Dr Mikao Usui, a Japanese doctor in 1914, introduced Reiki to the world. It is a hands-on technique of spiritual healing used for the reduction of tension and stress, to promote healing and relaxation, and as a method of self-development.
Reiki – Rei meaning ‘higher power’ and ki meaning ‘life force’ – uses the guided life force energy to flow to you allowing your life force energy to increase and brings about health, relaxation and feelings of peace.
This flowing of energy does not deplete the energy of the practitioner and can be used on everyone from children, pregnant ladies to the old and infirmed and on any condition.
You are treated as a whole – meaning your emotions, mind, spirit and body are touched by the life force energy in each session surrounding you with a feeling of safety, peace and general well being.
A Reiki treatment takes about 60 minutes. In a safe and peaceful atmosphere you relax, fully clothed, on a massage table, the practitioner places her hands in a series of positions on the body and the life force energy flows from the practitioner to you.
You may experience different sensations such as a warm glow, heat, cold patches, buzzing, or you may be aware of feelings, pictures or the like. These sensations are the result of the increase in energy which increase the level of vibrations which, allows you to let go of fears, tensions etc replacing negative feeling with peace and tranquillity.
