Reiki, pronounced Ray-Key, is a Japanese word meaning the Universal Life Energy, the energy which is all around and in us. Reiki is a vibrational energy technique used for improving health by balancing our body's system. It is a holistic therapy which harmonizes body, mind and spirit and accelerates the body's natural ability to heal physical and emotional ailments.
Human touch conveys warmth, serenity, and healing as well as caring and love. When you hurt yourself, your first response is to put your hand over the wounded area. When a child hurts themself, the mother's first response is to hug them and cover the hurt with their hand, and of course kiss the tears away. This is the basis of all forms of hands on healing.
AND MUCH MORE!
Reiki is well suited to our modern day lifestyle as it gives us a fast path to well-being and personal development. Reiki, in short, is natural and non-intrusive since no diagnosis, medicines, aides, or devices are used
Recent studies have shown that approximately 80% of all medical treatment sought, are for stress related problems.
Reiki is the perfect compliment to traditional medicine's treatments and yet also works well on its own for relaxation, stress relief and pain management.
To understand how Reiki works, you first have to understand that each and every one of us has a life force energy flowing through us. This energy vibrates around each organ and cell in our bodies. However, when the vibrations are blocked or not flowing easily, this causes our cells and organs to function at a lower level which allows disease and illness to form.
When we allow negative thoughts, either conscious or unconcious to enter our minds, they create a disruption in the vibrations of our energy.
Reiki helps our bodies heal by flowing through the trouble spots and charging the area with positive energy. During a Reiki session, negative energy attached to a troubled area is released, clearing our energy pathways of negative blockages and helping them to straighten and heal so the Life Force Energy can flow as it should in a positive way. By using Reiki to release the negative energy blocks, traditional medicine treatments from your doctor can work faster and more effectively.
While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion.
Reiki sessions are done fully clothed. The practitioner gently places their hands on the client's body guiding the body's flow of energy, removing blockages which contribute to pain and illness, both physical and emotional. For those who prefer, the practitioner's hands may be held a few inches above the body with the same results.
