What is Reiki / Energy Healing?
A little background
For many people the concept of an Energy Healing therapy may seem a rather 'new age' woolly idea. For some it may come as a surprise to learn that Reiki as a healing modality originated in Japan and was developed in the 1920s by Mikao Usui, progressing after his passing through two major players - Dr Hayashi and Mrs Takata.
Mrs Takata refined the complicated Japanese style, simplifying it for western minds. She began teaching this in Hawaii and many other places in the United States. It is important to understand that if it was not for her Reiki may fallen into obscurity and not become firmly established as a globally acknowledged healing therapy. It is used as a complementary therapy in many hospitals and healthcare settings throughout the world.
Reiki is a high vibrational energy for healing that flows through the practitioner's hands and works in synergy with our own life force energy.
Reiki comes directly from source through higher intelligence. Life force energy is crucial to well-being and flows through every living thing from plants to people. The healing power of Reiki maintains health and helps to promote energetic harmony, relaxation and stress relief. Reiki heals in many areas such as fear, trust issues, anxiety grief and depression.
On a physical plane Reiki accelerates the healing of illness or injury, basically enhancing recovery, relief of symptoms and reduction of pain. Reiki works well with antibiotics and complements conventional and alternative therapies.
How it heals
Reiki heals by going through the effected parts of the energy field, whether they be physical, emotional in their make-up or a combination of both, charging them with positive energy and raising the vibration in the effected areas.
This pure Reiki energy causes negative energy to break away and dissolve, resulting in clear space and healed energy pathways allowing the life force to flow naturally once more.
Healing can, and does, occur on many different levels: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.
What happens in a session
A Reiki session is a deeply relaxing and positive experience resulting in more clarity and balance. Clients remain fully clothed while receiving the healing energy through the Reiki practitioner's hands. Many people experience the benefits from a single session, whether for a specific physical issue or emotional concern, while others may need or choose to have a number of sessions.
Reiki provides such a good feeling that you may decide to book regular sessions for general well-being.
Distant healing is becoming an increasingly popular choice, clients receive the healing soothing experience in the comfort of their own homes.
