When I was investigating treatments for this month’s New You feature, a friend mentioned The Light Technique, so I took it upon myself to see what it was all about.
Met by a warm smile, a big hug and one of the most soothing voices I have heard, I instantly felt at ease.
Starting as a beauty therapist over 20 years ago, Katie decided to travel the world learning not just about beauty on the outside but beauty on the inside, and has since immersed herself in the health and wellbeing of the body and mind.
What makes the The Light Technique unique is that it mixes ancient and contemporary mind and body therapies, such as NLP (Neuro -Linguistic Programming) and Reiki with massage and facials, all offered in one treatment package that is tailored to the individual.
After a conversation on how I was feeling, which was particularly stressed out and floundering that wee, Katie administered massage around my neck and shoulders, (as I hold all my tension there) and Reiki, concentrating on my Throat Chakra, (relating to communication) and my Solar Plexus Chakra (relating to power and wisdom).
I have never had Reiki before and wasn’t entirely sure how a therapy where there is actually no skin to skin contact, but more of a holding of her hands over different areas, could do anything. I was astounded to feel this incredible heat in the areas where Katie’s hands hovered above. It made sense that this was the movement of energy as Chakras are described as energy centres and the only way I can describe the feeling was sort of electric.
Once the treatment had finished I felt incredibly peaceful. Katie noted that most of the energy and heat emanated from my solar plexus which hints to a person’s identity. Now if I tell you that I have been finding it difficult to decide on my focus and what I want, then Katie’s findings would certainly make sense.
After a chat about what I could do at home regarding visualising my wants and breaking a whole life vision down in to parts which I could manage step by step the therapy/treatment was done.
I definitely left with a feeling of lightness and felt over all more centred and energised. Even my very husky voice was less strained and wow, I slept well that night.
The Light Technique can help to treat a variety of problems such as insomnia, stress and anxiety, panic attacks, grief and loss, hormonal imbalances, muscular fatigue, nerve & joint problems and emotional eating.
