What is Reiki?
Reiki is an energy based treatment. It works on the basis of regulating the body’s natural energy system (Chi / Ki / Prana) which is vital for full functioning health and well-being. Reiki works directly with the energy system, that is the major and minor Chakra energy centres and Meridian pathways within the body. Working directly with subtle energy bodies has a full holistic impact on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.
It will re-energise the system where energy is lacking, regulate the flow of energy where there may be over -activity or under-activity and clear any blockages. Ki energy can be impacted by physical, mental and emotional health problems, and vice versa. So it is a great treatment for addressing any chronic or acute health issues that may have impacted, or be caused by an imbalanced flow of Ki energy.
Reiki is a Japanese technique that can be great to get your system back into balance, promote your body’s natural healing ability and give you a surge of positive healing energy wherever that is needed - mind, body or soul.
What can I expect during my session?
During a treatment your experience is very much your own, and can vary from deep relaxation, sleep, hot/cold sensations in the body, tingling, emotional releases, relief from physical ailments, stress, anxiety and fatigue, renewed / reinvigorated feeling, some experience deep insights, visions and colours. All are common, and there are no predictable or “right” things to feel during a treatment, it largely depends on your current needs and health and where the healing and energy flow is needed the most. All experiences are unique to the individual and may change treatment to treatment depending on what you need at the time.
Your Reiki session will take place in a quiet and private treatment room. You remain fully clothed and can sit or lie comfortably for the session. The practitioner will explain the process and discuss any medical history.
Reiki is offered through light, non-invasive touch where the practitioner's hands are placed on, or just above, the physical body and held in a series of locations throughout the subtle energy bodies, Chakras and Meridians (from head to toe). Therapeutic music will be played during the session.
Depending on your current health, one treatment may be enough to bring you back into balance, or a course of a few treatments may be more suitable. Your therapist will discuss your requirements with you. The impact of relaxation tends to be cumulative so more than one session is often recommended.
