SSHA Private Sessions: kick-start your healing process & empowerment journey
MIND, BODY & HEART form the three main pillars of holistic practice on our journey of self-discovery, empowerment and healing. Whether you are experiencing a block in your life, need to heal physical and/or emotional traumas, or simply needing a deep, grounding relaxation and an emphatic ear, working intensively through one-on-one private sessions could offer useful insights and kick-start your inner self-healing process.
Depending on the goals, requirements, preference and lifestyle of each individual, each session is customized to assist the healing journey and achieve optimal results. The above modalities are also available in workshops and courses for further learning. Please contact us for details and bookings.
SSHA Private Sessions: what we offer
Your 1st & most important step:
Personal Journey Design
The most important step is to understand and identify your specific requirements. This is done in the first private consultation that guides you through an evaluation process, resulting in a customized empowerment road map design with recommended sessions or courses to participate. The process consist of an initial consultation (45 mins), a healing session (60 mins) ending with a feedback session (15 mins), lasting a total 120 mins. To be taken prior to all drop-in sessions as the beginning of your journey to empowerment.
Private sessions working with the MIND:
Feeling stressed, stuck, fearful and doubtful? Past wounds? Restlessness? Spiritual awakening? Or just simply needing a deep, grounding relaxation and an emphatic ear? A counseling session provides a safe, non-judgemental space to share your honest thoughts and emotions openly. It will also assist you in gaining valuable insights, kick-start your inner healing process and journey to self-empowerment.
When compromised for time or bound by distance, an online session would be the best solution to continue the work, offer consistent guidance, motivation and support whenever we might need it. Apart from counseling, guided relaxation and simple exercises can also be included to fit your goals and requirements.
Private sessions working with the MIND:
Meditation & Pranayama
The focus is on breath awareness, using various Pranayama (breath work) techniques to balance our entire bodily system. As a result, the mind quiets, emotions become peaceful that sets the tone for meditation. Although props such as cushions, blocks and towels will be used to help make sitting as comfortable as possible, students must be prepared to sit for long periods of time. Students are also advised to keep an open, positive mindset and expect whatever feelings or emotions that may arise during meditation. Once you managed to maintain a quiet mind and a calm heart, be prepared to enjoy the blissful inner calm within yourself.
Especially recommended for anyone who is interested in self-inquiry, exploring inner reflection within themselves, inner peace and self-healing.
Private sessions working with the MIND:
Similar to an Energy Healing and Sound Therapy session, the facilitator will gently guide the receiver into a deeply relaxed state of meditation. Imagine your life story as a movie, with you as the director and the facilitator as the producer in the background offering support as needed; all that is revealed would be driven by your soul’s purpose and pure intentions to heal, gain understanding, resolve the issue at hand or simply let go of people/events/belief systems that does not serve you anymore.
Just as we would perform an operation on our physical bodies for treatment, this is carried out on our subtle energy bodies that includes the mental, emotional and soul body. Long-standing fears, belief systems, memories, anxiety, repressed thoughts and emotions will be brought to the surface to be gently released and healed. Deeply healing and liberating, this is a wonderful way to renew your way of thinking and therefore changing your behaviour.
This method of healing has proven to be highly efficient whereby the subconscious mind work intricately with the subtle energy body while empowering the receiver to take charge of his/her own situation. Highly recommended for those wishing to obtain insights and better understand themselves, make peace with difficult relationships, assist positive change with addictions or behavioural patterns and move past traumatic experiences. I consider this as one of the best ways to help oneself on the path to spiritual transformation and healing.
Private sessions working with the BODY:
Gentle yet efficient, therapeutic and meditative, this practice is suitable for all bodies and backgrounds. It’s especially good for those who have injuries, are compromised physically/mentally, also helpful for those who need to balance out their exercise routine with deep stretching, muscular release to assist recovery and relaxation.
Fusing Yoga Therapy, Feldenkrais, Sound/Breath/Movement, Pranayama (Yogic breathing), Meditation and Sound Healing, each session is uniquely designed to adapt to everyone. You will learn and be encouraged truly listen to your body’ needs, tune into your mental state and allow your emotional expressions to be heard.
Private sessions working with the BODY:
The student will learn from the teacher on a one-on-one basis as taught traditionally since ancient times. Personal attention means the teacher can focus entirely on what you need and help design a personal programme to meet your targets. Classes will be specifically tailor made to suit your current situation and done at your own, comfortable pace. This is especially important for beginners as the pace will be slow, the session thorough and precise to ensure maximum learning. The programme will be adapted according to the development of your practice and any relevant changes in the progress.
Learn Yogic techniques to relieve common ailments like back pain, weak joints, insomnia, headaches and so on. Using powerful principles of Iyengar Yoga and Yoga Therapy as well as other forms of Yoga, the focus will be on proper breathing, proper posture and precise alignment for a safe, effective practice. These are highly therapeutic approaches to exercise, heal injuries, meditate and rebalance the whole body, mind and spirit. Come experience the deep peace and joy emanating from within after your practice. Your body, mind and spirit will thank you for it.

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

Using the breath, voice work, ancient Tibetan Singing Bowls and other instruments, we explore sounds as a vibrational tool for healing and wellness. We will also tap into harnessing the potential of our own voices as a direct and powerful healing practice. Sounds carry powerful vibrations that can interact, repair and heal the subtle energies within our physical, mental, emotional and energy bodies. It ground us, promotes deep peace, de-stress our overactive minds, opens and heals our emotional wellbeing, among many other benefits.

All crystals contain vibrations that could be harnessed for the purpose of healing and balancing our subtle energy system in the mind, body and heart. Since ancient times, crystals are considered as one of the most sacred gifts from nature with its many functions. Furthermore, it is also a useful and creative tool in Colour Therapy due to its abundance of colours, shapes and sizes that holds specific meanings and interpretations. During a healing session, receivers are invited to choose a crystal they feel connected to by tuning into their intuition and instincts. The crystal is then used in conjunction with other modalities during the treatment to maximize the healing process.
Especially recommended for those who love and respond well to colours and textures, people who already have a practice in the healing arts like Meditation, Yoga, martial arts and so on.
Aromatherapy is the art of using plant materials and aromatic plant oils, including essential oils, and other aroma compounds for improving psychological and physical well-being. Working with the olfactory system, or sense of smell has been proven to effectively deepen the healing process and enhance the overall experience. As with all objects, especially objects from nature, they carry vibrations that could become powerful tools for healing and regeneration. Receivers will enjoy the many different benefits from various oils, especially the customized blends from SSHA which are based on the needs of each individual.
Especially recommended for those who have a keen sense of smell and sensitive to vibrational medicine.
