What is Reiki?
Reiki is a natural healing energy activated by intention. It works on different levels including the emotional, mental and spiritual levels.
The practice of Reiki is a method developed by Mikao Usui in Japan. The word 'reiki' means Universal energy, this energy which flows through all loving things is also known as 'ki' in Japan, 'chi' in China and 'prana' in India.
Reiki is non invasive, gentle and is carried out with the client remaining fully clothed (except shoes!), the practitioner works with either their hands on or off the body, this will be discussed during the consultation session.
Reiki is not
Time out for you
What happens during a session?
Being the the practitioner, I will fill out a short consultation form and obtain your agreement to carry out Reiki. I shall talk you through what will happen during the session and it will be an opportunity for you to raise any questions.
A session is usually carried out with the client laying down in a peaceful calm room with pillows under the head and a blanket placed over them if they wish (it is quite cosy). (edit: due to restrictions a blanket will not be used however when you have your session confirmed I shall talk you through the measures put in place, comfort, safety and relaxation is of importance!))
I shall be placing my hands gently on the body of the client, this would have already been discussed beforehand and Reiki can also be offered without any contact on the body. there is no massage or manipulation.
Will I feel anything?
Reiki is taken in by the body to where it is needed. People feel different things and quite often than not, no two sessions are ever the same.
Common feelings that do arise include deep relaxation and often the client will drift off to sleep!
Other feelings you may experience are;
The body feels heavy/light
Have a sense of wellbeing
Feeling peaceful and calm
Quite often the clients tummy will rumble or gurgle or the person may yawn a lot
I have also had clients who shed some tears
All of the above are perfectly normal responses.
Some people will laugh, some will cry, some will think that they felt nothing at all..it is all unique to you.
After the session I will recommend that you drink plenty of water and not to do anything too strenuous for the rest of that day.
