Reiki is a method of natural healing where the practitioner channels universal energy through their hands to the client. A Reiki session is a natural way to promote balance and harmony and stress relief. Treatment involves simply lying on a couch, the practitioner then places their hands in specific locations on the client’s body. Clients are treated fully clothed.
The experience of Reiki varies from one individual to another or even one session to the other as it is believed the healing energy will work on the areas that are most in need at that moment in time. Reiki energy has several basic properties. It brings deep relaxation, frees energy blockages and promotes energy and vitality. Healing is experienced on all levels - mind, body, emotions and spirit.
Those who use Reiki regularly often report feeling more joyful, more together, with a more positive approach to life along with increased energy levels, almost like their life battery has been recharged. Reiki is complementary to orthodox medicine; it is now used within the medical establishments such as hospices and rehabilitation wards. It is attributed to Dr. Mikao Usui a Japanese theologist who rediscovered the art of healing.
You do not have to believe in any religion or philosophy to benefit from a Reiki session, just a desire or readiness to be soothed and loved.
The essence of Reiki is love
