakes up she doesn’t want to actually come home . If you have a dog that needs a little TLC Sylvia’s meditation class is most definitely the place to go. X Laura ( Rosie decided after Laura got up to make herself comfortable on Laura’s ‘bed’. Dogs get comfortable towels to lie on and their owners lie on comfortable mats and cushions and are covered with soft blankets.)

Understanding Reiki Therapy‘After many years of being at Reiki Level 1, I was finally ready to progress to Level 2. I could only do a course midweek and asked Sylvia if she could accommodate me. Studying Reiki 2 with Sylvia was intense but fun and we covered a lot over 2 days. We learnt all about the symbols used in Reiki, learnt how to cleanse a room, make a Reiki ‘shower’, de-programming, and how to program a crystal using Reiki. The distant healing practice we did was amazing and finished off the course perfectly. Sylvia encouraged me to keep a journal while doing the 21 day Reiki self-treatment so I would be aware of my progress. I feel I can call upon Sylvia anytime with any questions or queries I may have about Reiki. I find Sylvia to be a wonderful, kind and loving person who gives of her knowledge generously and openly. Sylvia’s Healing and Wellness Centre has a vibrant yet calming energy about it and the sound room with all it’s chimes is the perfect place for a Reiki Seminar.’

Happy family in summer on meadowAfter attending the wellbeing course “enabling yourself to live a happy and fulfilled life” with Sylvia last Saturday, i wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone.  It was a cosy, truly relaxing, non-judgemental experience full of tips and lessons that everyone can use in their everyday lives, to enable yourself to see that everything you need to fulfil your life you already have, but it teaches you how.  It was wonderfully great to take some time out for me and my needs away from the daily madness of rushing around to just to chill out with some really great people (and tasty food).  I truly believe that everyone should experience a little bit of Sylvia and just being in her company as she is a uniquely special person.

We are living in very stressful times and we are all working very hard to keep things afloat, but it is so important to avail of people like Sylvia to keep our energy flowing positively, and to feel like we can get through our week, by paying attention to ourselves and our wellbeing. I wish Sylvia every success for the future and hope many people avail of her very special treatments that are on offer in her haven of tranquillity.
