Helping Your Body Remember: Reconnective Healing with Algernon Williams

You may already know Algernon Williams as a great massage therapist, energy healer and coach. But he also offers a form of energy work known as Reconnective Healing. Here, in Al's words, is a taste of what it has to offer.

Your body knows how to thrive. It knows how to heal and how to be at peace. However, it's all too easy to override this innate knowledge with the hustle and bustle of modern life. The deadlines, long hours and often competitive nature of our lives all tell us, deep inside, that the world around us is not safe and that we must be on guard.

When the body is in this fight-or-flight state, our survival instinct takes over and directs what the body needs and does. When this situation becomes chronic, when we "live" from this place, there is no energy left for healing, no attention to ease and definitely no peace of mind. Of course, this state is necessary for our survival. It is what stops us from walking in front of a bus. But when it switched on 24 hours hours a day, seven days a week, we begin to suffer for it. For many of us, even our rest times are filled with thoughts of what we've done and what we still have to do; our brain is still working and we are still in survival mode, leaving nothing for recovery and rejuvenation.

Reconnective Healing quickly takes you out of survival mode and puts you into rest-and-digest mode. This is where your body can finally relax, recover, rejuvenate and heal. This is where you thrive. At times, seemingly amazing healings can occur, but this is really a process of reconnecting to your body's natural healing mechanism. It says: "Remember this state, you can let go, there is no need to worry." As the body remembers, you naturally become less stressed about life, you feel healthier and you become more at ease.

"Work has begun to get easier and life has begun to get easier. The trivial things that would have bothered me before have become just that - trivial - and no longer have any effect on my life as I now know it." - Jeff McIntyre
