What is Reiki?
Reiki is a universal healing which helps reduce stress, enhances relaxation and also promotes healing. It is an ancient Japanese hands-on healing art. It is now recognised by the NHS and used in many hospitals across the UK. It is a complementary therapy which uses ‘Universal life force energy’.Rei – Universal Ki – Life force energy.
As scientists have known for years everything and everyone are made up from particles of energy; particles of energy that vibrate at different speeds to form something physical. Amazing really! The closer and faster these particles vibrate the denser the material. Therefore we are energy! and we have a constant flow of universal energy streaming through us on a continual basis. This energy interacts on many levels;
- Mental energy
- Physical energy
- Spiritual energy
- Emotional energy
How can Reiki help you?
When our energy (ki) is in good flow, our health, well being and inner harmony are balanced and all is flowing as it should. However at times of stress, illness, discomfort or distress this flow of energy can be restricted and blockages can be formed. Reiki aims to clear/dissolve these blockages and the life force energy is encouraged to flow freely again restoring balance and well being.
Reiki can be beneficial if you are suffering from :-
- Low self-esteem / self-worth
- Mental fogginess
- Problems sleeping
- Trauma, grief, loss
- Chronic health conditions such as fibromyalgia, fatigue, M.E, Arthritis
- Menopausal and hormonal imbalances.
What happens in a Reiki Treatment?
A Reiki session is carried out with you fully clothed lying on a treatment table. I will place my hands on a series of locations on the head and front and back of the torso. The placement of the hands is never intrusive or inappropriate, nor will there be any pressure. Additional placements on the limbs can be done as needed (for example, if there is an injury or surgical scar).
How will I feel after a Reiki Treatment?
The experience of Reiki is subjective, changeable, and sometimes very subtle. People often experience heat in the practitioner’s hands, but sometimes the practitioner’s hands feel refreshingly cool. Other common experiences are subtle pulsations where the practitioner’s hands are placed or cascading waves of pulsations throughout the body.
People often comment how comforting they find the experience of Reiki to be. An interesting study reported that recipients frequently feel that they are hovering in a threshold state of consciousness, simultaneously aware of their surroundings and deeply indrawn. Some people fall into a deep, sleeplike meditative state. Sometimes the experience of Reiki is dramatic, while for other people, the first session in particular may be uneventful, although they feel somehow better afterward. The most common experience is an almost immediate release of stress and a feeling of deep relaxation.
Reiki is cumulative and even people who don’t notice much the first time usually have progressively deeper experiences if they continue. Besides the immediate experience of the Reiki, you may notice other changes that continue to unfold as the day goes on: perhaps stronger digestion, a sense of being more centered and poised and less reactive, and sleeping deeply that night.
