Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction, relaxation and healing. It is administered by a “laying on of the hands.” It is based on the idea that a “life force energy” flows through us. When one’s “life force energy” is open and flowing freely and clearly, we are healthy, well and alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress. It works with your body’s chakras, which can be described as energy centres within your body. The practitioner goes over specific points in your body and works to dissipate excess energy and send more energy to areas that may be lacking. They also work to release any blocks that you may have in your system.
During a treatment, the client often feels heat coming from the practitioner’s hands and may feel some soft shifting within their body, if any parts are tense. The client often feels very relaxed.
Reiki treats the whole person including the body, emotions, mind and spirit, creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation as well as feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
