Reiki is an ancient Japanese form of bodywork that works with the natural energy flow of the body, mind and spirit. Our bodies have the innate wisdom to heal, however, things like stress, illness or injury can cause imbalances or blockages in the flow of this energy. Reiki addresses these imbalances to support your good health and well-being.
Reiki heals by flowing through the affected parts of the energy fields and charging them with positive energy. This causes the negative energy to break apart and fall away. In doing so, Reiki clears, straightens and heals the energy pathways so they flow in a healthy and natural way.
You will lie on a table fully clothed, but the technique can also be performed seated in a chair. The practitioner will place their hands gently on the body or held just above in a series of hand positions. Areas of discomfort or injury can be given added attention. While the effects vary, most people experience deep relaxation. You may perceive a tingling or pulsing sensation, a feeling of warmth and comfort or you may even fall asleep.
Reiki results can be subtle. Some people say they feel little during the session, but afterwards enjoy a sense of calm, well-being, relief from pain and a deep restful sleep. It is possible you will experience powerful sensations or emotions during or after a session. These are the natural processes of your body healing.
Everyone can benefit from Reiki. It is safe, gentle and non-invasive. There are no contraindications to receiving Reiki. It addresses both acute and chronic conditions promoting balance among all body systems and the normal regenerative processes of the body and mind. Reiki can also be particularly helpful to anyone with touch sensitivity as the hands do not have to be placed on the body to receive the healing benefits of Reiki.
