Holistic Therapies

The origins of holistic therapies

Holistic Therapies have been around for thousands of years. The Chinese have known about the energy flowing through the meridians for over 4,000 years and developed acu-puncture to tap into and unblock the energy flows. Chinese Medicine uses acu-puncture and herbal remedies while from the Indian sub-continent we have Ayurveda - ''the Science of Life'' - a system that has been around for 5,000 years.

The gentle touch of Reiki Therapy                         

Reiki is a sequence of hand positions, starting from the head and working down the body. The client remains fully clothed and can either sit on a chair or lay down on a treatment bed whilst the Reiki practitioner channels the energy through to the client. People feel Reiki in different ways. Most often during a treatment the energy is experienced as warmth, others may feel a mild tingling, whilst others may feel a pleasant pulsing sensation, but all describe mental or emotional calmness or peacefulness. Reiki can be experienced without any physical contact between the therapist and yourself if preferred.
