Reiki Testimonial by Annie C. I am 57 years old and recently had a bad fall off my horse. I had badly bruised ribs and lots of trauma to the entire right side of my body. I had my trainer take me directly to Carol’s at Nan’s Rock Shop for a Reiki session; I felt sure that this would help my recovery. I have taken my Level I Reiki so I have a good understanding and belief in what Reiki is and how it works. I know that this quick response helped me to heal much faster than I would have normally. I had a follow-up Reiki session in a week. It is now 2 ½ weeks and I am back in the saddle and going on a 5 hour trail ride tomorrow. I seriously believe Reiki made a difference. Six years ago I came off my horse the same way and I was 2 months before I could get back on. I think that says it all. Thanks Carol written Oct 2012
Reflexology Testimonial by Lisa F. I have known Carol for a number of years as a friend, sister, teacher, mentor and healer. The Universe led me to her exactly when I needed and it still does to this day. I have received various treatments at the Shop and have found them all wonderful and healing but above all the most luxurious is Reflexology. During the course of Reiki treatments with Carol she would always ask me if I would like a little dessert at the end. That dessert was reflexology. It was wonderful. I like to say that it is better than sex. As a person who feels that the seat of my soul (and the last place that issues resolve in my body) are my feet, I always said to myself that I needed to book a full reflexology session with Carol but I never did. Until this past spring. That session was one of the most life changing treatments that I have ever received (and I have had many). Not only does it relax and soothe a person and pamper your feet (Gals who doesn’t need some happy feet?) but it was an emotional and spiritual release for me. Carol is truly talented in many ways but I feel that Reflexology is one of her true callings. By far more relaxing than a visit to a spa and more life changing than a trip to a sage this is what everyone needs to experience at least once in their lifetime. Trust me when I say that reflexology with Carol is better than sex J !!! written August 28, 2012
Energy-ssage (Relaxation Massage)Testimonial: by Daniel Schwager
The power of reiki is something beyond what the mind can comprehend. That is exactly what makes it so special. It connects to parts of your mind, body and soul that you weren’t even aware of. It lifts away inner emotional pain that had long ago been shifted away from your thoughts and thoroughly comforts you in all the right ways! I have noticed a great impact on my inner emotional state after receiving reiki therapy. My favorite being Carol’s wonderful combo of reiki, swedish massage and reflexology. Everyone knows a massage is great, but she puts the cherry on top including a magnificent selection of essential oils with her amazing masseus skills. As for reflexology, the best foot massage ever! What makes it so? The fact that the muscles in your feet connect to various parts of your body which when sore can certainly effect your emotions. When I get Carol’s combo therapy I find I have an after glow that lasts at least 2 weeks. It is quite a unique feeling. After getting into such methods of healing I am going to be doing this for the rest of my life. That’s how much I enjoy it. Carol really has a good touch to her. She is not the type of person who is doing this for the money, she really cares about the people she meets which makes even more of a good impact! written Aug 21, 2012
Nan’s Rock Shop & Spiritual Center Testimonial by visiting presenter Chris Lee from BC. Nan’s Rock Shop, is like an oasis in the desert of the Annapolis Valley. From the first time I chatted with Carol over the phone from BC, to the moment I walked in the store, I was greeted with an openness and confidence that this metaphysically holistic business radiates through and through. Carol is not only very organized, but she knows her customers and what will work in her centre. This made it very easy for me to feel comfortable that she could promote my Talk “Journey Into Past Lives” with thoughtful understanding of Past Life Regression and how I work. She made my wife, Debbie & I very welcome in the days that followed the talk. Her energy and passion for what she does, coupled with the degree of quality practitioners she invites to work out of the centre shines through. We all learned so much from each other. I have to wonder if finding Nan’s Rock Shop & Carol was part of our destiny!

Reiki Testimonial: by Elizabeth Cushing, Kingston, NS
I WAS GIVEN A GIFT That gift was Carol Layton and her business, Nan’s Rock Shop & Spiritual Center. In a time of spiritual, physical & mental crisis in the family, I was guided to drop in to the Center. I had never been there before. I was immediately welcomed into a knowledgeable, warm, caring environment and went home with some healing materials. I was so drawn to the Center and Carol, that I eventually offered to volunteer. Although I knew nothing about crystals, with Carol’s guidance and nurturing, I have learned a lot. After taking training with Carol, a Reiki Master/Teacher, and becoming a Certified Reiki Practitioner, I opened my own practice. I stand in awe of the Reiki balancing energy and my ability to channel it. I do what I love so I love what I do. Carol continues to guide & teach me and I love my volunteer days in the shop and all the interesting people I meet. My personal growth and physical, mental and spiritual well being have improved so much since my Reiki training, that I will continue taking higher levels of training.
The various practitioners associated with the Center have been a joy to meet and study with, as I learn from them as well. Words really cannot do justice to my gratitude for this wonderful opportunity that I have been given.

Reflexology Testimonial: by Janet Hogg, Alysford, NS What does reflexology mean to me? I was asked that question the other day and the only response I could think of was my saving grace. I was being scheduled for lower back surgery and was loosing the feeling in my right arm. I was dealing with specialists and physiotherapists. I was being helped out of bed and my husband and I were talking of a chair lift and rails for the stairs. I was told I would never to be able to ride horses again and I was to be preparing for a life of pain and depression. Hence starts my first session. No feeling in my right leg and I was giving up. Within a few sessions there was a noticeable difference. The back specialist in Halifax watched as my lower back discs “ heal themselves” he says The neurologist working on my right side watched as the nerves started connecting again and the feeling was coming back right to the tips of my fingers and I can ride horses. Yes, reflexology was and is my saving grace. I continue with my sessions and it about every 4 to 6 weeks as preventative and maintenance. My body and my feet tell me if it has been too long. I would recommend this treatment to anyone. I am not saying it is a cure all for everyone but it will help and look what it did for me. Written July 2011
Tarot Testimonial: by Melia Helson, Middleton, NS I booked a Tarot reading with Carol thinking she would simply do a spread and read the cards. Carol does so much more than that. She started by reading my energy and identifying what issue I needed to work on. Bang on!! Then she read and cleared my chakras. During the reading, I got stuck on one of the cards and she initiated an exercise to clear the stuckness. At the end, she gave me a message from Spirit. There were other delightful touches, too, and I left feeling blessed and that I had received a deep healing. It was wonderful and I recommend her work without qualification. I stand in awe of your openness and integrity and feel blessed to work with you. Written Sept, 2011
Energy-ssage (Relaxation Massage) Testimonial: by Linda Rozee, New Minas NS Receiving a massage from Carol is like being lovingly held in the arms of the Cosmic Mother. This was the most nurturing massage I have ever received. Every stroke was infused with tenderness, compassion, love and acceptance. Never rushing, she gives you 100% undivided attention, doctoring your spirit with the recognition you have waited a lifetime for. Aromatic essential oils, beautiful light filled crystals, soothing music, and Carol’s attunement to the spirit realm, make for a very unique and multi-faceted experience. My sore arms felt much better afterwards, not to mention my spirit. How does it get any better than this? L Rozee, Massage therapist(RMT) written April, 2012
