This is an ancient Japanese healing tradition based on the original methods of Mikao Usui that was founded in the 1900’s.
Rei can be translated as universal energy and Ki as life force energy which surrounds all living things. We live in a world of energy that nourishes and maintains all living things. When this energy flows uninterrupted there is balance and harmony within and around us, and we experience a sense of well being. If we have an emotional trauma or a physical illness we acquire an energy blockage.
The treatment works to allow universal energy to be channelled around the body to where it is needed to heal and restore balance on a physical and emotional level.
The recipient remains clothed and lies on a couch or sits on a chair and the practitioner gently places their hands in a series of non-intrusive positions on or near the body.
Each person experiences Reiki differently depending on their individual needs at the time. You may or may not feel sensations during a Reiki treatment. Benefits reported by recipients include deep relaxation promoting a peaceful sense of well being and increased energy.
