What is Reiki energy healing?
The word Reiki is a combination of two Japanese words – Rei, which means God’s Wisdom or Higher Power, and “Ki,” which is life force energy. So Reiki is, by definition, spiritually guided life force energy. It is a simple technique used for stress reduction, relaxation, and healing.
While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. There is no need to have a shared belief, or believe in anything, to benefit from its restorative power. However, many who have experienced Reiki discover it awakens and deepens their sense of spiritual connection, life purpose, and well-being.
How does Reiki heal?
Energy is continuously flowing in, through and all around us in pathways and fields. When our energy is flowing freely, we have a sense of well-being and balance. We look good and we feel good. When our energy is disrupted, an imbalance in the condition of our system (our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health), occurs and we develop symptoms. We may have negative thoughts, feel stressed and anxious, have trouble sleeping, and develop physical pain.
Reiki corrects the imbalance in our energy by flowing through the affected areas or pathways and fields, forcing the release of negative energy and replacing it with healthy, positive, life-giving energy. Reiki awakens and restores our system, bringing our energy centers back into balance. We feel relaxed. We feel well. And we feel in harmony with creation.
What can I expect during a Reiki session?
For those seeking a Reiki treatment for the first time, we begin by discussing what Reiki is and how it works. We will also talk about your specific intention or purpose for the session, or if you are simply seeking relaxation and a feeling of general well-being.
You will lay on your back, fully clothed, on my treatment table. Reiki is administered by laying hands on or hovering above the body, whichever is most comfortable for you. During a session, you may notice a shift towards relaxation. Your breathing becomes slower and easier. You may feel a warm tingling sensation, experience a heightened awareness of your emotions, feel sleepy, or you may feel nothing in particular, except that afterwards, you have an enhanced feeling of relaxation and wellness. The experience varies from person to person.
A session typically takes about 60 minutes. Please allow yourself time to pause before and after the session for a richer experience.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement from which everyone can benefit. Reiki does not replace the need for regular physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual healthcare. However, when used in conjunction with these treatment methods, Reiki has been shown to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
