Reiki is a form of natural healing. The word Reiki means “universal life energy” and when activated and used for the purposes of healing addresses mind, body and spirit. Reiki is widely used throughout the world to promote health and personal development.
Reiki is a safe, natural therapy that promotes healing at all levels by the action of gentle nurturing energy radiating from the Reiki practitioner’s hands. Reiki works by harmonising the mind and emotions and accelerating the healing in the physical body. Through its balancing and strengthening powers Reiki promotes the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Reiki can also increase the intuitive and creative abilities. Chakra balancing is sometimes incorporated into the standard treatment.
Reiki can be used for any illness, on people of any age with absolute safety. It can be combined with other healing practices to accelerate the healing process. A Reiki treatment consists of the practitioner placing their hands on the recipient’s body in a pattern designed to give overall balance. The practitioner simply acts as a channel for this healing energy. During a treatment the recipient remains fully clothed at all times.
Each session may cause a totally different reaction dependent on what the person needs at that particular time. The most common experience is one of deep relaxation.
Reiki is particularly useful for emotional and mental distress or when the patient is particularly frail and only wants a gentle therapeutic treatment.
Reiki can also be performed remotely through distant healing techniques.
