Mind Body Connection
Doctors have pondered the connection between our mental and physical health for centuries. Until the 1800s, most believed that emotions were linked to disease and advised patients to visit spas or seaside resorts when they were ill. Gradually emotions lost favor as other causes of illness, such as bacteria or toxins, emerged, and new treatments such as antibiotics cured illness after illness.
More recently, scientists have speculated that even behavioral disorders, such as autism, have a biological basis. At the same time, they have been rediscovering the links between stress and health. Today, it is widely that there is a powerful mind-body connection through which emotional, mental, social, spiritual, and behavioral factors can directly affect our health.
Mind-body medicine focuses on treatments that, in tandem with any medical treatment you may be receiving, promote health, relaxation and wellbeing.
Reiki & Psychotherapy or Coaching
Receiving Reiki healing either before, during or after the ‘talking therapy’ part of your session is a great way to journey deeper into the soul, become more centred and to begin to recogise emotional issues that may be ‘stuck’ or ‘held’ in your physical body.
In a relaxed state you may be able to let go of your thoughts and fears and reconnect with your heart and soul. This may help you to release long-term emotional blocks from your body, facilitating wellbeing on a holistic level.
