WHAT IS REIKI?

 

 

The name “Reiki” derives from a two part Japanese character which translates roughly as “Universal Life Force”. This is the unseen energy which fills the universe and animates all living things. It is the same energy which flows through the energy conduits (Meridians) of the body.

Without it nothing could grow or heal. Applying Reiki to the body is a gentle but powerful way to support and enhance the life force energy in any living thing and is a useful aid to healing both physical and emotional problems. It is suitable for any age group and all states of health. Reiki cannot be used to do harm. It is non-denominational, non-religious and available to all age groups and states of health.

Reiki also has a gentle philosophy which acts to reduce stress and tension in life. Many people who use Reiki find that, with time, this philosophy profoundly alters how they view themselves and the world.

THE REIKI PRINCIPLES:

JUST FOR TODAY:
I do not worry,
I am not angry,
I honour everyone around me,
I earn my living honestly,
I show gratitude to every living thing.

You may wish to think about the Reiki principles and see how they could fit into your own life-style.

HOW IS REIKI USED?

Reiki can be used on many levels for healing

  • As a First-aid measure to reduce immediate pain and trauma.
  • As a full body treatment for a deeper healing to release any energy blockages and relieve the ailments they cause. Most conditions will respond.
  • To stimulate the elimination systems of the body and promote detoxification.
  • To promote deep relaxation for stress relief.

The essence of healing is that it is a change of state for body and mind. Every system in the body has its own inner wisdom and “knows” what it must do to give balance and harmony to the whole.

Healing is an individual process which takes its own time. All that is needed to begin is a willingness and intent to engage in the process and be part of it. No one else can heal you – you heal yourself. Reiki works gently with both body and mind to aid the process.

HOW IS REIKI GIVEN?

A full treatment is given with the recipient lying fully clothed except for shoes on a couch or sitting in a chair. It is usually a hands-on treatment with the therapist placing their hands on a sequence of positions on the body to transmit the Reiki energy.

It is not intrusive or in any way embarrassing and most people enjoy the contact. When receiving Reiki you will feel pleasant warmth or tingling in the area being treated. Most people easily relax deeply feeling a release of tension and anxiety which allows healing to begin. In this state of deep relaxation the healing systems of the body are free to make whatever adjustments are necessary to improve health. Some people fall asleep during treatment and awake fully refreshed and revitalised.

Reiki can help anyone – you do not have to be ill to benefit from its calming and relaxing effect
