Illness can be a time of great stress. Reiki can help us cope by encouraging relaxation and bringing balance to both mind and emotions.

 

Benefits reported by Clients/Patients include deep relaxation promoting a calm, peaceful sense of well being; on all levels.

 

Reiki encourages and supports positive personal choices as such as improving diet, taking more exercise, devoting time for rest or leisure activities, and may reduce the need for alcohol and tobacco. Engendering greater inner harmony and balance, regular Reiki treatments promote a calmer response to life’s challenges.

 

Reiki’s gentle energy is easily adapted to most medical conditions and may be used safely by people of all ages, including the newborn, pregnant mothers, surgical patients, the frail and the elderly, in any situation.

 

Being complementary, Reiki works effectively alongside orthodox healthcare and natural remedies, expanding treatment options.

Reiki can enhance everyday living, and regular sessions may help to promote development of a healthier, more resourceful state of being.

 

Reiki is being used in various locations including private practice, complementary therapy centres, GP surgeries, hospitals, hospice, cancer support groups, post-operative recovery, drug rehabilitation, prisons, HIV/AIDS centres, and in the care of the elderly.

 

Frequency of Treatments

Even one single Reiki session may make a difference; however a course of regular treatments may be more effective. These could be weekly, fortnightly or less often, depending on individual needs.

A treatment plan will be discussed with you, and reviewed as necessary. This will always be subject to your own preferences, and can be changed at any time in line with progress.

What is Reiki

Reiki is a natural healing energy activated by intention. It works on every level, not just the physical. The practice of Reiki is an original method of healing, developed by Mikao Usui in Japan early in the 20th century.

 

The Japanese word Reiki means ‘Universal Energy’. Eastern medicine has always recognised and worked with this energy, which flows through all living things and is vital to well-being; known as ‘ki’ in Japan, ‘chi’ in China and ‘prana’ in India. Acupuncture, Tai chi and Yoga are also based on the free-flow of this energy in a person.

 

Reiki is a non-invasive therapy whose aim is to treat holistically and to restore homeostasis.

 

Nirvana Spirit imageWhat Happens During a Session

A Reiki treatment is non-diagnostic, non-interventionist, non-manipulative and no pressure is applied.

 

A session is usually carried out with the recipient lying down, or sitting, in a comfortable and peaceful environment. There is no need to remove any clothing as Reiki passes easily through all materials, including plaster casts.

The practitioner places their hands gently on or over the body. The recipient automatically draws in only as much energy as is needed, using it in whatever way is most appropriate at the time.

 

Reiki may be experienced as a flow of energy, mild tingling, warmth, coolness, other sensations, or nothing at all.

 

Reiki is deeply relaxing and has a profoundly calming effect. It is good idea to rest for a while afterwards and drink plenty of water over the next few days. Be responsive to your body’s needs eg: resting if tires, and allowing the energy to continue its work in the days following the session. The beneficial effects may be felt for several days.
