Reiki is a hands-on healing technique that reinforces the body’s natural ability to heal itself on all levels - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.It has a tendency to induce deep relaxation and a sense of calm, increase energy levels, and relieve stress, depression and negative thinking.It is particularly useful in the treatment of acute pain or injuries, where it enhances the natural healing process so it can happen more easily and quickly.
Many people are practicing techniques to improve their health such as meditation, exercise and improved diet. As this is done, a deeper awareness often develops concerning the flow of subtle energies in and around the body and the connection between these subtle energies and one's health. This developing awareness validates the ancient idea of 'life force energy' as the cause of health and its lack as the cause of illness.
The basis of craniosacral work is in the understanding that every living being possesses an inherent source of knowledge and established effective mechanisms that are designed to guide the body in its natural process of development and growth. This process it will ultimately always strive to achieve and maintain optimal health, looking to harmonise our relationship with our immediate and wider environment.
The natural mechanisms we are embracing are continually at work, every waking and resting moment. However, the potential and rate at which the mechanisms are at work will depend on our levels of physical and mental activity and emotional stresses we are exposed to. It is easy to understand that a balance is always necessary - in every process that takes place in nature and likewise in the maintenance of our health.
