Principles of Reiki
A Reiki healer's role is to act as a kind of "conduit" for Universal Life Force (aka Rei-Ki) and this passes through to the client, through gentle hand contact on the body. The touch allows for a different energy vibration inside the body that acts like a catalyst for the healing process.
* There are various lineages of Reiki, and some are hands off the body mode. Check with your Practitioner, and ask for the mode you prefer!
Principles of Craniosacral Therapy
Summing it all up then......
If you are a very private person, and just wish to "experience" healing, then Reiki might be the better option for you. If want to explore collaboratively your body felt senses with your therapist, then maybe Craniosacral Therapy might be better option for you.
If you feel safer with academically qualified practitioners, then Craniosacral therapy might be a better option.
If you like predictability and familiarity with the treatment format, then the Reiki treatment will be a more comfortable experience.
Common to both modalities of treatment, you can expect to leave feeling relaxed. Sometimes, clients report that they know something has happened but can't quite find the words to describe it. Words I often hear are ; 'balanced", "centred", "free", "opened", "relaxed", "energised" etc., Also, they may see colours, dreamlike images.
Often they return reporting that also other aspects of their lives and personal relationships follow that similar ease. . In addition to the above, those who receive Craniosacral add comments like, "Everything went so very still" and "it was like I was moving along the slow waves" or "there was no longer my body just like being in space"
When it comes to healing, practitioner intuition and their providing you with a sense of safety could be more important than technical-know-how or any number of certificate of "merits" on their wall.
Two Ingredients that are essential to treatment outcomes are ; a) the compassion and b) sensitivity of your therapist, to your specific needs. Please see my next blog "How to Chose a good Practitioner? "
Healing is not a miracle but a powerful everyday occurrence available for everyone, whoever you are or wherever you are starting at!
