Holistic Therapies

What Are Holistic Therapies?

Holistic therapy is a generic term for any treatment / therapy session that is intended to treat the individual as a whole on all levels - mind, body and spirit.

What Is Reiki?

Re-discovered in the 19th century by a Japanese monk named Dr Mikao Usui, Reiki is one of the most ancient holistic healing methods known to mankind.

The word Reiki consists of two syllables ‘Rei’ (pronounced ‘Ray’) meaning Universal; and ‘Ki’ (pronounced ‘key’) meaning Life Force Energy. Universal Life Force Energy flows through all living things. It is given to us at birth and is used up in the business of daily living. We then have to create a daily supply of new energy from various sources including air, sunshine, food and in its purest form Reiki.

How Does Reiki Work?

When our Universal Life Force Energy is high we feel strong, clear-minded, healthy and confident. When our Universal Life Force Energy is low we feel depleted; mentally cloudy and we are more disposed to physical poor health.
During a Reiki treatment your entire being is saturated with Universal Life Force Energy which flows in a powerful and concentrated form through the hands of the Reiki Therapist.

Physically, mentally and spiritually, Reiki heals holistically at every level, providing our bodies with supplemental Universal Life Force Energy and so stimulating the body’s own ability to heal itself and restore natural health.

What Conditions Does Reiki Help?

As well as helping many physical ailments, Reiki can also promote the change of negative mental habits, transforming them into more positive and constructive thought patterns.  Even if you are fit and healthy Reiki can help you stay that way.

The following list contains some of the conditions Reiki can help with:

• Acne

Gentle yet powerful, Reiki can be used by everyone, from young babies to senior adults.  As a natural healing system it can be used safely alongside other complementary therapies or conventional medicine and the benefits can be felt immediately.

What Happens During A Reiki Treatment?

A Reiki Therapy session usually takes between one to one and a half hours. Fully clothed, the recipient receives the treatment either lying on a treatment couch covered by a blanket or comfortably seated in a chair.

During the session the Reiki therapist’s hands are placed over or lightly touching the body in a series of non-invasive positions.  Each hand position is held for several minutes as guided by the therapist’s intuition.

What the recipient feels varies from individual to individual.  Usually heat or tingling sensations can be felt in the area being treated.  Reiki recipients generally report experiences of peace, relaxation and comforting feelings of warmth and well being.

Overall, Reiki induces a feeling of total calm and relaxation.  From this perspective, thoughts can become more positive and health can improve beyond measure.
