What is Reiki?
Reiki is an ancient system of healing which rebalances the body.
Reiki, pronounced ray-key, means ‘universal life force’ and it refers to the energy field which surrounds everything in our universe. Energy flows through channels in our bodies and if one’s channels become blocked or our energy is low then we are more likely to feel the effects of stress.
Any illness or condition can be treated with Reiki and it is particularly effective in relieving stress, depression, anxiety and pain and it is also an effective method of inducing deep relaxation and maintaining a balanced state of well being.Developed by a Buddhist monk from southern Japan in the 1920s, this spiritual-healing technique. We all have a personal energy field made up of a system of connected ‘chakras’ around our bodies and, when they’re balanced, we’re physically and emotionally healthy. If they become blocked or unbalanced, it impacts our wellbeing. Reiki practitioners, or masters, can summon and direct good energy (happiness and calm) to replace ‘bad’ (anger, stress and frustration), in turn restoring health and wellbeing.
What happens during a Reiki Treatment ?
You lie down, fully dressed and a reiki master places their hands very lightly on or just above to guide positive energy into your body. They don’t diagnose or offer cures but channel positive energy to improve physical and emotional issues. Some people experience a tingling sensation, others feel warmth or a cooling effect. In the main though, it’s a relaxing experience.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It can been effective in helping virtually any illness and always creates a beneficial effect. Reiki also works in conjunction with other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery. It is a spiritual healing treatment aimed at bringing about gentle balance and wellbeing.
