“Rei” means Universal and “Ki” means Life Force. Reiki is an ancient energy-based therapy with origins in Japan and Tibet. It is described as the “laying on of hands”.
Reiki is non-invasive and the Reiki practitioner is described as a conduit between the Universal Life Force (or Universal Energy) and the client receiving the treatment. Reiki does not conflict with other methods of health care. Instead, it will enhance the results and assist in the healing process. We all have Reiki energy flowing through us. In fact every living being has Reiki energy. It is when this life force is not able to flow freely that we are susceptible to illness and/or disease.
Benefits of Reiki:
- Functions on all levels - mental, spiritual, physical and
- Supports the body's natural ability to heal itself
- Balances the body's energies
- Loosens up blocked energy and promotes state of total
relaxation and alleviation of stress
What can I expect during a Reiki Session?
There is no right or wrong way to experience Reiki. Everybody
has their own healing experience. You simply lie down fully
clothed on a massage table and the practioneer will gentle lay
hands on your body in various positions. You may experience heat
or cold coming from the practioneer's hands. Some people
experience a tingling sensation, feel very relaxed or fall asleep.
The healing journey is yours and what you experience is what
your body mind and spirit needs.
