The following are excerpts from various press releases about Alison's work as a healer.
ZEST magazine, August 2000
"Women who seem to have harnessed the extraordinary power of touch" Alison Murtough VortexHealer"I'd always been able to get rid of people's headaches by just placing my hands on their head. One day, my boss saw me healing the headache of a colleague in the kitchen at work. She recognised I was doing spiritual healing and invited me to her spiritual development group. I joined the group and learned how to meditate and work on my gift. It developed into clairvoyance, which means 'seeing clearly', so I'm able to see energy blocks in people, as well as 'hear' health-related information about a client."With VortexHealing, I channel light through myself and into the person needing healing and it appears as a whirlwind, moving stagnant energy and replacing it with positive, healthy vibrations. During a session , I ask the client to lie down on a couch, fully clothed. I tune in to their subconscious images resulting from past trauma or present physical or emotional stress. These can range from conditions such as asthma acne or mild depression through to rage or flashbacks from being raped. I've worked on people with chronic fatigue syndrome (also known as ME) who’ve come in for two sessions and walked away completely better. I've also treated a musician with manic depression by picking up his subconscious images. I 'saw' that he was in an underground maze, unable to get out. I got him to retrace his steps and come out into the daylight and then I melted away the first picture. After just one session he got over his depression.When I'm working, I just open the chakra at the top of my head and then allow the energy to flow through me via my palm chakras (which I lay on the client). I'm as amazed at the effects as my clients are.
"ALTERNATIVES MAGAZINE:THE EXPRESS Spring 2000 Journalist - Annabel Cutler: Body and Soul section"Half an hour's pampering worked magic on my manic mood""Spiritual healer Alison, wafted me into a state-of-the-art treatment room. At its centre was a bed surrounded by pink rose quartz. Alison claims that by using the energy of pure white light with the help of crystals she can resolve the effects of past trauma. She then "sees" and changes images stored in the subconscious as she works over your body. The environment was so serene that within seconds I was gone with the fairies. By the end of the session Alison's calming hands and the luxury of having half-an-hour's horizontal pampering had worked their magic on my manic mood. After her sessions, Alison goes through what she has "seen" in each client. It was like going to see a fortune-teller and just as fascinating. Her mind also "tells" her what homeopathic remedies to prescribe."
