Reiki (pronounced “Ray-key”) is a simple Japanese energy-balancing method that is used by millions of people all over the world. It is most well known as a hands- on energy treatment technique, and many people have regular Reiki treatments.
Reiki was discovered by Dr Mikao Usui in the early 1900s in Japan. People use Reiki for relaxation, self-healing, for spiritual, or self-development, and to treat others.
Those that practice Reiki are called Reiki Practitioners or Reiki Masters.
Reiki is not a religion and is open to all people regardless of race, religion or gender.
Anyone can benefit from a course of Reiki treatments, no matter your age or your state of health, and beneficial changes can take place over a fairly short space of time.
Reiki can produce:
* Deep relaxation
* Reduced stress & anxiety
* Boosted energy levels
* A feeling of inner calm, contentment and serenity
* A speeding up of the natural healing process
Reiki can also help you to:
* Feel more positive, confident and better able to cope
* Deal better with stressful people and difficult situations
* Develop a strong sense of purpose and clear-thinking
* Remove some of the ‘clutter’ from your life * Enjoy a better quality of life
WHAT MIGHT I FEEL?
Deep relaxation, heat from the Practitioner‘s hands, tingling, a feeling of floating or sinking, or perhaps nothing at all. It varies a lot from one person to another. But no matter what you feel during your treatment, Reiki is giving you what you need.
Receiving Reiki from a Practitioner is a simple process. The client lies on a treatment table and the Practitioner will gently lay their hands on the body in a series of hand positions on the head, torso, and legs, sometimes hovering the hands rather than touching. Each hand position is held for a few minutes.
During the treatment, energy is drawn through the Practitioner into the recipient, helping to produce a state of balance.
The recipient remains clothed throughout the session.
