Chi Weave Healing Arts
Healing and Meditative Movement to balance body, mind and spirit
A series of unique, powerful and meditative movements from the Far East, considered the older parent of Tai Chi and Chi Gong. The Ancients practiced Nei Gong to promote longevity, strengthening their immune systems to prevent disease, increasing core strength and ultimately developing their spirit. Holding and warming exercises to collect the energy are followed by a continuous dynamic movement which circulates this collected energy through the energy channels of the body.
There is a life force in this universe, that we witness in the changing seasons and the cycles of our bodies. Reiki, a term to describe this, is a practice whereby this life force energy is channelled through the practitioner to the recipient to restore balance and harmony in mind, body and spirit. Dr Usui introduced this form of Reiki in Japan during the early 20th century.
Chi Weave Healing Arts
Chi Weave, the weaving of energies within, represents a fusion of various healing techniques and unique movements that bring a sense of peace to body and mind, whilst connecting with your spirit.
Following a busy 23 years in a creative partnership involved in building houses, it was time to begin a journey of enquiry into the healing arts. The losses of close friends in my younger years had led me to question how we can take responsibility for our bodies at the physical, emotional and spiritual levels, particularly following illness and trauma. I came across an inspiring mentor, Martin Brofman, who had recovered from cancer several years earlier and shared his experience of a new way of looking at dis-ease.
In January 2003 I joined his Body Mirror System course to explore ways of healing tension in the consciousness with the principle focus on balancing the chakras.
This helped to direct my own personal development, and further study of the energy arts led to certification as a Usui Reiki Master & Teacher in 2006.
This century has seen travel to various sacred places including Egypt, Hawaii and Morocco, to expand my knowledge and awareness. Being introduced to the beautiful meditative movements of Nei Gong in Nepal 2009 opened up a new understanding of how to unblock energy through gentle yet powerful unique and ancient exercises. This led to training in Hong Kong, in order to teach.

Heather has been giving me Reiki for about 6 months, I have loved every session and I’m hooked!. I knew nothing about it before I first tried when it was offered by MacMillan Redhill as I was recovering from Cancer. I wish I could understand, let alone explain how she does it, but the reality is that I feel re-balanced, re-energised, extremely peaceful, re-centred and at the risk of sounding corny, I actually feel loved.
As well as being a great Reiki practitioner, she is a delightful human being, she is both able to concentrate on me very deeply but also lighten up and joke when it is appropriate. For Christmas I booked her to come to our home and give Reiki to my husband and to 2 of our children who are now young adults, and they have all felt the same. I was specifically impressed by Heather’s ability to deal with our son who, being on the spectrum, was rather reluctant to try something new. He came out saying he’d like to have another session!

Since starting Nei Gong with Heather I have noticed a change in my ability to switch off from stress and just be still in the moment. This is a wonderful tool for bringing more calm and contentment into your life. Heather is an empathic, dedicated teacher and full of wisdom.
From my first session with Heather, I have felt the benefits of Reiki healing. I was in terrible pain - both emotional and physical and it seemed as though Heather was able to pinpoint exactly where to unblock and release the negative emotions trapped in my body. From not being able to walk very easily, and in tears most days, I can now honestly say that my life has taken on a new chapter. Coupled with Heather's guided meditation, Reiki healing has played an enormous part in this recovery.
