What is Gentle Release Therapy?
A wonderfully gentle therapy that could almost be considered a mixture of Reiki and Acupuncture (without the needles), which combined with additional techniques creates a synergy that allows the body to release.
Release? Release what? well, we often find in the first session a lifetime of stress being held in the body, that the client didn't even realise was there. Gentle Release therapists use energy skills to find areas that need attention, and are trained to know when it's time to move to the next area or technique.
We use Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Theory to understand what's going on in the body. For example the Liver is a key organ in TCM it helps the flow of Qi (Energy) around the body, the Liver is linked to Ligaments and Tendons, so muscular tension may well be connected to the Liver. The emotions connected to the Liver are anger and frustration...imagine someone really angry and all those ligaments and tendons becoming so tight in their body they look like they might explode! The Liver is also linked with the time 1am to 3am, so if you find yourself waking at these times and not able to get back to sleep for a while, you and your Liver may appreciate some help. Gentle Release Therapy uses techniques to support and release not only the Liver energy but also the other key organs in TCM. We also have extremely gentle emotional release techniques that we can use if there is an issue in particular that's causing you stress.
In addition to the TCM work with the abdominal organs we also incorporate cranial release regularly into treatments which involves an extremely light touch which can allow the body to release on another level. We also have techniques that release the endocrine (hormone system) and lymphatic system that can be used as required. All treatments are tailored to deal with what your body needs to release at that moment in time.
After treatments clients often feel lighter in both the head and abdomen and will very often be so relaxed they go and take a much needed nap, or be so energised they get loads of work done that they have been struggling with for ages!
