What is Reiki?
Reiki is a simple, non-intrusive and extremely powerful therapy. A treatment can last up to an hour or so. It is usually carried out with the patient fully clothed, laying on a therapy couch or can be given in a sitting position if the patient prefers. The therapist gently places his/her hands over the patient in various positions, from head to toe. Each position is held for 3/5 minutes (or as long as may be necessary). No pressure is exerted, making Reiki an ideal treatment for the very young, elderly, disabled, pregnant women and those recovering from surgery. The whole body is treated, not just an isolated area. The energy goes where it is needed.
When undergoing a treatment you will feel a very pleasant sensation of warmth and possibly a gentle tingling in the area being treated. As the energy comes into balance, stress and tension are released and a deep sense of relaxation develops. A wonderful feeling of well-being is established. You may even drift off to sleep!
Reiki complements and increases the effectiveness of most kinds of medication and other treatments. It is completely safe, natural and holistic (it is not attached to any religion). As a means of healing it has been in use for thousands of years. It is healing energy in the truest sense.
Reiki can be beneficial in most cases of stress, tension, headaches, sinusitis, menstrual problems, cystitis, migraines, asthma, psoriasis, ME, constipation, eczema, arthritis, menopausal problems, aches and pains, anxiety, depression, insomnia and sciatica. Chronic ailments also respond well.
Reiki does not have to be used solely for healing, it can give you a wonderful boost, even if you are feeling well. Reiki can do you no harm.
