Usui Reiki Healing
Reiki means “spiritually guided universal life force energy”. It is a vibrational healing modality initiated in Japan.
Usui Reiki is a Japanese technique for the reduction of stress and relaxation that promotes healing. It is administered by the “laying of hands” and allowing “life force energy to flow into you.” Reiki is also the Japanese word for Energy Healing. Our energy system includes the chakras that affect our health and the way that we experience life. A blockage over your chakras can affect your self-esteem, self-confidence, ability to experience healthy relationships, ability to communicate, and your natural ability to plan and move forward productively in life.
Reiki energy helps to reduce stress and stimulate the immune system, opening up our chakras (energy centers) allowing the body’s own natural healing potential to work for us.
Reiki is elegant, effective, gentle yet very powerful, and highly intelligent.
It is a healing art that never fails to respond to our intentions and desires for healing and total well-being. Reiki brings stronger balance to the mind, body, and soul connection.

During the Reiki session, your aura will be scanned and blockages released, you will leave feeling relaxed and refreshed. Sessions are geared towards healing of body, mind, and spirit.
What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a natural state of mind which everyone enters at some stage during their day. It is a state of deep relaxation and concentration.
Daydreaming can be thought of as a form of hypnosis. If you are concentrating on something of great interest or reading a book, watching a movie, browsing the internet, your imagination takes you to another time or space and you are oblivious to the outside world. This could be thought of as a state of hypnosis or a hypnotic state.
It is widely held that hypnosis is also a state of heightened suggestibility. It is brought about, by shifting the balance between two different parts of the mind; the Conscious Mind – analytical, judging, logical mind – and Subconscious Mind – our storehouse of all our memories and beliefs, creative and less critical or judgmental mind.
During Hypnosis, the Conscious and Subconscious parts of the mind undergo a tremendous shift. The Conscious mind recedes and becomes passive and the Subconscious mind becomes active and accessible. In this state, any unproductive, addictive, and destructive patterns, behaviors, and beliefs can be reprogrammed with positive suggestions to the subconscious mind.
Hypnotherapy is the applied use of hypnosis. It is a complementary form of therapy using the power of positive suggestions to bring and apply changes to our behavior, thoughts, feelings, and beliefs. For many years hypnosis has been used in therapy to help people make the positive changes they want in their life. It is a process to help you change in the way you want. Many people are seeking better physical and mental health and wish for a fuller and happier life.
Hypnotherapy is one way of achieving this. Today hypnosis is used by neuroscientists, professional sports coaches, celebrities, and in many hospitals around the world.
Hypnotherapy can help in many areas.

Will I be able to achieve hypnosis, a hypnotic state?
As a matter of fact, everyone has already been in a state which is essentially the same as hypnosis. You have at times been completely absorbed in something you were doing, e.g., reading a highly interesting novel. When you are in this totally focused state, people may speak to you and you do not hear or react, your attention is solely on what you are doing. In clinical hypnosis, you give your attention to what your therapist is saying and all other things melt away, and do not bother you. You will certainly be able to achieve a hypnotic state if you cooperate and concentrate on your goals and the work you are doing with your hypnotist.
What does Hypnosis feel like?
Hypnotic experiences vary between people, with most acknowledging it as deep relaxation and a very pleasant feeling and of complete physical and mental relaxation. It is similar to that moment between knowing you are awake and going to sleep. While in hypnosis, you will find your mind active, hearing every sound in the room, your thoughts racing here and there, realizing that you are not asleep and you will remember everything perfectly. When using hypnosis we activate the emotional and creative part of the brain, so feelings and senses can be heightened and with this comes greater concentration and clarity. Overall it is a great experience and opportunity to let go of our stress-filled world.
Will I be able to go into a hypnotic state?
You will certainly be able to go into the hypnotic state if you cooperate and concentrate on the work you are doing with your hypnotist.
You have at times been completely absorbed in something you were doing, e.g., reading a highly interesting novel and when you are in this state, people may speak to you and you do not respond. Your attention is keenly focused on what you are doing. In clinical hypnosis, you give your attention to what your therapist is saying and other things that do not bother you.
Will I lose consciousness?
Hypnosis is a state of mind where the body is very relaxed. Whilst the person in hypnosis looks as though they are asleep, they are in fact not asleep, they are “body asleep – mind awake”. When a person is asleep they are unconscious, unaware. Their conscious mind is asleep. While they are asleep they are not thinking things like “it is good to be asleep”. Whereas when a person is in hypnosis or in a “hypnotic state”, they are very conscious. They hear very clearly and are aware of where they are and what is happening. As well as being very conscious, they can think and reason and have full control of their mind and actions. They will not undertake or act on suggestions that are against their moral nature or that they do not wish to comply with. Hypnosis is NOT sleeping, loss of consciousness, the surrender of will, or loss of self-control.
Is a weak will essential for hypnosis?
On the contrary, a strong-willed person is more likely to be successful in hypnosis. Strictly speaking, you are the one putting yourself into a hypnotic state. Your hypnotist is only a guide or instructor. It takes self-control to go into the hypnotic state and with repeated hypnosis, you will learn better self-control. This will be useful to you in many other ways and is similar to being in a
meditative trance state.
Can I be hypnotized against my will?
No matter how well you have learned to go into a hypnotic state, you can always refuse to go into this state. You have learned to write but you do not have to write unless you wish to, hypnosis is the same. Hypnosis works with the will, not against it.
What is self-hypnosis?
All hypnosis is self-hypnosis. The hypnotist is only a guide to lead you into a relaxed, calm, and receptive state. In my clinic, I teach my clients how to bring about this natural state by themselves, and to continue to maintain their therapeutic suggestions in sub-conscious for their continued health and well-being.
Self-hypnosis can do anything you want it to! Champions in many sports use it to improve their game concentration. You can now learn to overcome unwanted and undesirable habits, such as smoking, overeating, screen addiction, or drinking. Effective pain control is now at your fingertips! You regain your self-confidence and realize success is within easy reach of an active mind. Replacing harmful emotions with positive and empowering ones leads you to a happier
and healthier life.
Can hypnotherapy help children?
Children have wonderful imaginations which can be extremely helpful when making positive changes with hypnotherapy. Children are also more susceptible than adults which can speed their transformation effectively. Hypnotherapy can help children with many issues including self-esteem, confidence, motivation, study, exams, fears, anger, and coping with bullying, eating habits, sports, bedwetting, nail-biting, screen addiction.
Can physical symptoms be caused by emotions?
Many physical symptoms are psychosomatic in nature, which means that they have an emotional or nervous basis. When you come to think of it, it is not strange that emotional strain or worry produces physical symptoms. After all, every organ in your body is connected with your brain by nerve channels, and it is logical that when you are upset emotionally you feel the effects in various organs of the body. Hypnotherapy is a great tool to address these emotional
challenges, therefore, helps to remove the pressure or effects on the physical body by focusing on your subconscious mind.
