Reiki is an energy healing modality used for health and wellness. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word: “Rei” – meaning Universal and “Ki” meaning Energy. As a Reiki practitioner I am able to channel this life force energy, and in doing so, assist in helping remove energy blocks created by physical injury or emotion pain and improving the flow of energy around the body. Reiki can be considered an excellent complementary treatment if you are trying to manage chronic health conditions or under a lot of stress.
During the session most clients feel a sense of relaxation and peace. You may find you become so relaxed that you fall asleep or you may experience was of energy moving throughout your body. Some clients experience sensations in the body such as heat or tingling, while others feel nothing at all. Whether you feel something or not , be assured Reiki energy is going where its most needed.
In Person Reiki Session
Your healing session will begin with a brief chat about your needs. You then lie, fully clothed on a massage table for the treatment. Reiki is shared through light, non-invasive touch, at other times my hands will be just above your body. If you would prefer a ‘no touch’ Reiki session, please let me know prior to the session commencing.
To prepare for your session please wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothing. You will be asked to remove your shoes, jewellery and glasses before your session, and to keep your phone switched off or on silent.
What you may feel after a Reiki Session
After a Reiki session, you will be encouraged to drink water and follow your own body’s needs, such as resting if tired. Most people generally leave a Reiki session feeling refreshed however, Reiki treatments can sometimes stimulate a mild detoxification process such as fatigue, mild diarrhoea or extreme tiredness. This is not an adverse reaction to the Reiki but rather the body’s natural healing response. These reactions generally subside within 24hrs.
How many sessions should I receive?
One session is a great start however, the number of sessions will vary, depending on what you wish to accomplish. Some clients prefer to have one session while others have a series of sessions to work on a particular issue. I recommend three sessions to start as this gives you time to evaluate what benefits you are receiving. These sessions could be scheduled across a number of days or weeks depending on how serious your health challenge is or if your treatment is just for general well-being.
In the presence of a serious health challenge you should seek a licensed medical practitioner. However, Reiki can be an excellent complement to health challenges and health or wellness plans.
Conditions that Reiki has been used to help treat:
Anxiety, Depression, Chronic Pain, Infertility, Neurodegenerative Disorders, Crohn’s disease, Cancer, Fatigue Syndrome
Energy healing is complementary in nature and should not replace any traditional medical treatments. Please continue to seek medical advice when necessary.
