The Benefits of Reflexology

Perhaps understanding the many benefits of reflexology will encourage sceptics to try this wonderfully relaxing treatment. I have been successfully treating clients with Reflexology treatments for 10 years now and still enjoy the opportunity of helping others find balance in their life both on a physical and emotional level.

Foot reflexology is a safe and effective way of helping the body to heal itself. The idea is to treat the body as an entire connected organism as opposed to simply focusing on specific symptoms.

There are 7,000 nerve endings in each foot which explains why we enjoy a good foot massage and feel so much better when our feet are in good condition and so unhappy when they are in an uncomfortable state. Just think ladies how miserable we can be at the end of a night out after squashing our feet into those attractive pointed high heels!

By stimulating specific reflex points on the feet which are believed to be connected to various organs and glands using the thumb or forefinger this improves circulation and lymph flow, cleansing the body of impurities and revitalizing energy, therefore encouraging the body to naturally restore its own healthy balance. Riding the body of waste and toxins is extremely important to your health. When the lymphatic, urinary or intestinal systems become blocked due to a build up of toxins and waste the energy in the body stagnates. This may cause you to feel bloated, lethargic or even sick. During treatment this boost in blood circulation increases the delivery of oxygen and nutrients rejuvenating tired cells and tissues giving you a new lease of life.

These days many of our problems can be linked to stress due to our busy lifestyles, which in large amounts can lead to various symptoms such as headaches, insomnia, digestive disorders, muscular pain and hormonal imbalances. As reflexology can be pleasurable and very relaxing to receive, it has a soothing effect on the body both physically and emotionally promoting overall better health.

Although there is evidence to support Reflexology compliments cancer treatment, pregnancy, IVF, depression, it is not advised that it is seen as a medical substitute but simply as an alternative therapy which offers many benefits for long term health and deep relaxation.

The Cleansing Process

Reiki Cleansing Process by Reiki Holistic Therapy

 

This Reiki journey of self healing and spiritual discovery will in no doubt for some people bring many mixed emotions to the surface due to the changes taking place within the auric field. The cleansing process refers to these sensations, emotions, feelings and physical changes a person can encounter for up to 21 days following either a Reiki attunement or a Reiki treatment.

During this time it is important to be kind to yourself and non judgemental. We human beings have a habit of being our own worst enemy’s and our biggest critics and therefore this is a time where we should embrace our faults, take responsibilities for our actions and allow feelings that have been suppressed to bubble to the surface. Spend time loving yourself and accepting who you truly are. Rid yourself of rage, anger, bitterness or any little insecurities you have and allow yourself to heal from the inside out.

I appreciate the following advise may be difficult especially for those living the big city highlife, or juggling motherhood with work, but we all need to stop at some point slow down, take note of our surroundings and be grateful for what we have no matter how little. I suggest finding at least 20 minutes each day during the 21 day cleansing process to simply sit by yourself in quiet surroundings, light some candles relax and naturally allow these thoughts, feelings, sensations, emotions to come to the surface. Guided mediations which can easily be downloaded or simply having a good cry to your favourite CD should all help release any negativity which may have been lodged in a chakra for some time.

Physically the body may also be going through positive changes resulting in detoxification symptoms such as headaches, feelings of nausea, changes in appetite, tiredness or even a boost of energy. For these reasons it is best to try and adhere to a healthier lifestyle. Drink plenty of water, eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, cut down on alcohol and caffeine or better still remove it completely from your diet for the next 21 days.

These of course are purely suggestions to help you make the most of your Reiki experience and live a happy and healthy life. Good luck!

Reiki Attunements. What’s involved!

Reiki Attunements in West London by Reiki Holistic Therapy

 

Reiki Attunements. What’s Involved!

The word attunement refers to the process in which the Reiki Master  makes subtle adjustments to the students s energy channels which are opened up  in order to accommodate the ability to channel Reiki linking that person to the source of Reiki. The simplest  explanation is that it is much like tuning a radio to the desired station with no interference.

Usually an attunement begins with the student sitting comfortably in a chair with their hands in the prayer position. There is no need for the student to do or say anything other than to simply relax and enjoy the sensation as the Reiki Master works with the energy to create balance and make adjustments.

As human beings we are all different and therefore the experience of this process is unique for each individual. As I remember each one of my attunements were very different. With Reiki 1 other than a sensation of peace and calm I didn’t get much, however with Reiki 2 my experience was completely different and one which I will never forget. Perhaps this powerful sensation was due to the fact that at the time I was going through some personal changes and in the process of about to start a new life. From the moment I walked into my Reiki Masters Lorna’s  house back in  2009 I knew it was going to be a very emotional day. The energy was  so strong it was almost overwhelming, leaving me feeling slightly spacey and very relaxed. Lorna gave us the option to have our attunements together or separately. We all opted for privacy which is just as well as I was beside my self with tears of emotion.

2 years later I was back at Lornas house and experienced a very different attumnement. This time I felt much more in control, happy and excited about my Reiki journey. I had my attunement with another girl outside in Lorna’s garden. It was a beautiful experience which left me giggling afterwards for some time like a crazed schoolgirl. I didn’t feel remotely embarrassed especially since the girl I was with was having her own powerful emotional experience which appeared to be very different from mine.

As the attunement process is a clearing out process it can bring feelings to the surface that you never knew you had, or had previously suppressed. Which is why it is recommended before beginning on any on Reiki Level that you do a cleaning detox for at least two weeks before.

I hope to see you soon for this life changing journey of Reiki light and love.
