What is Reiki?
The word Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) is Japanese technique that is used to reduce stress, encourage relaxation which in turn promotes healing.
REI – a universal energy
KI – life force energy that flows through all living things
Reiki is a holistic, light-touch, energy-based method of healing that treats the whole person including body, mind and spirit. As we go through everyday stress in our lives, our body can start to store emotions (fear, anxiety, grief, anger, etc.). Overtime, this can create blockages within our bodies including our chakras/energy centers which can cause physical symptoms or dis-ease within our bodies. A Reiki practitioner channels the Reiki throughout your body which helps to release blockages, restore balance and enhance/accelerate the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
Reiki works to restore physical and emotional balance and can assist with creativity, stress, relaxation, pain, ease of movement, emotional stress and much more! Reiki also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques and can assist with relieving side effects of medications and promote recovery.
What Happens during a Reiki Session?
The client, fully clothed, lies on the treatment table. The practitioner’s hands remain in a stationary position, gently on or slightly above the body through several positions from head to toe. All Reiki sessions include Aura cleansing and Chakra balancing.
Many individuals have reported feeling heat sensations, tingling or energy movement throughout the body as blockages are released. Clients have also felt deep feelings of relaxation, peace, increased energy, motivation, security and well being.
