Reflexology & Reiki

Reflexology and Reiki are two alternative therapies that have gained popularity in recent years. Reflexology is based on the principle that a map of the body is mirrored on the hands and feet, and by creating pressure on particular points on the feet you can impact various organs and other parts of the body. It restores balance to the nervous system by activating the nerve endings of the feet, which are connected to the spinal nerves and their corresponding organs. Reiki, on the other hand, is a specific type of subtle energy in which healing is executed by the touch of the hands, coercing the flow of the energy from a limitless source (God Force) to the patient through the Reiki practitioner. It is a potent force, but the energy is gentle and can be channelled to oneself or others with an objective or goal. 

 

While there’s a lot of overlap between the two, Reiki is particularly good with mental and emotional issues and reflexology is wonderful at dealing with something which is closely related to the physical body.

What to expect during an reiki or reflexology treatment

During a reflexology treatment, you can expect to sit or recline in a comfortable chair or on a massage table. The practitioner will then apply pressure to specific points on your feet, hands, or ears, depending on the reflexology system used. The pressure may be firm, but it should not be painful. The practitioner may also use other techniques, such as massage or stretching, to help relax your muscles and improve circulation.

During a Reiki treatment, you can expect to lie down or sit comfortably while the practitioner places their hands on or near your body. You will remain fully clothed during the session. The practitioner will then channel energy through their hands to you, which may feel like warmth or tingling. You may also feel deeply relaxed or fall asleep during the session.
