REIKI IS A VERY GENTLE THERAPY
Rei - pronounced Ray. Ki - pronounced Key
Reiki is a gentle natural healing system using the Universal life force energy which is all around us. ALL LIVING THINGS HAVE THIS LIFE FORCE ENERGY INCLUDING PLANTS. Reiki has evolved as an energy medicine which can be understood through advanced physics principles. Life force energy flows through every one of us, if our life force energy is low we are more likely to feel stressed or become ill. If our life force energy is high and free flowing we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
The system of Reiki evolved in Japan through the dedication and experience of Dr Mikao Usui, who learned from ancient teachers and devoted his life to study, research, meditation and the practice and teaching of Reiki
Today Reiki continues to be taught by Reiki Masters who have trained in the tradition passed down from master to student. THERE IS NO BELIEF SYSTEM INVOLVED WITH REIKI AND IT IS NOT ATTACHED TO RELIGION.
Anyone can receive or learn to give a Reiki treatment. The only prerequisite is the desire to be healed. You do not even have to believe in Reiki to benefit from it, and you do not have to have anything "wrong" with you to benefit.
SO, WHAT HAPPENS IN A TREATMENT ? - At the first treatment a client consultation is carried out to provide the therapist with some background information on the client, including any illness. It is also established what the client hopes to gain from their Reiki experience. The recipient lies on a couch fully clothed and relaxes (the treatment can be given in a seated position if unable to lie down). The main requirement is for the recipient to be as comfortable as possible.
The therapist will then hold their hands lightly on various positions on and around the head. The therapist may hold their hands off the body and gently move their hands across the top of the aura scanning the whole body for blockages in energy.
The therapist works with her intuition being drawn to areas where Reiki is required.
Reiki has a similar effect on the body and mind as meditation.
Many Reiki practitioners believe 1 hour of Reiki can be the equivalent of 3-4 hours deep relaxing sleep.
Reiki can be effectively used as a release of stress and promotion of relaxation, and can restore vital energy lost in daily life. Reiki promotes health, healing, balance and wholeness. It is a creative energy useful for preventing imbalance and re-enforces the body's ability to heal itself.
Regular Reiki promotes personal and spiritual growth, expands human consciousness and can stimulate intuitive, spiritual and creative awareness.
Reiki can do no harm and works in the best interest and for the positive benefits of the person receiving it
