Reiki is a Japanese word, which is roughly translated as the “free passage of universal life force”.
Reiki is performed by the practitioner placing their hands on or near the client’s body. This can either be where the client is reporting feelings of dis-ease or over certain chakra points (there are 7 main chakras in our bodies). Sometimes the Reiki energy will give the practitioner guidance as to where their hands should be placed.
A Reiki practitioner has been attuned to the universal energies and is used as a channel to bring those energies to the client. Reiki energy will go where it is needed within the body and will only ever do good things for a client.
Reiki is used as a holistic treatment, it can bring benefits to your physical body, your emotional wellbeing, your mental health and also on a spiritual level. It can be useful for balancing chakras and healing, or cleansing, auras.
Clients report many different things during a Reiki session, including feeling very relaxed, feeling heat or tingling as the energy works, seeing colours or images, receiving guidance or messages and feeling energized and refreshed afterwards. However, Reiki is experienced differently by every person, so there is no right or wrong feeling.
It can feel very powerful, whilst being a very gentle treatment. The client does not need to undress to receive Reiki, however it is recommended to remove shoes and jewellery.
Reiki treatments can also be sent via distant healing, meaning you do not have to be physically present to receive the energies. If this is something that interests you, then please contact me for further information.
