What is Reiki?

You’ve probably heard the word and have a loose idea of what it is but what is Reiki? Reiki is a traditional Eastern healing modality, and much like acupuncture and cupping, it impacts the energetic systems of the body to promote healing. Reiki treats the whole person, body, mind and spirit, to achieve balance and restore optimum health.

So, what is Reiki? In Japanese, it translates to “spiritual healing” or “spiritually guided life force energy”. More simply put, Reiki is universal life energy, harnessed and guided by a trained practitioner that has been attuned to the practice. Once a person has been attuned, their hands become a channel for concentrated life energy that can promote healing and balance in themselves and others.
In the Western world, medicine generally relies on physical intervention, such as surgery or medication, to promote healing. Eastern healing traditions rely on energetic manipulation, and energy medicine remains a part of mainstream healing practiced in hospitals in the East to this day.

How Does Reiki Work?

To answer the question what is Reiki? you need to consider the way in which it heals. Reiki works to restore the natural energetic balance in a person’s body. That energetic balance can become disrupted or frayed by stress, injury or illness. Life force energy is responsive to thoughts, feelings, presence and compassion.
In a Reiki session, a trained Reiki practitioner works to charge the recipient’s energy field with positive energy and help restore a healthy, balanced flow of life energy throughout the body.

Every person responds to Reiki differently, because the attuned energy travels to the parts of the body that need it most. Sometimes it is a general feeling, that helps to create relaxation throughout all the body systems for a particularly stressed recipient. Sometimes it will feel targeted, to heal specific areas requiring attention.

Often practitioners and recipients feel a warm flowing sensation, but often, nothing is felt directly. Instead, the body takes the time to incorporate the changes applied by the attuned Reiki practitioner. The benefits may not be felt until after a session is complete, sometimes even days later.

All in all, Reiki is a gentle healing art that uses an “energetic dance” between the practitioner and recipient to create holistic healing throughout the systems of the body.

Walk - Talk Therapy

Walk-Talk Therapy is just like it sounds – linking walking outdoors with traditional talking therapy.
With Walk-Talk Therapy, the client receives the benefits from mental health therapy, while at the same time receiving the benefits of physical exercise; a powerful two-in-one treatment. “Research has consistently shown that exercise can significantly improve anxiety, stress and overall mood. Walking is not only good for physical well-being but it is also good for your mental health”. The simple act of walking and moving while talking creates an environment of possibility and change; healing and breakthrough occurs at your pace!
Many people say that Walking Talking Therapy is a more relaxed environment than the conventional counselling office. Others state that it is a great motivational tool to jump start a more active lifestyle.

People often feel better immediately because it:

1. Is easy, natural and relaxing to be outdoors or out in a natural environment.

2. Doesn’t require a lot of eye contact and it is more comfortable to walk and talk side by side than in an office.

3. Allows you to think clearly and creatively about your problems. Therefore, find solutions quicker.

4. Is healthy and uplifting because walking improves your health and energy levels,so you sleep better and
feel more energetic.

5. Is distressing, soothing, calming and nice to be outdoors or walk in nature. So you fret less about your problems.

6. Is suitable for everyone. You set your own walking pace, from a gentle stroll to a brisk pace – whatever
you are comfortable with.

I have spent many years walking around various woods and walking trails in Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire and have found many answers for myself out in the open air and away from society.
I suggest decent foot wear and fluids to drink due to the walk distances we may cover.
