USUI REIKI II
Usui Reiki is a healing practice focusing on self-treatment that balances and strengthens the functions and health of the physical body, enhances relaxation and self-awareness, and quiets and nourishes the spirit. The premise behind Usui Reiki is that human beings are energy systems -- life energy is the essential and most basic element of the human energy system. We suffer when we don't have enough energy; when we are out of balance. The effect of receiving a Reiki treatment is that our supply of life energy is increased and we return to balance. In this state of balance and renewed energy we can heal.
EMOTIONAL FREEDOM TECHNIQUES: EFT TAPPING
Emotional Freedom Techniques, or EFT, is an evidenced-based psychological acupressure technique, based on the same energy meridians used in traditional acupuncture to treat physical and emotional ailments for over 5,000 years, but without the invasiveness of needles. Instead, simple tapping with the fingertips is used to input kinetic energy onto specific meridians on designated points while you think about your specific problem — whether it is a traumatic event, an addiction, pain, etc. — and voice positive affirmations. This combination of tapping the energy meridians and voicing positive affirmation works to clear the "short-circuit" or emotional block you may be experiencing. You will be tapping with your fingers. There are a number of acupuncture meridians on your fingertips, and when you tap with your fingertips you are also likely using not only the meridians you are tapping on, but also the ones on your fingers.
