WHAT IS REIKI?
Reiki is a healing therapy with its roots in Japanese origin. Reiki comes from the words "Rei" meaning Universal Life and "Ki" meaning energy. Reiki is the energy that flows through every living thing. When this energy is weak or blocked in someone, they can suffer from both physical and emotional imbalances. During a Reiki session, the practitioner acts as a channel for this Universal Life energy and helps to create strong, free flowing energy throughout the clients body. Working with the principle that everyone has the ability to heal themselves when connected to their own life force energy, Reiki helps activate their own power to heal. This results in a reduction of stress, and helps restore physical and emotional well-being.
WHAT WILL I EXPERIENCE DURING A REIKI SESSION?
During a Reiki session, you will lie fully clothed on a massage table. We will discuss prior to the session if you prefer a hands-on or hands-off treatment as well as any sensitivities or discomfort to touch you may have in particular areas. At no time during a hands-on session will you be touched in any private areas. I will gently place my hands on certain areas of your bodies, paying particular attention to energy centres in the body, and hover my hands over others.
Some of the sensations that you might feel during a Reiki session are the feeling of heat or warmth,tingling or pulsing up or down the body,calming of excessive mental chatter, visual impressions such as colours, lights, or images or you might feel nothing at all. All clients have a different experience but the most commonly felt sensation is deep relaxation.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT TO EXPERIENCE AFTER THE REIKI SESSION?
Everyone experiences something a bit different after a Reiki session but the most common include profound relaxation, an improvement in sleep and digestion, release of accumulated daily stress, deepened mindfulness and awareness, increased creativity, and strengthening of the immune system.
DOES REIKI WORK EVERYTIME?
There is always some benefit gained from receiving a Reiki treatment but what is experienced and healed varies from person to person. Some results can be life changing where others are more subtle and gradual. The most common noticeable benefit is relaxation and reduced stress. Reiki can also provide immediate relief for a variety of aches and pains.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A DISTANT REIKI HEALING SESSION?
Prior to starting I will connect with you over the phone. It is helpful to provide a picture of yourself but not necessary. During the session you will lie in a comfortable place away from distractions. I will perform a distance Reiki healing session for one hour and then reconnect with you over the phone to recap the sensations that were experienced by both myself as the practitioner and you as the receiver of the Reiki. All of the benefits of Distance Reiki are the same as the hands-on Reiki healing.
