Reiki is the name given to a system of natural healing which evolved in Japan. It is based on the idea that an unseen ‘life force energy’ flows through us and is what cuases us to be alive. If one’s life force energy is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. As a Reiki practitioner I have the capacity to channel this energy through my hands to your energy field.
In a Reiki treatment you lie, fully clothed on a massage couch, tucked under a blanket. I work down your body using a gentle touch. If you are uncomfortable with touch I can work off the body and the treatment is just as effective.
What you experience during a Reiki treatment is entirely individual and varies from person to person. Most people experience feelings of deep relaxation and many feel heat from my hands. As the Reiki energy encourages you to let go of all tension, anxiety, fear or other negative feelings, a state of peace and well-being is experienced. At the end of the treatment most people feel refreshed with a more positive, balanced outlook.
What can be treated with Reiki? Reiki nearly always induces relaxation, the space in which healing can occur and this can be at any level of being; physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. Acute injuries can be helped to heal more quickly, but more chronic illnesses take longer. In some cases such as terminal illness, the progress of the disease is unable to be reversed, however in such cases there is usually great benefit and enhancement of the quality of life, giving a sense of peace and acceptance during the time remaining and healing on a spiritual and emotional level can occur.
All said, the best way to understand Reiki is to experience it and see for yourself.
