Energywork

Energywork

Do you feel out of wack?
A general sense of fatigue?
Out of balance?

You’ve tried the physical act of massage but still feeling stressed and ungrounded, then energy work maybe for you. Whereas massage works on the gross physical form, reiki accesses the more subtle energies.

I was fairly cynical back in the day. I dismissed the greater energies at play. Yoga opened my mind and whilst practicing I would experience that I was more than the body. This has to be felt personally so I’m not going to tell stories of flashing lights and suchlike. Instead I invite you to try the practice of reiki.

Reiki works on our spiritual hygiene, it’s that piece of the jigsaw that when found can be life changing. It just fits! Suddenly a sense of wholeness is felt. I describe it to my clients as assisted meditation. Meditation delivered with the hands. A technique through which a universal energy is to be transfered through the palms of the practitioners hands. The goal is to create a sense of balance and to encourage emotional and physical healing.

The Treatment

This practice is done fully clothed, laying down , finding a comfortable position using blankets and props. I then tap into the energies at play by laying my hands over key organs, glands, and chakra points. The treatment can be deeply relaxing and soothing to the nervous system. Lowering our stress response and improving sleep.

What are Chakra points?

Chakra is an old Sanskrit word meaning wheel. This is because the life force or prana that moves inside of you is spinning and rotating. This spinning energy has 7 hubs in your body starting at the base of the spine and rising all the way up to the top of the head. In a healthy balanced person the 7 hubs provide the right balance of energy to every part of the mind body and spirit but if one of your chakras is out of wack ( spins to quickly or slowly) then our well being can suffer.

Summary

Reiki increases well being by bringing about a sense of harmony. Reiki can now be seen in hospitals and clinics worldwide. After years of working with just the physical my outlook has changed and energy treatments has become a big part of my work through reiki, yoga and breathwork.
