We try a holistic therapy at The Healing Zone in Dubai
Time Out Dubai Staff
Reiki is a healing therapy based around the movement and flow of energy around your body. Therapists channel this energy with their hands (although don’t actually touch you) to remove blockages, which can manifest themselves physically. Regular reiki sessions can be used to help relax, de-stress or to work on an emotional or physical problem in your life. Anne Cook is a reiki master and has been studying it for over twenty years in Dubai, along with other alternative therapies such as Aura Soma and Bowen Therapy. After a short consultation to work out why you’re there, you lay on a table whilst she helps you concentrate on your breathing and relax. She then uses reiki to direct healing energy to where she feels you need it. Patients can feel heat from her hands where she works, feel movements in the energy around them and develop a sense of calm, wellbeing and peace. Reiki works on everyone, there’s no need to believe in anything, and it can be hugely beneficial for a range of problems. Anne Cook also runs reiki courses for people wanting to learn more.
