Osteopath & Nutritional Therapist
Reiki HealingAfter many years being considered merely as 'New Age' therapies, healing and bio-energetics are now being accepted as genuinely effective complementary treatments. They are even available under the NHS in some areas.
Margaret Papoutsis has been practising Usui Reiki since 1994. She has been a Reiki and Seichem Master for 10 years. Generally she integrates this gentle healing modality into her osteopathic treatment, but is happy to discuss more specific uses on request.
Recently Reiki has been incorporated into 2 new and exclusive therapies - Japanese Facial Therapy and Intensive Head, Neck and Shoulder Therapy.
What is Reiki?
Reiki is a gentle healing technique, which has become a popular and effective 'balancing' treatment. It is a traditional Japanese therapy influencing the same subtle energetic pathways which are also targeted in acupuncture, shiatsu, tai-chi and yoga.
What does it involve?
Reiki is predominantly a hands-on therapy which can be applied to almost any area of the body, and in almost any position. There is usually a sensation of gentle, soothing heat, or sometimes a cooler vibrational feeling.
How is it useful?
The technique can be used as a general relaxing/energising treatment, as a pathway for emotional release, or as a tool to help increase the healing rate of a specific area or problem.
Are there any side-effects?
Slight post-treatment fatigue or light-headedness. Treated areas may occasionally feel more tender for a short while as the healing process occurs.
Severe mental disorders.
Fully-clothed for Reiki only. Otherwise according to other associated therapy.
