What is Reiki?
Reiki is Japanese for ‘Universal life energy’ and is a holisitic healing technique founded by Mikao Usui in the early 20th century.
We live in a world where everything is made up of energy, including us! When our energy is able to flow freely we experience a sense of peace and well-being. However, sometimes energy can become stuck or blocked and may manifest as any number of physical or emotional issues. Reiki can help to release and remove those block and help restore the energy flow.
Anyone can enjoy a Reiki treatment and it can be used alongside any conventional or complementary therapy. During a treatment, you remain fully clothed, either lying down or in a comfortable seated position allowing you to relax. The practitioner gently places their hands in a sequence of non-intrusive positions on the body, letting the healing Reiki energy flow through them into the recipient. The body is treated as a whole and Reiki will naturally flow to where it is needed. Everyone experiences Reiki differently, depending on their needs at the time.
5 Benefits of Reiki
1. Promotes harmony & balance
Through the energy transfer, the body is able to restore balance across all systems of the mind, body, and spirit. This creates harmony and allows you to continue in a positive lifestyle.
2. Relaxes & releases tension from the body
The energy transfer through Reiki may make you feel peaceful, relaxed, and lighter which allows you to be in touch with your inner self and reflect clearly on your life.
3. Breaks down energy blocks
When energy pathways are blocked, positive energy cannot flow to certain parts of the body, which results in mood swings, fear, anger, pain, and more. Reiki can help keep these pathways clear.
4. Helps you sleep better
This kind of relaxation helps our bodies to sleep better, to heal better, and to think more clearly.
5. Accelerates the body’s self-healing abilities
Reiki balances your internal body levels to return to a near-natural state, so that your breathing, heart rate, blood pressure, circulation, and other bodily systems can improve. This normal balance will allow your body to heal itself from within.
