Receiving a Reiki treatment from a practitioner is simple. The recipient remains clothed and comfortably lies on a couch or sits on a chair. The practitioner gently places their hands non- intrusively, on or near the body using their intuition and training as a guide. There is no massage or manipulation. Reiki can be used on the person as a whole, or on specific parts of the body. Reiki treatments last for between 30 - 90 minutes although shorter times are possible. Reiki is hands on healing: Ki or universal energy is transmitted by simply placing your hands on a client or receiver. Reiki can heal your life: Reiki stimulates your body’s innate healing abilities and affects physical ailments. Reiki can also work at the root of many problems, whether physical, mental, or emotional. Japanese traditional medicine (acupuncture etc) uses a ‘root and branch’ philosophy, it is pointless simply treating the symptom without treating the underlying cause.
Reiki is an aid to relaxation and stress management, it balances body and mind and aids in meditation. Reiki starts a detoxification process in the body, helping to release both physical and emotional toxins we take in every day. Reiki increases your intuitive sense of ‘self’ and helps you to become more aware of your life’s path and purpose. Reiki is a spiritual path but not a religion. It is a tool that works with whatever religious or spiritual path you have chosen to follow re-establishing your connection with the Universe and with the power and tranquillity that exists within you. Reiki will change your life!
Illness can be a time of great stress and so Reiki can help us cope by encouraging relaxation and bringing balance to both mind and emotions.
