What is Reiki?
Reiki is the Japanese word for Universal
Life Force Energy. It is a natural healing art using universal life energy
to promote balance, healing and consciousness. Reiki supports and accelerates
the body’s own natural ability to heal itself. It loosens up blocked
energy and promotes a state of relaxation. It revitalises and balances
body, mind and spirit and cleanses the body of toxins. Reiki does not
depend on a belief system and works on plants and animals.
What is a treatment like ?
In a Reiki healing session, the practitioner’s
hands are placed lightly on or over the client’s body, moving from
one chakra to the next, to transmit healing. The client usually lies on
a plinth. It is not necessary to remove any clothing. The practitioner
does not consciously direct the energy in any way. The energy goes to
the area where it is most needed by the recipient. Each individual experiences
the energy in a unique way. The client may feel a kind of flowing sensation
which is often combined with a sensation of warmth.
