Reiki (pronounced Ray Key) is Japanese for ‘universal life energy’, and is also a word used to describe a system of natural healing. This tradition was founded by Mikao Usui in the early 20th century, but the belief that life energy flows through the body, deeply affecting our entire being, has long been embraced by many cultures around the world.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS – Reiki assists in restoring lost balance between mind, body and spirit. It can be effective for relaxation, pain management, reduced stress and anxiety, enhanced well-being and so much more. Reiki is not a substitute for medical treatment but can be used alongside other conventional or complementary treatment and often helps to provide emotional support during recovery.
RECEIVING REIKI – the client remains fully clothed and the practitioner’s hands are placed on or above the body. Energy is channeled through the practitioner directly to the client, using a series of hand positions, spending several minutes holding each position.
Now, although Reiki is usually a hands on treatment – because it is so powerful and effective it can also be sent over long distances.
HOW DOES REIKI FEEL – everyone experiences Reiki differently. Some feel a slight tingling or sensations of warmth or cold, others just a deep relaxation. Some clients find themselves in a deep meditative state whilst others feel rejuvenated and energised. Clients may also (upto 48 hours or so, following the session) experience a ‘clearing out’ of toxins and emotions as the body and mind rids itself of congestion.
