What is Reiki?
Reiki (pronounced Ray-key) is a Japanese word used to describe ‘Universal Life Force Energy.’
The Usui System of Reiki Healing is a hands-on healing practice (or hands off per request). The technique uses the Universal life force energy to balance the subtle energies within our bodies and to heal. Reiki practitioners act as a conduit or channel through which Reiki energy travels.
The intended result of receiving Reiki is a balanced physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual being.
How can Reiki help me?
Reiki is a safe, non-invasive therapy. It is known to facilitate a deep state of relaxation, and can be used to manage stress, and promote well-being and comfort. Additionally, research and clinical experience show that it may help with treating symptoms such as pain, anxiety and depression, fatigue, and insomnia.
Reiki is a complementary medical art that works well alone as well as together with other medical treatments. However, Reiki should not be used to replace medical care or to postpone seeing a healthcare provider about a health problem. It is also highly encouraged to tell your healthcare provider about any and all therapies you are using outside of your conventional care,
How will I feel during a session?
Every session is unique and personalized to the individual. Some clients describe sensations of warmth, vibration, or pulsing. Others describe a sense of deep relaxation.
If you are new to Reiki, begin your Reiki session with an open mind. If you lay there thinking, “When’s it gonna start?”; “I don’t feel anything?” or, “Is this stuff for real?” then you will not be in the best frame of mind to relax and enjoy the best experience.
It’s OK to wonder what it might be like if you’ve never experienced it before, but everyone is unique and it’s impossible to tell you beforehand what and how you will experience your Reiki session.
