Energy Medicine

Energy Medicine

An energy medicine session feels like a wonderful wave of peace flowing all around and through you, clearing away all that you no longer need and filling you with beautiful, luminous light.

I will do an overall energetic intake to see where blockages are being held, talk with you about your goals and intentions for your healing, and give insights throughout the session as your energy body begins to give me information about the origination of the blockages and what it needs to balance. 

Energy Medicine is a clothes-on healing modality that uses your own life-force energy to promote health on all levels of being; physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

I work with Reiki energy and Medical Intuition. 

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of healing. It has been recognized by the medical community as a holistic therapy to help with easing the effects of pain, stress and anxiety. It also works in conjunction with all medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

Clients report many benefits including:

  • relaxation
  • reducing the effects of pain
  • decrease in stress and anxiety
  • physical relief from illness and pain
  • calm, balanced and connected to a higher source within
  • feelings of peace, security, well-being, joy and happiness
  • a deeper spiritual connection 
  • complete healing from chronic illness 
  • able to integrate healing with medical doctors for faster recovery
  • understanding of unknown illnesses and healing from the symptoms
  • knowledge about why certain patterns won’t go away and after session over, energy cleared 
Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra is a mindful, guided meditation practice that allows the body and mind to enter into a deeply relaxed state with the intention of bringing the conscious mind into harmony with the subconscious and unconscious. While the body enters a state of sleep, the mind is guided into a place between sleep and wakefulness in order to accept positive instructions. These instructions are meant to promote mental healing through the power of unconscious visualization, pranic healing through the flow of light and energy in the body, and an increased sense of will-power and resilience.

This powerful technique has been shown to be useful in eliminating the root causes of negative thinking and stress. Through the perspective gained in Yoga Nidra, you may reduce the impact of stress-related disorders like hypertension, depression, insomnia, asthma, anxiety, chronic pain, digestive illnesses, and much more. Yoga Nidra is also shown to be highly effective in training the mind to access its natural well of creativity, problem solving, memory faculties, and learning abilities. Yoga Nidra is a highly recommended practice for those healing from PTSD, trauma, other imbalances of the nervous system, and brain injury.

Clients report:

  • relief from insomnia
  • decreased anxiety and depression symptoms
  • relief from physical pain
  • overall feeling of well-being
  • less affected by chronic tension and stress
  • more relaxed in daily life
  • deep spiritual connection
  • not triggered by past trauma
  • more joyful and happy
  • able to process emotions more easily

Your guidance and support while I walk on this journey has allowed me to do things and open myself up in amazing ways. I honestly don't know any of this would have been possible without you and your knowledge. I have searched for years how to be the person I am. I'm finally seeing her! I know there's still work to do and always will be but I can't thank you enough!! You ARE amazing and beyond appreciated! A true blessing in my life, in this journey to finding me and healing myself. Your truth, light and love radiates! Thank You Kate!

Kate Shipp’s Intuitive Yoga Therapy has changed my life.

Her energy work relieved my physical as well as my emotional pain.  She taught me that my energy (or vibration) and the space I hold for myself and others is a place where I may choose love, light and harmony in any situation and when I do, my heart can feel it and my actions reveal it.

Kate’s intuitive awareness has surprised me and brought me joy.  I have learned some of the history of my soul’s journey and also discovered higher spirit realms that watch over me, protect me, heal me and guide me in my daily life. It’s most comforting.

If you are looking for private sessions in yoga, Reiki, or to explore your intuitive self you won’t be disappointed. Kate is a beautiful, wise and intuitive loving soul and I am honored that she has crossed my path in the journey to find my true authentic self.



"Kate is a gifted teacher and my trust in her guidance has led me to expand my practice by attending a restorative class that she also guides. I am only beginning to see the positive impact that yoga can have on me personally and how those intentions have a positive impact on the people around me. I look forward to the experiences of looking within and seeking a better physical and spiritual self. And I am truly grateful for the guidance and support that Kate has provided me."


"Since YTT 200 I have followed Kate. Her wisdom and grace has always been within me but better each time I do take a course I'm a little more equipped to share light with others. Kate, I'll forever follow your guiding light while I am my own. I allow myself space to be able to do the work that you have also done. To Become Thank you for all you do wise one."
