What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. A Reiki Practitioner serves as a conduit for the energy to help clear and balance your body's energy as it promotes well-being through a therapeutic light touch.

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of holistic healing and self-improvement that everyone can use (even your pets).

How Reiki Works

Reiki works on the energetic level, meaning it works, not only on the physical level, as do most techniques in use today, but on all the energetic levels; physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. It is on one of these levels that the cause of the physical symptom exists and Reiki is able to work directly on that level.

Since energy is a normal, necessary component of all living things there is no intrusion on ones religious beliefs and no belief system required for energy to work.

Today Reiki has become a much sought-after healing art among patients and mainstream medical professionals because it has been proven that Reiki treatments help patients to heal faster with less pain or complications.

Who Can Benefit?

Anyone can benefit from Reiki. Reiki can be used for general wellness as well as for specific issues. Reiki works by assisting to reduce stress, which in turn may create an environment within your body where healing may more easily be facilitated. In my practice I have had great results with clients in working with problems related to excess tension build up and chronic pain. In addition to working with pain and tension problems, Reiki may be effective with people who suffer from chronic headaches, insomnia and problems of fatigue.

Reiki is sometimes used as an adjunct to certain medical conditions on the recommendation of a physician or other health care provider, (e.g., high blood pressure, anxiety or stress).

The immediate effects of a session can last several days. Receiving sessions on a regular basis will provide deeper and longer-lasting benefits. If you’re dealing with a specific issue, consider booking three sessions as a starting point. Acute conditions tend to balance faster than chronic ones.

What Might a Reiki Treatment Feel Like?

A treatment may feel like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you, the client may experience deep relaxation and a sense of peace and serenity. As the energy flows, most people will feel warmth, or heat, or tingling from the Practitioner's hands. It is usually a very relaxing experience: some people fall asleep. Other sensations may include seeing coloured lights or feeling as if you are floating. Sometimes people have an "emotional release" - feeling quite emotional or tearful for a little while during the treatment - as emotional turmoil is brought to the surface to be released and dissipated.
