What is Reiki?

Reiki is a natural healing art originating in Japan. It is a complementary healing process which can be used along with more traditional medicines and therapies. Reiki restores the natural balance in the body enhancing the energy of the individual, physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

Reiki is a holistic system for healing and harmonising all aspects of the person. When received regularly reiki can help protect the body, mind and emotions from 'disease'. Reiki is used for stress reduction, relaxation, general wellbeing and self improvement.

Reiki Principals

Good health is achieved when our life force is balanced and allowed to flow freely. Life force is also known as energy. It is the invisible force which gives life to the human body and everything in the natural world including animals, plants and trees. The way life force flows through us greatly affects our state of health. When blocked it leads to disturbances which will eventually manifest as illness or a state of disharmony.

During a Reiki treatment the practitioner uses life force energy to clear these blockages, to restore balance and well being, and to release the clients energy to flow freely through them.

Giving and receiving Reiki is a non-intrusive gentle and relaxing experience, which does not use pressure, manipulation or massage. Receiving Reiki healing energy through the hands of the practitioner is one of the oldest and most profound methods of healing known.

Reiki Treatments

During the Reiki treatment a Reiki Practitioner places his or her hands gently on or over specific points on the client's body. These points usually reflect the position of the Major Chakras. Certain sensations may be experienced by the client as the Reiki energy flows through the practitioners hands.

Some clients feel sensations such as heat, tingling or coolness. The Reiki energy will always present itself according to how each part of the body needs to perceive it. Some people find that a Reiki treatment helps them to go into a deep relaxed state and it is not unusual for people to fall asleep during a treatment.
