Energy based therapies offered

Healing Touch

Healing Touch is a relaxing, nurturing energy therapy. It uses a collection of energy- based techniques to assess and treat the human energy system.

Gentle touch assists in balancing the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.

Some evidence suggests that it may also help reduce anxiety, decrease pain and aid in recovery after surgery. It is safe for all ages and works in harmony with mainstream medical care.


Reiki is a gentle, safe, relaxing, non-intrusive therapy, which is effective in maintaining balance within the body, mind and soul. The result is a deeply relaxing experience, increasing the body’s natural ability to heal itself. The term Reiki is a Japanese word meaning “universal life energy”. Reiki is believed to influence a person’s physical and spiritual health by realigning and strengthening the body’s flow of energy. The therapist may direct healing energy to areas of the body where they feel there is a need and work to dissolve energy blocks where tension or resistances are held. This improves the free flow of energy and brings about the balanced energetic state, which supports the body’s own healing processes. Patients report that Reiki is a deeply relaxing experience.

Pranic Healing

Pranic healing, or pranic energy healing, originated from China and Tibet. It is an ancient system of healing which utilises “vital life force” or chi to enhance and strengthen the bodies natural ability to heal. It is similar to acupuncture without the needles. Sometimes also referred to as Chinese medical qigong, which involves treatment by a therapist who directs chi force (prana) to the electromagnetic field that surrounds and interpenetrates the body. There is no need for physical touch as the therapist works with the energy fields and the chakra system.

This technique integrates ancient energy concepts into a contemporary form of healing now being accepted into many western cultures. Some evidence and anecdotal feedback from clients suggest that Pranic Healing can be beneficial for many systems of the body and aid in reducing pain, fatigue, nausea, insomnia and promotes sense of relaxation and alleviates stress.
