Newcastle Finds Traditional Energy Boost
Reiki is a form of alternative medicine called energy healing. Reiki practitioners use a technique called palm healing or hands-on healing through which a "universal energy" is said to be transferred through the palms of the practitioner to the patient in order to encourage emotional or physical healing. (Wikipedia 2020).
Thankfully, our beautiful town of Newcastle has one of the nicest practitioners going around. Local musician Gerda Temple runs Awaken Healing which is a spiritual / wellness business where clients visit to relieve their anxiety, stresses or for general self reconnection. If you're lucky to catch Gerda playing her music around various venues in Newcastle, you would know her vibes are extremely welcoming. With a kind heart to match her voice on stage, Awaken Healing is where you can go to experience a meditative type experience.
Everyone is unique and there isn't a one thing fixes all however, what I've come to realise is that during these crazy COVID times, its easy to get caught up in everything and we sometimes forget to look after numero uno. Being aware of where you are and bringing that back to centre yourself may be the exact thing you need to do. This is what Gerda brings to the experience. There is a real connection and I would recommend in giving it a go and see how you feel for yourself.
In addition to Reiki Energy Healing, Awaken Healing offers Yin Chakra Sound healing which uses a combination of Crystal Quartz singing bowls, shamanic drumming, rattles, chimes, and vocal toning to balance and align the chakras and energetic bodies physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
Based on Lake Macquarie, Awaken Healing are often providing sessions at various studios in and around Newcastle. Keep up to date on the Instagram page of upcoming events or book in for a 1-1 session in a time that suits you.
