What is Reiki

Reiki Is: A universal energy and an ancient healing modality that has been handed down from person to person since the beginning of mankind.

It is different to other healing modalities in that it involves attunements which open the student directly to the energy and to the special lineage that is The Usui System of Natural Healing.

It is not a sect or a cult nor is it associated with any belief system. It does not belong to any country, organisation or person.

Reiki practitioners do not diagnose and is used in conjunction with modern medicine. In the Japanese language Reiki loosely translates to Universal Life Force.

Reiki is also a personal journey of growth for the student and practitioner. You are able to look within your self and examine just what makes you you. It is from this inner journey that the true journey through life begins.

Having a Reiki Treatment

In a standard treatment Reiki energy flows from the practitioners hands into the client. The client is usually laying on a massage table but treatments can also be given while the client is seated or even standing.

The client remains fully clothed. The practitioner places her/his hands on or near the clients body in a series of hand positions. These include positions around the head and shoulders, the stomach, and feet. Other, more specific positions may be used based on the clients needs. Each position is held for three to ten minutes depending on how much Reiki the client needs at each position.

Experiences during a Reiki treatment varies somewhat from person to person. However, feelings of deep relaxation are usually felt by all. In addition, many feel a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and surrounds them. As the Reiki energy encourages you to let go of all tension, anxiety, fear or other negative feelings a state of peace and well-being is experienced. Some even drift off to sleep. At the end of the treatment, you usually feel refreshed with a more positive, balanced outlook.

The whole treatment usually lasts between 45 and 90 minutes.
