Reiki healing is an ancient and profoundly simple system of ‘laying on of hands’ healing derived from Tibetan Buddhism. The living body, human or animal, radiates energy. This energy is the life force itself, and has as many names as there are human civilisations. The Japanese word ‘Reiki’ consists of two words – ‘rei’ meaning ‘universal energy’ and ‘ki’ meaning ‘life energy’. Everything alive contains ‘Ki’ and radiates it. It is the bio magnetic energy of the aura. The vibrational healing practice of Reiki promotes a deep level of relaxation and healing. Reiki balances the recipient on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level using a non-invasive gentle, hands-on technique. This life energy force is the energy all around us and it enlivens us. In Reiki healing, the practitioner channels this universal life energy to break up energy blockages within the body and trigger the body’s natural healing abilities to improve and maintain health.
How does Reiki Healing work?
Reiki treats the physical body, but because our emotional, mental and spiritual levels are all related, this treatment affects us holistically. Reiki can do this because every cell in our body contains our body’s entire blueprint. This DNA is also a stencil of that cell’s optimum level of functioning. Reiki works by flowing through this stencil to restore the cell to balance and harmony. Reiki energy goes exactly where it is needed, releasing and clearing blocked energy, and cleansing the body of toxins to return the body to a state of natural balance.
What to expect in a Reiki session
A Reiki session will take 60 minutes but you may have a longer session if you wish. You will lie on a massage table fully clothed with soft music playing in the background. I will start at your head and move down your body front and back, sometimes you may not even feel my hands on your body. You may drift in and out of consciousness, it doesn’t matter if you fall asleep or if you want to talk during a session. The power of Reiki will go wherever you need healing.
