The tradition of Reiki was founded by Mikao Usui in the early 20th century and evolved as a result of his research, experience and dedication.
We live in a world of energy that nourishes and maintains all living things. When this energy flows uninterrupted there is balance and harmony within and around us, and we experience a sense of well being.
Treatments can help the body emotionally or spiritually. It is a tradition that is open to any belief system.
Treatment is a process that anyone can enjoy in the normal course of their life, and can be used alongside other conventional or complementary treatment and often helps to provide emotional support during recovery.
The method of receiving Reiki is simple. The recipient remains clothed and lies on a couch or sits on a chair and relaxes. The practitioner gently places their hands in a series of non-intrusive positions on or near the body. There is no massage or manipulation. The whole person is treated rather than specific areas. Sessions can take upto an hour, depending on the clients needs.
WHAT DOES REIKI TREATMENT FEEL LIKE?
Each person experiences are different.
Clients may or may not feel sensations during a treatment. The benefits reported by recipients include deep relaxation promoting a calm, peaceful sense of well being on all levels. Some people feel sensations of heat, tingling, or experience seeing colours, whilst others can have an emotional response, indicating that shifts are taking place, allowing harmony to be restored.
WHAT DOES REIKI TREATMENT DO?
Treatments are safe and soothing and can be:
- Comforting when life is tough
- Supportive during pregnancy
- Calming for children
- Helpful at the end of life
HOW MUCH REIKI WOULD I NEED
A single session may be sufficient, but it is best to discuss this with your practitioner. For instance, if you have long standing emotional or spiritual issues, a series of sessions may be beneficial. In general if you find that helpful changes are taking place, it is a good idea to continue treatment.
