What is Reiki ?

Feel the delicate warmth of soothing energy with reiki. Reiki is a traditional Buddhist healing treatment that harnesses the innate energy of humanity to calm and heal others in a completely natural way. But what does that actually mean? Well, as humans, we all have electromagnetic energy running through. Usually, our brain uses this energy to transmit messages and commands to the rest of our body. Using a similar principal to that of modern acupuncture, Buddhists found that by laying their hands on specific points on the body, they could calm others, and sometimes even heal their pain. Reiki is generally used on patients with:

  • Chronic pain
  • Stress & Anxiety
  • Low mood and anxiety

How does it work?

Although reiki may sound more spiritual than medical, many studies exist which demonstrate that Reiki can be effective in chronic pain management and stress, (Engebretson, Wardell, 1994, Shore, 2004, Olsen, 2001,) and some suggest that it balances the amount of Gamma waves in the brain, allowing patients to become less stressed and more aware during treatment (NCCAM)

In hospitals that have adopted Reiki as a regular compliment to the medical attention that the patients receive, results have suggested that Reiki helps to relieve both pain and stress. Clinical data from Wentworth-Douglass hospital, for example, shows that in 2007, of 900 patients that tested positive for stress or pain before reiki,. many had reduced pain and almost three quarters had decreased stress levels afterwards.

Above all reiki should be used as a de-stress mechanism in conjunction with other pain management techniques, as this is when it is most effective. To find out more about the benefits of reiki or book your first session, give us a call, and let us help you today!

Social Anxiety / Professional Confidence - Public Speaking / Fear of Flying

"I'm now able to perform tasks that I thought were impossible a month ago"

I've suffered from constant anxiety for as long as I can remember, particularly from social anxiety and fear of public speaking, to the point that my office jobs were no longer manageable and I was very close to fall deeply into depression. I had very little self-confidence, despite having progressed in my career and achieved many of my professional and personal goals. However, I got to a point in which I wasn't able to progress any further due to my the constant fear of being evaluated and criticised by others, which paralysed me and stopped me from speaking up and being more visible. My day to day prior to the sessions was absolutely controlled by my anxiety and lack of confidence due to past experiences, mainly during my childhood. Having done a number of therapies before (eMDR, CBT) I was sceptical at first, but I wanted to give hypnotherapy and the BAGC6 a go. After around 13 sessions I can say that I'm in a much better place than when I started. My constant anxiety has hugely decreased, and I'm now able to perform tasks that I thought were impossible a month ago, like giving a speech in front of my colleagues without having a panic attack or simply socialising with new people at a party. My perspective on things is now different and I've gained new confidence which allows me to speak and interact with others without fear. Maria has been great in understanding my issues and creating a very tailored treatment (hypnosis, eMDR, etc) to tackle these. She's always been very determined and a firm believer in a full recovery which has been very helpful, particularly in moments when I wanted to give up. She's also giving me tools and techniques that I can use to manage emotions and to stay focused (like auto-hypnosis) and I'm using these almost on a daily basis to continue building on my confidence and resilience. As per the fear of flying, this is something that I still need to test, but I'm confident that I will have also overcome it in the same way that I've beaten my anxiety disorder. I can only be grateful to Maria for all her help and for believing in me since day 1, and totally recommend her treatment!

Thanks so much!
