When you have been going through a tough time you might just find yourelf saying things like “I feel a bit odd”,”just not quite right”,”I don’t know what’s  wrong with me”.  “My energy is really low”.

We often feel out of balance when we are going through major changes in our life, it might be a medical treament. a new job, fertility treatment, pregnancy looking after ageing parents.

Either way you want and need time out for yourself. You become exhausted in mind body and spirit. This is because 

I offer a treatment that is geared towards healing the spirit and holding a safe place so the spirit can be reinforced and have a say. Many of my clients have found that they gather their strength and are in a better place to understand where they are in their illness or quest, they gain clarity from having the opportunity to listen

It is now known that the  Chinese were among the earliest cultures to begin exploring the subtle energies of the body and to recognise  Chi as one of the most important aspects of human life. Over centuries this was developed and expanded and became the basis for what is now known as Acupuncture—a system of healing based on the balancing of the energetic forces within us.

Traditional Chinese Medicine gave us the meridian systems, which are the specific energy pathways coursing throughout the body, and they also discovered that by stimulating and applying acupressure or acupuncture to specific acupoints, which are key locations where the life force is active at the body surface, we stimulate and restore the flow of this life energy. This energy is carried along the meridians or energy pathways and throughout the body.

Today, we have a greater understanding of energy healing. We are exploring and learning that it is essential to our  physical, emotional and mental well-being to keep our bodies systems in balance. You can feel your energy forces become disrupted and out of balance by a number of different  factors, such as emotional stresses, trauma to the body in the case of accidents, bad nutrition, and environmental such as chemicals and toxins, genetically inherited traits and even the weather. You know yourself when you feel out of sorts, not quiet right, down, anxious maybe with a headache or migraine.

Because acupuncture diagnosis is based on energy systems, we diagnose conditions based on terms such as deficient, excess, heat, damp, cold, stagnation,  these terms all relate to the movement of energy in the body. Your Acupuncture treatment, in its simplest form, is designed to redress the balance by reducing excess and heat, removing damp, moving stagnation,tonifying and bring back into balance.

When the needles are in place some clients will feel their Chi energy, sometimes as a pulse or a sensation running along the meridians. Even if you don’t feel this, your acupuncture treatment is still effective and facilitating your healing.

Acupuncture and other energy systems

Reiki written in Shinjitai Japanese.

Over the years I have noticed a subtle change in what happens during a treatment. It has been my practice to say with my client throughout their treatment. As a Reiki Master I asked if I could use Reiki to further support them during their treatment. This was how I discovered that while the needles had activated and opened the energy systems it also resulted in the client being more receptive to receiving Reiki energy.

This combination of Acupuncture and Reiki creates a powerful environment for self healing and creates a new dimension to your acupuncture treatment. Clients reported feeling a deep level of relaxation and a meditative state  and open to to receiving great insights to their emotional and spiritual well being.  and they get whatever they need just at that moment..a bit like your own Eureka moment

By staying with you and offering Reiki you will feel safe and supported while you take in what you need. This opens up your bodies ability to self heal and it allows you to pass through and process physical and emotional energy blockages  in a safe environment.

So does Acupuncture help with my stress levels ?. Stress brings on feelings of anxiety, restlessness, insomnia and depression. It is difficult to bring yourself into a meditative and relaxed state when all you want to do is pace around, go over scenarios in your head and generally scream at someone. All this activity creates a fog in your head that you just don’t seem to be able to get through.

An acupuncture treatment designed to bring you to  a deep sense of relaxation, without effort on your part, clears your head by switching off the self talk and mindchatter, a bit like the interference on a TV screen that has no satellite,by using precise acupuncture points, you are tuned into your body,you then can get a clearer signal, this allows you to connect with what it is you really need to know.

By staying with you and offering Reiki you will feel safe and supported while you take in what you need. This opens up your bodies ability to self heal and it allows you to pass through and process physical and emotional energy blockages in a safe environment.
