Reiki was developed by Mikao Usui in Japan early in the 20th century, and is activated by intention. Reiki’s natural healing energy works on every level, not just the physical, and promotes the body’s regenerative self healing ability.
The Japanese word Reiki means ‘Universal Energy’. Eastern medicine has always recognised and worked with this energy, which flows through all living things and is vital to well-being. Known as ‘ki’ in Japan, ‘chi’ in China and ‘prana’ in India. Acupuncture, T’ai chi and Yoga are also based on the free-flow of this energy in a person.
What are the Benefits?
The energy of Reiki can be used to great effect in many ways. Reiki can accelerate the healing of physical problems, balance the emotions, and free us from restrictive mental attitudes. It may also improve the individual’s ability to connect with inner wisdom. Reiki is a non-invasive therapy that can be used with confidence alongside conventional medication or natural remedies because it acts in a complementary way.
What Happens During A Session?
A session is usually carried out with the client lying down or sitting, in a comfortable and peaceful environment. There is no need to remove any clothing. The practitioner places their hands gently, in a series of positions, on or over the body. The client’s system automatically draws in only as much Reiki as is needed, using it in whatever way is most appropriate at the time. Reiki may be felt as a flow of energy, mild tingling, warmth, coolness, other sensations, or nothing at all. Reiki is deeply relaxing, eases stress, and has a calming effect. The beneficial effects may be felt for several days.
