Reiki at our Hitchin Clinic
Reiki belongs to the Energy Medicine family. Sharing the same principle as Acupuncture, Reiki works to balance the natural qi (energy) within the body, but without the use of needles. Due to stress, our body’s energy (life force) can become disrupted, blocked, or weakened, causing emotional or physical health problems. Reiki is a gentle hands on energy healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient’s body and restore physical and emotional well-being, as well as develop an inner spiritual connection. Reiki is effective in helping to treat ailments, emotional stresses, ease physical discomfort, and help boost the immune system.
Reiki treatments are safe with no contradictions. Reiki will not interfere with any medical care you are receiving. Therefore, Reiki treatments can be received by individuals undergoing surgery, fertility treatments or while receiving chemotherapy. Sukh also works with women to encourage healthy and conscious pregnancy leading up to the birth process.
Reiki works in conjunction with other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects, and can promote recovery from major surgery, and the effects of treatments such as radiation therapy and chemotherapy. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind, and spirit.
Energy healing can be very relaxing, supportive and empowering for the younger minds. Sukh works with and treats newborns, young children and teenagers.
At Woodside, we work as a team and Sukhs natural ability to give the best to her clients has worked wonders since she started. We have seen first hand how Reiki can benefit clients physical and mental wellbeing and reduce levels of pain and stress.

Abdominal Detox massage
Abdominal detox massage draws from the Eastern medicine perspective of healing, and understanding of the Chinese Taoist meridian system of energy, traditional acupressure, combined with Ayurveda techniques, for internal organ massage that helps clear out toxins, negative emotions and excessive heat or heat deficiencies that cause the organs to dysfunction. The massage techniques promote healing by massaging directly over the navel and surrounding abdominal area where stress, tension and negative emotions accumulate and congest.
Tensions, worries, and stresses of the day, week, month or year accumulate in the abdomen and are rarely dissolved. This can lead to physical tangling and knotting of the nerves, blood vessels and lymph nodes. Unresolved emotions sit in the digestive system as ‘poor emotional digestion’. The result is gradual obstruction of energy circulation, and therefore, all the vital energy functions strain, slowly weakening the internal organs and decrease energy. Therefore, disease and many symptoms can begin to develop throughout the mind and body.
Some of the techniques used in treatment were developed by white cloud Taoist monks living in the mountains of China, discovered that stagnation of energy (chi/prana) flow in the body interfered with the ability to achieve higher states of awareness through meditation. This stagnation of negative energies that block the internal organs, require recycling and transforming in order to restore the body’s energy flow and balance.
