What is Reiki?
Reiki is a natural and safe Japanese healing technique that works through reducing stress and promoting relaxation. The word Reiki means “Universal Life Energy”. The idea behind this technique is that unseen energies flow through our bodies keeping them in working order. If the energy levels are low, the body responds with sickness or being stressed. Reiki is the transfer of energy from the practitioner to the patient or client without depleting the practitioner’s resources. It is also possible give a Reiki treatment to oneself. Reiki doesn’t have to be hands-on; it can also be given over a distance.
What does a Reiki treatment look like?
In a regular Reiki session, which lasts usually about an hour, the practitioner places their hands on or above the body of the recipient who remains fully clothed. There is no kind of physical manipulation. The energy of the practitioner flows through the hands into the recipient’s body which draws only as much energy as it needs and directs the energy to where it is needed. This enhances the body’s ability to heal itself.
Each person experiences Reiki differently. Sensations can include the feeling of warmth, tingling, deep relaxation, calmness, peaceful sense of wellbeing and many others. Some people report an emotional reaction while others don’t really feel anything.
