What is Reiki?
Reiki is an alternative form of hand treatment that promotes overall health on all levels – body, mind and spirit. This ancient type of healing was re-discovered in the early 20th century by the Japanese scholar Mikao Usui. Translated from Japanese Reiki means “Universal energy”. It works by transferring that energy from the Reiki practitioner’s hands to the client in order to encourage emotional, physical, mental and spiritual healing. On a physical level, Reiki stimulates the body’s self-healing abilities, on a psychological level it brings relaxation, balance and harmonising body and mind.
What to expect from a treatment?
Reiki is a very gentle and pleasant therapy with a very powerful healing effect. Clients usually lie down on a massage table, fully clothed throughout the session(only have to take their shoes off) and covered with blanket. Treatments are given either with the hands placed on the body (targeting the energy fields) or slightly above, allowing the energy to flow where it is most needed. There is no pressure and no sensitive areas of the body are touched. People normally feel a pleasant tingling or warmth in the area where the hands are moved, sometimes they may fall asleep. Reiki treatment starts a cleansing process and helps the body get rid of toxins, some people experience emotional release or may feel unwell but these reactions should cease after a few hours or the next day.
The benefits of Reiki
Reiki has been effective in helping every known illness and it’s entirely risk free. It can be a great comfort especially at difficult time in our lives. Reiki can be practised and received by anyone, regardless of age, background, religion, gender or beliefs, it’s safe during pregnancy. It’s recommended by doctors for helping with chronic conditions or pain, as well as stress reduction, anxiety, depression, it can ease insomnia. It can be used together with any other complementary therapy to improve and enhance your well being and personal development. Another benefit of Reiki is the Distant Healing – it can be sent to anyone, anywhere in the world and at any time (permission should be received beforehand!)
To experience this wonderful benefit, find a quiet space where you will not be disturbed, sit in a comfortable position or lay down, close your eyes and relax( light a candle and play some relaxing music for a background if you wish). The duration of the session is usually 30 minutes. Reiki will flow to where it is most needed. Everyone’s experience is different. Some people feel a strong connection, tingling or warmth in the area where the hands are placed and often they fall asleep. But others don’t feel any sensations which doesn’t mean that Reiki is not being effective. Either way the energy is doing its ”magic” and you can experience change after couple of days.
