Client Testimonials

"I really don't have words for my gratitude and awe of the session Shelley so amazingly held space for yesterday. I am so very blessed she has the knowledge and background to go where it is needed. That session could have not been done by anyone else. I would not have healed in this way from anyone else, this is where I have been trying to go to heal." - Kamryn Casady, BodyAttune Client and The RHM: Journey Into Wholeness Participant.

"Shelley is an amazing practitioner and an amazing person. She's radically transformed some health issues in a few short distance sessions which I never would have been able to fix with diet or lifestyle measures alone. My histamine intolerance was so severe I would end up in bed all day if I ate fermented foods, and now it's almost entirely gone! This is something people usually live with for life and have to revolve their every action and food intake around." - Naomi, BodyAttune distance client

"Currently I am participating in one of Shelley's six-week group session series. The experience is extremely valuable. Shelley is highly qualified to go to new places with expertise and calm, attuned to your body's innate wisdom, the breadth of the BodyTalk System, and more. I highly recommend her, a recommendation I scrutinize carefully from 20 years of personal exploration with a range of practitioners." - Dennis B., BodyAttune client and The RHM: Journey Into Wholeness Participant
