Reiki: Treatments offered at home or from Gemini Hair in Milverton

This week I went along to meet the fab ladies at Gemini Hair in Milverton and am very excited to be able to offer Reiki healing treatments from a beautiful little room in the salon.

What’s Reiki I hear you ask? In some ways, it is a short cut to achieving yoga – the state at which we exist in peace, bliss and happiness. The state we aim to reach by removing all blockages in our system by following Patanjali’s ashtanga yoga sutras. It will help to return you to your natural, healed state whether your problems are physical, emotional or both.

What is Reiki?

The practice of Reiki is a unique method of healing, based on similar principles to those of acupuncture, reflexology, shamanic and other light energy healing. It was developed by Mikao Usui in Japan early in the 20th century.

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement. It is a gentle yet powerful complementary therapy that may be used alongside orthodox health care. As such, it expands treatment options.

The Japanese word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s wisdom or higher power” and ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually spiritually guided life force energy. Eastern medicine has always recognised and worked with this energy, which flows through all living things and is vital to well-being. Known as ‘ki’ in Japan, ‘chi’ in China and ‘prana’ in India. Acupuncture, T’ai chi and Yoga are also based on the free-flow of this energy in a person.

The life force is responsive to thoughts and feelings.  It becomes disrupted when we accept, either consciously or unconsciously, negative thoughts or feelings about ourselves. These negative thoughts and feelings attach themselves to the energy field and cause a disruption in the flow of life force. This diminishes the vital function of the organs and cells of the physical body. Reiki heals by flowing through the affected parts of the energy field and charging them with positive energy. It raises the vibratory level of the energy field in and around the physical body where the negative thoughts and feelings are attached. This causes the negative energy to break apart and fall away. In so doing, Reiki clears, straightens and heals the energy pathways, thus allowing the life force to flow in a healthy and natural way.

So if you are looking for Reiki in Somerset, you are in the right place.
