Reiki is a non-intrusive, gentle and hands-on-healing technique that uses spiritual energy (the Japanese word Reiki means spiritual energy or universal life-force energy) to treat physical ailment. However, Reiki is so much more than just physical therapy; it works holistically to balance, harmonize and heal all aspects of the person – body, mind, emotions and spirit – promoting relaxation and a sense of well-being. It is a healing therapy in its most all-encompassing sense and is beneficial for all conditions ranging from physical issues such as headaches, to emotional stresses such as a recent break-up. Simply, everyone can benefit from the healing benefits of Reiki.
During a session the client will remain fully clothed. The practitioner will do a series of firm, but gentle holds on specific positions over the head and body of the client. You will usually feel relaxed and warm as the energy flows through you, although sometimes you may feel heat, coolness or tingling from the practitioner’s hands (this is quite normal). Some people may also feel a bit emotional at times, as the Reiki releases blocked energy it may cause old issues and patterns to be released causing old memories to flood back.
After a treatment some people feel tranquil and sleepy, while others feel super-energized.
