Johrei

 

What is it?

Johrei is a Japanese therapy started in the early 20th century. Described as more of a way of life than a therapy, Johrei aims to eliminate toxins from the body through touch, and promotes a more natural way of living.

A treatment lasts between 60 and 90 minutes, and is conducted with the client fully clothed and sat on the floor or a futon. The therapist will ask questions about physical and mental health, he or she will then hold their hands over your body to channel healing energy, areas of toxic build up are found using gentle pressure and then channeled to the kidneys, which flush out any toxins.

Practitioners claim that Johrei boosts the body's immune system by eliminating toxins and encouraging the body to heal itself. The treatment is also beneficial for stress related conditions, allergies and chronic pain. Clients are encouraged to devote time to their health requirements, and initially 2 or 3 treatments a week may be recommended.

Johrei is given on a one-to-one basis by a qualified therapist, although workshops are available to encourage people to study the method and use it on family and friends.
