What is Reiki Healing?
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing.
It is based on the idea that an unseen life force flows through us, and is what causes us to be alive.
A Reiki treatment feels like a wonderful relaxing energy flowing around and through you. Reiki heals the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects.
During and after a treatment, feelings of peace, well-being and relaxation are often felt.
It is a simple and natural method of promoting healing through the hands of the practitioner who will transfer or channel the energy to you, enabling you to feel that deep sense of relaxation and well-being.
Although it is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion and there is no need to believe anything in order to use the wonderful benefits of Reiki.
How does Reiki work?
Life force flows through us and Eastern medicine believes that this life force flows through the physical body through pathways called chakras and meridians. It also flows around us in a field of energy called the aura. When this flow is disrupted it can cause imbalance or diminished function in the mind and body.
Reiki heals by flowing through the affected parts of the energy field and charging them with positive energy. Reiki clears and heals the energy pathways allowing your life force to flow in a healthy way.
Reiki can never cause harm. It is always helpful.
What is a treatment like?
A Reiki treatment will usually last between 45 and 90 minutes.
The client remains fully clothed and usual lies on a massage table, but clients can remain seated if they prefer.
The practitioner then places his or her hands on or near the clients body in a series of hand position around the head, shoulders, stomach and feet. Other more specific points can be used, depending on the needs of the client. Each hand position is held for 3 to 10 minutes.
