Reiki Healing

Reiki (pronmounced "ray-key") is a Japanese word. 'Rei' means 'Universal wisdom' and 'Ki' means 'Life Energy. Reiki is the name given to a system of natural healing re-developed over 100 years ago from ancient Buddhist teachings by Dr Mikao Usui.

Karuna is a Sanskrit word used in Hinduism, Buddhism and Zen. It is translated to mean 'Compassionate Action'. William L Rand developed the Karuna system of Reiki between 1993 and 1995. The Karuna Reiki energy works on all the energy bodies at the same time and is different to and believed to be more powerful than, Usui Reiki.

Both systems of Karuna and Usui Reiki continue to be taught by Reiki Masters passing traditions from Master to Student. There is no belief system attached to Reiki so anyone can receive a Reiki treatment, the only pre-requisite is the desire to be healed.

mikao usui The method of receiving a Reiki treatment is a very simple process. The client simply lies on our therapy couch and relaxes. There is no need to remove any clothing, as Reiki Healing energy will pass through anything. The therapist gently places their hands non-intrusively on the client in a sequence of positions. The whole person is treated rather than specific symptoms. A treatment usually takes around an hour with each hand position being held for several minutes, whilst relaxing music is played in the background.

Reiki is a stress reduction and relaxation technique. The body has the ability to heal itself and to do so complete relaxation is beneficial. Long-term imbalances in the body sometimes require several treatments to allow the body to reach the level of relaxation necessary to bring the body back into balance. Reiki energy can be experienced in different ways, sometimes as warmth, or a gentle coolness or slight tingling. Sometimes no sensation is felt at all, other than a feeling of calm, restfulness, peace and general well-being.

It is possible to heal at any level of being: physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. It can even be used on animals and plants. Reiki can be given anywhere, at anytime. It is an intelligent healing energy where the practitioner is a channel through which the energy is drawn by the need or imbalance in the recipient.


Chakra Balancing

Pure white sunlight is energy and contains everything necessary to maintain life on earth. The electromagnetic radiations contained within it flood down onto the earth and penetrate everything on our planet. The human body is designed so that it is self-building and self-healing. However this only occurs when there is an energy balance between body, mind and spirit and the bio-energy system of the human body is governed by seven major chakras.
The body's chakra system is vital to the health and well-being of the individual. The chakras exist on the etheric level and interpenetrate one another. Each chakra also corresponds to a particular colour and sound vibration and is also associated with a particular ductless gland or organ in the body. Furthermore, as the etheric body provides a blueprint for the physical body and its organs, a disruption of harmony within the etheric body will almost always precede physical illness.

The chakras are cone shaped with the smallest point being closest to the physical body. They are three-dimensional and five of the chakras penetrate the front and back of the body, whereas the base and crown chakras do not. The base chakra points downwards towards mother earth and the crown chakra upwards towards the universe. Each energy centre is sensitive to the vibration of a particular coloured ray. A healthy body draws in white light, which flows without obstruction, into and out of the body's chakra system.

Our thoughts, feelings and the outside environment all have an effect on our chakra system and the flow of energy within it. Positive thoughts, feeling and actions keep a healthy flow of energy throughout our chakra system. When we are subjected to things like stress, negative thoughts, feelings and actions then this can cause us to absorb negative energy and after a period of time cause blockages in our chakras. To maintain a state of health within a person the chakras need to absorb and distribute energy evenly through the etheric body. When toxins begin to collect in these chakras due to blockages in this energy flow, then the physical body becomes unhealthy, resulting in physical, mental or emotional problems
