Energy Healing and Energy Work have been in existence for thousands of years in traditional cultures and is gaining prevalence in the West. What affects you physically and emotionally also affects your energy field. Changes and imbalance can be detected and cleared by a skilled energy healer before you get sick. Energy healing is not intended to replace traditional healthcare and treatments. It is a complementary modality that supports medical treatment or a personal wellness plan. At Eye Street Massage Therapy in Washington D.C. we offer Reiki, Pranic Healing and also SEVA Acupressure which is closer to energy healing than it is to massage.
Pranic Healing is a highly evolved system of energy medicine developed by Grandmaster Choa Kok Sui that utilizes prana to balance, harmonize and transform the body’s energy processes. Prana is a Sanskrit word that means life-force. This invisible bio-energy or vital energy keeps the body alive and maintains a state of good health. In acupuncture, the Chinese refer to this subtle energy as qi or chi. It is also called Ruach or the Breath of Life in Hebrew.
Pranic healing is a simple yet powerful and effective system of no-touch energy healing. It is based on the fundamental principles that the body is a self-repairing living entity that possesses the ability to heal itself and that the healing process is accelerated by this increasing life force that is readily available from the sun, air and ground to address physical and emotional imbalances. Life energy or prana is all around us. Based on this principle, a healer can draw in Pranic Energy or Life Energy from the surroundings.
The reason Pranic Healing works on the energetic body is that physical ailments first appear as energetic disruptions in the aura before manifesting as problems in the physical body.
This pervasive energy that surrounds, interpenetrates and sustains the physical body, also affects our emotions, our ability to handle stress, relationships and even money.
Reiki Healing in Washington D.C.
Reiki, also known as palm healing, is a Japanese healing technique which focuses on balancing the energy in a body. It involves the transfer of “universal energy” through the practitioner to the patient to improve the body’s natural ability to heal itself through the balancing of energy.
It is based on the belief that a “life force energy” flows through all of us providing pathways to connect with our own healing energy. The universal life force is in an energy found within all things, people, animals, plans, rocks, trees. Even the earth itself has this life force energy. Someone trained in the use of Reiki channels that life force energy to the recipient allowing it to flow where it is needed.
Reiki is applied through a series of hand positions corresponding with energy centers in the body while lying down and fully clothed. It can be one of the safest and healthiest ways to reduce tension and promote healing, and can have many physiological and emotional benefits.
The reputed benefits of Reiki healing are manifold:
- Creates deep relaxation and aids the body to release stress and tension
- Accelerates the bodies’ self-healing abilities
- Facilitates better sleep
- Reduces blood pressure
- Helps with acute injuries and chronic problems
- Aides in the breaking of addictions
- Helps relieve pain
- Assists the body in cleaning itself from toxins
- And much more
Some healers may include tuning fork sound therapy in the session. Each tuning fork has a different frequency and corresponds with one of the 14 of the Chinese Acupuncture Meridians. These body meridians serve as energy passageways throughout the body. The healer uses these combined techniques to unblock energy congestion in a client’s body meridian and tune the imbalances in his or her mind and body.
SEVA Stress Release Acupressure
We offer SEVA Stress Release Acupressure in-studio and onsite for events. The SEVA Stress Release is a simple acupressure procedure given through the clothed body to a person who is seated or lying down. There are 16 specific points on the body that are accessed in sequence with firm but gentle finger pressure. There are no needles involved and it does not hurt. The session takes about 15-20 minutes to complete. It is a profoundly effective tool for calming the body, mind, emotions and spirit—the whole being.
The SEVA Stress Release Acupressure treatment was developed by the faculty of Soul Lightening Acupressure following the events of September 11, 2001. It was created as a gift to the world to relieve suffering and was first taken to New York City and delivered to those who endured such tremendous shock and stress during that time. Since then SEVA has been used in many diverse settings, including at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in DC.
Because the SEVA Stress Release Acupressure is noninvasive; requires no special equipment; is simple to perform, and only takes a few minutes to receive, it can be given to virtually anyone in virtually any setting. It is an extremely useful and accessible tool for addressing a wide range of needs, including general relaxation or extreme shock or stress.
