What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that promotes self healing and healing for others. It's a safe simple natural healing method that is administered by placing the hands gently along the head and torso while the client lay or sit fully clothed.
Reiki assists the body to RELAX, and the nervous system to down regulate giving clients a feeling of peace and calm. By entering this relaxed state we are allowing the mind body and spirit to begin to self heal, which is the first step to feel better and function better. Reiki is a whole system treatment that restores balance in the body. It also works well in conjunction with conventional medicine. People have reported less side affects from medication, improved digestion, better sleep, focus, memory and more! Receiving Reiki before and after major procedures, or surgeries can help your body gain strength to recover as quickly as possible.
Picture a river full of sticks and debris, the water only trickles downward. When the debris is removed the water is able to move in a more natural free flowing way. It is the same idea in the body. When your "ki" (Life force energy) is gunked with debris, negative energy is stored throughout your system making you feel sluggish, in a rut, muscle tension, stress, emotionally drained, and imbalanced. By receiving Reiki we are using "Rei" (higher power/wisdom) to break apart the effected areas of debris and charging it with positive healthy energy to restore balance throughout the body.
Reiki is also known for assisting one on their journey of personal development, aligning with higher self, and the soul's purpose. It can be a magikal road of self discovery, while peeling away the layers of past traumas, negative experiences and even old habits. Expect to gain a new perspective, and open up to new possibilities. An open mind can create a whole new world.
