I am a certified Reiki Master and Alexander Technique Instructor combining the neuromuscular re-education teachings of the Alexander Technique and the relaxation benefits of Reiki.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by 'laying on hands' and is based on the idea that a life force energy flows through us all. Our physical body is alive because of this life force energy. If our life force is low or blocked, we are more likely to get sick, but if it is high and free flowing, health and a feeling of well-being are more accessible to us.
Stress, often caused by conflicting thoughts and feelings such as fear, worry, doubt, anxiety, etc. tends to be lodged in one's subtle energy systems and can disrupt and weaken the flow of life force energy. Medical research has determined that continual stress can block the body's natural ability to repair, regenerate and protect itself. The American Institute of Stress estimates that 75%-95% of all visits to doctors are the results of reaction to stress. The effects of unreleased stress range from minor aches to major health concerns, such as heart disease, digestive disorders, respiratory and skin problems.
Reiki (ray-key) is a technique that aids the body in releasing stress and tension by creating deep relaxation. Because of this, Reiki promotes healing and health. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "the Wisdom of God or the Higher Power" and Ki which is means 'life force energy.' So Reiki means 'spiritually guided life force energy.' The Reiki system of healing is a technique for transmitting this subtle energy to yourself and others through the hands into the human energy system. Reiki restores energy balance and vitality by relieving the physical and emotional effects of unreleased stress. It gently and effectively opens blocked meridians and chakras, and clears the energy bodies, leaving one feeling relaxed and at peace.
