What is Reiki…
“A healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient’s body and restore physical and emotional well-being”. Oxford English Dictionary
Reiki is an ancient Japanese energy healing technique to reduce stress and promote deep relaxation. It is not a religion and you don’t need to change any religious beliefs to receive it.
Reiki is a non-invasive, gentle hands on healing technique, where the practitioner places their hands on or near the body and gives energy to the recipient. It is widely recognised by the NHS and is a great compliment to orthodox treatments.
Many use it to deepen their spiritual connection and find it enhances their religious beliefs. For those that are not religious, you may find it strengthens your spiritual connection, similar to meditation and yoga. It is a deeply transformative, spiritual healing that creates mindfulness and inner peace, supporting your wellbeing.
The word Reiki is comprised of two Japanese words. ‘Rei’ translates to ‘Spiritual Wisdom’ ‘Higher Power’. This is our connection to consciousness and the divine, it is the wisdom from the ‘higher self’ and will always know how to serve your highest good.
‘Ki’ means ‘Life Force Energy’. ‘Ki’ is your life force energy. We are all made of energy, to give ‘life’. Therefore, if your ‘life force energy’ is low you will feel tired and susceptible to illness.
‘Reiki’ is ‘Spiritually Guided Life Force Energy’ It is intelligent energy that deals with the root cause of the problem, not just the symptoms, working on your mental, physical and spiritual level to instill a sense of peace and inner calm, melting your stress away. Your body has all it needs to be healthy and heal and Reiki helps facilitate your bodies natural healing, by bringing your body into it’s natural state.
If your body has a cut, you do not question how your body will heal, as you trust your body will know what to do. However, if there is dis-harmony in the body or energy blockages, created by emotional trauma, stress and life events, then the energy flow slows down as our life force drains. Energy healing gently clears blockages and what no longer serves you, by lifting resentment, pain and trapped energy. It will help you feel lighter, energised and aligned. Our immune system is our innate healing system and energy healing helps support a healthy immune system.
Reiki is safe for children, animals, the elderly and pregnancy. It can help everyone.
