The Totally Unique Toddler to Teen Healing System Delivered to Your Door. The Power Is In Your Hands

Updated: Feb 8, 2021

I have had the pleasure of treating children in The Clonmel Acupuncture & Therapy Centre for 15 years. In that time they have taught me so much invaluable knowledge.

Children under the age of 7 have a very open intuition. Seeing and feeling much more than we realise. How many of you have followed your babies gaze as they appear to be smiling at nothing?! This is a time when they are naturally drawn to touch, smell and keep all things sparkly. Crystals are usually a big hit and over the years I have given away many crystals in the Clinic because a child has fallen in love with its magic, colour and energy.

I AM ONE OF A KIND Package is a healing system carried out by you, under the guidance of me the therapist in the comfort of your own home. Children feel much more comfortable in this environment. They generally love roller bottles, all ages enjoy the fact they have their very own special blend of essential oils and crystals.

What’s in this blend?

Whilst each synergy blend is hand made to order, if I feel the need to change the mix I will. Predominately the 3 essential oils I use are:

Lavender Oil ( Lavandula Angustifloria)

Lavender helps the circadian rhythm keep balanced. The circadian rhythm is a 24 hour internal clock that is running in the background of your brain, and cycles between sleepiness and alertness at regular intervals. Your sleep/wake cycle. At different stages of a child's development this cycle is thrown out of balance. Teething is usually the first. I also find when the adult back teeth start to develop this brings a new wave of anxiety at around 6-7 years of age. Hormonal changes from 8 years all the way through to teenage years have an impact on this cycle.

Lavender Oil helps to keep this balanced. When the oil is inhaled, the scent molecules in the essential oil travel from the olfactory nerves (nose) directly to the brain and especially impact the amygdala, the emotional centre of the brain.

In my clinical practise sleep is usually one of the most common issues. As sleep is paramount to good health and vitality in children, using an oil to aid sleep is absolutely essential for all ages 0-18 years.

Lavender oil has so many other benefits for children. Its strong anti-bacterial and anti-fungal uses also help to boost immunity.

On a spiritual level Lavender oil works very closely with the crown chakra. This chakra is located at the top of the child's head. During early childhood all the energy centres are developing, growing and also opening. Lavender oil places a protective energy around the crown chakra. It connects to the energy of the crystal amethyst, used in the blend. This helps each individual child to grow within their own time, allowing their etheric connection to their parents to deepen. Our children are far more awake spiritually than we are.

This blend allows the energy of Ascended Master Saint Germain and the violet flame, the flame of freedom, into the child's aura. I believe in this way children can grow physically, emotionally and spiritually with much greater ease.

The second oil used is Bergamot. Bergamot Oil carries a beautiful, uplifting scent. This helps gently lift a child's mood. One of my favorite essential oils for creating a calm aura. I use this oil in very small doses for younger children and increase through the teenage years. I have found this oil has a very emotionally uplifting effect, physically I find it beneficial for respiratory and digestive issues. Fussy eaters respond well to this oil.

Bergamot oil connects to the colour green and yellow. For children it helps gently open and protect their heart and solar plexus chakras. The Ascended Master Hilarion connects with Bergamot Oil. For children this helps them develop gently. The world can seem overwhelming for many children, and Hilarion gently cleanses and recharges their energy.

I have found this particularly beneficial when working with children on the autism spectrum. This energy really resonates with many of the children that I have worked with over the years. It allows their hearts to open gently, safely and learn to trust and to love themselves and others on a deeper level.

The third oil is Vetiver. This is a dense, thick, heady oil. I adore the smell. This oil is particularly grounding for children. It really helps switch the mind off from excessive intellectual activity. Perfect to use after a long period of study. I use this oil on children with separation anxiety and during times of emotional upheaval. Whilst lavender calms the mind, vetiver calms the muscles and body.

On a spiritual level vetiver oil grounds and protects children allowing them to connect with their earth star. This chakra is located about 12 inches below their feet. I am very passionate that in order for our children to live in happiness going forward this chakra must be developed and protected. The whole existence of humanity is dependent on the interconnectivity of nature itself. The Earth Star is the energetic link we all have to Mother Earth (Gaia).

This really helps our children to connect in a positive, deeper way to their outside environment, nature as well as other people. Helping them develop heartfelt connections.

The crystals used in I AM ONE OF A KIND are Amethyst, as mentioned earlier, great for overactive minds and sleep. Sodalite allows freedom to express themselves to others. Smokey Quartz is a powerful anti-anxiety crystal for both children and adults. The three crystals in the synergy blend help to create an energetic cocoon when placed on the body. Particularly useful at bedtime or at times when they need to unwind and feel calm.

Children naturally love acupressure. As there are no needles involved, this treatment does not come with a feeling of anxiety. Each child is seen as an individual and using Zoom we establish what your child needs help with at this time.This is an optional extra. For those wanting to try Acupressure at home try this simple video. and I recommend that teenagers try out my free guided acupressure videos on my YouTube channel

Acupressure is an ancient healing system that re-balances the energetic flow of the body. When Qi (energy) is blocked dis-ease occurs. In children this is often presented in digestive issues ie constipation, tonsillitis, eczema, asthma, insomnia, repeat viral infections, as well as many other emotional issues.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine the Kidneys store Essence and govern birth, growth, reproduction and development.

The ability to grow physically, develop mentally, reach sexual maturation and eventually produce his or her own offspring is largely determined by the nature of the Kidney Essence.

Kidney Essence plays an especially important role in the 1st year of a child's life, when the growth rate is phenomenal.

Kidney Essence also controls the phases of heightened growth and development that happens in cycles of 7 years for girls and 8 years for boys. During this transition from one cycle to the next strong robust Kidney Essence fuels the changes, and ensures the child remains healthy whilst this flux in growth occurs.

So you can see why in TCM Kidney Essence is fundamental to the entire health and development of a child.

When the acupressure points are stimulated by the Acu-Wand energy is kept in balance. I find children respond very well to the little and often approach. Using breath work alongside the acupressure stimulation is very relaxing, but also fun. This is a great time for one to one connection for parents and child. It can help strengthen the bond and also help clear away any negative attachments. When guiding teenagers I encourage them to treat themselves and find this really works well.

I AM ONE OF A KIND system is a totally unique way of treating children from toddlers to young adults. Through the combination of the 3 Elements Aromatherapy, Acupressure and Crystals this system offers the power to heal in a gentle, yet very powerful way. I believe this system works and supports children on all levels. There has never a better time for this system to be born than in 2020.

When treating teenagers especially during Covid 19 I am very aware of the "pandemic effect" and how it is presenting itself with teens. So many have lost their support bubbles of friends, class is now online. Teenagers are now having to deal with 4 types of stress.

Environmental Stress - caused by, for example long term exposure to blue light, noise from other members of their family, constantly interacting with their phones.

Chemical Stress - caused by over load of caffeine, sugar, junk food, and in some cases recreational drug use.

Mental Stress - especially now for leaving cert students, anguish over uncompleted work, doing exams, unemployment, financial worries.

Emotional Stress - relationship problems, feeling isolated from friends, and grief.

These different types of stress occur in varying degrees and I select the essential oils and crystals that will be most effective for each individual depending on how they are feeling at this time.

Anxiety only becomes a problem when it is excessive. Unfortunately during this pandemic there are many genuine sources of anxiety.

Anxiety can give rise to many physical symptoms; tight muscles, grinding teeth at night, IBS, irritability, migraines, insomnia, exhaustion, palpitations and many more.

Keeping the communication flowing, getting plenty of physical exercise. Eating a diet rich in fruit, vegetables and plenty of protein are all positive daily habits. Avoiding sleeping late and waking at noon is also recommended as this can really impact energy levels in teenagers. " I asked Katie to create an Aroma Synergy Blend for my son who is in his 20s and suffers with depression, panic attacks and severe anxiety. Firstly I'd like to give u a little background on how I know Katie and how I personally as well as my son have benefitted over the yrs with firstly Katie's acupuncture and aromatherapy... I met Katie in around 2001. I had so many things wrong in my life that when Katie decided to do acupuncture I was actually one of her case studies..... I suffered with stage 4 Endometriosis and as a result couldn't have children. This brought a lot of its own problems which are associated with Endometriosis but the worst was the depression.......In 1999 the only choice my husband and I felt we had was to have IVF and thankfully we were successful first time and had a beautiful baby boy..... I longed for more children but with the Endometriosis this was not possible unless I went through IVF again and I really felt I couldn't go through the whole process again ..... When I met Katie she was there every step of the way with me and when she decided to do acupuncture she felt I would be an ideal candidate for her....., Katie treated me for 2 years for Endometriosis & depression while in college and at the end of the 2 yrs I couldn't believe it my husband and I were having a baby... My gynaecologist couldn't believe it either..... So exactly 6 yrs after my first son I gave birth to another little boy but the most amazing thing my gynaecologist couldn't believe my Endometriosis was gone. Over the years Katie has helped my kids with acupuncture and acupressure points when it came to common cold or general ailments kids pick up both of my kids are asthmatic and Katie worked with them again with Acupuncture & Aromatherapy ... ... So really Katie was my first person to go to if anything was wrong ...... As my eldest son was going through his teenage years I started to notice him getting bouts of depression but I put it all down to hormones but as time has gone on his depression had got worse and he would wake up at night in severe panic attacks so bad he wd be sweating and shaking feeling like he was having a heart attack.... His t shirt would be drenched from the panic attacks. I also noticed as time went on he was getting nervous over the least thing e.g. if he felt we were going too fast in the car or if we left the house he wd ask how long we wd be and if we were late he would have himself worked up into a state thinking something had happened to us ..... We also noticed he wasn't hanging out with his friends as much but thankfully through all of this we have always had a great relationship and he would talk to my husband and I about how he felt..... Then Covid hit and I could see by my son things were getting worse for him the panic attacks were more frequent he didn't want to leave his room he didn't want me to go to the shop in case I'd get Covid ... He was getting more and more depressed he would stay in his room all day didn't want to talk or eat which meant either my husband or I would have to be with him we were that concerned ...... My husband and I had been talking about medical intervention which is not something I really wanted my 20 yr old to go through and be put on medication and the side effects medications often bring with them.....We as parents we at our wits end watching our fabulously talented friendly out going son suddenly become a shell of himself.... He hated the way he was feeling but there seemed to be nothing helping him to get out of this dark hole..... Luckily because I was so friendly with Katie I opened up to her about it as it's not something we as a nation want to discuss especially when ur kid is so young .... Immediately Katie made one her Aroma role on Blends for my son which he was to use twice a day on his wrists and d nape of his neck plus the sole of his feet so he could get a night sleep...... and other acupressure points....I was so desperate I would try anything to make my son better ...... After a few days of using Katie's Aroma blend I slowly began to see the light come back in my sons eyes by the end of the week he showered and came out of his room... This was huge but like everything we didn't want to jinx anything Katie kept in constant contact with me or I with her about my sons progress.... I can now finally tell u after a month or so down the road of using the Aroma Blend Katie made for my son he is out walking 5km everyday working out in his home gym .... On the phone to his friends and even though this lockdown is harder he is studying online for college and enjoying it...... My son is back without pharmaceutical medication... He still uses Katie's Aroma Blend everyday but the difference in my son is truly amazing and life changing..... If any other teenager or adult is suffering with their mental health please seek help my son is an example that their is light at the end of the tunnel...I would highly recommend the 3 Elements Aroma Roll on Blends without hesitation..... Katie is so approachable and understanding and each person is made feel they are the only client she has."

For parents and those aged 18 onwards I strongly recommend this
