Reiki is an ancient hands-on healing technique that promotes healing on all levels by integrating and balancing the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of your being. Because Reiki works quickly and directly by easing pain and accelerating healing, it is gaining acceptance by western medicine and is even used in hospitals today.
Reiki accesses Universal Life Force Energy
Reiki means Universal Life Energy, and allows the client to absorb more Life Force energy which can be used for healing. Regular Reiki Therapy helps clients reach a higher level of consciousness, allowing the body’s molecules to vibrate at a higher level, which dissolve energy blockages that can cause illness.
As hands are gently laid on the body the Reiki begins to flow stimulating the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Because of this it can be used in conjunction with all other forms of medicine & healing. Recipients of Reiki energy sometimes report increased feelings of oneness and connection to others due to the higher vibrational frequency of their energy body.
Reiki is safe and promotes deep peace, relaxation and well-being
Reiki treats the whole person … body, mind, emotions, and spirit. This results in a deep sense of peace, relaxation, security, and well-being. Reiki is a safe, non-intrusive healing energy, which channels itself wherever it is needed in the body. It stimulates the body’s natural healing ability at the deepest level, removes physical and emotional blockages that cause illness or dis-ease.
Reiki helps by:
- Cleansing the body.
- Speeds up healing.
- Alleviating pain.
- Balancing the Chakras.
- Bringing harmony to the body, mind and spirit through a detoxifying process.
- Opens energy meridians promoting an increased flow of chi or prana throughout the body.
- Promoting a positive attitude.
Reiki differs from other energy modalities in that 1). the practitioner needs to be attuned to Reiki, and 2). the fact that the energy originates from a “Universal Source” rather than the healer.
How Reiki is administered
Reiki is administered with the client fully clothed. The client lies comfortably on a table or sits in a chair while the therapist’s uses a series of hand positions either on or off the body. The therapist also treats the Chakras as well. The therapist does not direct the flow of energy; this is done by the client’s own innate wisdom. The session can last for up to an hour depending on individual needs.
What you will experience
You will experience a sense of peace, calm and relaxation. You may see colors, experience temperature changes, tingling sensations, and/or sense the vibration or movement of energy through the body. You may feel sleepy and even drift off into a sleep state as the body enters into a profound state of relaxation. While the therapist may lay hands on the body; there is no manipulation of the body tissues. When the session ends you will fee balanced, more energized and peaceful.
Reiki is used for conditions such as:
- Pain relief
- Acute and chronic ailments
- Immune system support
- Cuts, bruises, injuries, and swelling
- Heart disorders
- Bladder problems
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Digestive disorders
- Relationship issues
- Encourage spiritual growth
Since energy blocks can be released on all levels you can come into contact with feelings and issues that you may have suppressed in the past, allowing for release and healing.
