If you have been a victim of abuse, chances are you have not made yourself or your self-care a priority. At the Center for Hope, we know that it is very important for you to take care of yourself during this very difficult time. As the saying goes, you must put your oxygen mask on first before you can help others. We know that you have many responsibilities in your life, including for many people children, jobs, and all the other stressors we all experience in our lives (compounded by the coronavirus pandemic) and even further compounded by living with or having been in a relationship with an abuser, or trying to leave an abuser.
We know how important it is to begin to learn how to make yourself a priority again. At the Center for Hope, we offer classes for our clients that focus on self-care and self-improvement. Please check our class agenda as the class schedule may change based on availability.
Another important service we offer our clients is Reiki healing. The word “Reiki” means “mysterious atmosphere, miraculous sign.” It comes from the Japanese words “rei” (universal) and “ki” (life energy). Reiki is a type of energy healing.
Energy healing targets the energy fields around the body. Energy can stagnate in the body where there has been physical injury or possibly emotional pain. In time, these energy blocks can cause illness.
Energy medicine aims to help the flow of energy and remove blocks in a similar way to acupuncture. Improving the flow of energy around the body can enable relaxation, reduce pain, speed healing, and reduce other symptoms of illness.
Some Reiki techniques
The techniques involved have names such as:
- extracting harmful energies
- smoothing and raking the aura
Our practitioners may use crystals and chakra healing wands, because they find these can enable healing or protect a home from negative energy. We believe that this type of healing can aid and assist our clients in their overall healing and recovery from narcissistic abuse. We offer virtual sessions over zoom or skype as social distancing continues to be of great importance to all our health and safety.
