Reiki and Energy Healing

What is Reiki? Reiki is an ancient Japanese technique used for stress reduction and relaxation which also promotes natural healing and balancing the Mind Body and Soul.  I had the privilege of experiencing a Reiki session in 2015 and it immediately changed my life, removed old blocks and provided me with the clarity I needed to move forward in my life.  Not only did I feel energetically lighter but I felt boosted and peaceful, it was the conduit I needed to help me move forward to heal. I knew I had to pay this pure energy forward.

Reiki was discovered in 1922 by Dr. Mikao Usui and is administered by a Reiki Practitioner through the hands by a limitless source (God force) which is so powerful.  The word Reiki is represented by two kanji, Rei and Ki.  Rei represents the spiritual wisdom and Ki which means the same as Chi, Prana, Sanskrit and Ti is the life energy, also known as the vital life force or universal life energy.

Reiki FAQ

How is a Reiki treatment givenReiki is administered through the hands by a Reiki Practitioner whom has been attuned with this life force energy from a Reiki Master. This energy flows from the practitioner to the client whom is fully clothed. The practitioner places their hands on or near the client’s body by using a series of specific hand positions.  They start from the crown, head down to your face, neck, heart and all the seven main chakras, also known as energy centres all the way down to the feet.

Do I sit up or lie down for a treatment? Reiki can be given both seated in a chair and lying down.  Typically, clients prefer lying down either on the floor on top of blankets, or on a Reiki table which I highly recommend.  A light blanket and pillow are set up on the reiki table if the client should need them.

How long is a Reiki Session? It is recommended that you book a one hour long session with your practitioner.  This way you achieve the maximum benefits of this beautiful pure life force energy. However, half an hour sessions are also available.

Can Reiki harm you? The answer to this question is NO!, it is guided by spiritual consciousness therefore can never harm what so ever. It always knows what a person needs and will adjust itself to create an effect that is appropriate. This energy is so safe and very helpful.

How does Reiki heal? We are alive because of life energy or Ki, flows within the physical body through pathways called chakras, meridians and nadis. It also flows around us in a field of energy called the aura.  When the Ki is balanced it promotes well being, nourishing our organs and cells of our body, supporting their vital functions.  When the healthy Ki is disrupted, it causes diminished functioning and further illnesses. Ki responds to thoughts and feelings, when we are engaged in positive thoughts we increase our flow, when we engage in negative thoughts our Ki becomes disrupted. Reiki unblocks, clears up and aligns the pathways as a result healthy Ki flows in naturally.

What does a Reiki session feel like? Everyone is different and that said will experience a different feeling.  Some typical feelings during a sessions are: deep sense of relaxation, warmth, coldness, falling asleep, visions, sadness, crying, anger and shaking.  These are some examples of feelings which have been suppressed and are released gently during a session. It is very normal to feel any of these and this a great sign that much healing is taking place.  At the end of it all, you WILL feel more balanced, happier, positive and relaxed!!!!

Is Reiki a religion? No, Reiki is NOT a religion and there is no dogma attached to this.

Can distance healing be done with Reiki? YES! Reiki can be given via distance, your Reiki Practitioner is trained to complete a session(s) for you regardless of your distance geographically. What a gift to be able to share!
