Reiki an ancient Japanese healing technique, is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen energy, or "Life Force", flows through all living things.
When this "Life Force" is low, we may experience problems sleeping, dealing with stress, and develope sickness. Reiki assists in increasing a person’s supply of life force.
Reiki treats the whole person on a physical, mental and emotional level. It has many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well being.
Research also shows that Reiki increases circulation and decreases tension levels in the body.
While lying fully clothed, a traditional Reiki treatment involves no tissue manipulation and is simply performed by placing and holding the hands, either by lightly touching or slightly away from the body, in locations around the feet, legs, abdomen, shoulders and head.
Reiki energy flows from the practitioner's hands into the client's energy field and body.
THE TRADITIONAL METHOD
While lying fully clothed, I place and hold my hands in locations on the body allowing the Reiki energy coming from my hands to enter the client's energy field and body.
During the treatment, I am often guided to brush, sweep, gently massage or gently rock areas of the body. I am often drawn to specific areas that require special attention, usually for pain relief, balancing or simply improving the flow of energy, and blood.
Clients' responses to this intuitive method vary but everyone commonly experience an "At Peace" feeling accompanied with a tingling sensation that is either hot or cold.
