There are different types of energy healing, one of them is Kundalini. So, what is it and who is it good for?

In our recent article on energy healing, Natural Light at Holiday Inn Guildford explained the different types of healing that spa goers might expect to find. Amongst them is Kundalini, a creative  energy that’s held at the base of the spine and is good for releasing stress or providing focus. Here, they explain in greater detail, what Kundalini is and how they use it in massage.

What does Kundalini mean?

Kundalini refers to the life force energy also known as Chi or Prana. Its literal meaning can be associated with “coiling”, just like snakes do. The reason for that reference is because it’s an energy that lies dormant at the base of your spine like a coiled serpent, waiting ready to be activated. Through spiritual practice it begins to rise from the base of the spine through to the top of the head.

Where does the healing practice come from?

The roots of Kundalini are in Hinduism and yoga, where it’s considered a form of divine feminine energy believed to be located at the base of the spine in the muladhara (root chakra).  The term seems to have been adopted around the 15th century and it is often linked to tantra.

How do you use it in a spa treatment?

Here at Natural Light at Holiday Inn Guildford, we have developed a unique massage treatment that uses the Kundalini energy by fusing it with chakra energy points, which vibrate and turn to channel energy into the body and meridians.    Meridian channels follow the same path as the autonomic nervous system, along the spine. This is also where the chakras receive and transmit universal energy into and from the body. It’s a deeply relaxing treatment given by experienced energy healers.

What are the benefits of the Kundalini massage?

Kundalini is considered to help lots of concerns, ranging from stress relief to depression and anxiety. It’s also a great way to feel more spiritually connected. What’s really important to be aware of is that our treatment is a really special therapy - a beautiful form of energy healing and not a kundalini awakening. A kundalini awakening should only be undertaken after a very extended period of time with a very experienced practitioner and it’s not something we practice at Natural Light.

Who is your Kundalini massage recommended for?

Our Kundalini massage is suitable for anyone as the pressure is light to medium and can be adapted. The really beautiful thing about it is that afterwards everyone we have ever given it to feels a deep sense of peace and tranquillity. 

Is there anything you recommend doing before or afterwards to make the most of the treatment?

After such a deeply relaxing treatment it’s important to simply take time to relax and fall asleep if you need to so that your body can rebalance.
