What is Pranic Healing?
Pranic Healing is a highly evolved and tested non-touch complementary therapy that uses prana to balance the body’s processes. Prana is the Sanskrit word for life’s energy. In acupuncture, the Chinese call this energy Qi or Chi. In Japanese it is referred to as Ki, as in Reiki. It is the fastest growing energy healing therapy and is being used by physicians, nurses and other medical and non-medical professionals all over the world.
Pranic Healing works on the principle that the body is a self-repairing organism with the innate ability to heal itself. It is a non-invasive treatment, carried out with the patient fully clothed and complements any other form of medical treatment.
How can Pranic Healing Help?
Pranic Healing can be used for any physical and psychological condition. It also helps to:
- increase energy levels
- reduce stress and anxiety
- enhance the immune function
Our Pranic Healing therapist, Anne Chesher has been trained by and continues to be mentored by Les Flitcroft, Director of the Institute of Pranic Healing UK & Ireland. In 2019 Les was voted one of the top ten energy healers in the world.
What is 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 an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means, “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy M
What to expect during a reiki treatment
Treatment is given by the practitioner placing their hands gently on your body in a pre-determined sequence of hand positions, spending several minutes holding each position. These hand positions are non-intrusive and cover both the front and back of the body and are sometimes varied to give Reiki to areas where it is specifically needed. The touch will be gentle, light and comfortable; there is no massage or manipulation. You may feel sensations such as heat, tingling, coolness or throbbing under the practitioners’ hands or in other parts of your body, or you may feel very little. Many people experience a sense of well being and relaxation, or fall asleep; sometimes a treatment is energizing. There is no right or wrong way to experience Reiki. The treatment will normally last at least 1 hour.
