What is Reiki?
Reiki is a tremendously powerful holistic healing system that can help someone to deal with problems of any kind, whether physical, mental, emotional or spiritual and often succeeds where other treatments have failed. Reiki is safe to use anytime and anywhere.
So who can benefit from Reiki?
The answer is anyone, It can be given to adults, children. Babies even whilst in the mother womb. Family pets and plants can also benefit.
What happens in a Reiki session?
A Reiki treatment will normally last about an hour. The Reiki treatment is carried out fully clothed, as Reiki channels through to the person’s energy field with or without obstruction.
The therapist will stand behind you and place their hands on you, starting at your head; this will last for several minutes at a time. There are various positions on your face, head and shoulders. Depending on the length of the treatment, they will then move position and lay their hands on your torso (avoiding any private areas), and then move on to the feet.
What you feel may differ from person to person, you may feel heat, sometimes, Reiki can also be experienced as quite cold, emanating from the therapist’s hands. Both theses feeling are noticeably different to someone simply having cold or hot hands. Most often during a treatment the energy is experienced as warmth. Others feel a mild tingle, throbbing, or pulsing sensation. A Reiki treatment is a spiritual practice because it works directly with energy or “spirit.” There is no pressure applied.
A Reiki session may sometimes bring up emotions or memories of experiences from your past, some of which you may have forgotten about. This is part of the Reiki healing process and is there to allow you to release and grow. We are only reminded of these feelings and events because we are strong enough and ready to face them again.
For Reiki to work, it is not necessary for you to feel the energy. The energy goes where it is needed and will work on whatever energy level is needed. Reiki heals on your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels to bring harmony and balance into your life.
Some people may fall asleep during a Reiki treatment, or they may feel the effects a couple of days later when things start to change and fall into place.
