Lasting Looks and Body Works
Reiki and Reflexology
~~~ Reiki ~~~
**Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) is a combination of two Japanese words rei and ki meaning universal life energy. Reiki is an ancient laying-on of hands healing technique that uses the life force energy to heal, balancing the subtle energies within our bodies. Reiki addresses physical, emotional, mental and spiritual imbalances. This healing art is an effective delivery system. The Reiki practitioner serves as a vessel that supplies healing energies where they are most needed. Reiki's ki-energies flow out of the practitioner's body through the palms of the hands while they are touching the recipient's body.
**Reiki is used to treat the whole body to achieve relaxation. It facilitates the removal of blockages in energy flow and the dispersal of toxins.
Long-term practice of whole-body Reiki will restore the general condition of the body. The energy channels are opened to allow the body to deal properly and naturally with both stress and the build-up of toxins. It will help you to cope with anxiety and depression.
**Reiki therapy is also useful when you are recovering from an illness. It can help with taking chemo and after-effects. It works hand in hand with what type/kind of medical regiment your doctor may have you on.
**Reiki will provide the additional energy required to recover from the illness. It will also reinforce the effects of any other method of natural healing. It can be used as a supplementary therapy as it is a truly complementary system of treatment.

This is the outside of the brochure I have to explain Reiki for those that aren't familiar with it yet even though it has been around for hundreds of years through other parts of the world.
Also to show that some hospitals, doctors, nursing homes and other medical facilities are starting to see what a difference Reiki can make and be used hand in hand with western medicine.
Reiki energy has aided in healing all forms of disorders and illness. Reiki complements and enhances all types of medical treatment. It is considered an integrative modality of healing and works in harmony with all other forms of healing. It is now used in hospitals, medical centers and hospice programs.

"Specializing in Fibromyalgia"
A natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet, hands and ears and their referral areas within zone related areas, which correspond to every part, gland and organ of the body.
Through the application of pressure on these reflexes without the use of tools, crèmes or lotions, the feet being the primary area of application, reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation and helps promote the natural function of the related areas of the body."
What is reflexology?
Reflexology is a form of bodywork that focuses primarily on the feet.
How does reflexology work?
The underlying theory behind reflexology is that there are "reflex" areas on the feet and hands that correspond to specific organs, glands, and other parts of the body.
Why do people get reflexology?
* Stress and stress-related conditions
* Tension headaches
* Digestive disorders
* Hormonal imbalances
* Sports injuries
* Menstrual disorders, such as premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
* Digestive problems, such as constipation
* Back pain
Reflexology is a popular alternative therapy. It promotes relaxation, improves circulation, reduces pain, soothes tired feet, and encourages overall healing.
Reflexology is recommended as a complementary therapy and "should not replace medical treatment".
How does reflexology relate to other therapies?
Acupuncture and Acupressure: Reflexology is similar to acupuncture and acupressure in that it works with the body's vital energy through the stimulation of points on the body. However, acupuncture/acupressure points do not always coincide with the reflex points used in reflexology.
Reflexology and acupressure are both "reflex" therapies in that they work with points on one part of the body to affect other parts of the body. While reflexology uses reflexes that are in an orderly arrangement resembling a shape of the human body on the feet, hands, and outer ears, acupressure uses over 800 reflex points that are found along long thin energy lines called meridians that
un the length of the entire body.

This is the outside of the brochure I have for Reflexology
explaining some of it. (even though it has been around
for a very long time), most people are just hearing about it
and there are hospitals, doctors, nursing homes and assisted
living and other medical facilities that are incorporating into
their therapies like massages and other physical therapies.
