Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of relaxation, stress reduction, and improving one's overall health and wellbeing.
Reiki is deeply balancing and nourishing on every level - physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Reiki releases blocked energy and re-establishes it's natural flow throughout the system encouraging the body's own natural healing processes.
Typically a treatment consists of the practitioner holding their hands lightly on or above the recipient, however it is also just as effective offered from a distance (see distance/virtual Reiki). The recipient remains fully clothed in a comfortable and supported seated or lying down position.
Reiki energy can be experienced in many different ways. Most commonly recipients report a feeling of peace, lightness and deep relaxation often compared to meditation. Some people experience bodily sensations such as heat, warmth, tingling or a feeling as if energy is moving. Others may feel a release of physical and emotional stress, feeling light and energized after. Some may see colours while others may experience deeper insights. Each session is different and each experience is equal. Reiki energy will naturally adjust to the individual's needs. Your Reiki session will be perfect for you.
Reiki can be offered along with any health care program. It can support and enhance all forms of treatments. Many hospitals, hospices and others have included Reiki as part of their treatment plans.
Reiki is a gift of healing that is beneficial to people of all ages. Adults, babies, children, animals and even plants respond beautifully to the Reiki healing energy.
