Reiki is an ancient form of hands on healing that originates in Japan. The Japanese word Rei means universal life and Ki means energy. It is (pronounced Ray Key). Reiki healing is a soothing treatment that promotes deep relaxation and healing and works holistically with the mind, body and spirit.
At the start of the session I will ask you about your medical health and any key areas that you would like me to focus on. I select supportive crystals and aromatherapy oils and soft soothing music to use during the treatment.
The patient stays fully clothed in a comfortable position on a Reiki table or chair. The treatment can be done with a light touch or if preferred no touch at all. There is an aura cleanse and a chakra check for any imbalances. The treatment usually starts with the hands held around or gently placed on the head. The patient is encouraged to relax with their eyes closed. The practitioner works on chakra energy centres throughout the body and is led intuitively by the body that uses the energy where it is needed most to bring the body back into balance.
Patients have different experiences during Reiki treatments. Some people feel a deep relaxation and wellbeing and a sense of feeling lighter. It is not unusual to fall asleep. Other patients feel tingles - or sensations of heat and cold. Occasionally they may feel an emotional response. You do not need to feel anything during the treatment for the Reiki therapy to be working.
Reiki healing is simple and safe for all ages. It is beneficial for babies, children, and adults and treatment can be done alongside other conventional medicines. Reiki supports and enhances other forms of treatment including Homeopathy.
Reiki therapy can help with all areas, it supports other conventional treatments to rebalance the mind body and spirit. I have supported clients with fertility issues, post operative recovery and injuries, rebalancing hormones. health and wellbeing, stress, spiritual development, sleep issues and emotional healing.
I will often suggest that Homeopathy clients have a Reiki session with me to clear energy blockages that are slowing down healing, or help speed up a detoxification. It can also be helpful for focusing on a particular area of the body that needs additional help.
I have found that it is very calming for children and babies and is very supportive in pregnancy and pre pregnancy. Reiki treatments offer gentle support for all.
It can vary depending on your individual health and circumstances. To see the most benefit, three sessions over a period of two weeks are recommended and then a regular maintenance session once a month.
