What is Reiki?
Reiki is an ancient system of natural, non-invasive, holistic healing. Universal, life-giving energy is passed from the practitioner to the client through the laying on of hands. The origin of Reiki healing predates recorded history. It has been passed down from master to apprentice in India, Tibet, China and Japan for at least 5,000 years. For a time, in the chaotic oriental world of the second millennium C.E, the symbols and practices of Reiki healing were lost. About 100 years ago, Dr. Mikao Usui rediscovered the ancient Reiki symbols and reunited them with traditional healing techniques to re-introduce Reiki to mankind. Practitioners use the ancient healing symbols that Dr. Usui rediscovered in his enlightenment. These sacred symbols empower the Reiki practitioner to accept, focus and utilize universal energy to re-balance and heal a client’s body, mind, emotions and spirit.
What can Reiki do for me?
A Reiki treatment clarifies, focuses, increases and re-balances the energy in your body. It opens and clears your chakras and energy meridians and helps to balance and cleanse your aura. It strengthens your immune system, improves your circulation, detoxifies your body and reduces tension so that your body can more efficiently heal itself. Reiki has a proven record of accelerating healing. It reduces the stress of working in toxic environments (and with negative people). Reiki improves the functioning of the immune system to resist illness, infection and dis-ease. Reiki soothes emotional turmoil and stress, and it can give new perspective to help solve problems and confrontations in relationships. Reiki is a proven stand alone healing modality and an effective supplement to other holistic healing techniques.
What is a Reiki treatment like?
A Reiki treatment usually lasts a half-hour to an hour. The client may be seated or lying down. The client remains fully clothed at all times. The practitioner places his or her hands on the client’s body (with permission) or slightly off the surface of the skin. Clients usually relax completely and often go into a light sleep or trance. The experience is different for everyone. Many clients report feeling the warmth and energy of the practitioner’s hands, feeling sensations of warmth, tingling, or flowing energy, seeing various colors and even hearing soothing sounds. They often report feeling great physical, mental and/or emotional relief. It is important to share your wellness history and your current personal healing goals with your practitioner.
