Jody Martens, B.S.W.; C.M.P.  

I am ‘Kokum’ Jody. In addition to being a Certified Massage Practitioner, I hold a Baccalaureate Honours Degree in Social Work, with a minor in Psychology, and have worked for many years as a life, mental health, grief and addictions counsellor, in clinical, educational and First Nations settings. I am a ‘Midew’ – a practitioner of traditional indigenous ‘medicine’, and was trained by Elder John Vickers, a respected and accomplished healer.

Nikki and I employ a holistic ‘Medicine Wheel’ approach that considers your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual needs when designing your personal individualised treatment.

WHAT EXACTLY DO I DO?   

  • RELIEVE STRESS & PAIN
  • HELP YOU OVERCOME PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL AILMENTS
  • HELP YOU JOURNEY TO RENEWAL

Welcome, and congratulations on taking a positive step on your  path to renewal! My associate, Nikki Pearson (of Guiding Spirit Learning Solutions), and I look forward to meeting with you to discover how we can be of service to you on your journey. Nikki and I employ a holistic ‘Medicine Wheel’ approach that considers your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual needs when designing your personal individualised treatment.

We want to help you overcome more than just the pain you feel today – though that is a very good start! We want to put our skills and gifts, learned and honed over many decades, at your disposal to assist you in breaking your stress cycle, finding your sense of balance and harmony, and increasing your energy and vitality. We can guide you to empowering methods that lead to you finding new purpose and inspiration, and to you getting a better grip on life.

Take a break; meet with us for a Discovery Session. Tell us how you feel. We will listen, and explore with you the choices of treatment we can offer. These range from Life Readings, to energy clearing, balancing and relaxation massage, to deep trance shamanic journeying and soul retrieval, for past trauma and for meeting you spirit and animal guides.

Share the load. Refresh and renew. Feel the change. There is a treatment. Let us help you.

Not sure what session to book? We offer complimentary 30 minute Discover Sessions to discuss what treatment options best suit you at this time.!

Relaxation Massage

 ....is exactly what it sounds like! It helps relieve stress and pain, from the crown of your head to the soles of your feet. It is particularly effective when combined with energy work such as Reiki and Vibrational Healing (see Nikki’s page for in-depth explanations of those treatments.) As an intuitive healer, I can find your particular trouble spots, whenever they manifest in your body. Beyond pain relief, come alleviate your stress and find your calm.

Shamanic Journeying

Shamanic Journeying, which uses Ecstatic Trance, has been employed by shamans and healers for centuries. It is also a tool used by modern psychiatrists, psychologists and psychoanalysts in clinical practice. It is a powerful avenue for bringing about healthy change in the ways you experience the world – change that helps you overcome emotional, behavioural and even physical problems.

The induction rituals involve specific body posture, music and drumming, and other sensory components, and can lead to a higher level of spiritual maturity. It goes beyond treating a specific problem that is limiting your function. It further helps you discover the broader horizon of different cultures beyond the small, defined community of your experience, as well as the interdependence and connectedness of all life. It opens a door to your being a Universal Citizen and steward of the Earth. Or, as indigenous people say when communing with our guides, ancestors and fellow creatures – “All my relations!”

What is Trance?

It is a less critical, more focused, altered state of consciousness. It is a way of getting around the incessant thoughts of the conscious mind that interfere with seeing beyond ‘rational’ thinking. It takes you into the extra-sensory world, and beyond – into what has been called the Collective Unconscious, the Universal Mind, the Akashic Field, the Divine Matrix. It connects to your ‘automatic stories’ that come from the deep self, that you may not have accessed or been able to put into words, and to the solutions to the problems that arise from these stories. Trance can be used to uncover and treat life trauma, past and present, to explore previous lives, to seek and meet spirit guides and power animals, and to provide direction for becoming self-actualised.

Soul Retrieval/Past Life Exploration

Throughout your existence, you have had experiences that have resulted in unconscious thought patterns. Those that are negative result in compulsive repetitive thoughts, and other emotional and physical problems.

Soul retrieval uses ecstatic trance to identify when, where, why, how and who caused you to take on dysfunctional thinking – when you ‘lost’ a fragment of your whole, healthy self, that you didn’t even realise was missing. As you travel into your unconscious mind, into your past, you uncover those experiences. Using trance imagery, it is possible to then reframe beliefs. This can bring about the death of negative thought-forms, and the rebirth of innocence. Healthy thinking can become automatic and unconscious, as was unhealthy thinking.

So – soul retrieval is the death of the old self-limiting patterns and the birth of the self you were intended to be. Take this journey of renewal; you have only yourself to regain.

Journey Plus Energy Healing

Specialised for you after your discovery session discussion, this unique session utilises a number of modalities: breathwork, blessing, Reiki, Chakra balancing and Biofield Tuning, and trance work for past life exploration, meeting your spirit guides and animals, or uncovering trauma and blockages from your past.

Psycho-Energetic Healing

Combines traditional talk and energy healing to provide a highly effective treatment which supports your physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual health and balance. It can assist you in breaking your stress cycle, and replacing unhealthy self-limiting beliefs with healthier thought patterns. Psycho-Energetic healing can also be used to uncover and treat life trauma, past and present.

Guided Readings

To call myself an intuitive reader is like saying that water is wet. (One hopes that a reader is intuitive, RIGHT?!) I act as a channel for various guides, and allow what the Mind of the Creative Source wishes to reveal. I use methods that include, but are not limited to, cards. I’ve been doing this for almost 40 years, since before there was widespread terminology, outside of indigenous cultures, for what I do. I’m pretty good at it.

TESTIMONIALS

Jody has provided me with guidance and healing for over 30 years. She is a genuinely gifted channel and intuitive reader.
