Reiki Healing

Reiki may sound “new age” to some, but it is anything but new. In fact, it is a form of energy healing with roots in ancient cultures. Reiki uses what is known as universal life force energy to improve people’s lives and ailments. The term “reiki” comes from the Japanese words “rei,” meaning universal, and “ki,” which means vital life force energy that flows through all living things. Some practitioners describe Reiki as acupuncture without needles.

Reiki is a complementary health approach in which practitioners place their hands on or just above different body areas. It is based on an Eastern medical belief that living beings have energy fields that support their health and vitality. Energy blockages impede the flow of energy, causing not only health problems but also negative life circumstances, such as financial problems or relationship problems. Reiki practitioners focus on detecting energy blockages and moving the energy for the highest good of the client.

Increased relaxation during and after the Reiki treatment
A primary benefit of receiving Reiki is deep relaxation. Reiki activates your parasympathetic nervous system and induces a relaxation response.

When you are relaxed you heal
  • spiritually
  • physically
  • emotionally
  • mentally
Reiki treatment helps you manage
  • stress
  • anxiety
  • grief
  • depression
It is common and beneficial to fall asleep while receiving Reiki. Often during or after a Reiki treatment, you think differently about the situation that is challenging you. Reiki makes you stronger in yourself so that you can better handle life's challenges. During your Reiki treatment, you are connected to yourself and with life and the wonderful aspects of it. Also, you have higher energy levels. Stress, mental and emotional tension make you feel tired and exhausted. Reiki has the opposite effect.

After receiving Reiki you are
  • energised
  • happier
  • clearer
  • motivated
  • grateful
Reduction in physical pain after Reiki treatment
To examine how Reiki can help relieve pain, let's compare Reiki to massage. Unlike massage which works to soften tense muscles by a practitioner directly manipulating soft tissue and joints, a Reiki practitioner does not directly manipulate soft tissue or joints. Reiki is excellent for treating painful conditions that are not suitable to be treated with other manual therapies because it is gentle and non-invasive.

Reiki has helped people with
  • chronic fatigue syndrome
  • fibromyalgia
  • stroke
  • digestive conditions
  • headaches
  • back pain
  • menstrual cramping
  • reduce pain in cancer patients
