What’s all this about: 1 hr massage with reiki
Ka-ching: $50

This morning I received a massage from a lady who works from home a few streets away from me. I found her on Natural Therapy Pages, which is a fantastic way to find new wellbeing and natural therapy practitioners in your area.

I was a teensy bit nervous because I’d never been to a house before for a treatment and the possibility of serial killers briefly entered my mind before I calmed down!

I went in there and she was nice & friendly, there were a few ‘cons’ to the experience, the first being that a football talkback show was on throughout so I found it hard to switch off as much as I would have liked, also her nails were long so I could feel them scratching me a bit – strangely, I didn’t mind it too much but I haven’t experienced that before.

She focussed on my shoulders which are/were really tight so it hurt trying to work out the tension, hopefully it did some good! And she also performed some reiki throughout as well which was also new to me.

Afterwards I did feel very relaxed, but also pretty bizarre, and still do. I don’t know if it’s psychosomatic or the ‘bad energy’ wanting to leave my body but I definitely do feel an energy shift or SOMETHING so I’m drinking lots of water with lemon juice to help flush out any potential bad things that have been stirred up!

Overall it was good, it cost $50 which is really cheap & I might go again, but I may have preferred a more relaxing massage as this one was quite remedial (getting into deeper tension & knots etc). That said, I do feel relaxed!

I’m also going to try a proper Reiki session as well and see how that goes, so stay tuned!
