Not everyone wants to talk about what happened to them, therefore counselling and talking therapies might not always be the right support.
What is holistic therapy?
Holistic therapy refers to those treatments and therapies that help improve the wellbeing of the whole person; mind, body, soul/spirit and emotions.
SV2 are currently offering reiki sessions in the Derby and Chesterfield area. These are accessible during the current pandemic by an SV2 Sub Contracted Therapist, adhering to government guidelines and with COVID 19 risk assessments in place.
What is reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese technique which means life force energy. It is based on the belief that energy blocks within the body can cause physical and emotional symptoms such as illness, ailments, stress, anxiety and low mood.
This also includes trauma which can be held in the body.
Taster Sessions During the Holistic Therapy Pilot, SV2 are able to offer a funded pathway for clients to access Reiki. This includes two funded sessions that can be considered as ‘taster’ sessions, giving clients an opportunity to try an alternative therapy.
What happens in a reiki session?
You will lie on a couch to receive this relaxing treatment whilst the reiki practitioner hovers their hands over the body’s main energy centres known as chakras. The reiki flows through these removing any stagnant energy causing blockages. The session lasts around one hour.
How can reiki help?
Reiki can help in many ways. Here are some benefits:
Helps with relaxation
Reduces stress and anxiety
Reduces physical symptoms
Eases discomfort and pain
Improves a sense of connection to the self
Supports personal and spiritual development
