Reiki with Crystals
Reiki is a wonderful way to relax by transfer healing light energy. Whilst I work on your specific areas of need and open and balance your Chakras, the Reiki energy will go to where it is needed most, enabling you to enjoy a continual flow of energy healing and wellness, long after the treatment has finished.
Hypnotherapy is a recognised form of relaxation therapy. It can reduce ‘stress chemicals’ and bring the body back to balance. Regular sessions ease built-up pressure and tension, helping you to learn how to look after yourself better.
The hypnotic trance is the induction of a deeply relaxed state. The mind is guided away from the troubles of everyday life and into a place of tranquillity and peace. During this process, the hypnotherapist may offer therapeutic suggestions to encourage changes in attitude and behaviour or relief from stress-related symptoms. This relaxation therapy is comfortable, safe and considered to be a highly liberating experience. It’s beneficial for both the mind and body.
Visualisation or guided meditation is a variation of traditional meditation that involves the use of visual sense, taste, touch, sound and smell to achieve the relaxation response. This relaxation technique requires you to imagine a scene in which you feel at peace.
Also known as the Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), tapping is similar to acupuncture, where lightly tapping certain points on the face and upper body can help relieve tension and stress. Unlike with acupuncture though, you use your fingertips instead of needles and is a great way to undo stress.
Why should I relax?
Healthy living is a matter of balance. Relaxation can play a key part of the balancing process, alongside what we eat, how much physical activity we do, and how we handle stress.
We face constant demands, not only from work but also from our families and social lives – and this affects our stress levels on a major scale. Stress affects us all in different ways, and many of us don’t even realise how stressed we actually are, we often become accustomed to being tense, so we think of it as normal.
Relaxation techniques are thought to be key to restoring or maintaining, a healthy body and mind. Some relaxation exercises are designed to help slow down your breathing and heart rate, which can help to lower blood pressure and muscle tension. Relaxation can also help you to gain control of your worries and can help you to learn other skills, such as mindfulness.
