What is Reiki?

According to leading Reiki Masters, Reiki can be considered Spiritual Energy or Universal Life Force (Chi), and when Reiki flows into someone it balances, heals and harmonizes all aspects of that person - body, mind, emotions and spirit - promoting relaxation and a sense of well-being. Reiki naturally flows to the areas that you need it the most, allowing for enhanced awareness, detoxification, and harmony. Our bodies have the capacity to heal themselves naturally when in a state of peace, relaxation and balance.

During a Reiki session the Spiritual Energy is activated through the practitioner’s hands and the energy flow is transmitted to the client who lays fully clothed on a massage table. The practitioner follows a series of hand positions on the head, shoulders, chest, abdomen, hips, knees and feet, and these placements bring rejuvenating energy to all the major organs, and endocrine glands that play a role in our overall health and well being. Reiki works just as well with or without touch. There is no body manipulation required. Reiki helps to remove energetic blockages and constrictions in the body's meridians and chakras and helps to increase depleted areas of energy.

What to Expect with Reiki?

Reiki can be completed in person or via distance. Both are equally effective. The goal is to help you to regain a sense of wholeness.

Reiki is unique to each person and the benefits are varied and numerous. Some of the benefits may include:

  • Profound relaxation
  • Personal Development and Growth
  • Improvement in sleep and digestion
  • Increased creativity
  • Release of accumulated daily stress
  • Deepened awareness of self, others and the world
  • Calming of excessive mental chatter
  • Accelerated Healing
  • Assist the body in cleansing toxins
  • Balance the flow of subtle energy by releasing blockages
  • Help to connect with the Healer Within
  • Strengthening of the immune system
  • Support in recovering from illness and pain

I recommend regularly scheduled sessions of Reiki, starting with three to six sessions, in order to help kickstart the healing process. Although for people interested in re-balancing and re-energizing, a tune-up so to speak, the occasional Reiki session can help with that. I also highly recommend the combination of Reiki with Counselling. Please check out the Counselling plus Reiki page for more information.
