Gentle Release Therapy
What is it?
Gentle Release Therapy is a gentle hands on therapy which could be described as a combination of Reiki and Acupuncture without the needles. The client is laying down with their clothes on and my hands are placed on the body, primarily on the abdomen, chest, womb and hips to release emotions and energy stored in the organs, including the liver, heart, lungs, kidneys and womb and ovaries.
This is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the oldest continuous medical system in the world. It states that the body’s vital energy circulates through channels called meridians, that have branches that connect to bodily organs and functions.
Having balance in mind, body and spirit creates harmony in the person, making it more difficult for diseases to develop, this is the aim of TCM.
We as human beings are all part of the whole of things, interconnected to nature, the environment and the wider world and universe. When illness or disease occurs, whether physical or emotional, we must look at all aspects of a person to determine where the problem has its roots.
I also may use some cranial release work on the head and face, as well as working on the feet to target the Endocrine system, which may balance hormones and also the lymphatic system. This is often done in subsequent sessions, once the liver and major organs have been released.
During the session energy may be released, which may or may not be felt by the client and/or myself. I may ask you to share any feelings, emotions or memories that may arise and then move around the body to release any trapped emotions stored in the organs. Often the first session is releasing from one or two major organs, mainly the liver and possibly the kidneys or heart. You may feel very relaxed and sleepy, or energised and lighter after the sessions. The aim of the session is to release any stored energy out of the organs to move through the meridians and out of the body.
