What is reiki?  How does it heal?


Reiki is a form of hands on healing that activates the mind and body's natural healing response. Everyone experience’s Reiki as deeply relaxing, it creates a safe, warm, comforting feeling and the mind goes into an alpha brain wave state which helps to slow your thoughts, relieve pain and create relaxation in the body. Reiki energy is very powerful yet gentle, safe and nurturing at the same time. Because Reiki works on a causal level to activate the bodies own natural healing system it creates balance, health and well-being on all levels. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use.

As well as being a very enjoyable and deeply relaxing and restorative treatment for anyone, Reiki allows deep mental, emotional and physical healing to take place while feeling safe and relaxed. Because of this mental and emotional traumas can be healed gently without any need for verbalization or re-traumatization. The Reiki energy adapts to the needs of each individual client for optimal restorative and re-balancing value.

Reiki supports any medical, or supplemental healing methods a client may be using and is of growing interest to chiropractors, medical doctors, physiotherapists, psychotherapists, psychologists and hypnotherapists.

Anyone can learn to tap into an unlimited supply of 'life force energy' to improve health and enhance the quality of life by learning Reiki, or by receiving treatments from a Reiki Practitioner or Master

What does a Reiki treatment feel like?

A treatment feels like warm, gentle sunshine which flows through you, surrounds you and comforts you. Reiki treats the person’s body, emotions, mind and spirit as a whole.  During a treatment, the clients remains fully clothed while laying on a massage couch, the treatment can be carried out through gentle touch on points of the body or without touch by working on the auric energy fileds of the client. Gentle music is played to aid relaxation. Clients may experience warmth, coolness and/or tingling during the treatment, this is a positive indicator of where the client is absorbing the healing during the session.

How does Reiki work?

Our body is composed not only of physical elements such as muscles, bones, nerves, arteries, organs, glands, etc.; it also has a subtle energy system through which 'life force energy' flows. This subtle energy system is composed of energy 'bodies' which surround our physical body and assist us in processing our thoughts and emotions. The energy bodies have energy centers called chakras, which work somewhat like valves that allow life force to circulate through the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies. We also have energy meridians and nadas. These are like rivers, or streams which carry our life force energy throughout our physical body, to nourish us and assist in balancing our body’s systems and functions.

Our physical body is alive because of the 'life force energy' that is flowing though it. If our 'life force' is low or blocked, we are more likely to get sick, but if it is high and free flowing, we more easily maintain health and a feeling of well-being. One thing that disrupts and weakens the flow of 'life force energy' is stress. Stress is often caused by conflicting thoughts and feelings that get lodged in one's subtle energy system. These include fear, worry, doubt, anger, anxiety, etc. Medical research has determined that continual stress can block the body's natural ability to repair, regenerate and protect itself. The American Institute of Stress estimates that 75%-95% of all visits to doctors are the results of reaction to stress. The effects of unreleased stress range from minor aches to major health concerns, such as heart disease, digestive disorders, respiratory and skin problems.

Reiki (ray-key) is a technique that aids the body in releasing stress and tension by creating deep relaxation. Because of this, Reiki promotes healing and health. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "the Wisdom of God or the Higher Power" and Ki which is means 'life force energy.' So Reiki means 'spiritually guided life force energy.' The Reiki system of healing is a technique for transmitting this subtle energy to yourself and others through the hands into the human energy system. Reiki restores energy balance and vitality by relieving the physical and emotional effects of unreleased stress. It gently and effectively opens blocked meridians, nadas and chakras, and clears the energy bodies, leaving one feeling relaxed and at peace.
