What is Reiki?
Reiki is a beautifully gentle yet effective complementary therapy which when used alone or as part of a treatment plan sees a significant improvement in holistic healing and recovery. Reiki balances the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of the self by restoring a healthy flow of life force energy. It works on an energetic level and is truly transformational with an endless list of benefits. It’s an exciting time as with new scientific findings on the effects of Reiki and a collective shift calling for a deeper level of healing and connection, Reiki brings exactly that ~ a profound and valuable natural energy based medicine. Reiki brings lasting positive change. Want to train in Usui Reiki? Learn with me.
What is EFT?
Emotional Freedom Technique or tapping is another energy based healing modality and is known as a sort of psychological acupressure. I call it Emotional Alchemy! It combines cognitive restructuring with tapping on the meridians and acupressure points to aid the release of energy blockages and trapped emotions. It is found the regulate the central nervous system, lower cortisol (the stress hormone) and calms the amygdala; the part of your brain responsible for making us feel triggered. It brings you back home to yourself, is an effective tool for grounding and brings instant calm. EFT also clears subconscious blockages by reprogramming information in the brain - this enables us to go so much further than we've ever dreamed of by overcoming obstacles & resistance. EFT is suitable for all types of issues from physical pain, unbalanced emotions and grief to phobias, trauma release and severing unhealthy attachments - each aspect of a problem is worked through and by tapping it out we can achieve instant results.
What are the Runes?
The runes are an ancient oracular alphabet hailing from Germanic tribes of Northern Europe and are used for purposes of divination. The runes offer guidance and healing. They elevate perspective, lend symbolic sight and have the potential to transform lives. They have a habit of getting to the root cause of an issue & offer an accurate picture of what the future holds. I have cast the runes for over 20 years & at times (during healing sessions especially), the runes trickle through as an oracular language to offer guidance. It is work which has naturally led me Seidr, Shamanism of the Northern tradition. Runes can also incorporated into healings and incantations (chanting, or galdr)My castings offer a one year outlook in two areas of your life. When I cast the runes, I will connect with your energy, consult them on your behalf, enter into trance and write up your findings with the help of my spirit tribe. (Castings are carried out remotely).I also offer personalised bindrune artwork - working collaboratively, combining aspects of the self, your journey or a specific event you'd like to honour, I will create a bindrune for you - this is a personal talisman unique to you. They tend to be medicinal in their essence, aiding self actualisation and leading to healing and empowerment.
What is Sound Therapy?
When we are content our energy vibrates in its normal peaceful state. When disruption occurs through trauma, injury or emotional upheaval we enter a state of dis-ease. Using resonance & rhythm we can realign & re-balance our energy & reprocess information stored in the subconscious mind, thus 'let it go'. Sound therapy is not limited to the frequencies our ears perceive, we literally 'feel' it; using 432hz crystal bowls (the miracle tone of nature & the true heartbeat of the earth), vocal toning and drumming, sound vibrations penetrate our bodies - this not only restores our energetic flow, but heals us on a cellular & molecular level.
Notes on Healing
If you are reading this, it means you have made the decision to seek support - it also means you are self aware and that it the first step of healing!
Although some wish to experience energy healing for its incredible relaxing and rebalancing qualities or find a means by which to develop their spiritual awareness, Reiki, EFT & sound or past life healing are potent modalities to really journey within and heal on a deep level.
Healing is by no means linear; sometimes it feels as if you have taken two steps forward then one back. Then 50 steps forwards, and 20 back. From my experience of treating others and from my own life path I can say healing is like a spiral. There are big swoops, ups and downs, and then you realise after some time you become better equipped to deal with the ebb and flow. We can say that chaos is part of the destruction process necessary in order to reach a place of surrender and stillness. It clears the way for new, exciting things. But life does throw surprises at us - just when we have recovered from one issue, another can pop up. Healing can be perpetual and with the right ongoing support we can overcome our obstacles and reach a place of resolution and peace.
As individuals we all heal at our own pace. The most important thing is to be committed to your wellbeing. With your commitment, I will hold space for you to heal - I like to also equip those I'm working with with tools for their self care toolkit so they can carry themselves forward and onwards.
Although I do offer one-off Reiki treatments I love to offer blocks of 5 sessions because even though after one session there will be a shift, the more sessions you have, the deeper inwards you will go and the more profound the change will be.
Energy healing is a detoxification process; it is extremely important to stay well hydrated after Reiki, EFT & sound healing. Water will support you in detoxifying not just your physical body, but your emotional state too.
On occasion, (certainly not always), people can experience a 'healing crisis'. This is when there has been a shift and we suddenly feel that our emotions are heightened. Think of a wound in its healing stages; it will weep, scab over, and when that scab itself diminishes and heals it can feel slightly uncomfortable. If you experience a healing crisis please remember you are not creating the pain, it is a sign that the pain is leaving you. I offer my clients some soothing distance Reiki on the odd occasion a healing crisis occurs.
Please also note that it is advisable to refrain from the intake of alcohol for at least 24 (if not 48!) hours prior to a treatment.
