My first step on the healing therapies journey
One afternoon in December 1998 I arrived back at my car, which I had parked on the corner of Newhaven Street in Hanover, Brighton. I would be driving off to experience my first ever Reiki treatment. However, I discovered that someone had driven into my car, leaving the front of the car smashed up and sitting on the ground. There was no note left.
I knew almost nothing about Reiki at that time. So, I felt quite awed on sharing my pain at the clinic when my Reiki practitioner smilingly assured me that Reiki is magic and that I might just find that after the treatment, the situation with my car would resolve itself.
After my Reiki session, I returned to where my car had been hit. It occurred to me then to knock on one of the doors in the street. I picked one. Immediately, a man answered, holding a piece of paper on which he had written down the details of the vehicle that had hit my car.
The insurance money I was then able to claim covered my MOT fixes too! As I was a student at the time, without much spare cash, I was thrilled with this result. My love for Reiki had begun. ...
One of the main benefits of healing therapies is relaxation, or stress relief. When you are stressed, you create dis-ease in your mind or body. According to a survey of UK residents conducted in January 2018 ...

- men stress most about work
- students suffer from stress the most

What are the chakras?
Chakra is the Sanskrit word for wheel. Chakras are energy centres—spinning wheels—through which energy enters and leaves both our physical body and the bodies of the aura. They bring in universal ki (Japanese word for the Chinese chi, meaning ‘life force’) and transform it into the frequencies our subtle energy system needs to keep us healthy.
The lowest or base chakra brings in the lower frequencies that are needed for physical survival. The highest or crown chakra brings in the spiritual levels of energy. There are 7 major chakras. A major chakra is a point where 21 lines of energy cross the body. All our chakras must be spinning freely for optimal health, so they are all as important as each other.
Each chakra has a corresponding colour. If a chakra is not functioning well, you can balance it by using more of that chakra’s colour. You can wear the colour, buy flowers, burn candles, or decorate a room in the colour. Another great way to balance your chakras is with a healing therapy treatment such as Reiki, Sekhem, or Indian head massage.
Each chakra helps us with an aspect of our lives:
Third eye: Extra-sensory perception
Solar plexus: Self-confidence
Sacrum: Social interaction
Base: Sex and physical security

And just because everyone should know about this ... The Work of Byron Katie is a mind-blowingly effective emotional healing tool. We ask ourselves four set questions about any painful situation in our lives. With Katie’s skilled guidance, the answers are often hilarious, always illuminating.
