WHAT IS REIKI?
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation. It promotes the natural healing abilities of the body.
It is performed by the "laying on hands" of a Reiki practitioner who transfers "life force energy" (also known as Chi, Ki or Prana) to the receiver.
Chi flows through all of living things. If there's blocks or obstructions to a healthy flow of Chi through the body, we'll experience mental, emotional or physical dis-ease.
William Lee Rand, founder of the International Center for Reiki Training describes Reiki as follows:
"Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery."
Reiki also heals by releasing negative thought patterns and emotions.
HOW DOES REIKI WORK?
Reiki reduces stress and promotes healing by relaxing the body, calming the mind and balancing the flow of Chi through the body. It helps release mental, emotional and physical blocks supporting personal growth and wellbeing.
HOW IS A REIKI TREATMENT ADMINISTERED?
Reiki energy flows from the Reiki practitioner’s hands into the recipient's body and energy field.
The recipient lays fully clothed on a massage table. This ensures optimal posture for the flow of the healing energy through the body. Chair and/or standing treatments can also be administered.
The practitioner places her/his hands on (or hovering above) the body in a series of hand positions for a few minutes at a time. These include positions around the head and shoulders, the heart, torso, feet and other specific areas according to the recipient's needs. The length of time spent at each position also depends on the individual healing needs.
A standard Reiki treatment usually lasts between 30 to 45 minutes.
