What is Reiki and how is it done?
“Rei” means soul, spirit, divine, essence, and/or sacred. “Ki” means life force, cosmic and/or universal energy. Combined they are “Reiki”, universal life-force energy. Reiki is designed to balance, heal and harmonize your body, mind, emotions, and spirit. It encourages deep relaxation, releasing stress and tension to promote greater awareness and spiritual growth. It is done by the Reiki Teacher/Master channeling ancient healing energy into your body and its energy centres (chakras and aura) by either lightly touching your body or by hovering hands over your body.
Why is Reiki Needed?
Stress breaks down communication within your body, mind and spirit and many of us experience stress daily and have ways to ignore or cope with it, but not to resolve it. This continues the cycle of discomfort and dis-ease in your body and mind.
Reiki actively works to restore the body, mind and spirit communication so that you can thrive! When your body communicates effectively, it can then heal itself; this is because the body and mind are one.
The chakras (the seven main energy centres of your body) are meant to take in subtle energy from the external environment and turn it into physical energy your body can use to balance itself. If the chakras are blocked or spinning in reverse this natural system is disturbed and you may be feeling out-of-sync with yourself or your life.
Is Reiki Safe?
Reiki is simple and gentle, effective and non-invasive. Every case/condition responds positively to Reiki. It can be used on its own or in conjunction with other forms of healing (conventional or alternative).
The Reiki Teacher/Master is channelling Reiki from source, not from themselves. They are facilitating the flow of energy by holding sacred space for you to receive what is coming to you from the source of all energy.
What are the Benefits of Reiki?
The benefits of Reiki are endless and limitless. They occur on all levels of the bodymind: physical, energetic, mental, emotional and spiritual.
Physically: Reiki can reduce or eliminate pain in the body and help injuries or dis-ease heal at a faster rate. You may find yourself sleeping better and notice an overall improvement in your hormones and how it feels to move your physical body.
Energetically: Reiki brings the chakras into alignment and balance, which allows your energy centres to receive energy and release it effectively. If you need calming, Reiki can sooth. If you need vitality, Reiki can provide.
Mentally: Reiki creates healthy space between the thoughts and consciousness allowing you to notice you are not your mind, or the thoughts you think. This provides clarity and ease in decision making. Reiki helps to quiet the mind so that your ‘heart voice’, or intuitive voice, can be heard by you.
Emotionally: Reiki can help to stabilize emotional responses, calming the fight or fight system in your body so your emotions can come become balanced and restored.
Spiritually: Reiki increases your connection with your highest self and the creator. This connection is what allows all other healing and shifting in your bodymind to take place. Reiki opens your crown chakra to receive source energy and improve your connection with the spirit world.
What are Sessions Like?
An initial session is 75-minutes. A typical follow-up session is 40-60 minutes in length. This includes a check-in with you, the client, as well as a full session and recommendations for follow-up. The session includes Reiki and an Intuitive Reading. If you would prefer to only receive Reiki (with no reading) that can be accommodated.
If a client would like a combination of Reiki and BodyTalk the session is booked for 75-90 minutes.
Sessions are conducted in a private room. The client rests on a massage table, fully clothed. The Teacher/Master can perform Reiki either by gently placing hands on the client’s body or, by hovering hands over the client’s body, depending on the comfort level of the client.
The best way to understand Reiki is to book a session and receive!
