Reiki is a Japanese word meaning universal life energy and was rediscovered in 20th century Japan by Buddhist Sensei Dr. Mikao Usui.
Reiki is the life energy that flows through all living things. Reiki practitioners understand that everyone has the ability to connect with their own healing energy and use it to strengthen energy in themselves and help others. It is believed that a person’s “ki” or energy should be strong and free flowing. When this is true a person’s body and mind is in a positive state of health. When the energy becomes weak or blocked it could lead to symptoms of physical or emotional imbalance.
A Reiki session can help ease tension and stress and can help support the body to facilitate an environment for healing on all levels; physical, mental, and emotional. A session is pleasant and relaxing and is often utilized for one’s personal wellness.
A Typical Session:
A session is usually 30 to 60 minutes long. A discussion will usually take place during an initial session with a Reiki practitioner. They will describe the session to the client, give the client an opportunity to discuss any particular problems or issues they are experiencing and ask them what they are hoping to achieve from their session. For the actual session, the client will rest comfortably on a massage table on their back with their shoes removed. Reiki can be performed with the client sitting comfortably in a chair as well. Unlike massage therapy, the client is always fully clothed. Loose, comfortable clothing is suggested. A session can either be hands-on, where a practitioner will apply a light touch during the session, or hands-off where they will hold their hands slightly above your body. If a client prefers not to be touched, they can indicate this to the practitioner before they begin. The session will then proceed with the Reiki practitioner moving through specific standard Reiki hand positions beginning at the person’s head or feet. A recipient of Reiki might feel a warming sensation or a tingling during the session or nothing at all but sheer relaxation. The session should be very pleasant, relaxing and invigorating.
WHAT IS IT USED TO TREAT?
Reiki is a great tool for stress reduction and relaxation. Many people use Reiki for wellness. Reiki is not a cure for a disease or illness, but it may assist the body in creating an environment to facilitate healing. Reiki is a great tool to use as a compliment to traditional medicine and is practiced in many hospitals and medical care settings.
