Mindfulness is simply being aware of what is happening right now without wishing it were different; enjoying the pleasant without holding on when it changes which it will, being with the unpleasant without fearing it will always be this way, which it won't. James Baraz.

Reiki is a Japanese energy healing technique that promotes relaxation, reduces stress and anxiety through gentle touch.
Rei means“universal,” and Ki means “life force energy” that flows through all living things.
Reiki practitioners use their hands to deliver energy to the client through gentle “laying of hands” on the client improving the flow and balance of energy to support healing.
Energy can stagnate in the body where there has been physical injury or even emotional pain. In time, these energy blocks can cause illness.
Reiki aims to improve the flow of energy around and throughout the body. This can enable deep relaxation, pain relief, healing, improved mood, better sleep, improved insomnia symptoms, lowers blood pressure, emotional well-being and reduce other symptoms of illness.

The ability of the brain to form new connections and pathways and change how its circuits are wired.With training in positive neuroplasticity we can rewire our brain to notice the good legitimately. The trainings we use are based on Rick Hanson's ground breaking work .
is an approach to communication, personal development and psychotherapy developed in America in the 1970s by Richard Bandler and John Grinder. It involves looking at your thoughts and language uses and how it effects your behaviours.
It is useful for anxiety, depression ,phobias and getting rid of behaviours that no longer serve you such as overeating ,smoking, drinking . We have seen amazing success with it when using it in the one to one sessions.
A routine NLP session would cost €200 . We here at Wellness Ur Way are currently charging €120 per session and offer 3 session packages for €300.
The Polyvagal Theory of Stress
A theory about how stress manifests itself in the body. It is based on the vagus nerve and looks at our autonomic nervous system. The autonomic nervous system is part of the peripheral nervous system that is responsible for regulating involuntary body functions ,such as heartbeat, breathing blood flow and digestion .
I have completed a year of training with Deb Dana in how to use this in clinical practice . Eg a polyvagal breathing exercise involves making the out breath longer than the inbreath . This calms the nervous system down .
Emotional Freedom Technique
EFT or tapping as it is often referred to is a technique used to treat anxiety, stress, self limiting beliefs, deep rooted past trauma, fearful events, physical pain and lots more.
EFT is similar to accupuncture in that in involves applying pressure to the meridian points around the body, only instead of using needles we use our fingertips to tap on the points applying pressure. Meridians are energy centres in the body. They are like rivers of energy flowing up and down throughout the body. When we experience stress, anxiety or other emotionally charged events it can cause blockages in the energy system. By tapping on the acupressure points we clear blocked energy and reduce the emotional charge of the event.
