Reiki is a Japanese technique which reduces stress and aids relaxation which then also promotes healing of the mind and body. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery. It does not mean than you do not take prescribed medication but take along side Reiki.
While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. There is nothing you must believe in order to learn and use Reiki. Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether you believe in a particular religion or not.
A full treatment takes an hour, not including a consultation. It is the most relaxing treatment you could have, an hour of lying on a couch in a warm. dimly lit room, listening to quiet, relaxing music. Indulgence for you and only you.
