Writing about oneself is difficult. We know about our life, family, friends and the good and the bad. To attempt to put all which is relevant to this essay into words would take a whole book. So, I have decided to keep my introduction short and relevant.
When I talk to people who become involved in alternative healing, very often they speak of a period when they were having problems. And they decide to look for alternative or complementary ways of making themselves well again. This is certainly the situation I found myself in during 1993. Those twelve months remain in my memory for two reasons. One was illness, and the other was the way I learned to heal myself.
We should not think about self-healing lightly. I know for certain we can make a significant contribution to the three aspects of wealth which are: – Physical – Emotional – Spiritual – If we decide to heal ourselves, it should be on all three levels. During 1993 the three came together, and my journey began. The feeling of well-being and the distinct improvement in my health became evidence of the potentials of Spiritual Healing.
So effective was the changes in my life and health I had to find out how Spiritual Healing works. In the latter part of 1993, I went to Whitwell in Nottinghamshire and began to work with healing. As we start to experience the ways this form of curative practice, we also explore other therapies. Reflexology was chosen to complement my recovery, again the effects of treatment were noticeable. No doubt about it, the distinct improvement in my well-being was not imagination; I felt great, my life had turned around. After six year’s of practicing as a Reflexologist, I decided to gain formal qualifications in Spiritual Healing techniques.
I achieved my First Degree Reiki Attainment in 2000 and became Reiki Master in 2002. At the same time, I studied and obtained my qualification as Reflexologist. During 2003 I also studied and qualified in Indian Head Massage. Allow me to explain my three main therapies:-
Reiki is a form of alternative medicine developed in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui. Since originating in Japan, Reiki has been adapted into diverse cultural traditions across the world. Reiki practitioners use a technique called palm healing or hands-on healing through which a “universal energy” is transferred through the palms of the practitioner to the patient to encourage emotional or physical healing. Reiki is a superb healing energy which makes you feel your batteries have been recharged.
Reflexology, is an alternative therapy involving the application of pressure to the feet and hands with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques usually without the use of oil or lotion. It is based on a system of zones and reflex areas that purportedly reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands, with the premise that such work effects a physical change to the body. With Reflexology, we work on your feet. During the treatment will feel as if you are floating. The therapy rids the body of toxins which cause many problems.
Indian head massage focuses on treating the patient through conducting massage techniques on the head and the areas surrounding it such as the face, neck, upper arms, and shoulders. The practitioner uses gentle massage strokes to stimulate the nerves, loosen up tight muscles, relax superficial tissues, and remove stress both emotionally and physically. Indian Head Massage provides extraordinary relief from, neck tension, headaches or shoulder problems.
Because of these experiences and the help Reiki and Reflexology have given me. I wanted to give something back to my World. And so, I opened The Sutton Healing Centre, which specialises in Reiki, Reflexology and Indian Head Massage. The treatments are funded solely by donation, and you are welcome to visit for your treatments. Come and talk to me at the show, to arrange appointments or maybe for your Reiki Attunements.
