Wellbeing with DavidE

Próximamente en Español

Amanae™ is a unique therapy that is used to release emotions that are trapped in the body. Through the technique of skilled hands-on bodywork, traumas and deeply held emotions like fear, anger or even joy are cleared, or rather, released from the body. Amanae™ can be a challenging work at times, but with a dedicated approach, the results are exceptionally rewarding.

When we experience a trauma, we often hold back emotions not allowing them to be fully experienced or expressed. Amanae™ works directly at the cellular level, to help bring these emotions to the surface and initiate a process of healing. Amanae™ helps you to bypass the mind, allowing true healing to occur from the core without the interpretation and false protection of the mind. Many clients have actually expressed that Amanae’s unique and fast effect is equivalent to years of psychotherapy.

For the therapist, finding the location of these held emotions is a skilled, but also a very intuitive process. All that is needed is for you to continually breathe deeply through your mouth whilst the Amanae™ practitioner, in this case David, opens up blocked doorways on your body. This process joined with your intentional breath is what allows the stuck emotions in your physical body to surface & be released. During an Amanae™ session a sacred & safe space is held for you to feel & express any emotion that might come up during this process.

amanaeAmanae™ is a hands-on therapy, where the practitioner works directly on your body. Of course, as in all our therapies, the body is respected & covered. The session always begins in the heart, because the heart is our core where everything is held and also where our self-healing energy is stored. During the session, it is normal to feel intense emotions; cry, sweat, and mumble or even to shout or laugh. There is no right or wrong way to experience Amanae™. What matters is that you give yourself permission to feel & express the emotions that you have stored within you.

The focus of Amanae is to activate the unfelt emotions and trauma, letting us feel, shift and clear this old baggage, which leaves us lighter and more in our centre, so we can take back our power and chart our own course in our lives.

Amanae™ is a process that requires a commitment to our selves. But in it, are many gifts for us to find, such as: self healing, self discovery, self love, freedom, empowerment, joy and so much more.

Who is it for?

How is it done?

The work is done on a massage table. Every session begins with opening the heart (front or back), and then one area or multiple areas will be worked. I tune in for guidance on which areas to work for each session (there are over 200 doorways in the body and any number of them may be worked on).

I offer a variety of treatment plans:
  • 1½ – 2 hour private sessions
  • 2 – 3 Day intensive personal workshops
  • 6-day intensive live-in group workshops (which require additional practitioners and multiple participants)

Please read the client’s Amanae™ testimonials to understand a little more about the process. But remember – you do not need to understand it in order to release it, just feel it!

Please review the frequently asked questions or contact us directly if you have any questions or concerns.


  • “Hello David,
    I have been so thrilled & happy about the session on Sunday! I had no idea it was going to be so powerful! way much more than I expected! I HAVE SENT YOU TONS OF BLESSINGS, & THANK YOU TIME & TIME AGAIN! My excitement have left me speechless, so I've been quietly taking it all in.
    Oh yes, I think that some physical healing took place as well, because my right elbow was very sore from tendonitis for many months and suddenly stopped hurting that day.
    Till next time, with a thankful heart”

  • “Thank you for the ses­sion yes­ter­day. It was like noth­ing I have ever expe­ri­enced. I slept like a baby last night almost 9 hours. This is so strange for me! I would like to see you again the next time you visit and see where these ses­sions take me. Thank you again for pro­vid­ing such a com­fort­able environment.”

  • "Hi David,
    I just wanted to let you know how I have been since yesterday. I came home feeling very peaceful & continue to feel that way. I notice that my communication with my husband is softer & that is especially noticeable since we are having a large party here this evening. I also had several dreams which indicated new beginnings and release from bonds.
    I look forward to our next session on Wednesday."
