Reiki (pronounced Ray-kee) is a word meaning Universal Life Energy. It evolved through the experience and dedication of Dr Mikao Usui who lived in Japan in the last century. After many years of study, research and meditation Dr Usui developed the system of natural healing, which today continues to be taught by Reiki Master/Teachers trained in the tradition.
A Reiki Treatment
The method of receiving a Reiki treatment from a practitioner is a very simple process. The recipient simply lies on a couch and relaxes. If they are unable to lie down the treatment can be given in a sitting position. There is no need to remove any clothing as Reiki will pass through anything, even plaster casts. The practitioner gently places their hands non-intrusively in a sequence of positions.
There will be a consultation before the Reiki session and and chat after. Reiki can be perfomed hands on or hands off. Please state if you prefer not to be touched.
Which conditions can Reiki Healing help?
It is possible to heal at any level of being: physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. Acute injuries can be helped to heal very quickly but more chronic illness takes longer. In some cases such as terminal illness, there is not enough time for the progress of the disease 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.
Reiki healing can be given anywhere at any time as no special equipment is needed. The practitioner is a channel which the energy is drawn through by the need or imbalance in the recipient. Neither person has to use any effort of will or concentration during this process.
Reiki flows to the areas of need, soothing pain and supporting the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Reiki restores balance in one’s life.
