What is Reiki?
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe healing modality, with origins stemming from Tibet, China and India. Pronounced Ray Key it means “Universal Life Force Energy.” It is an ancient subtle energy healing, where the practitioner’s hands are placed on or just above the client’s body. Thus, facilitating in the channelling of Reiki to all levels of being including: physical; emotional; mental; and spiritual; promoting the body’s natural healing process. No specific or particular religious beliefs are necessary to benefit from this wonderful energy healing.
What happens during Reiki?
Treatment begins with a short initial consultation. Following this, the client relaxes on a chair or treatment table, remaining fully clothed, apart from shoes, jewellery and watch (jewellery and watches may slightly interfere with the flow of Reiki). Appropriate colour essences and music may be used as the practitioner places their hands gently on or above the client’s body and holds the position for as long as needed. Both the front and back of the body will receive Reiki healing, from head to toe! However, this may not always mean that the client will be asked to turn over on the table as Reiki will flow freely to wherever it is needed. Professional integrity is retained throughout.
You might feel a warmth or tingling sensations in certain areas, or deeply relaxed – the experience varies from person to person.
Who is it for?
Reiki is suitable for most individuals of all age groups including, expectant mothers and those unable to lay prone or supine. Please be aware children below the age of 17 years must be accompanied by a parent, guardian or responsible adult who will remain present throughout the treatment. Parent or Guardian’s consent is required prior to treatment commencing. Reiki can be experienced as a ‘one off’ treatment, a 3-week treatment session, or as part of ongoing healing to maintain a healthy well-being. Reiki is used in hospitals and prisons and can also be used on animals.
