Reiki is an ancient method of healing by attunement to Universal Energy and there is no belief system attached to it so it is available to everyone. It originated in Tibet but evolved in the 19th century into the healing technique we know now, from the experience of Dr Mikao Usui, a Japanese monk.
Reiki is a very gentle, relaxing, grounding and balancing healing technique. Everyone has energy around and within and if this energy is depleted, an individual is more likely to get sick or feel stressed. Reiki is a completely natural and soothing treatment and as energy flows from practitioner to client, tension is released, promoting relaxation and healing. As well as balancing energy, it can help to relax and reduce stress, boost the immune system and promote a calm, peaceful sense of well being. It can be used by people of all ages from newborn babies to the frail and elderly and in any situation.
As a complementary therapy, Reiki works effectively alongside orthodox healthcare and natural remedies, expanding treatment options. Reiki is being used in various settings including private practice, complementary therapy centres, GP surgeries, hospitals, hospices, cancer support groups, post-operative recovery, drug rehabilitation, prisons, HIV/AIDS centres, and in the care of the elderly. https://www.reikifed.co.uk/reiki-faqs
What happens during a Reiki session?
On your first visit, I will ask you questions about your medical history and current health before beginning the treatment. You remain fully clothed and can lie down on the large treatment couch or sit in a chair depending on where you feel most comfortable. I will generally place my hands above or below your body but sometimes may be drawn to place my hands on certain areas such as your head, feet, knees or shoulders but I will always gain permission from you before your treatment commences.
You may feel warm, you may see colours or feel other sensations, you may feel nothing at all but all of my clients feel a sense of deep relaxation during their treatment. Most treatments last between 45 and 60 minutes.
