What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.*
How is a Reiki Treatment Given?
During your treatment you will feel the energy flow from your practitioner’s hands to you. You will be dressed to your comfort level and laying on the massage table. The practitioner will place her hands on or near the client’s body in a sequence of positions, including the head, shoulders, stomach, and feet. Depending on your needs, the practitioner may also place her hands in other specific locations. The positions are held for a period of time depending on how much Reiki the client needs at each position.
What will I feel?
What one experiences will vary from person to person. However, most experience feelings of deep relaxation. In addition, they may feel a deep glowing energy all around them after a session. The Reiki energy encourages one to let go of stress, tension, anxiety and fears. Some people may drift off to sleep (and that is ok) or feel like they have entered a deep meditative state. At the end of the session one can expect to feel more refreshed and with a balanced outlook.
