Holistic Spiritual Healing & Teaching

Healing Body, Mind & Spirit

Welcome to ViTerra Healing. We are a small, warm-hearted and personalised practice that focus on holistic energy and spiritual healing and teaching.

We all know the toll today’s modern lifestyle and stress take on our vitality and sense of well-being. We often also carry the hurts from our past, suffering because we are unable to let it go and leaving us feeling fatigued, unworthy and demotivated. We may even suffer from mild depression, insomnia, low immunity and all sorts of aches, pains, illnesses and discomforts. These are all signs of a depleted of life-force energy, a blocked energy body and a body-mind-spirit imbalance.

There are many ways in which we can heal the past, embrace the present and step into the future with hope and grace. At ViTerra Healing our aim is to support you energetically on all levels towards clearing, balancing and healing body, mind and spirit. We get those juices flowing to restore your vitality and well-being and to help you heal from the discomforts and ailments caused by locked-in and unresolved emotions as well as everyday stress and strain.

Healing is primarily facilitated through Reiki Healing, Crystal Therapy and Shamanic Practices, complemented by a holistic approach to healing. For those who are interested, this is further supported through the courses and coaching offered at ViTerra Healing – what we practice we teach. Our ultimate goal is to empower you to take control of your life and embark on your personal journey of healing – body, mind and spirit.

I am looking forward to meeting you and becoming part of your journey.

Blessings, love and light


Wahine Wahine Retreat

Wahine Wahine… The Divine Feminine. She resides in all of us. She is beauty and attraction; creativity and inspiration; intuitive and empowered within. She is divinely connected to Mother Earth. Above all, she is a highly sensitive and empathic being that, in this modern world, lives as a victim of her empathic nature rather that as a fully empowered empath.

This retreat is about reconnecting with the Divine Feminine within you, honouring her and living within your true power.

The Wahine Wahine Retreat is a small bespoke retreat (maximum of 12 participants) and will be held from 14 – 16 May 2021 at the Sime Kade (Tree of Life) Bush Camp ( set in the beauty of the Magaliesberg area about an hour’s drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria.

Reiki Healing

Reiki is a natural and safe method of healing body, mind and spirit.  Today’s stressful lifestyles are particularly draining on our energy and cause many of our diseases, illnesses and daily aches and pains.  Reiki is a very soothing and relaxing treatment geared towards channeling life-force energy to heal and balance body, mind and spirit and restore your sense of vitality and well-being.

Reiki Healing Treatments are ±1.5hrs @ R450

Animal Reiki Treatments are available on request

Crystal Healing

Crystal Healing is a method of healing where crystals are placed on or around the body. Since the earliest times, crystals have been used to heal and restore body, mind and spirit. Crystals clear and balance the energy body, thereby assisting in energy healing. In today’s fast paced life-styles, we often find ourselves feeling exhausted and unbalanced.  By incorporating crystals into a healing treatment, the healing process is amplified, providing support in times of fear, lack of confidence, anxiety, trauma and other distressing situations. Crystals are valuable aids in helping us cope with daily life.

Crystal Healing Treatments are ±1.5hrs @ R450

Chakra Healing

Chakras are called our Entry Gates and are centres of activity that receive, assimilate and express life-force energy into our bodies.  They are responsible for our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual functions – body shape, glandular functioning, emotional state and behaviour.  Due to stress, trauma and illness, one or more of our Chakras can become unbalanced.  This may prevent us from having a sense of true well-being and our life-force energy to flow optimally.  Chakra healing (clearing and balancing) is achieved during a healing session using one of the following therapies: Reiki Healing, Crystal Healing or Crystal Reiki.

Chakra Healing Treatments are ±1.5hrs @ R450

Shamanic Healing

Through Shamanic healing we can heal the deepest parts of our soul. Trauma can often leave us feeling disconnected from source with parts of ourselves being “missing”. Shamanic journeying allows us to do Soul Retrieval and seek guidance from spirit to facilitate deep healing of body, mind and spirit.

Shamanic Healing Treatments are ±1.5hrs @ R500

Etheric Cord Cutting

Sometimes we can take someone’s energy or have ours taken from us. This can leave us feeling drained energetically. Etheric cords can also be used to attack psychically. It is therefore essential to ensure that all our etheric cords are healthy and maintained. If not, cutting the etheric cord can help break the energetic attachments created and can help us to let go and move on, recharge our energy, feel a sense of peace and can bring about new, positive opportunities.

Etheric Cord Cutting Healing Treatments are ±1.5hrs @ R500

Aura Cleansing and Clearing

Many of our problems are rooted in the energy field or Aura that surrounds the body.  We constantly accumulate unwanted energies in our daily lives through the food we eat, the environments we live and work in and the people that we are expose to.  This clutters and energetically “poisons” our Aura and can make us feel heavy and burdened without really having reason to be.  Cleansing the Aura through smudging will ground you and assist you in releasing energy blocks and create a better and more balanced energy to flow to supports your general health and well-being.

Aura Clearings are ±1.5hrs @ R500

Space Clearings are available on request
