Healing practices have evolved over time, offering diverse approaches to enhance well-being and balance. Among these, energy healing modalities like Reiki and Integrated Energy Therapy (IET) have garnered significant attention. Today, we’re diving into these two techniques, exploring their similarities, differences, and how they can support your journey towards holistic health.
Understanding Reiki: The Universal Life Energy
Originating from Japan, Reiki is a form of energy healing that taps into the ‘universal life energy’ to promote balance and wellbeing. The term ‘Reiki’ itself is derived from two Japanese words – ‘Rei’, meaning ‘universal’, and ‘Ki’, which means ‘life energy’.
Reiki practitioners channel this universal energy through their hands into the client’s body, focusing on areas that require healing. This practice is often used to reduce stress, promote relaxation, and support the body’s natural healing processes.
Integrated Energy Therapy: Healing with Angelic Energy
IET, on the other hand, takes a slightly different approach. Rather than channeling universal life energy, it harnesses the healing power of angelic energy to gently release energy blockages from past emotional traumas.
IET practitioners focus on nine specific cellular memory areas in the body, where emotions from stressful events or traumas may be stored. By clearing these blockages, IET helps to balance the body’s energy field and facilitates physical, emotional, and mental healing.
Comparing and Contrasting Reiki and IET
While both Reiki and IET are energy healing techniques, they have different origins, principles, and methods of application. Reiki taps into universal life energy, whereas IET harnesses angelic energy. The focus in Reiki is on restoring balance and facilitating the body’s natural healing, while IET targets specific areas in the body where emotional traumas are stored, aiming to release these blockages.
However, these techniques share a crucial commonality: they both perceive health and well-being from a holistic perspective, believing that our physical, emotional, and mental health are closely interlinked. Both techniques also utilise hands-on healing and aim to restore balance in the body’s energy field, promoting overall well-being and relaxation.
The Synergy of Reiki and IET
Interestingly, while Reiki and IET have their unique qualities, they can work remarkably well together. The universal life energy in Reiki can provide general healing and relaxation, preparing the body for the more targeted release of energy blockages performed in IET.
As a Reiki Master and IET practitioner based in Dublin and Kildare, I’ve seen firsthand how these therapies can complement each other. Each modality offers a different pathway to healing, and together, they can provide a comprehensive energy healing experience.
Final Thoughts: Choose What Resonates with You
The choice between Reiki and IET isn’t about determining which is superior; rather, it’s about finding what resonates most with you. Each individual’s journey towards healing and balance is unique, and what works for one may not work for another.
Whether you’re in Dublin, Kildare, or anywhere else in the world, if you’re intrigued by the potential of energy healing, I invite you to explore both Reiki and IET. As a practitioner of both modalities, I am here to guide you and support your healing journey.
