What is a Reiki Session?
Reiki is an alternative healing method that originated in Japan and is conducted by the "laying of hands." It is based upon the theory that we all have an unseen life force or spiritual energy within us, and when the flow of this energy is disrupted, it produces dis-ease or illness in a person. A reiki practitioner administers treatment by either gently laying their hands on the patient, or by hovering the hands over the patient, and then directing that person's own energy so that it can flow more freely, and heal any parts of the body - or mind- that are needing attention. Reiki treatments are gentle and safe, and patients often report feeling very peaceful and relaxed following a session. Reiki has been known to speed recovery from injury or surgery, reduce pain, improve mood, and increase overall health. For more information about reiki and it's benefits, please visit www.reiki.org.
Energy psychology is a form of treatment that emphasizes the mind-body connection, and focuses on wholeness and total well-being for the client. Several treatment methods may be used, usually involving a form of bio-feedback, relaxation techniques, and the administering of self-treatments stemming from ancient alternative healing therapies. Because energy psychology addresses the root causes of a patient's dis-ease through the body, it is possible to release deep, subconscious issues. Energy psychology is appropriate for all ages, and for most problems, and it is ideal in situations when previous treatments have failed and patients are feeling stuck. It is a gentle, interactive, and efficient way of treating multiple complaints. Research has shown the effectiveness of energy psychology approaches in treating trauma and stress compared to traditional psychotherapies.
