Reiki is a Japanese 'laying on hands' technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is a simple but powerful technique. Reiki which comes from two Japanese words 'Rei' (universal) and 'Ki' (energy) originated in Tibet thousands of years ago and was 'rediscovered' in the 20th century by a Japanese Buddhist, Mikao Usui.
Life energy, sometimes known as 'vital life force' is something that we are given at birth, it not only animates our body but influences emotions, thoughts and spiritual life. Throughout our lives, certain things can affect our 'life energy', for example, our lifestyles (occupation, diet, exercise), life events (marriage, separation, bereavement, childbirth etc.). When our flow of Ki is disrupted in this way, it causes diminished functioning within one or more of the organs and tissues of the physical body, therefore, it is the disruption in the flow of Ki that is the main cause of the illness.
When a person receives a Reiki treatment, the healing energy will assess where the blockages are in that person's energy pathways (chakras, meridians) and energy field (aura) and work at releasing those blockages and healing the sites so that healthy Ki can flow in a natural way.
CAN ANYONE HAVE REIKI?
Reiki is suitable for most people, whatever their age, but there are certain conditions which the Therapist needs to be aware of and they may have to adapt the treatment accordingly. Before a Reiki session a very thorough consultation is carried out whereby the Therapist will note down the medical history, medication, lifestyle etc. Your records will be kept for future treatments.
