Hello! Welcome to Swallow Hill.
My name is Jacqueline Feely and I am the proprietor of Swallow Hill Center. I think of Swallowhill as a safe space to heal and have worked with clients from all walks of life to help improve their health and well being with a variety of therapies. I began my career as a psychologist but found myself on a journey towards complementary therapies as I battled with a number of different issues such as chronic fatigue, depression and recurrent infections. Traditional medicine wasn’t giving me answers and I found myself searching in health food shops for ways to help myself.
We work on a one to one basis with clients both in-person and online. workshops are in the areas of mindfulness, mindful movement and dance, and we facilitate breath workshops and training. Swallowhill is a safe space where individuals can come and stay and receive one to one sessions in craniosacral therapy, mindfulness and Transformational Breath.
At Swallowhill we believe our health is our wealth. We offer an array of workshops, classes and therapies that can help you on your health journey. Check out our therapy pages for a full list of holistic options for your mind, body and spirit.
Healing isn’t a linear journey and traditional medicine doesn’t always give us the answers we’re looking for.
Whenever I am feeling out of balance physically or emotionally, or confused and indecisive, Jacqueline's Cranio-sacral work serves to reset my system. After a session or two I feel more at peace. I have better balance between head and heart and I feel re-energised and re-centred.
I felt completely safe, held and nurtured in Jacqueline’s treatments. Her beautiful healing energy with the gentleness of the cranio-sacral work allows a powerful healing session to unfold. I can only recommend Jacqueline’s work.
I have participated in Jaqueline’s online classes and her honesty and gentle approach have made me remember how much Mindfulness had helped me cope better in my past. Jacqueline’s classes are perfect to help calm you and the exercise’s for the week that she gives gave more discipline, this was something that I needed to keep my mind active and not fall into the monkey mind chatter that went on in my head at times. I found my week would be more positive and things I would avoid doing were done.I highly recommend Jacqueline and her classes for anyone wishing to find more balance and time for you in their life.
In November 2019 my Naturopath suggested that, in her opinion, I could benefit from Cranial Sacral Therapy (CST). I am now 4 weeks into my treatment programme with Jacqueline Feely, with an unbelievably good result physically, psychologically, and emotionally. Since I commenced my cranial sacral therapy my body has been gently releasing pain, physical and emotional, in a most extraordinary way to
the extent that today, while not yet through my CST programme, my body is practically pain and tension free, and my mental clarity is nothing less than amazing. I thank God for the professional and highly skilled cranial sacral therapist that Jacqueline is alongside her affable personality.
I first encountered Jacqueline Feely back in 2005 when she was recommended to me by a friend for her craniosacral work. Her work and knowledge in this field is outstanding, and through her work has helped to reduce my migraines significantly. Jacqueline is outstanding at what she does, but more important she is a woman of integrity and honesty. She offers her clients a safe space without judgement.
My most recent encounter with Jacqueline was through an online mindfulness programme she was teaching and with my hand on my heart, the work I have done with her to date has changed my life. She has given me the tools to look at my own life through a new lens and with renewed self-love and acceptance. Her compassion and understanding is like no other. Her teachings on compassion are profound, and something everybody should be taught from a very early age.
I found the Mindfulness and self- compassion online classes so relaxing and helpful to me in not getting caught up in thoughts of the future and anticipation. Your presentation was excellent you have a very calming presence and your explanation of mindfulness was very clear and off particular interest to me was the more you practice it, you can rewire your brain to stress. I will definitely continue with the practices I learned on a daily basis.
I found these classes extremely helpful to me in committing to a daily mindfulness practice. Jacqueline you have a lovely soft spoken and gentle voice and it was very easy for me to go deep in the practices. I found that very interesting. You spoke very clearly and you seemed very relaxed in yourself while you spoke, as if you live and breathe mindfulness with passion.
I went for a session of Cranio-sacral therapy as a recommendation from a friend. I didn’t really know what to expect. I had three sessions over three weeks, and I found answers to questions, that I didn’t know I needed to ask. It led me to resolve something that needed to be healed. It was a wonderful experience for me. I will continue to incorporate Cranio-sacral therapy into my wellness plan, and I highly recommend a visit to Jacqueline.
To be held totally in a breath session there has to be great trust, encouragement and gentleness. I found this completely working with Jacqueline, both in person and online. Breath work is a powerful tool of healing especially when working with such a trustworthy therapist, I am truly blessed to have worked with you,
