Reiki (pronounced “Ray-Key”) is a simple Japanese energy-balancing method that is used by hundreds of thousands of people all over the world. It is most well known as a sort of hands-on treatment technique, and many people have regular treatments.
Reiki was developed by a man called Mikao Usui in the early 1900's in Japan and people use Reiki for self healing, for spiritual- or self-development, and to treat others. Reiki practitioners carry out meditations, treat themselves, and follow a set of simple spiritual principles called 'precepts'. Reiki is not a religion.
Anyone can benefit from a course of Reiki treatments, no matter what your age or your state of health, and beneficial changes can take place over a fairly short space of time.
• Deep relaxation
• Reduced stress and anxiety
• Boosted energy levels
• A feeling of inner calm, contentment and serenity
• A speeding up of the natural healing process
• Feel more positive, confident and better able to cope
• Deal better with stressful people and difficult situations
• Develop a strong sense of purpose and clear-thinking
• Remove some of the 'clutter' from your life
• Enjoy a better quality of life
Receiving Reiki from a practitioner is a simple process. The client lies on a treatment table and the practitioner will gently lay their hands on the body in a series of hand positions on the head, torso, and legs, sometimes hovering the hands rather than touching. Each hand position is held for a few minutes. During the treatment, energy (called “chi”) is drawn through the practitioner into the recipient, helping to produce a state of balance. The recipient remains clothed throughout the session.
Deep relaxation, heat from the practitioner's hands, perhaps tingling, a feeling of floating or sinking, or perhaps nothing at all. It varies a lot from one person to another. But no matter what you feel during your treatment, Reiki is giving you what you need.
While a one-off Reiki treatment will do something beneficial for you, bringing a sense of calm and peacefulness, and maybe producing some short-term physical benefits too, the best results come through having a course of treatments, maybe 4-6 sessions at weekly intervals.
The effects of Reiki build up cumulatively and having a course of treatments helps to produce long-term beneficial changes for you on many levels.
