Reiki is an ancient Japanese natural healing method that promotes relaxation, reduces stress and restores balance in the body and being. The word itself means ‘universal life force’, an energy which is all around us. As a therapy it works by channelling this energy in the form of hands –on- healing. Reiki benefits the client on all levels – the spiritual, emotional, mental and physical by releasing any blocks in our chakras. This releases any tension in the body and creates as sense of peace and tranquillity.
How does Reiki healing work?
The clients simply lie or sit down fully clothed. The practitioner then gently places their hands over different parts of the body for a few minutes at a time. The emphasis is on the chakras in the body. There are seven main chakras and they are located along the spine extending out the front and back of the body. The therapy is different for everybody, generally people feel at peace and a “comfort” sensation during a treatment; others feel carried by a flow of energy.
