What is Reiki? As we know, everything in our existence is made from energy. Reiki is a Japanese word meaning life force energy. Although sounding very mysterious, it's just physics and is much simpler than we realise. Life force energy is present in us all. Reiki is not based around any belief system so anyone can receive or learn to give a Reiki treatment.
Just like electricity, x-rays or wireless networks, reiki energy is invisible to the naked eye. This energy flows within our physical and energetic layers through pathways called chakras and meridians. It nourishes the organs and cells of the body, supporting them in their vital functions. When the energy flow is disrupted through negativities in day-to-day life, it can upset functioning in organs and tissues.
Reiki heals by flowing through the energy fields, recharging with positive energy and clearing any blockages or dense patches the energy pathways.
A Reiki treatment is given fully clothed in a comfortable laying position with the therapist gradually moving around the couch, placing hands in different positions on the chakras then around the body. A very soothing, gentle and relaxing treatment. You may experience warmth, tingling sensations, cool areas, some people see colours, or you may simply feel very relaxed.
