A holistic way to improve your health.
At Hillside Holistic Health, we believe in using every reasonable avenue possible to help achieve good health. This often includes complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) therapeutic methods. Presently, we offer Reiki, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT or tapping), and meditation instruction, as well as other ancillary modalities as needed.
If you already know what Energy Healing, meditation, Reiki, and EFT are, that's great! You probably also know how helpful these modalities can be, as adjuncts to traditional medical treatment. Please note: we do NOT recommend that anyone abandon their medical doctor or ignore his/her advice. We do not diagnose nor prescribe medications. Reiki and other complementary healing modalities are used to reinforce and aid in healing, rather than to replace traditional medical treatment. Always rely on the recommendations of your primary physician, as well as your own judgement.
If you are not familiar with these methods of helping you to heal, here is more information.
What is Energy Healing?
Energy Healing is a general term used for holistic healing therapies that are focused on manipulating life force energy (sometimes called Ki, Chi, or Prana) to bring about balance and wellness. Some energy-based modalities involve practitioners using hands-on techniques. Other therapies involve non-touch or distant treatments. Specific areas often treated are the aura, human energy field, chakras and the meridian system.
What is Reiki?
Reiki is the name for both a healing modality and the energy that is used to perform that healing. The word Reiki is Japanese, and consists of two characters, Rei and Ki.
The top character, Rei, is variously translated as words such as "Guided", "Universal" or "Divine." The bottom character, Ki, is the life force energy that is within each living thing, and indeed, flows throughout the entire universe. So, Reiki means something like "divine life force energy" or "directed life force energy."
As a healing modality, Reiki means the channeling and direction of that energy in order to restore an energetic balance within the individual being treated. It is not the Reiki practitioner that does the healing; rather, the practitioner is only a tuned channel who allows the Reiki energy to flow through him or her, into the individual being treated. The individual being treated accepts this energy, and it naturally goes to the area(s) that are most in need of healing, whether that healing is mental, emotional, or physical.
While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn and use Reiki. In fact, Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether you believe in it or not, as long as the person being treated does not reject it.
Although Reiki is not a religion, it is still important to live and act in a way that promotes harmony with others. Mikao Usui, the founder of the Reiki system of natural healing, recommended that one practice certain simple ethical ideals to promote peace and harmony, which are nearly universal across all cultures. These are generally known as the Reiki Precepts.
What is Emotional Freedom Technique or Tapping?
EFT, or tapping, is a form of energy healing work that was created by Gary Craig, based upon his systematic study of energy medicine, meridians, and Thought Field Therapy (TFT), created by Dr. Roger Callahan.
Essentially, EFT combines a gentle and systematic form of tapping on acupressure points located on the body's energy meridians, with statements that help to shape the thoughts and emotions of the individual.
EFT has been shown to be effective in dealing with PTSD, phobias and fears, addictions, hypertension, weight loss, chronic pain, anger, depression, performance improvement... in short, just about everything has been treated successfully with EFT. EFT can be used to help adults, children, and even infants.
