Pranic Healing is a form of energy medicine, dating back thousands of years and originating in the area now known as India. Some form of energy medicine, arguably, can be found in almost every culture, and many of us know these techniques as "the laying on of hands." In fact, Reiki, a Japanese healing technique, and a term dating back to around the turn of the twentieth century, is used in many hospitals and cancer wards to bring relief and healing to their patients. You might know it as "Healing Hands." No matter what you call it, energetic medicine is a POWERFUL form of healing for the body, the psyche, and the Soul.
Meghan Hays is trained in both Pranic Healing and Reiki modalities. She is a Reiki Level 3 Master and has trained with Dr. Marc Halpern at the California College of Ayurveda in Ayurveda Marma Point Therapy and Pranic Healing. Both Pranic Healing and Reiki are techniques for stress reduction and relaxation, which promote healing in the physical, subtle, and spiritual bodies.
Pranic healing and Reiki are based on the concept of "life force", which runs through our bodies and makes us alive, animate, or conscious. When our energy is low or blocked, we can feel sick, stressed, or unable to move forward in life. An energetic healing session helps this life force flow through your body at an optimal level to promote healing, clarity, and relief from physical, mental, and emotional suffering. Energetic medicine is not a religion and can be used in conjunction with all other Western and Eastern medical and therapeutic techniques to relieve affliction, side effects, and suffering, related to diseases and the stresses of daily living.
These unique practices involve light touch or no touch (up to the client) and is ideal for anyone, in any physical condition. Many clients leave feeling more clear-headed--feel more like themselves, experience improved sleep and less pain, and are able to move forward in certain areas of their lives in which they might have felt "stuck".
In a Pranic Healing or Reiki session, the practitioner directs this "life force," or healing energy, to the physical and subtle, or energetic bodies, depending on where the patient, or client, needs assistance and healing. We hold injuries, emotions, memories, thoughts, and even past life experiences in our subtle body. The energetic practitioner can direct energy to the appropriate areas to assist in relieving pain, releasing stuck stress, letting go of emotional "baggage", and bringing clearing and healing life force, or energy, to the body and mind. Depending on the client's needs and extent of the injury or illness, a client might need only one session for relief, or (s)he might need ongoing treatment for lasting relief and deep healing.
Anyone can learn Pranic Healing and/or Reiki; it has been successfully taught to thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds. Consultation about how to practice clearing your own energy through meditation and visualization practices may also be included for self-empowerment and daily energy-working practices.
You can think of Marma Point Therapy as the "original acupuncture," believed to have originated in India thousands of years ago; it traveled to China, and it has been preserved by what we know as modern-day acupuncture practice. The method in which I have been trained involves a relaxing and therapeutic combination of:
application of medicated oil to specific marma points on the body,
massage to those very specific points,
and energetic body work (called "pranic healing"--just like, or very similar to, Reiki energy healing) on those same points for very specific results.
What Kinds of Things Does It Benefit? We can tailor your session around very specific protocol for almost any ailment or disease you can think of, including, but not limited to:
lower back pain/injury
hip pain/injury (bursitis, arthritis, etc.)
any joint or area in which you are experiencing pain or injury
reproductive challenges and disease (fibroids, PCOS, prostate, menopause, etc.)
urinary system challenges and disease
respiratory disease and challenges (from bronchitis to COPD)
cancer and the side effects of cancer treatment
and the list goes on...
HOW Does Marma Point Therapy, or Energy Work...Well...Work? Each protocol works around the major area of the complaint or disease, as well as points around the body, which correspond to the area of pain or disfunction. For instance, in a lower back pain protocol, the points we work on are, obviously, on the lower back, but we also work around the front and back of the lower pelvic region and on certain points of the head, which correspond to general spinal alignment.
Energetic body work (also called "pranic healing" or "Reiki") moves energy in and through your body in order to stimulate your natural healing process on a cellular level. This type of healing is even used in hospitals in the United States, especially in cancer wards, and is often called "Healing Hands." Through the combination of physical stimulation of these major points on the body, medicated oil application (so you get some aromatherapy benefits as well!), and the movement of stagnant, excessive, or deficient energy in your body, Marma Point Therapy has assisted in healing pain, injury, illness, and even the most debilitating of chronic diseases, like Parkinson's and MS.
What If I'm Just Stressed Out, I Need Work on My Whole Body, or I'm Just Not Sure??? I can also perform a very general protocol for the whole body and mind, called "General Pranic Healing." This is a fantastic introduction, especially if you've never experienced energy work or Reiki. This protocol works specifically on 7 chakra points along the spine (chakras are nerve bundles corresponding to specific organs and bodily systems), as well as down all 4 limbs and their major points (shoulders, elbows, wrists, palms, hips, knees, ankles, and soles of the feet). This process involves no oil or massage--it is simply the gentle placement of hands on the points of the body listed above. This offering can help with chronic pain in all parts of the body, fatigue, stress, anxiety, insomnia, and normalizing energy levels, and it generally leaves you feeling more like yourself.
Cost $75/hour Most protocol take an hour, but certain protocol (like respiratory) can take about an hour and a half, and I'll let you know in advance how long you can expect to your service to take.
