Japanese Technique for Stress Relief and Relaxation
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy".
The person receiving the Reiki during the treatment draws the amount of energy that they need, not from their conscious mind but a higher part which knows what is best for them and also decides how to use the energy. Reiki works on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level, as well as covering all the glands, organs and main energy center of the body.
Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.
Reiki enhances the body’s own innate ability to heal itself on all levels. It helps to restore balance and harmony to the mind, body and spirit.
Contrary to belief Reiki is NOT a Religion.
Once you book an appointment, the energy starts to work and healing starts taking place, this explains how sometimes when the appointment comes up, you feel like you don’t need it.
