Olivia Wood Healing, The Healing Network

 Image credit: borisaustin.com

Namaste, my name is Olivia Wood. Welcome to my blog.

I started Healing Beauty in 2010 when I first became interested in alternative health and natural beauty. My intention was to find alternatives to chemical-ridden products to use on my skin. Being pretty disillusioned with Western medicine (and Western society’s attitude to wellbeing in general), I was interested in learning about more holistic ways of looking after myself.

I have tried and tested many natural beauty products, alternative treatments and practices since then, in London, India, Ibiza, Thailand and around the world, while pursuing another of my passions – travel.

For personal and professional reasons I am dedicated to my pursuing my own healing journey and sharing it with you here.

I am also dedicated to sharing the healing journeys of other SEEKERS like me and to sharing HEALERS with anyone out there in need of healing (isn’t that us all?)

Join THE HEALING NETWORK to find healers in your area gifted with huge hearts and magical hands.

Be part of a HUGELY important, growing CONVERSATION about alternative ways to look after your HEALTH, HEALING and HAPPINESS.

While you may find occasional product reviews on this site, the focus NOW is on alternative medicine, self-healing practices, yoga, meditation, holistic healing modalities, psychedelic drugs, shamanism, plant medicine, vegan & vegetarian diet, nutrition, self-love, Tantra, and SO MUCH MORE.

Along my travels I interview HEALERS and SEEKERS and I share their stories here. You are truly inspiring souls – thank you for SHARING!

As always, I would love to hear from YOU with any feedback.

Get in touch with questions, to book an appointment with me, or to share your own healing journeys.

  1. Hi Olivia,
    I just read your great kundalini article on flip chart. I want you to know about my work and books as I am certain you will get requests for help from others who see your article, I am a transpersonal psychologist and non-dual teacher who has written and specialized in spiritual emergence issues in the U.S. (With many clients in Europe) for over 30 years, following my own experience of awakening. My websites are kundaliniguide.com and awakeningguide.com and I have two new books on amazon with the same titles. I originally published “Energies of Transformation: A Guide to the Kundalini Process” based on my doctoral research 20 years ago and have worked with several thousands of people over the years. My books are self help guides for people stuck or concerned while in this process and address many issues that arise. It is wonderful that you moved so fully into an awakened realization. Many people need help with this and I expect you will find ways to assist them. Please do check out my work. Have a wonderful time with your fresh awareness. You may want to connect with Rupert Spira and Jeff Foster, both awakened non dual teachers who live in the U.K. If I can be of any help to you let me know. Blessings, Bonnie Greenwell.

    • Hi Bonnie. Thank you for your message! I will certainly check out your websites and books. I follow Jeff already actually on Facebook. Thanks for all the advice. I’m overwhelmed at the response on elephant journal to the article – so heart-warming to see others share their similar stories and feel I can help in some way open a dialogue that unites us in this journey x
      P.S. love that your comment came in at 11.11 ;)

  5. Hi, I’m trying to replace all my skincare with natural products so I’m enjoying reading through your blog for recommendations. Thanks, I’m looking forward to reading more.
