REIKI Treatments

Energy healing can transform your life

Reiki

“Do not believe in anything (simply) because you have heard it. Do not believe in traditions…handed down over generations…because it is spoken…written… But, after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conductive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.”

Gautama Buddha
Anguttara Nikaya Vol.1, pp. 188-193.

 

Reiki – how energy healing can transform your life;

  • The Japanese word Reiki is often translated as ‘universal life force energy’, ‘spiritual energy’.
  • Rei’ is translated as ‘sacred’, ‘soul’ or ‘spirit’.
  • ‘Ki’ is translated as the life-force energy which flows through every living thing.

what I can offer

professional Reiki therapist (Shinpiden/ master level)

  • A reiki treatment realigns one with ones own true path, source and spirit.
  • If I asked you to imagine a free-flowing river…this beautiful tranquil river is like the energy flowing through our bodies with ease. Occasionally however, a pebble or even a rock might fall into that river making the flow of the water a little more difficult. These pebbles can be worries, fears and many other problems and sometimes those pebbles, those problems can build up. Soon there is only a trickle of water running in that once beautiful free flowing river…and so it is within the energy in the human body.
  • During Reiki the pure natural flow of energy is realigned within the body, washing it down, clearing any obstructions and strengthening the overall flow of energy.
  • Reiki is a form of holistic healing, focusing in the body, mind and soul, supporting each individual to heal themselves.

what is involved

Reiki Sessions

  • The Reiki practitioner will have a dedicated quiet space for therapy, light a candle and play soft music during a session to drown out any ambient noise. The practitioner will explain the process and ask if you have any specific needs or problems. For example, you might have a problem lying flat on your back or front because of an injury.
  • During the session you remain fully clothed except for the shoes. You may lie on a therapy bed or sit comfortably in a chair. The practitioner offers light, non-invasive touch on a series of locations on the head, the front and back of the torso and the limbs. The touch is very light, neither intrusive nor unsuitable and there is no pressure and will last for 2 to 3 minutes at each spot.
  • Alternatively, the practitioner will hold the hands off the body without touching the patient.
  • While the practitioner holds the hands on or above the patient, the transfer of energy takes place and the practitioner’s hands may feel warm and/or tingling.

Treating the whole person at physical, emotional, spiritual and mental level bringing many benefits.

Reiki Treatment

1. Promotes Harmony & Balance – Reiki helps to promote harmony and balance. It is an effective, non invasive energy healing modality that enhances the body’s natural healing ability whilst energising and promoting overall wellness. Reiki works directly on restoring balance on all levels and works directly on the problem and condition instead of just masking or relieving symptoms.

2. Creates deep relaxation and helps the body release stress and tension – What many people enjoy about a reiki treatment is it allows them time to themselves where they aren’t ‘doing’ but just ‘being’. Clients have reported feeling more clear, peaceful, relaxed and lighter in themselves, able to ‘switch off’ and relax.

Reiki provides a space where you can be more aware of what is going on inside your body and mind. To learn to listen to your own body and make wise decisions regarding your well being from this place. Being more present means you are in your body, which helps you to access even more that inner knowing and wisdom that we all have!

3. Dissolves energy blocks and promotes natural balance between mind, body and spirit – Regular Reiki treatments can bring about a calmer and more peaceful state of being, in which a person is better able to cope with everyday stress. This mental balance also enhances learning, memory and mental clarity.  Reiki can heal mental/emotional wounds and can help alleviate mood swings, fear, frustration and even anger. Reiki can also strengthen and heal personal relationships.  Because Reiki enhances your capability to love, it can open you up to the people around you and help your relationships grow.

4. Assists the body in cleansing itself from toxins and supports the immune system – We spend so much time in stress-reactive way of being that it becomes our ‘norm’ and our bodies literally forget how to return to balance.  Reiki reminds our bodies how to shift into parasympathetic nervous system (rest / digest) self-healing mode.  Rest/digest doesn’t mean you have to stop being active and productive or ‘do nothing’. It allows you to sleep better and digest better which is important to maintaining health and vitality. The more you are in this space, the more you can be active and productive without being stressed, exhausted or burnt out.

5. Clears the mind and improves focus as you feel grounded & centred – Reiki can support you in staying centred in the present moment rather than getting caught up in regrets about the past or anxieties about the future. It can strengthen your ability to accept and work with the way events are unfolding even when they don’t follow your desires or timetable. You begin to react to situations, people and yourself in a supportive way rather than acting our of habit.

6. Aids better sleep – The number one outcome of receiving a Reiki session is relaxation. When we’re relaxed, we sleep better, our bodies heal better, we think more clearly, and we relate to each other more genuinely. Often clients will experience deep relaxation during their Reiki session and sometimes a deep sleep during the session as well.

7. Accelerates the body’s self-healing ability as you start to return to your natural state – Reiki healing quickly returns you to your natural state, or at least gets your body moving in the right direction.  That means your breathing, heart rate and blood pressure improve. Breathing deeper and easier is one of the first things to happen during a self-practice or treatment received from someone else. When we breath better, our minds naturally settle. Science supports that.  As your respiration deepens your body moves into parasympathetic nervous system (PNS) dominance i.e. the rest/digest phase. Your body was made to function primarily in the rest/digest phase rather than the more commonly experienced fight/flight phase.

8. Helps relieve pain and supports the physical body healing – On the outside looking in, a Reiki treatment might appear to be merely a sequence of hand placements, it works to restore balance on the deepest possible level. It encourages your system to improve your body’s vital functions (breathing, digesting and sleeping) so your physical systems function optimally.  On the physical level, Reiki helps to relieve pain from migraine, arthritis, sciatica ~ just to name a few. It also helps with symptoms of asthma, chronic fatigue, menopausal symptoms, and insomnia.

9. Helps spiritual growth and emotional cleansing – You do not need to be into spirituality to enjoy the benefits of reiki. Yet, for many they receive reiki treatments to support themselves through their self healing journey i.e. spiritual growth / personal development.  Reiki addresses the whole person, rather than targeting individual symptoms. It can create profound, often subtle shifts from deep within your own being. What does that look like? Guidance about what to do around difficult situations can come more easily. Or it may inspire a change in attitude or belief about your situation. Suddenly, you see your condition from a fresh perspective and are able to deal with it in a more positive way. Or it might direct you to the right kind of action needed which is guided from within.

10. Compliments medical treatment & other therapies – Reiki is a wonderful compliment to conventional medicine and helps relax patients on the levels of the mind and physical body. When a patient is relaxed the healing process is accelerated. People sleep much better and are calmer following Reiki treatments.  The beauty of Reiki is that it is non invasive and is administered in a very gentle manner. The Reiki practitioner can give Reiki without touching the body in cases where patients have burns or major injuries.  Reiki is safe to use if you have medical conditions such as epilepsy, diabetes or heart conditions. You may receive Reiki treatments if you are undergoing chemotherapy. Pregnant woman can have Reiki treatments to support them through all stages of the pregnancy. Reiki is for everyone!

"Scientific Evidence"

Promoting the efficacy of Reiki

We often talk about ‘energy’ in different ways referring to the sources in food and fuel, however, Einstein and later on, quantum physicists, also explained it at a quantum level; forms of ‘energy’ is between 10,000 and 100,000 times smaller than an atom because of the reality that ‘energy’ vibrates and oscillates in every single thing that exists in the universe.

Pioneering research carried out in 1985 by Valerie. V. Hunt, Executive Director of the Bio-Energy fields foundation and Professor Emeritus at the University of California, found that by using an electro-myograph they could measure the electrical output from the body. This pioneering research provided the scientific evidence to prove that the spiritual wisdom that has been part of many cultures for over thousands of years…is true!

After each treatment it is important to drink lots of water and if possible, rest, to continue the clearing process that was initiated by the Reiki.
