What is Reiki?
Reiki is a japanese word meaning universal Life Energy (Rei is Universal and Ki is Life Energy). It is the vital force that flows through all matter and can be activated for a powerful form of healing called Reiki.
Reiki is in no way a faith system.
How does it work?
A Reiki therapist channels energy throughout his or her hands into the client’s body to enhance the body’s own natural ability to heal itself. Reiki works on all levels of a person’s being, thereby reaching the cause, as well as physical symptoms.
All illness and disease comes about as a result of the natural flow of energy being impaired in some way. Reiki helps to reinstate and balance the flow of energy. When the energy flows correctly, it is much easier to take up the task of living life as we would desire. Attitudes change, tiredness recedes.
What is disease?
Disease is a state of disruption in the physical, emotional or mental body of a person, caused by a blockage within the energy field of that person. It is said of blockages that they are caused by circumstances that we enter into and are exposed to within our daily life. In Reiki, we treat the blockage, not the illness.
Reiki is a simple but powerful process. Treatments and frequency are individually tailored to the client’s needs and condition. In most cases, the treatment lasts for about an hour and is carried out on a couch. The client remains fully dressed while the Reiki therapist goes through a set healing format. This format is agreed with the patient before the treatment. Reiki carries very few contra-indications. However, the therapist may well refuse treatment to a woman in the early stages of pregnancy. Gender, age and condition are of no concern to the Reiki therapist as the client’s own body controls the healing process by taking the amount of energy it requires at any one session.
The client may well feel a pleasant sensation of warmth or, occasionally, coldness in the area being treated. As the treatment progresses, stress is released and a feeling of wellbeing is usually experienced. Chronic illnesses usually respond well to Reiki though, in these cases, some slight discomfort might be experienced in the beginning. As Reiki sessions progress, the low level of the energy, usually associated with illness or disease, will begin to rise. When this happens, recovery starts to become easy to see. Not only do a client’s physical symptoms begin to go away, but the will to get better is strengthened and motivation becomes the client’s best weapon for recovery. Many clients, who come for Reiki at Beauty Works Horsham become so relaxed after a couple of treatments that, within moments of a treatment starting, they are fast asleep.
The traditional Reiki training method, if done correctly, is 99% effective and 100% safe. Reiki energy is a very gentle form of healing using a very light touch technique. It will not cause any harm.
“I was in so much pain; I was astonished that such a simple therapy could be so healing . There was a warmth from the flow of energy; very calming and relaxing. The next day I felt really energised and could move my arm in all directions – a Miracle ! I am still in awe of Reiki and would thoroughly recommend it.”
