Chloe's Therapeutic Approach
Chloe's therapeutic approach is based on a Complimentary Holistic Healing philosophy, with the foundational belief that true healing and lasting wellness arise from the aligned union of Mind, Body and Spirit. She aims to guide and support this alignment process with integrated Bodywork, Energywork, Yoga and Meditation practices, thereby addressing all aspects of your Being collectively rather than individually (which fosters further separation and dis-ease).
Chloe uses the terms Bodywork and Energywork to categorise her varying therapeutic practices, however, these distinctions are not exclusive. Mind, Body and Spirit are interconnected and heavily influenced by one another, therefore Bodywork practices address the mind and energetic body, as well as the physical body, and Energywork practices influence the physical body as well as the subtle energetic body. Chloe does not use these categories to further separate the Being, but to clarify whether a therapeutic practice involves light to no touch (Energywork), or direct pressure and manual manipulation of the physical body (Bodywork), and what the core focus of the practice is (physical or energetic). If you are suffering from a physical issue such as pain, tension, and musculoskeletal discomfort, then you will likely benefit from a Bodywork based session, but if you have no obvious physical concerns, and your condition is more mental-emotional or based in the energetic body, then you will likely benefit from an Energywork based session.
Below we have defined the terms Bodywork and Energywork, and sorted Chloe's therapeutic practices, as well as her appointment types, into each category to help you identify which modality or appointment type will best suit your preferences, and support your health and wellness at this time.
Bodywork is an ancient and holistic therapeutic practice that brings about physical, mental-emotional, and spiritual balance. The term applies to any therapy or healing modality that focuses on the manual manipulation of the physical body. This practice primarily influences the various systems contained within the physical body (Muscular, Skeletal, Nervous, Lymphatic, Cardiovascular, etc.), and calms the conscious mind. Bodywork helps to re-build our Body-Awareness, or Body-Consciousness, by bringing our awareness to our daily activities, behaviours and practices, and how they are impacting our bodies. This is vital for understanding ourselves, and how we can heal.
The body is an incredible messenger, acting as a bridge that connects the physical and non-physical aspects of Being. Our daily physical activities, the way we carry ourselves, our aches, pains and sensitivities, all have the ability to empower us by alerting us to the imbalances in our lives, imbalances that are perhaps even mental-emotional, or spiritual in nature. Treating the body can directly address, or bring our awareness to and help us understand, the root cause of our dis-ease, allowing us to uproot it.
Bodywork practices such as massage should not be considered luxuries that can only be enjoyed on special occasions. Bodywork has the capacity to play a vital role in the promotion and maintenance of our health and well-being, and should be considered part of a regular Self-Care routine.

Energywork refers to any therapy or healing practice that focuses primarily on the energetic body. It operates under the premise that everything in the universe, inanimate or animate, is made up of the same base energetic substance, often referred to as Universal Life Force Energy, and that foundational energy is what brings life to the universe. Energywork is the practice of tapping into that universal life force energy, either by channelling it into the body to promote healing and bring about balance (Reiki), or by using elements such as sound, crystals, or touch to influence the energy within and surrounding an individual for the purpose of healing or bringing about balance.
Although Energywork focuses on the energetic body rather than the physical, many Energywork practices are touch-based. The body is a bridge between the physical and the energetic. Energetic imbalances often express themselves through the physical body to get our attention. Acupressure involves the application of gentle finger pressure to points along the Meridians (energy channels) to effect the energy flow within them, Reiki involves the laying of hands on various parts of the body to channel higher vibrational energy into the body and remove blockages, Reflexology involves the manual manipulation of reflection points found on the hands, feet, and ears that are energetically linked to the various organs and systems within the physical body, even Yoga uses physical postures to open up the energy channels and improve the flow of energy throughout the body.
If you're unfamiliar with Energywork, aren't sure how to sense or interact with your energetic body, and feel uncertain about the healing benefits of energy-based practices, try exploring the touch-based options that will allow you to feel into the physical effects, and use the physical sensations as a gateway to the energetic.
