Reiki is Japanese for Universal Life Force Energy. It is the energy we are all made from. We are bodies of energy. When we become ill, upset, stressed, emotionally and mentally challenged, the energy centers, (called chakras) become blocked and/or unbalanced. By channeling in Universal Life Force Energy the chakras are able to release blocks, balance and re-establish health and well-being. When a practitioner is attuned to Reiki he/she is able to channel this energy for self- healing or to help others.
There are three levels of Reiki. First level you are attuned to receive Reiki and are able to help yourself and others. The second level the energy level is highly increased. You are given the ability to send distance Reiki to anyone/anywhere. The third Level is the Master/Teacher which gives you the ability to pass it on to others.
What to Expect
Reiki is a non-invasive therapy. Your practitioner will use energy flow from their hands to re-balance each of your energy centres. You will remain fully clothed, lying on a massage couch or sitting in a chair. The practitioner will either place their hands on or above your body, using their intuition to guide energy flow. Your whole body may be treated or just specific parts, depending on where imbalances are thought to lie. Reiki may also be used remotely, with the recipient’s consent.
Benefits of Reiki
Reiki is often described as a very relaxing and peaceful treatment, which helps to restore a sense of balance and well-being within the mind and body. Due to the very gentle nature of this treatment, it is often used to support those receiving conventional medical care in hospitals, hospices or at home.
