Simply put...Reiki is life force energy, but what does that mean?
Reiki was discovered in Japan by Mikao Usui and it means Universal Energy. A powerful yet gentle energy treatment where energy is channelled through the practitioner's hands to the recipient.
Everything in the Universe is made up of energy - science has now proven this through quantum physics.
Human beings are made up of energy, each person vibrating at their own individual level. So if we are energy it makes sense that we can send out and receive energy.
Reiki helps your body return to a state of relaxation, which in turn allows it to heal itself from damage brought on by stress, injury, or disease.
Reiki therapy is a way of guiding energy throughout the body to promote the recipient’s self-healing abilities.
The body is always trying to heal itself. By helping a person experience deep relaxation, Reiki enhances and accelerates our own natural healing process, because the body can stop being stressed and focus on healing.
Reiki sessions deliver a deeply relaxing experience and is unique to each individual. Energy passes through the practitioner's hands to places within the physical body, energetic bodies (aura) and energy centres (chakras).
It has its own 'knowing' compass - finding its way to exactly where the healing is needed. It is also a simple way to stop energy loss and replenish energy in a loving way. When your energy is depleted, Reiki will restore the feelings of good health, happiness and general well-being.
Reiki healing occurs on all levels...
Reiki is a complementary therapy and can be integrated with other physical healing/treatments or modalities to promote total body mind and spirit healing.
Reiki is not massage and the client is fully clothed during their treatment.
