Treatments offered: Reiki

Reiki is an ancient Japanese form of natural healing rediscovered in the late 19th Century by Dr Mikao Usui. The word Reiki means universal energy. Simply put, this form of healing uses the energy that is all around and inherent in us to promote wellbeing and balance the body and mind. This non-invasive, very effective practice treats the whole person to provide serenity, clarity and harmony, with a deep sense of relaxation and calm. Reiki does not require commitment to any specific belief system. Treatment is delivered unconditionally and for the benefit and greatest good of the individual. The effects of Reiki grow the more an individual is exposed to it. Treatment involves the laying of hands on various parts of the body and over any areas where specific symptoms are present. Energy is channelled through the hands of the practitioner into the clients body. The recipient often feels a deep sense of warmth and relaxation while the treatment is in progress. Lou is a Reiki practitioner, meaning she has been attuned to be able to channel Reiki energy. We all have the ability to become healers if we are open to becoming a channel for this wonderful gift.
Treatments offered: Reflexology
Jean recently joined the team at CALM offering reflexology at both our Burton and Derby studios. Reflexology is a non-invasive complementary health therapy. It can be effective in promoting deep relaxation and wellbeing by helping to reduce stress, anxiety help reduce tension. Treatments can be key in helping to optimise good health and help build resilience.
It is a touch therapy that is based on the theory that different points on the feet correspond with the structures and organs of the body and reflexologists work these points and areas to encourage function and balance.
What reflexology does is allow you to experience a period of time for relaxation where you have one to one attention, receive supportive non-invasive therapy, in an empathetic listening environment. Reflexology can be used safely alongside standard healthcare to promote better health and wellbeing.
When she isn’t delivering her treatments you will often find Jean in one of our Yin classes.
