What is Reiki?
Reiki is a safe, gentle healing technique which is used for promoting general wellbeing, and treating physical & emotional ailments. It is a simple yet profound system of energy healing that accelerates our own natural healing capacity.
Reiki has helped me in my own personal growth work, moving me from being "stuck" into a strong sense of clarity and purpose. It is also useful during periods of stress and anxiety - facilitating deep relaxation and giving us a break from the daily worries, concerns, and distractions. Blocks literally dissolve and we gain insight into our actions & thought patterns.
Reiki is often used to compliment medical and therapeutic treatments. Cancer patients sometimes find that it diminishes the ill effects of chemotherapy. Surgical patients use Reiki to shorten the healing process and reduce pain.
Reiki, pronounced "Ray-Kee", is a Japanese word, meaning "Universal Life-Force Energy."
Rei translates as "wisdom or knowledge of the universe," meaning a Higher Intelligence that guides the functioning of the universe.
Ki is the Japanese word for "life-force energy" which flows through every living thing - people, animals, & plants - as well as being present is all that is around us.
What does Reiki feel like?
Reiki is normally performed using a gentle touch by the practitioner, or with the hands just above the body. The client remains fully clothed for Reiki sessions. This type of healing work is extremely relaxing, allowing your body to rest deeply, rejuvenate and heal according to the body's own wisdom.
Reiki often allows you to go into a deep peaceful meditation with very little effort. This experience is sometimes more relaxing than a massage, as well as a nice compliment to massage work. A person may sense muscle tension releasing and melting away. Pain and other symptoms may diminish considerably. Sometimes our emotional armor relaxes, bringing tears to the surface. Everything works in concert so that by the end of the session, Reiki leaves you feeling calm, centered, and clear.
Distance Reiki Sessions
A distance Reiki session is one where the practitioner sends Reiki remotely to the client. This kind of session is just as effective as being there in-person. We set up an appointment time for the Reiki treatment sometimes beginning on the phone with a guided meditation. It is helpful for the client to be in a quiet space during this time, but it isn't necessary.
This kind of session is just as effective as being there in person. Distance Reiki is helpful for those who aren't able to leave their homes.
