The word Reiki comes from 2 Japanese words – Rei which means”divine, luminosity of spirit, bright and clear” and -Ki which means “vital energy, invisible force, or prana”
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by a “laying of hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if its high , we are more capable of being healthy and happy.
Reiki is considered spiritually guided life force energy, and having a treatment of this wonderful healing modality can feel similar to a glowing radiance that flows through, in and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, mind, emotions, and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation, and feelings of peace, security and well being.
The Reiki system is comprised of techniques of transmitting this subtle energy to yourself or others through the hands , eyes or chakras into the human subtle energy system. Reiki restores energy balance and vitality by relieving the physical and emotional effects of unreleased stress. It gently and effectively opens blocked meridians, nadas and chakras and clears the energy bodies, leaving one feeling relaxed and at peace.
During the treatment the client remains fully clothed and the practitioner can touch the client in some areas with the clients permission (if needed), but its not necessary as the energy flows regardless. When I do a treatment on a client I like to touch the crown of their head as well as the hips, and feet, and the rest with my hands just above the area being treated. The clients will usually feel the same type of energy flow whether I’m touching them or not, as well as a noticable heat from the flow of energy coming from my hands. Sometimes the energy flow releases pent up emotions which can also provide a huge relief for the client. In some cases the Reiki treatment can be extended to a few days in a row by distance healing with the power of intention and it can create a healing crisis or detox reaction for the client in which they may feel slightly ill (flu or cold like) runny nose,chills etc.essentially a removal of toxins from the system.
Reiki can also be done on animals to help relieve stress and improve their overall health. Since learning Reiki my cat now tries to lay under my hands in the area I’m working on when I’m trying to do a treatment on myself :)….I have also seen amazing results on horses, and other animals. Basically every living being can benefit from a Reiki session.
Reiki can be a stand alone treatment, through distancework or incorporated into a massage treatment and my clients have had the following results :
release of headaches
release of stress and overall feeling of relaxation
removal of pain in certain areas of the body
overall sense of peace
