What is Reiki?

What is Reiki?

Reiki (pronounced Ray-key) is a Japanese word meaning Universal Life Energy, an energy that is all around us.
Reiki is the name given to a system of natural healing which evolved in Japan from the experience and dedication of Dr Mikao Usui (d. 1926). Fired by a burning question, Dr Usui was inspired to develop this healing system from ancient teachings after many years of study, research and meditation. He spent the rest of his life practising and teaching Reiki. Today Reiki continues to be taught by Reiki Masters who have trained in the tradition passed down from Master to student.
There is no belief system attached to Reiki so anyone can receive or learn to give a Reiki treatment, the only prerequisite is the desire to be healed.
A Reiki Treatment
The method of receiving a Reiki treatment from a practitioner is a very simple process. The recipient simply lies on a couch and relaxes. If they are unable to lie down the treatment can be given in a sitting position, the main thing is for the recipient to be as comfortable as possible. There is no need to remove any clothing, as Reiki will pass through anything, even plaster casts. I gently places my hands non-intrusively in a sequence of positions, which cover the whole body. The whole person is treated rather than specific symptoms. A full treatment usually takes 30 to 1 hours with each position held for several minutes.

Which conditions can Reiki help?

It is possible to heal at any level of being: physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. Acute injuries can be helped to heal very quickly but more chronic illness takes longer. In some cases such as terminal illness, there is not enough time for the progress of the disease to be reversed. However, in such cases there is usually great benefit and enhancement of the quality of life giving a sense of peace and acceptance during the time remaining.
Reiki healing can be given anywhere at any time as no special equipment is needed. The practitioner is a channel for the energy to be drawn through by the need or imbalance in the recipient. Neither person has to use any effort of will or concentration during this process.
As running water smooths the jagged edges of a rock until it is small enough to roll away, Reiki flows to the areas of need, soothing pain and supporting the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Reiki restores balance in one’s life.
Reiki supports all forms of treatment both orthodox and complementary.
You can book a Reiki treatment at The Haven Wellbeing Hub on 0118 327 2450 or you could join us on 17th & 24th October to learn how to give Reiki to yourself and your friends & family. Jo Cieloch from Featherock Therapies will be holding a 2 day Reiki Level 1 at The Haven Wellbeing Hub on Saturday 17th Oct and Saturday 24th Oct from 11am – 5pm. Please contact The Haven for more information or Jo directly.

What is EMMETT Technique?

emmett technique

Emmett technique

What is Emmett?

The EMMETT Technique is a unique form of body therapy.
It involves the application of light finger pressure at specific points, referred to as “Emmett points”.
The points are not the same as traditional trigger points or acupressure points or any other points described in any other therapy.
The Tamil pressure required to stimulate the EMMETT points does not need to be firm or painful. “No pain no gain” has no place in EMMETT Technique philosophy.
The EMMETT Therapist is skilled in the art of applying:

  • The right amount of pressure
  • In the right direction
  • For the right amount of time

It is this combination of elements, unique to each individual, which creates the desired physical change.
Although often combined with other techniques, the EMMETT Technique is an efficient and effective therapy on its own.
What does an EMMETT treatment involve?
Clients can be treated seated, standing or lying down. It can be a stand alone treatment or combined with other techniques. The treatment can be applied directly to the skin or done through clothing. The practitioner will apply light finger pressure at specific points on the body in a sequence.
How does it work?
It is suggested that the EMMETT Technique may interact with the body as described in the science of Critical Point Analysis which identifies that…
“In any highly complex system there is a specific, critical point at which the smallest input will result in the greatest change”
For example a light touch on a small cog can halt the largest engine.
The EMMETT Technique Therapist can be compared to a body electrician who has the knowledge to locate these critical points and re-set them with the correct stimulation.
The stimulation is registered by the receiver’s nervous system and their brain responds by sending new instructions back to affect the physical state of the localized area. It affects muscle memory.
The result is often instantaneous physical change.
Special language skills are incorporated to reinforce and anchor the positive physical changes greatly enhancing the outcome.
How can it help me?
This therapy can help with many medical conditions. For example (and this list is not complete!)
Neck, back, shoulder, hip and knee pain
Foot pain and ankle restrictions
Lymphatic and sinus congestion – hayfever
Bladder, abdominal cramps
Fluid retention
Jaw/facial tension
And so much more
