What is Reiki?
Reiki is a subtle energy treatment, an ancient form of ‘hands-on’ healing originating from Tibet, China and India. The potential of Reiki healing becomes apparent if we consider that the word Reiki means “universal life force energy” and that during treatment, practitioner and client brainwaves are synchronised in alpha state, which pulses in unison with the earth’s magnetic field.
Reiki energy is channelled to all levels of being including physical, emotional and spiritual.
What happens during Reiki?
Treatment begins with a short initial consultation. Following this, the client remains fully clothed and relaxes on a couch. Jewellery and shoes are removed. Appropriate colour essences and music may be used as the practitioner places their hands gently on the client’s body and holds the position for as long as needed. Both the front and back of the body will receive Reiki healing, from head to toe! Professional integrity is retained throughout.
You might feel a warmth or tingling sensations in certain areas, or deeply relaxed – the experience varies from person to person.
Who is it for?
Reiki is suitable for most individuals, particularly those who are challenged by disease or managing emotional changes in their life – Reiki is used in hospitals and prisons. It is suitable for all age groups and expectant mothers and by those unable to lay prone or supine. Reiki can be experienced as a ‘one off’ treatment, a 3-week treatment session, or as part of ongoing healing.
