Reiki and Pranic healing..... What is it? - Indy Ashbolt-Horth

As an energy worker I often get asked, “What is it that you actually do?”  There are many ways to explain this but to keep it really simple, I work with the energy system in and surrounding the physical body.  It is a holistic practice that often incorporates different modalities.

We are all made up of energy.  We are all vibrating on different frequencies, depending on what is happening with us in our lives at any given time.  For example, if someone is depressed, very depleted or ill they will be vibrating at a lower rate than someone is who is happy and well. 

We all have a physical body and an energy body (or bioplasmic body) that interpenetrates the physical body and surrounds us.  Any issues that occur for us first manifest in the energy body and eventually show up in our physical body.  The energy body and the physical body are so closely related that what affects one affects the other.  This is why it is so important to keep our energy body clean, just like it is to look after physical body with good food, exercise and plenty of sleep. 

Energy healing can be used to treat physical ailments as well as emotional and spiritual ailments.  Even people who feel well can have an energy imbalance or blockage in their field.  By working in the body’s subtle energy field, these blockages (which can be caused by trauma, physical stress, mental and emotional stress, environmental stress, negative and false belief systems etc.) can be cleansed, released and energised with loving healing energy.  This allows the body’s inherent ability to heal itself to be stimulated and balance to be restored. 

Chakras are spinning wheels in the body that energy flows through.  They are also known as centres of spiritual power in the body.  Most people are aware of the major 7 chakras but there are many more that aren’t as commonly known.  These comprise of minor and mini chakras and are located all throughout our system.  In Pranic Healing, we are taught to work with 11 major chakras, in Crystal Therapy we are taught to work with 9.  As you can see, things like this can vary from practice to practice but one thing remains the same and that is that chakras play a vital part in our lives.  The chakras help to control, regulate and energise organs in the physical body.  The chakras are also linked to our emotional well-being.  For example, if you are fearful about your life, this would indicate that work needs to be done on the base or root chakra.  There is quite a science to this and lots to learn - this is just a quick overview.

By working on our chakras and keeping them clean, energised and balanced, we can experience a greater sense of well-being.  Again, this can be achieved in many different ways.  I like to use a multi-pronged approach to this treatment, including energy work, sound and crystals as tools, as I find they all mix very well and work beautifully together.

So what can you expect from a treatment with me

I use an intuitive approach to energy healing.  Having trained in different modalities over the years including Reiki, Pranic Healing and Crystal Therapy, I will consult with you to find out what has brought us together and we will go from there.  Different forms of energy healing offer different benefits so there really is no one plan that will fit everyone.  I prefer to work together with you, after all, it is your body and your healing! 

Energy healing can involve a hands-on or hands-off approach.  I personally use both, but again, this can be tailored to your personal preference. 

If you don’t have any particular concerns but are just looking for some time out and to have a space to deeply relax and unwind, you have come to the right place!  All of my sessions are relaxing, gentle and nurturing.

We can all benefit from healing at any time in our lives.  It is an honour and a privilege to do this work and I look forward to our paths meeting, should you feel the call.
