Serenity And Spirit ~ Reiki
Reiki is a safe, non-intrusive healing practice. It involves the transfer of energy from practitioner to patient to enhance the body’s natural ability to heal itself through the balancing of energy. Reiki seeks to restore order to the body whose vital energy has become unbalanced.
Reiki has been used for healing for all types of conditions and ailments. Common effects of treatment include improved sleep and mood, reduced anxiety and pain relief.
Reiki (pronounced Ray- Key) is an ancient Japanese practice which harnesses the power of the natural universal energy force that exists within and around every living system. It was developed in to a method of natural healing in the 1800’s by Japanese born Dr Mikao Usui. Although Reiki has a firm spiritual grounding, there is no belief system attached to it, all that is required is an open mind and a desire to be healed both physically and emotionally.
Reiki channels energy through the hands of a trained practitioner, directly to the client. The treatment is given while you are fully clothed and either lying on a couch or sitting in a chair. It is a very gentle treatment with the practitioner’s hands either resting gently on or slightly above, key points on your body. During the treatment you will often feel the sensation of warmth and a slight tingling in your body, or on occasion coolness. Even if you do not experience any strong sensations, you can rest assured that the energy is working.
Reiki is a holistic treatment which will heal, re-balance and restore harmony within you on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level. The energy will instinctively flow to where it is most needed, allowing your body to regenerate and heal itself naturally.
Reiki can be used to assist in the healing process for many ailments both physical and mental. It is particularly effective in relieving stress and anxiety and alleviating depression. It can also help accelerate healing for many ailments and relieve pain including headaches, and muscular pains. However, bear in mind that Reiki should never be used as a substitute for medical treatment but can work well alongside as an excellent complimentary therapy.
