Accu~Pressure Point Reiki TM
Acupuncture and Acupressure use the same points but Acupuncture employs needles while Acupressure uses the gentle but firm pressure of hands/fingers. This ancient healing art uses the fingers, instead of Acupuncture needles, to press key points on the surface of the skin to stimulate the body’s natural self-curative abilities. When these points are pressed they release muscular tension, promote the circulation of blood and the body’s life force to aid healing. Acupressure can be effective in helping relieve headaches, eyestrain, sinus problems, neck pain, back aches, arthritis, muscle aches, and tension due to stress. It may also relieve ulcer pain, menstrual cramps, constipation, indigestion, anxiety and for sleep disorders. Acupressure relaxes the body thus strengthens resistance to dis-ease and promotes wellness.
The body’s energy centers, or Acu-Points, lie on energy pathways called Meridians. When Acu-points or Meridians are blocked or congested, we experience pain or discomfort on a physical level. On an emotional level, we may become frustrated or irritable, and on a spiritual (energetic) level, we may feel ungrounded, vulnerable, and have difficulty knowing our real purpose in life. By using deep but gentle finger pressure on specific Acu-Points the blocked energy starts to release allowing your body/mind to relax, easing physical discomfort which may create an opportunity to release negative thought patterns, physical body memories, and mental stress.
This unique system of Usui Traditional Reiki combined with the Acu-Pressure Points to create Acu-Pressure Point Reiki TM provides a greater well-being for the client. This result has proven most successful for those needing a more physical energetic response on their body to have a successful release. The Acu-Points are usually done in symbolic combination. This means the points, which have been used in structured combinations for centuries, will be used based on the needs of the client. Most people comment on the heaviness of their bodies during the session and a lifting of an apparent weight from their bodies upon rising from the healing table. They feel elated, happy, more sure of oneself and calm as if being on a holiday and losing weight as well! I often have the clients look into a mirror directly after rising to see the “younger and lighter” new look they carry.
