Restoring the balance

in your life

Welcome to Shona Rae Therapies for Reflexology, Reiki and Crystal Therapy in Dundee and Tayport. Rejuvenating therapies for your relaxation, well-being and restoration.

Hello and thank you for visiting!

My name is Shona Rae and I am a fully qualified and insured Reflexologist, Reiki Master and Crystal Energy Therapist working in Dundee and North East Fife.

Working in this field for over 15 years, my therapies offer an holistic approach to your general health. This means that as a practitioner I look at and treat the whole individual and the treatments I provide aim to play a role in helping to restore balance and maintain optimal well-being. They can help to provide support for people living with health conditions alongside their conventional medical care but should not be considered as a substitute for that care. Always, first and foremost, seek the advice of your doctor if you have any health issues.

Do you find that everyone talks about stress? It seems that most people are experiencing some level of stress in their lives and the truth is, when we suffer the effects of stress, neither our minds nor our bodies function as well as they should. So why not look for a way that can support you to redress that physical and emotional imbalance by finding a therapy that can help you to relax and restore your well-being.

A relaxing, calming period of therapeutic one-to-one time with an experienced therapist with an empathetic ear - what's not to like? The only way you'll know is to give it a go! We all deserve some 'time out' for ourselves, don't we?!

NEW: From August 2023 I now provide relaxing and restoring Crystal Energy Therapy!....see below......

Reflexology - Having originally trained as a nurse, I went on to study with the International Institute of Reflexology (IIR) and graduated as a practitioner in 2007. I now bring my clinical knowledge to my therapies which allows me a better understanding of the issues you may be living with.

My Reiki training began in 2011 and culminated in me achieving Master/Teacher level in 2017. My belief is that Reiki can work on many levels - physical, emotional, mental and spiritual - to bring clarity and healing to situations, present and past. Without perhaps being fully aware of it we can be deeply affected by events in our past and/or present and these can cause us physical or emotional pain and suffering. Reiki may be helpful in bringing clarity to a situation. Other times all you may need is a session of it's restful and calming energy to bring you peace.

Crystal Energy Therapy - I have been interested in the beauty of crystals for a long time but gradually became more involved in their therapeutic use, finding that they can be very helpful in my life in lots of different ways. I recently qualified as a Crystal Energy Therapist so that I can work with the transformative energy of crystals to encourage your body's self-healing capabilities and to support you to bring balance back into your being.


REFLEXOLOGY has its roots in ancient cultures but is now very much up to date. The aim of the treatment is to bring everything into balance and we do that by applying finger pressure to points(reflexes)/areas on the feet that represent all the organs, glands and systems of the body. An experienced therapist can feel different textures under the skin. These will often indicate that a particular reflex is a little out of balance and requires some extra attention. You may feel different sensations, some of which may be a little uncomfortable fleetingly.

The overall experience of the treatment should be one of relaxation with the intention of bringing an increase in well-being thus helping to relieve symptoms of stress.

How many of us can truthfully claim to have proper balance in our lives? While Reflexology can't claim to be able to sort your bank balance or your work-life balance, it can offer you a place and time set aside for yourself on a regular basis where you can reflect on the importance of that balance.

The benefits of complementary therapies are unique to the individual, however, regular sessions may help to reduce the effects of the stress response and in doing this you may gradually feel your resilience building again.

REIKI is an energy therapy that works on balancing the physical, mental and emotional energy.

Everything in the universe has it's own vibrational frequency and that includes us! However, when we absorb all the stressful energy around us - difficult time at work, family pressures, money concerns or any number of other stressors, we can begin to feel worn out, we maybe don't sleep as well, we get irritable and feel lethargic. All these are signs that our energy is depleted and our batteries need recharging!

We can on for so long like this - our amazing bodies are designed to deal with short-term stress (fight or flight response) but if we continue in this mode long-term and do nothing to address it we may start to exhibit physical or mental symptoms.

There are many, many simple ways of being kind to ourselves to help bring us back into balance and Reiki is one of them. It is a wonderfully calming, nurturing and peaceful high-vibrational energy that can support you when you need it - mentally, physically or emotionally.

Crystal Energy Therapy

Have you ever been interested in crystals? Maybe you just think they look beautiful, which they do but, in fact, they carry the most amazing transformational energy.

Utilising the energy of the different crystal colours and with feedback from you, we work to restore the energy in the chakras and then reactivate their energy.

If you are going through some very difficult issues, it may be necessary to have a course of 3 sessions to help your energy back to a place where you feel much more resilient. Individuals will respond to treatment differently.

The real challenge for each of us is to make time in our busy days to focus on ourselves. We can all find valid reasons why we don't have time - work, children, family life etc etc - but perhaps we need to recognise that we deserve a little time to breathe in our hectic schedules. An hour here and there to recharge and make sure we have the energy to continue to cope with all the things that get thrown at us in our day to day lives!

Reflexology treatments

It is most common to carry out Reflexology on the feet although if this is not possible for you, it can be performed on the hands.

You will be asked to sit on a reclining chair and the session will last approximately 50 minutes. During this time you may feel different sensations in your feet and body including some surprisingly tender spots that you were not previously aware of. This usually indicates an area that requires a little extra work.

All the gland, organs and systems of the body are mapped out on the feet so this is a comprehensive, holistic treatment.

The outcomes I hope to achieve for you are deep relaxation, improved quality of sleep, and a general feeling of enhanced well-being which will go a long way to restoring your resilience.

Reiki treatments

Reiki is what you may think of as ‘hands on’ healing. The practitioner is trained to channel Reiki energy through her/himself to the client.

It is usual to lie still and quiet throughout the session. I may place my hands on your body at various points (with your permission) or above the body depending on where I am drawn to work.

You may feel different sensations in your body such as seeing colours with your eyes closed, feeling warmth, coolness, tingling or you may feel a little emotional - these are normal with Reiki. You may feel none of these and that's ok too - there are no rights and wrongs - the main thing is that you feel more relaxed when you leave than when you arrived!

After the session I will have a short chat with you about what you may have experienced during the session.

Crystal Energy treatments

At the beginning of a session we will have a chat and I will ask you some questions regarding your current physical, mental and emotional energy levels and how you are experiencing them in relation to what is going on in your life at the moment.

You will then be asked to lie on the treatment couch and be made as comfortable as possible. You can have gentle music on in the background (as with all my therapies) if you wish and a blanket to keep you warm.

I will then begin to administer particular crystals dependent on what you have told me at our initial chat. As the crystals emit their energy you may feel some warmth, coolness, tingling or energy moving through your body. This is quite normal.

At the end of the session we can have a chat about your experience during the session.

Some frequently asked questions...

Are you qualified and insured?

I am fully qualified and insured in the above therapies.

I abide by my professional code of ethics and conduct and carry out the required hours of Continuing Professional Development annually.

Having previously been a nurse I have a clinical background which increases my knowledge and understanding of most issues you may be experiencing.

How do you look after the information I provide you with?

I look after your information with great care and have a Privacy Policy which is in line with the General Data Protection Regulations 2018.

I am professionally required to keep records of your treatments securely for 8 years and I do not give your details out to unless you ask me to, or I am required to do so by law.

Can you diagnose my health problems?

Reflexology, Reiki and Crystal Energy practitioners do not claim to diagnose or cure but during a session we may pick up areas through the feet in Reflexology or energy in Reiki or Crystal therapy that feel out of balance. We, therefore, give these areas extra attention.

Our treatments take an holistic approach to the whole person and aim to bring the whole into balance.

How often will I need a treatment?

Everyone is different and the response to Reflexology, Reiki and Crystal Energy Therapy can be immediate or sometimes take longer than one appointment, but often benefits can be seen after 3 to 4 sessions.

Many of my clients return every 2 to 4 weeks and find that this is what they require to get the support they need in their busy lives and to maintain their well-being. Other clients prefer to come for a few weekly consecutive treatments when they feel a little overwhelmed physically, mentally or emotionally and this gives them the pick up they need to feel better again.

I need to emphasise again that Reflexology, Reiki or any other Complementary Therapy is just that, it complements the care that your GP or other medical professional will provide and should not be considered as a substitute for their care.

Who looks after you if you don't look after yourself?

In 2021/22 17 million work days were lost due to work-related stress, depression or anxiety. This has increased since 2018/19 pre-pandemic levels and affects 914,000 of workers. (Source

None of us want to be one of these statistics!

Let's face it, we all face stressors in our hectic lives whether at work or at home and often we allow the symptoms to build and build, thinking they will go away by themselves, until they manifest as a physical or mental health issue.

Is it not better to invest in some self care before this happens? Whatever you like to do to release the pressure valve, make some time in your day to do it - get out in nature, do some meditation, have a soak in a relaxing bath before bed or consider a complementary therapy. It's exhausting running on empty all the time!
