Reiki is a Japanese technique which, simply put, aims to provide stress reduction and relaxation and may also promote healing.
"REI" loosely translated from the Japanese means unseen or spiritual
"KI" relates to Chi - the energy within all living things
A Reiki practitioner is a person who has been 'attuned' to Reiki and can act as a conduit for Reiki energy.
During a general Reiki treatment the practitioner will place their hands on or above the person's body and 'channel' Reiki energy. The recipient will remain fully clothed and in order to gain the maximum benefit, would be lying on a couch, initially on their back. The recipient may feel sensations in their body such as tingling, heat, cold and/or they may notice the practitioner's hands may feel very warm or even quite hot!
The practitioner will work their way around the body starting at the head and working towards the feet, then the recipient will be asked to turn on to their front so the treatment can be repeated.
Reiki can also be performed with the recipient seated or lying on the floor.
Potential benefits that may be obtained through receiving a course of Reiki treatments include:
- Deep relaxation
- Reduced tension & anxiety
- Boosted energy levels
- A feeling of inner calm, contentment and serenity
- Feeling more positive, confident and better able to cope
- Dealing better with stressful people and situations
- Creates balance, harmony, clarity and focus
- Encourages self-love and compassion towards others
- Leads to a better quality of life for many people
- Brings a sense of purpose
