Reiki is a method of stress reduction and relaxation that promotes healing. This vital body medicine allows the innate wisdom of your consciousness to restore health on all levels of your being.
Unprocessed emotions and negative thoughts create blockages in energy flow through meridians and nadis. Regular expression of these trapped emotions and thoughts keeps the energy flowing however, if we don’t take action to clear these blockages on a regular basis, we begin to feel it in our muscles and joints and even in our organs manifesting as dis-ease.
Therapies given at a spiritual level, such as reiki, affect all layers of being, including the physical, and can be of great benefit in helping create an environment for optimal healing and regeneration.
Reiki is suitable for everyone, and can help with:
- chronic stress & fatigue
- pain management
- defusing emotional overload
- assisting recovery from surgery
- overwhelm and anxiety
- stroke recovery
What happens in the session?
Your experience begins by arriving and settling onto the massage table, fully clothed. Your head is supported with a pillow and your legs over a bolster to ensure you are as comfortable as possible. You may like a blanket over your body and an eye pillow over your eyes.
Once settled, you will be invited to breathe deeply, relaxing with each breath as you take your awareness into your heart. A guided visualisation connects you to your higher self for the duration of the session.
Essential oils may be used if you are agreeable to this. Oils are not put directly onto your skin but rather wafted through your energy field.
Sarah will move around the table working hands on or off as needed, working in your energy field as guided by spirit in alignment to what your soul is needing.
Sound is often used in a session and may consist of gentle drumming, singing bowls, tuning forks, rain sticks, and flute. Sarah works intuitively for your vibrational balancing.
