What is Reiki?
"Reiki" (ray-key) is Japanese for universal life energy, and is also a word used to describe a system of natural healing
We live in a world of energy that nourishes and maintains all living things. When this energy flows uninterrupted there is balance and harmony within and around us, and we experience a sense of well being.
In essence Reiki treatments can help the body emotionally or spiritually. It is a tradition that is open to any belief system.
Reiki treatment is a process that anyone can enjoy in the normal course of their life. Reiki can be used alongside other conventional or complementary treatment and often helps to provide emotional support during recovery.
A Reiki treatment
The recipient remains clothed and lies on a couch or sits on a chair and relaxes. It is probably better to remove shoes and spectacles. I will gently place my hands in a series of non-intrusive positions on or near the body. There is no massage or manipulation. The whole person is treated rather than specific areas. Sessions can take 45 minutes to an hour, depending on the client's needs.
Each person experiences Reiki differently depending on their individual needs at the time. Some people feel sensations of heat, tingling, or experience seeing colours, whilst others can have an emotional response, indicating that shifts are taking place, allowing harmony to be restored. Many people experience a sense of well being and relaxation, or fall asleep.
Reiki practitioners are not trained in diagnosis and will not predict any specific outcome from treatment. If people are concerned about their symptoms they should contact their GP.
