The Feldenkrais Method helps you reconnect with your body and learn ways to move with greater efficiency, ease. Many people find that this Method helps them reduce pain.
Sounds like it didn't work. From my experience the patient should feel lighter. Perhaps try another provider or modality.
To figure out which modality will best serve your needs, first ask yourself what you’d
like to achieve. If you’re stressed and in need of replenishment, Reiki can be incredibly helpful, because you simply lie down and receive. If there are specific areas where you feel stuck — for instance, a fear you can’t let go of or a relationship issue bothering you — AshWork may be your best choice. (Note: AshWork practitioner’s don’t work directly on the problem, but rather the energy surrounding or supporting it.)
First, there is no time or space. Second, we are all one! Thirdly, the intention of the practitioner is that of wellness for the client. With various techniques, the intention of wellness becomes visible for the client. However, clients must protect themselves from all energies that come to them from a distance or hands on. The best way to protect oneself when having any energy work done is to ask that ONLY Divine Energy is being channeled.
This channeled divine energy is intellect and knows exactly what the client needs in order to heal. Since there is no time and space, the energy flows to the client with ease.
Wherever you are emotionally, Reiki is brilliant at helping to restore a sense of
balance. If you're feeling down or weary, it will give you a boost; if you're agitated or operating on overdrive, it works to calm you. It's very easy for our emotions and experiences to get 'stuck', and Reiki's main purpose is to relieve stuck energy, allowing the natural flow to be restored. It's unique to each individual's personal sense of balance.
When your Ki is strong, you feel ready to take on the world, and this positive state of
mind encourages physical health. On the other hand, you’ve likely suffered imbalances from blocked or weak Ki. Reiki’s effect is always beneficial, and energy naturally knows where to go to restore free-flowing Ki. Each individual will experience Reiki differently, but an immediate sense of stress relief, peace and mental clarity is common.
Long-term benefits may be more subtle and cumulative. Reiki assists the body in
releasing toxins, helping to maintain and improve health and manifest an outward
harmony, confidence, and happiness.
When we are relaxed and stress-free, our natural ability to heal is triggered, making
Reiki a wonderful complementary therapy that enhances other care or treatments you may receive.
Reiki is offered through a light touch, with the practitioner’s hands placed on or
above a series of locations on the head and body. Part of what makes Reiki so deeply
relaxing is you’re required to do absolutely nothing but lie down and receive.
The practitioner channels the energy through their hands, and this positive energy
begins to flow through your energy field. As you welcome this energy, you may feel a
surprising warmth from the practitioner’s palms or awareness of energy gently washing over you. Negative energy is released, a sensation which many people describe as feeling noticeably “lighter.” Each individual will experience Reiki differently, though it’s most common to feel immediate stress release and a sense of peace. Many report a refreshing mental clarity and wonderful feeling of radiance. It’s not unusual to sleep better than usual after a session.
Hypnosis is an amazing tool for helping you to release undesirable patterns of
behavior, limiting beliefs, and thoughts that prevent you from living life fully and
Hypnosis has countless applications, but common uses include improving self-esteem, relieving stress, aiding weight loss, improving athletic performance, and supporting the immune system. Since it’s a natural therapeutic tool with no side-effects, hypnosis is also a beneficial complementary treatment for people living with illness or chronic pain.
Numerous clinical studies show that hypnosis can successfully help support healing,
particularly when used in conjunction with other types of treatment your physician
Did you know that in childhood you are always in hypnosis? The mind absorbs experiences and learns new behaviors all at once. That unity breaks down about the time we turn eight as conflicts arise between our private and public behaviors. For example: "I didn't finish my book report, but it is bedtime!" To protect our role in the family, our mind breaks into two parts: the larger part - the subconscious - sends the conscious mind out to figure out how to survive in society.
While intended to protect us, this is the universal wound that festers as conflict between our physical well-being (managed by the subconscious) and our social ambitions. The side-effects include a host of physical, mental, and spiritual ills. Hypnotherapy starts with a dialog that reveals the underlying conflicts. Those insights are then shared with the subconscious in hypnosis.
This process usually takes advantage of the transition to sleep, which is when the conscious mind downloads daily social experience for evaluation by the subconscious. At Hypnosis Rising, I emphasize the state known to children and rediscovered by master meditators: the gamma state. The ultimate goal is not to punish and over-rule the subconscious, but to soften the barriers created in our minds by the original wound. That effort heals the past, empowers the present, and opens the door to unanticipated futures.
Guided imagery is form of focused relaxation or meditation. Some people have difficulty stopping/slowing a noisy mind or spiraling thoughts that lead to difficulty sleeping, anxiety, and stress. Guided imagery focuses on a positive and relaxing image that is intended to calm the listener down. The guide should be pulling all the listener's senses into the image for the best results so that the listener can almost feel they are a part of the image and they are fully focused on the image. The listener becomes so enveloped in the image that the previous disturbing/stressful thoughts are quieted.
Some practiced people can guide themselves to an image, but there are many options where you can buy or listen to guided imagery for free (ie youtube) if you need assistance.
Studies have shown that people who practiced guided imagery have decreased stress, anxiety, and even depression. The focused image can also take the mind off of pain and decrease stress that often triggers more pain (such as headaches). Those who have issues sleeping from a busy mind often become so focused on the peaceful image they find it easier to sleep.
The advantage of having a safe space to talk without judgment can be invaluable. In
our interactions with loved ones, it’s natural to filter our feelings or even feel regretful
about “unloading” negative thoughts. The help of a counselor to welcome your thoughts and help you work through challenges with compassion, integrity, and respect can provide remarkable mental and emotional clarity, among other benefits. When we have a strong foundation, we’re in a much better place to reach for our dreams and desires (self-actualization).
Guided imagery is also known as guided meditation. Dolores Cannon blurred the borders even more than the natural overlap between this and hypnosis. Dolores dropped a number of the technical parts of hypnosis and focused more on utilizing imagery to establish the connection with the higher self. The sessions are extremely interactive and instead of implanting ideas into the subconscious, as is the focus of traditional hypnotherapy, the goal is to elicit the information from the subconscious as to what's happening, why, and how to resolve it. Dolores labeled her method "unconventional hypnosis", and this style is utilized in a variety of modalities today.
Bach Flower Remedies are a safe way to address personality traits that you’d like to
work on, such as impatience or a tendency to be judgmental of others, as well as
transitory situations and deep-seated feelings or patterns.
You can use flower essences for as briefly as a dose or two for a passing mood or for an extended period of time to restore harmony in different situations. They’re great tools for managing the emotional demands and stress of everyday life and reining negativity back into balance.
Although these remedies work well on surface-level issues that you’re experiencing in the moment, they can also address deeper-seated chronic patterns of behavior. Like an onion, we develop energetic layers of emotions on top of our true core over time simply to cope and protect ourselves. Once you start shedding these outer layers, you get closer to your true self - that vibrant, authentic “you” feeling that many of us have been missing since childhood.
This system of natural healing was created in the 1930s by Dr. Edward Bach, a well-
known English physician, bacteriologist, and pathologist who dedicated his life to
developing the flower remedies.
Bach was a highly intuitive man ahead of his times. He realized that each person has a different attitude and personality; therefore, the best remedy to heal a person should be chosen based on their individual characteristics, rather than just the symptoms. He also knew that negative emotions can be at the root of physical symptoms and weaken the immune system (Think of the heart-racing effects of anger or deep fatigue that accompanies sadness). Bach set out to protect the body, mind and spirit with the positive energies of flowers.
He created 38 plant and flower-based remedies that apply to the most common
emotional states. Each essence of a different flower helps resolve a specific state.
Bach developed a method that’s still used today: transferring the energy from the trees and flowers to water, infusing it via a sun steeping or boiling method, and then using a small amount of brandy to preserve it. Today, the Bach Centre carries out Dr. Bach’s work, and practitioners are certified in more than sixty different countries.
Humans, animals, situations, and environments alike can benefit from this gentle yet
powerful form of energy work, which provides a new, broader perspective or resolution and a feeling of lightness and calm.
Regardless of the type of issue you’re dealing with, AshWork helps to support greater
acceptance of yourself, in turn helping you to accept others too. This technique has been successful in addressing everything ranging from pets’ thunderstorm anxieties to human fears of public speaking to transforming a room or house with negative, ‘stuck’ energy.
Created in 2001 by renowned energy worker Rudy Hunter, AshWork encourages a
sense of greater ease in your body, supporting a sense of increased wellbeing. It’s a non- invasive modality that helps bring relief and resolution to issues or concerns with minimal talking involved.
A session begins with identifying the issue at hand (if the session is for an animal, the
owner will speak on their behalf). Then, multiple rounds take place where the
practitioner will conduct energy work on different facets of the issue, and make time for quiet reflection. Your only job is to relax and receive. After each round, you’ll take
inventory to rate how much the problem is impacting your life; the intensity will likely
decrease throughout the session.
The act of “noticing” after each round helps the energy work integrate into the nervous system. You’re looking for things that are lighter; a new arrival of a sensation or awareness, perhaps a lifting of something that felt pressing or heavy in some way.
Sometimes, the environment you’re in even seems to change. That’s because when the energy field gets cleared, the air, lights, and your perception really does change.
This form of energy work calms the parasympathetic nervous system, taking us out of fight-or-flight mode to gently shift patterns. This in turn helps to support healing, making it a wonderful shortcut to change and improvement that releases stuck patterns and restores harmony.
I love acupuncture & have received a lot of relief from getting it done - from regulating my cycle & helping with the symptoms of menopause, to getting rid of my tinnitus, anxiety, and trouble sleeping.
For folks that may be weary of needles, I’ve found EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques, aka: tapping) to also be a very practical solution to anxiety and other negative emotions as well as offer relief for physical pain.
Qi (a Chinese word that roughly translates to energy) plays a vital role in the practice.
Just like a river, Qi flows through the meridian energy channels in the body. By
inserting tiny needles into various points in the skin, the healthy movement of Qi is
facilitated and the organ that is linked to that point is stimulated. The meridian
channels interconnect just like bodies of water, which is why a positive ripple effect
ensues to help the body function in harmony.
It's possible to ground yourself wherever you are, using a variety of different techniques. What's important is how it feels for you. In Art Therapy we quite often use earth based materials and the mere process of holding them in your hand can be very grounding. If you would like to use pink marble, I would encourage you to do so. Having your feet planted in a comfortable way, taking deep breaths in and clearing your mind, feeling what connects you with the earth- that's what's most important.
