Who would of thought that Friday 13th would of been such a great day.
I have been experiencing alot of stress lately and decided to make some positive changes to remove my self from the latest pressures.
Whilst looking at my phone one day I came across an OFFER – Full Body Massage and Reiki treatment and I thought, what the hell.. Lets go for it.
It has been a few years since I last had a massage so I was really looking forward to it.
The Reiki however was a completely new experience for me.
So – what is Reiki?
Reiki is a technique for stress reduction that also promotes healing, allowing everyone to tap into an unlimited supply of ‘life energy’. Reiki is thought to have originated in Tibet thousands of years ago. Reiki was rediscovered by Dr Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist early in the 20th Century.
I had a 60 minute treatment booked at www.theZenshop.co.uk and recieved a very warm welcome when I arrived :-). Once in the consulting room a medical history had to be taken to ensure their were no contraindications. The therapist explained how the session would work and the benefits and invited me to choose 3 essential oils of my choice. I chose Peppermint, Lavender and Ylang Ylang and the therapist made my massage blend from that – the personalised touch was great 🙂
My massage was out of this world, the music was relaxing, the environment was calming, the oils smelt devine and the massage was just what I needed.. bliss..
I was laying on my front on a special massage bed in my pants with my face down snug into that hole and I thought I was going to drool on the floor I was melting as she massaged my shoulders, neck, back, arms and legs. At mid point I turned over onto my back as instructed as she continued to massage my arms one by one, then my thighs, legs then my feet. I drifted.. and to my surprise woke myself up with a snore… LOL.
I was chilled… so relaxed…but it did not stop there..
The Reiki started from my head, my eyes were closed… but I felt her hands rest on my head, then my brow, then my face, temples.. it felt warm, but not uncomfortable, slowly she moved down my body but I was not aware of any touch this time as I continued to relaxe. I was in my own zone, my special place..
All I remember after that is a soft voice gently waking me up but encouraging me to stay and rest… and when I was ready to get up and get dressed… I opened my eyes to acknowledge what she said then closed them again ZzZZzzzz 🙂
Will I go back again??? Thats a given!
