About Shelly Towns

Shelly Towns is a Body-mind Psychotherapist, deep muscle body-therapist and energy healer. She works with the physical, emotional and psychic blocks that are held in the body and energy field.

Using body-mind Psychotherapy, breath work, deep muscle body work in conjunction with her intuition, Shelly skillfully guides her clients to release these blocks. As these blocks are released, the healing flow of energy to the affected areas increases, allowing for wonderful deep transformations to take place on all levels of the person’s life.

Shelly is a very real, vibrant and grounded person. Her unique ability to combine psychological techniques along with the gentleness of spirituality creates an aura of comfort and relaxation that affects all that encounter her.

She has a genuine love of teaching and leading others to higher states of conscious awareness. With a truly healing nature, she has a strong commitment to guiding people on their journey to wholeness and fulfilment.


Shelly Towns has a gift.

And not just the gift of being a beautiful person with true leadership qualities, or the inspiring role model of a strong independent, empowered and yet gentle, giving and compassionate woman.

Her gift is an innate, God – given, divinely inspired ability to heal others with her deep muscle bodywork and body psychotherapy. And I know this because I have been lucky enough to have had extensive personal “hands on” experience of her gift and how it has transformed my life.

I started seeing Shelly sporadically from the beginning of 1999, but when I began to see the wonderful healing occurring from her sessions, I began to see her regularly, on her once – monthly visits up to Perth.

She holds an amazingly sacred space in her workroom; a feeling of peace and safety that can actually be “felt” when you step into the room, and it is a testament to her integrity, love and the presence of God, Spirit, divinity in her work.

When things aren’t flowing in my life, Shelly has been able to pin – point with divinely inspired accuracy what and where my energy is blocked and held in my body, energy that has been suppressed from certain childhood traumas and/or experiences, and through her bodywork has been able to release the pain, fear, anger and suppressed emotions, freeing me from the negative effects of those traumas and experiences for ever.

Her ability to perceive and move this blocked energy in my body and energy field and to release it, enabling it to flow back through my body, has had amazingly profound and healing effects in my life and in my ability to love and connect with other people. Each session leaves me feeling lighter, freer, and more happier and more in touch with who I am as a person, why I have come here, and what I have to give to the world as well.

After visiting Albany in Novemeber1999 and also over the new year, and having more frequent sessions with Shelly in that time, and in attending one of her profound and inspiring bi – monthly Energetic discussion evenings, I began to realise intuitively that it would be of great benefit to my healing if I actually moved to Albany for a period of time and saw Shelly on a more frequent basis – i.e. weekly or fortnightly.

When a friend “coincidentally” needed her house in Albany looked after for a few months while travelling overseas, I didn’t hesitate and moved down to Albany. And it has been amazing. The healing has compounded with the more frequent sessions and I almost feel like a different person to the one that came down to Albany only a few short months ago.

I can’t put into words just how grateful and graced I feel in knowing Shelly and in being able to experience the gift of her healing hands and presence over the last year, both of which have helped to release my pain, have brought back joy and love into my life and have led me to become a whole, happy and functioning individual once again.

An individual who has transformed with the help of Shelly’s “gift”, from a shy, introverted, fearful, closed and rigid person, to a much more loving, open, giving, trusting and physically and emotionally free and expressive being. A being that can make her dreams become a reality – dreams that were once seen as just that; as “dreams”. I am becoming free at last. Free to be what I always wanted to be. Free to be me.

And in being free to be me, I am now finally giving to the world my own special “gift”; my singing. So it is not just me that my sessions with Shelly has affected. For, with the snowball effect of what my healing can give to others, and what all her other clients’ healing can give, Shelly’s work is reaching out into the community, eventually even out into the world, helping to make all our lives and this world a happier, joyful and more loving place for everyone to live in.

Thank you, Shelly.


Shelly’s Purpose

Shelly is a humorous and inspiring facilitator whose purpose with the workshops and retreats is to help people reconnect with their spirituality, their hearts and their own truth and with each other. She also inspires and shows people how to empower themselves to overcome their fears and doubts and to reclaim their own faith and personal power and have the courage to go after their dreams.

What to Expect from a session of:

Bodymind Psychotherapy:
A typical Body Psychotherapy session would begin with a dialogue to discuss the Presenting Emotional/Physical Problem. The Psychodynamic overview (relating the issue of the present moment to the clients’ history) would determine the method used to help the client resolve the issue. Various techniques are used such as breath work, bio energetic exercises – physical movement (mobilizing the energy field), bio-energetic rollers, inner child work, voice dialogue therapy, Deep Muscle Body Work and Psychodrama. Working with the physical body increases awareness, gives the client knowledge & freedom and choice to heal any issue that is previously unresolved. The intention is always to dissolve the blockages to the life force which then permits energy to flow freely to and from the heart.

Clients are able to recognize their limitless potential and the integration into their personality affects change & deep transformation on all levels of their life.

Bodymind psychotherapy is suitable for treating people with:
Depression, Eating Disorders, Relationship Issues, Low Self-Esteem, Financial Problems, Traumas, Sexuality Issues, Sexual Abuse, Anger Management, Anxiety and Lethargy, Stress, Low Motivation, Physical Symptoms i.e. Back Pain plus many other presenting problems and is suitable for all ages.

“The more in touch we are with what we feel in any given moment, the more fulfilment and pleasure we will have in our life”
– (John Pierrakos)

Body Work:
Body Work is specially aimed at harmonizing the relationship between mind, body and spirit. Designed to help individuals release the pain of the past, this technique combines deep tissue body work with powerful breathing and acupressure. When we have pain or trauma stored in the body we need to feel it in order to heal it. Only when we bring to the surface of our mind and our physical bodies – those deeply buried wounds can we begin to consciously release them and experience greater peace. In the absence of pain in the body, only love and joy remain.

The Active Healing Session:
An active healing session means that you, the client are engaged in some activity during the session. A passive healing session has no requirements except to be there receiving the treatment without giving a conscious effort.

A passive session can be nurturing, soothing and relaxing and it is possible for some healing to take place too. The best results and life long changes are achieved when the session is focused on physical, emotional and spiritual balance and you the client consciously participate

Each of us has a heartfelt desire to experience more of life. We also all have blocks to this experience: fears, doubts, emotional or physical pain, addictions, depression or insecurities that manifest themselves in our body’s muscles, tissues, nerves, blood cells, organs, energy field and psyche.

Shelly’s task is to skilfully assist you in physically releasing these blocks and increasing the flow of blood and energy to the affected areas. Your breath and you mutual intention for enormous transformation to manifest within you will assist Shelly.

Healing is the education that your spirit deserves and is longing for.

Energy healing session:

When the body gives up its resistance to love and releases its long-held wounding – commonly experienced as pain, grief, rage, resentment, and blame – then healing can happen.  It is difficult to achieve this for yourself.  Mostly, the safety, support, and love of a healer are essential.

Shelly Towns is a genuine spiritual healer.  Her understanding of human behaviour, her communication skills, her non-judgement, her capacity to clearly identify what is happening in the mind, body and spirit of others are undeniable.  Her dedication to her gift of love and healing is spiritually guided and divinely inspired.  It is a gift from and of Divine light, and it is an act of Divine praise.  Healing is experienced as deep nurturing, an unshakeable knowing that you are loved and lovable, and a return to the state of joy you were born in.

Shelly’s connection to spirit, her certainty about who she is and what she does, and her commitment to love are what make these assertions unassailable.

It is not the environment in which Shelly works – her rooms in Perth and Albany, her Villa in Bali, or the holy place of worship at the top of the ancient Besakih Temple – but her presence, love, and connection to those people with whom she works and to those divine sources who work through and with her which create a sacred and profound place of healing for all those who are guided to her.
