Meet the Team

Ros Russnak BA (hons), ITEC, DSEH


Ros has a deep sense of empathy with the people she meets. For many years she has trained in different aspects of massage from the traditional Swedish massage, Lymph Drainage and Indian Head massage to Tantra massage and Aromatherapy. When she connects intuitively with her clients, her hands instinctively find the right places and take them on a journey to total bliss and healing at the most fundamental and deepest levels.

She has also been a shamanic practitioner for many years, initially journeying for her own personal growth and then training with some outstanding shamans in the UK to develop the ability to journey to the expanded world of consciousness and affect deep healing and retrieve the lost soul parts and power objects on behalf of others. Her ability to connect and communicate with the spirit world has enriched the lives of many of her clients is bringing peace to many troubled souls.

She is a shining reflection of the light within her soul, and after training for 3 years at the School of Energy Healing, she has emerged as an accomplished healer, experienced in many different modalities and aspects of supporting her clients on their road to finding freedom from illness and letting go of the things that bind them.
Her commitment to healing from within has been put to the test when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. The healing of the cancer has led her to explore in depth the avenues that make us ill and the emotions that keep us there. Her insights and experiences with healing the cancer entirely with alternative therapies have given her the passion to guide and support others along their road of healing and self-discovery and she is a glowing example of radiant positive energy.


Alison Thompson

On becoming aware that she had a natural ability to work with energy Alison realised that the energy in her hands could be used to help people in pain.

Alison started with Reiki and then joined the School of Energy healing on the Professional training. She is now in teacher training with the school. She has also studied Spirit Release with the Hickman Academy and likes working with Crystals.

Amadis Cammell





El-Saltador (the jumper) is an old traditional farmhouse originally part of an old train-line which used to supply the mines deep in the mountains of the Sierra Almahilla. It was decommissioned in 1943 and between 2001 and 2003 has been sympathetically restored by its present owner.
It stands in its own grounds of 55 hectares, only a few miles from the village of Lucainena de las Torres. The views are 360 Degrees of unspoilt countryside, mountains, valleys and vegetation.

Only 35 minutes drive from Almeria airport and a few kilometres from unspoilt beaches, close to the only desert in Europe and the caves of the natural park of the Cabo de Gata.

The Rooms

The double guestrooms lead off a spacious and light open courtyard with water trough and central mandala. The main house contains kitchen, library, dining room, lounge with fireplace, seminar room and several outdoor eating spaces. As well as a dedicated training room, which is 200 yards from the main building. This recently completed project has a wonderful healing energy, as it is built on a very strong earth energy line, and the windows filter in coloured light.
On the other side of the valley a solar installation collects the powerful rays of the sun, and feeds an under floor heating system to ensure that even the coldest nights will be comfortable.

The bedrooms are for 2 people sharing with single beds, and most of the bathrooms are decorated in authentic traditional Moroccan style and materials.


We also have one room which can be used as dormitory for 4-6 people sharing.

The house has its own original charm and healing power, starting with the use of celanite chippings for the drive, which makes the whole walkways twinkle like mirrors in the sun, surrounding the whole house with the magic of the feminine energies of this chrystal; or the use of untreated timbers revealing their natural beauty in every part of the house. It also has its own well, supplying fresh clear water directly from the store cupboard of mother earth.
