Energy Healing modalities work with the body's subtle energy. This energy is measurable but not visible. It animates the body and it is the healthy circulation and movement of this energy that contributes to wellness and health on every level including the physical, mental, and emotional.
Energy Healing modalities work to support the healthy movement of this energy. Energy Healing modalities are often indicated when physical practices such as massage or yoga are not recommended, as in cases of acute injury. For this reason Energy Healing is a a great compliment to most healing regimens. These gentle modalities however are strong enough to support anyone at any level of wellness to achieve greater health, peace, vitality, and joy.
At Emeryville Health and Wellness Center we currently offer the following Energy Healing modalities:
Reiki is a Japanese system of energy healing whose primary purpose is to promote rest and relaxation. It has been in use since it's inception in the 1800s. Traditional forms focus on the laying of hands on specific points of the body to stimulate prominent energy centers. These energy centers are responsible for all levels of well being. What is stagnant gets stimulated, what is blocked gets released, what is depleted gets gently nourished.
Reiki one of the most pure forms of Energy Healing where the same simple routine is followed in every circumstance, allowing for the intelligence of Reiki (described as a force of unconditional love) to go where it is most needed.
