We live in a world of energy that nourishes and maintains all living things. When this energy flows uninterrupted there is balance and harmony within and around us, and we experience a sense of well being.
There are many variations of Reiki, but in essence Reiki treatments can help the body emotionally or spiritually. It is a tradition that is open to any belief system.
Reiki treatment is a process that anyone can enjoy in the normal course of their life.
Reiki can be used alongside other conventional or complementary treatment and often helps to provide emotional support during recovery.
The practice is taught by Reiki masters / teachers who have trained in the tradition passed on in person from master to student.
I use Reiki to relax and strengthen client's wellbeing; reduce pain, anxiety, and fatigue; help manage symptoms; reduce side effects of medications; and support recovery after injuries or surgery.
My client has the option to either lie down or sit up on my therapy couch, whichever's more comfortable. I begin to scan the full length of the body by placing my hands above the body (I will always ask the client first before I place my hands on the affected area).
I discover which area requires treatment when my hands feel a cold sensation. When the healing process is beginning, you may experience a tingling sensation or warmth from my hands. Reiki may also evoke deep emotions, this happens when the emotions are released. Within the next 24 hours you may experience symptoms such as tiredness, headache or heightened emotions. This is just your body's way of releasing the toxins to make way for renewed energy.
Reiki is a good integrative therapy to try because people generally start feeling better very quickly with Reiki. As anxiety and pain lessen, and people feel hopeful about regaining their health, they feel more able to incorporate other needed health interventions or make needed lifestyle changes.
Reiki therapy often clears the mind, enabling patients to better evaluate the sometimes conflicting medical information being offered by various specialists, so they can make important treatment decisions with greater confidence. In this way, Reiki can help people become more actively involved in their own health.
