About This Treatment
Reiki is a Japanese technique that is used to heal physical and mental distress, and to support mental clarity and spiritual well-being. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy”. It refers to energy that flows through all living things. Because of this, Ki is also often called "life force energy," and is known as qi or chi from other lineages.It is a subtle and effective form of energy work using spiritually guided life force energy.
Reiki is a great tool for stress reduction and relaxation. Many people use Reiki for wellness. Reiki is not a cure for a disease or illness, but it may assist the body in creating an environment to facilitate healing. Reiki is a great tool to use as a complement to traditional medicine and is practiced in many hospitals and medical care settings.
What To Expect
A discussion will take place at the beginning of the session. The client will have an opportunity to discuss any particular issues or problems they may be experiencing. They will be asked what they hope to achieve from their session. The client will rest comfortably on a massage table on their back with their shoes removed.
A session can either be hands-on, where a light touch will be applied during the session, or hands-off where hands are held slightly above the body. If a client prefers not to be touched they can indicate this prior to start.
The session will then proceed with the movement through specific standard Reiki hand positions beginning at the person’s head or feet. You may feel a very slight tingling, heat, or energy, or nothing at all. The sensations or lack of are not a barometer of the Reiki, they are just how your particular body senses energy. Most people find the treatment very pleasant, relaxing and invigorating.
