Reiki is a light touch natural healing technique that uses universal life force energy to activate the innate healing process of the body to restore physical, mental and emotional well-being.
The awareness that an unseen energy flows through all living things and directly affects the quality of our health has been part of the wisdom of many cultures since ancient times. This life energy goes by many names: “qi” in China, “ki” in Japan, “prana” in India and science refers to it as “biofield energy”. When our life energy is low, it is more difficult to deal with stress and anxiety, or heal from illness or injury. In these cases, we may not be sleeping well and this makes us more susceptible to illness. But, when our our energy is high, we feel strong, and can more easily maneuver through life and are less likely to get sick. Reiki is a technique that increases a person’s supply of life force energy.
What is a session like?
Reiki is administered through the hands of a Reiki practitioner with the client laying fully clothed on a massage table in a quiet room with soft music. A session usually lasts one hour. The Reiki Practitioner places his or her hands lightly on, above or slightly away from the body at certain locations from the head to the feet. Tissue is not manipulated. The practitioner’s hands are simply held at each location for a time as the Reiki energy flows from the practitioner’s hands and into the client’s body and energy field. A Reiki session feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that surrounds and fills the client and includes feelings of relaxation, peace, love and well-being that also promotes healing to take place.
Anyone can benefit from a course of Reiki treatments; all people regardless of age or state of physical, mental or emotional health. Your animals can benefit from Reiki too! Depending upon your situation, multiple treatments may be recommended initially and then regular maintenance sessions may be advised.
Reiki energy allows muscles to relax and increases blood flow to tense areas, which in turn quickens the healing process. Clients report help with stress, anxiety, headaches, insomnia, tension, upset stomach, sprains and many other conditions. Miraculous results are also reported. Reiki also promotes psychological healing, including release of anger, fear, worry, sadness, grief, depression and other unhealthy feelings, and replaces them with self-worth, support, confidence and tranquility.
