Helping you to get your life back
What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese word meaning Universal Life Energy, an energy which is all around us.This energy is known as 'chi' and in the healthy body and mind this natural force passes continuously following the meridian energy paths.
However, the flow of this energy can be disrupted by physical, emotional or psychological problems. It is the sole purpose of Reiki to aid the removal of any obstructions and return the body to a state of natural balance; a position from which it can start to heal itself.
Reiki treatment is a very simple process. The client may sit upright or lie on a couch whichever is most comfortable. There is no need to remove any clothing as Reiki will pass through anything, even plaster casts! The therapist gently places their hands, close to the body in a sequence of key positions around the entire body. In this way the whole person is treated rather than specific symptoms.
What can be treated with Reiki?
"Neuro-surgeon Clinton Miller prescribes Reiki for his patients and he is not alone. Many health-care professionals and others are beginning to incorporate Reiki in their treatment of illnesses ranging from Asthma, to cancer, to depression. Reiki sessions are being used for pain management, to accelerate recovery from surgery and reduce medication side effects." http://health.discovery.com/centers/womens/althealth/reiki_therapy.html
It is possible to heal at any level of being, physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. Reiki can increase the rate of healing and can be given anywhere at anytime as no special equipment is needed. The therapist is a channel through which the energy is drawn by the specific need of the client. It supports the body in its natural ability to heal itself helping to restore a state of balance. In this Reiki is an holistic process in which, as well as the enhanced healing of a specific area, a general feeling of well being is experienced by the client. This experience often goes beyond the physical and into the emotional and spiritual domains thus enabling the 'opening up' of the clients problems so that they too can subsequently and effectively be healed.
What is Reiki therapy like as an experience?
As with hypnotherapy Reiki is undertaken in a quiet and calm environment and is universally acknowledged as being a very pleasant, calming and relaxing experience. The most notable feature of the process itself is the heat that is generated between the clients body and the therapists hands. The healing effect of the process is accumulative from session to session but immediately it leads to a general feeling of deep relaxation which is induced within the client.
