Reiki at Riverdale
Riverdale Care Home in Braintree, Essex welcomed Nick Scarborough, a Reiki practitioner to meet our lovely residents and offer his Japanese healing alternative therapy practices.
Reiki is a type of energy healing and is a complementary therapy sometimes used as a palliative or supportive therapy with the aim is provide relaxation, ease stress and help with tension. The technique uses gentle hand movements with the intention to guide the flow of energy through the client’s body to reduce stress, pain and fatigue while promoting healing and enhancing energy.
Home Manager Renata said ‘Our residents and family members thoroughly enjoyed this Reiki session which brought a sense of calmness to the home, so much so we would love to invite Nick back by popular demand’!
The theory behind Reiki is that it opens an energy channel between the practitioner and the patient so the transfer of healing energy can flow, restoring the patient both mentally and physically. The low- or no touch therapy can offer significant benefits with little to no negative side effects.
We look forward to welcoming Nick back on a regular basis for our residents and families to benefit from this alternative therapy.
