Reiki is a Japanese healing technique where the therapist channels energy to the patient to activate the natural healing process of the client to restore physical and emotional health.
Reiki dates back many thousands of years before Christ and Buddha. The original name, disciplines and techniques were lost when passing down through the generations. However, a Japanese scholar and monk named Dr Mikao Usui rediscovered and made reiki popular again at the end of the nineteenth century.
Reiki means (rei) universal (ki) life force. Universal meaning present everywhere at the same time. Ki -the non physical vitality that gives life to all living things. Ki can be activated for healing. When we feel healthy our ki energy is high and life seems easier to deal with. However, when ki energy is low if you are under stress or tired and unhappy you will be more susceptible to disease and sickness and it is harder to deal with life.
Reiki is holistic, it works on the body mind and spirit by helping the body’s own ability to help itself. The blocked emotional and physical elements are cleared. Reiki is pure unconditional love and joy. Reiki stimulates growth, health, life and healing.
There are seven main energy centres in the body that control the flow of universal life force. They are called Chakras. Each Chakra is responsible for supplying energy to specific body parts. When they are blocked the body becomes unwell and the flow of energy diluted.
A reiki treatment re opens the Chakras and balances the flow of universal life force around the body.
After your consultation you will lay fully clothed on the treatment table. The practitioner will play some relaxing music and cover you with a blanket. The practitioner will then either place their hands on or a few inches above you (whichever you are most comfortable with) and move through a sequence of hand positions for between 3-5 minutes each position.
Some reactions that can occur:
A sensation of heat
A sensation of cold
Past life flashes
Pins and needles
Some clients may feel nothing at all, which doesn’t mean the treatment hasn’t worked.
You may experience detox like symptoms over the 24hr period after your treatment. If you have any concerns please contact your therapist.
REIKI TREATMENTS ARE ONE HOUR
