About Rasunah

rasunah photo

After graduating with a BSc (Hons) in Life Sciences from Cardiff University in 1998, I went on to study homeopathy and holistic health therapies. I attained an ITEC diploma in reflexology in 2007, and further qualifications in massage, Hopi ear and attunement to REIKI master in 2008. I qualified in hypnotherapeutic counselling skills with a practitioners diploma in clinical hypnotherapy from Surrey College of Clinical Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy in 2015 and have recently undertaken a certificate in nutritional counselling with the College of Naturopathic Nutrition and I am a fully insured hypnotherapist, reflexologist, Reiki master and holistic therapist.

I am a reiki practitioner and reiki healing naturally forms part of your treatment. It is a guiding and healing force and is why so many of my clients report a depth of relaxation they haven't ever experienced before. Reiki addresses the natural energetic flow in the body. There are certain concentrated energy points or chakras located in the body that allow life force energy to flow in or out. In a healthy person these chakras are balanced and open, but it is easy to alter their optimum flow with encounters of stress. Stress is an inevitable part of life and serves the important growth and development of our psyche. It requires mental processing and release in order to be removed from our energetic body or aura. If this processing does not occur because the emotions or feelings produced are unwanted or too painful, we push the stress deeper into our energy body and block its natural flow. This is why it is often that one emotional event will trigger past memories associated with the same feeling. These blockages can be picked up by a Reiki practitioner even if they remain unconscious to the recipient. Reiki energy guides the release and cleanses the aura of energy blocks.

Greenleaf therapies is a successful holistic practice, running for over 10 years and situated in Shinfield just outside Reading in Berkshire.

Reiki Guided Relaxation Therapy

This treatment is the most popular as it uses a combination of reflexology pressure points to encourage a release of emotional and physical tension with deep Reiki. At times during the treatment you may experience heat or a tingling sensation or see the Reiki energy as colours, but the most common response is to experience deep relaxation and a letting go of old problems. It is common to talk though stuck issues during the reflexology part of the treatment and then to lie back and close your eyes during the reiki to fully experience the deep relaxation.

Relaxation therapy is suitable for all and is particularly useful in supporting the body when going through times of physical or emotional stress including childhood development, pregnancy, post and pre-operative stress, sleep disorders and life changes.

Emotional Freedom Technique

EFT is an effective and simple therapy that addresses both psychological and physical issues with long lasting effect. It has roots in both Eastern medicine and modern psychology. It works by releasing blockages in the energy system through tapping acupressure points. These disturbances in the energy system that are thought to be the cause and result of the emotional disturbance. Because it is so simple to use, it can be used effectively as a self-help tool between or outside of treatments allowing you to actively contribute to your own healing and development process. Sometimes issues can be resolved with one session but often a follow-up is required to address components of the issue that may surface after the session.

EFT is effective for; anxiety, panic attacks, muscle tension, fear of exams, phobias and processing emotions.

Touch Therapy

Indian Head Massage
This is a stimulating yet relaxing scalp massage to effectively relieve stress and tension. If the scalp feels tight and heavy because of mental and physical stress then circulation of the vital fluids to the brain is impaired causing tension and headaches. Indian Head Massage is the easiest and most natural way to relieve these symptoms by restoring circulation, stimulating vital energies and oxygenating the brain tissues.

Hopi Ear Candle
Hopi Ear candles also known as thermo-auricular therapy incorporates a draining ear and head massage with a hollow cotton candle that is impregnated with beeswax and aromatherapy oils. The candle is painlessly inserted into the ear to draw out impurities and combined with massage, relieves pressure in the head and sinuses.

Aromatherapy Massage
Aromatherapy, also referred to as Essential Oil therapy, is the ancient art and science of utilising naturally extracted aromatic essences from plants to balance, harmonise and promote the health of body, mind and spirit. It seeks to unify physiological, psychological and spiritual processes to enhance an individual’s innate healing process.

Reflexology
Reflexology identifies and releases energy blockages within the body through pressure points on the feet. It is fascinating to see how the whole body is mapped out on the feet. Energy blockages within a part of the body come up as tender or crystallised areas on the relevant parts of the feet. They are worked away until the blockage is released. It is a relaxing and harmonising treatment that addresses both emotional and physical issues.

Holistic Facial treatments
Facial treatments are not only beneficial for the elasticity and appearance of your skin but they are very relaxing and serve to de-stress the mind through the movements in the facial and scalp massage.

Organic products are used that are both safe and beneficial for your skin and induce relaxation through their aroma.

What to expect from your holistic therapy...

Before

You can chat to me either by phone or email to discuss your requirements and the best treatment to suit you. When you arrive, I will go through a short health questionnaire and explain a little bit more about how your chosen treatment will work for you. Your time with me is all about you. You can be as open as you wish. The atmosphere is relaxed and calm, safe and confidential.

During

Most treatments take place with you lying or sitting on the treatment bed. Generally clients choosing reflexology sit on the bed facing me so that we can talk through what comes up as I work the feet. You are free to ask questions at any time. I generally ask you to close your eyes during the reiki as this allows you to concentrate on the deep relaxation that it brings. With massage and facials, you lie flat on the bed with supporting pillows.

After

Clients very often report a sense of relaxation much deeper than they have often felt before. I encourage you to hydrate with water and depending on the reason for coming, will often send you away with a small amount of ‘homework’, whether this be a small lifestyle adjustment or a new way of thinking. The frequency of subsequent treatments will depend both on the reason for coming to see me and whether important issues surface during your treatment. Clients can see me weekly, fortnightly or monthly, the length of time usually increases as you feel more and more ‘yourself’.

Hypnotherapy
for

Wellbeing

Hypnotherapy allows a deep state of relaxation, it reduces muscle tension and creates a more receptive and open mind. It allows possibilities of change to the present state of being. Hypnotherapy works with you, it links to your own creative mind that is not hindered by worry or limitation. Using images or words, depending on your natural way of thinking, it anchors a state of relaxation to the issues or triggers that are causing the pain. It allows you to create a new potential outcome that is far away from the limiting belief that is brining you down.

I use reiki to guide the hypnotherapy, this allows a natural and intuitive healing to the process which enhances the new positive framework by energetically clearing the energy blocks created by the original limiting thoughts. It also allows a deeper connection with you to bring in the positive anchors that are individual to you.

Habit Breaking

Hypnotherapy uses suggestions of positive behaviour whilst you are deeply relaxed. This altered state of awareness allows your mind to be open enough to take on these positive suggestions, removing the unconscious habit of behaviour.

Smoking cessation, nail biting and over-eating all respond well to hypnotherapy.

EFT for Phobias

Normally a phobia is a learned or conditioned behaviour that becomes more intense over time, leading to panic attacks and total abstinence from the exciting cause. There are several hypnotherapeutic techniques to help eliminate phobias, these include suggestion, neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) EFT and controlled exposure.

and EFT for Anxiety
and Panic Attacks

Anxiety in all its forms is becoming increasingly prominent in today’s society and the age range is increasing. Relaxation and mindfulness have been proven to reduce the episodes of depression and anxiety and create a more positive mindset. Relaxation and mindfulness practice is more effective through hypnotherapy and Reiki. In addition, they both work with not only the underlying cause of the anxiety, but also the unconscious spiral of negative thoughts that it brings about. EFT is a simple but effective tool to work through specific issues that have led to the highly charged emotions of anxiety and panic and has been used with some astounding results.

Benefits

Staff Retention

Every time a business replaces a salaried employee, it costs 6 to 9 months salary on average. Successful companies understand the clear link between healthy energised staff and the bottom line. Employee wellbeing is an essential component of any successful, progressive company, giving you a clear competitive advantage to attract and retain the best people.

Reduce stress and sickness

Work-related stress, depression or anxiety is defined as a harmful reaction people have to undue pressures and demands placed on them at work. The total number of working days lost due to this condition in 2014/15 was 9.9 million days. This equated to an average of 23 days lost per case. In 2014/15 stress accounted for 35% of work related ill health cases. Keep your stress levels down in advance.

Productivity

Staff switch from ‘automatic pilot’ mode to fully showing up to work - Happy and healthy employees who are present and fully engaged - Reduce stress and sickness absence - Increase productivity and performance - Foster a culture of creativity, positivity, confidence and vitality - Improve customer service satisfaction and loyalty. Enhance staff motivation, engagement, retention and listening skills.

Indian Head Massage

Reflexology

Sit back, relax and take the stress off your feet whilst reactivating your health. Reflexology can be ideal for offices with limited meeting room space and for employees that want the full health benefits alongside relaxation. It may also suit employees that prefer to remain fully clothed as only the shoes and socks are removed.

Mindfulness Training

Massage

Stress and tension are often carried in the head, neck, and shoulders. Using a flat bed and a light massage oil, muscles are soothed from aches and pains, leaving the neck free and the head clearer and more focused. This ideal after hours at a desk in the office. The meeting room used will have soft lighting and gentle music to help the employee ‘ zone out’ from stress and leave relaxed yet invigorated.

Neck Shoulder Massage

Health and Wellbeing

With so much media coverage on health and lifestyle, many employees need advice that is tailored just for them. Working through the ‘touch’ therapies of reflexology and massage, individual requirements can be identified and fed back to the employee. This greatly improves the ‘wellness’ effect of the treatment.

What my clients say......

I went to see Rus for what was going to be a one off treat after a friend 'sold' the idea to me by going on about how good she was. Well, my friend couldn't have been more right! I've now been having Reflexology, Massage and Reiki treatments for a few months and I can honestly say I think Rus has changed my life! I was in quite a dark place and couldn't understand why I couldn't function like I used to, why I had a big backlog of work and seemed unable to get up to date etc. Well since seeing Rus, I've cleared SO MUCH work and also done a large DIY project at home because I suddenly had the energy and drive to get on and sort it, something I couldn't have done before! Rus has also managed to sort out my kidney pain, I think she's amazing. And what's more, she does the most fantastic massage!! I've had a few massages over the years, all different types including hot and cold stones - all sorts!! I can honestly say that I've never had such a lovely massage as Rus gives - I will never have a massage elsewhere again! (please never move!)

It's also great that Rus is available outside of normal working hours as otherwise I wouldn't be able to use her. Her room is lovely and she plays lovely gentle and relaxing music. I couldn't recommend her enough!! Not only is Rus fantastic and passionate about what she does but she is one of the loveliest people I have ever met. I'm so pleased to have met Rus.

Helen, Shinfield

After just one treatment with Rasunah, my troublesome and repetitive sinusitis problems began to lift. Having never tried reflexology or reiki before, I was a bit sceptical at first but I was quickly convinced of the benefits and amazed by the accuracy and impact of reflexology. I am pleased to say that my symptoms completely disappeared within a few months and I haven’t had a problem since!

A combination of massage, reflexology and reiki also helps me to de-stress from my busy career as a teacher and I firmly believe that this has played a key role in me recently falling pregnant. So far, my treatments have supported me greatly with the both the emotional and physical changes this brings and I feel thoroughly refreshed and energised after my session.

Rasunah is highly professional but at the same time, extremely friendly and easy to talk to, which allows me to easily relax and thoroughly enjoy my treatments. She is one of the most positive and kind people you will ever meet and clearly loves her job. She is so passionate and knowledgeable about her the treatments and is always willing to go the extra mile for clients. On a practical note, the flexibility of evening appointments is really useful around work.

I always look forward to my treatments so much. An hour of pure relaxation is bliss! Afterwards, I float home and sleep like a baby that night! I honestly can’t recommend her highly enough.

Kirsten, Shinfield

I first went to see Rasunah as a one-off treat, but have returned regularly ever since as I find the sessions so productive and enjoyable. Not only do I come out physically relaxed after my reflexology and back massages, but Rasunah's calm and positive attitude is infectious. I always leave feeling centred and tranquil, and as a result these sessions have helped me get through a relationship break up and more recently a family bereavement. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Cassie, Earley

I strongly believe that we all need simple pleasures in life, especially if we’re at a stage where we are constantly running just to stand still. My simple pleasure is just one hour’s treatment each month with Rus. Her amazing treatment of reflexology, massage and reiki is all I need to keep centred and positive through the demands of life. The treatment, the products and the calming ambiance of her home studio combine to give an exceptional experience that never fails to relax me for a great night’s sleep, and then reenergise me for the challenges of the days ahead. Rus herself is always professional and focused on the treatment yet also finds the time to tune into whatever is on my mind to help me reorder my thoughts and ideas. It truly is a whole person rejuvenation – body, mind and soul – given by a truly positive, kind and thoughtful person.

Thank you Rus.

Sarah, Wokingham

Eighteen Months ago I was physically and emotionally in a dark place until a friend recommended that I make an appointment to see Rus at Rejuvenase.

On my first visit I was greeted with upmost warmth and the atmosphere was tranquil very calm and soft music was playing with wonderful aromatherapy smells. My Reflexology was absolutely fantastic, I left feeling enlightened and balanced, and couldn’t wait to go again.

I have been going to Rus for over 18 months now and cannot express how wonderful she is with all her treatments. I receive Reflexology, Reiki and Massage as part of my weekly program and the physical and emotional enlightenment regains my energy and refreshes my balance to face another week at work.

Not only is Rus highly professional and extremely friendly, she is easy to talk to and she is a wonderful person inside and out. Rus is very knowledgeable and passionate about her work and always puts her clients first.

Throughout my treatment Rus has become a true and loyal friend and every week I look forward to my treatment and always leave feeling rejuvenated, enlightened and balanced.

Thank you Rus.

Helen, Aborfield

I have been seeing Rasunah for treatments for over 3 years now, I first started off with facials and have gone on to enjoy reflexology.

I can highly recommend Rasunah she is friendly, very professional, highly skilled and informative. She has helped enormously with my complex medical problems and enabled me to cope with the side effects of these through reflexology treatments.

When Rasunah first suggested to me that reflexology could help me I was very sceptical but agreed to give it a go, to my surprise and frankly amazement after the second treatment I felt a marked improvement and have been a total convert since then, and now can’t recommend it highly enough.

If you are looking for complementary therapies and beauty treatments delivered with professionalism look no further.

Dariel, Maindenhead

Rus is absolutely wonderful and has a magical touch that eases away all my stress and tension. I've been having treatments now from her for 3 years and every time I see her I come away feeling relaxed and re-energised. I'd recommend her to anyone.

Julie, Maidenhead

I Just wanted to say what a great night it was last night, thanks to you and your lovely treatments! My friends really enjoyed it so I may well try to organise another evening before baby arrives if you are ok with that?

Ali, Shinfield

Thank you Rasunah...

I have to admit I was somewhat skeptical about your being able to treat me for my gout. But after only a few treatments the excruciating pain in my toe subsided considerably and I began to walk more comfortably. Seeing you on and off now for the past year has definitely maintained this situation.

However although the treatment was extremely beneficial, it had to be accompanied by a complete change in what I ate and drank. Drinking a lot more water also assisted in this remedy. It appears that reflexology can be helpful in so many ways, it truly is a miracle healing method. And your approach to it is especially effective.

With grateful thanks and appreciation.

Ron, Maidenhead

I started having reflexology treatments with Rasunah in the early stages of my pregnancy, and the wonderfully relaxing treatments totally transformed the early weeks of pregnancy for me. I felt so invigorated after a treatment, and really cherished the one hour therapy with Rus.

Also I would recommend the facials where Rus uses beautifully natural products, which really compliment your skin.

All in all having treatments with Rejuvenase have been a fantastic experience which I intend to continue for many months to come.
