My name is Vanessa Ainslie. I am an intuitive empath, clairvoyant, clairsentient, ritualist, licensed massage therapist, certified coach, certified Ayurvedic wellness counselor, energy healer, craniosacral therapist, sound healer, plant medicine practitioner and educator.
In this work it is important to me to create an intentional, accessible, and inclusive space for healing and education, prioritizing the need for both self-care and community-care as tools for dismantling the ways we've internalized current systems of kyriarchy under which we live in order to promote a resilient, liberated, well and bright community.
As a practitioner, I offer 13 years of experience working through a trauma informed lens to offer somatic bodywork, personal ritual, shadow work, ancestral healing and energetic + spiritual healing. The soul tending work we do together focuses on exploring early wounding as a means of re-mything limiting self beliefs to establish good boundaries, energetic hygiene and sovereignty.
I am descendant of many mixed lineages including Sephardi and Askenazi Jew of Middle Eastern, Mediterranean and Baltic regions. I am a 4th generation immigrant from Greece, my practice being rooted in exploring and reclaiming the ancient pagan traditions of my Greek heritage in right relationship to the Spirits of this land and its Ancestors.
I believe the root of most symptoms and dis-associative patterns lie in the imbalances caused by unprocessed traumas and internalized wounds born from the formative experiences of this lifetime, internalized systemic and cultural beliefs, and the loss of severed ancestry.
Over time these energetic blockages can crystallize, taking up space in your body and energy field, displacing your Spirit and causing physical and emotional manifestations. The work we do together uses a multi-modality approach to reintegrate your displaced soul part(s) by examining the root source of your wounds verbally, then accessing body sensations, felt in present time and space combined with the use of positive bio-feedback through bodywork and vibrational healing tools such as sound healing and plant medicine to remind your soul that your body is no longer in danger. This creates a natural and unforced invitation, calling to any dis-integrated soul parts to return as they are ready.
