Reiki is a Japanese holistic, light-touch, energy-based treatment. It is a technique for natural healing, stress reduction, and relaxation. Reiki re-establishes a normal energy flow of ki (life force energy) throughout the body's system, which in turn can enhance and accelerate its healing ability, improving health and enhancing one's quality of life. Reiki treats the whole person: body, mind and spirit.
Clients, fully clothed, lie on a treatment table. the practitioner's hands are gently placed on certain areas of the body (from head to toe) or a few inches above the body. Reiki is not massage.
Channeled energy moves through the practitioner's hands and into the person's body to the degree and to the areas it is required. Reiki helps maintain a healthy flow of energy within our bodies by removing any blockages due to stress, tiredness, worry or pain.
Many individuals report feeling more balanced, less stressed, more relaxed, relief from pain and worries, or of being nurtured - it's different for each person and may be different at each session. Generally, energy and alertness increase, and a feeling of overall well-being is usually notices after a treatment. Reiki also works well with all other forms of therapy and complements other treatments.
