What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. It is used to complement many other modalities of healing.

The person receiving Reiki either lies down or sits in a chair, in a relaxed position. They are fully clothed and covered with a sheet or blanket. The practitioner giving the Reiki energy uses their hands and either holds their hands above the person or uses a gentle touch (if the person is comfortable with being touched). Reiki energy is passed through the practitioner to the receiver. Sometimes the person receiving the Reiki energy will feel different sensations such as heat or tingling.

Additional details on Reiki

A non-invasive, spiritual approach to healing that uses a hands on technique to work with the body’s energy centers (Chakras).

Reiki works to balance the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of the individual by channelling Universal Life Force Energy. It restores energy which is lost due to disease or emotional disturbances of the body.

Reiki helps increase the body’s ability to heal itself. It brings about a balance in the body by loosening up blocked energy around the body. Reiki allows energy to flow in a healthy and natural way thus promoting the body to heal physically, emotionally and mentally. All people can benefit from Reiki; the young, old, sick and even healthy.

A fully clothed client can have many sensations throughout a session. It is unique to each individual. Depending on the client’s health, there can be physical sensations such as heat, cold, tingling on the skin, buzzing in the ears, and/or a feeling of warmth surrounding the body. Some clients may not feel anything, except a deep relaxation but this does not mean Reiki is not working.
