Post-Induction Therapy (PIT) is based on Pia Mellody’s pioneering work in developing therapeutic techniques for identifying and treating the underlying trauma of most addictive and dysfunctional processes. Childhood trauma, including child abuse, enmeshment, abandonment and neglect, is the origin of developmental immaturity, patterns of codependence, and relational issues. This model explores the nature of the child and the adult manifestations in the areas of self-esteem, boundaries, reality and being, dependency, and moderation and containment.
“Reiki” (ray-key) is Japanese for ‘universal life energy’ and is also a word used to describe a system of natural healing, This tradition was founded by Mikao Usui in the early 20th century and evolved as a result of his research, experience, and dedication. We live in a world of energy that nourishes and maintains all living things. When this energy flows uninterrupted there is balance and harmony within and around us, and we experience a sense of well-being. Reiki is a free ancillary service offered to enhance the therapy session. If the client wishes, Reiki energy is invited into the session and the environments of the client and practitioner.
Sound healing, which is also known as sound therapy, has been practiced since ancient times. The concept of sound therapy is based on the idea that every part of your body creates a vibration which resonates in a certain way. Everything in the universe, including our bodies, is in a state of vibration. When your body is out of balance, diseases can result. That is, illness is caused by blockage which stops the organ in question from vibrating at its healthy frequency. Sound healing works by sending sound waves throughout your body, which brings harmony through oscillation and resonance. This helps restore your body’s balance which in turn helps you heal.
