Energy Healing / Reiki

Energy healing is about restoring your energy flow to the optimum balance on all levels, enabling the physical body to heal itself by clearing blocks and barriers stored within the body’s energy system.

First by accepting that we are all made up of energy – as an energy being that is more than just a physical body – we are a part of everything around us. Energy flows through everything and creates everything. Our thoughts and emotions are energy. The energy systems of the body are connected energetically to our physical organs, glands and body systems.

Environmental and physical stress, emotional trauma, and negative thought patterns are just some factors that contribute to disrupting our energy flow. Much more than we realize, when the body is placed under stress (physical, biochemical, mental or emotional), our immunity drops across many different levels, affecting our well-being. Energy must flow in order to maintain optimal health, physically, emotionally and mentally.

Pain, inflammation and dis-ease are ways our body is telling us our energy is not flowing harmoniously… That something is not working in our lives. Our physical body is an amazing instrument for our emotional health.

Energy healing facilitates the healing process by clearing the blocks so that the body can move to its optimal level of balance.

Reiki is part of energy healing.

Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is a holistic healing treatment that uses natural plant extracts to maintain and promote physical, psychological and spiritual wellbeing.

‘Aromatherapy can be defined as the art and science of utilizing naturally extracted aromatic essences from plants to balance, harmonize and promote the health of body, mind and spirit. It is an art and science which seeks to explore the physiological and psychological and spiritual realm of the individual’s response to aromatic extracts as well as to observe and enhance the individual’s innate healing process. As a holistic practice, Aromatherapy is both a preventative approach as well as an active method to employ during acute and chronic stages of illness or ‘dis’-ease. It is a natural, non invasive modality designed to affect the whole person not just the symptom or disease and to assist the body’s natural ability to balance, regulate, heal and maintain itself by the correct use of essential oils.’ – Jade Shutes
