"Reiki" is a Japanese word meaning "spritual energy" or "universal life force energy". (You may also have heard of this universal energy referred to as "Ki", "Qi" or "Prana" in Eastern medicine). It is the subtle energy which flows through all living things.
Reiki is a gentle yet powerful complementary therapy that may safely be used alongside orthodox medicine. There are no known medical contra-indications to Reiki and it is now becoming more widely available in hospitals, hospices, cancer support groups etc.
It is suitable for people of all ages, including newborn babies, pregnant mothers and the frail or elderly.
There are a number of different forms of "Reiki." Eileen has trained in the Usui method; one of its fundamental purposes is to encourage personal and spiritual awareness and growth.
What are the benefits?
Reiki supports the body's natural self-healing ability by encouraging the free-flow of energy through the meridian energy channels. This is believed to help restore balance and harmony on all levels; mental, emotional, physical and spiritual.
As the body balances itself, physical symptoms may also noticeably subside following a treatment.
Reiki provides a balancing influence in life, and is particularly beneficial where an individual is experiencing key emotional issues or life changes. It helps to promote a balanced and positive outlook on life, feelings of wellness and inner peace.
What happens during a session?
The client remains fully clothed during a Reiki session and will usually recline and relax on a treatment couch, or a chair can be used if preferred.
No pressure, manipulation or massage is required in Reiki. The Practitioner will place their hands slightly above or lightly touching the client in a series of specific hand positions, beginning at the top of the head and working all the way down the body to the feet, spending time in each position before moving to the next.
The client draws the energy through the Practitioner who acts as a conduit, and channels it as required.
The client may often experience heat or coolness, tingling, or itching during a treatment, and will usually experience the feeling of any stress lifting and being replaced by deep relaxation - sometimes a client will be so relaxed, they fall asleep.
Emotions or even past memories may come to the surface as the energy goes wherever it is needed and helps to promote harmony and balance on physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels.
As part of the cleansing and balancing process, the client is encouraged to drink plenty of water and eat a balanced diet after the treatment to assist with any detoxifying or cleansing processes.
Reiki energy will flow regardless of age, gender, belief system or creed. You don't even have to believe in it for it work although the more open you are to the experience, the more you are likely to notice all the effects.
