Reiki is a traditional hands-on complementary healing method which uses energy channelled by the practitioner. I practise Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki which is the original Japanese method given to Dr Mikao Usui. He passed the teachings to Dr Chujiro Hayashi who initiated Hawaya Takata, who brought Reiki to the western world.
Reiki is channelled by the practitioner, primarily by the hands, to the client, to enable the client to utilise the energy to heal themself.
Reiki works with the mind, body and spirit, bringing them into balance and alignment, allowing the person to experience a sense of relaxation, peace and harmony. Both emotional and physical disturbances can be addressed as Reiki works on discovering, easing or releasing the source or cause of the problem, rather than simply treating the symptoms.
During a session the client relaxes, either while sitting or lying down, as the practitioner places their hands either on or around the client’s body using a variety of positions. This allows the healing to be tailored specifically to the needs of the client rather than adopting a ‘one size fits all’ approach.
Some of the benefits of Reiki include:
- A deep sense of relaxation, peace and tranquillity
- Relief from physical or emotional disturbance and pain
- Balance and harmony within the subtle anatomy
- Release from stress and stress-related problems
- Accelerated physical healing, the body is helped and supported in healing itself
