Have you forgotten it is Mother’s Day this Sunday? Or have you agreed not to bother since you can’t spend time with your mum due to the lockdown?
Please consider supporting local business in Cheshire and purchase a gift card for a relaxing Reiki Therapy treatment. The gift card is £25 and can be purchased directly from Goldstone Reiki. It includes a FREE 20-minute distance healing session via video call during lockdown, and a full 40-minute hands-on healing treatment from 13th April onwards. I am available at Cheshire Lasers Clinic in Middlewich or I can visit the recipient in their home, fully Covid safe and accredited by The Reiki Association.
Reiki healing therapy is recognised as a form of complementary therapy. Simply put, reiki is a method for healing the body using touch. As a Reiki Master trained in the Japanese tradition, I would place my hands lightly on your body and channel energy, utilizing breathing techniques and mystical symbols as tools. Your body has the capacity to heal itself, but you must keep an open mind and believe that this is possible. In much the same way that we use yoga as a gentle method of exercise, so we use reiki therapy as a gentle method of healing and easing mental illness.
What happens after the session?
Following your first reiki therapy session, you could feel any number of sensations. Your mind might feel lighter and less busy. Your body might feel better, with those niggling aches and pains feeling less severe than they were before. We all respond differently to energy therapy, and it depends very much on the individual. I received my first treatment following years of meditation practice, so I wasn’t surprised to feel differently without any obvious changes.
Reiki is a subtle method of energy healing, and you will feel it in ways that you cannot explain. It should leave you feeling happier and more relaxed, but in some situations, it might provoke you to cry, feel angry or feel another less pleasant emotion. Sometimes we need a good cry to purge the negative energy from our bodies, and if you have been holding on to grief, hurt, confusion or a feeling of abandonment, then I would not be surprised if you did cry after your session. Always remember that the room in which you are treated is a sacred space. Everything you say and do is confidential, much like when you visit your doctor. Your reiki therapist will hold space for you to release what you need to.
