What Type are You?

Reiki and Touch for Health are very different approaches to energy healing.   They both balance your energy and leave you feeling your best,  but how do you decide which is for you?

Take a bit of time to think about what you’re looking for. 

Soothing music?  A spa-like experience where you feel pampered and oh-so-relaxed?

Then a Reiki session is just the thing.  Enjoy a peaceful hour where your chakras are gently balanced and realigned, leaving you feeling grounded, balanced and refreshed.


Do you prefer to be an active participant? Want to take more responsibility for your own healing? Learn simple techniques you can do yourself?  Then Touch for Health is right for you.    The dynamic muscle tests, activation of various energy points and simple do-it-at-home touch ups will leave you feeling lively, involved and in charge.

What is a Chakra anyway?

What are these seven colourful places in your body?  

From “The Beginner’s Guide to the Chakras” by Anodea Judith

The chakras are holistic yet linear, stacked up like beads on a vertical string, from the base of the spine to the top of the head.  Each chakra represents an aspect of consciousness that is essential to our lives.  Together all the chakras create a system of consciousness that helps us embrace mind, body and spirit.   They sit in the areas of the body where there is a high degree of nerve activity.  When they are clear and functioning properly they act as a nexus between, and unlock the separation of, mind and body.  

Chakras receive, assimilate and express the various types of energy that enter your body.  For example, the throat chakra is all about sound and communication.   It helps you process and understand words and signals from the world around you, translates them into your own internal language and helps you express your thoughts and feelings in your own unique way.

It might help to use a computer as an analogy, where your mind is the software, your body is the hardware, and your life force is electricity powering both.  Your mind contains the programming that tells your life force where to go in the body.   This programming became instinctual habits encoded into your nervous system.  

The idea of a Reiki treatment is to get down into the chakras, get into the code that wrote the programs and get the bugs out, so your life runs more smoothly.  Here's a quick summary of each chakra (including the related element).

Root Chakra (Earth) - oriented to the consciousness of survival - our instincts - how you take care of your body, home, finances, and related to everything in the physical world

Sacral Chakra (Water) - relates to sexuality and emotions, our relationship with self and others, and the flow of energy through the body

Solar Plexus Chakra (Fire) - relates to personal power and self esteem, our effectiveness with the outer world

Heart Chakra (Air) - the centre of the whole system it relates to love,  the creation of our relationships and how we sustain them over the long term

Throat Chakra (Sound) - communication, creativity and self expression, how we relate to others

Third Eye Chakra (Light) - relates to perception and intuition, how we see things around us and how we see ourselves in the “big picture”

Crown Chakra - relates to consciousness itself, opens us to the universal connection to the intelligence of all life

Honour the Mystery

The human body is amazing.  It's natural state is homeostasis - a fine balance of it's many inherent systems.  We call this health.  When the body is not in homeostasis it works hard at regaining it.  We call this healing.

Doctors can explain in exquisite detail what happens at the cellular level when we heal, what order it will happen in, what mechanisms will enhance the healing, and what mechanisms will inhibit it.  But what they cannot explain is how it happens.

What is the fundamental, underlying process that causes it all to happen?    There are so many opinions!  It's Ki, Chi, Prana, God, The Divine, or Life Force to name just a few.   Despite centuries of medical and spiritual inquiry, we still can't prove anything.  It's one of the great mysteries of life.

"We honour the mystery of this healing system that is designed into the soul.  We do not need to know, and we acknowledge that we will not fully know how the healing really takes place.  We are interested in the mechanisms of how things happen, but we also recognize that the mystery of how the healing system actually functions will never be completely known."

Earth Dragon Healing - now offering Touch for Health energy balances

I am happy to announce that in addition to Reiki and Sound healing, I am now offering Touch for Health energy balances.

What is Touch For Health?  As Matthew Thie, President, explains “Touch for Health is a system of balancing posture, attitude and life energy to relieve stress, aches and pains, feel and function better, be more effective, clarify and achieve your goals and enjoy your life!”  Click here to read more about Touch for Health  

Using the principles of Chinese medicine, Touch for Health is based on muscle testing, massage, energy work and postural alignment.  It includes techniques to reduce stress and pain, and to release negative emotions that may be holding you back from achieving your goals.

Stress & Pain

Every thought and emotion affects our body.  We all know the physical symptoms that intense emotions can create - muscle tension, increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, etc.   It’s important to realize that even less intense, fleeting thoughts and emotions can be held in the body.    Everyday little life-things you may have forgotten, that your body remembers and accumulates.   If not released and rebalanced, these can continue to accumulate until your body responds with discomfort, and eventually pain and/or illness.  

The body works on a priority basis.  On it’s own priorities.  Think of it like layers of an onion.  This could mean, for example, that your goal is to relieve your low back pain, yet after a couple of balances your back still hurts.  But your sinuses are clearer, your mood is improved and you’re sleeping better.  Those were your body’s priorities.  Be patient - as you remove the layers your priority will be revealed and released.

Achieving your Goals

Touch for Health has a comprehensive protocol for identifying and achieving wellness oriented goals.  Working with the related meridian metaphors can get your own intuitive perceptions flowing, allowing you to creatively problem solve, move forward and reach your goals.  The body’s priority basis also applies to the goal setting process.  The related muscle testing is important to help keep you focused on your body’s priorities and improve your results.

Is Reiki a psychic abilitiy?

Is my Reiki practitioner psychic?

This is a good question and should be discussed at (or before) the first treatment.  Understandably, people can be confused about the differences between a Reiki treatment and a psychic reading.  The fact that some people who do Reiki are psychic makes the confusion all the more...well...confusing.

The short answer is "No".  Reiki is not a psychic ability.  There are so many websites dedicated to describing psychic abilities I won't spend much time explaining it here.  Basically there are 4 major types of psychic ability:  clairvoyance (clear seeing), clairsentience (clear feeling), clairaudience (clear hearing) and claircognizance (clear knowing).  While there are others, these are the main ways psychics receive their information.

By contrast, Reiki doesn't involve any of these "clairs".  Being attuned to Reiki connects the practitioner to healing energy which they then channel to the client during a treatment.  It's this healing energy that does all the good work.

If you have a Reiki treatment from a person who is psychic, they will pick up information during your treatment.   You should decide ahead of time whether you want them to share this information with you.

While Reiki is not a psychic ability, working with Reiki in a client's energy field with an open and honest intention to heal can sometimes (but not always) lead to spontaneous seeing/feeling/hearing/knowing things that are related to that particular healing session.   This doesn't mean the practitioner is suddenly psychic, it's just the interesting way that energy works.

Reiki is a fantastic way to relax, relieve stress and feel better.  Why not give it a try?
