Japanese Reiki is exceptionally relaxing and is one of those treatments that defies explanation in any great detail. Really you should try it yourself and assess the benefits to you as an individual. Generally the treatment is 90 minutes and though it does not involve self-help afterwards many people report a deep sense of calm which pervades for many weeks after their treatment.
Melanie’s teacher is trained by Tadao Yamaguchi and as such the techniques used in your treatment are pure, simple and originate directly from the Usui method.

Shiatsu with Lisa Cole BSc Hons PhD MRSS. Now available on Saturday afternoons.
Shiatsu is a bodywork therapy from Japan that is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) with the aim of balancing the body’s natural life force, called qi. In this sense it is similar to acupuncture, but uses finger pressure to stimulate acupuncture points on the body rather than needles. In addition, palming muscle tissue, joint openings and gentle stretches are used to balance the body’s energy flow. It is a holistic treatment that works on the whole person - not just with the physical body, but also with the psychological, emotional and spiritual aspects of being. It is the perfect therapy for the weary; in that it is relaxing to receive and can alleviate the effects of stress, reduce anxiety, restore energy and promote a sense of wellbeing.

This is a shorter version of the 7 breath relaxation ~ just 5 minutes which aims to help you if you suffer from Insomnia. Melanie would really like to hear from you if you find this helps you? Or not! The longer version is aimed at helping people to relax in 7 consecutive breaths and brings them out of the relaxation at the end. It takes just 7 minutes though you can literally do the relaxation in 7 breaths if you want! Any feedback is most welcome.
