With its origins in Japan, Reiki is an healing art based on working with, and channelling energy. Reiki promotes healing on all levels, physical, mental and spiritual. The word Reiki means universal life energy. It is defined as being that power which acts and lives in all created matter. The syllable rei describes the universal, boundless aspect of this energy while ki is the vital life force energy which flows through all living beings. The Usui system of Reiki is not only the most simple and natural healing method we know of, but it is also the most effective way of transferring this universal life energy. Reiki is a way of channelling this life force energy into the body through the therapist’s hands. This balances and accelerates the healing process in the body.
Receiving Reiki is a very simple process, but usually produces quite profound effects. The session begins by lying down on a treatment couch fully clothed, closing your eyes and listening to gentle soothing music, which helps to induce a state of deep relaxation. The therapist will gently lay their hands on you, non-intrusively, in a series of positions.
Each hand position is held for a few minutes, and during this time healing energy will flow into you, balancing your energy system, releasing stress, soothing pain, and promoting your body’s natural ability to heal itself. As the energy flows most people will feel warmth, heat or tingling from the therapist’s hands. Other sensations may include seeing colours or feeling as if you are floating. Some people experience an emotional release as emotional turmoil is brought to the surface and dissipated.
The general effect of a course of Reiki treatments is to produce a feeling of being ‘laid back’, calm and serene, more able to cope. If energy levels are low then they will be boosted, if spirits are low then they will be lifted. It makes you feel more positive and brings things back into balance.
Reiki can be a useful solution for a whole range of conditions such as:- stress, tension, anxiety and related symptoms, sleeplessness, emotional turmoil, low spirits, depression, chronic pain and low energy levels.
Reiki is not attached to any religion or belief system so it does not conflict with an individual’s beliefs, or lack of beliefs. It works as effectively on babies, children and animals as it does on adults.
