What is Auricular (Ear) Acupuncture?
Ear / Auricular acupuncture originates from Chinese Medicine, similar to body acupuncture the ear has points that correspondent to parts and organs of the body. Very fine sterile needles are used on specific points to bring balance and harmony to the mind, body and spirit.
Ear Acupuncture Treatment
I usually use this treatment in conjunction with other treatments I offer. When used with other treatments it will enhance and deepen your experience of the treatment.
Utilising the NADA detox protocol, ear acupuncture is an ideal treatment when one is undergoing any detoxification programme (alcohol, food, nicoteen or any other detox).
Ear acupuncture is both stimulating and relaxing, it can last for 30- 45 minutes, and it can be done sitting or lying down, it is well suited for individual treatment or drop-in group sessions.
Most treatments I offer take 1 hour with some time for feedback at the end of treatment. Your 1st treatment will include a thorough consultation which will give me a clear picture of what combination of treatments I will carry out for you.
"I just wanted to say a big thank you. I cant tell how much better I feel. I was feeling good before today's session but today was the icing on the cake! it amazed me how you tapped right into the key thing that's been troubling me - but that, with a bit of effort it is easy to rectify."
"I am so thankful to have met Maria and I would like everyone to know about her! She came into my life during a very unsettled and stressful time and introduced me to Reiki. My first session with her was an incredible experience, and nothing like other complementary therapies I’ve tried before, such as, reflexology and acupuncture. I was quite unprepared for the immediate and powerful sense of calm I felt. Subsequent sessions have enabled me to reconnect with my spirit and have given me a very deep sense of peace."
"When the student is ready; the Master will appear." and this is precisely what happened. I did my Reiki 2 with Maria Gomes and she was the perfect person for the second part of my Reiki atunement. The weekend was fun, relaxing and very powerful and the healing energy knew exactly where to go. I highly recommend Maria as a teacher if you are thinking of learning the healing art of Reiki."
"Reiki Level 1 workshop was truly amazing and I enjoyed every minute of it. Maria created a space where I felt comfortable enough to learn, laugh, fully relax and be open to receive this wonderful ability. I was guided and supported by Maria and was able to practice on myself and in small groups which felt comfortable and right. It was such a beautiful experience."
"Since completing my Reiki Level One training, I have been able to self practice and perform Reiki on myself on such a deep and wonderful level. I have been able to incorporate Reiki into my everyday life and daily routine which is such a blessing to be able to do."
"I had the pleasure to go for a training in reiki level 1 with Maria cooper Gomes.
The all week end was such a discovery of my inner self, which left me as a different person when I finished.
The all training was delivered in a calm, loving and peaceful manner. Everything from the welcome to the discussion, treatments, to the end, Maria has been so professional, thoroughly, that every stages flow like a peaceful river.
At the end of it, it creates a special bound within the group.
I’m looking forwards to do my level 2."

It was a new experience for me initially with Maria and after attending a session with Maria I am hooked!! I felt relaxed and welcomed. The atmosphere and environment was one of calm and peace resulting in a feeling of relaxation and healing, Highly recommend! AW- Social Worker
I wanted to thank you for all the Theta and time spent with me as it is really thanks to your help that I have managed to come this far. The person I was this time last year before my first Theta session is no more. I have a positive outlook on life, really feel happy with who I am and am making progress every day. VN
I took a leap of faith with Maria and I'm so glad I did. I was a little sceptical so was even more pleased with the results. I particularly liked and gota lot out of her combination of holistic practices- acupuncture, Reiki and Indian Head massage. Her tailored approach and gentle manner not only boosted my energy levels but also gave me a calmness of mind to tackle all the competing demands with a new clarity I've not felt for quite some time.

I just wanted to say thank you again for the wonderful weekend I had with you and the others. It alone was almost like a relaxing mind retreat for me, so thank you.
I will definitely recommend you to my friends if they are interested learning reiki at any point, or are looking for someone to do them a reiki treatment.
