What is Reiki?

Reiki is a holistic therapy and a form of energy healing. It originated in Japan in the late 1800s and it involves the transfer of energy from the practitioner to the patient.

The word “Reiki” comes from the Japanese words “rei” (universal) and “ki” (life energy).

This life energy is the same as known as “qi” (pronounced “chi”) in Traditional Chinese Medicine and as “prana” in India. This is also the same energy involved in Tai Chi exercise.

When this energy flows uninterrupted in our bodies, there is a balance and harmony within and around us, and we experience a sense of well-being. But energy can stagnate in the body and cause blocks where there has been physical injury or emotional pain, these energy blocks can cause stress and even physical or mental illness. Reiki aims to help the flow of energy and remove blocks in a similar way to acupuncture or acupressure.

Reiki health benefits…

Reiki aids healing in the whole person, including body, emotions, mind and spirit by creating many beneficial effects that include deep relaxation, emotional relief and feelings of peace, security and overall well-being.

Some of the conditions that Reiki has been used to help treat and alleviate symptoms are:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Chronic stress
  • Chronic pain
  • Fatigue syndromes
  • Infertility
  • Heart disease
  • Cancer
  • Neurodegenerative disorders
  • Autism
  • Crohn’s disease

As a Reiki practitioner, I do not offer diagnosis or promise to treat any conditions. It is important to reiterate that Reiki is an alternative healing therapy that enhances your body’s own ability to self heal and should be used as a complement to other medical treatments in order to facilitate the healing process and not as a replacement.

How does a Reiki session look like?

A Reiki session generally lasts about one hour, but it depends on your induvial case and condition.

Reiki is usually performed on a client who is fully reclined comfortably on a massage table or on a chair. Unlike a massage therapy session, you will be fully clothed. It is recommended that you wear loose-fitting comfortable clothing.

Whether or not the practitioner touches you it is up to you. Reiki can be done with light gentle pressure and static touch or with the practitioner’s hands a few centimetres above your body.

Reiki sessions can also be done at a distance.

Distant Reiki sessions last 50 minutes and can be scheduled at a mutually convenient time. During the session, it is best if you are lying down in a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed. Please note that no telecommunication connection is required for Reiki to be sent or received, but an initial call will be made before the session as preparation and to assess the current state of the patient.
