Reiki is non-invasive, gentle yet powerful and may be used with confidence alongside orthodox healthcare. As such, it expands treatment options. Reiki is not, however, an alternative to conventional medicine. You should therefore always consult a GP about your medical conditions and disclose that you are receiving complementary therapy sessions. Reiki's gentle energy is easily adapted to most medical conditions and may be used safely by people of all ages, including the newborn, pregnant mothers, surgical patients, the frail and the elderly in any situation.
What Happens During a Reiki Session?
A Reiki treatment is non-diagnostic, non-interventionist, non-manipulative and no pressure is applied. A session is usually carried out with the recipient lying down, or sitting, in a comfortable and peaceful environment. There is no need to remove any clothing as Reiki energy passes easily through all materials, including plaster casts.
The practitioner places their hands gently on or over the body; there is no massage or manipulation. Reiki can also be given over a distance.
Reiki may be experienced as a flow of energy, mild tingling, warmth, coolness, other sensations, or nothing at all.
A session usually lasts half to one hour in duration.
The practitioner will take a short case history prior to discussing treatment options. A treatment plan will be discussed and agreed with you, and reviewed as necessary. This will always be subject to your own preferences, and can be changed at any time in line with progress.
What are the Benefits?
Illness can be a time of great stress. Reiki can help us cope by encouraging relaxation and bringing balance to both mind and emotions.
Benefits reported by Clients/Patients include deep relaxation promoting a calm, peaceful sense of well being on all levels. Reiki encourages and supports positive personal choices such a improving diet, taking more exercise, devoting time for rest or leisure activities and may reduce the need for alcohol and tobacco. Engendering greater inner harmony and balance, regular Reiki treatments promote a calmer response to life's challenges.
Many of us however lead unhealthy lifestyles – high stress, insufficient sleep, food on the run and this shifts our Chakras out of balance or blocks them entirely. Our energy is lowered and we do not have the resources within to fight back. This disrupts our body’s energy flow and leaves us vulnerable to illness, feeling under par with a loss of emotional equilibrium. By using reiki and sound you clear the blocks in your body, and bring harmony and energy to the organs, muscles and nerves of the body allowing you to enjoy a fuller sense of living today!
