WHAT IS REIKI?
“Reiki” (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 and evolved as a result of his research, experience and dedication.
We live in a world of energy that nourishes and maintains all living things. When this energy flows uninterrupted there is balance and harmony within and around us, and we experience a sense of well being.
Reiki is a non intrusive experience that channels energy which can be used to alleviate pain and promote a sense of calm in the mind and body. It is a very uplifting treatment used for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
Throughout a Reiki session, you remain fully clothed, only removing shoes. You will lie down on my treatment couch and be covered with a light blanket. Hands will be gently placed in a series of non-intrusive positions on or near the body. There is no massage or manipulation. The whole person is treated rather than specific areas.
Experiences of Reiki are unique to each person and their journey will be different depending on the individual's needs at that time. Clients may or may not feel sensations during a Reiki treatment. Clients have reported feelings of heat, areas of cold, tingling and pulsating sensations throughout the body, waves of energy and also visualisations of vivid colours. Other clients have had an emotional response, indicating that shifts are taking place, allowing harmony to be restored.
Reiki practitioners are not trained in diagnosis and will not predict any specific outcome from treatment
