Reiki is a deeply relaxing energy healing treatment developed by Dr Mikao Usui who lived in Japan between 1865 and 1926.
As a Reiki Master Teacher, I understand that there may be some confusion around what Reiki is and how it works. So let me share my personal experience and knowledge to answer some of the common questions people have about Reiki.
When I first heard about Reiki over 20 years ago, I was sceptical. I had never heard of energy healing before and was unsure how it worked. But after experiencing a Reiki session myself, I felt an incredible sense of peace and relaxation. Reiki is a gentle and non-invasive form of energy healing that works to balance the body, mind, and spirit.
Reiki practitioners use their hands to channel energy into the recipient's body. This energy helps to remove blockages and restore balance to the body's energy centres, known as chakras. The practitioner acts as a conduit for the universal life force energy, and this energy flows into the recipient's body to help promote healing.
During a Reiki session, you will lie down on a massage table or sit in a comfortable chair while the practitioner places their hands on or near your body. I have a comfortable single bed in my treatment room to help you fully relax. You may feel a warm or tingling sensation, you may see colours, or you may simply feel deeply relaxed. The session is typically very peaceful and calming, and you may even fall asleep.
Reiki can help to reduce stress and anxiety, promote relaxation, and boost the immune system. It can also help to alleviate pain and promote healing after an injury or surgery. Reiki is not a substitute for traditional medical treatment, but it can be a valuable complementary therapy.
Reiki is generally considered safe for people of all ages, including pregnant women and children. It is also wonderful for animals and sessions can be done distantly anywhere in the world with the same results as energy is not limited by physical space or time. It can even be used on your home to help remove detrimental energies.
The number of Reiki sessions you need will depend on your individual needs and goals. Some people may feel immediate benefits after one session, while others may need multiple sessions to achieve their desired outcomes.
