Reiki is a system of energy healing which evolved from the experiences and dedication of Dr. Mikao Usui, a healer and teacher who lived in the 19th century. The word reiki stems from Japanese and means universal life force. Reiki is a natural healing energy which flows from the practioner’s hands and into the client.
A reiki treatment uses gentle touch to replenish and balance the energy in your body. The energy flows to the area of need, soothing pain and supporting the body’s innate ability to heal itself. These energies revitalize you when you feel drained and calm you if you are experiencing upset or stress.
To receive a treatment, the recipient simply relaxes on a massage table, fully dressed and covered with a fleece blanket. The practitioner will then use various hand positions over the person’s head, neck, chest, abdomen, legs and feet.
If unable to lie down, the treatment can be given in a seated position. There is no religion or belief system attached to Reiki so anyone can receive Reiki treatments. The only prerequisite is the desire to be healed and for physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.
