Progressive Relaxation- Healing Touch, Reiki, and Aromatherapy

Touch is a basic human instinct and it has the power to comfort and reassure on many levels.  It can relax the body, calm the mind, and encourage healing and well-being.  It is a natural reaction  to reach out and touch with the intention of soothing and comforting.  It is not a surprise that the hands have come to be seen as the focus and center for healing energies. 


Progressive Relaxation/Healing Touch

Qi Gong (Taoist) based combination of guided breathing and gentle massage-like touch technique for body, face, and head dates back to ancient Chinese healing practices.  Promotes deep relaxation of both conscious and unconscious tension, enhances circulation, thermoregulation, relieves stress, anxiety, and brings about a feeling of well-being and rejuvenation.

Japanese energy based technique for stress and tension reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing.  Its origins go back to ancient Tibetan Buddhism.  Reiki was developped by Japanese Buddhist, Mikao Usui in 1922.  It uses a technique commonly called palm healing or hands-on-healing. 

All these modalities take a relatively short time, do not necessarily involve undressing, and use of oils is not necessary.  They are convenient, soothing, and can be done almost anywhere.
