Reiki

Reiki is a healing technique where ‘life force energy’ is channelled into your body to activate the natural healing processes of the body and restore physical and emotional well-being. Life-force energy is channelled through the therapist and into the client to clear any blockages that may exist in the flow of energy throughout the body. These blockages may be causing pain, disfunction or illness to exist within the body.

Pamela Miles, author of Reiki: A Comprehensive Guide and leading US exponent on the integration of Reiki into mainstream healthcare facilities, writes:

“… studies that have been done so far have showed promising results for using Reiki to reduce stress, anxiety and pain. The data include objective measures (decreased stress hormones, improved immune indicators, decreased heart rate and improved blood pressure) as well as subjective improvements in anxiety and pain.”

The therapist may follow a set pattern of hand placements over the body, or may be led by intuition to where the treatment is needed the most. Reiki can be performed as a stand-alone treatment, or can be incorporated into other massage treatments. As a stand-alone treatment it can be performed fully-clothed, without the use of oil, and may even be used without physically touching the client’s body (hands may hover over the body, sending energy via the clients energetic field).

In my practice I have used Reiki to assist those with headaches, stress and anxiety, chronic pain and other dysfunctions within the body that cannot be assisted by conventional massage. Clients report feeling a deep sense of peace and relaxation during and after the treatment.

It also combines extremely well with Acupressure treatments, as both modalities focus on improving the flow of life force energy (or Qi) throughout the body).

Acupressure

Like acupuncture but without the needles, acupressure targets points throughout the body to stimulate the body’s self-curative abilities. Traditional Chinese Medicine has been using these points for thousands of years to treat illness and pain. Qi, or ‘life-force energy’ flows through the body following various specific pathways called ‘meridians’. Blockages in this flow, or an imbalance of Yin and Yang energy, can cause illness or pain to manifest in the area of the blockage, or somewhere along the same meridian pathway. By treating these blockages, energy is able to flow freely through the body, enabling the body to heal itself.

Acupressure can treat a myriad of symptoms, such as:

  • lower back pain,
  • headaches,
  • emotional stress,
  • sinus dysfunction (allergies, congestion, snoring etc),
  • digestive disorders, and
  • can assist women prepare for labour, resulting in better birth outcomes.

Acupressure can be applied as a standalone treatment specifically designed for you, or points may be utilised during a normal remedial massage as an additional technique to assist muscle tension and other dysfunctions. As a standalone treatment, this can be carried out fully clothed.

Finger pressure is applied to the points for between 1-3 minutes, either alone or in conjunction with other related points. Pressure used is very light, and in many cases can be just as effective as trigger point therapy for relaxing tension in a muscle without the pain that is usually involved in this treatment.

Acupressure can be used throughout pregnancy to assist with the treatment of pregnancy related discomfort (headaches, back and hip pain, heartburn, leg cramps, oedema etc). However it is important to note that there are some acupressure points that must be avoided until near the very end of the pregnancy, and therefore acupressure should only be administered by a qualified therapist.

Looking for the answers to your health issues?

Based in the beachside suburb of Seacliff (adjacent Brighton) in South Australia, I am a Dynamic Kinesiology Practitioner, Diploma qualified Remedial Massage Therapist and NutureLife Pregnancy Massage Practitioner. Whether you are looking to uncover the underlying cause of your health issues, are struggling with aches and pains that are impacting on your life, or feeling the discomforts of pregnancy, I can help!

A treatment incorporating a combination of these modalities, I am equipped to bring your body back into a balanced state of being.
