Frequently Asked Questions
What is Reiki?
Reiki means ‘Universal Life Force (Energy)’ and is a Japanese form of energy healing using the hands as channels of energy. It is based on the principle that life force energy flows within us all. Whenever this life force energy is low, illness and disease may occur. For example, when we have a stressful experience and the stress is not dealt with effectively, blocks can remain in our energetic system, impeding our natural healing ability (our immune system).
Reiki assists with unblocking energy flow within the body. It is remarkably effective for stress reduction and relaxation, which triggers the body’s natural healing so that the entire system can re-establish harmony. This, in turn, brings about a sense of peace and wellbeing.
Reiki is compatible with all belief systems, enhancing life on a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level.
What is a Food Coach?
Do you align your teachings with a certain type of diet (eg: vegetarian or paleo)?
Who are your Food Coaching services suitable for?
My coaching is suited to anyone who is ready to commit themselves to making changes and prepared to demonstrate actions outside of the coaching sessions that validate their commitment. This includes having an open mind and being willing to receive feedback, being prepared to examine how their lifestyle choices have affected their health, keeping appointments and commitments to the coaching sessions, and taking action to move toward their goals.
If you believe that you’re not ready for coaching, but just need some help with dietary recommendations in order to improve your eating habits, then you may like to consider our E-Nourished package or Nourished Kick-Start package. (See prices.)
I prefer not to prepare my own meals. Am I still suitable to be coached by you?
I get it. We all get busy and find ourselves eating out (or bringing home take-away), or want some time off from preparing and cooking our meals. There’s nothing wrong with that when it happens occasionally. However, for long-term healthy eating, it’s important that you’re prepared to make the effort into preparing your meals and snacks. Food preparation is also an important process for mindful eating. If you aren’t prepared to do this, then unfortunately you would not be suitable to be coached by me. There are, however, other establishments providing that type of service that you can seek out like this one and this one.
