What is Reiki?
Reiki is a form of energy healing. It is ‘universal energy’ which is transferred through the palms of the Reiki practitioner and into the Client. Reiki promotes healing on all levels and is a relaxation and stress reducing technique.
Reiki has it’s origins in Japan. It is a simple, safe and natural method of healing and relaxation. Reiki can be defined as a universal life force energy that is guided by a higher intelligence or guided life force energy. The healing powers of Reiki are based on the belief that if our personal ‘life force energy’ is low or depleted then we are more likely to become ill, feel stressed and depressed or become unhappy and weary. Through a Reiki session the practitioner allows Reiki every to flow into the client and the energy is guided to where it is need most. However this is guided by the intelligence of the universal energy and not the practitioner. The energy itself knows where it is need the most.
What can I expect from a Reiki treatment?
Most people find a Reiki treatment to be a wonderfully relaxing and comforting experience. You may feel tingling sensations, warmth or a sense of calm and peace. Some clients may not feel any sensations at all. However, for nearly all clients a feeling of deep relaxation is felt. During a Reiki treatment you are fully clothed. The practitioner will only touch you in a few of the healing positions – the head and the feet. For other parts of the body the practitioner hands will be a few centimetres away from you. After a session it is a good idea to keep hydrated by drink plenty of water for the rest of the day.
